Ciao Bella!

I’ll admit, it’s taken me a few days to get my Italian Style on. After a year of winter and a distinct lack of vitamin D, far too many pub meals, bouts of insomnia, a logistical nightmare of a removal and some very sad farewells I’ll admit I’ve been feeling frumpy and let’s be honest, just a little bit grumpy. We planned this holiday months ago so we’d have a few days of family relaxing time before our next big adventure. I don’t think I realised just how much we needed it. On our first few days here I struggled, my pale and pasty body felt out of place here amongst all this beauty and there are some photo’s you most certainly won’t be seeing. But today, I feel like I’ve started to relax, caught enough sun that I don’t look unwell and finally got my summer holiday grove on.

The beautiful turquoise skirt is from New Look, a bargain at just £15, I’m wishing I’d picked it up in more colours as it’s light and practical for travelling and oh so easy to wear. The top is from my favourite, Warehouse, I love the lace and mesh detailing and the colour is just a shade or two lighter than Navy, which suits my colourings perfectly. If you look closely you might see I’m wearing my Havaianas thongs, of course I could have worn my lovely LK Bennet silver flats or Dune tan wedges, but sometimes you just have to be comfortable!

Tomorrow is Max’s 3rd birthday, so we’re taking him on a boat ride to a nearby town. Stay tuned xo
