The Little Red Skirt | OOTD

H&M CROP TOP

---

Here's a very overdue OOTD from my holiday in Corfu this Summer. I know that Summer is well and truly over but I just couldn't let it completely slip without posting this outfit - I love it so much! And plus I know that there are still a lot of lucky ladies jetting off to sunnier climates. 
I've had this skirt for so long now and it's my go-to, comfy, trusty item that goes with everything and flatters my figure so much. It's such amazing quality and is a gorgeous vibrant colour (these pictures just aren't doing it the justice it deserves), and I just can't believe that it's actually in the H&M sale for £10! Crazy! 
I wore this outfit to do some shopping and get some cocktails in Corfu Town. I kept it really simple with this gorgeous white blouse, my beautiful Whistles clutch and some nude heels, which are sooo comfy so perfect for lots of walking!

Who's looking forward to Autumn?
I was dreading it but after seeing all the new fashion pieces in stores I'm actually looking forward to wrapping up and piling on the layers!
I'm trying not to go too mad in H&M at the minute... ;-)

Corfu // Summer 2014

Well this post is extremely late, but better late than never! I thought I'd share some of the photographs I took from my holiday in Corfu in July. If you've been following my (rare) posts for the last couple of years then you'll already know that I actually went to Corfu in 2012, but we loved it so much that we had to go back and do some more exploring! It was every part as beautiful as it was the first time and we fell in love all over again...

We stayed at a hotel in Kanoni called Corfu Holiday Palace and our view was so beautiful. The hotel actually had their own private beach that you could only access from the hotel, with an amazing glass lift that took you right down the mountain onto the beach itself!



One of Corfu's many stunning monasteries, right on the beach of our hotel

We found a bakery that sold donuts the size of my face! I was in my element!

On our 2nd day we had the most delicious salads at one of the restaurants along the Liston Promenade. It was full of dried fig, raisins and parmesan cheese


My holiday read was 'Not That Kind of Girl' by Catherine Alliott



Of course we had to take a little trip back to Paleokastritsa, which is where we stayed on our first visit. It is the most magical part of the whole island and holds so many lovely memories for me. It was as gorgeous as I remembered!


My view at breakfast every morning was so stunning and one of my favourite parts of each day. And literally my favourite thing in the whole world is a good hotel breakfast, and our hotels food was sooo beyond delicious! I totally indulged and had about 3 breakfasts everyday. 


In the evenings we got ourselves dressed up and drove into Corfu Town for some shopping, drinks and a little strole. I found an amazing little boutique called Suite51 and bought myself the cutest pink skirt




We found the coolest cocktail bar of the whole island (in our opinion!) in Corfu Town, called Bristol. The decor was incredible, they played really good music, the locals were dressed impeccably and the cocktails were the best! They had some really unusual mixtures, my favourite was called Coconut Dreams



We rented out a car for the whole ten days and traveled to most beaches and tourist-y museums. We love being cheesy tourists, learning about the history and culture of Corfu! And a lot of the beaches were so gorgeous with some amazing restaurants



We found the loveliest secluded little bay where we were only 2 of a few people sunbathing! We spent a couple of days here as it was so relaxing and quite. It was a really nice place to chill and reflect on everything





Our pretty hotel and the amazing buffet dinner! I love having such a huge selection of delicious food and being able to try it all




We tried this traditional Greek treat that was covered in sesame seeds and honey. It was very yummy!





More cocktails and card games at our favourite cocktail bar






We spent our last couple of days visiting museums, drinking many frappes and soaking up as much sun as we could!

We've made a pact with each other that we won't be revisiting Corfu again for at least 5 years as we need to branch out and see more of the world, but we just love it so much! I definitely recommend visiting Corfu, and visiting Paleokastritsa is an absolute must.

We had a beautiful holiday and I'm so grateful to be able to make such precious memories <3
