Shift it.

Cos I’m wearing a shift dress and I can’t think of a title

Hey Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well and having a great summer so far. I am back with another simple look that I totally enjoyed rocking. On a sunny day in England, I got to rock this simple but gorgeous dress that I designed. I wanted the look to be simple but have a fun element so I decided to pair it with a pair of pink chunky platforms to quirk it up. These platforms are super comfortable and I was very free to move about and do as I needed to that day. I do love a good comfortable outfit, and it seems these days, you can’t have a good well put together outfit that is also comfortable but I refuse to accept an either or situation. I’ll have it both ways please.

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.

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.
