OOTD: Springtime Staples

It is so windy outside as I write this post, but the fact remains, it is springtime (or is it?), so time to get the Springtime Staples out of the storage and grab some new pieces from the shops, if your wardrobe is in need of a spring fashion update.

I am yet to get my spring/summer clothes out of storage. I plan to sort that out in the next few days, hopefully before the bank holiday weekend next week. At the moment, this confused British weather is really messing with me. It has been up and down as usual this week, dead warm on some days, and painfully cold on some other days, like today. I hear it even snowed in Scotland some days ago.  Can you imagine that in April?

Light layering is the only way to survive spring time fashion, with the ups and downs of the weather. Thankfully, the fashion gurus saw this coming and got us prepared.

 

 

The crazy weather makes dressing up so hard sometimes. You never know how the day would really turn out, so you never know what to wear on such days. It is good to have transitional pieces like what I have on at the ready for when you need it.

Everything I have on here is from my existing wardrobe, no new pieces. I take pride in styling pieces and accessories from my wardrobe in different ways. It gives me joy when I get maximum wear from pieces.

OOTD: A Blogger Event Outfit

fashion-outfit-image

 

Have you told you how much I love my leopard print sandal? It first appeared here on the casual daywear look outfit post and I have worn it so many times now. It looks good with so many pieces in my wardrobe and it is dead easy to style. I get so many lovely compliments when I wear it, I guess that is because it stands out in a pretty way.

I wore this outfit to a fashion and beauty event in Chester over the weekend. I wanted a casual chic look so I went for a  simple black top with a pair of skinny jeans, paired with cream sunnies, gold and brown bag and sandals. I like to black safe when it comes to press events so I usually for a black piece because it blends right in. You would hardly see me rocking colour at an event. Don’t ask me why….

Let me tell you just incase you were wondering, I love dark pieces and I think it always looks good but doesn’t usually stand out. I like looking good but not standing out at work related events (well not much) at events, and that is the reason why you won’t catch me wearing colour at press events.

The event was fun. It is my first press event this year and I had an amazing time. I was the only blogger invited to the event on that particular day so it felt kind of exclusive and I love that about it. I met some amazing people and I am going to tell you all about in the next couple of days, so be on the lookout for the post.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley Covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2016

The beautiful and elegant Rosie Huntington Whiteley Covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2016, and it is a fab cover. I really like the whole white and grey theme going on here. It kind of reminds me of the autumn/winter season, which I am crazy about.

I got this issue some weeks ago, and I must confess, it was a fab read – I finished it in 1 sitting. I have always been interested in Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s career, right from her Victoria’s Secret days.  At 29 years old, the supermodel is doing very well for herself with her brand collaborations with M&S, Uggs Australia and Paige Denim. Her business acumen and drive is what stands Rosie Huntington Whiteley out from the rest. No wonder she is also one of Britain’s most successful supermodel.

Speaking on her Autograph collaboration with M&S –

‘Since I was young, I’ve always bought vintage night-slips and lace boleros,’ she says. ‘And Marks & Spencer is this iconic British high-street store that everybody in the UK has some form of connection with. My mum took me bra shopping there for the first time as a teenager.’

‘I think everybody is so used to celebrity endorsement that feels inauthentic, but I’ve worked for lingerie brands since I was 17,’ she says. ‘It’s really important when you align yourself with a brand that it’s genuine. You have to look at the bigger picture. It’s not just transactional, it’s not just about taking a job and making money and moving on to the next thing. It’s about: what does this mean for me? Where can this go?’

I am yet to try on a piece from her Autograph collection but I would love to. I have heard so many good things about the collection.

Do you own any of the pieces from the collection? What do you think of this cover?
