Flowers and Bees

Olá! Bom dia!


My first blog post from my new home.  Yes!  My sister and I moved to Portugal last month.  A decision that was a long time coming…

Beautiful sunshine, delicious food and my favourite beaches… I cannot wait to share with you my idea’s this year.  A new home, a new venture……surely a new wardrobe?!

Time to step into Spring with the ultimate effortless but high impact shoe…the backless loafer.  Great to start airing those feet and welcoming some warmth.  I fell in love with these black leather bee detail loafer’s whilst shopping in Dubai last November…and have been dying to wear them.

Top-up the look with another season favourite… power frills, embroidery, ripped jeans and florals.  Kinda girly but not too much!


Tchau for now! I am off to enjoy the sunshine! x

SunShine Strolls
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....

Hippie
The 70's are back ...!

Fashion trends come back around and this season is no exception.  So ditch the skinny jeans and pull out the palazzo pants!

A day out with my sister to the quaint, historic town of Rye in East Sussex, I embraced the "hippie" style!  

Once the haunt of smugglers, Rye regularly attracts tourist and film crews.  Ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passages we enjoyed a stroll around the shops, and afternoon tea!

The palazzo trousers, suede tassled bag and print headband contributed to today's 70's inspired outfit.  A purchase from Corsica, the printed wide-legged trousers felt like I had my PJ's on!!  Super comfy, soft silk, flowy ... these are packed for my next Holly Day ...

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).
