Hey guys! I hope you are all having a great week so far! As I type I am holed up indoors, listening to the gentle percussion of rain after a humid morning in Menorca. I rarely take the time to just sit, listen and read (other than on the weekend, when I am all about R&R) and I am feeling especially indulgent wrapped up in my new favourite lounge wear – my cobalt blue printed Oasis Kimono.
Oasis have teamed up with the Victoria & Albert museum, one of my very favourite places in London/the world(!), to produce a beautiful collection of printed pieces featuring the museum’s iconic prints archive reimagined in modern silhouettes.
I am head over heels for the cobalt shade of this Kimono, it is the perfect coverup for our holiday, but I love it with jeans, a white shirt and flats too.

Yesterday Oli, myself and our friends Chris and Martha, headed to a local bar, and spent the evening playing cards (or rather, I was learning to play!) and talking the night away.
The evening was warm, but a little cloudy following a temperamental day, so I opted to pair my new Oasis printed trousers with the matching crop top. I love that it almost looks like a jumpsuit when worn together, but the items are easily worn separately too.
The pastel print is elegant enough to be dressed up for an occasion, it would look so lovely worn with heels, an up do, and an embellished clutch.
It is so lovely to be sharing such a special island, Menorca, which Oli and I know so well, with new friends – you see it all through fresh eyes. Stay in touch with our day to day adventures on Instagram.
You can shop the whole Oasis x V&A collection here. If you purchase an item (which I know is almost impossible to resist!) you can take a snap of yourself wearing it and tag @OasisFashion on Instagram, and use #MyLifeInPrint to be in with a chance of winning the WHOLE collection. Now that would be a good prize!
Are you guys as excited about this collaboration as I am? Do you have your eye on any of the beautiful pieces in particular?
Love, Monica x
