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.
You will have seen a few times in the last few months that I haven’t been blogging as full time as I usually have done so in the past. A variety of reasons account for this. It isn’t my full time job as much as I would adore it to be and therefore takes a lot of time and more importantly money to keep up.
Having recently changed jobs and house I have had to sacrifice a lot of things and new clothes was the first to stop. For obvious reasons no one wants to see old content and therefore fashion wise I haven’t had anything to blog.
I miss blogging immensely and the second my finances are in order I can’t wait to get back to weekly posts. I try to keep up to date on Instagram with what I’m up to and post the occasional outfit pic on there. For now this is the best I can do.
I popped out with all the girls on Friday night for a very overdue catch up and it was so great to see everyone. I went for a rocky kind of look. You can’t see much lower detail in the pics but I had studded pointed boots on, fishnests under my ripped knee jeans, a Metallica ripped tee, denim shirt, shaggy cardi and choked. All finished off with my beloved lily bag. You can shop the look by clicking the link under the photo above (or the photo itself).
Miss you all and can’t wait to get back at it as soon as possible.

Every girl needs a boyfriend shirt in their catalogue of clothes. It is an essential staple item and something you can throw on and really never go wrong with. They are comfortable and stylish which makes for a winning combo in my books. This shirt is from the new Gant Rugged collection and it’s gone straight to the top of my favourites out of the many many striped shirts I own. It’s a really breathable material and the oversized fit gives you a cool boyish edge which I have given a girly twist here by wearing a lacey peach harness bra underneath.

Here’s a quick little run down of my latest Instagram outfit posts. As you know not all my looks make it to the blog due to only being able to shoot pics at weekends so I try to do a little round up of my latest outfits so if you don’t follow me on Instagram you can still see the looks but also shop the links here which Instagram doesn’t allow.

Not to be totally British or anything but what is with this weather at the moment?! It’s so erratic which makes dressing to leave the house a bit of a guessing game. We have had a few pleasant days and digging out the sunnies has made me extremely happy and oh so ready for summer to get it’s butt here pronto. From someone that lived in Greece for 6 years and wearing them every day without fail I sure have missed them. I treated myself recently to this rose tinted pair of beauties from Ray Ban (via ASOS).

You will have probably seen harness bralets all over the high street lately. I have been looking for some cute ones but they seem to be constantly sold out! I did manage to nab this one though and it’s a winner. It’s a bit more 50 shades than most of the more simple versions I’ve seen around but sometimes you’ve just got to bring your inner prowess out. It is actually shown online as more of a top to wear with skirts, high waist jeans etc but unless I have abs like Jenna Dewan-Tatum in the next two months then that won’t be happening!

Sorry for being AWOL on my blog for the last week and also my social channels too. I had a trip away with the girls and literally had not a spare minute to upload a single thing let alone get blog photos done and write one up. Back to usual service now though! Sometimes such simple pieces work so well together! I got this cute as a button super soft jumper (with hidden little side pockets) recently from River Island. It’s now in the sale FYI so get clicking! I also snapped up the deep maroon version too and they are just too snuggly. I paired the cosy knit up with a pair of sassy faux leather trousers for a tough rock edge to the look.
Lace ups are everywhere right now and I have the standard bodysuits with long and short sleeves but then I spotted this cute lace up sweater and loved how the trend had gone into winter territory. I initially wanted the rust version but it sold out and much to my disappointment never got restocked *sob*. I did manage to get my hands on this gorgeous go-with-everything cream version though so all was not lost.
