OOTD: Casual Style

I took these photos the other day in London. The weather was nice and I was in the mood for some outfit photos. I am loving the casual style look this summer. I find it dead comfy and so easy to style. It literally takes me minutes to put an outfit together, and as a busy mum of 2, every minute counts.

I need my outfits to be totally comfortable, but yet very stylish! The kids are on summer holidays for the next few weeks, so that means we are super busy, trying to make the most of what we have left of summer (weather permitting), and juggling all sorts. Life is incredibly busy at the moment, but I won’t have it any other way.

 

How to Rock the Casual Style Look

Here are 2 style tips I stick to –

 

Focus on the Accessories

Keep everything else cool, and focus on the accessories. In my case, I am drawing all the attention to my sandals and my sunnies and it works. For you to get the Casual Style look right, your accessories have to do the talking. So scarves, sunnies, hats, footwear, bags, should be the focus, and not the actual outfit. And not all at once. I see some people rocking their accessories collection all in 1 outfit. That is not a good look.

Stick to a maximum of 2 colours

For you to get the casual styling look right, you should stick to a maximum of 2 clothes (not counting black or white). Anything more would be a little too much for a casual look. I would also avoid colour blocking for a when it comes to nailing a casual style, and I rather opt for monochrome colours as they are safer and easier to style casual.

OOTD: A Summer Dress for July

This is the first outfit post of July, and it is all about the summer dress. I have been meaning to feature a July fashion outfit post in weeks but I have not had the time. I took these photos weeks ago, before our summer holiday, and then forgot all about them. Good I still have some days left in July to post them.

One thing I love about the summer season, apart from the holiday bit, is the summer fashion. I love the fact that I can rock my sandals and show off my legs. I live in dresses in the summer months. They are super stylish and very comfortable. When dealing with the heat wave, the last thing I need on is a pair of jeans, or anything else that would make me even more hot and sweaty. Light, airy summer dresses, like the black floral summer dress I have on, works for me.

Almost everything I have is an Oldie but Goldie, and has been featured on the blog before. The new bits are my handbag and my Fitbit Charge 2 bracelet. If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a bit now, you would know all about my love for handbags. And if you didn’t know, you now know! I love handbags a lot; I am always looking to add more to my collection, and this beauty right here is the newest addition. Another confession, I am also a huge fan of Michael Kors handbags. My fan girl bag collection is growing, and I love every one of them.

This gorgeous bag is the Michael Kors Scarlett Large Tote. It is a soft pink shade, which I think is so pretty, but it also comes in black.

I love the design and look of this bag. The gold-tone exterior hardware and hanging charm is just so beautiful. I am in love!

The Fitbit Charge 2 bracelet is also new. I got this some weeks ago, after my old Fitbit Flex broke. I prefer the look of this Charge 2, and I am hoping this lasts a lot longer than the Fitbit Flex.

Favourites Outfit Posts Mid Year Review

Where is 2017 running to? I can’t believe the month of June is almost over. I also can’t believe I haven’t published a single outfit post this month. I did try to post an outfit post at some point, but life got in the way, and I didn’t get to post any. I promise to make up for the gap in July, but for now, I leave with you my favourite outfit posts for the last 6 months.

 

A Beaded Black Dress

I wore this outfit earlier in the year, it is one of the best outfits I have worn this year. I love the Blue Vanilla beaded dress. It is a perfect fit, and there is something elegant about it. I also love the grey NEXT blazer. It gave the outfit a whole new look.

 

The Oversized Trend & the Petite Woman

This is another outfit I really like. I love the relaxed chic look. The highlight of the outfit is the Apricot Charcoal Sequin Cocoon Cardigan. I think it finishes off the look so beautifully.

 

Gucci Birthday Present

I love everything about this look. It is definitely at the top of my favourite outfits posts for 2017 so far. I love the Gucci bag and NEXT jumper. I also love the location; it was Milan and it was my birthday, a birthday I would never forget.

 

Calling the Shots

This outfit is another special one. I love the styling and the photos turned out so great. I would rock this look again. It is one of those looks that was just so easy to style.

 

Spring Fashion

Spring was a great fashion season on Fashion and Style Police, and this spring fashion outfit was the TRUTH! The Miss Selfridge leather jacket was the highlight of look.
