 I was asked by Boohoo to pick a style icon and try to recreate their look using a little something from their site. I have a  ton of style icons so I knew this wouldn’t be easy. After having a think and scrolling through pictures I spotted Jessica Alba and Sienna Miller in this beautiful Isabel Marant embroidered denim dress. I fell in love with it and so I set about finding something similar to this little number.

Having A Break

Hello lovely followers!

As you know I went away in July for 10 days and whilst away I didn’t do any blog posts in this time, I did however take outfit pics to share with you all on my return which you can see in my last few posts.

I have just had the best time ever in Italy with a friend of mine. We went for a wedding of a friend from school and it was one of the nicest places I have ever been to! We stayed in Sorrento, a pretty bustling city with the most wonderful people. I am going to do a blog post about it because there is too much to say about the lovely place. 

I am now in Corfu and after thinking about it a lot I still really need to take some more time for myself right now. There’s a lot going on at the moment and I can’t put my full energy into doing posts and I certainly don’t want my standard of posts to slip because of this. It is better for me to have a complete break and as before I will still be taking pictures while I am out and about. As soon as I am good and ready I will share all my outfits with you lovely people.

Thank you so much for being so patient and in the meantime I will still 100% be Instagramming everything so if you want to keep up to date then that’s where to head to.

Hope you are all fabulous as always and again thank you for your understanding and patience.

Gillian

Khaki and a tan goes hand in hand for summer dressing. The dark green shade really shows off even the slightest hint of colour and I think it looks good with blonde hair too. This lovely dress was wait for it…..another Missguided steal. I promise my holiday wasn’t sponsored by them but they have just been killing it lately. I don’t even want to think about how much I have spent over the last few weeks. What I love about this dress is the zips up either side, it makes it a little bit different and yes they really do unzip all the way up to the armpits. Thankfully no one was tempted to quickly whip them up and run away…phew!

This dress is just beyond amazing. I spotted it on Instagram a while back and had to have it straight away. It is part of the Lucy Mecklenburgh for PLT range and has been very popular. It got restocked and sold out so fast but I managed to get my hands on one. It’s back in stock again now but if you buy this then I would strongly suggest sizing down, I went for a 6 and even that is fairly roomy. It has a beautiful floral lilac and pink print and a low plunge neckline which makes it really stand out.

Without realising I have bought a lot of white clothing recently. This little number is one I really like and I got a good promo deal on it so it only cost me £17 which is amazing. They sold out in my size so I did size up which means it’s a little more roomy than I would have liked but I think it still looks nice. I seem to wear not so many fitted dresses these days and more a line shift shape. I may get this taken in at some point though for next summer but I left it in Greece for my imminent return so will wear it again slightly baggier. To be honest though, when the weather is so hot and muggy a nice loose dress is quite a good thing to opt for. I love the low plunge front and back, again this is a running theme at the moment for me. Once I like a style I tend to go a little cray when shopping apparently and stock up on said style.

Bodychain: Boohoo (similar here) // Bag: Yes Style

This is THE most comfortable playsuit I have ever had the pleasure of wearing. It’s loose so it is great for hot weather too. The low front meant I could add a bodychain instead of a standard necklace for a change. It’s nice a slouchy but the style means it’s not just a casual black playsuit, the plunge front makes it more dressy and more of a night time piece. I even had a local Greek man tell me ‘out of all the English girls who ever come here, you are always dressed the best’ which I thought was very sweet. Who doesn’t love a compliment?!

I absolutely adore this beautiful skirt, I got it ages ago pre summer when I was exercising like a mad woman to get into shape. Finally I was able to wear it and it was definitely worth the sweat. The flower overlay is so pretty and delicate, I will be wearing this again on my next holiday for sure. I love the slightly longer overlay so you can really see how pretty the detail is and it’s something different to a regular skirt. I love white and grey together, especially in the summer so you will probably always see me in a grey top when I wear a white skirt. I just think the light colour pallete looks really good in the summer months especially if you have the added bonus of a tan.

Carrying on my low plunge front theme I mentioned in an earlier post I give you this striped shift dress. I have bought so much from Missguided lately, all their summer stuff has been to die for and I had one last big splurge right before my holiday. This dress was part of that spree and I am really glad I snapped it up. It is a lovely lightweight fabric which was great and it was incredibly hot well into the evenings. Its a great price and something I will wear again and again. I have bought quite a lot of shift dresses lately as they are really comfortable and so easy to wear.

I had to get ready earlier on this evening as we were going to a cliff top bar that over looks the beach and is probably one of the best sunset spots on the island. It gets pretty busy and since it was Sunday too there would be a lot of the locals there for drinks. This is the reason for my poofy hair which I had no time to style at all, it had been up until right before I took these pics which meant I had to just grin and bear it that it looked a mess here…apologies! This skirt has been on the blog before when I wore it for LFW, in a much colder climate may I also add. I love leopard print in all forms whether its a skirt, top, shoes or phone case.

Saturday night was my girl Lauren’s birthday which called for a fab outfit. I managed to bag this unreal playsuit just before my holiday before it sold out. You will notice as my posts go on that I had a bit of a running theme with my outfits. Without realising, pretty much my whole suitcase consisted of low plunge front dresses and playsuits. This created a slight dilemma in that most of my bikinis were bandeau style, oops. Not wanting to get a big white strip tan line I had to wear only the few triangle style bikinis I packed. Sometimes being a girl is far too difficult! In August I am there for longer so I can alternate between the different styles. I’ve never worn such low front pieces before but I actually really like the style and have plenty more to wear on my next trip in 3 weeks.
