It’s In The Detail

It’s all about those little details, fringing, lace, tassels, embellishment; and the G21 range at George has it all.  This little cami dress with beaded embellishment is perfect for festivals, chilling in the park, partying, a beach/pool cover-up…it’s a beaded all-rounder!  I’ve teamed it with this rather jazzy tassled statement necklace and lace fringed kimono which is the ideal cover-up for summer.

Tranquil

I know I did an entire weeks worth of Festival Style not long ago but I was asked by F&F to style a Festival look using one of their pieces and you can’t get more ‘Festival’ than these amazing embroidered shorts (£12).  So not only are they bang on it with the style but they are quite possibly the best fitting denim shorts I’ve ever had!  They’re not too short, and you know I’m always banging on about ‘booty shorts’ and how I hate them, well these are just perfect!  There’s only really two occasions when you can wear a Kimono and that’s A. on holiday and 2. at a festival, so I’ve gone with an embroidered Kimono to compliment the shorts with a basic tee, gladiator sandals and a fringed bag.  It’s casual cool with the ethnic mix that’s perfect for the laid back festival vibe.

Festival Style: The Brights

I hope you’ve all been enjoying my Festival Style looks this week, we’re almost at the end of the week now but I do still have two looks left to post.  Today’s is all about bright, bold colour so I’ve layered a burnt orange jumper over a bright orange dress and added some electric blue accessories and eye make-up.  To avoid going OTT with colour I toned it down with this monochrome River Island kimono and fringe bag.  Ok so the heeled boots might not be practical for a festival but you could certain work some kind of alternative flat or mid heeled ankle boot with this look.

Boat Trip

On our last day we decided to book one of the excursions that the resort offered to us which was a 3hr catamaran ride to see wild whales and dolphins.  You won’t know this about me but at one point I was dead set on being a Marine Biologist and Whales and Dolphins were my life but I had never seen them in the wild.  I’ve got to say it was absolutely amazing when we saw them and if any of you ever have the chance to do a trip like this I would urge you not to pass it up!  It was the perfect end to our holiday despite the fact that I was sea sick for about 2 of the 3 hours we were on the boat, lol!  It was totally worth it though!  Before heading back to the mooring station the boat stopped at a small bay where you could jump off and swim in the ocean, I didn’t want to as I was on the verge on vomitsville but my other half was like an over excited child diving off the boat, climbing back on and diving again.  Bless his little cottons!  My sea sickness passed as soon as I stepped off the boat (what is the point?!) and we went to get some much needed lunch and then returned to the pool for a last minute tan top up.
