Get Autumn ready with the legging trend

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.

Pregnant and Stylish? Why not!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

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.

Trend or not: this is the all-time favourite summer top

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?

Guest to a Wedding? Dress to impress on a budget!!!

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.

A fresh take on these comfy trousers

IMG_2268

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?

Beating the Spring freeze

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 😦

The Big Ruffle is getting bigger

img_0332

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.

How to toughen up the floral trend

img_0380

Would you agree with me that florals are always around especially during spring and summer when the shops are filled with colours, prints, flowery designs and sheer textiles? It seems that this season will be no exception as major brands showed their obsession from autumn 2016 when they launched a few pieces. Remember all those ZARA embroidered shirts? They were all covered in flowers but all we were obsessed with was the embroidery. H&M also launched some floral dresses but were sold out in a few days; and were too dark for my liking.

But how does one wear a floral dress/blouse/trousers without feeling too sweet, too girly or too pretty?

February is the month for restyling

February is the last month of winter and it brings us 28 days closer to spring! By this time we have bought most of those trendy autumn-winter items that we had in our wishlists, the sales have come and gone and hopefully we managed to grab hold of the bargains we were looking for, and we are ready to rock and welcome spring in the most stylish outfits.

A more feminine tomboy look!

Remember the days when hoodies and bomber jackets were only worn by teenage boys, skate park maniacs or women going to the gym? Well forget about those days!
