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 Β 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.

OOTD: It Feels Like Autumn

autum-fashion-image

The brown leaves are starting to appear and it is beginning to feel a lot like Autumn. I love how cool this season is, and the layering trend is the best! You should all know how I feel about the autumn (or fall season, depending on where you are) season by now, and if you don’t, say hello to my favourite season of the year.

I am so looking forward to getting my blazers and jackets out. This leather waterfall jacket is one of my favoruite jackets at the moment. I love the colour and the design, and the fact that it is faux leather. I got this piece a few months ago but I have only worn it once so I am looking forward to styling it a few times this season.

I wore this outfit to a meeting with a client over the weekend, and it worked brilliantly. I like that fact that is a chic and smart look; not too professional, and not too dressed up; just perfect.

The white cutout pencil dress is a new wardrobe addition. I got it in the summer sale some weeks back and I like it. It is a fabulous dress for formal and informal events. It can take you from the office to the bar easily. And it is super easy to style up or down. I adore multi-tasking pieces like this white beauty.

I hardly wear white, I used to think it was a money down the drain. But I am glad to announce I no longer think that. I do like white, and I think it looks good on me so I will be adding more white to my wardrobe, but I won’t be going overboard shopping white.

OOTD: The Show Must Go On

OOTD Picture

 

The first half of 2016 is over. And usually around this time of the year, I like to reflect on how my year has been so far. So I know if I am heading in the right direction or not. I am a bit of an organised freak, so I like to keep an eye on any aspect of my life. 2016 has been fab to be honest. My family and friends are well. I am well. The summer weather has been great in the last couple of days, although I am still suffering from hay fever, and it got worse last weekend, but I am hoping to be free of it very soon, crossing my fingers, and my toes.

Fashion and Style Police is growing and my income reports are also looking good, which is fab. This blog started as a hobby, then became a part-time job, and is now a full-time job. I even have a lovely lady working with me to keep this blog alive and kicking, so I am happy I am reaping the fruits of my labour, and all my efforts have not been in vain.

My Book – How to Cash In as a Blogger is also a bit popular on Amazon (please leave me a review on Amazon if you haven’t done so already), so I feel extremely blessed.

Overall, the first half of the year has been fantastic, and I am raising my glass to the second half of the year, hoping it is even better.

Now over to this outfit. I wore this outfit some days ago. We were visiting friends and family in another city and I wanted a simple/casual outfit, so I went for this. I also had on this gorgeous rose gold Grand Classic Michelle Keegan Coin Necklace by Sparkling Jewellery, and it got a lot of attention. It is a fine delicate necklace, and the coin design makes it even more beautiful and special. Plus in came in my favourite shade of gold – Rose Gold.

I fell in love with this necklace as soon as I laid eyes on it. It came in a very cute package, it was impossible to not fall in love. It retails for only Β£35, which I find very affordable. Sparkling Jewellery also has so many other unique necklace, bracelet and ring designs, with light price tags so you will be spoilt for choice on their website.
