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.

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.

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.

Seasonal Looks – The Satin Wrap Top and Detailed Denim

December 10, 2017

We are the in the thick of the festive season of Christmas and seasonal looks are in demand. Whether it is your work Christmas party, catching up with friends or heading out to dinner parties. There is a lot going on! It really is a fun and loving season. And of course, you need to be looking on point. Seasonal Looks - The Satin Wrap Top and Detailed Denim

Seasonal Looks – The Satin Wrap Top and Detailed Denim

 In my last few posts, I have talked about ‘dressing casual’ cool and I still have kept that vibe when dressing up during this time of year.  Jeans is always a winner and I recently purchased new denim jeans from ASOS, which are so chic and luxe with the pearl detail that sits right underneath the front pockets, which are the perfect kind of denim to wear on a night out. I paired this up with an emerald wrap top from Nasty Gal, which I love as it an all rounder top to style up or down!

As you can also see, I have changed up my hair and doubled the length of my hair. I love it, I’ve always wanted ‘Naomi Campbell’ look and now I think I’ve achieved the look lol. 

This time of year I definitely spend time reflecting on how the year has been. I am truly thankful because it has been a GREAT year. I always go back to my journal and re-read what I wanted to accomplish and see what I stuck too, what I missed and use this time to meditate and strategize going forward into the new year with new goals and wisdom from the lessons I have learned so far. I hope you too use this time to relax and not be so hard on yourself for what didn’t work out, as everything will happen in its own good time. Always focus on maintaining a mindset of gratitude because the best is yet to come!

Freedom – Your Place Of Solitude

August 6, 2017

“Freedom – Your Place Of Solitude”

Freedom - Your Place Of Solitude

Freedom is one of those intangible things that we all want. Whether it is financial freedom or career freedom we cannot deny our hunger for it. When I shot these pictures I had just got back from holiday and felt free lol. I spent a week not worrying about anything back in London, I just woke up looked at my boyfriend feeling grateful that God has blessed me with such an amazing man, we laughed together and decided what we wanted to do that day and we did what we wanted. Doesn’t that sound like freedom? Plus I had a beautiful tan which I cannot wait to top up again.

Freedom - Your Place Of Solitude

I have been doing some soul searching and out of all the things I want out of life like money, dream house, dream wardrobe lol. More than anything I want everlasting freedom. I googled freedom and have shared what the definition is of freedom:

“The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants.”

Freedom - Your Place Of Solitude

It doesn’t even mention money or any material substances you think provides freedom, which is a reminder that freedom starts from the mind and finding solitude in that.  Your circumstances good or bad does not define freedom it is more your state of mind.

Freedom - Your Place Of Solitude

This also has a connection to style. When I feel and look good I feel free. I feel at my best when I present my best authentic self,  that to me is also freedom. This is something I always want to evoke as my style journey evolves over time.  As we grow it’s so important to remember freedom is not through material things and more about freedom and happiness in the mind first!

5 Days In Morocco

July 10, 2017

5 days in paradise, 5 days with my love, 5 days in Morocco.

5 days In Morocco, felt like 5 days in serenity! It was an amazing holiday embracing the culture, new experiences, food, and language. And I want to share it with you and let you know about all the fun things you can do in Morroco.


Day 1

Day 1 is always an open day as you just arrive and settle in. Well, we did just that and more. Starting with our hotel, we stayed at the Dellarosa Hotel, in the center of Marrakesh. It is a small boutique hotel which was really cute and simple. It had a modern Moroccan decor hotel, which was really beautiful. The only downside was our hotel room decor was a dark brown, which wasn’t great for capturing makeup tutorials because t was too dark. Another not so nice experience was the breakfast the options were not too great. But other than that it was a lovely hotel, sometimes you take the good with the bad I guess. It was close to everything and everywhere, which was perfect for us!

 

To round up on day 1 – We went for an afternoon walk and had lunch/dinner then relaxed in the pool at our hotel and in the evening went to Famous 555 Club. It really cool club that played everything I wanted to hear. I definitely recommend you going there (but don’t turn up before 12 pm they party until 5 am, so 1 am is like early)

 


Day 2 

It was an early start for a tourist day! I finally got to visit Rue Yves Saint Laurent garden. I didn’t know that it was originally owned by an architect Jardin Majorelle and then it was Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge then bought it once Jardin Majorelle passed away. To me, it’s a romantic creative story all about the love of art. And when you can there you feel it and see it. 

We also went to the Moroccan market. It felt so authentic being in the midst of it, hearing locals call me and boyfriend brother and sister. Hearing them persuaded to purchase whatever they had to offer. To be honest we enjoyed it and laughed with them as we walked by. 


Day 3 

5 days In Morocco

We got active!!! Definitely my boyfriends favourite day. We went Quad biking in the desert and then went camel riding. You can usually book these excursions through your hotel and it is really cheap and a full day experience. One to tick off the bucket list!

5 days In Morocco


Day 4 

Was a more fun!! We went to a beach house day party, it’s called Famous Beach and owned by the same people that run Club 555 that we went to on day 1. It’s a beautiful mansion, amazing decor (great to capture content) with many pools, Dj, restaurant, and bar. Everything you need in one place to relax and enjoy the sun! 


Day 5 5 days In Morocco

Ending our holiday on a high, we went for a beautiful walk enjoying the Moroccan city. It really is a beautiful city, cultural with so much to do and experience. I didn’t get a chance to go the atlas mountain, which is on my wishlist for the next time I go there. 

5 days In Morocco

I will also be sharing my FIRST VLOG – from this trip. I’m a freshman with Youtube so bare with me as I get to grips with it. 

All items I wore are linked for you to shop away too.

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!
