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,Β  I have some fab new spring pieces to share with you.

Happy Australia Day!! What better day to write this post about these amazing new boots. Hands up who else is majorly fed up of this freezing cold weather we are having of late? I am thinking of nothing but summer and planning my getaways to my little Greek island over the next few months. Anyway back to the post…these are absolute lifesavers and I am incredibly happy that Ozalia got in touch with me and let me give their cozy boots a spin. These aren’t your standard winter boots either, read on to find out why.

I recently had a browse of all the new in gems at Garment Quarter and I had soon totted up a wishlist as long as my arm (easily done right?). Since there was so many items I was lusting after I decided to put together a wishlist of all the gorgeous SS16 pieces that I want for my summer get aways. I could have spent an absolute fortune so my days will now be spent narrowing it down on what to go for because unfortunately I don’t have a bank balance to rival the Kardashians…….*sob*Read More »

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.

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.
