I'm back from my hols but not quite back to reality. As yesterday was my birthday and I spent most of the day in either a plane, a car, or a traffic jam (!) I'm celebrating today with a Jubilee buffet and drinks at the pub. But I thought I'd get up early to write this post and show you all some of my holiday snaps.
I had an amazing week, and can't recommend Corsica enough, especially if you want to go somewhere that hasn't yet been targeted by Brits aboard, no McDonalds, no Starbucks and no street full of bars with free fishbowls!! The weather was perfect, and the beaches are really beautiful. So, apologies in advance but it's going to be a pretty heavy picture post!
Firstly, a few holiday shots to give you a sneak peek into my week away:
Couldn't resist putting a couple of my boy in as he usually doesn't get a look in on this blog!!
Corsica is a mix of mountains, forest, beaches and harbours, with great food (look at that pudding!) and lovely people, although they don't speak much English so if you're thinking of going make sure you take a phrase book with you.
And now for a couple of outfit shots, I didn't manage to get photos from every outfit but thought these few would do :)
This top was an early birthday present, I'd seen it in the shop a few times but wasn't sure about it as it was cropped, so when I opened it I figured I just wear it with another vest underneath. But when I was on holiday I realised that if I teamed it with a high waisted skirt I wouldn't need to wear it with anything else, and voila!
Another early birthday present from the parents (I was allowed to open them early so I could take them on holiday!), this skirt is from Topshop and I was really unsure about it when I opened it, but it's really grown on me. And how on trend is my mum? Pastels, pleats AND asymmetric, I think she knows more about fashion than me!!
You'll notice I'm wearing my new heels from Office that I mentioned here and honestly they are the comfiest heels I have ever owned! I wore them one evening when we walked for about 40 mins and my feet were fine - amazeballs!
1. Dress - Warehouse
And last but not least, the maxi dress. I wore this on our final evening out and for what was technically my birthday meal. We went to a restaurant with an English chef who had a Michelin star when he worked over here. It was only 30 Euros for a three course meal, and probably the best (poshest!) food I have ever eaten.
This dress was bought in the Warehouse sale last Summer for a friends wedding and this was only the second time I'd had chance to wear it. I love how glam you feel in a maxi dress and this one is no exception. I wore it with the Office heels (again!) and it was a perfect outfit for the end of my hol.
So there you go! That's my holiday in a nutshell, I hope it wasn't too boring for you! If you want to know anything more about my holiday let me know, or if you're thinking about heading to Corsica then I can definitely make some recommendations.
And I still have two days off work!! What are you plans for the long bank holiday?
