Giveaway – WIN Buckley London Finsbury Earrings

Hey fashion lovers! This post is for the fashion and jewellery lovers. My giveaway post for the year is this Buckley London Finsbury Earrings worth £25 from House of Fraser! I love the earrings. I have a pair myself and it is a beautiful set of earrings that combines classic with modern.

The stunning two part earrings are gold plated and embellished with beautiful white crystals. The design got my eye immediately with the triangular stud front, and the curved fin lower part. I think it is such a delicate beauty. Do you agree? The earring size is 20 x 15mm, and I think it is the perfect size for anyone in search of a cute set of earrings.

The first thing that comes to mind with this set of earrings is how elegant it looks. I love the fact that I can wear it with almost any outfit. It would look good to the office and would look great to an event. I guess that explains why it is so popular. The earrings also remind me of this Vintage Christian Dior Crystal Earrings I got sometime ago. Those earrings are one of my favourites.

Transitioning Your Child’s Wardrobe from Summer to Winter

I like going through the kiddies wardrobe every 3 months. That way I get to take out clothing that no longer fits or items that no longer look good. This allows me to ensure they have all they need for the new time of year. I usually do this at the start of a new season, so if there are gaps to fill, I get them filled as soon as possible.

A few weeks ago, I transitioned my children’s wardrobe from Summer to Winter. It was a lot of fun for me to do as always. One of my favourite jobs is sorting wardrobes out, which kind of explains why I wanted to pursue a career in fashion styling, but that is a story for another day.

The kiddies have their Winter wardrobe ready transitioned! Ready for the colder months! So, we said goodbye to some of the Summery pieces and hello to the Autumn/Winter wardrobe. All the warmer clothing and footwear are in place ready to be worn, and the kiddies are loving their new pieces and the new way of styling them.

 

If you are thinking of sorting your child’s ware out for the new season, then you are reading the right post. Here are 4 easy ways of transitioning your child’s wardrobe from Summer to Winter –

 

Transitioning Your Child’s Wardrobe from Summer to Winter

 

Check what you need

The first part of transitioning is to check what your child needs. It makes no sense duplicating pieces or buying clothing that is not needed. Once you have gone through the wardrobe, then you will see where the gaps are and how to go about shopping for them. Some great piece’s I have started with are from the Children’s Designerwear by Strawberry Children. It is a great high-end fashion children’s clothing store with so many stylish pieces for both boys and girls.

 

Get the layers ready

Having layers ready is a great way to ensure your children look stylish and comfy this season. I like to ensure my kids have light layers to complement some of their clothing. So, boleros, cardigans, waist coats, sweaters in various colours and designs must be in place. That way, they can still wear some of their Summer pieces like light shirts and dresses in the Autumn/Winter months. The kids outgrow their clothes so quickly so being able to wear the most of their clothes is also good value for money.

 

Shop for Winter staple pieces

I like to shop for Winter staple pieces and get them ready in time for the season. These include; thick tights, woolly hats, gloves, scarves and coats. It is smart to have a couple of these items as tights tend to rip quite quickly, and gloves and hats usually grow wings, especially with kids at school.

Invest in great footwear

It makes sense to invest in great footwear for your children especially in the colder months with the snow and icy roads. Summer footwear is not appropriate, so it is time to make way for the boots, wellies, and trainers to ensure maximum comfort. It might be worth having their feet measured before buying any footwear, just so you get the right sizes.

 

How are you getting your child’s wardrobe ready for Winter? Please share your tried and tested tips below.

Outfit Post – Styling A One Shoulder Dress

Summer is as good as gone now. There is a chill in the air and I have mixed feelings about it. I miss the sunshine and warm weather now that it is not here anymore. But I am kind of looking forward to the cooler days and nights ahead. I also love Autumn/Winter fashion, so I am super excited about that too. How have you been?

I got this Black One Shoulder Maxi Dress – Opal some weeks ago. The One Shoulder design took me way back to my days in uni when this style was in vogue. I wore the hell out of one strap pieces and I am happy to see they are back.

This stunning black dress is a fashion lover’s dream.  The stunning one shoulder bodycon maxi dress would flaunt your figure beautifully. It is also dead easy to style up or down to suit every occasion which is fab. I love this dress.

This Louise Black Faux Suede Cork Wedge Sandals is also a new addition to my shoe collection. I got it some weeks ago and I have worn it a few times already now. I love the wedge heel. It is super comfy and stylish at the same time. The sandals are perfect for everyday wear which is how I like my sandals to be. And they are so easy on the eyes. What do you think? The sandals to me are stylish + comfy = me wearing it every chance I get.
