Off the Shoulder Sexiness

If there is ANYTHING you should be buying right now, it is the Off The Shoulder top! Seriously! The shoulders on a woman are firstly, the most desirable part of the body. No matter what age you are your shoulders are (or should be) in dam good nick! You show off just the right amount of flesh, its pretty, it’s sexy, it’s great for getting a tan without straps.  There are so many reasons why this style works for everyone!  Here are a few I am desiring!  Make sure you pack one of these in your summer suitcase! Otherwise darling, you will be so sorry.

Why yes, they are all white, but you know me, summer is white, white is simplicity, simplicity is beauty and all that jazz. Happy shoulders, happy lady!

Spring Transitions

Casual Comforts is how Im feeling right now.  The temps should be warming up later in the week, and gradually more so as April inconspicuously springs it’s pretty self upon us, but as we transition across to Spring it’s difficult to start breaking out into skirts without tights, short sleeves and god forbid we need to get those winter feet out into sandals! This outfit will keep you at the perfect temp, has the right amount of ventilation without showing any skin but still looking stylish and slightly sexy in a comfortable manner, no?! I love the flattering jeans with the wide weaved knit which has a lowish V-back. You will be hitting the ground running in the style steaks with these open sided shoes which are bang on trend, again feeling less wintery but without really putting the white feet on show completely! Grab your hand held clutch and a chunky ring and you’re looking ever so covetable.  Remember feeling comfortable is the key to looking confident and good.  It’s my pleasure!

Does your watch define your style (the men’s edit)

I think subconsciously the watch a man choose’s to wear defines his style, not just the design but the brand too. A leather strap Omega is classic and subtle, a gold Rolex or Cartier watch is more formal and flashy which probably means if the man isn’t dressed in a suit most of the time he’s sporting a smart casual vibe on the weekend. The sporty Casio Rubber Chronograph style most probably means he spends most of his life in outdoor gear.  Or a Nixon or Marc Jacobs depicts a fashion forward trendsetter. I have picked three watches from the premier auction site, Invaluable and styled an outfit around each watch to show you just what I am talking about. Slide2

Faux Fur

Faux Fur is a key trend for Autum/Winter ’14. Choosing the right jacket or coat that doesn’t looks too shaggy or cheap is a difficult task, there are so many to choose from and I do believe that in this case paying slightly more for better quality is essential. These gilets and coats are perfect for layering over dresses and tops.  Some of my picks below.

Gilet by Velvet

The Gilet is perfect for in-between weather or for wearing in-doors and keeps your outfit looking chic! Layer up underneath, wear a longer layer hanging out the bottom, skinny trousers or a leather pencil skirt and finish off your outfit with a felt fedora for extra style creds 😉

Currently coveting…and can’t wait to get back into

I cannot wait to get back into normal clothes again. I am so tired of wearing comfy pants and baggy tops and flat shoes and not buying anything because it’s a total waste! All I can do now is dream about what I want to wear when I hopefully get back to my old size (it could be a while still)

A beautiful skirt into the waist! I love this pleated leather skirt worn with a sexy pair of heels is a seriously covetable look this winter.

Boyfriend jeans always look better with a top tucked in slightly or something a little shorter, not very flattering with a preggie belly! Love the relaxed look.

For me a simple silk shirt and jeans was always a go to outfit that always looks smart without much effort, wearing these blouses again without looking like Im smuggling pillows would be great

But in the mean time I will have to stick to my black leggings, oversized shapeless tops, and slip on sneakers (which I do love I should add) I posted them a few weeks ag0 and after much interest on where I got them, they are Carvela (see below)
