Supporting small businesses is more important now than ever before. In the current unprecedented times everyone is struggling more than normal; considering a locally sourced option is a great idea. If you have friends and family who love contemporary homeware, notebooks and accessories this gift guide is for you.
Powerful pink, oversized puff sleeve and a unique neckline; this top is the perfect sassy style. Bubblegum pink looks insane against white, here I styled the top with white shorts to minimise distraction from the gorgeous piece. The cropped length combined with the oversized sleeve is extremely flattering. The neckline has fastenings if wanted, but here I wore the top undone for a more casual look. Tan braid mules look incredible against the popping pink and white.
Green is just divine, especially this ivy green embroidered dress. The one shoulder accent against the midi length and waist belt is a unique combination. The flared skirt and chest frill and off-white embroidery pattern are beautiful details. I wore gold tie-ankle shoes, which tie in perfectly against the green. A dress of dreams.
I just can’t get enough of Zara at the moment! I have MANY more blogs to come with mostly Zara clothing, I’m just obsessed. Now, since I was a little girl I have LOVED a baby blue and pink colour mix; it stems from a little light blue summer top with pink flowers that I wore when I was younger, I felt so cool when I wore it (bless lil Mads). Forward 10 years and here I am sporting a Zara baby blue and pink floral summer dress. The ruched bodice and frill detailing are so precious, while the mini length and heart neckline adds a sprinkle of sass. Not only is does the ruching give the dress ample stretch and fits tight to my best features, but it also adds great detailing. Ideal for lunching and brunching or for a Summer cocktail. I wore off-white heeled sandals here, but tan or white sliders would look perfect too.
I always love pink, but this bubblegum pink shade is extra beautiful. This ASOS dress combines the bubblegum pink with satin to create the most darling design. The midi length, loose flowing skirt, long sleeve, unique neckline, cut out back and bow tie back feature forms a gorgeous aesthetic. The distinctive cowl neck and layered shoulder fabric gives a vintage look to the modern dress. I adore a bow as you all know! This oversized bow tie gives a decorative layer to the plain design. White tie-ankle sandals and a blush make-up look complete the pretty in pink vibe.
You cannot go wrong with a powerful red suit. Female suiting is a favourite style of mine, but I rarely find suit trousers that fit correctly or look long enough. This OhPolly suit is a head turner, the cropped blazer length, flared leg and bright red colour make a flawless co-ord. I wore tan Stradivarius braided mules with the suit to give a neutral contrast against the popping red.
Cocktail night pending! Since the lockdown has eased I haven’t yet grabbed myself a cocktail but…I have planned an outfit for when the time comes. I cannot tell you how long I have been searching for the perfect straight jean. All I know is, it’s been a LONG search. Trying on jeans has to be the WORST item to haul on and off, I’ve been to countless stores even LEVI’S, but I had no luck. On a whim I ordered these River Island straight denim jeans from ASOS. Finally, I had found a pair that fit the leg well, however the waist was too big. Problem solved with my trusty double-sided red/black Coach belt.
With the jean and belt sorted I knew I wanted a dressy yet classy top. This OhPolly cropped blazer top is an eye-catching piece. The shoulder pads and cropped length combine to give a flattering shape. I love the pristine, crisp white against the casual denim. I matched the red leather belt with the Topshop saddle bag and Too Faced matte red lip. Stradivarius tan braided mules finish the look.
The perfect green jean! This outfit is Zara from head-to-toe. Green is a great summer colour; these jeans are a great alternative to the classic blue denim. Green and white is a late-summer must. These jeans are a great item to bag right now, summer will begin to draw out and they’re an ideal more covered option. The white ruched, bardot, cross-over top has an idyllic cropped length to cut in at the waist, which looks super flattering. Accessorised with the canvas grab bag with brown leather edging and brown leather sliders with pearl décor, the classy look is complete.
