Travel diaries -Side split Maxi dress

Summer is not over until we feature a maxi dress. I was in two minds about this dress because it’s much shorter than I would have preferred; but I couldn’t resist the colour. 

I think I was saved my side split. A little sexiness and some movement ….I love. 

My top tip for wearing ankle swinging maxi dresses is to make sure your shoe / sandal game is on fire.   Your feet are going to be showcased. Make sure they do not disappoint.

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 šŸ‘‰

Summer shorts

Y’all know that I am not a huge fan of showing off my legs.  That said,we make exceptions while catching rays in sunny locations. I bought these denim shorts and they made me fall in love my legs all over again. 

I am now of the veiw that every girl should own at least one pair of Denim shorts. They are great for the beach, to parties and Not to mention totally wearable on those hot summer days.

They are the perfect stretch, high waisted and a cool shade of blue.

I added a longline kimono to this outfit for that swirly carefree blowing in the wind look. I just love it.

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 – 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!”

Before I share my outfit, I just wanted to show off my makeup skills.šŸ˜œ.
I have literally just touched down and everything is already glowing.Ā  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, IĀ  go for it and just make it work.
I believe am working it! Hopefully it’s not too obvious either šŸ˜†.

Travel Diaries – Boxy Tops

Hey guys…
I had a great achievement today.Ā Ā  I have owned this particular boxy top for the longest while. I just couldn’t style it right and I didn’t think it fitted my shape.
Today I just wore it regardless of all.
I don’t think it looks too bad … right ?

Unfortunately, I forgot to capture the back but it’s pretty sheer and unlined.
