February 14 is fast approaching which means if you’re not being spoiled by a love one (which is great) it is still just as a good enough excuse to eat heart-shaped chocolate while watching your favourite rom-coms or cheers-ing the gal squad with plenty of cocktails and wine.

No matter what you’re plans are this Tuesday it’s time to pamper yourself and bring out your most girliest of outfit choices to get you in the mood for romance.

    #FridayFavourites || The bomber jacket

    I am absolutely loving the bomber jacket trend for this Autumn/Winter season. There’s something a little bit Grease Lightning about this look that will give your outfit a real retro feel! But if you don’t feel like going the full monty in a Pink Ladies get-up, opt for a classic khaki or navy shade- the perfect colour to style any off-duty winter look.

    Bomber jackets are an essential for these cold casual days- multi-tasking to shelter your body from the rain whilst keeping you cosy and warm. I love Topshop’s range of the faux fur addition to bombers- keeping you super snug inside its fluffy lining.

    Cannes Red Carpet Style Crush

    How amazing have all the celebrities been looking on the red carpet for the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival this year?! I sooo wish I was lucky enough to be in their glamorous shoes.

    The major event has showcased some of the most gorgeous red carpet looks I’ve seen, who even knew such shimmering statement gowns existed? From feathered trains and sequined bodices to rocking the gladiator chic look, France saw stars flaunt these trends flawlessly.

    The opening night of Cannes 2015 was a glamorous parade of gorgeous gowns, sparkling diamonds and flawless makeup.

    Here are some of my favourite looks:

    Inspired by the celebs’ looks, here’s how you can copy their red carpet look without forking out the triple figure price tag:

    red carpet dresses

    Sienna Miller totally rocked the classic one shoulder maxi on the red carpet, and you too can look just as sophisticated with this AX Paris Navy dress at £35.

    Plunge necklines are fab for bringing a sexy touch to an elegant outfit. And didn’t Miranda Kerr pull it off to perfection in her gorgeous girlie ensemble! Showing off her supermodel bod, in a flowing pink dress, the revealing neckline and thigh slit created the perfect red carpet statement look. Copy the feminine look and look like a goddess with this ASOS Plunge Neck Maxi at £32

    Emma Stone looked so cute in the dainty Oscar de la Renta number, decorated with the stunning sheer lace fabric. You too can look just as feminine yet edgy in this flouncy Scalloped Lace Prom dress at Nelly.com for £27.95

    Natalie Portman looked SO elegant in her sweetheart bodice red dress! However the post-boox red gown was almost blending in with the carpet. I have found a gorgeous replica in black, this Sweetheart Sheer Fishtail Maxi Dress for £48 in Topshop

    Lots of never-ending pins were on display at the prestigious festival, with Miranda Kerr and Karlie Kloss donning the thigh split look. But Karlie Kloss really made a statement wearing a cross between and jumpsuit and dress- and didn’t she look amazing! Her asymetric look took her from supermodel to Gladiator Chic. Copy the trend and stay classic in white with this stunning PU cut out dress by Miss Selfridge at just £25. It might not be floor-length but what a bargain!

    The famous faces definitely proved the saying was true: ‘Diamonds are a girls best friend’ with sparkles and shimmer all over their accessories. I totally agree, you can never have to much sparkle and in the form of diamonds? Always more more more!

    To accessorise your take on the red carpet look- pair your dress with metallic gem strappy heels (£36.46 at whitehouseblackmarket.com), a classic diamond bracelet (£42.99 at jewelstreet.com) and a statement sparkly clutch (£29.68 at etsy.com).

    So if you’ve got any formal events coming up, I hope I have given you some inspiration for finding your perfect celeb-inspired look without having to break the budget!

    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.

    Black Tres Cool crop top, MayKool.com £11

    Finders Keepers faux-leather shorts, COLLECTIVEHABIT, £49

    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!

    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.
