OOTD – Fashion Blog

Sometimes I forget Fashion and Style Police started as purely a Fashion Blog. So much has changed in the last 5 years. I have been able to incorporate my other loves on the blog; beauty and lifestyle being the 2 other niches I cover on here now. I won’t run this blog any other way.

I love fashion and style, and truly enjoy writing fashion blog posts. However, I would be bored silly if that was all I ever could write on Fashion and Style Police. I believe a varied blog brings in more interesting content. Do you agree?

I wore this outfit today. Scheduling some me time for the bank holiday was at the top of my to-do list, and I made the most of it. Earlier today, I popped over to my local Odeon Cinema, and saw Logan Lucky. I was a bit hesitant to watch this movie at first, as I am not usually a fan of comedy, but this was a good one. It was more of a thriller than a comedy, which was good. I did laugh quite a lot too, which was great. A good laugh is the best way to start the week.

I need to do this more often. Just have some alone time to myself. Being a work from home mother means I have to schedule me times in well in advance. They can be tricky to get sorted, but get sorted it must. We parents need regular breaks to function.

Back to the outfit here. The top is a new summer wardrobe addition. I got it some weeks ago and I have fallen completely in love with it. The stunning design and embroidery is so right up my alley. It is also very easy to style with a pair of jeans. I love pieces that I can dress up and down with zero effort, and this burgundy beauty ticks all the right boxes.

Winter Clothing Staples Every Woman Needs

There are various things that dictate what type of clothing we wear, which includes everything from our budgets and personal tastes through to the weather and the seasons. During the winter, the wardrobes of most women go through a radical change as they switch their lighter, summer clothing for winter essentials that are practical, warm yet still stylish. It is important for any woman to ensure she has the right clothing essentials for the winter period and there are a number of wardrobe clothing staples that every woman should aim to have during the winter. By making sure that you have the right clothing in your wardrobe this winter you can ensure you stay warm, snug and cosy without compromising on style and confidence no matter where you are going.

Essentials for your winter wardrobe

If you want to ensure that you are fully prepared for the colder season with a winter wardrobe packed with essentials, here are some of the items you should add to your list:

 

  • Knee length boots: Winter is not the time for those sling backs or stilettos, particularly if it the weather is very bad. This is why you should make sure you invest in a good pair of knee length boots, as these are versatile as well as stylish and practical. They can be worn for work, a casual trip out, or even a night out because you can team them with skirts, dresses, jeans and more. The amazing eBay website does a great selection of boots and offers some great deals. You save even more money when you shop at eBay by heading to OZCodes for some very generous discounts.

 

  • Skinny jeans: Skinny jeans are perfect for a number of reasons during the winter. First off, the fact that they cling to you means that you won’t have to worry about that winter chill biting at your legs and ankles because the tightness of the jeans will keep it out. You will also find that their design is perfect for layering items on top in order to keep warm. You can head to retailers such as River Island, Debenhams, for a great choice of skinny jeans to add to your wardrobe.

 

  • High neck jumper: When it comes to feeling warm and still looking stylish, a high neck jumper is ideal. The great thing about these, apart from the fact that they keep the cold out, is that they can be worn for work, days out or casual evenings out. They also look great with jeans as well as jumpers and work-wear, which makes them a versatile addition to the wardrobe. The Iconic offers a good choice of tops and jumpers so take a look through the selection there to purchase your high neck jumper.

  • Knitted dress: Knitted dresses were in fashion some decades ago but have made a big comeback. Winter shouldn’t mean that you can’t wear a dress and by investing in a knitted dress you can enjoy the style and confidence that comes with wearing a dress without skimping on warmth and practicality.

 

  • Cashmere sweater: Cashmere has a texture and appearance that oozes luxury and style. Winter is the best time to wear this because you can show off your great fashion sense while revelling in the warmth and comfort of cashmere. A cashmere sweater is therefore an excellent addition to your winter wardrobe and you can enjoy some great deals on these and other sweaters at retailers such as Neverland Store.

 

  • Winter coat: Of course, a winter coat is essential during this season but keeping warm with your outerwear does not mean you have to do away with style. Invest in a statement coat such as metallic or a bold colour like red in order to brighten up your outfit, add a splash of colour to a gloomy grey day, and keep you looking stylish while you are out and about.

  • Knitted scarf: Scarves are not just good for keeping the cold out but also for adding style to any outfit. Accessorising with a knitted scarf will therefore enable you to enjoy practicality as well as style. You can even opt for a blanket scarf, which will envelope you in warmth but also make your outfit stand out all the more.

 

  • Leather jacket/coat: Winter is a great time to step out in a leather coat or jacket, as these are too heavy and hot for summer but look great during the colder season. You can really rock out when you wear leather and a stylish leather jacket is perfect for a glam night out as well as a casual shopping trip or day out.

 

  • Opaque tights: When it comes to winter fashion accessories, always have a pair of black opaque tights to hand. If you want to wear a skirt or dress during the colder weather, you don’t have to worry about having freezing legs when you have these tights. A high quality pair of opaque tights will keep you warm and they look great with skirts and dresses as well as with boots and shoes.

 

With these winter staples in your wardrobe, you can ensure that you have everything you need to combine style and practicality this winter.

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.

Are you a fan of the casual chic look? What are your thoughts on this outfit? Sound off in the comment section below.

Thanks for reading and have a fabulous day.
