Cami - Topshop
Trousers - Warehouse

So I have a confession….

I have a little growing obsession with doors... and wide leg trousers but that one comes at no surprise, their popping more and more on Street & Rail
Yes that's right doors! The more distressed and dishevelled the better. Slightly strange i know. It’s not something I consciously realised till I returned home and started downloading the photos…. door after door after door. 
Whoops! You’d never think I was staying beachside :/

Speaking of doors. One has suddenly flown open at a time I least expected.
I'm about to embark on a new adventure as of Tuesday morning. Exciting stuff! I'll have to keep you all updated. For now it's time to enjoy the bank holiday weekend (the last bank holiday before Christmas incase you'd forgotten)
Fingers Crossed the weather manages to sustain the steady heat longer than a day this time :)

Happy Bank Holiday Weekend-ing

It's probably clear to most that I'm none too fussed about tanning. Actually it just so happens I'm opposed to it for a number of reasons: 1. I am already brown (all year round), 2. It's not worth skin damage, and 3. the struggle to find a foundation shade is already way too real, without complicating the mix with a needing to hunt for a seasonal range of shades. That being said, it seems my body has miraculously developed a super power to tan in the shade.

Nevertheless, this gorgeous light linen shawl does the perfect job in keeping cool and shading me from the blaring UV rays radiating from above. Fun floaty and free, just what I'm looking for in a beachside basic.

.....straight in the suitcase ready for the next getaway in a few weeks!

The countdown begins!

Postcards from Portugal

Just what I needed!

I come back to you feeling refuelled, refreshed and rearing to go after an absolutely incredible week in Portugal. A quick escape is sometimes the best only medicine you need in order to clear your mind, regather your thoughts and come back with the best plan of attack. 

After a week solely dedicated to shade-bathe-ing by the beach, admiring the architecture and surrounding myself in nature (minus that Humongous spider!), there’s little else I could have wished for. 

As imagined, its been made up of endless belly-aching laughs and insightful conversations alike, with friends I can only describe as family. You know you have a special bond when you can go over two years with minimal contact and pick-up where you left off. It’s as though no time had pasted at all! 
One of many girly getaways I’m sure, but full of memorable moments nonetheless. 

As always the camera was on hand to capture it all…

If you haven’t been to Portugal already, you’ll soon be booking your flights.

Happy Snapping,
Tan xx
