Summer's calling


This last week has been bliss. The UK has FINALLY seen some sun and this taste of summer has me dusting off items from my summer wardrobe and yearning to travel.

Where is your favourite holiday destination?

Personally. I need sun, a cocktail in hand and good food (that I always photo document!). I’m a bit of tourist and like to see the sights, but at the same time, I like exploring the area and finding new things to see / eat / do.

My favourite holiday so far? Tenerife. In accordance with the above, as much as I loved doing touristy things like dolphin boat tours and seeing Teide, I liked simply walking for hours on end, exploring every crevice of the island until the sun set.

Holiday style:

Typically I dress for the heat in something floaty and comfortable – usually playsuits and dresses which can take you from day to night. I find that the perfect pair(s) of shoes aid the day – night transition. Sandals and flats by day. Wedges, heels and glitz by night. Regular readers of mine will know about my love of heels. And all shoe kind in general. I even wrote a shoe ode once. Because that’s how I roll.

Hair wise, I usually go for tousled waves whilst on holiday. I love the boho look and frequently find myself plaiting my hair to the side or sporting Maid Marion style braids.

What kinds of things do you wear on holiday?

  1. I wear just floaty light coloured garments, usually dresses or oversized longline shirts! I've never been to Tenerife before, my favourite place is the south west of the uk :) xx
