Outfit Post – Alala by Aken

*PR sample and Affiliate links.

Good thing I took these outfit photos last week for this fashion blog post. The weather has been miserable here this week, with non stop rain and strong winds. Always good to make hay when the sun shines for real.

I am wearing a lovely blouse by Alala by Aken. You may remember this clothing brand from my last outfit post, where I featured a bomber jacket from the designer. Here, I am wearing another stunning piece from the brand. I love everything about this blouse. It is a stunning fabric designed beautifully. I can see the attention to detail on it. The sleeves are giving me life. Love them!

Outfit Post – Autumn Style

I started Fashion and Style Police in October 2012, and sometimes I forget I have been running this blog for 6 years now. Fashion and Style Police started purely as a fashion and style police. So there were lots of outfit posts from day 1. Back then, on most weeks, I could post as many as 3 outfit posts.

Over the years, the blog has evolved as it should and it now covers beauty, travel, my self-employed and freelance journey, blogging tips, and all bits and bobs about my life which include my dearest twins. Sometimes, I like to look back to see how far I have come.

The journey to here has been long and hard work but fun because it is what comes natural to me. I am not trying to be someone else on here. There is no fakery at all It is pure me at the finest, and it has been an amazing rollercoaster ride. This blog has opened many doors for me. It has brought me opportunities I never thought were possible and I am forever thankful for that. It took me many years of hard work and dedication to get to the position I am now. And I am not even close to where I want to be yet but I am sure I will get there because I never quit.

I wore this outfit some weeks ago and I really the Orange Wide Sleeve Pleated Blouse. The lovely people at BlackBetty sent to me sometime ago and I finally got around to wearing it. I think it is super stylish and the colour is great for the current season. Styling this piece was easy with a pair of black leggings and heels.

What do you think of this look? How are you styling your autumn outfits?

Outfit Post – So Crazy So Beautiful

I asked my son what he thought of my new hairstyle and he said it is so crazy so beautiful! His response made me giggle and that is what inspired the title of the post. I like to find inspiration in my day-to-day life and my kids inspire me in so many ways.

These photos were taken a few days ago. The weather was good, so I decided to make the most of it and wear a dress without tights. In a few weeks, rocking bare legs won’t be possible, so I am making the most of the not so cold weather. Autumn can be so up and down. One minute it is freezing cold and we all have our heating on, and the next thing it is 18 degrees and we have our windows open. The weather is so crazy so beautiful sometimes.

The black dress is a new wardrobe addition. I got it as a week some weeks ago. It is a great quality piece. I adore the fabric of the dress and the style. You can never have too many little black dresses. There will always be room for more and this stunning skater black dress confirms the saying. I love the design at the front. It took the dress to a whole new level.

It was dead easy to style this black piece. I settled on the black shoes and leopard print blazer because that was the look I was going for. The gold clutch bag also complemented the outfit beautifully. I am feeling this outfit a lot!
