Dreamy Summer Destinations

Posted on

It’s that time of year when we all start dreaming about Summer holidays, and wishing we were lying on a deserted beach somewhere when actually, we’re sitting in rainy old Ireland trying to think of a getaway plan! Of course we all want to soak up some sun and feel a little heat on our skin, but for now all we can do is dream and keep pinning away on our Pinterest  dreamy destinations board – if you haven’t checked it out be sure to have a peep, it will give you all the summer feels!  

We’ve compiled a list of our top dreamy summer destinations and some style tips for for the warmer months, so sit back and take five minutes to dream…where would you go?

French Riviera

There is something so glamorous about the idea of a holiday in the South of France. We especially love the typical navy and white stripes which ooze class and elegance. Cannes, Antibes, Juan les Pins and St Tropez are just some of the places we would love to visit.

The Amalfi Coast

This 50 Km stretch of coastline along the Sorrentine Peninsula is listed as a World Heritage site. Rugged cliffs, mountains, terraced vineyards and lemon groves are just some of the sights you will see along the coast. A road trip along the coast would be an ideal way to see many of the coastal towns. Although the turquoise sea and the blue sky dominates, the lemon groves and brightly painted houses add a vibrant splash of colour to the scenery.

The Maldives

When we think of The Maldives we think of paradise… Crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches create an idyllic setting to sit back and relax in. The Maldives are known for the beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs, and the luxury resorts.

Summer Style

We love light knitwear in summer to pull on over dresses or shorts in the evenings when it gets cooler. Choose a staple knit piece for summer which will complement many of your outfits. For cooler days, pairing a sweater with white jeans or pale denims creates a more ‘summery’ look. Pair your sweater or cardigan with a light summer shirt for a chic, on-trend outfit!
