London Ladies

The streets of London are currently filled with a sea of black umbrellas, winter coats and sneaky puddles. So I’ve pulled together a few shots of well-dressed London ladies from a time when the rain wasn’t quite so relentless and it was safe to don lace midis, faux fur and bare ankles…

Mandy & Nicole

Get Mandy’s look: Celine printed dress (budget option available here), white shirt, black pleated midi skirt, Saint Laurent croc-effect bag (budget alternative here) and Givenchy boots
Get Nicole’s look: Ryan Storer ear cuff, oversized red jumper, dark blue skinny jeans and Charlotte Olympia ‘kiss me’ booties
 

Realising you’ve unintentionally colour-coordinated with one of  your close friends is never a bad thing… Especially when it looks this good. Bold red is not always a hue girls go for, and it’s so good to see Mandy and Nicole embracing it with enthusiasm. Of course their killer accessories aren’t too bad either.

Pandora

Get Pandora’s look: Cream turtleneck (more chunky turtlenecks available here and here), cream asymmetrical skirt, faux fur clutch and suede over the knee boots

Stepping out in cream layers (the slightly more wearable alternative to white on white) always looks so refreshingly minimal. There’s something about Pandora’s outfit which is so simple, lightweight and easy. And those suede over the knee boots are so good – the perfect alternative to tights perhaps?

On Folegandros

I’m going to make a big call and say that out of all the Greek Islands we visited (Mykonos, Santorini and Crete), Folegandros was the most special. Our timing couldn’t have been better – we arrived in the last week of May when the sun was out in full force but the hoards of tourists had yet to arrive.

What makes Folegandros so incredible is the rocky cliff-faces and untouched beaches which are only accessible by boat. Not to mention the sea was impossibly clear; like swimming in a salt water pool. The island is pretty small, so you can pretty much just turn up and discover it for yourself… But just incase you are planning a visit these a few of my favourite spots.

Stay: Anemomilos Apartments is perched right on the cliffs edge with insane views of the turquoise waters below.

Eat: Eva’s Garden offers up Greek dishes with a modern twist in the most idyllic garden courtyard you could imagine. Think freshly prepared food, wild bougainvillea and beautiful table settings.

Do: The full day boat trip. Of all the islands we visited this trip was both the most affordable and least-touristy. Most of the beaches are only accessible by boat, so this day trip (which you can book in the town centre) is the perfect way to explore these beautifully untouched locations.
