Travel diaries- Destination Birthday

My love for traveling has multipled over the years. I love getting to see different parts of the world;the foods, the people, art and culture. 

I have been privilaged to spend another birthday in a different country. In all honesty… this is by far the longest birthday celebrations. It seems as though I have been celebrating since I got here on Monday 19th of September  and I am sure the celebrations will continue long after the 23rd. 

Birthdays are not quite right without cake. I went back to the Fontanella tea garden for some delicious cake and breathtaking views.

I ended the day with dinner by the yacht marines. Had the most delicious salad. I did not know that salads could be so tasty. 

See you soon.  X

Summer 2016 must haves -Denim dresses

We are well into the summer but it’s not too late to whip out the Denim dress … if you have not done so already. 

Denim is so versatile and not to mention it goes with practically everything. 

This summer I am totally loving the romantically feminine pinafore denim dress. It compiments the t-shirt under a dress look and gracefully takes me back to my youth.

I am wearing a midi denim dress from Asos. This belted dress nips me in at the waist for the feminine look. Shop this dress here πŸ‘‰

5 ways to wear stripes

Everyone has their own rule on whether to wear vertical or horizontal strips. My view is that the only correct rule is the one that you feel comfortable in.

Here are 5 ways I rocked my stripes. 

1. Boohoo maxi dress. 

I really love the varied thickness in the stripes. It adds so depth to this pattern. This is a piece that can eask be dressed up or down and it cut in a very flattering wrap front style πŸ‘.

2) Marks and Spencer striped body con dress. 

This dress was literally a steal from M&S.  Believe me they do the best sales. This dress has the most flattering deep back neck scoop.

3) Asos Strappy vest dress.

This easy peasy vest dress is great for all occasions this summer. 

4) Newlook Culotte jumpsuit 

Fed up wearing Jean, skirts and dresses. This jumpsunit culotte can and will add variety to your summer wardrobe.

Wearing Skirts with trainersΒ 

I bet you never thought these two world would every collide. Practical meets feminine, it was bound to happen.  

This look is perfect for all my city crawlers. The UK weather is just so unpredictable. Too many times have I been caught in the rain in sandals. I know may of you can relate to being fooled by the foreast.

White trainers add a chic finish to this look. With tennis and Wimbledon still in the air they are perfect for all my centre court gamer.

Airport outfit return home – Holiday blues

All good things have to come to an end. Fashion is very much a way of expressing ones self.What do I wear home? Something that caputures my mode well.Β  I love wearing the classic denim on denim trend.Β  It’s a trend that never dies or gets old.

I find that the Topshop Joni jeans are great to travel in because they have lots of stretch. The high waisted cut means that I do not have to worry about my jeans riding down.

Travel Diaries – Striped Culotte jumpsuit

image

Culottes are here to stay. I am absolutely loving this jumpsuit piece. I was always worried about what to wear my culottes with. We all know that Culottes are an awkward breed of skirt /long shirts. Do I team it with a blouse or t-shirt πŸ˜’?. As a jumpsuit it’s super easy to wear.

Dress it up for a day to night look. πŸ˜™

image

I have consumed wayyy to much food on this holiday (pls don’t judge me ). Luckily these straight line straighten out all my lumps and bumps while the waist band gives the illusion of a nipped in waist.

                   Fashion magic !

How do you wear your Culottes? Is’nt this jumpsuit form a great idea?.

Travel diaries -Cold shoulders meets Wide leg trousers

This is probably summer 2016’s hottest trend . I could not get enough of it this holiday.

I pair my cold shoulder top with my printed palazzo wide leg trousers.
I was absolutely over dressed for the trek today but I sure looked good while doing it.

It was a victorious moment when I made it to the top of the acropolis.
The views made it all worth while.

I swept my hair to the side to show off my statement earrings. I hope to write a blog post statement earring so keep an eye out for it.

Travel diaries – Pink Skater dress

I figured that I should share what I wore to the beach since I did not leave the hotel in my swimsuit.

I find that skater dresses make pretty good cover ups.
They are great as add ons to beach wear yet very wearable when not at the beach too.

I am always pleasantly suprised at how flattering and cute this dress is.
This time I teamed it with pink flatforms and my flower headband.
Apparently I looked like a real Greek Goddess.
If your thinking Athena the goddess of wisdom then I will take it as a compliment.

Travel diaries- Bardot with jeans

As blazing hot as it is in the day times, the evenings are very chilled and breezy.
Unfortunately I didn’t pack much cover ups.
However, I think that Bardot tops are a good way of serving some shoulder sexynessssss.Β 
I wore my Bardot bodies with skinny jeans.Β  Simple and yet stylish.

Sadly my feet have been swollen from the heat and the flight… flats sandals and sliders are the only things that fit.

Travel diaries – Lady in Red

The colour red is such a bold and statement colour. I think it requires lots of confidence to wear because you will most definitely get lots of stares.

I normally have my unbothered hat on while on holiday. My motto is that I will be gone in a few weeks or days so “what the heck!”

image

Before I share my outfit, I just wanted to show off my makeup skills.😜.
I have literally just touched down and everything is already glowing.Β  This natural sun light is great for selfies but also used the Live Love make up bronze palette.

This gorgeous off the shoulder maxi dress was take from my mother’s closet. I loved it at first sight and just had to have it. The colour is very eye catching. It’s totally on tend and the thin straps mean you don’t have to worry about the dress rolling off your shoulders.

The frills on this dress is very flattering and great for hiding my problem areas

image

I decided to tie a knot on the hem of this dress because it’s not quiet the right length for my tall frame. But when I like am item, IΒ  go for it and just make it work.
I believe am working it! Hopefully it’s not too obvious either πŸ˜†.
