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!

Dubai

Winter sun.......... yes please!

What better way to spend my last holiday of the year......a girly weekend in Dubai with our friend Tracy, my mum and my sister!

An action-packed few days... a trip up the Burj Khalifa, shopping in the Dubai Mall, an abra boat ride around Souk Madinat Jumeirah and much, much more!

Conscious of the warm temperatures and respecting the Islamic dress code I packed loose, cool clothing and comfy flats.  Sunnies, messenger bag, my hair tied up and of course....my camera!

Nautical
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:

Spring/Summer:
  • Stripe sundress
  • Navy/white shorts & stripe tee
  • Stripe skirt & plain tee
  • Stripe espadrilles/white pumps
Autumn/Winter:
  • 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!
