* Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year *
A selection of my festive photo's!
Thank you to everyone for your support and help in my first year of blogging!
Coat: Jack Wills
Chilly, crisp, frosty mornings ........ just want to feel warm and snug?
Wrap yourself up in A/W's must have cover-up. This one chic piece can transform the most simple of outfits. The cape....a soft knit jumper, skinny pants and leather boots creates a great casual look.
Accessorize up? Add a scarf, hat or headband for extra cosyness! My collection of hats is very minimal (not many styles suit me), but I decided to branch out.
With Thanks to our friends Martin & Tracy Killick xxx
Winter sun.......... yes please!
What better way to spend my last holiday of the year......a girly weekend in Dubai with our friend Tracy, my mum and my sister!
An action-packed few days... a trip up the Burj Khalifa, shopping in the Dubai Mall, an abra boat ride around Souk Madinat Jumeirah and much, much more!
Conscious of the warm temperatures and respecting the Islamic dress code I packed loose, cool clothing and comfy flats. Sunnies, messenger bag, my hair tied up and of course....my camera!
Skirts & Sweaters Season!
For a simple transitional combo this Autumn team a soft sweatshirt with a textured skirt. The balance of a warm top but bare legs and skate pumps is perfect for that downtime vibe.
I love to vary my look; from city chic...to beach babe....to country girl. But today's look.....Sports Style. The sun was still shining but the temperature slightly chilly........perfect for a skirt/sweatshirt combo!
Love matching pieces? For me it depends on the pieces or the print! I love matching tailored separates.... especially cute short suits. But I was instantly drawn to this landscape print casual two piece!
Sail away with nautical inspired pieces......
One of my favourite colours has to be navy. A classic, sophisticated and smart shade that is more forgiving than black and I think suits pretty much everyone. A key colour for a nautical vibe and a trend that never goes out of season, here are some of my nautical ideas for whatever the weather:
- Stripe sundress
- Navy/white shorts & stripe tee
- Stripe skirt & plain tee
- Stripe espadrilles/white pumps
- Navy blazer, stripe tee and chino's
- Tailored navy trousers, stripe blouse and pumps
- Stripe scarf or bag
As day two's adventures included the old town and Barcelona's marina (Port Vell) a soft, thin stripe tee, navy high waisted shorts and flats seemed appropriate! Plus the weather was amazing and I wanted to make the most of being able to wear shorts!
