OOTD: A Blogger Event Outfit

fashion-outfit-image

 

Have you told you how much I love my leopard print sandal? It first appeared here on the casual daywear look outfit post and I have worn it so many times now. It looks good with so many pieces in my wardrobe and it is dead easy to style. I get so many lovely compliments when I wear it, I guess that is because it stands out in a pretty way.

I wore this outfit to a fashion and beauty event in Chester over the weekend. I wanted a casual chic look so I went for a  simple black top with a pair of skinny jeans, paired with cream sunnies, gold and brown bag and sandals. I like to black safe when it comes to press events so I usually for a black piece because it blends right in. You would hardly see me rocking colour at an event. Don’t ask me why….

Let me tell you just incase you were wondering, I love dark pieces and I think it always looks good but doesn’t usually stand out. I like looking good but not standing out at work related events (well not much) at events, and that is the reason why you won’t catch me wearing colour at press events.

The event was fun. It is my first press event this year and I had an amazing time. I was the only blogger invited to the event on that particular day so it felt kind of exclusive and I love that about it. I met some amazing people and I am going to tell you all about in the next couple of days, so be on the lookout for the post.

Are you a fan of the casual chic look? What are your thoughts on this outfit? Sound off in the comment section below.

Thanks for reading and have a fabulous day.

5 Fashion Hacks for Jewellery

I do not wear a lot of jewellery, but the few I do wear, I like them to be quality. I won’t just put any piece on. Jewellery has the power to step up any look, once worn correctly.

Here are a few jewellery fashion hacks to remember when shopping or styling your next outfit:

 

All on the Wrist

Charm Bracelets Image

Drawing attention to your wrists is the oldest trick in the style bible. Opt for small and delicate bracelets or bangles if you have a slim, slender wrist like mine above, or go for chunkier wrist jewellery for larger wrists. These Corbico Bracelets are so cute.

 

No Necklaces on Halter-neck Tops

I see ladies rocking a halter-neck top and a necklace at the same time and it looks so wrong. I wish I could stop and tell every one of them, so I am telling as many that are reading this post. If you are guilty of the fashion mistake, please stop now.

The neck is a vocal point already, and having a halter-neck top on draws more attention to it. So rocking a necklace on a halter-neck top will just draw too much attention to it, and look odd. Instead, draw attention to your bare shoulders by rocking large hoop or drop earrings.

 

Layer the Bangles

I love layering bangles and bracelets. I think it is so cool, and it kind off adds the ‘WOW’ to an otherwise boring/plain outfit. I love stacking bangles and bracelets up. It creates this bold look. These Ziba Bangles are the TRUTH!

 

Earrings

 

Sparkling Earrings

I pay special attention to my earrings. I now go for quality over quantity so you won’t catch me rocking cheap plastic sterling silver earrings. I hardly necklaces on, because I like to pay more attention to my earrings. A beautiful pair of earrings, like the Hazel + Kent beauty above, can easily change an entire look. Trust me, I know.

 

Choker

Like I said, I hardly have necklaces on but when I do have them on, I like them to be dramatic. A choker has the power to transform a plain look to instantly. This dramatic Regal Rose choker necklace is one of my current favourites.

OOTD: Colour Me Beautiful*

Colourful Summer Outfit Image

 

There is something about a nice sunny weather that makes me feel alive and ready to put on my most colourful outfit. Summer does that to me and more. I don’t know about where you are at, but where I am, it feels like summer, and I am so loving it.  The only issue I have with the warm weather, is the sudden bolt of Hay Fever that comes along with it. Thankfully I think I have discovered the right meds, and the right method of managing it. I won’t let Hay Fever ruin my summer this year, the way it ruined it last year.

Back to this colourful outfit, I wore this outfit to an event some days ago, and I got loads of compliments. I fell in love with this beautiful summer embroidered Chill Out dress as soon as I laid my eyes on it on the Joe Browns website. Bursting with bright colours and designs, what is there not to love? It is a perfect wardrobe addition this season, and it is also going to be in my holiday wardobe for the year. So if I go anywhere nice, sunny and warm, this colour block beauty goes with me. It is a laid back look but very stylish. So it is perfect for the lounging by a pool or a beach, and it is stylish enough to rock to a birthday party at the same time.
