Perfect Pleats

Skirts are essentials in every ladies wardrobe.  How much better when the skirt is a midi, pleated and printed.

YessssūüôĆūüôĆ.¬†That’s triple glory in my books.

Pleated skirts have an element of “back to school” and it reminds me of my much cherished school days. ¬†I hated my pleated kilt skirt back then. Who would have known that I would be investing¬†in pleated skirts now.¬†On a more serious note, this skirt is lush and it would make the perfect center piece for every outfit.

I am obsessed with movement and this skirt has got it all and a bag of chips. Although not part of the tall range at Topshop, I just had to click buy.

The sad part of life is that you can’t always get what you want, when you want it.

So this is my secret.

When I can’t find a style in the tall range, I always check out the standard range. ¬†Generally I can get away with a midi length in the standard range.

Ta daaa!!!

Never let your height make you feel disadvantaged

This shirt works so well as a high waist number.  Can you see what I mean by the length. Perfect for my long legs

Colour confidence

It’s so easy to get stuck in a rot with the summer we have had … or not had!!  This feeling can reflect in the sorts of clothing you wear…or even the colours you choose.¬† September kinda marks the beginning of the autumn season. So why not go out with a bang. I just had this urge to experiment with colours. Yes I had people craning their necks to look at me. I did wonder if I had taken it a bit too far until I realised it was stares of admiration…;);) well… so my friend told me.

Wow… this full maxi skirt is everything to me right now.¬† Made from light fabrics so it sways and moves with every step.

Sweat patches are the bane of my life!
One of the main reasons I shy away from coloured clothing. However, I recently discovered sweat pads (God bless the genius who came up with this) and currently use PURAX Pure Pads Antiperspirant . Super discreet and works wonders.

All season shoe booties

Over here in the UK seasons are everything. Yes we have a lot of cold and grey weather but amongst all that there are some priced hot sunny summer months(or weeks) too.

Today am sharing one of my all seasons trendy foot wear.  In the current financial climate I definitely get my monies worth when I invest in a pair of shoe boots as they are so versatile.

So here are a few ways I would wear mine.

Peep toe shoe boots are my ultimate favourites.
These will transform any casual outfit.
The exposed heel and toes instantly makes it fit for the summer.

These fringed booties add a a touch of the trending 70s shake to this look.

Now your probably wondering how you can wear this in the winter.
I team my peep toe booties with frill socks.  You can add variety to the look with a bit of colour

This versatile footwear lends it’s self perfectly to this stylish chic look. Toeless tights are ideal for peep toe shoe boots in the cold winter months. I love these Berkshire tights. They have a wide variety of shades for all skin tones.

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.

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

Summer Sweater- Fashionably comfortable

Is it too warm to wear a sweater in the summer … Well in my eyes, comfort is always in season.

I am feeling comfortably fashionable in this ensemble. If you live in the UK you will understand why it is good to stay loyal to warm wears. Yes, even in the summer months.

I love the cut out shoulder detail on this sweater. As I always say, “A little shoulder sexy-ness never hurt no body”. ¬†Instantly this sweater does not look so chunky , although its a pretty thick yarn. The oversize cut makes this a perfect piece for relaxing in as it hangs looses on the body.

Would it be wrong for me to just live in these jersey trousers.?

They are so comfortable. What I love most is that they are in this Oak Buff/ Camel colour that is hot for Fall 2015. Ladies  I know we complain about trousers not being long enough but these trousers really shut me up. The viscose fabric dropped so much that this trousers would have been sweeping the streets had I not rolled them at the waist.

I completed this look with a simple neck piece . For the effortless fashionable finish.

I had totally forgotten about my Birks till I visited my physiotherapist who pointed out that I was getting flat foot. Now am on a quest to take better care of my feet. I am no podiatrist but I have read that the raised arch of Birks helps support the foot’s natural shape and structure.
