Spring Days Are Here

I just got back from a flying visit to my other home, Corfu – Greece. I was there for Orthodox Easter and if you have never visited Greece before then Easter is definitely one of the best times to go. Namely Corfu, as they have their own traditions that really set them apart from the other islands. I will go into more detail about that separately because it deserves a dedicated post, it’s THAT GOOD! I also warn you that this post is fairly photo heavy,  I have some fab new spring pieces to share with you.

Anyway back to my trip, I was very lucky in terms of weather Corfu can be such a hit and miss island at this time of the year. It’s so small and even the weather channel there regularly gets it wrong as it can change so fast. Thankfully we were blessed with glorious sunshine and wonderful temperatures most days which meant I could also wear some real summery pieces from my new found favourite online go-to Tobi.com

I got 3 new pieces from Tobi which went straight into my suitcase in the hope that I would be able to get some wear out of them, this British weather can get a little frustrating to say the least. First to share with you is the cutest dusky pink off the shoulder day dress. I adore off the shoulder pieces and have done for a while now but to be honest I had a bit of a complex that I resembled a male Olympic swimmer with shoulders that could break down doors. Turns out I am not the Incredible Hulk in the shoulder department and I actually really love the look! Totally converted just in time for Spring. This little cutie also comes in white and I am seriously considering purchasing it because it’s just too damn adorable.

The second dress is Spring personified. It is a dreamy shade of baby blue, cami style dress with a low v-front filled in with lace detail and finished off with a deep set back. This would be beyond ideal for a Spring/Summer wedding if you have one impending or just a night out with the girls on a warm evening with a cute pair of heeled sandals. I often quite like to take a super girly piece and give it a tough edge so I usually add my trustee biker jacket majority of the time for a more urban twist on a look. I think mixing soft and hard pieces gives a really great contrast and takes the look to a whole new level.

Last up to share with you, my lovely readers, and most probably my favorite piece is this unreal snake print beauty of a dress. This is a perfect Saturday night out dress. It has everything you need to make it a show-stopper; wrap style front, thigh split and low back. Winning all round! I again added my biker jacket to toughen the look and take it in the direction that is more my style. I kept with the black theme when it came to my accessories and my jewellery is always fairly simple. Less is more when the dress has a lot of detail and does all the talking. Scroll down for the rest of the photos and how it looked once I added the jacket.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and enjoyed the festivities. Keep an eye out for my post all about Corfiot Easter and their wonderfully crazy and not to say dangerous traditions.
