Sun Kissed
Life should be one big Holly Day!

My treats in life are my holidays and shopping.  So strolling around the cobbled streets of Albufeira shopping is the perfect combination!

In 30'c +, today's look was all about being fresh, sunkissed and daytime cool!  With my Calzedonia bikini underneath, I absolutely love a baggy, open vest, basic shorts and my new sunnies.  Loose, cool and soft materials for comfort and a relaxed style on holiday......love it!

After purchasing a new Artelusa cork bracelet in teal (to match my outfit!) my sister and I found the most beautiful, picturesque street.  Huge bright orange and pink flowers and an old church building decorated in shells!  This for me is why I love the old town Albufeira; hidden streets filled with character, delicious cuisine and amazing boutiques.

Today I returned to Bonifacio in Corsica, 4 years since I worked a summer season on the island!!  A beautiful, medieval fortress town which once housed Napoleon in 1793 which is brilliant for strolling around the alleys, boutique shopping and French cuisine.
My jumpsuit....definitely one of my best buys!  I absolutely love this from O'Neill and when going on holiday this is always packed in my suitcase.....1 outfit complete!  

This all-in-one is easy, effortless and ideal for a day or an evening out.  Soft, loose cotton material; it is not too tight or baggy, yet comfortable to move around and sit down in.

My top tips:

* Right Fit -   Not too tight so you cannot move around and sit down.  But not too baggy....this should look feminine.
* Day/Night - Roll-up the hem lines and whip out the flats/flip flops for the day.  Maximise your height with some pointy heels, you cannot distinguish your upper half to the lower half (if you are petite!)
* Minimal Accessories -  Less is more, a jumpsuit speaks for itself so keep the accessories to a minimum. One chunky necklace, or a pair of long earrings will usually suffice.
* Colours/Prints - Plain black is a safe but classy/flattering colour for all body shapes, perfect for dinner or drinks.  For those of you feeling more adventurous, a floral or bright bold jumpsuit can make you stand out in the crowd.
Add a layer if the weather changes; a crochet tassled black jumper was handy on this occasion........
