This navy shorts power suit is a boss look. The cropped style blazer is a la mode for 2021, while the military style metal buttons is a timeless aesthetic. The lapel collar and double breasted fastening is mega stylish, while the navy Bermuda shorts with a side zip fastening gives a flawless front design. Tan heeled sandals compliment the sophisticated style.
Elephant grey is officially my favourite colour. Move over black leather shorts, these shorts are so unique. The oversized fit and rigid faux-leather material makes the shorts appear and feel expensive. The tie-belt draws in the waist, making the shorts super flattering. I styled the look for a daytime occasion; with my Zara pussy bow organza knit, Mango cream boots and Gucci bag. The look can easily be styled for evening with a satin top and heels.

Who doesn’t love a neutral? Mixing white with camel/sandy tones is a favourite colour combo of mine for the Summer months. As you all know I am a detail addict, whether it be voluminous sleeves or creative collar. This camel H&M midi shirt dress is a fantastic piece from Spring to Autumn. The midi length and shirt collar combined with the oversized nature of the dress screams for a statement belt to clinch in the waist. Here I added the Zara jute, knot belt in-keeping with the neutral vibe. This look would work with stylish, white chunky sneakers, but here I styled the look with Primark off-white ankle-tie sandals adding sophistication. I would wear this for an afternoon tea or glam brunch with my girls.
The second outfit: Zara cream shorts with turn-ups, a sandy H&M puff-sleeve blouse, the Zara jute knot belt and Primark tie-ankle sandals. The short + shirt combo, accessorised with the belt has an elegant, yet playful style. I finished both looks with my Mango gold chain, camel bag and Kate Spade bangle. You will never go wrong with a neutral style!

If you follow my blog, then you will know that I am obsessed with flamboyant and quirky designs. Once I had ordered this Zara top, it was popping up all over my Instagram feed, the most trending item right now. The ribbed, knit base in a sage green colour is beautiful in itself, but the tops main draw is its organza, flower shoulder feature. The cropped fit makes it an impeccable summer staple. Here I styled the top with white Zara jeans, sage green Topshop heels and the Zara jute knot belt. This summer season style; sage green, is one to watch.

T-shirt dresses are the definition of comfy. There’s nothing I love more than flinging on a one-item outfit that looks chic and slick. This midi t-shirt dress is the ultimate Spring piece, the short puff sleeves with bow tie, the midi length with side slits and the simple round neck fashion a simple yet effective piece. The material is lightweight perfect for the warmer days, however on a chillier day you could layer a shirt or thin jumper underneath. A great way to dress up a t-shirt dress is to add an organza shirt with pussy-bow and heeled sandals. Here I styled the look casually with my shoe of the month; my converse boots. The matching off-white colours go together seamlessly. I purchased the t-shirt dress in a size-down for a snug fit; the waist tightens in just the right place. For an oversized fit lover this is the dress for you.

The times we are living in are incredibly uncertain and dystopian. In light of these recent events, once again I would like to give my thanks and admiration for the NHS for their positivity and unbelievable hard-work, as well as the bravery of all Key-Workers. Whilst we are all in lockdown loungewear is a MUST! In an attempt to reduce stress on delivery drivers and fashion companies all of these looks are pieces I already own.
Who doesn’t love loungewear? Victoria’s Secret and Ralph Lauren are my favourites when sourcing relaxers. I admit that I am totally and utterly addicted to purchasing loungewear; I am easily swayed by a comfy looking sweat. Ralph Lauren is the priciest, however the RL pieces that I have acquired are high quality and long lasting – timeless and classic. I adore navy, grey and pale pink colour ways – too cute, while khaki and camel are staple colours for lounging around. With a range of sweatshirts, sweat-shorts, joggers, oversized T’s and fluffy sliders/socks you have free range mix & match.
I purchased this Ralph Lauren sweatshirt in off-white, red and navy in an outlet store. The aesthetically pleasing design tastefully printed with the polo logo and pony player emblem is completely Maddison style; preppy American. The lining is super soft, while the side slits and elongated back panel create a cool style. Despite the substantial £80 price tag – even at the reduced price – this purchase is a loungewear staple and will last season after season. I paired the sweatshirt with Victoria’s Secret grey sweat-shorts. The shorts are super comfortable with a tie-waist. I love the copper logo accents. Grey fluffy sliders finish the look.
In 2019 I worked as Buying Assistant at Ralph Lauren for a month-long internship. I very luckily was invited to help at the sample-sale; this entire outfit is sourced from the sample-sale. The navy-fleece sweatshirt is a Ralph Lauren staple; if you’re going to splash-out on loungewear I highly recommend a basic RL sweatshirt; they’re super casual and long-lasting. I adore a navy, white and red combination. These joggers are preppy and loud. The navy and red stripes are stylish and slick, while the Polo logo and American flag designs intertwine seamlessly. I’ll let you in on a secret…this whole outfit is menswear! Menswear always fits oversized, so steal your brother’s/dad’s/boyfriend’s clothes for ultimate cosiness. Queen of chilly feet; the navy socks with red pony player crest are also Ralph staples and finish the look perfectly and provide warmth.
Military influenced designs are so chic, I’ve always been a fan. This khaki sweatshirt combines perfectly with the white shorts. The US flag & U.S Airforce badges, alongside the back print combine to generate a striking design. I bought this Topshop sweatshirt about 5 years ago and I still wear it to this day. I bought the shorts in a Victoria’s Secret sale also 5 years ago. The VS sale is not one to be missed, I have bought some incredibly beautiful pieces for a fraction of the original price. The white shorts are a comfortable, cheeky fit with a silver sparkly angel wing emblem. The best feature – pockets.
New York was the best city break of my life! During the entire trip I was searching for the perfect souvenir to remember my first visit. The tourist shops were incredibly overpriced and so tasteless. I was gutted that I was leaving without a memento until I got to JFK airport. They had a mini Victoria’s Secret store with a sale section; in which I spied the attractive baby pink sweatshirt with a glittery NEW YORK printed across the middle. BINGO! I looked at the label in anticipation, ready for potential disappointment as VS sweatshirts can be up to $60…there was no price. Taking the sweatshirt to the till I asked the price and stood there dumbfounded as the assistant informed me that the price was just $10! It is one of my favourite purchases ever. The sweat is an impeccable duo to the VS sleep-shorts that I bought in the sale. The grey ribbed design with matching baby pink frills makes a super cute short, SO COMFY too! Long grey socks finalise the cheeky look. Oh – and a fluffy grey bunny eye mask is ESSENTIAL for day-naps!
I love green. Having bright green eyes, green clothing items make my eyes pop! This playful ‘Victoria’s Secret Pink’ green velour co-ord set is sassy and cosy. The matching set consisting of shorts and a cropped hoodie is a go-to when relaxing. Pink clothing is always high quality visually and by-feel. Definitely worth the price.
You cannot go wrong with a one-piece wonder. What is more comfortable than a GIANT T. This unisex, humongous, oversized Levi’s T-shirt is my favourite throw-on item. I bought it at a discount Levi’s store, I loved the over-sized style and Levi’s is always a classic. The quality is exceptional as always; the cotton is super thick. Any Levi’s is quality and eternal. I finished the look with F&F pink fluffy socks.
Joggers are a must-have item. A casual staple! These Zara camel joggers are a comfy fit and super stylish. The cuffed ankle and lightweight camel material are perfect for Spring. I paired the joggers with a matching camel H&M hoodie. I very often style hoodies and sweatshirts tucked-up. Finishing the look with pink fluffy sliders I am ready to relax.
I am such a sucker for pjs, especially striped ones! As soon as I spy a super cute set of nightwear I’m drawn to it. Gilly Hicks used to be one of my favourite stores, but since they downsized I hadn’t seen anything from the brand for a while. Recently my love for GH was reignited as I was browsing in Holister in London. A blue and white stripe will ALWAYS be a classic, you can never go wrong with it. One of my favourite prints, combined with the SUPER flattering cut of GH nightwear I couldn’t resist. The ribbon tie, white edging and Gilly Hicks logo are the perfect details, making an irresistible set. I opted for a sassy short style and the matching top which I tied to create a crop. Cute or what?!

Frill shorts are a must have for your Summer wardrobe this year; this ASOS red pair is just perfect. The frill short style is particularly flattering and can spice up a white crochet top. Crochet is huge this year in fashion, Pretty Little Thing have killed it with this white cropped crochet top with tiered frill statement sleeves; the ultimate vacation piece. The striking block red of the shorts adds a pop of bold colour, complimentary against a summer glow. Wear with a red lip and tan accessories to create an impeccable look. Here I’m wearing ‘Lady Balls’ by Too Faced; the finest red matte lip cream and Valentino inspired sandals with gold studs; a killer yet comfy shoe. Finally, paired with my classic Zara frilly bucket bag and white ASOS tassel earrings the outfit is complete. The look is an essential to achieve the hot ‘vacay’ aesthetic.
