This post is focused on the perfect beach and pool wear.

I recently spent the week in Marrakech and it was literally amazing, nearly 40 degrees every day – absolute bliss!

I’ve been lucky enough to work with some great brands recently to show you guys some perfect holiday pieces.

The above was one of my favourite looks, lace flares are such a perfect stylish cover up for the day or to go out at night in.

All the above bikinis are from my babes at Missguided.

Missguided and A Bikini a Day recently collaborated to create ABADXMISSGUIDED and the result is SO good.

I love the strappy details of the bikini, maybe my tan lines don’t love it so much though.

The pink one is just too cute with the mesh cover up top <3

This pink swimsuit and white kimono are from MissPap including the sunnies! MissPap have an insane affordable holiday selection, go check them out now!

All that shines

I have just got back from the most amazing trip to Marrakech! 

Expect a detailed blog post about it soon… the country is so beautiful I managed to get lots of great content whilst I was there and can’t wait to share with you all about it! 

As I have mentioned before, lace up shoes are a MUST HAVE this summer. I couldn’t resist these bad boys from Missguided, so much so I got them in a pink colour as well 😀 

They are right on trend with the perspex heel and long laces, as well as being really comfy and easy to walk in. 

This is my new favourite bag – I love the similarity it has with the ever so popular Chloe bags and the fringe details sets it aside from your standard black shoulder bag. 

I am like a magpie when it comes to all things shiny! Any satin or silk material I instantly fall in love with. 

My playsuit in this post is from Pretty Little Thing and was a great holiday piece. The olive colour is lovely and looks great with a tan.

 Unfortunately for me this was taken at the beginning of the holiday so I am still a little pale haha.

On Wednesdays we wear pink…

Happy Hump Day!

(still don’t know what that means apart from it’s Wednesday…)

All pink everythang for today’s post.

No matter what the colour is, if you colour match head-to-toe – you’re set to have a striking outfit and make a bold fashion statement.  

I loved this skirt because number 1, it’s satin, and 2, the daring side splits give it a little somethin’ somethin’. 
It’s a perfect holiday piece to wear in the evening.

These EGO pink suede mules are like they are made for me! Mules are a key trend this summer and are also super comfy so it’s a win win.

Lady on-the-go

I feel like I have literally been non-stop on-the-go for the past few months. Living and/or working in London is amazing, but it can also be super stressful!

Some people like to constantly be busy and doing things, and whilst I do love it I can also easily happily spend my days relaxing and not doing much at all without feeling like I am wasting my time.

They key is to find a happy balance of work, play and you time which we so often neglect. 

I love to spend a bit of time on my own, listening to music and pondering life, whether it is sitting on a long train journey, relaxing in a hot bath or being in bed. It is a time that I find I am most creative and can come up with exciting ideas and plans and literally recharge my battery so to speak.

Tips for all you busy bees:  

– Spend at least one evening or afternoon by yourself a week, even if it is only popping out for a walk in the park  

– Try and get over FOMO (fear of missing out)- it can be tiring attending every social occasion you ever hear about!  

–  Time is precious so choose how you spend it wisely. I realised in the past couple of years I used to meet up with people I didn’t even really like that much – what’s the point?! I’d honestly rather have fewer close friends than spread myself thinly and have more fake friends

– Don’t tire yourself out to the point where you are not yourself. Relax. Take a spa break. Have some time off just to do NOTHING – it’s bloody wonderful

My outfit I am wearing for this post is a perfect on-the-go outfit. It is nice and comfy but still smart, and can easily switch from smart to instant casual completely dependent on the footwear.

Food

This bank holiday just gone I ate some really good food.

I came across Oliver Maki – a few month old Japanese restaurant in Soho.

I can safely say it is for sure a new favourite of mine, the prices were reasonable for (amazing) sushi, the décor was lovely and the service was excellent.

The menu’s are on an iPad, 2016 and all that…

Some of the dishes I had to name a few included:

– Tuna and salmon tartar

– Shrimp tacos

– Spicy tuna rolls

– Volcano rolls (soft shell crab)

– Yellowtail and jalapeno sashimi

– Green tea tiramisu

   

 



Flower Power

Floral appliqué is a key trend this season and certainly worth investing in a piece for your summer wardrobe. 

It looks gorgeous on bodysuits, tops, dresses and even detailing on shorts and jeans to add a feminine twist to the classic denim.  

With underwear as outerwear, mesh and floral details all being key trends this season, I couldn’t resist this statement bodysuit. 

It is a little on the revealing side so I paired it with a pair of ivory satin Palazzo trousers to balance out the nakedness! I think any sort of bodysuit works best with either trousers or a pencil skirt to maintain a classy look as I like to leave a little to the imagination…
