Stripes & Frills
Wishing for an endless summer?  Trying to cling to your sunny staples?!!  I definitely am!

Autumn is officially here......which sadly means wearing more clothes.  Even on our last night in Portugal, it was chilly. But it did mean I could wear my new favourite dress from Zara  #thatdress

Flowy, easy, flattering and bang on trend.... I cannot stop wanting to wear this dress!  Button cuffs, buttoned back and feminine frilled hemline, I appreciate the small details on this dress.  

Minimal accessories and an effortless bun... this look was all about the dress.  Just remember subtlety is key....

After hours, days and months of rain in the UK my Portuguese Paradise was calling!

With my packed essentials; cotton dresses, sunnies, hat and swimwear.... my sister and I were off.  The trip was spent relaxing on our favourite beaches, eating wonderful cuisine and catching up with our friends. Simply the best feeling when we touch down in our second home... we never want to leave!

Finally felt like summer in Salgados which = dresses! Simple, easy, loose and cool.  No need to even need to think about how to co-ordinate, just slip it on and you are away!  Easy breezy...

One of the best places to stroll in the late afternoon and evenings was just down from our villa.  The most picturesque palm walk way....

This summer's staple...crochet!

Colourful, crafty and cool, this cover-up with a high neckline and cut-out sides offers a flattering shape for all.  Showcasing crochet at its best... this dress is part of H&M's Coachella Collection.  Embroidered denim cut offs, Aztec prints and rainbow crochet, you'll want to ensure a piece from this collection is in your wardrobe.

After a morning on the beach, my sister and I strolled around the old town of Albufeira in boutiques and some of my favourite shops; Calzedonia and Parfois.  A clear hit with the Portuguese locals, several people commented and asked me where the dress was from!

SunShine
YELLOW: This season's hottest shade.

With blonde hair, yellow is not always the first colour I would pick but the frill sleeves, button detail and shade of this Zara number caught my eye and I was ordering online immediately!

I waited until the last evening (best tan!) to wear this dress and decided to leave my beach hair.
I am always on the hunt for dresses that can be worn both casually with flats or smart with a pair of heels. You can pretty much re-create a different look with the same pieces.  

Button-up for a smart, formal, evening look.
Unbutton for a casual, sleeker day look. 


Tones of pink and purple CND shellac nails with the yellow will "nail" the look!
