Autumn Tonals – Brown My New Nude

October 28, 2018

Autumn is here, which means clocks go back and the nights get darker quicker. But more importantly, autumn fashion is in full effect. Its all about the Autumn Nude.

The dark beige, rust brown and burnt orange tones that seem to be ruling the high street. As I walked througOxfordrd street last week. I popped into Mango, Zara and H&M and that was the main colour palette that was reigning the shop window. As well as the craze for leopard print too!

Autumn Tonals - Brown My New Nude

To be honest, it’s only the last year that I have warmed t this tone. A few years ago, I thought this shade of brown wouldn’t look nice on me it will drow me out and I would like bland. Crazy right? But thank god for growth, self-love and confidence. I love it and has become a favourite shade to wear in summer and in winter.

This whole is from Zara of course as they are nailing the various key trends for winter. The trousers are cord material in a rust brown shade which fit amazing. a low/mid rise flared trousers, channelling 70’s era. I don’t have any flares in my wardrobe, so this was a nostalgic purchase as I would always be in flares in school back when we had ‘own clothes day’.

Autumn Tonals - Brown My New Nude

I wore this with a matching long sleeve crochet weaved top. which felt amazing on. It also comes in white, which I plan to get as it is a perfect brown. I wore this with my Stuart Weitzman wrap leg heeled sandals which is a classic heel that works with the most outfit I tend to wear.

So yes, I will e being brown, dark brown staples for my wardrobe as I loveeeeee this shade and can’t believe it took me this long to like it. This is why fashion is so important even though it is only clothes. Trends and colours come back and something that you may not of like in the past becomes a personal favourite and element of your style evolution which I just a reminder about like. You have an opportunity to change what you don’t like or change your mindset!

Embellishment Is The New Statement Piece – Additions To My Wardrobe

September 22, 2018

Embellishment Is The New Statement Piece

I may be late or may be early, but I don’t always follow trends. But I have now introduced the embellishment trend into my wardrobe. When I saw this skirt I thought I had to have it. I never really wear glitter and sparkle, I previously went quite simple and nude tones. But I feel like I am trying new things. I said in my last few fashion posts that my style is evolving I don’t want to be put in a box when it comes to style. So I am buying what I love and what will stand the test of time. A mix of timeless and statement pieces for the wardrobe. 

Zara-Embellishment

When I think of embellishment I think of designers such as Balmain, Giuseppe Zanotti, Moschino, Julien MacDonald and many others. They really use glitter and crystals to elevate the look of a dress and shoe. It adds glamour and makes the outfit a clear show-stopping moment. 

Zara-Embellishment

That’s how I feel when I’m getting dressed to go out and where this skirt its a statement and sparkles from afar. I bought this skirt from Zara and it’s only £30.00 which is an amazing price point for a skirt like this. It is sewn really well and doesn’t look like it will fall apart. I kept the styling simple so I could focus on the fun detail of the skirt. 

Zara-Embellishment

I wore a white top from Primark (great quality 100% cotton) which I intend on buying loads more. but yes, a simple top, paired with classic Christian Louboutins. For winter the is to still wear embellishment but with jumper and boots for that those winter statement moments. Remixing your key staples really help you get the best out of clothes in your wardrobe. So plan on seeing remixed outfits on my Instagram, where I post all of my #ootd moments.

Vintage Levis – The Never Ending Denim Stable

August 22, 2018

Vintage Levis are the most practical and diverse stable pieces of clothes to have in your wardrobe. The best thing is, you can get on eBay. That is where I have bought all of my Levis products.

Shopping On eBay Levis

Since I have been making more of a conscious effort to buy items that last and that are very versatile. Denim has always been the one thing that you can get the most wears out of and work for ALL occasions. This year I had to purchase a new pair of denim shorts, as I have put on a bit of (happy) weight over the last 6 months and needed to get a bigger size. I did not want to spend £50 on another Levi and remembered easy it is just to get a second-hand pair from eBay. The newly purchased shorts cost me a total of £12 including packaging. Bargain!

It made me realise how handy it is to purchase off eBay, as you can get a really good steal of there. I also have purchased vintage Levi vintage denim jacket which was only around £25, it has that old feel, which makes it even more perfect.

LevisLevis

I styled the shorts with a sand oversized blouse from Zara which has crochet detailing. A real summer casual day outfit. I spent the rest of the day walking around London and going for lunch with my Boyfriend. Summer days are always better when you spend time outside and explore where you are in the sun.

My summer go-to heeled sandals have been these white sandals from Topshop. They too also work with most looks and are very comfortable. I have linked where you can get these from directly.

Simple, Beautiful In Terracotta

August 9, 2018

Simple, Beautiful Terracotta. What a stunning colour for darker skin tones. I never thought I would wear this shade.  I was always the blush pink/ nude girl. But My eyes have seen better. Not sure about you, but I have been finding it hard to shop for things. My sense of style is becoming more distinctive and I know exactly what I want. 

 

 

Fast fashion is really taking over in the blogging and fashion world, which I do think is great because it allows everyone to explore different trends within good price points. But on the other hand, there is so much out there, sometimes when I’m online shopping I get lost and don’t know what I’m looking for any more. So I took a break from buying anything!

Simple, Beautiful In Terracotta

And then I came across this lovely Zara dress, which is a wardrobe must-have.  What’s so good about a dress like this is, it is very versatile. You can wear it with heels, sandals and even trainers depending on your personal sense of style of occasion. I do like to keep things chic and feminine because my sense of style all derives from women in my family growing up look effortless and beautiful in simple pieces such as this dress. all the time. 

Simple, Beautiful In Terracotta

Now when I am shopping I try to think timeless mostly, of course, there some statements that are just for now but you make timeless. For the most part, timeless is my mindset when I am thinking of my mood or vibe when shopping. What I have realised is that my sense of style is evolving at the same time. What I wouldn’t buy or wear such as the printed skirt and shirt by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, I did on my Instagram I love it now. It is just a reminder that fashion changes but style evolves.

Shop Tobi Favourites – Two Different Looks To Suit You

May 15, 2018

Shop Tobi Favourites 

As I was packing looks for my LA trip this year, it was so important to have easy looks. A few key items were wide leg pants, two-piece co-ord sets and dresses that were easy to take me through the day to night.

So I selected a few items from ShopTobi.com that were exactly my style. I styled them how I exactly it wore on holiday, and also versatile ways you can mix and match a wide leg trouser.

Shop Rust Tobi Co-Ord Set 

My Shop Tobi Favourites My Shop Tobi Favourites My Shop Tobi FavouritesMy Shop Tobi Favourites

The easiest outfit is a co-ord set to wear. You don’t have to think about what top to wear with what bottom you can just get dressed and go. Which is amazing, because sometimes I don’t want to think about what am I going to wear? I just want to get dressed and leave the house lol and enjoy the day. And that’s exactly what I did when I wore this in LA. 

Shop Tobi Wide Lenght Pants – Mix  & Matched 

Shop Tobi My Shop Tobi Favourites

Mixing and matching for me when getting dressed, is 100% dependant on my mood. If I want to feel free and comfortable a wide length bottom is perfect. To dress it up heeled sandals is my go to, which is simple and quite versatile and allows you to wear whatever top you want, depending on where you are going.  As you know London weather can be indecisive so to stay warm and cool, I styled my Shop Tobi pants with a Champion jumper and heeled sandals for a little feminine sass. These trousers are amazing quality, if you look closely it is a track pant style but its tailored to perfection. You can wear it with a blazer and jazz it up or you can wear it with a jumper and trainers and keep it sports luxe.

Girl On A Mission – Entering Chapter 27

April 8, 2018
As I turn 27 within the next few days, I have been reflecting on how far I have come. I feel like as I get older I am a girl on a mission. I am more focus now more than over, I feel very centred in where I am in life and feel very content with it. Don’t get me wrong I continue to strive for so much more and my ambition is only growing. But I have come to understand that you really have to be ok with where you are now in life to prepare yourself for what is coming ahead of you.
26 has still been a fun age and I have grown so much, the wisdom that I have now makes me cherish any pain or misfortune that I have experienced in the past whether personally or professionally. I have come to realise It is all about of my journey.

Girl On A Mission Girl On A Mission

As I go into my 27th year of life, I now know that as much as you plan your life it will never be linear and anything can happen. What I am sure of is the key goals I want to achieve. I am so sure of visualisation and verbally proclaiming your blessing ahead of time, as things really become what you speak. To give an example. I wrote in my journal at the beginning of 2017 that I would love to write for Marketing week, by November 2017 I was on Marketing Week as a marketing guest on tier podcast. And It didn’t even stop there. In March 2018 they reached out again and asked to contribute to an article and out of all the speaker my name and image was used as the main marketer for this article, giving me and my initiative so much coverage and awareness. This was all completely beyond what I thought I could achieve. And it all started with a ‘mustard seed’ approach by writing down one small goal.

Girl On A Mission – Entering Chapter 27 

I really am a girl on a mission, my dreams are so big that it scares me! But I am so excited about it because it is exciting, daunting but all amazing. We have one life and I am committed and focused on assuring I fulfil my purpose and enjoy what I have been blessed with. I have amazing siblings and family, a strong solid friendship that are basically family and an amazing partner. Cheers to the 26 years and 27 I am ready for you!

Spring Is Here – Yellow and Orange Colour Palette

March 31, 2018

I am so excited for Spring and can finally say it is here, well kind of. London has been confused with the weather conditions. one minute its nice outside, the next day its raining. But with the longer brighter days it’s all a good sign. 

This time of year I really start to have fun with my wardrobe, my style comes to life during spring/summer season. I like to play with colour, shapes and textures. And not having to worry about layering to keep warm or your whole outfit being overpowered by a huge coat. That is a style killer for me to be honest. 

Spring

What are you guys looking forward to this summer? For me, it’s travelling exploring London, working on cool projects and most if all ‘living my best life’! 

I shot this really cool spring look, wearing yellow tailored Zara pants that I got in the sale. I paired it with old season H&M studio blouse. It really gives a bit of the 70’s style with the baggy arms and turtleneck detail, which I love. I paired it with black Stuart Weitzman sandal heels for a classic finish. I know that I could dress it down but personally, i think heels give it a classy finish. 

Spring Spring

Yellow and orange are set to be s big colour trend for spring/summer 19, which I got into on during a fashion trend forecasting meeting at work. These tones remind me of the winter leaves fallen due to autumn being over and making room for new vibrant green leaves to grow and welcome the summer season. I shot this look next to vintage Bentley, which gave a great visual representation of London and the city that I live in. Would you rock this look? If so, I have linked below where you can replicate this look from 🙂
