Travel Diary – Croatia

One of my highlights of the summer definitely has to be the week I spent in Croatia. We stayed on the island of Brac in a small town called Supetar. It was quite a sleepy little place and we came before the hight of the season so it wasn't ram packed with tourists... just the way I like it! The centre of the town was car-free and the streets wound up and around away from the harbour. We had lots of long lunches, walked it off by wandering the streets and then went back to a busy schedule of reading by the pool. A perfect break away from what has been a pretty hectic year. Would I visit again? Definitely!

Holiday Mood

bikinis and swimsuit

The holiday mood is well and truly setting in now. In about an hour I'm off to the airport and off to Croatia for 7 days of sunshine, discovering island towns and lazy days by the pool.

For Croatia I favoured classic stripes, an elegant black swimsuit and a simple navy bikini with a playful pattern from COS. As per usual the colour scheme is dark and simple, a tiger can't change his stripes and all that... Although a touch of colour will be brought in through accessories.

Holiday Inspiration

I just booked a weeks holiday in Croatia at the end of June and I can't wait to go! It's going to be just what I need, some relaxing by the pool, trips in to the little harbour town, cycling to the beach and long nights at the hotels roof top bar... Bring on June!! In terms of my poolside look, a black swimsuit is on my list of must haves for the holiday.

Fell In Love All Over Again

The first time I went to New York I totally fell in love with the city. Granted it was October and much warmer than back home, this time it was -10c and blowing a gale... It's been a long time since I felt cold like that before. Despite this I fell in love with New York all over again, how could you not?

4 more sleeps and then I'm off to New York for fashion week! It was a bit of a last minute decision, but I'm beyond excited. It's been almost 10 years since I last visited the city, so a trip there has been long overdue.
