Cold Shoulder Dress

 

Some trends are fleeting but this is one that I think will stay for a while. What I love most about this trend that it is a very simple way of showing some skin whilst remaining modest. I would recommend this for my corporate friends too.

The shoulder is extremely beautiful and very sensual, hence this trend is very flattering. To top it all off… this dress has a wrap front.  I love this feature in dresses and I think it works well for the curver body.

I made the best find while shopping for cold shoulder dress.  I bought the little beauty from ASOS tall.  This is a classic less is more dress.  It cost less than £15 but it looks like so much more. You are in luck as there are a few sizes left.  Shop this dress HERE

 

I completed this look with a pair of shoes from New look and a Zara Large purse.

Hope I pulled this £11 dress off with class and style.  Let me know your  thoughts

Kimono for the kill !

OK I don’t mean literally but if your trying to make a statement and be fashion forward this is the piece for you.  

Ideal for both daytime and evening looks; I love the versatility of Kimonos. 

Pair yours with cute shorts and flip flops for a trendy beach look. Or with a pair of skinny jeans and killer sandals for your perfect holiday evening outfit. 

I always pack at least one kimono on holiday. 

New look have got a few kimono in the tall range. Shop these here!  I love the floral white one. What do you think of it ? 
See you on the next post. Xo

Five rules for wearing floral prints

Hey lovelies. …. we can hardly make it past summer without saying the ‘F’ word. Floral prints are definitely a summer staple.

Deciding which floral print to wear can be the problem. Is there any such thing as a dated print? Are some prints more suited for specific sessions ? ????🤔

Fashion rules are there to be pushed and broken. But here are 5 rules to help you in wearing floral prints this summer. 

Rule  No. 1

Wear whatever print makes you happy and comfortable . During the summer months you might find that larger sized  prints are more suited to match the bright and vibrant weather.  During the winter you can get away with adding colour and character to grey and cold days with smaller sized floral prints.

Rule No. 2

It is not a crime to wear floral print on floral print.  It takes a very special kind of person to pull this off.  If you are going the extra mile and wish to wear clashing prints, take care not to over do it. Medium sized prints with small sized floral prints might just be the right balance. 
Rule No. 3

Make a statement with your floral print.  Maximum the impact of your floral print by wearing it in a maxi-dress or by draping it in a duster/ kimono.
Rule No. 4

Be brave enough to experiment with colour. Opt for colours which suit your complexion for a girly and fresh look. 
Rule No. 5

If you are still not sure how to join the flower power movement, floral embroidery item are on trend and perfect for this season.

SS17 trends – PomPom shoe clips

With the summer finally here am jazzing up all my shoes and sandals also with fun fluffy pom poms. 

Pompom are literally everywhere.  Add them to you bags , you purse and now your shoes. 

I had all my friends talking and admiring my old shoes because the pom pom clips added a touch of character to them. They are just ridiculously cute.

These are probably the easiest way to upgrade your footwear. 

The pompoms come with clips attached. So I can add and remove them from my shoes as I please (because a girl is allowed to change her him)

Styling Bermuda Shorts

Shorts and summer go hand in hand.  With the sun blessing us with a few rays, it only right we dedicate some time to shorts.

I would never pick shorts first on any given day…but if i had to…. Bermuda shorts would make the cut.  I know,  I Know!  Knee length anything are so ancient, but this classic cut provides a very chic way to hide knock knees, cellulite and what ever else you might want to keep under wraps. 

Unlike other shorts, I would feel very comfortable wearing these to the office or other corporate events. Believe it or not theses shorts are super versatile and easy to dress up or down.

I styled mine by pairing my Bermuda short with a tucked in basic cami ( this gives the illusion that it’s a one piece) and layered a lace blouse on top.  For the added touch of Chic-ness I dug out an old pair of heeled shoes, my Angolmania’s -perfect !

Soo…. have I convinced you that Bermuda shorts are a must try this summer ? 

How would you wear your?
