Shades of summer

What could be better than lazy sun filled days? Summer is just the best!!
From simple minimal makeup to your outfit, neutrals and pastels are the perfect compliment..

Minimal makeup. Les Beiges for cheeks and a nude palette for eyes (with just one quick application of mascara)!

Beautiful detail on this sleeveless blouse makes it less casual, while still keeping you cool on hot summer days.

Just a splash of pink!

Just a tiny bit of pink, goes a long way!

This outfit all started with the shoes. All pink base, then dipped almost entirely in black leaving just a peep of pink at the front — so fun!
Loved this concept of just having only a tiny dash of the feature colour, so applied it to the remainder of the outfit.

Leather & Lace

Taking a bit of a walk on the dark side in all black leather and lace…
All black does not need to be goth, and is prefect for the glorious winter day outside.

Testing out this cute faux leather skirt before I invest in a real one.
Thoughts?

I love the leather details on this winter coat!

Ev & The City – Charleston Edition

I am pretty much ready to run away to the South!
After a few days, I have fallen deeply in love with Charleston.

DSC_0289 DSC_0240 DSC_0264 DSC_0272 DSC_0295 DSC_0306

The food (yes I tried grits, and no they are not for me!), the cute buildings running along cobblestone streets, the history, markets, horse drawn carriages…
Added to this, it was perfect warm weather every day.
Ohhh so dreamy – leaving me in a pastel frame of mind.

Under the boardwalk…

I was lucky enough to spend the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the South, by the beach.
The Isle of Palms, just twenty minutes out of Charleston, was beautiful. Long beaches, perfect weather – an amazing escape.

My tropic inspired dress comes courtesy of H&M – and their conscious collection.
So now you can feel good about a cute dress, at an incredible price, WHILE doing something better for the environment. Win, win and win.

Teamed up with some cute spring pumps, and my new venture the BIG HAT!
I have always been terrified of the large brimmed hat, but finally made the leap. Thoughts?

Colour, sparkle & shine – always sublime!

Sparkles and colour are always a nice outfit addition – holiday season or not (though I for one am in denial that the holidays have past).
Ready for wherever the days adventure may take you. Coffee with the girls, a stroll through the city, or a sneaky early evening cocktail.

Mix black with some bold coloured garments and throw in a sparkly jacket – off you go.

Being on another continent these past few weeks has certainly not stopped me shopping, and these seasons sales were good to me!.
Here are just a few of the finds I am loving at the moment.

Pop on this MANGO cropped Sequins & Beads jacket, paired with this fun MANGO Maxi Studs top.
(Speaking of MANGO – how good does Kate Moss look in their campaign. GORGE!!)

Now we all want to brighten up our winter – an easy way to do it is with some bold pants.
I found these great bright red pair on the sale rack at H&M! They are super comfortable, with a nice cut suitable for either work or play!

Every outfit is at it’s best when finished off with a Louboutin shoe – here with the gorgeous “Decollete” glossy leather pump.

Sparkle the winter away…

Winter Wonderland

Snow storm Athena covered NY and it’s surrounds in some beautiful snow.

Yes, the tourist in me was jumping up and down with delight as I saw snow flakes outside my window late Wednesday afternoon – meanwhile my co-workers looked at me and sighed. The sight of fresh snow did not hold the same dreamlike fairytale connotations for them, as they are accustomed to such sights and the implications for travel etc.

What is it about snow though?
The beautiful white covering makes everything appear magical.
I wanted to break out in spontaneous Christmas songs (we all know that snow equals Santa, come on now), and the snow-covered street lamps taking me back to far off magical lands like Narnia – ok am I off on a tangent now?

All this white did reinvigorate my love for the colour.
Fall, winter – sure who cares, you can wear white.

I know there are those who question white in the colder months. I for one say embrace.
OK so maybe not white jeans if it’s pouring out, however there are plenty of nice fall/winter days where white items can be a key feature of your outfit.

Below are some items that I am now salivating over.
