Best of British

The weather may not always be fabulous and the coasts may not always be lined with crystal clear waters but I'm going to put it out there and say that some of the best holidays I've had have been in the UK. I was compiling a post dedicated to global holiday fashion when I decided to focus solely on Blighty. I'm the first to admit it's not a comprehensive style guide but I hope this helps, seeing as more and more of us Brits are enjoying a staycation!


The Look: Uptown girl. It's all about classic luxe with an undone twist.
