Ciao bella! Get to know Sinead Crowe – fashion blogger and vlogger from Love Style Mindfulness – and sneak a peek at her sightseeing style from her recent city break to Rome. Insta dreams are made of these…

Tell us about your holiday destination…

Rome – I can’t wait to visit! I’ve been before with my boyfriend and done all the sights but this time I’m going with my sister and it’s going to be a whole new experience!

What are you most looking forward to about the trip?

I’m looking forward to Gucci, Valentino, Louis Vuitton! No but seriously I can’t wait to shop and drink wine, eat pasta… basically the food!

What are your go-to Accessorize pieces for your pack list and why?

A Bardot dress is the ultimate go-to piece for any holiday – not only because its light and comfy but because I don’t have to wear a bra with it. It also goes with anything because,  like, hello, you’ve got to think about those Insta pics and nothing looks better than a classic white dress!

Camilla Off Shoulder Top, £25 | Double Bridge Round Sunglasses, £15 | Bobble Shopper Bag, £29 | Gracie Strappy Sandals, £25

My other essential is my beach bag which has actually just turned into my regular handbag because I’ve become so attached to it. Again it’s neutral and goes with anything plus it’s so big I can fill it up with a spare pair of comfy shoes, my phone charger, a bottle of water… all of the holiday essentials!

Island Life 2017: Exclusive Festival Highlights

Festival season: it’s on. Get #InTheMoment with an exclusive first look at Island Life – this summer’s first festival straight from Osea Island, just off the coast of Essex (say what?!). From the hottest new headliners (oh hey, Sigrid!) and festival fashion trends to all the fun in the sun, here are our highlights from one of the coolest dates on the 2017 agenda.

Get #InTheMoment at Island Life


The Vibe

Pool parties, sunshine vibes and more inflatables than we could count: Island Life had us dosed up on those ultimate summer feels. We started the day chilling out with some of our favourite babes – including Tasha Green, Lina Mar, Heather Moorhouse, Zoe London and Rady – before we went full-on festival with Island Life’s hottest happenings.

After making a cheeky ‘lil pit-stop at our yurt (glamping at its finest), we joined the rest of the gang for a whole host of summer LOLs – we’re talking rounders, bike rides and tennis tournaments with Sean Paul (not even joking). Burgers, jerk chicken and cocktail ice lollies made up our festival eats, snacked on in the sunshine and around the late-night bonfire.


The Style

The festival fash pack were out in full force for Island Life, giving us a sneak peek of the most mega trends of summer ’17. We were vibin’ over vlogger queens Tasha Green and Lina Mar in their boho-luxe get-ups (all Accessorize, FYI), while Leanne Walker gave us life with her swish shades and Insta-worthy unicorn hair. Mercedes Benson, AJ Odudu and Alya Mooro also popped over to say hey, and soon had us obsessed with their sequin bags, cut-off denim and glam gold jewels. We also chatted all things style with with Island Life headliner and bright young thing Sigrid – trust us, this girl’s gonna be huge.

The Tunes

As the sun went down, Osea Island turned up the volume. Sigrid, the freshest new singer-songwriter on the scene, took to the stage with the most-hyped tracks from her latest EP (Don’t Kill My Vibe = such a tune), followed closely by the dreamy tempos of alt-pop duo Oh Wonder and Brit boy Joe Fox. When day turned to night, a whole lotta magic happened inside The Factory – a disused, industrial-style barn that made the best backdrop for all those festival selfies. Sean Paul brought the house down with his dutty beats, before the crowd got down to the sounds of Angel, Bossman Birdie, Fekky and Donae’O. Too good.

The Travelista: Italy Style Diary

Just booked your summer vacay and can’t stop buying holiday outfits? We feel you. For an extra hit of #OOTD inspo, we asked award-winning blogger Jess Gibson from The Travelista to show us how she styled out her most recent sun-kissed break to Puglia in Italy. Warning: may contain serious levels of wanderlust.

Tahiti Triangle Bikini Top, £17 | Ciara Embroidered Shorts, £32 Verona Plaited Sandals, £25

My latest adventure took me to a lesser-known corner of Italy called Puglia. Located on the south coast of the country, this region is known for its incredible food, rustic farmhouses, olive trees and beautiful beaches. As with the rest of Italy, Puglia oozes timeless style so with the help of Accessorize, I managed to curate the perfect Italian wardrobe for my trip.

Joined by my friend Katie, the plan was to combine days of relaxation by the pool with sightseeing in the local towns. With endless kilometres of pristine beaches and picturesque towns, Puglia is the perfect destination for this type of holiday. We hired a car and were excited about the prospect of our mini road trips. Here’s what I got up to on my stylish Italian adventure.


Day 1 – Poolside at Canne Bianche

Mia Catmaster Sunglasses, £15 | High Neck Plunge Swimsuit, £32

After arriving to glorious blue skies and sunshine, day one was all about relaxing by the pool and making the most of our hotel. Canne Bianche Lifestyle Hotel was located right on the beach with an incredibly chic pool that you could spend all day relaxing by. It felt so good to stretch out and feel the sun on my skin. I wore my high-neck plunge swimsuit in white as I thought it was perfectly in keeping with the stylish surroundings. The cut of this swimsuit reminded me of Marylin Monroe’s iconic dress and I felt really confident in it around the pool. I paired the white swimsuit with my this cute pom-pom kaftan which was incredibly flattering and comfortable to wear.

Panama Woven Hat, £15 | Mina Pom Pom Kaftan, £32 | Beach Please Crochet Tote, £35


Day 2 – Exploring Ostuni

Day two was all about exploring! We hopped in our hire in search of Ostuni, the iconic whitewashed town of Puglia. It was the perfect town for strolling around in the sunshine with a gelato in hand. We got lost amongst the pretty backstreets and made the climb up to the cathedral. The view from the top was spectacular, with panoramic views of the ocean and an expanse of olive trees. There were beautiful boutique shops selling everything from fresh pasta and olive oil to sandals. It’s a great place to pick up some souvenirs.

Panama Woven Hat, £15 | Verona Plaited Sandals, £25 | Nora Backpack, £25

I wanted to be comfortable on our day of exploring and not get caught out by too much sun, so I paired a long black wrap dress with this cool Panama hat. I knew I’d need my hands free to take lots of photos, so I finished the look with my trusty black backpack.

Day 3 – Combining Monopoli and Alberobello

Panama Woven Hat, £15 | Mia Catmaster Sunglasses, £15

Discovering Ostuni gave us the hunger to find more pretty Puglian towns, so we set off to Monopoli on day three. Monopoli is one of the largest towns in Puglia and is home to an old town, a castle and a cathedral. The old town, otherwise known as the historical centre, is full of history and timeless charm.

Tilly Embroidered Tunic, £35

After a few hours exploring Monopoli, we drove for a further 40 minutes to reach the small town of Alberobello which is famous for it’s pretty Truli Houses. The circular houses with slated cone roofs look like something out of a fairy-tale and it’s amazing to think these Truli Houses were once individual homes. We stopped for a delicious toasted panini and (another!) gelato.

Day 4 – An Italian cooking class and relaxation

Mia Catmaster Sunglasses, £15 | Ikat Print Swimsuit, £32 | Mer-Mazing Bikini Bag, £10

After some fun-filled days of exploring, we we’re ready for some R&R again at our new hotel, Masseria Monteapoleone. This incredible boutique hotel is a restored 17th century farmhouse with just 21 rooms. There’s also a beautiful pool area, which we just had to spend some time in. In the morning, I slipped into this ikat-print swimsuit and couldn’t wait to find the perfect poolside sunbed.

Before we left, we also had time to take part in Masseria Montenapoleone’s Italian cooking class, where we learnt to make focaccia bread and fresh pasta without eggs. It was fascinating to watch the demonstrations and great fun getting to try our hand at the pasta curling technique. The best bit was getting to try our creations at the end washed down with a cool glass of white wine. It’s an experience I will remember for a long time.

Italy continues to have a special place in my heart and visiting Puglia added another piece to the puzzle of this beautiful, passionate and captivating country.

Tell us about your next holiday destination…

I’ve just got back from Barcelona which was great – it’s got the perfect mix of city and beach life. I’m off to Lisbon next which should be lovely. It’s somewhere that’s been on my bucket list for a while now so I can’t wait to finally visit.


What are you looking forward to most about the trip?

Everything! The food in particular I’ve heard is amazing. I live in Scotland so it’ll be nice to escape the cold and feel some sun on my bones as well.

What is your ultimate summer track?

There are too many to name! Paolo Nutini is a long-term love of mine so I’d have to say him, and I’ve also recently discovered Leon Bridges who I love. In terms of ultimate summer soundtrack though… I’d say it’s got to be a bit of Bob Marley.


Livvy Round Metal Sunglasses, £12 | Zig Zag Fabric Choker, £8 | Tropical Sequin Cross Body Bag, £35 | Catherine Wedge Tie Espadrilles, £35


What are your go-to Accessorize pieces for your pack list and why?

I LOVE this choker – it’s so different to anything else I’ve seen on the high street and it’s great for adding a bit of a pop to an outfit. Plus, you can’t go wrong with black and white!

Zig Zag Fabric Choker, £8 | Catherine Wedge Tie Espadrilles, £35

Two Tone Marl Fedora Hat, £25 | Embellished Stripe Bikini Top, £22 | Livvy Round Metal Sunglasses, £12 | Retro Silk Scarf, £14

I’m a sunglasses fiend and these are my go-to pair right now. The shape is so flattering on and the blue tinted lenses makes them stand out a bit from your usual styles.

The Bloggers’ Guide To The White-On-White Trend

Nothing says summer vacay quite like white-on-white, and this year we’re diving headfirst into the must-have holiday trend of SS17. Want a slice of the action? Check out how to wear white from head to toe with a little inspo from fashion bloggers Chloe Plumstead and Hannah Gale. Maximum Insta points await.

Beach Please!

Hannah Gale wears: Two Tone Chic Fedora, £20 | Louisa Off The Shoulder Dress, £35 | Wanderlust Bag, £22 |  Chrissy Plaited Sandal, £25. Right: Crochet Top Maxi Dress, £39 | Plunge Swimsuit, £32 | Broderie Bikini Top, £17 | Broderie Bikini Bottoms, £16

Wanna wow at the beach? Make like mega babe Hannah and rock a swishy little white dress (off the shoulder styles = so SS17), or slip into a flowy crochet maxi for Grecian goddess vibes. Step it up with an all-white swimsuit or bikini to show off that golden glow to absolute perfection.  Dreamy.


Raise The Bar

Hannah Gale wears: Double Bridge Round Sunglasses, £15 | Tamsin Kaftan, £35 | Wanderlust Bag, £22 |  Chrissy Plaited Sandal, £25. Chloe Plumstead wears: Metal Cateye Sunglasses, £12 | Embroidered Beach Shirt, £27 | Jaipur Mirror Across Body Bag, £25 | Gracie Strappy Sandals, £25

Whether you’re having a lazy lunch or checking out the views with an ice-cold drink, a crisp white cover-up is your beach-to-bar BFF. Throw on a simple shirt dress like our Insta-style crush Chloe, or follow Hannah’s colour cue with pink-on-white embroideries.


Head To Toe

Left: Two Tone Chic Fedora, £20 | Chrissy Plaited Sandal, £25 | Double Bridge Round Sunglasses, £15 | Capri Filigree Tassel Earrings, £8. Right: Packable Fedora, £18 | Stripe Brim Floppy, £25 | Livvie Strappy Sandals, £15 | Crochet Espadrille Wedges, £35

The secret to wearing white without looking OTT? Neutral-hued accessories. Think straw hats and sandals in pared-back palettes of tan and nude, injecting a dose of sun-kissed sparkle with luxe gold metallics.


Sun Dressed

Chloe Plumstead wears: Metal Cateye Sunglasses, £12 | Giselle Crochet Beach Dress, £35 | Francesca Cross Strap Sandals, £29. Right: Embroidered Beach Shirt, £27 | Jaipur Mirror Across Body Bag, £25 | Gracie Strappy Sandals, £25

Because a girl can never pack too many dresses, right? Turn your holiday wardrobe into a total white-out with sun-bleached dresses to wear from poolside to party – we love how Chloe has styled hers with tonal tan extras.


Bag It Up

Left: Tamsin Kaftan, £35 | Wanderlust Bag, £22 |  Chrissy Plaited Sandal, £25. Right: Jaipur Mirror Across Body Bag, £25 | Beaded Duffle Bag, £29 | Beach Please Crochet Tote, £35 | Bobble Bag, £29

When it comes picking a beach bag for that all-white holiday get-up, natural shades are the way to go. Get your hands on a slogan tote that’s roomy enough for all those vacay essentials, or hit the town in duffel bags and across-body styles to throw on and go.

Cat-eye shades always make me feel glam on the beach and these are big enough to provide good sun protection.
