Style December 23, 2016 0 Comments

But, as we all know eating is as much a part of the festivities so here are my top picks of comfortable party dresses, complete with elasticated waists, flattering shapes and frills that are oh-so-giving and will take you from meal time to dance floor.

Outfits Style October 23, 2016 10 Comments

  &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br /> I love autum, the cold nights, layering outfits and the fact that it is completely acceptable to wear all black outfits. However, there’s something about summery colours that I just can’t let go of. But who says we have to choose? play around with colours and layering like I’ve done here.

Some days I am in the mood to go full glam but other days, all I want to do is throw on a hoodie and be comfortable, but comfort does not have to mean sacrificing your style. Everyone has that favourite hoodie in their wardrobe, making an appearance after a long day or during lazy winter days. Hoodies should not be cast away as something that only makes an appearance when we’re binge watching something on Netflix but it could be something that you can wear any day, any time, no matter if it’s summer, spring or winter outside. I recently embraced wearing a hoodie and dressing down a lot more so I decided to put together some casual style tips to try an elevate an outfit on any lazy day.

The Block Heel

Outfits Style August 17, 2016 2 Comments
The block-heel has been the shoe of the moment for a long time now and its popularity does not appear to be faltering anytime soon. At 5’5, I am grateful for the extra inches that heels give me but as someone who wears heels all the time, I am thanking my lucky stars that sensible shoes are dominating the fashion world right now. From sneakers to block heels, the styles are just as practical as they are stylish. I am currently obsessed with the block heeled sandals, they are so refreshingly comfortable, versatile and perfect for summer. They work with a pair of frayed hem jeans or a summery shift dress (as I have styled it above) and they even work for office looks.
