Summer Brights
BARCELONA ... home to tapas, sangria, Gaudi's architecture and more importantly shopping!!  Booked as a surprise birthday treat for my mum, we enjoyed 4 days of girly time!

The days plan was Barcelona Zoo, Parc de la Ciutadella and a little more browsing of the shops.  A day for a practical core summer item .... a summer LBD.

Simple, effortless and with an open back.... my coral Mango dress was much needed.  It was a super hot day, so this loose, fluid fabric, flowy dress kept me feeling cool and stylish.
Accessories can make a simple dress shine... a tassled suede bag and floral yellow headband purchased the day before from Shankara Barcelona (a great boho style shop).
Dress:  Mango
Headband:  Shankara Barcelona
INTO the BLUE
Going away on a city break?  Essential to pack lightly and be organised with your outfits. Matching together or worn as seperates this twin chic set was first on my list.  Soft, tailored, textured linen material, the top and shorts nailed this summer seasons bloom prints trend.

Like any vibrant pattern, the bright blue floral against the crisp white needs no explanation.  Keeping it simple, I paired a delicate, layered necklace and other plain gold jewellery.  

Fresh, cool, tailored and bold; enjoy my co-ordinates of the day......

Don't be afraid to match a whole outfit... even if it is print overload!

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!
