Personally there's nothing worse than hunting around the high street looking for holiday clothes, especially in October - all of the summer clothes are either off the shelf or there is very little left of the sales. 

When I'm abroad I very much like to showcase my personality through my wardrobe which is where Iron Fist come into the equation. I own LOTS of Iron Fist clothes and quite frankly I can't get enough! So, naturally, when it came to cramming my suitcase with outfits, there were a number of Iron Fist items, along with other alternative pieces to make up my holiday wardrobe. 

Some of this holiday was all about lazing by the pool and other parts were exploring the culture of Cyprus. My perfect outfit for exploring abroad is a pair of comfortable denim shorts, trainers and a strappy cami top. The Iron Fist Skull A Billy Cami is the perfect option for this sort of occasion, in the heat is light-wearing and looks fantastic tucked into shorts or even out. 

Away from wearing this top casually it would look great with a little black skirt on a night out and that will be my next outfit of choice when I venture to the local alternative club here in Leeds. 

While we were in Cyprus, we also celebrated Ashton's birthday which involved heading into Paphos for some drinks on the final evening. For this I chose to wear the Iron Fist Bat Collar Velvet Dress - perfect for a night in the old town or a dinner date, this beautiful velvet dress isn't too short (just above knee length on me and I'm 5'7") and is fitted under the bust. 

With the velvet material, the dress just looks simply stunning and my favourite feature in particular is the white bat collar, it adds a bit of colour as well as being the perfect accessory to the dress. Size wise I'm wearing an XL, I'm usually 12/14 but because of my bust I thought I'd go bigger to be on the safe side and it's a good job I did because they were pretty darn snug! 

I couldn't have an outfit post without a pair of shorts now could I?! These Kind of A Freak Shorts were lushhhhh. Like the dress, they are a velvet look and texture and I literally fell in love with them when I took them out of the packet.

I love that it has back pockets that perfectly fit my iPhone 6 in and the 'Freak' patch on the waistline that stands out and fits perfectly with the shorts and style trying to be portrayed - I'm different, so what?!

I got these in an XL which equates to a 14 so they fit well on my bum but because they were high waist they were pretty roomy at the top. With gorgeous floral embroidery these really do fit the summer/festival vibe but also are in my wardrobe to wear with fishnets and my docs.

What I love about Iron Fist is that it makes my personality come out of its shell when I'm abroad or at home, so if you're looking for something different I'd certainly head to the Iron Fist website or find a local stockist! I'm already planning my next alternative holiday wardrobe, now just to book the holiday!
