Oh So Blue in CORFU


Hello everyone! 

In half term I went to Corfu for a week with my family and of course I had to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and do some 'on shoot' blog posts. It was really lovely to get a break from college work and in general get away from the UK. I find the Greek Islands so relaxing and the water in Corfu is so incredibly beautiful. I know I'm not ridiculously tanned but I swear I have caught the sun a bit. And I have said GOODBYE to my foundation, BB or CC cream anything like that for my face! I feel like the sun has improved my skin so much which has really made me happy as I don't like constantly feeling that I need to wear make up to be society's version of 'beautiful'. 

I have a new camera and this is the first blog post I have done. I bought the Canon EOS 70D so Corfu was me experimenting with it and falling in love with it's quality. What do you think of the quality of these photos, do you have any tips for exploring canon camera functions?




When Chi Chi sent me this skirt through Etail PR I was over the moon of course. I'm not actually a massive fan of wearing blue but I do love cobalt blue at the minute. The shape of this skirt gives it such an impact, I found styling this outfit soooo much fun and I definitely wanted to create a 'princess-like' feel to this outfit... 21st century princess. 

I think the best thing about this outfit is that it is so versatile. Don't get me wrong it is out there and 'in your face', but it has a sense of sophistication to it all the same. This outfit would be perfect for a wedding, big event in the summer, holiday outfit or even just a summer BBQ depending on how confident you are in your clothing choices. I guess for me I've been trying to push my comfort zone more and being 5ft3 last year I wouldn't have dreamt of wearing a midi skirt, but it is by far my favourite outfit I've ever styled on my blog. 

Chi Chi have such beautiful items on their site and I always find myself strolling through them falling in love with them all! I would definitely recommend if you are looking for some new clothes to have a look on their site as their items are breath taking. They're definitely a brand after my own heart with classic statement clothing pieces and they're ALSO situated in London which is where I am moving soon... Eek. 



These platforms are my absolute muse. They were a complete bargain from primark for £10. I love the colour and I came across them by accident, I was actually looking for white/cream shoes to go with this outfit but when I saw these I was just like... YES! They're ridiculously comfy and give me height without a intense incline. They also have these in cream and coral. I think you could wear them with dresses, skirts and jeans, they're not limited. 





Me and my friend Emma were trailing shops to try and find a top which would go with this skirt. It didn't really help that I didn't actually 100% know what I was looking for, but when she showed me this one I was like FINALLY! Originally I tried on a size 6 and was close to panic because the hanger had said size 10, but we had a right old laugh about it and I eventually bought the size 10. Bralets like this are so useful for the summer, especially if they are neutral colours as they go with anything! I definitely recommend purchasing one if you haven't already got one in your wardrobe. TopShop have tonnes of them but If you're after something cheaper you could have a stroll through Asos.

Bralet: TopShop £16

  4. Corfu is one of my most favourite places. It's so pretty and lush green! But what's great about this outfit is it's the white and blue which is synonymous with Greece! I bet you fit right in. I love a good full skirt!
