Get ready for your beach holiday with Vida Moda!

Holiday time!

“At last”, we all gasp. It’s finally the long awaited School holidays. We look forward to them as the beginning of a well earned break from the panic to make sure all uniforms are laundered and ready for daily wear, sports kits available for those last minute declarations of “it’s football practice today” just as you’re getting in the car, the nagging to get everyone out of bed, breakfasted and dressed ready to leave on time and of course the daily trek to school followed by the car park war.

The annual family holiday is an exciting prospect and of course having spent a fortune on what you hope is a guaranteed fun packed break, you are in charge of the holiday wardrobes. More expense as everyone has grown out of or worn out last year’s must have casual fashions.

Summer Dresses – a further option – Strawberries and Cream!

Its the second week of Wimbledon and things are hotting up, literally! We are in the midst of a mini heatwave and as I write this we are due a storm that might take the humidity away! On court it has been a hot day too, spare a thought for the poor players charging around in this heat. Ladies be well aware that Rafa may well require numerous shirt changes especially if he has another tough match in the heat like the one today. Andy Murray won too. In fact the top of the men’s draw is still intact but the ladies draw threw up two very surprising exits today. The Williams sisters both lost and while neither were seeded in the top 4 you’d always expect them to feature given their impressive past performances in the tournament. The Ladies singles is anyone’s title this year, could this be the year that Maria Sharapova comes back and wins a second title? One or other of the Williams sisters has won The Ladies Singles Title at Wimbledon 9 times in the last 11 years, Maria Sharapova and Amélie Mauresmo were the winners in the remaining two years. Only one of the last 11 finals did not feature a Williams sister so 2011 is definite break with recent tradition for the ladies.

So what of one of Wimbledon’s other traditions? Well of course you need some contrasting colour to really bring out the greenness of Wimbledon and what better colour than Red. Strawberries and Cream, the sweet side of Wimbledon, perfect for a sunny day and as English a tradition as the tournament itself. To celebrate the tradition of Strawberries and Cream at Wimbledon we are have a beautiful Red and White Plus Size Summer Dress for you. We also have some Plus Size White Linen Trousers that will complement it and leave you feeling cool and comfortable on court!

Plus Red and White Summer Dress with Plus White Line Trousers

Red & White Summer Dress and White Linen Trousers

As the weather is hot if you are going to Wimbledon you need to dress appropriately. We recommend some nice cotton or linen, sunscreen and possibly a large floppy hat! Unfortunately Vida Moda does not have a collection of summer hats, but we do have some wonder full summer dresses. You’ll love this Plus Size Red and White Print Summer Dress with a scooped neck, wide shoulder straps, slit pockets on the side seams and a beautifully deep handkerchief hem. Available in size 16 to size 22 and made from 100% cotton. This dress is perfect for an outing to Wimbledon or indeed to take on holiday and it is on special offer at £48.
