In The Navy – The Look

@ry_1shot

Hey lovelies,

It’s been a long time coming! I haven’t released a fashion based post in a while, but that’s not to say that I don’t love dressing up, looking fly and hitting the streets.

I have a massive confession to make, I don’t always ‘dress up’. In fact, there are more times where I dress down and rock the very casual look and make my way. On this note, I thought I should reflect that in today’s outfit. You can dress up and hit the road but still look and feel fabulous.

I can’t continue without saying Happy Easter Sunday. As a Christian I fully understand the importance of this time. In fact, this celebration holds a weightier value than any other, including Christmas. No, it’s not because of the bunnies and the chocolate eggs as that doesn’t actually have anything to do with the true meaning of the Passover, or otherwise known as Easter. Check out my blog on Easter.

I have to say that I absolutely love where I took this photo and the photographer @ry_1shot is a true professional. He managed to capture my outfit with a beautiful blue like scenery to compliment my theme.

I call this ‘In The Navy’. Why you ask? Well, I’m definitely all blue-ed out if you know what I mean. I’m wearing a navy coloured polyester top and a navy coloured and navy looking tailored jacket.

@ry_1shot

I came across the top and grabbed it as the texture and material is very unique. It is an everyday top that is not ‘everyday’. I say this as it’s rare that I come across a top that looks and feels like this one does.

The burgundy trousers are so smart but can also be worn in a more casual and subtle way. Girls, burgundy and navy colours match so perfectly that I feel every lady should have these colours in their wardrobe.

So there you have it ladies – my ‘In The Navy’ fashion look.

What’s your navy look?

Elegantly Sophisticated – The Fashion Look

Hi girlies,

I am definitely that person who doesn’t necessarily follow fashion trends and always tries to wear things that are a little bit different and that stand out if possible. I generally try to choose comfort over everything at all times, because who said you can’t be comfortable and look fabulous at the same time?

I’m a massive Asos lover (I’m sure I’ve done a massive favour by showcasing so many of Asos’ clothing on this blog), but hey, a girl has got to stay true to herself, so here I am.

I attended my brother’s graduation ceremony and had to find something to wear. I came across this jumpsuit and couldn’t turn away from it even though it’s freezing cold and I would usually wear this kind of outfit in the evening. Well, as long as I threw on my fur coat over it, I was good to go – oh and warm at the same time.

I found this amazing navy blue satin one shoulder jumpsuit with a roll neck detail and a wide leg. I personally haven’t seen anyone wearing anything like this before so I had to buy it. I was a little hesitant on whether it would suit me or not but as soon as I wore it, I fell in love with it.

Although it is satin, it doesn’t appear to crease much and it is loosely fitted but at the same time doesn’t take away from my figure.

 

The best part is that it is a one shouldered jumpsuit with a roll neck detail. The arm is split and has a tie handle so that you can tie it around your wrist as you wish. I would suggest creating a bow detail as I think it just looks neater and more elegant.

I find that the roll neck detail is so lush! It definitely helps to make the look what it is because if you ask me, I would say that this jumpsuit is definitely for the more elegant and sophisticated woman. You don’t need to wear a plane jane square neck and sleeveless dress to be sophisticated, although I also like those.

The wide leg definitely finishes the look. It is ever so long, even for me as I’m 5 foot 7 and it was dragging across the floor. Most heels would go with this outfit but I would definitely say high heels would be the best option just because of how long the leg is. I would say a slim heel would look best rather than a chunky heel. If you’re daring you can wear baby pink heels or even bright yellow, but if you like to keep things simple, a classic black will do.

I hope I could offer some fashion inspiration in today’s post and if you do end up buying this jumpsuit i’d love to see how it looks on you!

New Year’s Eve Colour Block Pop

Hi girls,

It was New Year’s Eve and like every New Year’s Eve we have to celebrate it in style, dress our best, put on our favourite shoes and swirl into the night to the beat of our drum in celebration of a brand new year. 

Well, that’s exactly what I did and like every New Year’s Eve I celebrated it in a special church service at my local church. You know how us girls like to say that we never have anything to wear, well I really put this to the test as I swung open my wardrobe and rummaged through the items of clothing that lay before me. 

I brought the colour block trend back to my block with a white and black jumpsuit ensemble (I promise my next outfit won’t be a jumpsuit) and paired it with a baby pink and cream clutch bag and kitten heeled pumps. 

The baby pink and cream clutch bag is so lush – it’s spacious and elegant and can be worn with almost anything!
To add a bit of flavour, a caped jacket always has me swinging on by to my next destination.
So there you have it, my New Year’s Eve Colour Block Pop – The Look

Winter Glam Fur-Fabulous

Hey lovelies,

I absolutely love fur coats and ‘glam’ such as glittery and sparkly pieces of clothing and jewellery, although I don’t tend to wear jewellery often. If you’re one of those lovely ladies who have to endure the autumn and winter season like I do, then you’ll know exactly what I mean when I say, “it’s absolutely freezing, cold toes, frost bites, stiffness and just plain cold”! My favourite season like many people is Summer, but since Summer is long gone and Winter is fast approaching I thought I should share my Winter Glam – Fur-Fabulous look with you guys. 

Just for comfort and for style, I wore this sleeveless cream and black laced jumpsuit and added some sparkle to it by pairing it with a sequin under garment. This definitely helps give the jumpsuit a more glam look. 

I really like these boots as you can dress them up or dress them down depending on the occasion. The heel is about 4 inches long and the gold buckle and suede strip it has on the sides gives them a unique look. I always like to stand out where I can when it comes to fashion because I don’t really want people to look at me and be like oh I know exactly where you bought this and the time and the place and when the following year becomes the present year I would still like to be able to wear what I want without seeming dated. So back to the boots, when the weather is frosty and you’re going somewhere nice like on a nice date or a party, you can exchange heels for comfy and weather kind boots. 

I love fur coats! Love, love, love! You can wear anything (obviously within reason, 😀), but as soon as you put a fur coat on, all of a sudden you look glam and completely dressed up. I am someone who gets cold quite easily so it really helps that I have a beautiful and big faux fur coat to keep me warm when I’m out. This faux fur coat is mid length and is a nice jet black colour. It also comes with a belt which certainly compliments the coat and cinches your waist slightly when you put the belt on so it gets rid of that ‘frumpy’ look. 

The gold jewellery is so lush, so simple but yet so beautiful and lightweight. It’s gold plated and I have to say it really does this outfit justice. A dash of classy and simple gold earrings and you’re good to go. 

So there you have it, my Winter Glam – Fur-Fababulous look.

Let me know what you think guys.

The Superhero Caped Jumpsuit

Ladies, ladies, ladies, for those who know me, I love unique things, I’m not one to go with the flow and buy and wear what everyone else is. I came across this Jumpsuit and fell in love with it instantly. I was like woah, a jumpsuit with a cape? Now that’s different.

I have previously published a fashion post about caped jumpsuits called Batman vs Superman The Caped Jumpsuit Trend but when I wore this particular jumpsuit out on a couple of occasion, I literally had stares and people asking me where I bought it from. From strangers, to friends to family members – everyone seemed to really dig this outfit, so girlies I thought I’d share it with you in the hopes that you may like it too and get some inspiration.

OK so this exact jumpsuit is officially sold out, but don’t panic as you can buy a similar jumpsuit.
