On the first of April, I took on a challenge and created, photographed and blogged about the first of ten outfits. Over the ten days, with the same shirt-dress being included in each outfit, I accessorised with pieces from my own product line.
Reflecting on how to style one item with a limited choice or capsule wardrobe and unlimited accessories definitely led to more than a few revelations.
There were ten outfits, but I chose to wear multiple necklaces and so there are more than Continue reading
Yellow is, at the best of times, a tough colour to wear without it wearing you instead. I, personally, love yellow in and of itself, but definitely draw the line when it comes to covering my whole body in the brashness of it. Here’s where accessories come in handy, as you can see above – I added a bright yellow bead necklace to a simple black and white dress. It draws attention to your face and makes an ordinary outfit extraordinary. Choosing the right shade isn’t as important when it’s such a small quantity – you can get away with a little mismatch. With a top or a dress it could be a disaster to have the wrong tone for your skin.
This month, I’m taking on a challenge… it’s a combination of two separate challenges, to be honest. And I’m so excited about sharing it with you!
The first part of the challenge is inspired by the 10 x 10 Challenge™, created by Lee of StyleBee … and involves choosing a micro-wardrobe comprising 10 items of clothing and wearing them in different combinations over 10 days. 10 x 10, get it?
My second inspiration is Megan Auman and her One Dress Thirty Ways – she styled the same wrap dress 30 different ways in January of 2018, and she is reprising it with a different dress in April 2018.
So, wanting to do both these and not having that much time to devote to it, I will be styling Continue reading
The mustard trend – love it or hate it? Personally, I love yellow in any shape or form, and am delighted to see that it’s back in fashion, particularly for Spring 2018, worn both on and off the runway by celebrities and common folk alike. Here in London, though, it’s cold, windy and still very much winter. The daffodils are out already, though, so don’t hesitate to add some mustard to Continue reading
On days when I don’t know what to wear, I automatically reach for a jumper dress. This burgundy jumper dress from .Object with the fun frills on the cuffs is my current favourite. I’ve paired it with comfy but stylish wedge heel knee boots from M&S.
What makes the outfit stand out, however, is the way the Sunset Waters silk scarf can be styled with it in several different ways. This would be a great combination to wear to a winter wedding (or dare I say it so soon – a Valentine’s day date) yet it’s also appropriate to wear to work.
Camel has been a popular colour over the last few years, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. A camel or tan coat, boots and bag will go with anything and everything, in every season. When in doubt, accessorise with Continue reading
