Denim Midis & Peaceful Seas

Hey lovelies!

I honestly didn't think that I would be sporting a midi dress like this one before the age of 30. I bought this dress from New Look a short while ago and absolutely loved it from the moment that I tried it on but after making the purchase and eventually wearing it on my holiday, I began to worry that the style or at least the cut of it suited a more mature woman. I may have been wrong...

Denim is and always will be in fashion, in whatever shape or form you like, and this is probably why this dress works so well. The fit glides over my slightly curvier figure and ensures that my waist is cinched in with the oh-so-handy thin waist tie. Luckily enough, the bardot style makes this a somewhat classic piece for a summer wardrobe, therefore presenting me with several more opportunities to wear this again in the future.

The dress proved to be the perfect option for an evening out of exploring the town and spending some quality time with the family at our favourite restaurant - check out my last post to see a few pictures!


P.S. Let me know what you think about this style of dress and if you would wear it yourself!

Grecian Ties

Hey lovelies!

I've had and always will have a soft spot for Greece. The food, the language, the music, the extremely cheesy TV shows and the stereotype that plates are ALWAYS being smashed all make up who I am. I may not be overly immersed in the culture but my family is Greek and therefore as an extension, I too am Greek and I'm proud to be! Have you never seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding? I mean, what's there not to love?!

Greece is such a beautiful country and there is nothing better then returning to a place that makes you feel welcome in all aspects of its society. The Greeks love to showcase what they're good at and more often than not, they do so without much effort at all. We love to eat so its natural for restaurants to showcase the country's finest dishes through their very large portions and luckily enough the staff's bilingual talent will ensure that you're not stuck with a meal that you accidentally mispronounced. What's more, Greece boasts some of the most world renowned sea views due to its luxurious looking beaches and gorgeous mountain top horizons.

I had such a fun time rediscovering my love for the country in Skala Oropos, a little town just an hour outside of the capital city Athens. There is so much to love about this place, despite the fact that it is slightly out of the way of the general hustle and bustle that you would be used to on a holiday. The beach is absolutely stunning, the centre of town has views that make for perfect Instagram shots and the people are ever so sweet and welcoming. There is no doubt about whether or not I will return to Oropos because it is honestly a home away from home in so many respects. Enjoy the photos my loves!
