Perfect time for a UK staycation!

Perfect time for a UK staycation!

Hello beautiful people! Is it me but is this turning out to be one of the best summers we have had for a while in the UK? With pretty much guaranteed sun throughout June and July, what better time to squeeze in that UK staycation you have been postponing summer after summer.

Tempted by the just gone sunny month of June, we decided to book a family retreat in July to none other than the English Riviera, Devon. The family and I have just come back from six glorious sun filled days and nights in Teignmouth, Devon and it really didn’t disappoint at all. I mean at times the beauty of this place was so unexpectedly breathtaking that you could be forgiven for mistaking it for somewhere in the Mediterranean. Top this off with the beautiful drive up and no hassle of airport terminals, then the UK coastline is a real competitive option.

It’s all about the shades

And hello again beautiful people! Yes it’s that time of year when it’s all about the shades🙌🏾

Yesssssss! it’s time to rock them as you feel suits! I love the appeal of sunglasses and how we all have different preferences aligned to personality, style and mood. They basically are as is fashion as a whole, extended expression of our personalities these days, as in are you fun? Bold? Laid back? Wacky? Eccentric? There are sunglasses to fit all star signs, personalities and moods. Most of all your style of choice at a given place and time.

I have a few favourites of my own this season as set out below in no particular order:

1. The Gucci Sylvie Webb gold metal red blue and white sunglasses for that stunning bold retro look.

2. The D&G round detail acetate and metal sunglasses for that classic chilled out riviera look.

3. The D&G round metal trim sunglasses with a Leo print clip on to accessorise as you feel fit. These are definitely bold being oversized, especially if accessorised with the Leo print clip on as I have in the below pic.

Which shades are floating your boat this season? I mean there are loads to choose from😀stressful fun, but I would always advise going for the ones that make you feel like yessssss! I’m good to go😎

Popping in Summer Blue

Popping in Summer Blue

Hello again, a glorious week so far with those beautiful sun rays we have all been waiting for finally beaming down. I mean what else can one ask for living in the UK, well that and the England football team making it to the quarter final of the world cup, at least🙏🏽.

Summer seems to be officially here as we brace ourselves for the heat wave this week. I am sure I am not alone when I say we welcome the sizzling temperatures come what may and I for one will be joining ladies everywhere and rocking all those wonderful summer hues. Wednesday felt perfectly suited to throw on a light blue pleated Sandro dress.

Dress: Sandro Keep on Dancing Floaty Printed dress

Summer blue 5This dress is a current season Sandro, both quaint and quirky with hints of dark pink/light red writing “keep dancing” and tiny polka dot details. It really is a super cool versatile dress that can be worn from day to night, to the park with flats, dinner with pointed pumps or simply pair as I have done with black and off white striped espadrille wedges from J.Crew.

Accessories: J.Crew espadrille wedges/Sandro pink pointed pumps

 

The pink pumps will add an evening appeal for that special dinner date, glass or two on a sunny rooftop, whatever suits! Either way you’re bound to look and feel fabulous.

A small powder blue shoulder bag with a drop to the hip will make for an effortless look.
