Hey lovelies!

If you follow my Instagram you will know that I recently got back from the most amazing 3 weeks away in Greece and Portugal! When we go away I tend to like to keep things casual and natural – in fact, we usually only take hand luggage so I couldn’t take loads of outfit changes with me even if I wanted to! However, I always make sure I take a couple of lovely dresses with me to wear in the evenings because I absolutely love holiday fashion. Here are a few of my favourite looks from our trip!


Every girl needs a short, white, floaty dress for a holiday right?! It’s such a staple piece and I feel like it looks amazing with a beach backdrop, especially with a bit of a tan! I love this dress because it can be styled casually or more dressy. It’s also super flattering as it’s a beautiful floaty shape and is layered in all the right places. This dress is from New Look a few seasons ago but you can shop a similar look here.

This is my absolute favourite maxi dress in the whole world! Not only because it is super comfortable; you can literally throw it on and it hangs so nicely, but also because it colours and patterns are so beautiful! The material is really nice and thin which makes it really cool in a warm country and I just feel like it looks amazing and so summery. A floral print is one of my favourite styles for holiday and although I usually go for more pastel colours I like the boldness of this dress and it really stands out and makes an impact. Shop similar styles with this floaty maxi , this bright printed number, or this pretty floral dress.


I saved my favourite until last. I adore this cream and pastel co ord set so much! I bought this last year again, from New Look, for our post-wedding boat cruise event which took place the day after our wedding. I’ve loved it ever since and I tend to save it for special occasions on holiday. The floral pattern is gorgeous and I love the big flowers and well as the peachy colour. The wrap-around style also makes it flattering and helps give me a waist. I always get compliments on this outfit! You can shop similar with this wrap-around dress or this beautiful co-ord set.

Big thanks to my gorgeous husband for snapping these outfit shots for me!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my favourite holiday fashion guys! What are your go-to holiday looks? Let me know!

I was absolutely delighted to receive this beautiful red rain coat and matching umbrella from Hunter’s new Autumn/Winter ‘Core Concept’ collection last week. I love Hunter’s Wellington boots and have worn them for festivals and Autumn walks for years. Saying this I had never tried their clothing or other products before.

The colour of the jacket is this amazing scarlet red so I couldn’t wait to get out on a grey autumn morning and shoot some contrast shots with the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich as our background.

So, down to business. The new Core Concepts collection concentrates on stylish and versatile rainwear which is functional but also looks fabulous. The jacket is the Women’s Original Vinyl Smock and is available in a range of bold and striking colours. I really like the cut and style of the jacket; particularly the ‘skirt style’ bottom of the coat which is very flattering and the slightly nipped in waist. The pockets are also very streamlined and attractive, especially with the iconic Hunter label on the left hand side.  These features make the coat more aesthetically appealing than the average rain mack and means I would choose to wear it for fashion as well as function. The red colour is super striking too.

However, that’s not to say that the coat is not functional – it really is! The smock is totally waterproof, lightweight and thin whilst being warm at the same time. The neck and bottom of the coat have toggles which enable the wearer to tighten these areas in case of heavy rain and the hood has a practical peak at the front which would allow rain to run off the front without getting the face wet.  These little features speak volumes for the quality of the coat and I have no doubt it would withstand the windiest and wettest country walks!

You can view Hunter’s Original Vinyl Smock in a range of colours here.


I’m ashamed to admit that I have never invested in a ‘decent’ umbrella; having always been caught out in the rain and just having to run from shop to shop trying not to get soaked. However, after trialling the Original Moustache Bubble Umbrella on a typical rainy Autumn day I am totally converted! I can be seen here happily enjoying the view of Canary Wharf across the Thames, staying totally dry whilst the rain pours down.  The ‘bubble’ style of this umbrella works by incasing your whole head and shoulders to keep your upper body totally dry and doing a great job of protecting the rest of your body too.

As well as being really good at it’s job this umbrella is really stylish and I’m loving it’s matte finish red ‘moustache’ design on the edges and the handle is finished with a really attractive matte red too.  The clear section enables you to see through the umbella well but the red trim gives it a bit of style and colour. These umbrellas are also available in a range of colours to match the Core Concept coats and boots.

You can view and purchase the Moustache Bubble Umbrellas here.

As you can see we then had a characteristic British total change in the weather and within an hour the Autumn sun shine was making an appearance. I wanted to illustrate how appropriate the jacket is even if it isn’t raining. It is stylish and warm enough to wear just as a lightweight coat for any weather of occasion.  Plus the oranges and greens of the foliage were just too beautiful to pass by without taking some pictures. This time of year can be stunning in nature.
