Daring Pink

"Pure, intense emotions. It's not about design. It's about feelings."
- Alber Elbaz

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that every Sunday I feature my five favourite outfits of the week on my Insta Stories; from fashion-forward bloggers to savvy fashion designers and more. A few weeks ago I featured Angela B (@luvangelamarie... check her out!) in what I can only describe as the perfect outfit... blue jeans, a sheer black dress and a pin-stripped double breasted blazer. The finishing touches were cool sunglasses and black perspex heeled mules. I was so in love with the outfit (as I am with many of her outfits) I was inspired to create a look of my own. 

Sometimes, just sometimes... you have to mix the old with the new to create amazing outfits, and that's exactly what I done with this outfit. Hey, come on, who has money to always have completely new outfits? ha, not me (I wish).  Actually, to be honest, there are many things that I've had for years, that I just love to keep featuring, because they're timeless classics. Like these sassy heels.

I've been wanting to feature these amazing heels from Office Shoes (that I bought quite a few years ago) on the blog for some time now, and finally I found the perfect outfit to pair it with (thanks to Angela inspiring me). I teamed up the heels with a bright pink cropped jacket from Mango, a lace dress from Shein and some tailored trousers from Zara. I finished off the look with chic sunglasses, bold gold jewellery and a black and gold cross-body bag.

Black Pearl

"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak."
- Rachel Zoe

Now I know you're probably thinking 'she recently done a outfit post centred around pearls' but hey, I just can't help myself. The love for this trend has turned into somewhat of an obsession. No joke... in the last two months or so I've found myself  buying all things pearl embellished, so don't be surprised to see a few more outfits posts on the blog featuring the pretty little details, in the next few weeks. 

With this outfit I decided to ditch the camel and nude colours I featured previously and went for my favourite colour combination; monochrome. I teamed up this letter print t-shirt from Shein with a white layered tulle skirt from Fashion Union at ASOS (available in white and black here). As the weather has taken a little dip, I added a black Mac jacket from Boohoo (which I'm sorry is sold out), with my old staple perspex heels from H&M and the main feature, the pretty cross body pearl embellished bag from Zara. I finished off the look with cat-eyed sunglasses and Mac Cosmetics red lipstick. 

Now, based on my Instagram comments I can see that people are really loving my bag and t-shirt, and you'll be happy to read the both are still available to buy. I know sometimes I feature some old pieces which are no longer available (hey... if I was rich, for every outfit post, everything would be brand new), which can be annoying, but at least these two hits you can get your hands on... well whilst stocks last. To get your hands on them click on the images below, which will take you to the retailers website. Happy shopping!

Perfect Pink

"We must never confuse elegance with snobbery"
- Yves Saint Laurent

If there's one colour you are bound to see a lot of on my blog over the next few months... it is pink. From hot pink to baby pink, I've acquired a wardrobe full of the pretty hue. Believe my when I say, pink is not just for the warmer months of the year, it works perfectly well all year round... yes, for the cooler months too; and that's what I intend to show you with my upcoming looks. 

With this look, after spotting this pretty little top on ASOS, I decided to pair it with one of my staple skirts, this pretty pink pencil skirt that I bought from Zara a few years ago. I finished off the look with perspex sandals from Public Desire and this statement snake skinned cross-body bag from Mango. The look was perfected with a pink lipstick and a flirty smile.

Pearl Princess

"Always dress like you're going to see your worst enemy."
- Kimora Lee

If there's one trend that I am a fan of at the moment, it has to be the Perl trend. From embellished tops, to fancy pearl chains... I just can't get enough. My love for the trend led me to buy this pearl embellished mini skirt from Zara and this pearl and stud handbag from River Island. I decided to team up the pair with a camel coloured bodysuit (which I wore backwards) from Pretty Little Thing (sold out, alternative here), with nude heels from Matalan (old) and a black Mac duster from (sold out). I finished the look with cat-eyed sunglasses from Topshop.

Sheer Black

"Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally."
- Christian Louboutin

I know I always go on and on about how much I love wearing monochrome, but there is one thing I love more... and that is wearing all black. Yes, head to toe and if possible, even on my lips and nails. It's true what they say, women who wear black lead colourful lives. 

With this outfit I decided to keep everything muted in black, well excluding my clutch. I played on the details of my new Shein heeled mule sandals, teaming it with this chic bomber jacket from Zara. I added this beautiful skirt from Forever 21 and a cold shoulder sheer blouse also from Forever 21. I finished off the look with a large gold clutch bag from Missguided (old), and a gold statement cuff.
