Style Tips for the Smart Casual Look

Smart casual is another look I love styling. It is quite easy to get this look right. If you read my last fashion post about rocking the casual daywear look, then you will know all about my love for the trend. The smart casual look is also close to heart. It is another look I found myself styling pretty much everyday some years ago when I worked for an energy company in Manchester.

For those who are not sure what this trend is all about, here is a definition for you. The Oxford Dictionary defines the smart causal look as “neat, conventional, yet relatively informal in style, especially as worn to conform to a particular dress code” Here are some style tips that may come handy if you intend to style the smart casual look –

 

Get a blazer

Rocking a blazer is one of the easiest way to add smartness to a causal look. A blazer has the power to add a touch of class to your regular casual look. And it does so effortlessly.

Knee-length pieces

My love for smart causal became stronger when I became a Mummy in 2013. It is easier to attend an event with twins looking dressed in a smart causal outfit than going all out with heels and minis. The smart casual look is easy to nail with knee-length dresses and skirts rather than minis.

 

Linen works in the warmer months

In the summer, linen works great for styling this look. Opt for chic linen trousers instead of jeans or leggings.

Add a clutch

A stylish clutch adds some more glam to your look. Go for an all-purpose clutch with some subtle beading to get this look right. I am usually not a clutch girl but I have invested in a couple this year, and I am glad I did. They are super handy to have around.

 

Are you a fan of the smart causal look? What do you like about it?

The Kiddies Review Syrup and Salt Clothing Brand

I am always on the lookout for great kids clothing brand for the kiddies. So I was thrilled to discover Syrup and Salt. For those who have never heard of Syrup and Salt, it is an independent fashion label created by Kate Harrison, from her North Cornwall design studio. It is a fun-loving brand with stylish collections. The brand has a unique collection of stunning Sweatshirts, Tees, Kids Clothing and Jewellery.

Syrup and Salt Sweatshirts

The Kiddies had the opportunity to review pieces from the sweatshirt collection for 2018/2019 . My son got the Yellow Kids Sunshine and Waves Sweatshirt, while my daughter got Grey Kids Sweatshirt with Glittery Lightning Bolt (Pink Highlight).

Our mini photo shoot was fun as always. The twins enjoy taking photos, especially my daughter. She has a new pose for every new shot!

We really like these Syrup and Salt Sweatshirts. They are colourful and stylish. I really like the creative designs. The Grey Kids Sweatshirt with Glittery Lightning Bolt (Pink Highlight) is such a beauty. My daughter really likes the glittery lightning bolt with pink highlight. She has worn it a few times already as it complements her existing wardrobe so it is easy to style. The sweatshirt also washes really well which is a plus.

My son’s Yellow Kids Sunshine and Waves Sweatshirt is also very pretty. I love the bright colour, yellow looks lovely on him. The waves design is also very stylish. It reminds me of the summer months, which I am seriously missing at the moment. He has worn it a couple of times as well and it washes very too!

3 Comfy Shoes for Holidays

Walking and holidays go hand in hand. While on holiday, the last thing you want to bother about are your shoes. So it makes sense to ensure you only take comfy shoes for holidays. I have a holiday booked for next month and I am seriously looking forward to it. It is our first trip for the year and it is long overdue.

We like to explore cities we visit, so naturally there would be a lot of walking. I usually stay away from heels on holiday, except there is an event that requires it. If there isn’t, flats work perfectly for me.

 

Here are some comfy shoes for holidays.

 

ECCO Womens Casual Boots £110

I got this TOMS shoes over a year ago and it is still one of my travel favourites. It is my first TOMS, and I love it. I find it super comfy and stylish. It is one of those pairs I find myself wearing over and over again because it is just too easy to style.

I have taken this TOMS on a few trips already and no regrets so far. It will be in my travel bag for my next trip for sure.

I got this Lust Kurt Geiger Denim Shoes last year, and took it away on my trip to Milan for my 30th Birthday. I am a huge fan of Kurt Geiger shoes and this beauty right is one of the reasons why.

It is super easy to style, and the oversize bow gives it the WOW look. I love it.
