Home for me feels like Portugal...... I love the weather, culture, people, and especially the shopping!
An 8 day trip with my sister was all about relaxing, catching up with my friends and just enjoying the sunshine. I couldn't resist taking some photo's though.....
A combined culotte jumpsuit with super fine strap detail, a simple pair of black sandals and added accessories ... ready for dinner! Accessories included the fresh white Parfois clutch, black leather Massimo Dutti watch and a beautiful feather hair wrap! I have been hunting for a hair wrap for ages, and I found this beauty on a braid stall in the old town in Albufeira!
Photography taken overlooking one of my favourite beaches ... São Rafael beach, Portugal.
Sail away with nautical inspired pieces......
One of my favourite colours has to be navy. A classic, sophisticated and smart shade that is more forgiving than black and I think suits pretty much everyone. A key colour for a nautical vibe and a trend that never goes out of season, here are some of my nautical ideas for whatever the weather:
- Stripe sundress
- Navy/white shorts & stripe tee
- Stripe skirt & plain tee
- Stripe espadrilles/white pumps
- Navy blazer, stripe tee and chino's
- Tailored navy trousers, stripe blouse and pumps
- Stripe scarf or bag
As day two's adventures included the old town and Barcelona's marina (Port Vell) a soft, thin stripe tee, navy high waisted shorts and flats seemed appropriate! Plus the weather was amazing and I wanted to make the most of being able to wear shorts!
Hate packing?! I love it because it usually means holiday!
There are those staple/must-have pieces that always get packed or taken when travelling.......
Travel in style.....my first "must-have" item is my Parfois crocodile skin travel holdall which I love!! Ideal as hand luggage, complete with wheels and in gorgeous crocodile skin, this is my saviour!
Inside my holdall.....the most important pieces; my passport, sunglasses, travel wallet, Nook ereader and ipod.
On the beach......my trusty black Brazil Havaianas, Hawaiian Tropic suncream and Mark Hill sea salt hair spray!
Look the part at the beach/pool......my favourite bikini's from Oysho, Calzedonia and Victoria Secrets! Add a floral headband or fedora to complete the beach babe look.

Arrivé à Paris! After 2 years of talking about visiting Paris and the French Open we finally got round to organising a trip.
My treasured item I always have packed or ready, (especially living in England) is my mac! A loose, lightweight but fitted mac with large buttons can pretty much go with everything and can be a life saver if you ever get caught in a shower!
I have a black and cream mac both from Zara which I mix and match depending on the weather and my outfit for the day. This trip I decided on the cream, and my basic, comfy classics; light, soft denim jeans, preppy navy polo shirt and pumps.
To keep the rain away for the weekend I wore my We Positive leather bracelet for good luck!!
