OOTD: Lace in Peplum

UK Fashion Blogger Picture

 

Thank God the weekend is here at last, and I can show off this outfit of the day aka ootd: lace in peplum. This week has been so hard. I am extremely happy today is Saturday and I get to put my feet up. You have no idea how excited I am. It has been an extremely busy week with me juggling my life, blog and my freelance jobs. I am thankful to be this busy but I think I need to schedule in some proper ‘me’ time so I don’t breakdown, lol.

The thing about working for yourself is if you do not know where to draw the line, you will be working every minute you are awake, and I mean serious working – the fastest way to collapse….

I have decided to start taking my wellbeing a little more seriously, for the sake of my health and my career. I am not useful to anyone if I fall ill so easy does it going forward. I am going to relax a little and find some time to unwind without any gadget around me, like a holiday digital detox. So no laptops, phones, tablets or camera. I may schedule that for this weekend at some point, so don’t be too surprised if no new post is uploaded until Monday.

Enough of me moaning, back to the fun stuff now, I wore this outfit some days ago. The sandals and top are new wardrobe additions, and I adore them both.

The pink crochet lace peplum top is an excellent fit. I love the lace design and the pink colour is fab. It is a chic piece. I love the fact that I can style it in various ways.

The khaki tie-up suede block heel sandals is also fabulous. I love the tie-up design and the gold accent heel, which is a perfect height for me. The khaki colour is also pretty and new colour in my wardrobe. I can see myself rocking these two for many years to come.

Let Your Beachwear Do The Talking

The holiday season is here and the beach is calling. I have a beach holiday planned for later in the year but I know many people are lying on a beach somewhere (or planning to) soaking in the sun and tanning up. So I thought a beachwear post would be timely.

Here are some beachwear hacks you should remember this season:

 

Remember There Are Tankinis

When we say beachwear, many people automatically think of a bikini, forgetting there are many others. If you do not like your belly area, or you do not feel comfortable rocking a bikini, remember there are 1 pieces and tankinis.

Go for Quality

I like to invest in the best when it comes to beachwear because I hardly ever buy them. So when I do, I go for quality pieces and I make sure I have a couple of them every time. I currently have 4 pieces for different uses, which I think is a good number to have.

 

Choose the Right Beachwear for your Body

Different beachwears suit different body types and shapes, so make sure you have the right piece for your body shape. Bra tops are fab for busty women, halter-neck top bikinis offer support and create enviable cleavage. Bikini tops with built-in padding or underwiring is great for women who are small on top. Ruffles or prints pieces are great for slim women as they create the illusion of curves. High-cut bikini bottoms make your bum appear smaller and your legs appear longer. I can go on and on with more tips, the bottom line is you knowing what designs suit your body shape and buying them.

 

Go for Bright Colours in the Summer

Take advantage of the sun and go for bright coloured pieces this summer. They always look so good.

 

Remember Your Kaftans & Sarongs

I have stocked up on a few kaftans and sarongs ready for the beach and you should too, if you are planning a beach holiday. I find them so comfortable and chilled out. They are great for chilling on a beach. I always go a size up when shopping for these as I like it to be airy and free. There are so many stylish designs in the stores so keep your eyes open.

 

Are you going on a beach holiday this year? Do you have any beachwear tips to share?

 

 

5 Fashion Hacks for Handbags

Handbags are my favourite accessories. I see them as an easy way to add some ‘wow’ into any outfit, so I take my time buying them. I have quite a few handbags and I am in the pursuit of adding a few more to my bag collection, which inspired this post. When you go for quality over quantity, your handbags serve you longer, and you can even make some money off them if you plan to sell them off at some point. I have sold a few designers bags on eBay and I made some cool cash off them so I know.

Here are some fashion hacks for you to have in mind when it comes to buying and using your handbags:

 

A Classic Bag

If you can afford to, have at least 1 classic designer bag, preferably in black. It is smarter to go for a classic style that will stand the test of time, and still be in vogue 10 years later.

 

On-the-go Bags

Since becoming  mum, I have fallen in love with on-the-go bags, also known as satchel or messenger bags. They are the best fashion inventions ever! I can have my bag and have my hands free. They are great for busy mums, students and travellers. You should have at least 1 of these. I have quite a few and I am in the pursuit of others.

 

Clutch Chic

Clutch bags are ideal for dinners, wedding and formal events. They have the power to add instant glamour to your outfit so they are definitely worth having. I was slow on the clutch chic collection, but I am happy to have a few clutches now. I will probably be adding some more at some point, bank balance permitting.

Go for Light Bags

It amazes me the amount of cheap heavy bags designers churn out every season. I always check the weight of a bag before carrying. Bags that come naturally heavy will be a lot heavier once you have your junk in it. This added weight can cause strains, damage posture, and trigger back and shoulder pain.

 

Care for your Bags

Handle your handbags with tender, love and care. Make sure you do not squash them while storing. Opt to store your bags in drawstring cotton bags when not in use.
