Summer Fashion with TK Maxx*


Summer is officially here, and what better way to get in the mood than to do a holiday shop! TK Maxx kindly invited me to try and discover their ‘ridiculous possibilities’ in store and show off my new outfits in some of my favourite locations… [Photos & video by Nutty Pear]



Ridiculous Possibilities is the new campaign from labels-for-less retailer TK Maxx. Bringing to life the delightfully different yet brilliant opportunities made possible when shopping at their stores. So I thought I’d head in store and see what ridiculously wonderful items I could find to kit me out for summer.

Victoria Park

With it's playground, paddling pool and bandstand, Victoria Park is a popular Cardiff location - especially as right outside it's gates are some delicious foodie places too!

What I'm wearing:

Blue ripped jeans
Floral jacket
White trainers
Grey baggy tee

I was super chuffed when I found this funky floral jacket in TK Maxx, it’s casual yet bold and vibrant. Combining it with a pair of blue ripped jeans and some high-tops completed the outfit.

Rhossili Bay


Rhossili Bay is one of the top 10 beaches in the world, and with it's 3 miles of golden sand and stunning coastline, it's easy to see why!

What I'm wearing:

Blue dress
Light denim jacket
Black sandals
Blue handbag
Black sunglasses

This floaty blue dress is fantastic for a beach trip, and look how cute the back of it is!

Cardiff Castle


Lounge on the lawn, or go and learn about some history in Cardiff Castle (don't forget you get a free key if you live local)

What I'm wearing:

Pink dress
Denim jacket
Pink sandals
Sun hat

This light and cheery outfit was ideal for my day trip to Cardiff Castle, and the sun hat made sure I wasn’t squinty when I was appreciating the beautiful welsh heritage site.

Barry Island


Barry Island (made famous by Gavin & Stacey) is a popular destination for all ages with it's wide range of activities, arcades and lovely beach.


What I'm wearing:

Blue dress
Denim jacket
Black flipflops
Sun hat

The flipflops were a steal at £9.99 and they ensured my feet didn’t get scolded on the hot floor in Barry! Teamed up with the sun hat and I was good to go!

Penarth Pier



I love Penarth Pier! It's literally on my doorstep and always has things going on in the building from film screenings to star gazing. 

What I'm wearing:

Black playsuit
Blue handbag
Black heels

I love the fact that I can dress up with this blue handbag or dress down; it works great with this slightly more formal look and has plenty of room for sun cream!

Cardiff Bay



I'm so very lucky to live so close to Cardiff Bay. It's not only a fun place to visit in the day, but it also has some fantastic bars perfect for a summer drink or two!

What I'm wearing:

Red dress
Black heels
Black clutch
Black sunglasses


I spotted this red dress in TK Maxx and just couldn’t resist. It flows so nicely in the breeze and glows in the sunshine. Paired with some black heels and I was ready for some cocktails!

Caswell Bay


While Swansea has lots of amazing places to visit, Caswell Bay is a personal favourite of mine. It's definitely the underdog of Welsh beaches, and a popular destination for surfers (or for those who just want to rummage on the rocks like me!)

What I'm wearing:

Beige beanie
Grey baggy tee
Black shorts
White trainers

This grey tee is the ultimate summer basics must-have! It’s casual, comfy and only £9.99!

Sully Coast Walk


This coast walk is gorgeous on a summers day; with views of England and plenty of wildlife along the way you really can't go wrong!

What I'm wearing:

Black playsuit
Denim jacket
Sun hat
Black sunglasses
Black sandals 
Not only are the sandals stylish, but they’re also easy on the feet while going on little adventures like this coast walk!

I felt like I was on a bit of a treasure hunt in TK Maxx, discovering things I didn't even know I needed! I'm very happy with what I bought and I'm even tempted to buy one of their swimsuits as they looked super comfy and flattering, they also won't break the bank! Win, win! I'd love to know your thoughts on my outfits and what you'll be wearing this summer!
