Wide Length Pants – Autumn Season

November 8, 2017

My new favourite go-to for the winter season, wide length pants. For a night out or a dinner party, I have been drawn towards a fancy trouser that is sung and cozy to tackle the wind of the winter weather. 

Wide Length Pants - Autumn Season

I recently have been expanding where I shop, and I popped into H&M and checked out their trend collection. FYI – It is one of the best high street offerings in the market. It really has runway trends as high street pieces, which isn’t as known to all general customers, unless you are fashion, fashion girl (in my opinion)! I fell in love with these wide length pants as it is a solid material which holds the shape of the trousers. The warm dirty orange is the perfect autumn colourway for this season.

I paired it up with a satin top with a cut of shoulder and frill end sleeve. I love the mix and match of the two tones paired together. 

Lately, I have been so busy settling into a new job role that I have been very excited to be doing and immersing myself into that. So apologies for the delayed post! As you know I work in marketing and that is a separate journey from blogging that I enjoy. I definitely will be sharing more, but into the new year. 

For me having more than one stream of income is SO important, as we get older we should be thinking about how you want to live your life. So I focusing on setting up my streams of income using my skills and gifts to be purposeful. So as there are high and lows in the social media world, be mindful to build a life that is lucrative off of it.

That Winter Coat – Phillip Lim

October 23, 2017

Have You Got Your Winter Coat Yet? That Winter Coat That Everyone Is Talking About - Phillip Lim

Well, I have! Sort of. As you may have read in previous posts I’m all for comfortable clothing these days. Nothing comes more comfortable than a sung winter coats and jackets. That was one of my top items to shop for and did I get a bargain?! It is all down to @ldnsamplesales. It is a company that shares the latest designer sample sales. To be honest, when I saw that Phillip Lim was having a sample sale I wasn’t sold just because I didn’t want to spend any more money (as I have of recent) but then you know what happens when you and your girls together lol. Shopping! I ended up in the Phillip Lim sample with this amazing rabbit fur shearling waistcoat which retails at £1,200 but I got it for £50.00!

YES, £50.00 honestly sample sales is the best thing that I have discovered and I’m letting you know too! Winter Winter

 

I kept it simple and rocked a wide length PJ style trousers from MissGuided and a low cut oversized top. For a dressy look, I styled it with Pigalle’s which is a perfect look for a winter date night fit. But champion casual vibes, I do regularly wear the waistcoat with sneakers/vans, jeans, and a T-shirt. This stunning Phillip Lim gem jacket dresses up your day look so easy, which is great as I don’t have to put that much thought into your day look when I wear it.

Winter Colour Block – Mixing Textures and Colours Autumn 17

October 12, 2017

The afternoons are getting shorter and the evenings are getting longer, which means winter is here. I am easing my way into my winter wardrobe by mixing textures, colours. I am leaving towards comfortable looks which are still feminine, flirty and casual. As I get older my tolerance for the cold gets less and less. I can feel it in my bones more (basically I’m getting old lol).

Introducing you to my winter wardrobe

Winter Colour BlockWinter Colour Block

I brought back my pink fluffy jumper I got from H&M last winter, which I bought 2 sizes bigger, so it has that sung feel and drops on me like a hanger. I colour block this jumper with a satin finish rouge red A-line skirt, also from H&M. I love the clash of red and pink, it is a strong combination and really stands out, but also fits with the winter feel because of the clash of textures.

Adding some sass to this look I wore gold River Island heels that I have had for years that look identical to Aquazzara but are not lol. What I love about this look is, you can easily switch the heels with trainers and wear a pair of Stan Smiths and still look just as good.

So as I start to pull out my winter favourites, let me know what you would like to see and what your winter comfort go too’s?

Self Reflection – Be Present And Don’t Let Confusion Conquer

June 23, 2017

Self reflection. 

So I am a confident advocate of not loosing things! Honestly I will always say, I don’t loose things. But how my life has changed in the past 4 weeks I have lost key Items that are so important to running around. My work phone, Oyster and a few other things. I have been so annoyed at myself, like when did i get so careless or absent minded. Out of all the flaws I have, those were not it.

But today I have surrounded, I message my girls and was like: Thats it, my name is Olivia and I loose things! I have to admit it and let it go. 

Its something that sounds silly but then all my girls said to me was: your not focused, your mind is busy. And there right my mind has been occupied. I have been thinking about a few things but I didn’t know it had really subconsciously taking over. 

So in sharing my annoying experiences, it self sharing self reminder to take time out and be still. Its clear my mind cloudy with a lot and I just need to focus and relax so I can correctly move in the flow of my purpose and calling. And not get wrapped up in my mind and my thoughts, its god who leads the way and thats who I need to lean on at this time where things are shifting!

Now To Fashion & Style

The area that never fails me! Summer is finally here which is my favourite season, I am happy, awake and just have an overall better vibe. We thank God for the vitamin D the sun supplies us with. When its sunny with a little breeze, this is an outfit I have worn many times which I love. Playing and shapes and print with denim flared jeans and stripe gathered top. Its easy and such a effortless, effort combo!

White Summer Lace – Style Tales With A Thought Piece!

June 13, 2017

White Summer Lace For The Win! 

White lace In summer is a cute, fun and chic ensemble to style during the season. I have always loved the colour white and would always wear it as my birthday dress colour in the past, just because the shade is so regal. White is the perfect colour that stands out without being too ‘loud’. It it a classic, neutral tone that works with a many other colours.

White Summer Lace White Summer Lace

I bought this sheer lace blouse which I got from Zara and knew how I wanted to wear it. I preferred the larger fit so that I could throw it over a top or bra-let which I have here. But in future I can also wear it as a throw over, over a bikini. A versatile piece that you can style in different ways is alway handy!

Keeping it classic I wore, flared white trousers and a cream bra-let and accessorised with my new white my Chlòe inspired white hand bag from Mango!

Thought Piece – Gram Generation vs Doing The Work

currently I have been thinking, as i always do about the gram generation that I am in an how we shouldn’t get lost in the sauce of watching too much and just do the work. With the ‘Gram Generation’ where people are constantly showing off what they’ve got, done or achieved. You can get caught up just watch and who has time to just be watching? Its crazy how you can get lost in the sauce of being the person to ‘catch the tea’ or see what’s popping first.

The disadvantages of this, is HUGE. Being in my mid-20’s the time is now it put in the work and craft and shape the career and life that i want for myself. I think many of readers can relate to this, as I am aware that many girls that follow my blog, Instagram  or twitter are hardworking girls trying to make it. Even though we support each other and visit blogs, watch Youtube video’s and all things like that. The message here is to use that as inspiration to focus what you want to achieve and crack on with it. As I said In my #Lifeofamarketinggirl post, its better to take risk than stand still!

The Iconic Blazer – Maxa Mara Inspired!

June 3, 2017

The iconic Max Mara blazer or Zara? – Lets talk about it!

I have been quiet on the blog lately, sorry! May was a month of working on various projects that’s been taking up my time, which has been more of the behind the scenes work that I do such as, fashion marketing and PR work. I will be revealing more in my #LifeOfAMarketingGirl section next week. I know some of my followers have asking for me to share more about all of that, so I plan on sharing personal work stories for ya’ll!

Blazer Blazer

Lets talk about this jacket now, as it is a major staple piece that is going into my wardrobe!

Previously in one of my style post, I spoke about fast fashion and how I wasn’t really inspired by much as of late. Then last week I was scrolling on the Zara website (as you do) and saw this blazer and thought OMG my mum would love this. It reminds of one of my favourite brands Max Mara who are renowned for creating the most amazing, classic, iconic blazers.

Blazer

What I love most about this jacket is that you can wear it over and over again, in various styles. And it reminded me to get back on track and continue to shop for classics to build a staple piece wardrobe collection. Starting with luxe basics that are versatile through the season. Zara have a lot of chic blazers and jackets at the moment in many colours but red struck my attention because it was a bold red, that compliments what I already have in my wardrobe.

Blazer

I styled the blazer with exactly how I would like to wear it out for date night. Forever 21 lace bra-let and flared trousers from Zara. Completing for a classic, sexy and feminine look. I’m thinking to style the jacket on it’s own next with knee high boots!

Return Of The Mac!

May 16, 2017

Mac Jackets are oh so necessary when the sun is ‘sometimish’ and the wind is more consistent than the sun.

A few weekends ago it was a very busy one. Non stop running around starting with shooting content for the blog and writing reviews and insights for the #lifeofamarketinggirl segment, which i hope you guys are enjoying! Then I whisked my way to the other side of London and had an afternoon brunch hosted by a lovely blogger friend @bdblggr you may be following her if not, you should do so! We ate and talked for ages, not really about but life and evolving as we are in our mid 20’s. Lastly I then ended Westfield shopping with my friends shopping!

ISA LOOK

mac mac

I really didn’t want to look ‘matchy, matchy’. There was a voice in my head that was saying’ mix it up, wear something random. And that’s exactly what I did. I knew I wanted to be comfortable so wearing tight clothes was not a desire. I threw on this stripy shirt from Zara which is so easy to wear with anything. I paired the top with comfortable stretchy jeans from Zara (that shop is giving me luxury visuals right now with their pieces) and completed my look with Next’s blue Mac jacket and leather Zebra pumps.

I was comfortable, chic and free. A style combo I recommend for any city girl running round trying to do it all!
