The Holiday Shop

22 Apr

Although it’s still only April and the weather has been beyond awful with showers, hail stones etc.. the high street is awash with colour. The Aztec, Tribal and Pastel trends luckily lend themselves perfectly to a holiday wardrobe! I always think its best to buy a few things as soon as the summer clothes come in even if you aren’t lucky enough to be seeing the sun for a few months! One of my absolute favourites is this coral skirt from Zara, I wasn’t totally sold on the half skirt half sheer initially, but it’s a summer holiday must! The holiday staple has to be these denim shorts from H&M with the tribal detailing on the pockets and waistband which gives them a little edge. I had to include a printed pant in the holiday shop as they are the current high-street trend splitting opinion! Are they really wearable for every size and style? There are loud and muted options available but the best place to try out this new trend is on holiday…why not try these tropical printed trousers from Oasis? Pair with a plain tank or shirt and really make the trousers the centerpiece! H&M and Forever 21 make up the majority of this holiday haul, they are so affordable and have options for every style and size. Save your spending on wardrobe staples and winter essentials!

Now comes the tough part…how to get this all into one carry-on bag?!

Perfect Pastels

22 Feb

 

These are my picks of the perfect pastels!Ice-cream colours are everywhere right now even though the weather isn’t ready for them it’s always nice to pick up a few spring/summer items in advance! Although pastels can be quite muted like this blouse from Oasis, stores such as Zara, ASOS and New Look have all got a hint of neon in their pastels ensuring you won’t look too washed out… pale lilac against pale skin can make you look a little grey! However I do love the muted ice blue of these skinny trousers from River Island, a very wearable pastel for spring! I just bought an apricot blazer from new look yesterday … it’s looking VERY bright currently peaking from my wardrobe considering the dull weather outside..

My favourite way to introduce pastels right now is by wearing pale violet and mint shade nails! Such as the POP Nail varnish above or what I am currently wearing Revlon Charming. The best mint shade I’ve found so far is Barry M mint green.

Pastels are a great Spring trend and there is so much colour choice making it really accessible for anyone.

*just take note too much ice cream can make you feel sick this also applies to ice-cream coloured clothing.

Get Bright Get Right!

22 Jan

The new looks this season are BRIGHT! We can’t seem to let go of the colour-blocking trend which we saw sweeping the catwalk and high street last year! The great thing about brights is that you don’t need a lot to really liven up your outfit just a touch here or there will give you that spring feeling a little early! I’m loving this coral shade so pretty (actually I had to re-do this post to edit out some of the many many coral/orange items I had chosen!). If your workplace is relaxed on colour I would highly advise these high-waisted trousers from Forever 21 paired with a crisp white shirt would be so refreshing for Spring! Another great option for a quick work to night out look would be to pair this hot pink peplum top (Awear) with a pencil skirt, it’s feminine but well-cut for a working wardrobe. I have of course thrown in many casual items like these pink skinny jeans from River Island, a bright blue top from Forever 21 and coral boat shoes also from River Island easy to mix and match with tamer shades!

My favourite item here has to be the illuminous yellow laptop case from ASOS the perfect injection of BRIGHT!!

Not everything is black and white..

15 Jan

Grey (via dictionary.com)

of a neutral tone, intermediate between black and white…dismal or dark, gloomy…neutral or dull.

All ways I would also describe the month of January.  Without the Christmas lights and decorations everything starts to look a little gloomy… however grey does not have to be dull! Grey is an all-flattering colour as it comes in so many shades and is less stark on the skintone than jet black! It’s an effortlessly chic colour appropriate for day and night and especially for the working girl. It can be worked as shown above in a number of different ways from office wear e.g. the Zara overcoat or long pleated skirt, for the pretty/boho in the ASOS grey sheer pleated dress or the rock chic in the horse print mini-dress paired with a leather jacket and heels. It’s such an accessible shade and can be accented with colour. Turquoise blues and coral pinks work particularly well for a pop of colour!

Don’t know where to start adding grey to your closet? You can’t go wrong with a grey cashmere jumper! Effortless and easy.

Let it sparkle…

21 Nov

Tis nearly the season to be jolly…. and the season where you do not need to excuse the amount of sequins you wear.  Fact. Just as I was feeling a little dull in black, grey, navy blazers and jackets the high street is teeming with sparkling outerwear just in time for the festive season! You can’t help but feel a little christmassy in these beauties!

The pale nude (warehouse) and pink shades (dorothy perkins) are really pretty options. This item could be the emergency outfit saver thrown over a top and jeans….instant glamour!

Faux in the Snow

18 Oct

Have some faux in the snow this winter with fur! We are spoilt for choice from the high street and just a touch of fur will really enhance your everyday winter look. There are fabulous faux furtippets‘ or add-ons that can be attached to the lapels of any boring winter coat for a bit of added glam! Above are a few of my top picks from the high street and online stores. Gilets are big news again this year and there are a variety of colours and styles available.

I’m a bit obsessed by this deep red fur jacket from ASOS the colour is just amazing and it looks so expensive! The snow leopard print from River Island is another option (you may blend into the scenery in a few months time though), or you could go for  the classic brown chestnut coloured fur coat from H&M. Not into full on fur? Use the little touches such as a scarf, tippet or bag to add some winter lux this season!

Magnificent Miu Miu!

28 Sep

Miu Miu have always had fabulous handbags I love the simple shapes and colours. Just last week I spent a good 10 minutes 20 minutes circling a table full of Miu Miu bags while shopping last week. I couldn’t bring myself to look at the price tag…until now. So here are a few bags from the collection that are WELL above my budget….time for the lottery.
