Tied up with a Bow...

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

These photos shouldve been up this morning, but I lost my glasses and spent half the morning blurry eyed running round trying to find them so I could drive to work..but hey better late than never!
These photos where taken a week or so ago when Dave & I were up at the coast. The weather was great and by great I mean it didnt rain and the sun was shining but it was still freezing and insanely windy..hence outta control matted hair in most of these photos!
I wore this belt in a blog post last summer & it got such a great response that I kept meaning to wear it again but its so broad and so very 'baby pink' that its hard to team up with things..Im going to make a real effort to try and wear it loads this summer.

Cardigan: c/o Matalan, Belt: Asos, Skirt: Primark, Necklace: Tatty Devine,
Tights and wedges: M&S, Gold deco ring: Asos. Gold band: my granny Betty's.

Me & dave are planning on trawling round the travel agents at the weekend to look at summer holiday deals.. we wanna go somewhere we have never been.. Does anyone have any suggestions of where is good to go?
Off the top of my head im thinking either Malta or Barcelona..
but im easy as long as its warm, has a beach and some culture :)

  19. Turkey! there's tons of culture (my bf&I saw one of the 7 ancient wonders of the world, ephesus, last summer), tons of sun and fab beaches, lots of partying (if you're into that sort of thing, if not just don't go to those areas, we didn't), lots of fab jewellry markets, and if you stay on the coast its a short boat ride to greece as well :) also if you go I can't recommend a turkish bath enough. Most. Relaxing. Thing. Ever!

  47. I would suggest Venice but it's not especially warm now... for summer though it will be lovely! I've just come back from a 4 day jaunt with my boyf there and there is nowhere more romantic in the world :) jazzy ♥

  48. Oh what a glorious mixture of things! I love all the details - the sleeve inserts, the belt, the pretty tights...all perfect.

    Barcelona is fab but I'm recommending Dubrovnik to everyone at the moment - I went last autumn and it is absolutely gorgeous. We spent a couple of days sunbathing on a little island just outside the harbour - bliss.

  59. Your hair looks lovely in this post! The sun has really brought out all the orange/red tones in it. Also loving the whole outfit especially the skirt and wedges.
    We've been to Malta and it was lovely, would highly recommend it. Valletta was beautiful, lots to see. We stayed in Sliema (hopefully spelt right) which wasn't far. The buses are cheap (and retro!) or you can get a boat ride to see other parts!xxx

  64. These are the sweetest pics. Love the boots shot!
    Re your hols, i'd say don't pick malta. I for one was bored silly after a few days, but maybe that's just me. Barca rocks, you could a few days there and then move to a beach. Perfect!
