Happy Thursday. I have never been someone who is good at hair. I can't even braid. The limit of my skills is curling my hair or platting. The current hair trend makes it easier to have cute hair without all the effort. The range of hair slides, scrunchies and scarves is amazing right now. Not to mention, all the EOYS's at the moment. Colette currently has 20% off site wide using the code SAVE20. Some of my favourites from Colette and other stores are below. The vintage vibes are incredible.
I have been searching for the perfect accessory for this season. I know when looking at all of the gorgeous designs from NYFW sky blue continually made appearances. When trying to find similar styles on my own, there were bags that just didn't suit the season. There were incredible shoes, but completely unaffordable. When I became an ambassador of Capitola watches I was super excited to find this faux velvet watch with (obviously my favourite) rose gold hardware. Everything in rose gold is always so much prettier, isn't it? Unlike the shoes I mentioned earlier, their watches are completely affordable! Yes Capitola's watches are cheaper than MVMT and Daniel Wellington, but with similar clean lines and classic styles. You can use MYVIOLETDELIGHTS15 to make them even cheaper again if you want too. What's more important is how can we style this?
There's nothing more exciting than fabulous new season pieces. Bags this season are all about elegant details and texture. The woven handbag trend has continued into larger, more structured pieces for those of you who are entering Spring. Faux animal print and a snakeskin texture adds the perfect detail to an Autumn look. As for colours black, nude and natural tones are an obvious choice, but for a pop of colour try sky blue or a bold yellow.
I hope you are having an incredible weekend. My favourite part about the weekend is that you can wear incredibly cute Summer pieces that you can't wear during the week. I know in 2016 I talked about balloon sleeves and puffy sleeves as a trend. They are back again this year, but like anything else bigger! No really, the sleeves are bigger this year. Whether you are just about to head into Spring or Autumn puffy sleeves are a must have for your transitional season wardrobe. Spring means you finally get to wear floral crops with puffy sleeves while Autumn means big sleeves making an elegant statement whilst layering. I have been waiting for some of the more affordable brands to begin stocking puffy sleeve pieces. Below I have some more affordable options with a few splurge pieces as well. Some are almost sold out, so I highly recommend getting in quickly.
It is that wonderful time of the year where everything feels magical (well, except for those of you who work in retail...sorry). New Years Eve is fast approaching and it is super important to have the perfect outfit to make you feel happy and confident to start the new year in. I had a couple of NYE pieces in my Festive Season Lookbook 2018, as well as, Christmas pieces if you also want to check those out. If you haven't sorted your NYE outfit yet I definitely suggest to find something ASAP before everything is sold out. *Edit: Dissh now has 20% off their dresses which may come in handy for you. Code: DRS20. Shop their dresses here.*
Happy Monday. You would think that all of the mid year sales would be over. However, Dissh is sharing their warehouse sale online and it is the biggest sale I have seen from them in a long time. Sales can feel a bit like a kid in a candy shop. It's so important though to not just choose fast fashion pieces and opt for styles you know you're going to love for a while. My favourite pieces are the copper dress above, blue satin jacket and the long-line fur coat. They're versatile, easy to style pieces.

I hope everyone has had an incredible weekend. On the weekend, let's be honest all we really want most of the time is jeans and a nice top. It makes comfy and cute happen, all tied up in a neat little bow. I found out recently PrettyLittleThing actually has a section on their site actually dedicated to this. You can check it out here.
Bodysuits always make outfits so much easier. You don't need to worry about awkward seams or heights, everything just falls together beautifully. For some contrast I have paired it with some light blue ripped jeans. I am obsessed with the tie sides of these jeans. So cute! The great part about pairing a bodysuit like this with a pair of high waisted jeans is, you can eat as much as you want for brunch or a girls lunch and it will cover it perfectly. Not to mention both pieces are so easy to wear on repeat. For a change in texture I've paired these pieces with a faux velvet belt with pearl detailing.
Shop the look at the bottom of this post. If you're more of a white shirt and jeans kind of a girl, this bodysuit also comes in white.
I hope you are all staying warm and having an amazing week. Now that it is starting to cool down I am so glad I can finally start wearing jeans and one shouldered pieces, especially since they are super comfy. This top makes a simple statement piece and are easily paired with high waisted jeans. The colour and one shouldered look create effortless style and easy to wear chic. The ribbed texture of this top as well means it is easy to dress up for a night out or dress down for a Sunday sesh. I paired this top with these jeans to coordinate the red and make the outfit flow nicely. I am loving the raw edge hem on these jeans. It's the little details that really make a look. They are only slightly cropped so you don't need to worry about freezing in Winter. If you prefer a much more monochrome look, both pieces also come in black. Shop this look and the alternative colours at the bottom of this post.
