OOTD – Autumn Street Style

I have not posted an outfit post in a while. I was called out the other day by a reader, and I realised I have seriously neglected my personal style category on Fashion and Style Police. There is really no excuse. It is down to pure laziness but I promise to be better. My focus has been on writing, but I need to remember the big picture. Outfits are a huge part of the big picture. So with that out-of-the-way, say hello to my latest outfit post – Autumn Street Style.

I got this colourful kaftan while holidaying in Oman in the summer. I wore it for the first time some days ago, and I love how comfy it is. It is one size, and has an adjustable belt, which is so handy. I have fallen in love with this kaftan. I wish I got a few more. It is great for the autumn season too!

Everything else I have on is an Oldie but a Goldie. I don’t shop all the time but when I do, I like to buy quality, and this is because I think it is cheaper in the long run to buy quality pieces and accessories. They last longer, which works for me. I don’t have the money or time to keep shopping every season. So I rather spend that more on an expensive pair of jeans or shoes, than a cheap version, only to have it fall apart after a few wears.

I  loving autumn so far. It is getting colder, especially in the mornings and at night, but our heating isn’t on yet, so I guess it isn’t that bad. I am also looking forward to the layering trend; the boots, tights, scarves and light layers rocks my style world.

Amy Adams Covers ELLE UK November 2016 Issue

Photographed by Liz Collins, styled by Anne-Marie Curtis, Amy Adams wears Balenciaga.

 

The beautiful and talented Amy Adams is on the cover of ELLE UK November 2016 and she looks so cute. I love the cover. She looks so relaxed and pretty, like a typical girl next door, and I love it. I also love the fact that she is channeling her autumn style in Balenciaga. Loving the autumn vibes.

This issue promises to be a good read. In her interview with ELLE UK, Amy discusses her struggles to balance family and work, being compared to other women in Hollywood, the issue with the pay gap and being over 40 in a competitive industry.

‘The negotiation comes to a standstill and I have to make a choice, which a lot of women do. I can walk away. But I choose not to…This is an issue not just about women’s pay; we need to work on how women are viewed in society and then the pay will be reflected in that…Right now time is more important to me. So that’s what I negotiate because any time I’m working, I’m not spending with my daughter.’

‘I gave up wanting to look like Charlize when I was, like, 12. I have short legs, I’m athletic, I have pale skin that reacts to cold and hot moisture. You just have to accept who you are. In those comparisons, I always lost.’

This five-time Oscar nominee is also the star of Tom Ford’s new film Nocturnal Animals and Sci-Fi drama Arrival, both of which are garnering five-star reviews and Oscar buzz at the moment.

I would love to read this issue. I can see myself grabbing a copy. I have always liked Amy Adams. I find her very interesting so I would naturally want to know more about her. The price usually puts me off but I have been feeling generous lately so I may get this.

What do you think of this issue? Are you a fan of Amy Adams?

 

 

 

OOTD: Style Comfort Zone

Black and grey Outfit Image

Black and silver look so good together. Who would have thought? I love how minimal and chic they look styled together. This outfit has autumn style written all over it!

I collaborated with the lovely people at Boohoo to bring to you this black and silver outfit. If you remember my last collaboration with Boohoo, it was the Black Friday Outfit post I featured sometime last year, which I enjoyed styling because it was an all black outfit. This time, the idea behind this collaboration is to feature a secret piece styled in my own way. This secret piece is this Emmaline satin slip dress I have on right here.

Now to be honest, I won’t have picked this dress at all. I won’t even have considered it. So when it arrived in the post, I was a bit disappointed. But when it came to styling it, I find it so easy to style. I went for black accessories because I knew they would look good amazing paired next to the dress. And I went for a leather jacket and ankle boot because they add an edge to the look, and they also usher in Autumn. I am now looking forward to Autumn Fashion, can you tell?

I have now fallen in love with this satin slip dress. And I need to thank Boohoo for taking me out of my style comfort zone. I won’t have pictured it this good. I now need to experiment some more with my style.
