I don’t know about you, but I’m getting rather excited about my summer holiday starting soon. For many of us our summer break means some much-needed time off and a chance to recharge our batteries with a spot of sunshine. Today I’m sharing some of my top thrifty fashion picks for summer 2016, I’m showing you where to find an amazing voucher code that’ll get you £20 off your new holiday wardrobe AND I’m giving you the chance to win 1 of 3 spa experience vouchers to really kick-start your holiday in style! Read on to find out more and how to enter this fabulous giveaway…Whether you’re going to some luxurious far-flung destination or are enjoying a relaxing staycation here in the UK, it’s simply the chance to check-out and rest that makes summer holidays so appealing. And, of course, there’s no better time to treat yourself to a spot of holiday shopping too! Glancing through my wardrobe earlier this week I realised that, apart from a couple of floral t-shirts, I’m seriously lacking in any holiday attire. I have no flip flops, no beach cover-up and not one single pair of shorts. It was time to shop!
But, as you may have gathered, it’s rather unusual for me to go shopping for anything new. I’m a thrifty gal, and those money-saving habits die hard. I decided that shopping online for my holiday wardrobe was the way to go, as I could browse plenty of shops all at once and could do my favourite type of filtering: “order by lowest price”! I also knew that I wasn’t going to get sucked into paying all kinds of delivery costs, so my first stop (before I even began shopping for clothes!) was searching for money-saving vouchers and discount codes.
Thankfully I found a WHOPPING £20 off voucher code for Very.co.uk so you can guess where I started my holiday shopping, eh?? The voucher can be found here at GopherDeals.co.uk and it entitles you to £20 off a £40 shop. That means everything I’m adding to my basket is technically going to be half price. So you can see why I wanted to splash out at Very for my holiday wardrobe this year. In terms of footwear (this IS Tuesday Shoesday, after all) I found some wedged espadrilles that would be perfect for day-to-evening wear and they were only £8. Bargain. Of course, I needed some beach shoes too so these colourful sandals are a winner for me. The embellishments make them a little more interesting than just another pair of flip flops, and could be paired with a dress for dinner if needed. The fruity colours will go with most of my holiday wardrobe and they’re reduced in the sale to just £9. Deal!I found a Myleene Klass swimsuit in on-trend tropical print already reduced in the clearance section to only £9.50. I’ve also found the ideal beach cover-up to go with it – this huge sarong in a variety of colours was only £10 – and tie-dye is a really big trend right now. A sarong can be used in so many ways for a summer holiday; tied casually around the waist as you grab an ice-cream, it could be wrapped around your shoulders in the evenings for warmth, you could tie it around your body and cinch in the waist with a belt to use it as a dress, and it could even be spread out on the beach as the ultimate spot to lie down and sunbathe. So many practical uses, plus it takes up almost no room in a suitcase, it’s on-trend AND it’s a bargain – what more could I ask for?
Now, on to the details of the giveaway I’m launching today. The lovely folk at GopherDeals were not content with supplying £££s-worth of discount codes for you all on their website, oh no.
