OOTD: The Oversized Trend & the Petite Woman

I got back from my birthday vacation from Milan yesterday, and I had a good time. I have been sharing snaps from my holiday on Instagram, so you can catch up on my Milan trip on Instagram. I will also been sharing some of my holiday snaps on the blog along with details of my trip soon, so look out for that post.

I am now trying to get back into the swing of things. I travelled with my iPad Pro and Keyboard, hoping I would be able to get some work done but I was unable to. I was having so much fun, I didn’t even have time to publish a blog post. Yes Milan was that good, and I can’t wait to go back. The shops were so amazing. I was like a kid in a candy store!

I took these photos in Essex some weeks ago. It was a cold wet day, but the rain stopped just in time for me to get these shots taken.

I have fallen in love with the oversized trend. I have always liked the trend, but I seem to be picking more and more oversized pieces lately. As a petite lady, I find it odd that they look good on me. I previously wrote about style tips for the petite woman, and it is funny I broke a few rules here. But it is allowed for an oversized look.

This is the trend I am into for now. Who knows what I will be into next month!

However, there is a very thin line between looking stylish and looking frumpy when it comes to rocking oversized pieces. So thin, many cross it everyday without knowing. I think I should write a post on that, what do you think?

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?

Sound off in the comment section. Thanks for reading.

Sweet Spring Day

So it is officially spring here in England but it still doesn’t feel like it. We have had rain almost everyday now which comes together with spring,  but it is still cold and quite windy most days here in Cheshire. I am sick of layering up now. I am so looking forward to the warmer months ahead.

I have to find the time to get my spring and summer clothes out of storage soon though. I should have that sorted this week or next hopefully. I also need to get some accessories, blazers and other new season pieces. All will be done in time I guess. 24 hours in a day is so not enough for me anymore.

Anyone else looking forward to the warmer months? Excuse the picture heavy post, I just could not decide on what to post and what to get rid of, so I posted all.
