35'c + ... it has been a scorcher here the last few weeks! Classic topknot, glowing skin, and blondie hair... I have now been living here for 5 months can you believe?!
Feeling like a true Portuguese, I purchased this beautiful boutique beach cover-up. Tassels, colourful pom poms and frilly details....easy peasy to throw on for the beach. With so many boutiques around the Algarve I love to venture out of normal buying trends. As much as I love my brands I always like to be different and support smaller shops and cultures.
More of the Portuguese trends coming soon with a swimwear blog upcoming... x
It's been a busy few months since I moved to paradise.... but back to the blog!
Time to style out the heat... with the arrival of summer and 39'c! Sometimes I just want to live in my swimwear! Otherwise for me it's simple one-item outfits most of the time. Minimalistic, simple shapes, "throw-on" pieces that I do not even need to think about putting on. This dress was one of those purchases!
Drinks and walks along the beach are my favourite after work. Which made for the perfect time to take these shots.....
My first blog post from my new home. Yes!
My sister and I moved to Portugal last month. A decision that was a long time coming…
Beautiful sunshine, delicious food and my favourite beaches…
I cannot wait to share with you my idea’s this year. A new home, a new venture……surely a new
Time to step into Spring with the ultimate effortless but
high impact shoe…the backless loafer.
Great to start airing those feet and welcoming some warmth. I fell in love with these black leather bee
detail loafer’s whilst shopping in Dubai last November…and have been dying to
Top-up the look with another season favourite… power frills,
embroidery, ripped jeans and florals. Kinda
girly but not too much!
After a 'Jolly Holly' Christmas there is nothing quite like the fresh outdoors!
A crisp walk around Leeds Castle, pub lunch and a chance to get lost in the maze....
Still not that cold in the UK for December, it was amazing to see daffodils in full bloom! Definitely a chance to layer-up but not too much.
Feeling like Pocahontas in my new suede tassel boots, today's look was all about contrast. Simple, fitted clothing pieces accompanied with loose, layered accessories. Be careful not to overdo the fringing/tassels! The classic shape, knee-high suede riding boots really were a great investment which will never date.
Leaves falling, temperatures cooling... it's time for Autumn layers!
One of my favourite warm pieces... the roll-neck under a pinafore dress and knee-high leather boots make Autumn season "easy-dressing".
Another layer? Check out the Peacoat range on offer at Jack Wills. I absolutely love the traditional, preppy British styles and patterns. Keeping with the "school-girl" chic look, I wore my Warmwell Peacoat in houndstooth. Classically tailored with a traditional statement lapel, double breast and fur collar.
Making the most of a sunny Sunday morning I was lucky enough to have these photo's taken whilst enjoying a country walk around Knole Park. Home to over 350 wild deer and with over 1000 acres to roam, it reminded me how beautiful the Kent countryside really is!
