Ella Gregory Next Summer 2016 Collection

Okay, so technically these photos could have been taken anywhere in the world because the backdrop is completely indistinguishable. But I assure you they were shot on the Spanish island of Menorca, where I’m currently holidaying with Monica from The Elgin Avenue. And, actually, there is something so uniquely flattering about the light here that these photos would be hard to replicate elsewhere. The sun really is the best selfie light a girl can have…

True to form, my suitcase if full or natural tones as I can’t resist a bit of khaki. This outfit is from the Next summer 2016 collection, and is typical of what I’d wear for a day exploring the local markets. I’m particularly smitten with the linen shorts which are so cool and comfy, and I’ll be wearing the Aquazzura-esque leopard print flats on repeat all season. They’re just so insanely beautiful!
