New rules for layering 

Does what to wear during winter make you want to pull out your hair too? 

It kills me to think weather over fashion.. why can’t I have it all?  

Recently, I have found a new way to layer clothes to stay warm and chic. 

Despite what you might think. … this is the time to stock up on awkward midi and long dresses.. yes midi dresses. By layering them over skinny jeans or wide leg trouser, you get to make the most out of it in the winter and the summer. The joy of having a multi-seasonal wardrobe.

There are a few simple rules :

  • Opt for loose fitting and floaty dresses. Midi’s and shirt dresses will change your layering game 👌
    • Experiment with colours, prints and textures. Dresses that contrast your jeans or trousers are ideal.
    • Feel free to seal the layers together with a trench or maxi coat.

    The final rule is to have fun with layering.  This is truly effectless chic at its finest.

    Travel diaries- Destination Birthday

    My love for traveling has multipled over the years. I love getting to see different parts of the world;the foods, the people, art and culture. 

    I have been privilaged to spend another birthday in a different country. In all honesty… this is by far the longest birthday celebrations. It seems as though I have been celebrating since I got here on Monday 19th of September  and I am sure the celebrations will continue long after the 23rd. 

    Birthdays are not quite right without cake. I went back to the Fontanella tea garden for some delicious cake and breathtaking views.

    I ended the day with dinner by the yacht marines. Had the most delicious salad. I did not know that salads could be so tasty. 

    See you soon.  X

    Wearing t-shirts under Spaghetti straps..

    Another 90’s blast from the past that has been trending with both celebrities and fashionistas. 

    This layered look is extra cool. While you might not fancy layering in the hot summer months but this works because the layering is super light.  

    The easiest way to begin experimentimg with this trend is to layer a white t-shirt under a black spaghetti strap dress.  

    This t-shirt midi dress from Topshop actually comes as a one piece but is no longer available. 

    I also styled this orange jumpsuit in the same way with a 3/4sleeve body

    For the ultimate supermodel look layer with a slip dress.  I have curated these TALL cross back slip dress from Topshop for just £29. I can’t get over the amazing colours. Which is your fav colour ?

    Shop these slip dresses here :http://m.topshop.com/h5/product?productId=25196336

    Have fun with experimenting with this throw back 90’s style.

    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.

    Varied stripe –  Becky Striped maxi shirt dress

    This maxi dress turned midi on my six foot tall frame. I am not mad because I loved it so much that I managed to rock it regardless. 

    The varied thickness of the stripes adds so much depth to the pattern.

    With a wrap front and thigh high splits at the side, you can guarantee that you will be showing some legs.

     

    I added my own red bed belt and shoe boots. 😍

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

    So…. for the final look I added the ever classic  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.  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. 😓🙁

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

    Spring 2016 Must haves-Pyjamas inspired day wear (p/t1)

    I have not gone completely mad but yes we are talking about the escape of pyjamas. From the bedroom to the catwalk and now on your high-street.

    It’s taken me a little while to get around to it but I am strangely liking this trend.
    I must say that my 6ft tall frame lends itself well to this style.
    Enough chit-chat pictures already …
    I styled this looks this three ways. This is just part 1.
    If your feeling bold, why not wear the matching top and bottom as I have done here .

    Great accessories are essential here. Bangles, statements hand bags and fab shoes.
    I also opted for bold lips and flawless makeup to avoid looking like I just woke up from sleep and rolled out of bed.

    image

    This green shoulder bag brings out the print details on this outfit and the bright pink lips makes for a great contrast.

    These photos were taken on a fairly windy day and as you can see there is lots of movement in both the pants and blouse.
    It’s not silk but the light polyester fabric was very cooling.
    This pyjamas inspired set was bought from the trusted Marks and Spencer Autograph range.
    Marks and Spencer have a long collection on certain styles. This pants were labelled long and truly the length is not bad; but it’s not for ideal for the 6ft and over club.
    Fabulous shoes just about let me get away with this one.😜

    Stay tuned for part 2 to see my second take on this trend/look.

    Spring 2016 must haves – Metallics

    Yes we are talking the tin man look. … not really, Well…. sort of. Put aside your previous perceptions of metallics. They are back with a strong presence this spring.
    I think they are perfect for adding a little ‘umph’ to any outfit.

    I love the following metallic pieces.
