Try-day Friday – Dare to be brave with your next outfit

How often do you try on an amazing new outfit, take a look in the mirror and then chuck it to the the back of your wardrobe and opt for something you ALWAYS wear.

It’s probably something black isn’t? We’ve all been there… every day… trust me.

I was recently inspired by Dia&Co, an online subscription box, and their ‘Try-Day Friday’ project to encourage self-esteem and I couldn’t wait to get on board. From today onwards,  Friday isn’t just the last day before the weekend (hallelujah!) it’s so much better. Friday brings us the opportunity to get over our fears of bold colours, short skirts and tight tops!

Everyone feels insecure from time-to-time whether it be a fear of showing off that extra bit of skin or ALWAYS turning to the same practical items in your wardrobe. We all like to hide our perceived flaws – I am definitely guilty of this too – but really we should be embracing them because life would be SO boring if everyone looked the same.

Everyone is beautiful in their own individual way, so let’s all bite the bullet and wear that daring outfit that we bought God knows how long ago and STILL haven’t worn!
Gone are the days of hiding behind a boring wardrobe and only imagining ‘pulling off’ your dream outfits from Style Icons’ Instagram posts !

My outfit wishlist (fears)

I’ve put together some of my dream outfits I’d love to wear but happen to find my self saying the same phrases whenever pI go to try them on.

‘It’s too bold’

  1. Pink cropped faux fur jacket, bluebanana.com £28
  2. Black floral print pencil skirt, River Island £30
  3. Gold tiered statement necklace, GILT.com £23
  4. Pink faux fur crossbody bag, SoleSociety.com £36
  5. Gold sock boot with block heel, River Island £25

I always like to shy away from clothes with too much colour, fabric and pattern- purely because I hate to stand out in a crowd.

I probably own at least 5 different midi skirts but I’m so self conscious about my short stumpy legs… that – yep you guessed it – they’re obviously hidden in dust at the back of my wardrobe.

This is probably the reason I always end up wearing the same clothes I feel comfortable in without drawing too much attention to myself.

‘It’s too OTT- I’m not a bloody supermodel’

  1. Burgundy dress, Topshop £62
  2. Black fedora hat, Belk.com £39
  3. Black over-the-knee boots, pilotuk.com £50

I dream about wearing numerous fedora hats whenever I’m booking city breaks away… please tell me I’m not the only one who does this?! Haha! But whenever it comes to packing my suitcase I’m just never brave enough because I just think other people will be like ‘who does she think she is trying to pull off a Kendal Jenner look’!

‘It’s not my style’

Blue velvet choker bralett, prettylittlething.com £8.43

Leather skater skirt, boohoo.com £15

Red and black checked shirt, rosegal.com £9.52

Matte red lipstick, Charlotte Tilbury £23

So many items in my wardrobe are spontaneous buys – often in the sale and naughty treats to myself – but far too many of them aren’t worn. This is purely because I don’t think they ‘suit my style’ (whatever that is?!) and imagine they would just look better on someone else.


MY TRY-DAY OOTD

Try-day is the perfect opportunity to bring out the clothes you’ve always wanted to try, but have been too scared to.


I’ve combined all my fears together in this one outfit and although I felt stupid in too much colour, patterns, fur and skin on show by the end of the day I was actually strutting around with confidence! I was feeling so brave I even brought out the red lipstick!!

Checked pattern midi skit, Topshop

Crop faux fur khaki jacket, Missguided

Black gold pendant choker, New Look

Lilac glitter cami, Topshop

Red strappy heels, New Look

Red lipstick, Rimmel 

If I can do it you can too! I challenge you to wear that leather mini skirt, flaunt those Boho flares, and try on those daunting high heels, even if you’re hesitant. Brush aside your fears and rock the outfit you’ve always admired with absolute confidence!
I hope I can given you some inspiration and motivation to face your own fashion fears next Try-Day. I promise you will ALL look and feel GREAT!

Cosy night in

    Happy Valentine’s Day everyone – I hope you have a very fab and stylish day!

    How To Create a Capsule Wardrobe

    How To Create a Capsule Wardrobe

    And still be a fashionista

    Is your New Year’s resolution to finally save some money, but you just so happen to be a serious shopaholic? Well you’re in the same boat as me. (Read More: How to Keep Your New Years Resolutions) I am constantly making plans to travel the world and telling myself I WILL save money, just after I buy these shoes… that go perfectly with this dress. Yes, it happens every time, and of course I still haven’t made enough for my dream trip.

    Well this New Year is going to be different and it can be for you too – whether you want to save to travel to paradise or buy yourself that one designer handbag you’ve had your eye on. You just need to get yourself the perfect Capsule Wardrobe and your goals will be met in no time.

    screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-17-58-29

    What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

    In simplest terms, a capsule wardrobe is an extremely downsized wardrobe made up of versatile staple pieces. The idea originates from 1970s London, when boutique owner Susie Faux coined the term. Designer Donna Karan then brought the idea to the U.S. a decade later with her “seven easy pieces” collection. Traditionally, capsule wardrobes include approximately 30 items or less, with Faux recommending less than 12. The wardrobe can be added to a couple times a year.

    The definition of a capsule wardrobe has evolved over time thanks to ideas from style bloggers like Un-Fancy, whose capsule wardrobe includes 37-pieces rotated every three months.

    At its core, a capsule wardrobe is ultimately meant to promote a minimalist style and save money, time, and space — things I’m all for! To me, a capsule wardrobe should include ever-lasting clothes and reusable accessories that will take you from the office to the dance floor without your friends hearing you say, ‘but I haven’t anything to wear – I need a new outfit’ for the 100 billionth time!

    I’ve been busy collaborating with Betabrand.com to come up with the essential wardrobe I believe every woman needs to save them time, money, and hassle for every morning and every event.

    Capsule Wardrobe Essentials Checklist

    To save money, time and effort you want your wardrobe to be full of gorgeous items that can be everyday wear for the office and can easily be accessorised to take you through to the after work drinks and spontaneous night-time dancing. If you love the items you’ve chosen, you will always enjoy wearing them over and over again, styling them in new ways.

     

    These are the 6 essentials you need to own and can easily purchase online to complete your capsule wardrobe.

    1. PantsMy pick: High-waisted dress pant yoga trousers £61.50, Betabrand.com
    2. SkirtMy pick: Nude faux leather pencil skirt £13.32, Choies.com
    3. Crisp White Shirt My pick: Fitted white shirt £12.99, H&M
    4. Statement Necklace My pick: Statement silver necklace £29.97, humblechic.com
    5. Black Handbag My pick: Black zip handbag £25.99, New Look
    6. Boots My pick: Knit-trim black ankle boots £20.33, charlotterusse.com

    [Insert image here with image alt text that says “capsule wardrobe essentials”]

    The most versatile item on this list is definitely the Betabrand pants. I love these pants because they are the ideal office trousers – comfy, stylish and smart – yet totally multi-functional. The stretchy material gives you the flexibility to still do yoga after work or in your lunch-break and the skinny leg gives you a flattering shape when paired with heels and sparkles for a night out.

    Hallelujah to the 2-in-1 amazing trousers! They also come in every style to suit your body shape including Cropped-leg for petites.

    screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-17-24-46

    Black is a great colour to opt for because it goes with everything but I also love the dark grey yoga pants too which are just as everyday.

    Once you’ve got your comfy trousers in a classic shade you need one more option for work – a simple and smart pencil skirt. I chose this faux leather midi because it’s a fab neutral shade to pair with a crisp white shirt for work or crop tops for the evenings. Find the pair of women’s pants you love most here.

    How to Build Your Own Stylish Capsule Wardrobe

    These are my steps to curating your own capsule wardrobe, without sacrificing style or the joy we all get from fashion.

    Step 1 — Clean Out Your Closet

    Firstly – do you really need everything that’s in your wardrobe? We both know the answer is No. So don’t wait until Spring — have a wardrobe clean out today and get on Vinted or eBay to make some extra money. Those poor clothes that still have their tags on need a caring home. It’s just plain clothes cruelty! Check out my Vinted page for cheap dresses, tops, jumpers, trousers and skirts for sale in great condition.

    Step 2 — Pick Your Essentials

    Once you’ve gotten rid of what you know you don’t want, it’s time to sort what’s left into three categories:

    1. Currently love / wear
    2. Seasonal
    3. Other

    Guess what happens to the “other” category? That’s right — go back to step one and get rid of those clothes!

    Make sure you do this for each piece of clothing — bottoms, tops, accessories, and shoes.

    Step 3 — Compromise

    Now, building a capsule wardrobe can be an unexpectedly emotional and difficult process. That’s why I think it’s important to compromise and give yourself a little wiggle room on your favourite part of fashion, meaning allow yourself to have a little more in this area. For me, that’s accessorizing.

    When i’m planning what to wear, accessories are often the favourite part of my outfit and can even be the main asset to show off (that’s why classic clothes are always good to help them stand out!)

    If you’re like me and accessories are your thing, think bold statement but neutral shades of additions that can easily be paired with your essential outfit. Sparkly jewels, chunky black boots and a sturdy tailored handbag (big enough to fit all of your daily necessities!) are just what you need to tick off all the essential items on your shopping list.

    Step 4 — Make Outfits

    Once you have your essentials, start pairing them with each other to make sure you can make a number of outfits with them that will keep you excited and happy. Did you know that with just 27 pieces you can make 100 outfits!? The possibilities are endless, so bring your creativity and imagination with you.

    Step 5 — Continue to Reassess

    Set a schedule that works for you when it comes to refining your capsule wardrobe and going through the above steps. This can be the well-known 3 month rule, or more or less often, depending on how you feel. Again, we don’t want to take the joy out of the fashion we love, so figure out what works for you. The number one rule is that you LOVE what you own and wear. The moment you don’t, it’s time for a change!

    I hope this blog post has given you some New Year inspiration to get yourselves a Capsule Wardrobe.

    Lingerie for your next ‘Netflix and Chill’ date

    It’s official. Winter is back.

    Now that I’ve forced my parents to drive all of my Autumn/Winter wardrobe up to London and trek back my – yes hundreds of – summer clothes, it means there are a lot more cosy nights in on the horizon for me and bae.

    I’m most definitely not a big Winter weather fan. As you can probably tell from my blog posts… I’m more of a Summer girl. However, get me on a rainy minus-whatever-degrees day and I will be VERY excited about having a cosy night in my jammies with my favourite mug of hot chocolate!

    So with some inspiration from Adore me’s new Fall collection, I’ve put together some date night outfits to impress that special someone for when you’re snuggling under the duvet on those icy evenings.

    Lingerie must-haves for Winter 2016

    Well, matching undies is obviously a necessity. I can’t be the only the one who thinks this? Wearing a matching bra and knickers instantly puts me in a good mood.

    I can guarantee wearing any pair of these Adore me underwear sets above will kick start your day with happiness – not only because they are gorgeous but because a set costs as little as £20.

    Pair with…

    My favourite way to compliment your undies on a night in is with a kimono gown or a comfy casual jumper plus pretty accessories too!

    Plus all of these are a must on my handy ‘Night In’ checklist
    Netflix and Chill checklist

    1. You’re favourite matching undies and slippers
    2. A cosy jumper, cardigan or dressing gown
    3. Something to snuggle under – maybe even a snuggie or one of those new mermaid blankets?!
    4. Hot chocolate with ALL the trimmings. I can NEVER say no to whipped cream and marshmallows… and a flake!
    5. Finally – my favourite. Naughty treats – obviously something chocolate-related!

    After my upcoming boozy camping weekend I can guarantee next Sunday will consist of me and bae watching Breaking Bad with our favourite chocy bars, peanut butter cup ice cream, chocolate popcorn and probably some Tim Tams too.

    Far too often, hangover Sundays exist in my weekend. Does anyone else have that awkward pause on Monday mornings when your boss asks what you got up to at the weekend? I mean… Should you tell them you got absolutely trollied on Saturday night and almost faked your own death to avoid work the next morning because the hangover was still so bad.
    No. You use your Netflix binge to your advantage explaining ‘how relaxing your CHILLED weekend was finishing the House of Cards TV series and learning more interesting facts about Brendan Dassey in Making a Murderer’.

    Just follow my steps above for the perfect cosy night in and you won’t even care if you haven’t been out of the house.

    Essential Summer Accessory: The Baseball Cap

    Baseball hats aren’t just for playing on the field, they’re a must-have for your Spring/Summer wardrobe and possibly one of the cutest and sportiest current trends. The fashionable staple item will bring your sports luxe look to life, keep you looking chic on those troublesome hair days and are the essential statement accessory to keep you dancing the weekend away this Festival season. I love this classic trend because it brings a masculine twist to any girlie outfit.

    I’ve owned baseball caps since I was tiny weenie, but I’ve never been brave enough to wear them away from the sports field, but now that they are bang-on trend and it’s cool to accesorise them with ANY outfit, I couldn’t be happier! =

    When I did Camp America in 2012 (best summer ever!) I lived in my Atlanta baseball cap and just looking through Fanatics hat collections, it brought back all of my amazing memories of teaching the kids the English version of baseball we play at home- Rounders. After browsing through all of the trendy designs, I found my fave from the Red Sox hats collection!black hat

    The New Era Boston Red Sox snapback stood out to me the most because of its tradtional black and white colour scheme which makes it a fab accessory to pair with absolutely anything in your wardrobe! It will be the perfect match to my grey and red Boston sweater- my essential every-night sofa jumper for the past 2 years!

    The Baseball cap is bang-on trend this season and has been mastered by some gorgeous faces in the public eye. Baseball caps aren’t only a male accessory anymore, they’re totally a hot item for women too and I’m totally crushin on Cara Delevingne and Rihanna’s statement looks- they rock the trend so effortlessly!

    So whoever said a baseball hat isn’t a women’s wardrobe staple… here are my favourite four looks to prove them wrong.

    The Sports Luxe trend is all about combining monochrome stripes with leather fabric to create the perfect statement look. Inspired by Vanessa Hudgens’ stylish take on the trend, I have put together my own look with the essential addition of this Boston Red Sox Baseball hat. Great for a cool statement weekend look or even to fashion-up a baseball game on the field.

    59FIFTY Fitted Hat in Black, Fanatics $34.95

    Black Tres Cool crop top, MayKool.com £11

    Finders Keepers faux-leather shorts, COLLECTIVEHABIT, £49

    Sporty stripe knee-high tube socks, NORDSTROM, £6.89

    Heading to the gym or going for a run this Summer? Sweat it out in style just like Stephanie Pratt with this sporty look. And just as she shows off, Baseball hats are the perfect pair to a ponytail hairstyle. Phew! Now you can save your hair from blowing all over your face on your windy jog AND keep your head from getting sunburned. Result!

    Gym Bunny

    59FIFTY Fitted Hat in Black, Fanatics $34.95

    Now that the festival season has officially kicked off, with Coachella showcasing some fab looks for the Summer, it’s time you get your weekend looks ready to pack into your rucksack. A Baseball cap can be as cute of an accessory as a headband or flower, being the essential statement accessory to your weekend this year.

    Baseball hats are a traditional all-round season item and can be worn with any off-duty outfit. Even on those hangover and ‘my hair just isn’t right’ days, a baseball cap will be your best friend. Khloe Kardashian, Rihanna and Cara Delevingne are three trendsetters who have mastered the baseball cap on casual days, pairing with denim fabrics, leather and stilettos.

    Whatever look you’re going for, you can always count on a trendy baseball cap to top off any outfit! My favorite way to style my baseball caps are to wear them with a classic simple tee, high waisted denim shorts, chunky wedges and a floral statement necklace.The denim, sandals, and necklace come together as a casual feminine look, with the baseball cap and slouched tee making the outfit look effortless.

    I also love to wear mine on holiday when i’m chilling at the pool or taking a wander down the beach. Not only are these hats super stylish and your best friend on troublesome hair days, they can work as a fab sun protector too. Pair with your fave bikini and sling-on a kimono for your ‘I’m in paradise’ look.

    Festival Fashion Fever

    Coachella-2015-1360x680 (1)

    Coachella has officially kicked off the summer festival season… I wouldn’t have known… It’s not like my instagram feed has been totally bombarded with amazing pictures from the star-studded event or anything!! But i’m not gonna lie I have been glued to my phone these recent weeks stalking the Fashion Glitterati who have dug out their kimonos and denim hot pants.

    The photos and the gossip has just made me so envious of everyone at the festival and SO excited for the upcoming festivals this year. For the past three years i’ve been a loyal Bestival goer and will definitely be there again next year, but this summer I’ve got tickets for V Festival and WOMAD and I am buzzing.

    #FridayFavourites: Tactile textures

    Whenever I’m shopping I can’t help but touch and stroke bags and fabrics that look like they have a unique texture and for this Spring/Summer season shops are full of them.

    Tactile textures like leather, creamy suede, tassels and fringing have the ability transform your look from biker gal, to hippy chick right through to rocking up at a Great Gatsby party! They are a great asset to any fashionista’s wardrobe.

    Tassles V Fringing

    Fringe has always been one of the most steady and never changing fashion trends of almost any season, always coming up with some new interpretations and design combinations- some made with interesting textures like suede or leather on shoes tops and bags! Fringe detailing is even more powerful this season- bringing a boho/wild west style to any outfit.

    tasslesfringing

    Apart from the season’s hottest trend of using fringe details, flirty and playful tassels also add fab detailing to spice up and glam up even the simplest pieces. So if it’s not fringe, then it’s tassels, and you are going to see a lot of creative interpretations of the tassel trend this Spring- as you have on the Spring/Summer 2015 catwalks!

    Leather

    Leather is amazing- It can be worn as just a small accent to make any off-duty minimalist outfits look spectacular, or be the centerpiece fabric to create a statement-outfit.

    leather buys

    The tactile fabric has been spotted in the major fashion capitals during the recent fashion weeks too- so get some of it in your wardrobe for this Spring/Summer 2015! The classy trend- sold both in the traditional shades and bright hues for attracting extra attention- is a must-have for the fans of the luxury and the classy style.

    My favourite faux leather picks are:

    Leather pocket A Line skirt- Warehouse £65

    Playful square neck shift dress- Missguided £25

    Sagittarius platform shoes- Topshop £58

    Compete with Kim and Rita with your own take on pink latex with this PU salmon mini dress from Missguided at £35. Who wears the look best now?

    kim-kardashian-rita-ora

    Forever Unique Nell faux trousers in red- Van Mildert £35

    Mint velvet bluebell faux biker jacket- House of Frazer £129

    Rose gold metallic leather skirt- River Island £12

    Go for a bold statement outfit by mixing the leather and tassel trends together. I love this faux leather tassel waterfall jacket from Missguided at £40. Such a bargain!

    Suede

    Pieces with suede textures are by far one of the trendiest and catchiest looks this season. Whether the tactile fabric is on outerwear like biker jackets and tailored coats, or basic garments like mini skirts and shoes, it creates a chic statement look.

    In the shops there are lots of subtle suede garments in brown shades and creamy pastel colours- perfect for this time of year, while bright red and orange tones are also on offer to create bold statement looks.

    Get some suede in your wardrobe with some inspiration from my favourite finds:

    suede

    Orange shift dress- Topshop £60

    70s’ patchwork zip mini skirt- ASOS £45

    Pastel pink shearling coat- Missguided £20

    Casalnuoyo ankle boots- Aldo £88

    Mint suede heels- Piperlime £200

    Tassel clutch- Topshop £40

    On my daily commutes to work and whenever i’ve been out shopping I’ve seen so many amazing tasseled bags and been dying to know where they’re from. I think a tasseled bag is definitely an essential for your wardrobe especially as you can rock the style every season!

    Here are my top 5 picks to add to your handbag collection for any season and event:
