Even though I wasnt a big fan of red I’ve come to love it recently. I think if its paired with the right colours it is one of the chicest and most elegant colours to add to an outfit.
If you were a fan of the comfy track pants that were a hit last year then rejoice, because the even comfier leggings are back. They have ruled 2017 as we saw a number of trend setters (bloggers, models, actresses) stepping out in them, pairing them with sneakers, branded clutch bags, over-sized logo tees, bomber jackets, ankle boots and just about anything.
Finally, I can officially share the news with you guys.
A few months ago I was informed that I was selected to be a Brand Ambassador for Libby May London, but for a number reasons I couldn’t share a lot about it apart from the discount code (BLOG15) that will give you a 15% off on all Libby May products on http://www.heidico.com !!! Libby May is one of three jewellery labels that make up the Heidi & Co brand, together with Smeidi London and Evy B London.
Pregnancy is filled with so many challenging things. There’s the morning sickness, the drowsiness, the heartburn…oh the list is endless; so looking good and stylish is the last thing that a mum-to-be might be thinking about. But I found that waking up every morning and making an effort into putting together an outfit that didn’t consist of leggings and a hoodie, together with the minimal amount of makeup I use, made me feel great.
Last year, when we it became a ‘trend’ we saw it being featured in its original horizontal drop just off the shoulders. But this year there are so many names and versions to the off-shoulder or bardot (named after Brigitte Bardot) top which I find it to be a sexier name! I love how its transformed from a simple off shoulder top to a more dramatic one that includes ruffles, puffed-up / bell sleeves or its even become a wrap-around shirt (making boring shirts look sexy). But is the off-shoulder-top really a trend? Is it really something that will be forgotten next year?
It seems that whenever I meet up with the girls lately the conversation that takes over is ‘where can I get a dress for that wedding I am invited to without spending a fortune?’. Thank god I don’t have to worry about what to wear to a wedding as I’m not invited to any this year (yet!); which I feel so relieved about because it would have been a bit difficult with this growing bump on its way.
Everyone seems to be talking about so many trends this season. If you go online, on fashion blogs or social media all you see being featured are embroidered tops and bottoms, the gingham trend, off-shoulder tops, ruffles and all sorts of jeans (be it skinny, mom, high-waist, boyfriend, you name it) with embroidery, ruffles, raw ends and the story goes on and on. But I haven’t seen anywhere the very comfortable and easy to wear Tapered trousers. Is it because they are not so flattering to wear and a bit tricky to style?
Today I woke up feeling determined to wear a more spring looking outfit. I even tried to wear the new pair of slippers I bought. But saw the weather and thought that I’d be mad if I wear lighter clothes and slippers. So I came up with what I’m wearing here; as you can see there are no spring vibes 😦
Following my recent post about the ruffle and frill trend I did some research and started making my wishlist for spring (and probably summer, since the UK doesnt get a proper summer).
This will be my last winter-looking post but it will certainly not be the last of the frills and ruffles. The trend sneaked into our fashion lives about a year ago, at least that’s when I bought my first ruffled ZARA top. But as I was buying it I never realised how big the trend would get. Last night’s Burberry fashion show, held as part of London fashion Week, confirmed that frills will continue to be a trend in Spring and I’m just hoping that it will be so big that I will be able to wear all my new ruffled knitwear, like the one in this post, in Autumn/Winter 2017.
