OOTD: The Oversized Trend & the Petite Woman

I got back from my birthday vacation from Milan yesterday, and I had a good time. I have been sharing snaps from my holiday on Instagram, so you can catch up on my Milan trip on Instagram. I will also been sharing some of my holiday snaps on the blog along with details of my trip soon, so look out for that post.

I am now trying to get back into the swing of things. I travelled with my iPad Pro and Keyboard, hoping I would be able to get some work done but I was unable to. I was having so much fun, I didn’t even have time to publish a blog post. Yes Milan was that good, and I can’t wait to go back. The shops were so amazing. I was like a kid in a candy store!

I took these photos in Essex some weeks ago. It was a cold wet day, but the rain stopped just in time for me to get these shots taken.

I have fallen in love with the oversized trend. I have always liked the trend, but I seem to be picking more and more oversized pieces lately. As a petite lady, I find it odd that they look good on me. I previously wrote about style tips for the petite woman, and it is funny I broke a few rules here. But it is allowed for an oversized look.

This is the trend I am into for now. Who knows what I will be into next month!

However, there is a very thin line between looking stylish and looking frumpy when it comes to rocking oversized pieces. So thin, many cross it everyday without knowing. I think I should write a post on that, what do you think?

Robin Wright Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK April 2016

Robin Wright covers Harper’s Bazaar UK April 2016 issue and she looks lovely on it. If you are a fan of Netflix House of Cards series, then you will know all about Robin’s Character – Claire Underwood, the power hungry, first lady of the United States of America, and if you don’t watch House of Cards, I suggest you binge on it now, or no, binge on it after reading this post.

I admire Robin’s character in the series. She is so strong and fierce, it is captivating. I am a huge fan of the series, and I finished watching all 4 seasons, and looking forward to the 5th. One thing that captivates me about the show, apart from the intense story line, and how crazy the Underwoods are, is Claire’s amazing style. Her stylish dresses that fit like a glove, and her lovely hair cut makes me envy her. This woman is a show-stopper and she knows it.

I am loving the Ralph Lauren dress she has on the subscribers cover, and the pose is giving me life, and I see myself grabbing this issue most definitely. I can’t believe this woman will be 50 years old next month (April), she looks like a 30-year-old woman. Don’t you think?

I am also loving the main cover, I think Robin looks beautiful on this issue, the Max Mara top looks amazing, but I think I prefer the subscribers cover. The pose and the dress she has on there is everything.

What do you think of both covers? Which do you prefer?

Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading.

OOTD Leather Pants

Leather pants have always been on my radar but I have never really thought of having one until now. It was one of those pieces I had a love and hate relationship with, and don’t ask me why, because I don’t know.  Anyways, I got my hands on a pair of leather leggings some days ago and I have so many different looks planned out with it in mind, starting with this look.

Leather Leggings

I have now discovered the power of a good pair of leather leggings and I am never looking back.

New OOTD Leather Look

We are know the power of a good pair of leggings, and how much of a wardrobe staple they are. Show me a woman who doesn’t have multiple pairs of leggings and tights in her wardrobe, and I will show you a woman who doesn’t know how to make the most of her wardrobe budget. These pieces have the power to make anyone look stylish on a budget.

Leather pants are as much as a necessity as a normal cotton leggings, if not more. A pair of leather tights or leggings has the power to take a look from plain, casual to a classic killer outfit. Leather pants are figure flattering and so easy to style. I styled mine with a crop knit top, chelsea boots, and a faux fur coat. I also added a pair of sunnies because the sun gets into my eyes……
