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.

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.

More from Tennessee

Sun, fun and…comfort.
Summer tank with shorts and comfy shoes. Perfect for a day full of walking around seeing the sites.

I previously talked about mix and match pieces when you pack – it can be a whole new outfit with just a top change!
It’s all about maximising that suitcase space.

Travel Time

If you have a love for clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories… or ALL of these… there is one thing that scares you more than humidity for curly hair. Packing.
First of all I am not, I repeat NOT, a clairvoyant. I can NOT see into the future. How am I supposed to know what I will feel like wearing tomorrow or the next day??????

So while I can’t take this pain away completely, I will share some tips to try and at least ease the pain of packing.
(1) Claim as much luggage space as possible if you are travelling with a significant other
(2) Pick one or two colour themes
(3) Try a few pieces that are easily “mix and matches”
(4) Avoid changing climates if possible (when going from hot to cold packing those massive jackets takes up WAY too much shoe space)

With the above in mind, I went with a lot of red-white-blue recently for my 4th July trip to Nashville.

Longer sleeves keep you warm if the plan is overly air-conditioned (though with split sleeves that was questionable lol).

Wanted Wednesday

This week I am dreaming, drooling and obsessing over these epic CHANEL shoes.
They have taken the classic black pump — to the next level!

CC pumps

Pumps that I simply must own.
May sell non-vital organs to fund…. Hmmmm…

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.

Beige & Black

As the promise of springtime hangs in the air, one can now be brave enough to leave the house without the huge winter coat.
However, later in the day as the sun prepares to set, the weather does still require that one additional layer of warmth. So, another furry vest it is 🙂

I stumbled upon this ombre vest (mixed up amongst skirts at a sale) just a week after my shoe purchase.
The two match perfectly, and I love this combo! The soft fur and ombre colouring contrast with all black really well.
