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! ❤
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!
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.
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.
The biggest trend for summer 2021 – crop tops and blazers…the ultimate going out look! As lockdown eases and we can be reunited with our friends (outdoors at first) a jacket is a MUST! A chic blazer is an essential piece that you need to have in your wardrobe. The Mango green faux leather trousers fit like a glove, they fit tightly to the waist and loosely to the leg. The cream and sage green tones are perfect for Spring. I accessorised with a gold chain belt and oversized gold square earrings to spice up the aesthetic. Here I styled the look with my cream chunky Mango boots for a relaxed vibe, but heeled sandals or mules would look fab too!
ASOS is killing the game with their dressed-down looks. Loungewear to wear out is HOT right now! The pandemic has allowed many to have a PJ day everyday and most are not ready to get out of that any time soon; the perfect solution is loungewear that can be worn out. This cream sweat mini dress with a high zip neckline and ribbed effect is where comfort meets cool. Paired with my favourite cream Mango boots the look is a relaxed winner!
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!
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!
