Reflecting white

Just before heading east to Hong Kong, I managed a few more shoots in the beautiful city of Paris. With the backdrop of such an architecturally rich city it inspires one to “up ones game” and look chic even if in a pair of denims (did I mention how much I love a pair of denims?) I also love this summer’s all-white trend and I’ve longingly looked at the white denims in store and lusted after a pair, but each time I’ve slipped them on, they just don’t look right on me. So, instead I’ve found myself a light grey pair that I’m more comfortable in and works with summer’s lights ‘n whites – with the added help of these voguish Spartan sandals from IRO of course (totally obsessed with them). I’ve been able to mix and match these denims with almost everything and cheat on the all-white look too. So, if like me, you love the idea of summer whites but can’t bring yourself to wear an actual pair of white denims, then go for the …

On the Lust-have List ❤ Summer Sunnies!

The sun is out and I need a large sunglass draw – one that opens up and displays all your sunglasses neatly in rows, so that I’d be able to clearly see which ones I should be wearing with each day’s outfit! Instead, my sunnies are dropped into their boxes and dumped in a draw with a whole lot of other accessories that I have to riffle through to find the pair that I want! All those dreams of my perfect wardrobe, sigh. In the meantime I’m extending that dream to fit all of these new pairs of delicious shades (this dream is getting more and more grand ain’t it?!) It doesn’t take too much to zing up a seemingly bland outfit, and yes, I definitely have many of these days. I like to jazz it up with a pair of sunglasses (in fact I’m a sucker for a new pair!). Sunglasses + an accessory or two + a favourite handbag et voila can anyone say celebrity style?! Have a little fun with this season’s …

Palma hues

An afternoon walk in Palma de Mallorca amongst the city’s cobbled streets, sherbet coloured walls, pretty balconies and contrasting shutters called for a simple outfit. Hello denims. Denims are my staple and I probably wear them 60% of the time. I find them comfortable, versatile and no fuss. They’re the “easy going” item that can be made up or dressed down and are always included in my travel wardrobe, coming in very handy when you find yourself exploring a beautiful city such as Palma. Each season comes with its own styles, colours and details and so a pair of denims is not usually an investment item for me – I prefer to buy the high street versions from Zara and H&M, mostly so don’t feel too bad at the end of the season when the new styles take my fancy. Summer has brought with it the shorter ankle grazer with frayed edges and torn knees (the I-don’t-really-care-look!) and while I’m sure this won’t last for too much longer, I love that it screams suuuuuummer, especially in this …

Ola! I’m off to ESPAÑOL-A!

By this time every year after a few months of heavy winter coats, cozy scarves, thick socks and hardcore boots I’m itching to get some sun, sea and beach. May in France is full of holidays so gives the ideal time to break away and find some much-needed soleil au bord de la mer – although I don’t need any excuse to explore and travel! Our spring destination this year is Majorca, the ancient and largest island in the Balearic Islands archipelago in Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. Majorca has a long history that dates back to the Neolithic period of history, but the Phoenicians were the first to colonise the Island and then it was the Romans who founded the capital, Palma. After being conquered over the centuries and changing hands many times now the Island is part of Spain and attracts plenty of tourists and travellers with it’s beautiful coastlines, interesting history and picturesque architecture. Big blue sunny skies, long hot days, late tapas dinners, sand and sea… So what does a girl pack for such a holiday? Well, I’ve …
