OOTD: Kerkira

New Look crochet top, H&M Shorts, Topshop sandals, Michael Kors bag, Ring from Santorini, Accessorize Rings, Topshop skull bracelet

I wore this to go into Corfu Town for the evening while on vacation it is the perfect outfit for exploring I nearly lived in those Topshop sandals and loved them so much I've been back to get another pair in tan, they are so comfortable for strolling the city. The New Look top was perfect to dress the outfit up a little and the perfect thickness that I wasn't too cold or too hot.

The Reluctant Wanderlust

So if you follow my profile on Bloglovin you will see that a new blog popped up a few weeks ago. I am going off on the adventure of a lifetime to Australia in September and figured setting up a blog to document my adventures would be a good way for me to remember it and for my family and friends to follow them. 

I thought ‘The Reluctant Wanderlust’ was a brilliant name for it really as I have always wanted to travel more but have been reluctant to because society tells you that you need a steady job, get a house and mortgage and settle down to have a family and kids but I have never really wanted that to be my life. The world is a big place and I want to see it.

This will mean this blog gets pushed to the way side really now as I won’t be able to take a great deal of clothing with me but I will probably make sure my outfits feature in the posts occasionally. Hopefully when I get set up with a job I can treat myself to some clothing items by Australian designers! If any Aussies read this please leave me recommendations (brands, designers, places to eat and places to visit, I like to get a feel for the local culture when I can. It doesn’t matter if it’s maybe off the beaten path if I get chance I will try to see it).

If you want you can visit my travel blog here and be sure to follow me on Bloglovin and GFC so you don’t miss a post. I’m always happy to receive comments so come have a chat too if you like.

OOTD: Floral

H&M Dress, Asos sunglasses, Primark belt, Primark shoes, Michael Kors Watch

I'm so glad I discovered this dress the day before I left for Corfu. It is the perfect dress for vacations for both day, night and as a beach cover-up. I wore it at least 3 times while I was there and spotted two other holiday goers with the same dress, though we all styled it differently. Its lightweight too which means it doesn't take up loads of space in my bags (or wardrobe), which is becoming an increasingly important factor to my clothing. Especially since I am going to be taking my traveling one step further soon.

Gouvia, Corfu, Greece

 My hotel was located in Gouvia on the north east coast of Corfu. It was located around a gorgeous inlet which made the water perfect for swimming as they were so calm and a harbour so I could watch the boats come back in the evening from my sun lounger (hard life right?). The village was mainly filled with bars, restaurants and gift shops but the beach at my hotel was the perfect spot to feed the fish and for watching the sunsets turn the clouds orange .

OOTD - Lolalo

Asos backless top, Topshop baxter jeans, Warehouse Clutch, Carvela sandals

I can't believe I haven't posted this yet! I wore this outfit a few weeks back when I went out with Alana from work. We both wanted a chilled night out with no pressure to drink, though that got thrown out the window at about 11pm after a few games of pool. We ended up at Lola Lo's which is actually a really good night out. I think its based on a tropical theme (tiki maybe?) as cocktails are served in novelty glasses, the bar is made to look like its built from bamboo and they scent the air with coconut so you wake up with pleasant smelling hair the next morning.

OOTD: Oh, What A Life

River Island hat, Warehouse blazer, New Look Dress, Asos Over Knee boots. Michael Kors bag

I'm noticing that I'm starting to buy from a wider range of shops now and actually I am loving it. I feel it gives my style a bit more diversity rather than looking like a brand wannabe/obsessive stalker. I've got a busy month this month with a wedding (not mine), hen party, lots of a wedding prep, lots of meetings, work, a night out and visiting someone that I'm not actually sure when i will get time for myself over the next month. I'm hoping to do a couple of trips to London in August though to get some "me" time and meet up with a possible new friend I made over Instagram to explore the Columbia Street Markets which will be amazing as I have wanted to go for a while now. Oh, What a life!

Travel - Corfu Town, Corfu, Greece

 So here is a little visual collection of Corfu Town from my visit the other week. I loved meandering the little streets and taking in the atmosphere which completely changed in the evening from the day. Everything about the town is beautiful from the cobbled streets to the Grecian architecture, the bright florals brightening up street corners and vintage looking mopeds parked on the street. I hope you enjoy the post, its a little photo heavy.
