No place like home...
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.

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).

INTO the BLUE
Going away on a city break?  Essential to pack lightly and be organised with your outfits. Matching together or worn as seperates this twin chic set was first on my list.  Soft, tailored, textured linen material, the top and shorts nailed this summer seasons bloom prints trend.

Like any vibrant pattern, the bright blue floral against the crisp white needs no explanation.  Keeping it simple, I paired a delicate, layered necklace and other plain gold jewellery.  

Fresh, cool, tailored and bold; enjoy my co-ordinates of the day......

Don't be afraid to match a whole outfit... even if it is print overload!
