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.
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring finally and it is time to transition your wardrobe. There are so many gorgeous neutral pieces popping up ready for Summer. I am calling it now neutrals will be one of the biggest trends of the SS19 season. Do you remember how popular black and white feeds were on Instagram? Well neutral ones are showing up everywhere.

If you know me, you'll know how much I love Disney. I have been incredibly excited about all of the live action versions that Disney has created and are coming soon. Mink Pink has actually put together a Lion King collection. They are so beautiful and just make my heart so happy! There are a lot more pieces than I have included in this post, but these are my favourites. Also hint, hint family members these might make a great birthday present haha. My favourite is definitely the best prepared tee at the top of this post, but I'll admit the grey sweater below is so damn cute too!
