THE POWER ACCESSORY


I posted this look on my Instagram earlier this week and you went crazy for it, the bag in particular. I actually borrowed the Chloe dupe from Emma, the minute I met her to photograph I knew I just had to feature it. (Thanks Emma!) It is from a website called Jessica Burrman, similar to the likes of Choies, Sheinside and Chicwish except it specialises in all things accessories and footwear. If theres a dupe your on the hunt for I just know you'll find it there! If you're sick of this jacket, I'm not sorry. I just love it! You can see how I've styled it here with high waisted denim shorts. I've also worn the mustard colour way here with a denim midi skirt.

Get The Look;
The faux suede jacket also comes in mustard, tan and rust.

The Chloe Faye has been a firm favourite of mine since it was spotted on bloggers all over the globe. 
Unfortunately this is reality and for now the dupe will do! Check out the black and grey colourways.

I splurged on these ATP Atelier sandals earlier this month and I'm so glad I did as they've gotten a crazy amount of wear ever since.  Daisy Street do an identical pair in black for a more reasonable £15.99

What I'm Wearing; Missguided Jacket*, Missguided Blouse*, Asos Jeans, ATP Atelier Sandals, Asos Sunglasses and Jessica Burrman Bag (Emma's!)

RED BARDOT FLARED SLEEVE DRESS


First thing's first, how gorgeous is the colour of this off the shoulder dress from Chicwish? As you know by now I am a big fan of anything with bell sleeves, off the shoulder or a bardot style. So when I came across this dress with the most amazing tiered sleeves in the most gorgeous tone of red, it went straight into my basket!

Although Chicwish are an online retailer with offices based in China in my experiences when ordering online they are always delivered within a week, which I know is the biggest worry when we order from websites that are not based in the UK. Free shipping is also an option if you are prepared to wait `12-18 business days. (I love ordering bits online, forgetting I've done so and being surprised when the postman hands them to me!)

What I'm Wearing: Chicwish Dress*, Chicwish Fringe Bag*, Asos Sandals & Asos Sunglasses.

Below are my current favourites from Chicwish!

HEPBURN, WITH RADLEY



I don't know about you but the thing I love most about blogging is working with brands-especially the brands you grew up wearing. Radley London has had a major make over since I last sported the Scottie dog logo on my way to and from school. Say hello to Radley's iconic new capsule collection, Hepburn. Hepburn, named after the Icon that is Audrey Hepburn, the collection is described as "a classic and uncluttered timeless piece" reminiscent of the 50's and 60's handbag silhouettes. Naturally it only seemed right to unveal the new collection at the National Portrait Gallery surrounded by unseen images of the icon herself.

The bag comes in four colour-ways, not to mention there are four different way's the Hepburn can be worn-making it the ultimate summer accessory. (Wearing the bag as on your wrist whilst sipping a glass of pimms sounds good to me!)

What do you think of Radley's new makeover?

What I'm Wearing: Asos Top, Lavish Alice Culottes, ATP Atelier Sandals, Radley Bag*, Le Specs Sunglasses.

OUR HONEYMOON PHOTO DIARY - THE MALDIVES

Myself and my husband (EEK!) returned from the most amazing honeymoon a little over 4 weeks ago now. We visited the Niyana, Maldives for a week followed by a 5 night stay in Dubai. Once returned, honeymoon blues in tow I knew I just had to share our experiences with you. Stay on the look out for Part two where I will share our stay in The Atlantis, Dubai.


"Sun kissed. Jungle embraced. White sand cradled. Lagoon lapped. Choose your habitat from beachfront studios to water pavilions set within crystal seas.
Explore the indulgences from private infinity pools to Jacuzzis to high-tech toys, daybed cocoons, open-air bathrooms and in-villa spa treatment rooms.Spacious luxury with beachfront and waterfront studios and pavilions creating contemporary spaces for the ultimate in seamless indoor and outdoor living. Chic style meets relaxed lounging at PER AQUUM Niyama, along with state-of-the-art entertainment technology, to slumber, chill-out, dine or simply ‘be’."
 
Travel
If you're a nervous flyer then you might want to brace yourself. The Maldives is off the coast of Sri Lanka. You're talking a 7 hour flight to Dubai followed by another 4 hour flight to the Maldives and then an hour long journey via seaplane-which is an experience in it's self!

Rooms
We chose to stay in a Water Studio, complete with our very own pool. Described as an Ocean slumber with steps to the lagoon-a sparkling palette of blues! Greeted by champagne flutes, your villa is a private world to explore. Expanse beyond, where ivory sails catch the breeze. Crisp white furnishings and splashes of aqua inside and out. Sink into a deep bathtub overlooking the turquoise ocean, yours to explore at your own pace. Staying in a studio above the ocean was the best decision we ever made! Awaking to the sound of the ocean lapping gently against the white sand of the shore was pure heaven, not to mention the panoramic sunrise to sunset views.

Food
If you do get to experience the Niyama then you have to dine in at the Subsix. Described as "an under water playground" you'd be mad not to experience champagne six metres underwater! If dinning above the Indian Ocean isn't your cup of tea your mad the Niyama also boasts 8 themed restaurants serving everything from African cuisine campfire dinning at Tribal to Nest which offers gourmet wonderland of Asian specialties sat in the multi-level treehouse design. Spoilt for choice is an understatement!

Weather
I've been asked this question frequently. "What was the weather like?" The weather was beautiful. The wet season in the Maldives is from May-October, despite visiting in June we were extremely lucky to experience a week long stay of gorgeous weather regularly tipping 33 degrees. November-April is dry season so if its guaranteed weather you are after I'd advise visiting between those months. (The Maldives is crazy expensive so if you are flexible with your dates I'd recommend comparing the month before and after you'd like to go, you'd be surprised how much you are able to save. The saving could be the difference between a Water Studio or Beach Studio.

Overall if you are thinking of visiting the Maldives it is a once in a lifetime holiday. So "Instagrammable" it doesn't even need a filter! If you are thinking of visiting the Niyama or you've holiday'ed there before then please let me know, I'd love to hear about your experience!

If you're not already booking your flights to the Maldives as we speak, below is a small look at my Insta-Diary! You can follow my Instagram here.
