Travel diaries – Lady in Red

The colour red is such a bold and statement colour. I think it requires lots of confidence to wear because you will most definitely get lots of stares.

I normally have my unbothered hat on while on holiday. My motto is that I will be gone in a few weeks or days so “what the heck!”

Before I share my outfit, I just wanted to show off my makeup skills.😜.
I have literally just touched down and everything is already glowing.Β  This natural sun light is great for selfies but also used the Live Love make up bronze palette.

This gorgeous off the shoulder maxi dress was take from my mother’s closet. I loved it at first sight and just had to have it. The colour is very eye catching. It’s totally on tend and the thin straps mean you don’t have to worry about the dress rolling off your shoulders.

The frills on this dress is very flattering and great for hiding my problem areas

image

I decided to tie a knot on the hem of this dress because it’s not quiet the right length for my tall frame. But when I like am item, IΒ  go for it and just make it work.
I believe am working it! Hopefully it’s not too obvious either πŸ˜†.

Airport outfit styles

Happy new month and welcome to June. I am still stunned at how quickly we have come to midway through the year. June can be regarded as the official beginning of the summer ( well… at least in my mind it is). With the summer comes holidays and travel plans.
And here we are … discussing airport fashion.

What type of flyer are you?Β  Are you part of the glam squad with your high heels and 4 wheeled cases ? Or are you a fashion forward first class flyer. Maybe your more of a tailored and polished traveller.

I have definitely noticed a change in my airport fashion. More and more , I have decided to put comfort at the fore front of my dressing. While I have no issues with flying, it’s a no brainer that being comfort can and will make the flying experience more enjoyable and it will put you at ease.

I recently wore the Tall Lara Space Dye Lounge Top & Jogger Set from Boohoo. I was thrilled to learn that Boohoo stock a Tall range. I was even more pleased when the items fit well.

This outfit was perfect for all the airport hassle. Stomping up and down the escalators, bending and lifting suitcases .
I even relatively comfortable while slightly squashed in my economy seat.
Matching sets a great for that trendy sporty luxe look. Pair with trainers or plimsolls for that athleisure finish.

Happy holidaying. Feel free to let me know what your ultimate airport outfit would be.
In the mean time… here’s mine.

Spring 2016 Must haves-Pyjamas inspired day wear (p/t3)

So…. for the final look I added the ever classicΒ  sleeveless longline jacket.
This is every girls must have and can totally be dressed up or dressed down.

The nude colour adds a soft touch and it gives a very modern yet chic finish to the look.

image

Wide leg trousers are totally trending this season. The timing couldn’t have been more purrrrfect.Β  As the weather warms up its very refreshing to have light weight, free fabrics that do not stick to your body (thighs).

Spring 2016 Must haves-Pyjamas inspired day wear (p/t2)

Feeling less adventurous?
Why not break up the pyjamas inspired sets for an equally fabulously trendy look.

I ditched the wide leg trouser for a moment and opted for a pleated skirt.
The colour of this skirt is very fresh an brightens up the look.
As you can see no movement is lost with this skirt.

Ofcourse we had fun with this shot. Fighting mother nature as I hold down my hat, while keeping my bag in place and trying to strut my stuff in the middle of looking cute. πŸ˜“πŸ™

Anyway… I have a final take on this trend coming soon. Stay tuned.
Hope you liked this look.

Spring 2016 must haves -Front slit skirt

This trend screams SEXY SPRING

Skirts are uber feminine and when you add some “thighage” you get a very sexy feminine look. This is season to flaunt your pins ladies!

I was a little worried about showing too much thick’em πŸ—πŸ—. So I opted for a mini slit rather than a high slit skirt.

Here is how I have been wearing my front slit shirts.
PS: the slit doesn’t have to be a centre slit. Side slits are just as trendyπŸ‘

Here are a few that I’m absolutely loving. (On my wants list).

I love the print on this Michael Kors Cube print silk scarf skirt.

Why not to pack away your summer clothes in the winter

Hey guys … lets talk.

image

Aside from being 50% busy and 50% lazy, IΒ  do not always get the chance to pack away my summer clothing at the end of the season.

I now make my schedule and lasiness work for me.
I have worn my summer clothing in the winter by layer them up and it means I can get more wear out if the clothing.
This trick works wonderfully with cropped tops.

I wear it over dresses , with high waisted trousers, over shirts and here I teamed it perfectly with a denim shirt.

Travel diaries – Humidity is real -natural hair problems.

The biggest error was thinking I could takeΒ  my blog pictures at the end of the day. The humidity out here dealt with me.Β  Look at my hair. The fizz got the best of it.
However, I still wanted to capture.

Pretend you can’t see my hair. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

Travel Diaries – Boxy Tops

Hey guys…
I had a great achievement today.Β Β  I have owned this particular boxy top for the longest while. I just couldn’t style it right and I didn’t think it fitted my shape.
Today I just wore it regardless of all.
I don’t think it looks too bad … right ?

Unfortunately, I forgot to capture the back but it’s pretty sheer and unlined.
