New Stripes

Don’t you just love being able to make a statement by keeping things simple? When you can walk into a room and make an impression without trying, you’re onto something! Stripes are something way too many are scared to wear. I’m obsessed with them and don’t care what the fashion rules are. Many say that bigger women should avoid them altogether or only wear them vertically. I have stripes of all directions in my wardrobe! They work for every season, every occasion and in every colour possible!

Red and black are a combination of colours that always look good. Whenever I wear black I like to wear a deep red lipstick as it really pops. Evans clothing are seriously impressing me at the moment with the amount of fun and colourful stripes they have. As soon as I saw this vertical stripe sweater and these leggings I knew I wanted them! When you find something that you can wear to the office, out on the town, at home, casually or dressed up this is an item you need! If you can find items that can be worked into a series of looks I would advise that you pick them up!

Does life ever feel like it’s moving faster than you can? I feel this way a lot of the time so being able to just throw on some clothes without thinking too much makes life a little easier. If you know that what you’re wearing looks good with minimal effort you really can’t go wrong! Being able to get on with your day feeling good, looking good with no stress is the best thing possible!

I wanted to have a fun, playful look when I could showcase my musical diva side. Stripes allow you to really do it all. I wanted to look cute, playful, chic and sassy all at the same time and I think I achieved it here. I really enjoy looks that as black or white with a short shock of colour. In some cases less really can be more!

What are you enjoying this season? Would you say prints are your thing, block colours or stripes? I’m enjoying keeping it simple with a little something extra. Not everything this time of year is all glitz and glamour. Sometimes you need to just pace yourself.

What A Mesh!

One thing we all love about the autumn season is the pretty colours. Fallen leaves, the change in nature and richness of everything makes everyone feel cosy and set for the holiday season. The cold has just started to set in but we recently had a few days of warmth left. I had the perfect shift midi dress to wear and in the colour of rich berries. Lane Bryant sent me the most gorgeous Bell-Sleeve Lace dress with 3/4 sleeves.

What caught my eye with this one with the bell shaped sleeves initially. I could tell that this dress could be casually, dressy and styled really easily. The loose fit also meant that this would be a comfortable one to wear this time of year which is exactly what I like. Sometimes the last thing you want to do is stick on a pair of spanx just so that your dress hangs well. Shift dresses are perfect if you want something pretty and effortless to wear.

I love pretty little details. When it comes to dresses, details are usually in the hemline or neckline. These days it seems that sleeves and layers are adding pretty features to the overall look. I love the fact that this dress is really silky to the touch and it’s lightweight whilst appearing to be made in a heavier fabric. And what about the colour?! Isn’t it just gorgeous?! It reminds me of figs and sweet grapes, very autumnal.

I thought it would be fun to pair the dress with a cute pair of floral ankle boots from Evans. I love an ankle boot, I find them to be so comfortable and more often than not they have such a cute style and look. These ones are just gorgeous, big thanks to Hanna for letting me borrow them lol. The colours and print just worked perfectly with the dress and made for a really comfortable yet stylish look.

So tell me, what items are you trying to get some wear out of before the weather gets really chilly? You could make some great transitional outfits!

London Spring

One of the things I love about being born in London is that there is just so much to do. We have some gorgeous parks, historical sights and great architecture to indulge in. I live close to to Hampstead Heath and really enjoy taking walks there when the weather is nice. This particular part of the city has remained the same for so long. Unlike the glass structures and modern fixtures you see everywhere we still see old buildings, red phone boxes and other things that are typically British.

The other day I was taking an afternoon walk around Hampstead on a cooler spring day. I decided that as it was drizzling I would pull on some lighter items and celebrate the spring that way. It’s the time of year when although the sun is out and the weather is hot we still have wet and dreary days. I pulled on these fun pearl jeans from Evans Clothing. My thought was that i’d wear something casual and easy. When it comes to denim you just can’t go wrong!

Along side the jeans I thought I’d pull on this baby blue off the shoulder sweater from Navabi. This top is also available in peachy Apricot but with blue being my favourite colour there really was no choice lol. I thought i’d wear a simple pair of converse sneakers and a white denim jacket to finish things off. One thing London could be famous for is unpredictable weather so at times you have to be prepared for all eventualities.

The funny thing is I have lived in London my entire life and some things never get old! Since the rise of mobile phone usage you pretty much would never see a phone box anywhere but the traditional red ones have been left in place. Some of them have random plants and things placed inside. This one I stumbled across still worked which is a rare thing to see in the city!

London is my home town. I was born here and have never lived anywhere else. So many people come to my city and fall in love with the place. When you grow up somewhere like this it’s easy to overlook the gorgeous architecture, history and splendour. Such a diverse place to live bursting with life and madness lol. With the run up to the Royal wedding one can’t help but be surrounded by all things British and enjoy it!

Spring Time Blush

I decided the other night when I took a walk around my local area that I’d opt for cute and stylish outfirl with these blush pink items. We’re in that weird time of the Spring season when the sun is out but we still can get a sharp sting of cold in the air. Just a few days ago in London it was so cold at night that one might have needed to have put the heating on! I personally like to be warm enough to battle the cold but still dressed in a way that’s comfortable. Elvi have fashions to suit every mood you could be in, something I love about them!

I have a thing for really cute and fluffy sweaters. When I first saw this one I really wanted it as a part of my wardrobe. It looked as though it would be super comfortable. I love the blush pink colour and the pearl bar detail on the sleeves is a really nice touch. It is a little shorter than what I would usually go for but, it works really well with skirts and high waisted jeans. As a neutral colour I think it works well with a wide range of items and looks. A great option for anyone.

One thing I love is when a brand can make a simple skirt have a little edge and flare. Who can go wrong with a blush pink patent skirt?! This one has a ruched elasticated waist, perfect for a little added comfort and security. Living with one of your best friends is a lot of fun, especially when it comes to swapping clothes! Hanna had this skirt, also from Elvi and I just had to try it with the sweater!

I like to mix different looks. Sometimes wintery items work perfect with summer ones and vise versa. Sweaters and skirts are a fun combination to wear. I thought to finish off the look i’d wear these cute navy open toe flare heels. Combine those with a nice brown leather bag and you’re good to go. Transitional pastels along with some darker tones, quite chic I think. It helps that I have dark hair or everything would be brown or blush lol.

Even though I hare a series of scars on my legs from tumbles and falls as a kid I still showcase my pins from time to time. Something like that is not reason enough for me to cover up my legs. I would urge others who are conscious of theirs to just go for it. Trust me, most of the fear you have is built up is all in your own head. Everyone has things that they are unhappy with. I say, you do you!

I’m hoping that the last of the cold days are over. Hopefully I won’t have to break out anymore sweaters lol. To see some other fun edgy items from Elvi, check out this recent post.
