So a couple of weeks ago I was on holiday in Gran Canaria! It's such a beautiful place that's so easy to get around so you can see so much of the island. I hotel we stayed in was the Maspalomas Princess and I was absolutely huge and so beautiful! We also went on a boat ride from Puerto Rico to Mogan and its such a picturesque town, ande we sat drinking ice tea looking over the harbour.
Every night we saw an amazing sunset while sipping cocktails, it was such a great holiday!

Thanks for reading!

How To Style The Cap

Saturday, 20 June 2015

Dresses- Topshop
Shoes - Public Desire
Bag - Mulberry
Sporty Chic. It's a trend that never goes away. Every year a celebrity or street style blogger creates a sports luxe look that everyone wants to replicate, whether its with the must have trainers or the fashion-meets-comfort jogging bottoms. However there is always an item that can go with any take on a sporty outfit, and that's the hat.
 Check out for every sports hat you can imagine, like this San Francisco giants one I used, and my tip would be to choose one with neutral colours so they'll go with everything (you never know when a bad hair day will strike).
For the one I choose, I decided to go with a sleek, dressed up look mainly inspired by the Jenner sisters. The sporty hat combined with a feminine dress will always look fashion forward, especially with these gorgeous lace up or caged heels from Public desire. Now the bag isn't exactly 'affordable' but its just SO PRETTY. I want it so much. The colour is co-ordinated with the hat, and the accessories will always pull an outfit together.

I hope you enjoyed this post, please let me know if you would wear this outfit!


Why take a gap year?

Saturday, 23 May 2015

So pretty much exactly this time last year, I was panicking. In the midst of my final exams I was still debating whether deciding to take a gap year was the right decision. I knew that the thought of going to university at that time was a scary one, as I really wasn't ready to go into something that requires so much commitment, but at the same time, a gap year was just as intimidating. What was I going to do? Will I still want to go uni after? So many questions were floating round my head, and when you're meant to be revising, its not great to have these questions playing on your mind.
But I had already made my decision, and my last exam was approaching, and I still had no plan for my year off from education. However I knew there was one thing I wanted - experience. In every sense of the word.

So the first thing I did was start this blog. I came up with a name, a design and a concept. I also bought a camera and prepared to have a really good summer to just have some time off from everything.
By the time September came around I had got a job, which meant I had money, which also meant I could start planning a couple of trips! I knew I probably wouldn't be able to go travelling, but several week long trips would do me good! I went to Amsterdam in February which was just amazing and exactly what I needed as it was so different to anywhere I had been before. I've also managed to save up enough for a trip to the canary islands with my boyfriend, Spain with the girls and Italy with my family. I really can't wait!
So several months, jobs and blog posts later I think I can finally say that taking a gap year was the best choice I could've made. I've experienced so much in different aspects of life and am beginning to figure out what I actually want to do in the future.

Next stop Uni!


Style inspiration for summer 2015

As you can probably tell from my last couple of posts, I'm really looking forward to summer. In the UK it can take a while for the weather to get to the point where we can go outside without a jacket, but its getting there.
Around this time I can do nothing but think of the beach, a holiday and a new summer wardrobe. I love S/S fashion because after the long months of just throwing on a scarf and a coat its finally time to channel your inner festival chic vis-a-vis Vanessa Hudgens/Alexa Chung.
I'm fairly certain Alexa Chung's everlasting 'it' girl status is here to stay and every summer I find myself stalking the internet to see what she's wearing, especially at Fashion Week and Glastonbury, and I think I've narrowed down a few wardrobe essentials.

Esprit is a brand that screams festival chic, from distressed denim to every accessory you could want. A simple, effortless outfit every girl needs is a pair of denim cutoffs with a pretty blouse top and there is so many combinations of this outfit it will last through the hotter months, as you can add sandals or boots, hats and jewellery or go simple with no accessories at all.
Adding some aviators and a fedora can pull any casual outfit together with little to no effort which is great for summer because its all about the comfort! And speaking of comfort, a maxi skirt or dress is an item that everyone call pull off, and they're pretty much all in live in through june to august!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and let me know who your style inspirations are for summer 2015!
