Wish I was here...

Ahhhh... How gorgeous is that?! Santorini in Greece is somewhere I would love to go. I love the stunning white, blue-domed-topped buildings and that amazing deep blue sea. Bliss.
Instead, I'm stuck in Yorkshire. Now don't get me wrong I love my home county, but when everyone else is jetting off to exotic and exciting places it does get kinda depressing being stuck at home. But hey, a girl can dream! So this is a bit of an 'escapist' post for me, the fashion I'd wear if I was a glamorous globetrotter! (I've also found a few high street items for budget not-so-glamorous me, sigh!).

I love the floppy hats that are everywhere at the moment (as seen big and bold on the Prada catwalk). I also like the idea of just casually throwing a light knit over a bikini, it looks very chic I think!

Gorgeous. I love the beautiful shade of blue used in the outfits above, and when combined with the white... Stunning!! (And dontcha think I'd coordinate with the landscape of Santorini?). Top the look off with gold cuffs and bangles and a pair of gold strappy sandals and voila! A glamorous chic holiday look. (FYI, the photos used were featured in Vogue Paris editorial 'Paradis Bleu' photographed by  Cedric Buchet). 

Diane Von Furstenberg's Resort 2011 collection had some great looks for a holiday. I love the retro feel of the stripy bikini teamed with dark denim shorts and the knotted shirt with patterned shorts. And I want need the abstract print shirt that is teamed with a gorgeous white swimsuit. Hot pink lips, beachy waves and highlights finish off the look.

Missoni Spring 2011 Ready-To-Wear

Some lovely prints from Etro and Missoni that would look gorgeous in the hot sun.

These photos from Elle Mexico's July's issue are beautiful! I love the bright colours used and the luxurious look of the outfits. The ethnic and tribal hints just make it all the more gorgeous! Love love love!!

Oh and going back to my dream holiday, fantasy Me is dating David Gandy (yes I know he's going out with Mollie from The Saturdays but don't ruin my dream!). So yeh, this is what I'm holidaying with.. (I wish!!).
