No wardrobe is complete without basics. The basics you chose for your wardrobe need to translate perfectly with the change of seasons and styles. When I'm looking for pieces for my wardrobe I always ask myself how many times I think I'll wear it and how long I think it will last. Basics are usually worn even more than your typical pieces. I don't know about you, but I don't want something that is going to fall apart in two months. At the same time I also want it to be affordable. A couple of weeks ago I found two tops from Dissh (not an ad).
This top is the perfect elevated basic. The off the shoulder look, ribbed fabric and extra detailing makes sure my outfits never look boring. Not to mention it pairs perfectly with black strappy heels. As the fabric is black it means it will be a versatile and timeless piece. I've linked both of these tops in a variety of colours at the bottom of this post.
The second top is also a ribbed fabric but this time in cream. It has a gorgeous necklace that pairs easily with any shorter style of necklace. I personally think bold gold jewellery with this top will create a signature look. The split cuffs are another favourite of this piece. It creates subtle detailing for any look.
Have a wonderful week!
I hope you are all having a great start to the week and are staying safe. Today's look is all about contrast. If you've known me for a while you'll know my favourite styling always includes contrast. When you're determining what pieces to style your main piece with, in this look it's the patterned pants, you look for the least prominent colour and bring that colour out. In this look the least prominent colour is obviously white. Using this colour I have based the rest of the look, pairing it with a simple knitted crop and white runners. As most of the detail is in the pants you can add statement jewellery. If the top was patterned instead of the pants it would appear as if there was too much going on, but because there's a break in the look with the white crop statement jewellery makes the outfit appear more put together.
The key to patterned look? Pair pieces using the least prominent colour in the pattern and separate your statement pieces. These pants honestly favourite new purchase. They're so fun and they make a statement. I can't wait to wear them again. Shop the look and some gorgeous patterned pieces at the bottom of this post.
I hope you are all staying safe. Today I am bringing you some Autumn outfit inspiration using three beautiful trends this season. In my last post I wrote about the up and coming trend of leather and this trend prediction has delivered. Let's be honest though, when do they not? This look is all about texture and adding a pop of colour.
I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. As we move into the cooler months it's time to take some notes from Fashion Month. One of the main trends we saw this season was leather with some vinyl. Not just as biker jackets or bags, but more unexpected pieces like trench coats and high neck long sleeved tops. I will be honest, faux leather is a lot more accessible and wearable than vinyl.
If your comfort zone with faux leather is usually restricted to a leather jacket, I highly recommend you try something slightly out of your comfort zone. Only just slightly. It will help create an illusion of a more put together look. It doesn't have to be over the top. Try adding a beige leather skirt or some black paper bag shorts like the ones in this post. If you're comfortable with bolder styling, run with it! Go wild! Try adding some leather slightly flared pants, a maroon trench coat or white shorts. My favourite piece I really want to get my hands on though looks like it should have been on Friends, a black leather dress.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
I was looking on Peppermayo a couple of weeks ago and found a dress that I knew would be perfect for Autumn or Spring. I couldn't decide between the beige or the brown. That night I went back on the site to find that they were sold out. Like any determined shopper I began to search on multiple different sites like The Iconic, Verge Girl, Princess Polly and Lioness. They were all sold out! Even Lioness the brand whose design it was had already sold out of their pre-sale. Highly disappointed, I decided it was time to part ways with the hope of buying this gorgeous design. A week later and some stores have finally started restocking it! I have done the sizing search for you and some other alternative colours as well.
Autumn has begun and it is time break the rules for these seasons. Are you ready? In Summer we started to see lots of pastel greens and purples with a wave of beige. It going to be the most 2000s inspired Autumn and Spring we have seen yet. These colours seem to be transitioning perfectly for Autumn and Spring. Not to mention the 50 shades of brown which is about to take over the Autumn vibe for 2020. Say hello to pastel knits, blazers and co-ords.
My key styling suggestions for this season is pairing pastel purple with pastel green prints. Don’t be afraid to wear a lighter shades, complimented by Autumn fabrics. My second styling tip is something I have been obsessing over for the last few weeks is beige with a warm toned brown pieces.
The 14th of February is fast approaching. This year Valentine's Day is a Friday. It's the perfect excuse for girl's night, date night or even a day to dress up and feel good showing everyone the amazing queen you are. I have put together some of my favourite Valentine's Day themed pieces. My ultimate piece below is a stunning red dress, with pockets. Yes, I said pockets! Honestly there nothing cuter than a fuller skirt dress with pockets. I am also adoring the gorgeous crop embellished with roses. The following stores also have sales at the moment.

The weather has finally warmed up and it is time to wear cute crops and add some bolder Summer tones. The top, shorts and slides are all new additions to my wardrobe. I fell in love with the natural vibe of the cropped button up. It has been perfect for days at the beach. You may have already spotted me wearing it to the beach over on Instagram. The orange shorts make an excellent pop of colour to balance out the popular trend of neutrals this Summer. How good does the colour look?! Shop the look at the bottom of this post. There are some similar styles as well as alternatives with different price points. My favourite gold coin necklace is also on sale for $5.00 below, which is definitely worth a look.
Headbands not just a pretty accessory, it is an avenue for the illusion of a well put together outfit. The trends this season provide a sense of regal taste and stylish expression. It is undeniable headbands are all about making a statement for SS19 and AW19/20. Jewelled headbands are not a new trend, however, they now display much larger jewels and copious amounts of embellishments. Knotted/turban headbands continue to appear with bolder sizes, colours and patterns. One of my favourites perhaps is the more petite style of knotted headbands delicately adorned with small pearls. Some of my favourites of the pearl style are from Divine Avenue and there are so many different colours to choose from. The headbands themselves have also become larger. Padded headbands provide a more polished look. I will be completely honest and say padded headbands are not to my taste, however, if you are loving the trend I have also added some options below.
