Style Icon: Lauren Pope

Hey fashion and style lovers! Happy new month! Welcome to the amazing month of April. The style icon for this month is the very stylish Lauren Pope. For reality tv show fans, you would recognise Lauren Pope from the hit tv show – The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE). For those who do not know this style icon, Lauren Pope is a model, television personality and DJ. She regularly appeared on TOWIE until she officially left the show in March 2019. I have been a huge fan of Pope’s sense of style. She was one of the reasons why I usually watched TOWIE back in the day. The girls on the reality show were always dressed in their Sunday’s best and they gave me loads of fashion inspiration. Pope’s outfits always look very nice on her. She has a great taste in fashion and she knows what looks good on her.

Style Icon: Lauren Pope

I love seeing Lauren Pope’s outfits on Instagram. Her Instagram page is one of my favourites. She is fashion goals all day, everyday. I get a lot of fashion inspiration from her many different looks. This style icon looks good in pretty much everything. Her slender  body shape allows her get away with different pieces and she rocks them like a pro! She is one of the TOWIE girls I really admire. Pope’s personal style is very feminine and chic. She can be easily spotted wearing crop tops, baggy pants and fitted dresses. If I am to describe her personal style in two words, they would casual chic. Her sense of style works great for her.

How to Refresh your Jewellery Box this Spring

A new season means we need to refresh our home, wardrobe and life in general, in one way or the other. An easy way to spice things up is by refreshing your jewellery box. Jewellery like many other accessories, has the power to make or break an outfit. Which is why you should pay special attention to your jewellery pieces.

Here are ways you could refresh your jewellery box this spring.

 

Empty the Jewellery Box

Empty your jewellery box. Take a good long look at all the jewellery you have and decide on what you are keeping and what you are getting rid of. Emptying the contents of your jewellery box enables you to take a good look at all you have. You have to be ruthless here, no room for sentiments if you want to get this stage done properly.

It is ok to have a couple of keepsakes and special jewellery you hardly put on, but any damaged piece of jewellery or any piece you have grown out of,  you should get rid of. This will create some gaps for you to fill up with the right jewellery.

 

Spring Clean your Jewellery

Give the jewellery you decide to keep a good cleaning with a polishing cloth. This will brighten up the pieces and bring them back to life! Ensure you clean your jewellery as regularly as you can. I recommend after every wear to keep them sparkly.

 

Go for Quality over Quantity

It always pays to go for quality over quantity for most things, and it is so true when it comes to Jewellery. I rather have a few quality pieces of jewellery than a box filled with cheap high street junk that would go black or fall apart after a few wears.

I like to spend a little bit extra when shopping for jewellery, after learning the hard way. Back in my teen years, I would happily rock cheap high street jewellery because I didn’t know any better. I can’t imagine doing that now. That would be money down the drain. Nowadays I go for high end jewellery. I am also a lover of vintage jewellery as they always look so good.

Shop for the Right Jewellery Designs

We all have different tastes when it comes to fashion and jewellery. But there are some universal rules that we should always stick to. For example, earrings should always accentuate the bone structure and not drag your lobes down or pull upwards. Uncomfortable earrings should be discarded immediately.

When shopping for new jewellery, ensure you go for pieces that would suit you best and not what is necessarily in vogue.

 

Invest in a Jewellery Box

Investing in a good Jewellery Box is a great idea. I currently have 2 jewellery boxes and I find them both very useful. I recently got the second box from Find Me A Gift. It is a personalised jewellery box and fits all my little earrings lying around. It also looks very pretty on my dressing table.
