Spectacular Santorini!

I have just found heaven on earth – it is off the coast of mainland Greece, on the island of Santorini.
Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe this paradise. I am in love, obsessed, already thinking about when I can go back…

The dramatic cliffside dotted with white grecian architecture provide an amazing sight with the bluest backdrop of the Aegean Sea.
Literally, a summer playground like no other.

Florals and corals

Summertime should not preclude you from wearing black.
Au contraire – you just need to make it feel more summery with some florals, or a splash of colour!

My favourite colour this season has to be anything in the coral family. I am finding myself drawn to anything coral spotted on the rack.
So pretty and feminine.

So here is my version of a summertime “black” outfit.

Love this Alex Perry top with a beautiful big floral pattern, an interesting vest-like shape at the top and flattering pleats.

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.

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.
