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!

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!

TENNIS PLAY

The tennis skirt style has made a MAJOR come-back. Think circa 2012 American Apparel Tumblr fashion; the tennis skirt stormed through and now its back. 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.

MIDAXI STYLE

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. 

Blue and white stripe is a favourite of mine in the warmer months; it screams Summer holiday. The statement oversized cuff, combined with the white tie-belt detailing creates the beautiful Mary Poppins esque style! I styled the dress with tan, crocodile print courts to complete the look.

WORK ATIRE

Work attire can be the hardest to style. Trying to find a balance between professionalism and fashionability is a pretty difficult task. Midi lengths are my go-to for work; sophistication and comfort is key. This Zara black midi skirt with gold button detailing is a perfect piece for work, but can be styled for an evening look. 

Step 1 the midi skirt complete. Step 2 take a classic white shirt, but make it fashion. The organza material and statement pocket additions of this Zara shirt turns a traditional white cotton style into a chic must-have piece.

Either black mules, black sandals or black kitten heels complete the look.
