Sun’s out and style’s laidback

Hello lovelies,

Hope this summer has been good to you so far. We are having some really great weather here in the UK lately. it comes and goes but when it comes, it comes really hard, and I for one have been enjoying running around when the sun’s out. Unfortunately, with my schedule nowadays, I can’t really dress up much. So my new uniform is print bottoms and t-shirts. I really am trying to dress up but does anybody else get serious style fatigue when it gets hot? Or is that just me? Anyway, here’s me doing extremely easy summer style.

Because I have a long print coat

Hello Lovelies,

Hope you are all. And enjoying the onset of spring. I’m glad to share this slightly different take on a print mix look. Normally, when I mix prints I look for similar patterns or colours. But another great principle to use when mixing prints is to go for one really basic subdued print and use it as a background for a much bolder print. The print on this trousers is very small and repetitive so it doesn’t really pop at all. And I subdued the print even more, by pairing it with a white shirt, making the white background really stand out over the print. With all that white as the background, I could add a much bigger print without causing a clash that is too jarring.

So what do you think, will you be trying this principle? Do share your pictures if yu do, and if you’re not doing so already, follow me on instagram.

The Inbetween

Because the weather is still undecided

 

Hello Lovelies.

So spring is officially here. But the weather is in that confused state where it can be warm one minute and chilly the next. So we’re basically having to dress for two seasons everyday. And if that’s not going well for you, I have a simple solution today. Fun colourful prints that are spring appropriate paired with lightweight knits and over sized blazers. It’s perfect, I tell you. The prints say, yaay new season and the knits and blazers are perfect because when it’s warm, you’re not sweaty and uncomfortable and when the temperatures drop, you’re not freezing cold. Plus, together they are so stylish.

Because you can see it from a distance

Hello lovelies, its been a long time. Hope you are all doing well. So, if you follow me on instagram, then you would have caught a preview of this look a while ago. And if you don’t, what are you waiting for? I actually wore it on Valentine weekend to a friend’s wedding. And I must say, it was a pretty great wedding. I don’t think I have ever danced this much at a wedding. So it was perfect that I had on a jumpsuit which allowed ease of movement. You guys know that I love me a bold jumpsuit, as an alternative to a gown, and this one with it’s bright colour, sweetheart neckline and front heart insert was really perfect for a weekend of love. I decided to finish off the look with a quirky purple lip, and minimal accessories. Simple and still bold.

First summer and then Winter

Hello lovelies,

I hope January has been good to you all so far. You might remember this dress and jacket combo from last summer. I absolutely loved rocking and I immediately started to think of different ways in which I could style it. If you remember, the last outfit post with this dress was very mother of the bride, summer wedding inspired. Check  that out here. This time, I wanted to give it a preppy but still edgy vibe for winter so I decided to add a white button down shirt and a pair of fringe high heeled booties. It was raining and dark when we took these photos so I only managed to get a few good shots and you can’t even see the fringe detail on the boots properly. So i’m hoping the next time I shoot these boots, i can give you a better look at them.
