It has been hottin' up here in Kent this week so I took full advantage.......a trip to the seaside/beach!!  #fishandchips!!

Pinterest inspired I wore my loose open-back heart print cami and soft cream leather shorts.  On hot days all you want is comfy, loose, but stylish pieces.......for me its shorts most of the time!  Added with some subtle but matching Michael Kors accessories; earrings, dog tag necklace, watch and rings.

Hair by Holly
My hair today was definitely being put up.....I went for the slight 90's half-up, half-down knot.  With thick hair its always good to put your hair totally up or half up off you neck to cool you down.

Costa Smeralda
Bella....the only word to describe the island of Sardinia.  Beautiful white sandy beaches, quaint Italian architecture and the best ice cream ever!  

My friend Lisa and I only had 1 week on this picturesque island so we decided to make the most of it and hire a car.  #roadtrip!

First stop was La Pelosa beach, Stintino. Situated in the north-western tip, the shallow turquoise waters are accompanied by an ancient watchtower, the Torre della Pelosa.

In and out of the car, exploring the island I wore my new purchase from Zara....my dungarees.  Love or hate?  I love them!  Soft, light denim and easy to wear in the blazing heat.  

Headbands
Love, love, love!!  My headbands are an absolute must on a hot, sunny day. Patterned long headbands can really spice up a summery look and cool you down at the same time.  I always love European girls with bronzed tans and long, wavy beach hair.............complete with a headband.

I have made my own headbands using floral and bold fabrics.  Otherwise Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Urban Outfitters and Accessorize offer some of the best unique, delicate hair accessories.

Lunchtime and we stopped off at Santa Teresa, a town of colourful clean buildings and streets and a traditional square filled with shops and restaurants.
Baia Sardinia was the next stop........where we found Ice cream and We Positive bracelets!
 Just caught the sunset on the roadtrip back!

Albufeira
I caught up with my Portuguese friends today.....Eduardo and Ronnie.  With some work to be done on my tan I chose my light denim Zara shorts and an embroidered black smock top. 

For those of you that are petite, you will know that it can be hard to find the perfect length and fit in shorts and skirts.  These loose fit, short frayed shorts are not too tight on my thighs and create longer looking pins.

On the plus side I always browse in the children's department where I found this beautifully embroidered smock top aged 12-13 years.  No VAT and if you are like me and like to be different, nobody else will have the same!

Buddy's Restaurant - Brilliant for anyone visiting Albufeira's Old Square!
Accessorize up with some added beads and birds bracelets!!
Gale beach sunset.............the most beautiful view to end a day.
