Summer shorts

Y’all know that I am not a huge fan of showing off my legs.  That said,we make exceptions while catching rays in sunny locations. I bought these denim shorts and they made me fall in love my legs all over again. 

I am now of the veiw that every girl should own at least one pair of Denim shorts. They are great for the beach, to parties and Not to mention totally wearable on those hot summer days.

They are the perfect stretch, high waisted and a cool shade of blue.

I added a longline kimono to this outfit for that swirly carefree blowing in the wind look. I just love it.

Why you all need a Harem jumpsuit this summer.

All year we have seen comfy fashions dominating. We all want to look and feel great with as little effort as possible.

This Mc hammer 90’s trend offers just that.  Can’t explain just how comfortable and breathable this outfit was in the 30 degrees heat.

You are in luck because this Harem jumpsuit is not only on sale,but it’s available in tall and regular fits .

I can see this going from a day to night look with a quick shoe change.

Let me know what you think of this quirky outfit.  Thumbs up or not.

This is probably my first EVER a harem  pants.  I can totally see myself buying more.

A-Z A/W trends 2015 -Over the knee boots

Yep! !!!!!   You guessed it.
Some call it Over The Knee Boots, others OTKB, or even Thigh High Boots. With high or low heel, leather or suede. Whatever YOU call it this is a must have for this season.

Below are some of my favourite for 2015

image

I am still madly in love with the colour Camel and I am swaying more to the suede/ suedette look. However, peep toes get me each and every time.

I am 6ft 1 and I say yes to some heel with this trend.

One thing I have noticed about these over the knee boots is that it’s hard to find a pair that fits my large calf’s and my thick thighs 🙈🙈🙈🙈

I featured the above boots from New look in my anatomy of the 70’s fashion post. They were great for my big calf and thighs and they are available in a UK size 9

Earn your stripes

Have you earned your fashion stripes.
You have to be pretty bold and basically not give a damn to try this striking stripe on stripe combination. But guess what…. I think it totally works. Don’t you?

image

This ensemble has it all going on. More is surely more here. We are seeing this trend all over the fashion runway with designer taking a linear approach and mixing chunky and thin stripes, vertical and horizontal. Anything goes so there is room on the line for you to stamp your personality on this look.

image

This wrap front shirt does wonders for me and the neck line is very flattering. As you can see this “fab” blouse was perfectly designed for my tall limbs and the sleeves kiss my wrist perfectly.

image

This trend will have you on the fast track to fashionable lane.

Don’t Midi me

Why hello there !

image

Today I am rocking out in a tea length wiggle wiggle dress … otherwise known as a midi dress.

Midi’s have made a massive come back and so now you can add more class to you closet with one if these.

image

image

This dress from Asos is my current day and night go to dress. Give me a pair of flat pumps and I would go from a lady who likes to lunch to casual shopping spree with the girls in an instant. It is totally versatile.
Wiggle wiggle dresse you are cut to perfection and you flatter and flatten all the right places.;)

image

image

One thing I love about midi is that it is not restricted to a specific body shape. My slim and curvy ladies can pull this off and so can my petite and tall beauts.
 

image

Have fun with experimenting with dress lengths and don’t let anyone dull your midi shine.

See you on the next post.

Play time

With the summer FINALLY visiting the UK it’s officially play time.

I am totally not leg confident but this playsuit adds variety to the everyday choice of shirt, dress or trousers.

image

I love the skirted front of this number.  It is not as covered as I would have liked but I subconsciously feel less exposed.

image

The deep cut back means you need to have your bra game on point.  I decided to wear my clear back bra from Debenhams with this playsuit and it worked well. If your too blessed to not be able to go bra less you might want to consider a good  bra before purchasing.
For the curvy ladies getting a good fitting bra can be the bane of our lives not to mention a multi-functional one.

I am not convinced that this playsuit is the most comfortable but I know for sure that it brought the heat.🔥🔥🔥
And that ladies is the price we sometimes have to pay.

image

With an outfit that speaks volumes my accessories were kept to a minimum.

image

Words can not describe it but there is something about having your hands in your pocket and strutting “your stuff”. We see it on the runway all the time…It’s oozes confidence.

Co-ordinate your wardrobe with “co-ords’

Have you ever put an outfit together and thought you were too matchy…. too coordinated. That perfect green dress paired with the green shoes and of course a green handbag topped with green accessories and you have created a monster outfit.🐉:D:D.

Well not anymore. This is the time to put your co-ordination skills to the test by giving the matching sets trend a go.
I think I pulled it off pretty well. Will be great to see you comments below👍.

image

Yes… in case you were wondering this is a set. A peplum top teamed with the matching pencil skirt.

I have to give credit where credit is due. This peplum top is cut to perfection and it fits almost pefectly on my tall build. Believe me I know a thing or two about how clothing should fit with almost ten years fit modelling experience. From the sleeve head to the neck line and the waist line seam is well positioned ( although moving it a few Cm south would be perfect👌).

image

image

Is it me or do I have a slimmer and longer silhouette in this outfit? Can not complain though, plus its Scuba fabric 👐👐👐

image

Am having a midi obsession and love that this shirt is just over the knee and for a non Tall item it’s a pretty good length.

Be sure to let me know your thoughts on my matching set.

Navy envy

I know am not alone in my love for navy.  I can’t quite explain it but something about this colour looks so royal… and ….rich;).

This is why most ladies would melt at the sight of a man in a navy suit 😍.

I was oozing navy in my all navy attire.
This midi slit dipped hem shift dress works wonders for am effortless chic look. Although not a tall garment the length is just right.

Delight in White

Without a doubt you too have noticed the white wipe-out trend.  It’s all well and good if you are a size 8(hiss) but when we have heard “White makes you look bigger” for years, this is not a trend that many will feel confident enough to follow.

In all honestly, while some colours can be more flattering than others, nothing makes you slimmer than to be Confident. And that means wearing and experimenting with colours and trends in a way which makes you feel comfortable.  That’s exactly what I did by adding some neutral shades to the mix.  Do not worry, I will be braving the total White Wipe-out trend very very soon.  Until then, delight in some white ;-D

I find that adding different gradients of white helps to break up the look.!
