' That Gingham'

Hello my lovelies! I hope you are all doing great! Today’s share is all about 'GINGHAM'!. A quintessential summer time check and one of this seasons most loved trends.

I have been wearing this dress non- stop and can you blame me?! I just love the loose fit and bell sleeve detail which gives a fresher take to the gingham trend. I wore it with my Topshop slip- ins, bucket bag and finished my look with my bowler hat.

Seriously!, when talking weekend basics or a beach day outfit, hands down! This is my go-to. You can probably still grab this dress in the zara sale. Actually! my whole outfit is only sale lol!. Don’t you just hate it when you buy something full price then after you wear it you find its on sale!!?!! Ergg!! Nevermind! Such is life!

Monochrome 'Day to Night'!

Monochrome 'Day to Night'!

With our so called summer in play and it’s bipolar tendencies never-ending!. I'm  left with no choice but cope with these chilly mornings and evenings, hence the need for light layering but  only with the right type of silhouettes and fabric blends.

With a busy day’s schedule ahead I went for an easy ‘day to night’ look. Black is not my typical go-to when hot, lest I want total dis-comfort!. So.. to make it work! I wore a loose fit ruffled jumpsuit in a tailored crepe fabric. I then wore my crisp white blazer for a slight yet minimal contrast. To finish, I went for my suede bow sliders and my bucket bag which I just can't get enough off!

Fur Sliders!

Fur Sliders!

It’s been a while my lovelies so first, let’s catch up! How have you all been? How's life? What have you been upto?.. As for me?! to say the least! I’ve been rushed off my feet with work, life and everything in between and there is no sign of it slowing down any time soon so I'm really trying to 'work smart' rather than 'work hard', or I'll just end up being reactive to my day to days rather than being proactive! 

With that said, a new season is in full swing and I'm enjoying the fact I don’t have to walk around warmly clad in layers. You'd think my whole closet would then transition, but I refuse to shy away from my love for these fur sliders, 'my Gucci dupes'.

These babies are so comfy, and with these chilly evenings and mornings I love the fact they can pass for a summery shoe and still keep my feet warm.

I opted to wear them with my embroidered shirt and some plain denim ripped jeans for a simple casual look! Can I just stress how much I love 'a slight off the shoulder' anything! Have you guys seen the 'Self-portrait Collection'? Seriously the cut and precision of their dresses and tops are so dribble worthy! So, till I own one! I will improvise like so and so can you. Just unbutton a few and pull it over your shoulder and play around with the fit. Pin it, belt it or just leave it like I did, just don’t let your bra strap show. See you on the next post!

Summer Essentials 'The Boater Hat'!

Summer Essentials 'The Boater Hat'!

Hello my lovelies, I hope you’re all doing great!.. Sadly, here in London, things haven’t really been pleasant, to say the least!. From last weeks terrorist attacks to a week filled with rain, wind and cold shivers, and now the ‘election debacle’, I say ‘London living totally sucks right about now, but we will push through with our heads up’!.

So as we await those sporadic sunny days which naturally lifts up everyone’s mood, or start holiday prepping, I have to talk about this essential ‘ the straw hat’, an accessory every girl/bloggers needs!. These hats are meticulously crafted, giving comfort, ventilation and total chicness. Trust me!- you will thank me later. I got mine from H&M last summer.

Now, before you go grab your preferred style, you want to get value for your money, so go for one with thinner straws and tighter weaves. Typical Me right!- I have a thing for detail and I just can’t help myself,  but the truth is you end up getting more wear and a gorgeous smooth texture, which is a win all round! My fave type of straw hat is the ‘ boater’ I love the firm brim crown, and with the straw plaits done thinly and tightly they give off a structured nautical vibe which I love. Be sure to check my ‘ Get this look ’ at the end of the post so see my shop picks.
