How to bring a pop of colour into your home

On a rainy summer day, I love to get stuck into little craft/diy projects and this one came from the desire of brining some colour into my home.

Maxi love

When I think summer holiday, I think loose floaty dresses, so when I found this Topshop Dress that also had a gorgeous pattern on the right kind of red (if you know what I mean :)), it was love at first sight!

Ultimate Beach Dress

We've come back from a lovely week in La Palma, a place I stumbled upon while looking for a cheaper summer holiday after going skying this February.

It is a volcanic island, and the huge resort is about 50 minutes of extremely windy roads away, and not much else around unless you're like hubby and love climbing and running, then it never stops giving! :)

Since I could not leave the resort (I get car sick very easily), I knew it was the perfect time to guilt trip hubby into taking quite a few photos after leaving me alone to do his runs and exploring! :)

First outfit, based around this cute, tile print, handkerchief design beach dress from Monsoon, bit see through but that's fine for a beach dress even if you wear it at night while on holiday. The shape of it, the v-neck and the high pinched waist is very flattering for a more voluptuous body shape like mine.

Fancy skirt, casual outfit

I don't wear skirts that often as it actually takes a lot of thought sometimes putting an outfit together around a skirt! :)

Was so drawn to this floral asymmetric skirt from Boohoo at Asos though that I decided to give it a go, and was so happy with the item when it arrived!

It is well lined, high waisted, elasticated as well as having a zip, the shape is different and stands out and the print and colours are gorgeous!

Happy July!!!!

Having just returned from my summer holiday in La Palma and today being the first day of July, I decided to concentrate my posts this month mostly on summer holiday wear and a few of the places I recommend for booking a summer holiday.

I will start with Knaresborough, a local stunner which I have featured on my blog before so please follow the link here Dreaming of Knaresborough, for a few words about the place and an outfit I still totally adore! :)

Dottie's Gelati - Vintage & Ice Cream Love

I love vintage as much as I love new & contemporary, and the launch of Dottie's Artisan Gelato & Vintage Tea Room was the perfect choice for a day out on a sunny Bank Holiday weekend!
