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.

The Boyfriend Shirt

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.

Keep It Monochrome

Monochrome never fails to date. It always looks simple but chic and you can rely on monochrome when you’re having one of those days, we’ve all had time and time again, when absolutely everything you try on looks hideous. Monochrome comes and goes in the fashion world and as a trend will continue to do so for the long foreseeable future. Items like black boots and fedoras just finish off a look so well in the winter. Boots mean that you can brave it and bare your legs but still keep toasty with warm socks and a pair of go-with-everything ankle boots. This cosy teddy coat is one of the warmest coats I’ve bought in a while. Missguided have really stepped up their coat game this year and that is where I have bought the majority of mine so far. It really does keep you super toasty and the colour goes with so much too.

Little White Dress

UK_fashion_blog_ASOS_missguidedDress: Missguided (also in tall & petite) // Shoes: ASOS

Forget the LBD, a fresh summer twist on the classic wardrobe staple is the LWD….little white dress! I got this very last minute (much like my last few blog posts, I had an unplanned late online spree) before I flew off to Italy and as I mentioned in my previous posts I didn’t have many fitted/bodycon pieces so when this little gem appeared on the Missguided new in section I didn’t hesitate to rehome it lovingly in my wardrobe. It is a nice lightweight crepe material, not too tight and not too hot in the Greek heatwave that was occuring. The criss cross strap and low v neck detail makes it a little more interesting than regular straight over cami straps.

Holiday Style Diary: #2

UK_fashion_blog_Missguided_River Island_ASOSPlaysuit: Missguided // Shoes: River Island // Bag: ASOS

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.

Jacket // Top // jeans // Heels // Bag // Bodychain // Arm Bangle

I recently teamed up with Boohoo on a really fun collaboration along with some amazing bloggers from Paris. We were each paired up with a Parisian blogger and we had to pick an outfit from Boohoo for each other to style up and showcase on our blogs. I was paired with Melody from La Minute Fashion (she is awesome). She picked out some really cute pieces for me and I loved every single piece. This suedette jacket is to die for and I know that I will be living in it from now on. Tan suede is all over the place at the moment whether it’s a jacket, a-line skirt or lace up gladiator sandals.
