Linen... sustainable summer favourite!
Made from the flax plant, the textile is valued for its coolness in hot temperatures. The only problem can be its potential to "screw-up" easily.
I found this yellow co-ord linen set in one of my favourite boutiques in old town Albufeira. Unique colour, loose, comfortable yet casual. I do prefer supporting local boutiques and finding something a little bit different. The whole shopping experience is often more personal too!

Swimsuit season ...
Sadly coming to an end for us in the UK, but just starting for those of you around the world! Beautiful sunsets, enjoying a good book on the beach, relaxing with family and feeling healthy - my favourite.
Swimsuits have definitely become more stylish over the last few years, plunge necklines, high cut, one shoulder and vibrant prints. Figure flattering on all body shapes, and ideal with a pair of shorts/skirt. I was always a bikini girl until the last few years - longing for that brown stomach! But I loved the fun tiger print of this swimsuit and the more revealing cut.

Cycling shorts... Love them or hate them?
Major Spring trend, and I personally love them! They are making a comeback from the 90's when my mum and Princess Diana rocked the cycling shorts look. Comfortable, versatile and this season's "cool-girl" staple.
Perfect for those slightly warmer days, this tomboy style can be worn in so many different ways. I personally will wear mine with a baggy t-shirt, jumper or shirt. I like to stick with my theory of tight on the bottom half and baggy on the top... or vice versa!

Ponta de Piedade...
My new favourite place in the Algarve! Hidden, unspoilt views with the most amazing rock formations and secret caves.
Definitely a "must-see" and an Instagram picture perfect location. I really love exploring new places, wandering and capturing great shots with my camera.
Outfit for the day was my new Pull & Bear mini combined with a classic white Mango top. Always trending, Gingham is a summertime check available to everyone. Shoes, jackets, accessories, pink, blue or black, whatever takes your fancy.
Check out my photo's of the incredible steps built into the cliff face... and yes I did walk to the bottom and back up!

Home to Kent life...
Houndstooth, plaid, tweed, tartan, prince of wales check, I love a smart checked pattern. A tailored blazer or skirt with minamilistic pieces provide perfect layers for Autumn/Winter.
Mixed textiles... a lace long sleeved top, frill houndstooth dress and patent shoes were my "back to school" inspiration. A little more sophisticated with an improvised Chanel hair bow, even the smallest of details can spice up your look!
