Back to Basics!

Featured

Right, so I’m a woman on a mission to revamp my wardrobe! Wear do I start? Well, quite frankly, I think I want to go back to the very basics. After a long week of working I find myself waking up on a Saturday morning not quite knowing what to piece together, and it all goes back to key staples/pieces.. or in my case, lack of!

I feel like I need to take some time to incorporate fresh cami’s, blazers, jeans, and tailored trousers. These make putting an outfit together so much easier. No thought needed and oozes effortlessly chic. I’ve chosen one from each so hopefully it will help all you ladies too if you are stuck in this rut also.

Flares scream Flair! 

Featured

Welcome back! I know it’s been a hot minute since I pushed out my last blog post but the Summer shenanigans have been in full swing. Along with BBQ’S, weddings, family get-togethers and parties, comes the long awaited summer fashion. And this is it.. I’ve fallen back in love with jumpsuits!!
If you’d asked me two years back;

“What kind of jumpsuits??” I’d of answered with “the tailored peg leg type”. Completely sleek cut with no wide leg in sight. But I seem to have just hit a daring corner lately and I’m throwing myself further into the experimenting world of fashion.

I’ve just recently purchased the gorgeous black flowy jumpsuit above, from trusty ASOS Petite, and I’m in love! It’s airy, it’s comfortable, it’s effortlessly chic, and looks a lot more expensive than the price tag! At just £22.50 it was a true steal. The subtle bell sleeves and the gorgeous flared legs scream elegance. I paired it with a black bag with gold hardware and emerald detailing, and a pair of “Chanel-esque” block heels. Such a classic look. Perfect for any summer occasion with the ability to dress up or down.

So that’s it. I’m sold! Go grab those flares and a pair of heels ladies!

SS17 Bible: Floral & Frills

Featured

BIG bold floral prints, frills, sequins, metallics, fringing, and tailoring are so on trend this season and I am absolutely loving it! I must admit, I can be a little stuck in my ways when it comes to fashion. Opting for darker colours and safer cuts, however I seem to be feeling so daring this season and I really think that it’s down to all the beautiful seasonal trends out this 2017.

To give you a little idea of my style, the women I bow down to in fashion are Victoria Beckham, Olivia Palermo and Kate Middleton (and a bit of Mille Mackintosh). To me, they are all women that scream elegance and class. I do appreciate a bit of edge and sex appeal that the Kardashian/Jenner family throw out there, but I think being able to nail simplicity within fashion oozes more of an intricate talent.

So if your style icons match the above then take a look at some of the pieces I’ve picked out for you so that you’ll be on trend this season:

This gorgeous Karen Millen is one that I could TOTALLY see VB sporting, and I’m sure she would slay it with an oversized white shirt, super long sleeves peeking out from underneath the sleeves of the blazer, unbuttoned and skimming right over her hands… with a sassy pair of heels of course!

 

FRILLS

I LOVE the above. Frills are so on trend this season and there are so many dupes for this on the high street for a lot cheaper, but I must say, this one from Self Portrait has frills in all the right places! The cut is fantastic, and personally I think there is nothing sexier than baring some glossy sun kissed shoulders in the Summer!

 

FLORAL

What a stunning elegant floral piece! I love the fluted sleeves which is so on trend right now. I think it’s definitely one of those pieces that looks better on the body than on a hanger. Perfect for a summer evening do!
