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 – Yellow Dress for Spring

*PR sample and affiliate links.

 

Spring is here and I am happy we now have longer days. The darkness is my biggest issue with Winter, so I am happy that is now behind us. I wore this outfit the other day and I think it is a perfect look for spring. Yellow is a colour I go for when I want to popping look, and this yellow twist detail dress came out great. The yellow dress is a new wardrobe addition. I love the light satin material and the gorgeous shade of yellow. It is definitely a dress I can see myself wearing a lot this spring/summer season. I am wearing a size 10.

I usually shy away from midi dress because I struggle to style them right. But I nailed this lovely midi piece! The twist detail is my favourite part of the dress, followed by the bright yellow colour and satin material. It stands out in my wardrobe, as previously had nothing like this stunning dress. I am glad I came across it.

Styling this yellow dress was very easy. I wanted dark colours for the accessories so the dress stands out. So I opted for my good old black sandals and handbag. The cream sunglasses finished off the look beautifully. The weather was lovely on the day so there was no need for a blazer or a pair of tights. Long may it continue.

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?
