OOTD: Birthday in Milan

As you should all know by now, I turned 30 last week Saturday, and I spent the weekend in Milan. It was an amazing trip. I had fun exploring the beautiful city. There was a lot to see, especially the shops. We popped into all the lovely luxury stores – Gucci, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Mercedes-Benz, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and the likes. I wish I had an unlimited budget, I would have bought all the bags and shoes in the stores. I did get a few things, I just wish I got more.

I took these photos on my birthday. I got the pieces just before the trip, and I like how the outfit turned out. I love wearing jumper dresses in the winter because they are warm and cosy, and also very easy to style, all I need is a pair of tights to bring it to life.

Jumper desses are also very multi-tasking, they can be worn in the warmer months without tights. I have recently fallen in love with the style, and I have quite a few in my wardrobe now.

The shoes are new as well, a gift and I love the over the top bow on it. It stands out and many people seem to like the design. I love it!

We took the pictures below at Duomo di Milano. If you have been there before, you would know how busy the place is. We got a couple of pictures taken in the midst of the birds and chaos. I didn’t like the location much, the birds were a little too many for me, and there were people everywhere -a proper tourist spot.

That is my lovely big sister. She has appeared on the blog twice before as a Fashion Diva and she was with us over in Milan. We were up to no good half the time, lol.

Speaking of Fashion Divas, I need to bring that series back to life. What say you? So get in touch if you are a fashion blogger or lover, and want to feature your style on Fashion and Style Police.

The birds were everywhere  I was worried I would step on them.

Or they would step on me. Or perch on me. I was trying to get some cover from my Sis here, lol.

It was a fun trip, and I can’t wait to go back. I will just avoid the birds in Duomo next time.

Autumn Fashion Season Swag

One of the best things about a new season is a new wardrobe. And one of the best things about Autumn fashion is the layering and the cosy pieces. I get super excited about new season trends. All I need is an unlimited budget to get buying right? If only…

Since I can’t buy all the cool pieces in the stores, I happily lust after them. I have my mind on so many stylish pieces. Here are a few of them –

 

Double Breasted Shearling Coat £40

I love this double-breasted Sherling Coat a lot. The tan suedette fabric with super soft cream faux fur lining and faux fur oversized lapel is bang on trend. I have nothing like this stunning piece in my wardrobe so I think this coat will be a fabulous addition.

 

SIK SILK CAMO INTERLOCK POLY TRICOT ZIP HOODIE £64.99

I am always on the lookout for stylish menswear for the man in my life and I think this camouflage hoodie is a fab choice. I love the camouflage print, I think it is so trendy and always in vogue. I wonder why I have no cam piece. I think I will need to change that. I can picture this hoody looking amazing on my man. It has Autumn fashion season swag written all over it.

 

Women’s Crew Neck Striped Wool Dress £180

This wool multi coloured dress is on my style radar; I don’t care how heavy the price tag is, lol..

I can picture myself rocking this beautiful piece with my black ankle boots. It would look amazing. Pairing this beauty with a pair of white sneakers would give it a nice laid back look too.

 

Alegria Watch, Gray £279

If you know me well enough, you would know how much I love my watches. I have not bought a new watch in a bit, but I have my eye on this gorgeous piece right here. It is so chic, so elegant. I love the sophisticated look and the grey dial. I would so love to have this beautiful watch on my wrist. Maybe Santa would come early…

 

 

faith-ankle-boots-image

 

This Faith Black Brooke High Boots is the Truth! I would classify this as a wardrobe necessity this season. It is a great pair of boots to have this Autumn. It would take you from day-to-night easily. I can’t leave with a few pairs of ankle boots in my wardrobe during Autumn/Winter.

What do you think of these pieces? Sound off in the comment below.

Thanks for reading.

Sandals Wishlist August 2016

If you have been keeping an eye on my outfit pots, you would how much I love my sandals in the summer. I get so warm during the day, so I usually avoid wearing shoes or sneakers. I like my sandals comfortable and stylish, and I like to have quite a few pairs in my wardrobe each summer. I must confess I shopped a little too much this summer. I got carried away with the amazing sales and designs in the shops. I am all sorted now I hope as far as sandals are concerned, but if I cam across a little extra cash, I may spoil myself some more. Life is for the living, lol.

I currently have these 3 sandals on my mind just incase anyone wants to spoil me, wink wink…

 

Fitflop Lattice Surf Flip Flops £55 £44

 

Jones Bootmakers Flip Flops Image

I am yet to own any flip-flops and I think I need a pair at least. I had some pairs back in the day, many moons ago, before it was giving the fancy name ‘Flip Flops’, and I remember finding them so casual and comfortable. This pair from Jones Bootmaker Sandals Collection is a stunning choice. I love the chic, simple design, and the pretty colour. Good to see it on sale too.

 

 

Faith Black 'Daisy' high crossover sandals Image

 

I have always been a lover of Faith shoes in general. I find them so stylish and chic. So I am not too surprised to find myself lusting after this beautiful black crossover sandals. It would fit into my wardrobe nicely, and it is super affordable too at £35.

 

Karoly two-tone wedge sandals by Lacoste £80

This wedge beauty right is one of my current favourites. I love the wedge heel, the colour is also perfect. I have nothing like this beauty in my wardrobe at the moment, so I have my eyes on this one. I think it would look amazing paired with a nice summer dress.

 

Are you a sandals lover like me? What do you think of these three sandals? Which is your favourite?

Thanks for reading and have a lovely weekend.
