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.

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).

Stars and stripes!

Where better to celebrate America than in the city of music??
Making sure that my suitcase was filled with an appropriately patriotic colour themed wardrobe, I ventured to Nashville for the Independence Day long weekend.

From Paris with LOVE

Firstly, apologies for the long time between updates. It has been far too long!
It has been a crazy few months and I have not been able to spend time on blogging.
It’s a new year however, and it comes with new updates for the blog!

As a start 2014 I wanted to share my Parisian adventure with you all.
I was fortunate enough to visit late last year.

Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world.
Spring, summer, autumn, winter – it really doesn’t matter.

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.
