OOTD: Lace in Peplum

UK Fashion Blogger Picture

 

Thank God the weekend is here at last, and I can show off this outfit of the day aka ootd: lace in peplum. This week has been so hard. I am extremely happy today is Saturday and I get to put my feet up. You have no idea how excited I am. It has been an extremely busy week with me juggling my life, blog and my freelance jobs. I am thankful to be this busy but I think I need to schedule in some proper ‘me’ time so I don’t breakdown, lol.

The thing about working for yourself is if you do not know where to draw the line, you will be working every minute you are awake, and I mean serious working – the fastest way to collapse….

I have decided to start taking my wellbeing a little more seriously, for the sake of my health and my career. I am not useful to anyone if I fall ill so easy does it going forward. I am going to relax a little and find some time to unwind without any gadget around me, like a holiday digital detox. So no laptops, phones, tablets or camera. I may schedule that for this weekend at some point, so don’t be too surprised if no new post is uploaded until Monday.

Enough of me moaning, back to the fun stuff now, I wore this outfit some days ago. The sandals and top are new wardrobe additions, and I adore them both.

The pink crochet lace peplum top is an excellent fit. I love the lace design and the pink colour is fab. It is a chic piece. I love the fact that I can style it in various ways.

The khaki tie-up suede block heel sandals is also fabulous. I love the tie-up design and the gold accent heel, which is a perfect height for me. The khaki colour is also pretty and new colour in my wardrobe. I can see myself rocking these two for many years to come.

Styling the Mister for a Day

I enjoy playing dress up as you should all know by now. I also enjoy dressing other people up, especially the Mister and the toddlers. Back in my stylist days, I use to take delight in shopping for others and dressing them up. Every now and again, I still find the time to style outfits for others, especially the Mister. He does not like shopping, so I pretty much do all the shopping for him. And I enjoy doing it.

If I was asked to dress him up for a day, here are the pieces I would pick from the SS16 Collection at House of Fraser:

 

Polo Ralph Lauren Custom-Fit Short Sleeve Polo Shirt £75

We love Ralph Lauren Polos in our house. They are iconic and super quality. We have quite a few we got some years ago, and they still look as good as new.

This royal blue piece would look amazing on the Mister. It is an amazing colour, would suit his skin undertone (more on undertones later this week, so look out for the post), and it is a perfect colour for the summer. The price tag may appear heavy at £75, but quality does not come cheap.

 

Versace Jeans Tiger Slim Fit Indigo Jean £120 £84

I have had my eye on this piece for a while now and I am extremely happy to see it is now on sale for £84. This Versace Jeans Tiger slim fit indigo jean would look amazing paired with the Ralph Lauren Polo. I like the shade of the blue, and I like the fact that it is slim fit. It would look amazing on Mister, that is for sure.

 

Tommy Hilfiger Suede Lace-up Trainers £85 £59.50

This Tommy Hilfiger Suede Lace-up Trainers is also on sale at the moment, which is brilliant. I love the compact design. The grey suede is a beauty, and it would complement the blue Polo shirt and Versace jeans perfectly. And I know the Mister would love it too.

 

Calvin Klein 2 Pack Fine Stripe Socks £12 £6

A bloke can never have too many socks, right? And an outfit with trainers will never be complete without socks. The Calvin Klein stripe socks is a good deal at just £6 at the moment. I like the simple design so much. It would be a lovely addition to his socks collection.

 

These are the pieces I would be picking up if I was asked to style the Mister for a day. What do you think of these pieces? Sound off in the comment section please.

Thanks for reading  and have a lovely Friday.

OOTD: Colour Me Beautiful*

Colourful Summer Outfit Image

 

There is something about a nice sunny weather that makes me feel alive and ready to put on my most colourful outfit. Summer does that to me and more. I don’t know about where you are at, but where I am, it feels like summer, and I am so loving it.  The only issue I have with the warm weather, is the sudden bolt of Hay Fever that comes along with it. Thankfully I think I have discovered the right meds, and the right method of managing it. I won’t let Hay Fever ruin my summer this year, the way it ruined it last year.

Back to this colourful outfit, I wore this outfit to an event some days ago, and I got loads of compliments. I fell in love with this beautiful summer embroidered Chill Out dress as soon as I laid my eyes on it on the Joe Browns website. Bursting with bright colours and designs, what is there not to love? It is a perfect wardrobe addition this season, and it is also going to be in my holiday wardobe for the year. So if I go anywhere nice, sunny and warm, this colour block beauty goes with me. It is a laid back look but very stylish. So it is perfect for the lounging by a pool or a beach, and it is stylish enough to rock to a birthday party at the same time.
