  1. Autumn skies may often be grey.... but grey doesn't have to be dull!

    This month I have put together a set comprising of accessories that will give a cool coastal feel to your autumn wardrobe. The key pieces, we have selected from the KUKShades accessory department, are the gorgeous matching scarf and purse from The Old Bag Company. Polka dots are timeless and the quality of these items mean you will get use out of them from one season to the next.

    When we think of jewellery, a grey colour pallete doesn't always spring to mind, but you may just think again, now you have seen the pieces I've selected to go with our accesories. 

    The beach pebble pendant is from The Strandline, unique and understated and a part of the coast you can keep with you always. The pretty pair of floral earrings are from Pheobe Dreams Jewellery and would go perfectly with the spotty scarf. The leather 'motto' bracelet from Menoyu Jewellery has a real beachy feel to it. It comes in many colours, with different mottos but this metalic grey 'Happiness' option is just right for this set! 

    Of course - grey accessories will go with most things, but I just had to keep it coastal with this anchor top from Question-Air! I love anchors!

    Until next time, Candice x

  2. We all worry about what to pack when we go on holiday. We want to look great, feel comfortable, have something for any occassion and... make sure we can fit it all in the suitcase!

    This month we have created a casual look with key accessories, to take the hassle out of looking good.

    From the KUKShades store we have chosen our best selling beach bag from Bill Brown's basics range. It has the perfect length handles to wear over the shoulder and big enough for a towel, swim suit, flip flops and your summer read. It's made from handloom cotton with jute detail giving an earthy, relaxed feel. It will pack flat in your case too.

    Sunglasses - of course you wouldn't leave home without them, and these cute pastel pink aviators are perfect for an effortless look.

    A tee and shorts are staples of any holiday wardrobe and we think this Summer Lovin' tee from Planet Blue is great fun. It will suit cropped trousers and a denim skirt during the day - and by night - throw over a chunky knit for the barbecue or tailored jacket for a walk into town.  

    The little pumps - I have a pair of these, they are really comfortable and go with everything!! Perfect.

    So there you have it - our take on effortless beach style. We hope you like it.
