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.
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!
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.
I’ve always dreamed of owning a delectable gown that I could pair with Autumn knits or Spring pieces. While staycationing in Wells earlier this year I spied this incredibly distinctive One Hundred Stars printed duster coat in a small boutique. I’d never heard of the brand, however many celebrities including Nigella are fellow fans. This delicate ‘Iris Grey Gown’ is a piece from One Hundred Stars collaboration with KEW Royal Botanic Gardens. As described on the website ‘the Gown is made from a custom blend of modal and viscose which creates a silky-smooth lightweight material while having a more sustainable impact on the environment.’ Not only did I purchase the gown from a local store, promoting supporting small businesses, the piece itself has sustainable features; two reasons why I adore the piece even more. It was an investment piece at £75; I think it is essential to build up a wardrobe of pieces that you will keep for life. A stunningly timeless piece with unique dusty pink, green and slate grey colouring. The elegant hang and silky feel of the material is everything you would desire in a designer piece. The block colour slate grey waist belt and collar brings the colours together effectively. Here I styled the gown over a Zara cream midi knit skirt, beige top, with my signature Mango fashion wellies. I cinched in the waist with my tan leather Zara belt for a more everyday look. I am totally in love with this design.
Layering is a trend to adopt for AW/20. Covid-19 has limited social plans and I’m definitely not the only one who has new summer items that I never got to wear. Layering can eradicate the issue of being too cold but can also give a bold and sassy aesthetic. Here I styled my Zara beige maxi ruffle dress with a white Zara statement sleeve t-shirt. The items work so well together and paired together make them suitable for the time of year, especially with a jacket thrown on. The t-shirt under dress look also adds a casual vibe to the look. I wore my cream Mango boots and statement gold chain to accessorise.
I adore wearing cream in the transitional period. This H&M cream sweatshirt dress with fluted hem is an ESSENTIAL casual item for this AW/20. Everything about this dress is charming; the colour, oversized fit and fluted bottom, all of which make the design refreshing. I find dresses incredibly comfy, this one is especially cosy due to the sweatshirt material. I accessorised the dress with my ASOS chunky gold chain necklace and bracelet to add décor to the darling aesthetic. Of course, yet again…I styled the look with my Mango cream leather fashion wellies for a monochrome colour scheme.
This H&M cream NASA jogger set is a fresh, uncomplicated Autumn co-ord. The oversized NASA logo joggers with ankle cuff and waist tie are so current and comfy. The matching cropped NASA logo sweatshirt with hood, waist tie and black leather toggles is super cosy, and the cropped length is so flattering. I paired my Mango cream leather fashion wellies with the outfit; I adore a tonal look. This fit is made for coffee dates and chilling with friends.

2. MADDISON’S FOUR WAYS TO STAY POSITIVE IN THIS UNCERTAIN TIME!
‘ANNA has been taught that virtue is the path to God. But on her eighteenth birthday she defies her Mamma’s rules and visits Florida’s biggest theme park.
She has never been allowed to go – so why, when she arrives, does everything seem so familiar? And is there a connection to the mysterious letter she receives on the same day?
ROSIE has grown up in the shadow of the missing sister she barely remembers, her family fractured by years of searching without leads. Now, on the fifteenth anniversary of her sister’s disappearance, the media circus resumes in full flow, and Rosie vows to uncover the truth.
But will she find the answer before it tears her family apart?’
I could not put this book down. I read it within a week which is unheard of for me! Whilst studying at university we are required to read massive amounts for our course, therefore I never sought relaxation via reading. However, when my Mumma recommended this book I could not put it down. The whole concept is absolutely genius. Buy it now to reduce your quarantine blues!
I have the most varied music taste of anyone I know. I listen to a range of artists from Dua Lipa, PARTYNEXTDOOR and Beyoncé to Elvis, WHAM and Elton John. I love both modern music and classic bangers! My favourite song this month is Woman by John Lennon. This song has an extremely sweet muse; Lennon wrote this song as an ode to his wife Yoko Ono. The relaxed vibes and adorable meaning create a beautiful tune. Have a listen!
8. MADDISON’S FILM OF THE MONTH
MUMMA MIA: HERE WE GO AGAIN
While we are all stuck indoors, why not pretend we are in the Greek Island? Although many tutt at Mumma Mia I absolutely adore the films, especially the second one! The songs, dances and visuals make me feel excited for the future when we can travel and roam freely again. The fashion in this film is stunning and as for Lily James…well she’s pure perfection! The ultimate feel-good film.
9. MADDISON’S ACTIVITY OF THE MONTH

I love socialising with my friends and while sadly this isolation period has halted in-person gatherings, I have been catching up with my besties via Facetime! This weekend book a Facetime Date with your pals and pop open the fizz or pour a gin for a Facetime O’Clock! Why not dress up for the occasion?!
Forget hot pink…pink is TOTALLY HOT! The most daring colour is a hit for the AW18 season. People tend to avoid bright colours for the fear of looking garish or standing out too much, well I say go for it! This delectable rose pink silk shirt from mango at only £30 was a no brainer for my bank account, it was mine without question. The stunning shine of the shirt can be complimented with a matte white leather skirt and stiletto heels – as styled here – or played down with white culottes and a pretty pump. The lightweight flow of the shirt makes it perfect to tuck and the shade couldn’t be more beautiful. This look can be carried right through to SS19 so it’s a keeper.
Looking toward Winter – which is just around the corner – this red fur coat on Mango online caught my eye. Despite the hefty price, my inner Jack Frost was calling for this key piece and with red being this Winter’s hottest colour I couldn’t resist. I’ve always been a huge fan of red especially paired with military style accessories. Here I styled the fur with leather look leggings, a thin black jumper with pearl cuff detail, cream and black patent boots and a black military style cap. Military chic is just so stylish and very easy to achieve, especially with Winter fashion. Layering is my favourite aspect of Winter fashion, it enables any outfit to look fashionable. The coat is high quality; the faux fur is luxuriously soft, the crystal embellishment adds decor to the plain red surface, while the oversized lapel adds a dramatic neckline. The beauty of a faux fur coat is that it can be dressed up with all black à la 1950‘s Starlet or just simply with jeans for a relaxed but warm Winter’s day. Bring on the chill ….
