Autumn is going to catch up with us quicker than we think, I’m sure of it! It’ll soon be September and time to pack away the sandals and get back into our boots. I’ve been loving some of the new in pieces on the high street at the moment and thought these 6 pieces would be perfect for the seasonal transition. They can all work together as well so they’re great if you’re a capsule wardrobe chick like I wish I was.
Super babe blogger and fashion queen Olivia Palermo was spotted at London Fashion Week this weekend wearing PORTS 1961 pre-spring 2017 shirt as part of this amazing outfit so I thought I’d whip up a quick get the look to show you how to get her look for a lot less cash!
First up, head to ASOS and pick up any of their amazing oversized white shirts, I love this Wood Wood Frankie Shirt with Striped Arms which is only £56.00 in the sale, it’s arm detail is really interesting and creates a cool accent to the outfit. Also from ASOS are these killer Public Desire Burgundy Shoes at only £29.99. Topshop saves the day as usual with these two statement pieces, firstly the Moto Fringe Hem Jeans for £42.00, I have a feeling she might actually be wearing these exact jeans and this Topshop Light Khaki Canvas Jacket, £40.00, is a great dupe for her casual jacket.
Personal style is one of those things I like to think I’ve had all my life. From my beloved emo stage to where I am today I think I’ve always had my own sense of style. I’m happy that I’m never going to be a cookie-cutter Instagram-famous Missguided-wearing (OK, I have some pieces from Missguided but you know the dresses I mean!) type of girl. I’m more likely going to be wearing something a little bit fun like a faux fur bag or trying my best to channel a minimalist Scandi look than a bodycon dress, sky high heels or the latest slogan t-shirt.
Hey Christmas vouchers, presents to exchange and mon-aaay! It’s Boxing Day, it’s time to spend that dollar and get some stuff you actually want. Let’s talk beauty bargains.
First up an absolute steal of three of Benefit’s amazing tinted lip balms, Posiebalm mini, Benebalm mini and Chachabalm mini in a super cute Benefit Lip Hydrator Trio for only £11.30! Next in line is this beautiful little Clarins 5 Minute Kit With BB Cream in Shade 02 which is £13.33 on Boots at the moment. You have the fab BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF25 in 02 Medium 15ml which I featured in this post (plot spoiler, I love it), there’s also the amazing Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 01 Rose Shimmer which is an awesome lip balm/gloss, the Be Long Mascara and a super cute tiny Blush Prodige 02 Soft Peach which is the perfect handbag size. Finally in the makeup stakes is the Smashbox Glosses To Go Light It Up Lip Gloss Set, also £13 from Boots and includes five shades; Bare Light, Orange Light, Fuchsia Light, Lilac Light and Ruby Light.
Recently, McArthur Glen East Midlands Designer Outlet invited me down to check out their awesome White Shirt Bar that’s been up and down the country at all of the designer outlets. Opened by Milly Mackintosh earlier in the month, (one of my style crushes), and showcasing all of the gorgeous shirts that Brooks Brothers have created, the White Shirt Bar is a pretty cool addition to any shopping trip.
This is my take on the Tailored Goth look from Topshop’s recent beauty tutorial. I created it with a few of the awesome Topshop beauty products, namely the amazing Matte Lip Bullet in Get Me Bodied which is a killer colour! I’m also wearing the Kajal Kohl Liner in Lucky 13 and the Matte Liner in Soot and the super cute rose gold Topshop Skull Choker.
Party season is a comin’ people! It’s time to get sparkly, sequinned up and sassy because no doubt you’re going to have all kinds of nights out, parties and get togethers to go to over the next couple of months. I’m not usually a really girly girl during the day, I live in trainers most of the time, but, I do love a little bit of sparkle when it comes to the festive period. Here are 6 of the best sequin pieces on the market right now, ranging from the pricey to the pocket-friendly!
I know it’s uncharacteristically warm for September but I’m really craving a temperature drop! I can’t wait to layer up with cosy scarves and knitwear and I always feel like I look nicer in the autumn and winter, style-wise. I’m much more comfortable when I’m wrapped up and I much prefer darker colours and thicker materials like leather and wool. Here’s my new season wish list. Come on weather, keep up!
A lot of people say that they don’t have time for working out or they ‘hate the gym’ or even that they’re just not good at exercise. The same people usually say how they’d love to have the motivation to do it or they’d love to find something they’re good at. It’s simply not true that you can’t be good at exercise and you can’t find something that you enjoy that will keep you fit and healthy. It’s 2016, there are so, so many ways of working out it’s incredible. You just need to find the workout that works for you!
It’s easy to get the ‘busy’ bug. It’s probably easier to drown in busy-ness than it is to effectively manage our time and properly achieve a work-life-gym-friends-blogging-actually having fun-balance. Well, it seems to be. Because we’re too busy to take a step back and effectively organise our life in order to improve it. This sucks but it seems to be the modern way. I’ve definitely been guilty of this myself.
