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

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!

Spring Is Here Or Nah?

March 15, 2017

It’s Mid-March and I hope that means spring is here. But I won’t hold my breath, London is very temperamental and before you know it we are in a season of constant rain. Winter is boring now, wearing jumpers is annoying and the cold is quite depressing. Spring is cooler, you can enjoy the day for longer and for me, personally it makes me happier and positive.

I’ve been really keen on spring because I want to play with colour & be more confident with a variety of shades that I choose. So basically I need the sun to give me a an excuse to wear red trousers and a pink shirt (that is quite a colour combo trend for summer FYI)

Last year I kept it safe. Neutral colour palettes are the staple pieces in my wardrobe currently. Even though that is cool, it feels very bland and safe. To be honest that is not the space that I am in at all. I want to experiment with my style, push the envelope (within remit lol).

So when I saw these red flare trousers from Zara I was like yassss, there so classy, a real staple piece. The top is also a hot piece too, the puffer sleeves giving me vintage Vivienne Westwood, Oscar De La Renta, I love it. When I saw it I was thinking £20.00 for a luxury look and feel sold!

So I guess this is a start, again sticking to building a classic wardrobe whilst incorporating colour. I definitely will be sharing more colour, shapes and fun vibes!

Ripped Jeans – Mixed with a thought piece on knowledge!

March 2, 2017

The other day I got a message from someone on my Instagram asking – What do you think of Ripped jeans? And I said I love it, its fun. It was a random question but it really ticked that ripped jeans is a key trend that is impactful to looks.

Again I am wearing my favourite staple brand Wolford! This time I’m wearing the Opaque Transparent Nature body. It soft, stretchy, with asymmetric detail that adds some detail.

Now to more important chit chat!

Knowledge Is Power – This saying was said to me so many times as a child and NOW as a 25 year old have I really deeped and understood it. Especially in my career and knowing how to deal with people in the work place, colleagues, senior members of staff. As a blogger, knowing how to communicate assertively but classy, knowing how to negotiate with brands so that you I don’t be a disservice to myself.

You have to know your stuff. You have to be equipped with the knowledge, the wisdom and the facts to move forward fearlessly in all aspects of your life. A key tool to do this is knowledge. Going into any environment blindly is dangerous. Engaging in experiences and not being prepared to shine and own your contribution and value in any situation is a BIG dis-service to yourself!

Let’s do better. If you want to get into the blogging/YouTube world research, find out what you like and how you would like to contribute to the blogger-sphere. Want to be a creative director? Again research make that your life (not take over your life) but embrace the passion, determination and be clued up so that you can deliver to the best of your ability. What ever it is the same principle applies.

I’m sharing this because it is a trait I have been consciously embracing and activating in my life and i’m seeing the fruits of my labour and it feels amazing. I want you to feel this way too!

Net tights, Net bodies and Net Lace! The Fashion Style Accessory For SS17

February 22, 2017

The phenomenon style accessory for SS17, Net Fashion Tights and Bodies. It is an affordable accessory that is edgy and adds a personal sassy touch to an outfit. Before we get to the stage of being sick of every everyone it. Let’s appreciate it for a minute lol becuase I love it!

You can imagine how excited I was to receive this amazing Net Lace from Wolford. Made from Polyamid and nylon the varying net looks ensure that the feminine silhouette is put in its best light. The minimalist finish is created through fashionable three-quarter sleeve. And in a thong briefing style for a sexy finish!

The Net Lace Body Is one of my favourite pieces from the Wolford’s ss17 trend collection. From what we know of the brand, luxury basics and classic staple pieces that are timeless additions to your wardrobe. With this particular body it adds a innovative flare to the selection of trend options. The sexy, stylish top also attracts a younger demographic to the brand (like me).

Dorsett Hotel Shepherds Bush

Relaxing at the Dorsett Hotel, Luxury Suite. The modern and minimal decor was a great juxtaposition atmosphere to capture my outfit. Keeping it cosy but feminine I wore boyfriend fit white jeans, (to be honest I wished the trousers had abit more baggy FYI) along with my caged BCBG Maxazria heels. I mixed patterns to capture the fun details of the top with what would be my go to pickings, heels and trousers lol.

Retailing at £200.00 the Net Lace String Body is a pricey for a body but with the quality and the versatile style, it is something you will wear more time than you know. If it’s a staple piece my opinion is to purchase it.

Wolford SS17 ‘Patti’ mixed with deep talk like – Change

February 13, 2017

I think change has been one of my biggest teachers of my 2016. To which I have experienced good and bad change that has now opened my eyes to what really matters in life.

Recently I did an interview for a dear friend and talked about my experienced check it out here. My career is something that I have spoken about before regarding my highs and lows. So I won’t get into that all over again. Back to the subject of change is inevitable and you have to move in that change. As we get older our prospective and fulfilment in life evolves. It is not about expensive shoes or having the hottest bags. To me family, love, true friendships and enjoying real moments.

For me that’s the mind-set that brings happiness, peace and love. Through all my experiences I have never felt the power of these intangible emotions flow through my life, as strongly as they are now.

Wolford Patti Tights

Now to the fashion! New Year and new fashion.

I’m back collaborating with one of my favourite brands Wolford. They have launched new SS17 hosiery trends that are 10 steps ahead of the game. We all know and have seen the net tights hype be one of the biggest fashion trends of recent. Wolford have really pushed the boundaries and gone on to create a new style that has a lot of flare and swag.

I had a beautiful deluxe suite at the Dorset Hotel that I had the luxury of spending the day at. IWanted to push my creative vision when capturing the detail of the tights. It is not about being sexy here, but creating a moment that shows how the tights shaped around a body and adds to your style, no matter how you style it. ‘Patti‘has been released in the sock stockings but will be released early spring of the full hosiery tights.

Floral Tales – Introducing colour and detail into my wardrobe!

January 23, 2017

Floral Tales – Introducing colour and detail into my wardrobe! 

With all that’s going on in the U.K with Brexit and in the U.S with Donald Trump and the presidential election. So I may not have all the answers for that. But I guess I can bring some positive and light inspiration for you fashion girls!

Floral Tales – I want to introduce colour & details such as floral into my wardrobe. Last year I bought a lot of basics and core colours, as well as my denim collection back up, as it was very weak. Now when I look in my wardrobe I have no colourful key pieces that adds some fun. (Waves white flag) I am NOT advertising go out and go spend more LOL. I am all about saving as much as you can, but we can always ball on a budget.

Now with that disclaimer out the way lol! I did a tiny bit of sale shopping and with my floral & colour lack in my closet. Post Boxing Day sales I picked up this Zara bodysuit which was only like £12.00 bargain guys bargain! Red is a striking classic colour, along with floral detail for a nice contrast. I paired it with black mid-rise Frame Denim jeans that fit so perfectly. I have struggled to find jeans since I have gone up a size, so happy to find a pair that hug the right places. I highly recommend them tell them Olivia sent you LOL 🙂

Double Up With Flare Denim

January 15, 2017

One of my newest purchases is a paire of denim flares. I am currently loving denim especially flared denim! It is a sassy upgrade to regular pair of jeans, adding some variety. I saw these jeans on Miss Guided and I instantly gravitated towards the flared detail at the bottom. And I also bought a fringe shoulder jumper from Zara. I thought it was a perfect outfit combo to put together that works well. Simple sexy and sassy. (I didn’t mean to rhyme here lol)

I want to really enjoy the process of evolving whether it is on trend or not and build key staple piece that will last forever in my wardrobe. This explains my first style post of 2017 that I want to share with you and hope it inspires you to get back to your core style essence and just enjoy building your core wardrobe!

Personal Style – For me personally this year I want to not compromise my style and just be me. I think sometimes as a blogger you feel to follow trends. Sometimes it doesn’t always fit well with your individual style. And that is OK!

For example flare trousers may not work for you but you can take some inspiration by the colour palette of the look. Or perhaps switch the flare for baggy jeans or a skinny fit. Nothing never has to be taken as identical but if there is an aspect of my style that you gravitate too, then I am doing something right here LOL.

I also want to share my health and fitness journey with you guys too!

I started the gym at the end of 2016 and it is something I have been really enjoying and plan on weaving into my life for good!
