A few weeks ago I returned from an amazing holiday in Vietnam. I was only there for 2 weeks, and in that time I visited Hanoi, Hoi An and Ha Long Bay. It was a place I had never ever imagined going too but I am so glad I did!
The people of Vietnam did like to laugh and stare at myself and my boyfriend, as well as film and photograph us. Most of the times we waved at them and said “chúc mừng năm mới” (Happy New Year – it was Tet whilst we were there), which really delighted them! But it did get a little much towards the end of the trip. It could have been our height, my pretty dresses, my larger figure, my tattoos… who knows. It did bother me rather a lot and but not enough to change out of my pretty dresses!
And so without further ado, here are a small selection of my 3000 or so holiday images…

My only clothing related disappointment came in the form of the Marilyn swimming costume from Pinup Girl Clothingmarilyn
I bought it in a 2XL in the hope that it would be a tummy sucking option. I guessed that I would have to wear a bikini with it, as pictured, however, the 2XL was not quite firm enough in the stomach for me, and an XL would have meant limited boob room. I tested it out once in the water and felt fab, but I preferred my other swimming pieces.

I hope you enjoyed a peek at my holiday photos and my sunny weather wardrobe. Hopefully you will be inspired to visit Vietnam – it is beautiful and well priced and so worth going too.
