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.

CHECK SUITING

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! ❤

THE ULTIMATE BLAZER

A black blazer is an ESSENTIAL piece for any wardrobe. Always on trend, always chic! This H&M blazer has wide lapels, gold buttons and a flattering tailored fit. A classic look I have always loved is a white shirt dress with black accessories; here I added heart print tights, black court heels and the trendy blazer. Finally, a classic red lip and I’m out the door!

SLEEVE DRAMA

Bringing the drama! A statement blouse is a must-have piece in your wardrobe. This ASOS DESIGN smock shirt has a chic oversized fit, wrap front with tie fastening and stunning blouson sleeves. This piece works with almost any choice of bottoms, but I prefer combining the top with a plain block colour. Here I styled the blouse with a white denim mini-skirt and head-turning metallic gold Gucci platforms. Layer an autumnal coat to counteract the chilly wind.

BEIGE BERET

AW/21 fashion is finally back! Move over sweatpants and relax-wear, I am here for Parisian Chic. Brown/Beige/Camel are all trending shades. Faux-leather is extremely on trend this season; this faux-leather pleated skirt in the colour ‘whiskey’ is an all round statement piece. The layered pleat has a luxurious look, complimented perfectly by the oversized white poplin shirt with neck tie; the most perfect piece. Accessorising is one of my favourite aspects of Autumnal styling; my Gucci bag is my go-to and the wool camel beret is extremely en-vogue this season. Zara beige leather boots finish the look.

PARTY GLAM

Bottomless brunch to a classy cocktail evening; the return of evening style. The exhilaration of trying booking the best restaurant/bar around is a stress that I can definitely deal with! Peeling myself out of relax gear and into this dress of dreams is a revelation. This Zara metallic silver cowl neck number is a keeper! The loose fit compliments the ‘mini’ length, while the cowl neck adds a fashionable twist. The low cowl effect and tie neck creates drama in the back. Paired with my Gucci GG gold heeled loafer and gold falling leaf earrings the look is complete. Now…PASS THE CHAMPAGNE!

TURN IT UP!

Turn it up! An oversized turn-up gives a fashionable edge – a look that I am here for! These Zara straight-leg camel trousers with the wide turn-up hem fit like a glove. A piece that can be styled for work, brunch, lunch…the lot! I’m still grasping on to white pieces as the transitional fashion season edges in; this broderie backless top from Lost Ink is to-die-for. The puff sleeve and bow necktie are fab details. My go-to early-autumnal colour is beige; perfect with white, cream or black. While the weather has been grey for as many days as I can remember, at least the rain is currently at bay – although I may have just jinxed that one… While the weather behaves I am getting as much wear out of my mules as possible – the biggest footwear trend of 2021. Get your turn-up on!

THE BIKINI OF DREAMS

August is bringing us yet another heatwave, so get your bikinis at the ready! H&M is killing the game with their fashion right now…especially on the bikini front. Although a simple bikini style can be stunning, I LOVE a unique show stopping style. This bandeau style ruffled bikini top is such a flattering and unique shape. The bikini bottoms have a figure flatting V dip. Big floppy straw hats are a VIBE and create an extra chic beach look. This Zara oversized straw hat is a 10/10. Now…get me to the beach.
