SATIN SKIRT & BLAZER

I had been desperate to wear my H&M midi silk skirt for as long as I can remember, but had no occasion that was appropriate; so when I was invited to a Christening it was the first item to spring to mind. I wanted something formal, yet chic and you cannot beat a black and white outfit with a pop of dusty pink. 

Knits are a great pairing with satin skirts, but for an occasion I wanted something more dressy. My black H&M double breasted blazer with gold button detailing was a must. The wide lapels and button formation are just beautiful. I chose a white satin crop top to peep out of the blazer; giving an overall elegant aesthetic. I finished the whole look with dainty dusty pink satin heels with ankle strap.

This cropped blazer by COLLUSION with cropped length, check design and shoulder pad detailing is my GO-TO blazer this A/W. I paired the blazer with relaxed, low-rise loose blue jeans and a brown satin lingerie-look crop top. The outfit nips in and fits in all the right places! I finished off the look with my tan Topshop cowboy boots; ideal for lunch/relaxed dinner or browsing the shops. 

For a more work appropriate killer-look the matching trousers complete the set. The wide leg trouser is perfect for work; comfortable and chic. These COLLUSION trousers look great drawn in with a belt; I styled here with my signature Gucci belt.

DIOR EYESHADOW PALETTE OF DREAMS

Earlier this year my gorgeous friend gifted me the most PERFECT Dior eyeshadow palette. The palette is the Dior 5 COULEURS COUTURE – SUMMER DUNE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION Eyeshadow palette – couture eyes. The palette is extremely pigmented in luminous gold and copper shades. The shades are perfect for Autumn/Winter glam, while I also double the pink shade as a blusher. The set comes with a wide sponge applicator, a thin sponge applicator, a blending brush and an angled shading brush, which fit within the compact; ideal for topping up during the day. This will 100% be my go-to palette! Thank you Chloë! ❤

Whether lockdown has allowed us to re-connect with our pre-teen roots or Wimbledon is inspiring not only sports fans, but also the fashion sect…I’m here for it!

This Zara dress is an incredibly flattering, fashionable style. Take the tennis skirt and combine it with a classic white cotton shirt; perfection. The wrap over top and loose fitting skirt, drawn in at the waist is the epitome of figure flattering. I styled the dress with a thick tan belt and dainty tan sandals; the ultimate brunching/lunching look.

Mango is a dream site for statement Midaxi styles. The Midaxi combines Midi & Maxi length. The length is ideal for an occasion where midi is too informal and maxi is too formal. Being tall it is a great option.

This ASOS midi denim skirt is a killer piece, the length, colour, material and tie-waist detailing combine to create the most figure flattering skirt on the market. Here I styled the skirt with both a simple ecru ribbed crop top and a tucked off-white sweat, finished with high-top trainers for a relaxed look. The skirt could be dressed up too – a tulle or silk crop top with heeled sandals would create a fab dressy option. Stylish, chic & simple.

The sweatshirt dress is a must for Spring! As the weather FINALLY begins to break into dress weather, a sweatshirt dress is a great transitional piece before the pretty Summer dresses take reign. Statement red is a non-stop trend for me; I always have one or two statement red pieces lined up, whether it be Summer or Winter. This New Look sweatshirt dress is an absolute winner. The American High-School Varsity theme is a VIBE, a look that I’ve always loved. While we are still adjusting coming out of lockdown the comfort of a sweatshirt dress is a great way of getting out of sweatpants and back into the world. Paired with white Zara high-top trainers you cannot go wrong.

CHECK-MATE

I had my eye on this dreamy & Other Stories jumper for a LONG time. At the original price of an eye watering £85 although I adored the style I was hesitant…until the jumper appeared in the sale for £56. Knowing how long I had yearned for this style I crumbled. 

I thought the jumper style was so unique and classy. Having ordered the jumper in size M I was concerned the jumper would size-up small…how wrong could I be! & Other Stories sizing is stunning; the jumper has an oversized look, which looks incredibly classy. The alpaca blend material feels luxurious and has an expensive look. The grey and cream check is a great transitional colour-way; ideal for Winter into Spring. 

This Zara cream cargo style mini-skirt and cream Mango chunky boots compliment the cream in the check jumper and give a young aesthetic to the outfit. If you’ve followed my blog for a while you will know I ADORE a pop of red. Here I accessorised with my red Coach belt, Topshop red saddle bag and Gucci red lip. Check Mate!

HELLO MARCH!

The British weather in March can be so confusing; one minute we get downpours and grey sky, the next unexpected rays of sunshine. This outfit is a fab look for this time of year. You can easily throw on a jacket or coat to suit the weather.

I’ve owned these Mango cream flowing trousers for a few years now and I just adore them. The quality, fit and length is perfect. Here I tucked the trouser into my cream Mango boots for a billowing effect. This styling technique is an effective way to wear long flowing trousers without the worry of the cuff getting dirty in wet weather. 

The trousers look great with a crop style; it shows the tie waist belt detailing. This Zara pale pink shirt has a satin look which adds femininity. The balloon sleeve, collar and small button details turn this plain style into chic and the gold Zara body chain necklace is a great accessory addition.

VALENTINE’S DAY 2021

Valentine’s Day 2021 was a different one! Whether you would have normally celebrated with your SO or treated yourself to a Galentine’s boozy brunch, this year was undoubtably different for everyone. I spent my day gearing up for an extra special trip to the local Costa Coffee drive thru for a 5* Gingerbread latte. Thinking that perhaps a take-away coffee was a bit sad, I decided to fashion a yummy homemade Afternoon Tea. Miniature Victoria sponge cakes and Mumma Jo’s 5* cheese scones were undoubtably the stars of the show. 

Despite not being able to go anywhere, this red Zara Love collection was too irresistible not to try. I will let you in to a secret…I wore a cream sweatsuit all of actual Valentine’s with minimal make-up, but shooting these delectable red pieces earlier in last week gave me the minuscule of escapism that I craved.

In years to come, how will you look back on your lockdown Valentine’s Day?!

CHELSEA PEERS ZEBRA PRINT PYJAMAS

I was gifted these Chelsea Peers pjs for Christmas and oh my…I could live in them! They’re beyond chic and totally appropriate for going out in, right?! The zebra print is unique and playful, monochrome is my go-to. I’m quite picky with pjs as I cannot stand when they pull or feel tight; no-one wants to wake up in the middle of the night to your PJ bottoms half twisted and crazily uncomfortable. Although I love the idea of silk pyjamas, I don’t like the lack of movement; this pair is 95% Polyester & 5% Elastane. The material has a wonderful stretch and feels luxuriously silky smooth. The pyjama designs are genius; extremely tasteful. The Chelsea Peers brand was created due to a gap in the market for luxury lounge/sleepwear – ‘The loungewear you can do nothing in, but also wear to host a party. Alas, Chelsea Peers was born!’. While we are still currently in a lockdown in the UK, treat yourself to a pair – it’s essential!

FASHION TRENDS 2021

At the beginning of each year I enjoy scoping out the trends for the forthcoming year. I explored the Spring 2021 and Resort 2021 of designers from Elie Saab to Comme des Garçons, picking out my favourites from each. Once I pick out my favourites I visually form trends. The most exciting factor of this for me is seeing the high-street shops release fashion items that correlate with the designer catwalks. 

BRIGHT NEUTRALS

My 2021 trends start with bright neutrals; Oscar De La Renta, Elie Saab and Emporio Armani alongside a multitude of designers have celebrated bright whites, cream and neutral shades in the  form of suiting, dresses, capes and jumpsuits. 

MONOCRHOME

The next trend is Monochrome; I’ve always adored a monochrome aesthetic and Saint Laurent in particular produced some iconic looks, beyond chic.  

LET IT SHINE

Iridescent materials, sequins and silk build the trend of ‘let it shine’. All year round shine can be styled for every eventuality. Who would have thought of styling sequins and sparkle with an oversized mens shirt; but its iconic and a look I desire to wear. The Attico is a brand that I hadn’t heard of but their striking design stole my gaze instantly, (the first two images) I will certainly keep my eye out for this brand in the future. 

PATTERN

Pattern is not my choice of style, but oh my these designs are breathtaking. The Moschino yellow and pink polka dot number and Italian flag suit are incredibly distinctive. Pattern has certainly been done before, but this year is the year for REAL pattern. Unique, flashy and oh so Vogue! 

TULLE

Fashion has been toying with tulle for a couple of years now and it appears tulle is featuring in full swing for 2021. Tulle coats, skirts and tops are set to hit the high-street. I adore the translucent skirts and tops styled for high-summer. 

RELAXED DENIM

Denim jeans, white shirts and heels has been a staple outfit of mine forever…It cannot be beaten. The simplistic styling is slick and sexy. Denim has featured on Victoria Beckham and Celine collections. Denim shorts are a summer must, while wide leg jeans with thick turn-ups are so in.

RED

Red is always in. The colours suits any occasion and any season. Red demands attention, which I love. My favourite look featuring red is the No.21 look; red sweatshirt with white text and a formal black midi skirt. I will 100% be sporting this look this year.

SUIT YOURSELF

Women’s suiting is powerful and provoking. Cropped blazers, wide lapels, even the addition of a harness; the possibility for modern feminine suiting is endless. Just a simple oversized suit dominated 2020, however 2021 is the year suiting branches out into a plethora of variations. Here Vivienne Westwood created an incredible look. The model wears a black oversized pinstripe suit which is iconic within itself. The suit is styled with a black harness, red fishnet stockings, red heels and a daring red lip. I am in adoration of this entire vibe; a look I will be recreating for the forthcoming years.

HELLO 2021! MARTHA BROOK PERSONALISED DIARY

Happy New Year beautiful people! Thank you to each and every precious person that has supported my blog this past year, it means the world. Christmas & New Years provided a much needed feeling of escapism and warmth that was lacking from reality. Unfortunately, with things not looking up it feels merely impossible to think positively. Nevertheless we must keep calm and carry on (pardon the cliche)! 

Unprecedented is a word we all heard repeatedly in 2020; no other word can better describe the circumstances. As I evaluated my 2020 I realised I had multiple major achievements, however I was still left feeling flat. Going back through videos and pictures from the start of 2020, especially my trip to New York just feels like another lifetime.  

Although the start to 2021 hasn’t been the fresh page in a diary we all craved, we must push to save our sanity. Immerse yourself in everything you love. I find enjoyment in aesthetic visuals; Pinterest, Instagram, films and magazines are my haven. If you enjoy reading, select a new book and engross yourself in a dream world.

Getting a new diary is a highlight to the start of the year. I adore the excitement of what entries I will write in every day on the fresh pages. Although you may think in 2020 you didn’t do much, trust me when written down theres a whole lot more than you may initially think. 

This year my Momma gifted me a slate grey Martha Brook London Diary with gold foil. It came in a stunning presentation box, which was a lovely touch. The soft-back design of the diary makes it easy to open fully and has plenty of sections to write notes and keep up-to-date. The diary starts with a ‘Year Planner’ section, followed by a monthly calendar style, day-to-day note space, specific ‘notes’ pages and an ‘achievements, reflections, goals and key dates’ section. I adore the personalisation on the front cover.

This year I downloaded the 1 second a day app where you shoot a 1 second video each day and end up with a time lapse of the entire year. Hopefully this year I will see a colossal change as the year progresses. I also write a daily diary and photograph entry to a private Instagram for ‘my eyes only’. Not only does this promote keeping busy, you can look back over your digital scrapbook.

One thing I did this year that I have never done before was a letter to my future self. I thought after the most bizarre and shocking year I would make an account of each and every major event. I poured my heart into writing a lengthy account, even shedding the odd tear as I typed. Upon review, I learnt who I cherish in life and how incredibly lucky I am and have been despite everything going on. I’ve scheduled the letter to be emailed to myself in 2030. If you love writing and need some time to reflect, I highly recommend. 

I’m sending everyone a virtual hug, keep your chin up!

NARNIA AFTERNOON TEA AT THE ASSEMBLY HOUSE, NORWICH

After the most peculiar year I can’t believe that its Christmas already! With the devastating tier announcements yesterday, my heart breaks for those who cannot be with their family over the festive period. I’m sending all of my love to everyone!

While I was feeling a complete lack of Christmas spirit my Mumma surprised me with the most spectacular Afternoon Tea. I’ve had Afternoon Tea in numerous places in the country and I have to say The Assembly House is nearly impossible to beat. The Assembly House has incredible grounds and a breath-taking interior. It really is a treat to dine there. They have added 2 incredible igloo style seating areas on the grounds for Covid safe dining, I didn’t dine in one this time but in the future will be sure to request it.

The Narnia themed Afternoon Tea was the perfect Christmassy twist. We chose the Assembly House Afternoon Tea Blend, which was delicious and treated ourselves to a Passionfruit Bellini. The highlights for me were the turkey, sage, onion stuffing and cranberry roll, Assembly House sausage roll, the frozen toadstool macaron and the Faun Gingerbread Cupcake. Each flavour ignited a nostalgic Christmas feeling. The finger sandwiches were made on the softest bread and the scones were delectably warm.

I wore Zara cream mom jeans and a Zara cream knit blouse with pussybow detailing. I styled a H&M cream faux-fur cropped jacket, cream Gucci bag, tan Gucci belt and ASOS neutral patent heels with ankle tie. It was truly incredible to dress up and have a small amount of escapism from reality.

SHIRT DRESS & SWEATER VEST

Zara knits are the one this Winter! The knit vest is perhaps the leading trend this Winter. These two stunning knits were my favourites on the market. Knowing this trend was looming I was checking New In on my favourite sites every day! Finally, Zara released two matchless designs. I love following trends but putting my own twist on them too. I adore green and this shade is particularly unique. I fell totally in love with the unique design; the lettuce sleeve, stitch detailing and high neckline are all details that create the sweetest design. The cropped fit adds a unique aesthetic to the jumper style. Styled over the top of a Zara midi shirt dress with cream boots; the look is an ultimate Winter vibe. The camel cable-knit sweater vest with frills is another flawless design. The oversized fit and V neckline are beautiful details. I was planning on sending one knit back, however I just couldn’t decide which design to keep so settled on both! To finish off the classic fit I added my Zara chunky gold bust necklace with chain. J’adore sweater vests.

A British Winter guarantees minus temperatures. I love snuggling up in a dressing gown, watching a new Netflix series and binging on gingerbread lattes. I decided after spending more time at home than ever this year to treat myself to a new snuggly house robe. Miraculously as I opened up the ASOS New In page this ‘Cream Yeti Robe’ popped up. It was safe to say the robe was in my basket within seconds. I sized up for an oversized, comfy fit. This yeti robe is the ultimate relaxer, miles more luxurious than any dressing gown I’ve owned before. You could easily get away with wearing this robe a coat out too!

The trousers are the perfect length; having long legs is a blessing but a curse when trying to find trousers long enough. These trousers brush my ankle lengthening the leg.

THE CUTEST BUCKET HAT

This cream faux-fur jacket and cream ASOS faux-fur bucket hat are a dream match. The H&M cream jacket is incredibly thick, and the cropped arm length is super cute. The jacket has no collar, which is a unique style feature, I normally dislike no collar on a coat/jacket, but here it works. The jacket is only £34.99; however, it looks and feels much more luxurious. The concealed hook and eye fastening is an elegant feature. The ASOS bucket hat is so darling, I love the current bucket hat trend! Paired together the jacket and hat combo calls for a chilly winter day; which is a daily occurrence in the UK. I wore dotty tights, a velvet mini-skirt and thigh-high leather boots with the faux-fur pieces. I finalised the look with a genuine Burberry silk scarf; the beige and black tones tied the whole look together. A faux-fur moment!

MADDISON’S 2020 COAT!

If you’ve followed my blog since 2016 then you’ll know I search for a stand-out Winter coat each year. This year I held out for a while to find ‘the one’ I found so many coats uninspiring and incredibly boring this year, however this ASOS coat was the winner. I already own a red faux-fur coat, brown faux-fur coat and a cream faux-fur jacket, so this ASOS faux-fur black maxi coat is a flawless addition for my faux-fur addiction. The faux-fur black trench coat has collar, belt, back slit and tortoiseshell button features. The maxi length is elegant, striking and definitely keeps you warm. The waist belt draws in the oversized coat, adding femininity. I styled dotty tights and leather thigh-high boots with the coat. I feel fab when wearing this killer coat!

ELEPHANT GREY SHORTS

Elephant grey is officially my favourite colour. Move over black leather shorts, these shorts are so unique. The oversized fit and rigid faux-leather material makes the shorts appear and feel expensive. The tie-belt draws in the waist, making the shorts super flattering. I styled the look for a daytime occasion; with my Zara pussy bow organza knit, Mango cream boots and Gucci bag. The look can easily be styled for evening with a satin top and heels.

ASOS MIDI KNIT

As you all know, I LOVE a midi knit dress. A one-piece item that you can just throw on is a dream. This utterly gorgeous ASOS knit has a cream colour and is the perfect midi length. The bottom split and oversized sleeves are so stylish and add a bit of spice to the staple item. I adore cream in the Winter, it adds a bit of brightness to the otherwise dull British weather. Here I styled an oversized tan blazer over the dress. The thick knit dress is great for the milder Winter days, the blazer adds that needed extra warmth. I finalised the look with my Mango cream boots, ASOS gold chain necklace and chunky gold chain bracelet. J’adore a knit.
