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.
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.
Another little outfit update from all my latest snaps and Insta pics. Follow me on there so you don’t miss out on any #ootd shots!

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.

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.

The rain held up for all of 5 minutes on Saturday so I took full advantage and ran out to snap some pics while I had the (rare) chance. Being able to only take blog pictures on weekends means it can be so difficult when the weather isn’t up to scratch, if I miss one weekend of shooting outfits then I have no content for the week that follows which drives me utterly insane. I wish I could blog full time as I would love nothing more than to find amazing locations and hire a photographer for the day and get so many outfits shot. However, having a full time job as well as a busy lifestyle means that fitting the blog (which is as much of a full time job on its own) in with everything is sometimes very hard to do. I try my best to not let it go too long inbetween posts but the reality is it’s hard. Taking photos yourself on your driveway with a tripod, timer and remote is not the easiest especially when it’s rains non stop all day and the wind doesn’t let up (it does provide many pics of ‘blog fails’ though). Trying to get good pictures is beyond difficult so I do very much appareciate all of you that read the blog despite all this.

The bomber loving goes on and on, this time in a go-with-everything faux suede tan. This is a little different to my previously featured bomber jackets, it is a lot thinner and more lightweight than the others and is more of a cover up and part of the outfit than outerwear as such. I probably wouldn’t take this one off as it’s no different to wearing a cardigan or a shirt over a top. I quite like that this is more lightweight and less ‘coat like’, it makes a nice change to a big padded bomber and keeps an otherwise plain outfit on trend.

This bomber though guys!! I have a bit of a bomber love-in going on so been wearing them constantly at the moment, meaning they are showing up in every post. This beautiful floral embroidered one is what dreams are made of. It’s a nice thick material and something a little different to the usual satin style you see everywhere and what I usually wear. It jazzes up a plain-ish outfit and injects a little colour and fun into the mix.

I am a big big fan of the plunge neck, whether it be bodysuits, dresses or playsuits I think they look amazing. This was a quick look put together to show that for a big night out you don’t always need to get completely galmmed up to the max by going all out in a dress but you can still looks just as dressy in a plunge bodysuit, jeans and heels. Especially whent he weather is as icy cold as it is now, putting on a dress and facing the elements isn’t the most appealing idea in the world Bodysuits always look good and there are so many different styles on the market at the moment, you are sure to find one you like. It doesn’t have to be a plunge style either, this is just something I like at the moment.
