Sunshine all year round, delicious food, the friendliest people and still some of the best hidden beaches I have ever relaxed on. Having spent the last 15 years exploring Portugal it feels like home to me, and there are always new hidden gems to visit.
One of my favourite beaches and one of 69 with blue flag status…Praia dos Arrifes. Just west of Albufeira old town, this small beach has some amazing rock formations.
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!
One of my new years resolutions ......to continue to visit new places!
With some time off over the festive period (and having eaten a little too much!)...... I visited The Friars in Aylesford. A frosty morning, bluebird sky, I took in the fresh air and the beautiful grounds. An ancient religious house of the Order of the Carmelites dating back to the 13th century, it was peaceful, relaxing and tranquil.
As the frost lay over the grounds, I was sure to wrap up warm! Nothing better than a roll neck jumper (to keep your neck warm) and some simply skinny jeans. Plus my new navy knit cape which was a present for Christmas. Double knitwear!!
After the frost....hopefully comes the snow?!! I hope! Stay warm everyone!
With sales doubling since last year, the jumpsuit should have been top of your wish list!
This casual, comfortable and chic jumpsuit complete with fitted waistline and belt was perfect for a laid-back vibe for dinner. In contrast to the bright, vibrant tropical print I picked my simple, white Next flats. Love them or hate them.....the flat sliders or Birkenstocks were key this season!
QED London offer some great vivid and loud colours and prints.....something I usually keep for holidays. But with Autumn and Winter looming, check out the tailored, smart, silk, glam jumpsuits on offer. Navy, black, red or metallics are right on trend...... Lavish Alice, Ted Baker, Little Mistress and Topshop have already caught my eye!!
