STYLING CULOTTES

17 August 2016



“The more you leave out, the more you highlight what you leave in.”
― Henry Green

Happy Wednesday lovers! I have a new found love for culottes, they are seriously so comfortable. These are from Monki and are my favourite pair for work. Also obsessed with these shoes but they are actually really hard to walk in. Hoping they just need to be worn in a little more!






I am wearing H&M crop and shoes, & other stories hat and Liberty London purse. Thanks so much for reading lovelies and have a fabulous week!


          

POSTCARDS FROM AMALFI

4 July 2016



"Dopo il cattivo, viene il bel tempo"
Italian Proverb

Happy Monday my loves, and happy Independence day to my American readers! Today's outfit comes all the way from Positano, Italy. Michael and I spent a weekend on the Amalfi coast and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful places we've visited so far. We shot this post around our hotel, which happened to be a former 13th-century monastery.








The beauty of this location was mind-blowing, but it was nothing compared to the coast itself. Pop over to my instagram for more pictures. My outfit is from Monki, which is actually my favourite store at the moment! Shoes are from Siren and bag is Gucci, very appropriate for a visit to Italy.


Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week darlings,

          

TWO DAYS IN BARCELONA

24 June 2016


“...and the world smelled of roses. 
The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”
  Maud Hart Lovelace



Hey lovelies! I was lucky enough to spend some time in Barcelona a few weeks ago and I thought I’d share some highlights from the trip. Barcelona is a large city and there is so much to see and do, I must admit a weekend was not nearly enough time to see it all! I found Barcelona to be a city of contrasts; modern and innovative yet full of history and culture.



On Saturday we decided on a day of sightseeing. As I said, Barcelona is a huge city, far too large to explore on foot. We weren't planning on hiring a car so we decided to purchase tickets for a tour bus, Barcelons CityTour. This service has two main routes through the city that stop at historical landmarks and noteworthy locations. You’re free to get out and explore, knowing that the next bus is only a few minutes away.



Some places worth visiting in Barcelona are the Gothic Quarter, Sagrada Familia and Gaudi Park. The Gothic Quarter has a cool atmosphere; full of narrow lanes and little shops and restaurants, definitely a good option for lunch or dinner. Sagrada Família, is a cathedral designed by famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. This cathedral has been under construction for over 100 years! Finally, we visited Gaudi park which features more of Gaudi’s designs and some nice views of the city. 


I decided to keep my outfit quite relaxed for Saturdays sightseeing, my dress, jacket and bag are from H&M and shoes are from Monki.




We decided to take it easy on Sunday and the best way to do this would be to head to the beach! Mar - Bella beach is one of the many lovely beaches in Barcelona. We enjoyed a tasty lunch and cocktails at a beachside cafe before spending the afternoon relaxing in the sun by the sea.
  




If you're planning a trip to Barcelona I recommend spending at least a week here. Also, consider hiring a car, it will be much easier to get around! 


Thanks so much for reading and have a lovely day,
