Great Christmas Gift Ideas for Her

*Collaborative post

I know it may not feel like Christmas is around the corner for many of us, but the truth is that it is. October ends this week and once Halloween is over. All everyone starts to think about and talk about is Christmas. I have started seriously thinking of what Christmas gifts I would be getting my loved ones. There are a few items on my list already and I will be grabbing them in the next few days so I have plenty of time to wrap and post them without panicking.

I recently came across this fantastic website – Cocorose London. I read their latest blog post on the Perfect Christmas Gifts for Her and I found the post very timely and it gave me loads of gift ideas.

I love the look of the leather trainers here. The red stars paired with white is a stylish design. I am very into trainers now. I find myself wearing them a lot these days. They are quick to wear, easy to style, and very comfy. This stylish pair would make a lovely Christmas gift. It looks amazing.

Piccadilly – Quilted Black Ballerinas

I am forever wearing flats! They are super comfortable and easy to wear. I wear them all year long. You can pair flats with warm tights on cold days and you can wear them with a summery dress on warm days. They are so versatile, which is why a woman can never have too many flats. They are great gift ideas for women like me who love their flats. The stunning quilted black flats here would work great as a Christmas gift.

Silk Face Mask with Filter Pocket and Matching Pouch – Blush

It looks like we will be wearing face masks for some time. This pink silk face mask by Cocorose London comes with a filter pocket and matching pouch. It would work great as a stocking filler or a little Christmas gift. I like the pink colour and the fact that it is made from 100% premium quality, high-grade mulberry silk.

Carnaby – Grey Leopard Print Foldable Shoes

Foldable shoes are so handy to have on you especially on days when you have high shoes you may need to take off after some time. I love that brands now design foldable shoes just for this purpose. Back in the day, it used to be me popping my old flats in my handbag for when I need it but now I can just pop a foldable pair in my bag and it fits in nicely. This would make a great gift.

Fashion for Outdoor Events

Spring is here and it will be summer before we say BOOM! Summer is all about barbecues, picnics and loads of outdoor events/activities. It is usually a busy time of the year and I really can’t wait for all the fun the season brings.

When it comes to dressing for outdoor events, we have to pay special attention to our clothing and accessories to ensure they are fit for purpose. Fashion for the outdoors is all about wearing the right outfit for the event. Being outdoors for an entire event can be hard, depending on the weather and whether you like being outdoors or not.

Here are some fashion and style tips you may find handy –

 

If in doubt wear jeans

Jeans are great for outdoor events. You can easily catch me wearing a pair of jeans. They are practical, stylish and very functional. Jeans are great for picnics, summer barbecues and parties, You can hide grass and food stains easily on a pair of jeans. They are also very easy to glam up. You can style it with a glittery or over the top blouse for a more stylish look.

Layer like a pro

If you are going to be spending hours outdoors, it is best to dress up in layers, so you can put on and take off as needed. Styling your outfit with a light jacket or wrap cardigan on a summery day would work great. You could also go for a look with a camisole underneath. This helps for when it starts off being very warm in the day but becomes chilly in the evening.

 

Go for comfy clothing

When it comes to outdoor events, I like to think of comfort after layering. Comfort is very important if I plan to have a great time. I like to wear comfy pieces like light jeans, cotton tops, dark linen trousers, wide knee-length skirts and the likes.

 

Remember the accessories

For a summer day, I am always with a hat and a pair of sunglasses to protect my eyes. I can’t imagine attending an outdoor event without them.

Go elegant to the Races

If going to the races is on your agenda this summer, make sure you have your elegant outfit ready. It is all about the glamourous dress paired with stunning heels, and hat/fascinator. Ensure you dress to look the part.

 

Style your footwear smart

Ensure you wear the right sort of shoes and make sure you can work in them. I remember wearing a lovely strappy sandals to a summer wedding a few years ago. It was done outdoors and I struggled to walk on the grass. My heels kept digging into the muddy grass. It was a horrible experience. You don’t want to find that you are struggling to walk in your shoes on the day. A way to get around this is to wear comfy shoes for the location of the event. A more structured heel or wedge would have been ideal for me. Also, it makes sense to have a pair of flats in your bag for when your feet need it.

 

 

 

 

Elle Fanning Covers ELLE UK February 2017

The lovely 18-year-old Elle Fanning is the cover girl for ELLE UK February 2017, and she looks beautiful.

I love how colourful the cover is. Her hair and makeup is on point (love the red lippie), and her blue outfit is very stylish. I really can’t fault this cover. ELLE ticked all the right magazine cover boxes.

I read a few excerpts from Elle Fanning’s interview with ELLE, and it sounds like it would be a great read. Here are some of them:

 

Limiting her social media presence

‘I recently turned my Instagram public on my 18th birthday, but I still don’t post everything I do, and I’m not on Twitter or Facebook. You have to leave a little mystery. With old movie stars, all you saw were rare interviews where they only shared what they wanted to – that’s what made them so interesting. You could separate the characters from the women, so if you watch them on-screen you’re not thinking about what they had for breakfast.’

I am impressed to see she is not as social media crazy as the rest of her peers. The deal with social media is to run it and not let it run you. She sounds like a smart young lady.

 

The power of silence

‘I’ve just finished shooting with Sofia Coppola and she’s one of the quietest people ever, but there’s a real power to her silence. When she just stares at you from across a take, you know you need to get the shot.’

 

I agree, there is real power in silence.

I would love to read this issue. I don’t see myself buying it, but I would grab it if I see it lying around in a waiting room for example.

What do you think of this issue? Will you be buying? Drop me a comment, let’s talk.
