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.

I really want a camel coat this winter but no point in getting it just yet!

Getting back into my skinny’s, and I think a new pair of J Brands is definitely on the cards 😉

A gorgeous chunky jumper without looking like a beached whale.

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

A gorgeous pair of heels without teetering about looking incredibly uncomfortable and completely top heavy…

This is the easiest outfit ever! Throw it on, pair with heels and clutch or flats for a more relaxed look and voila. Ultra chic!

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)

Work Wear Motivation

It’s time for another work wardrobe boost. The weather is really hotting up here in London (most days), I know its scorching in NY and around Europe. For my friends in SA and Oz, if you are feeling a little chilly, put these in the bank for a sunnier day!

Cool easy to wear outfits that look smart and feel light and easy are a breeze to be in. It’s so refreshing to throw something on and look amazingly chic, but the process has been completely effortless.  That’s what I want to help you with here. Three simple but gorgeous work outfits that will take you into the evening. We know how crazy the social life is after hours during the London summer.

Self Portrait Obsession (but not mine..)

I have taken a little liking to a brand called Self Portrait. They don’t have a website and are based in Hoxton but they do sell on ASOS 🙂

Wardrobe Top-Ups

There are certain items that are necessities for the closet all year round and then others that come and go as the season’s and trends change.  This summer (or just for the start of summer, lets be honest we aren’t only going to buy 3 things the entire season!) But I have picked 3 pieces that you wont regret purchasing. These items will come in handy more than once, trust me.

These block mid heel sandals are the perfect shoes to wear to that Out-door wedding, the Polo or the Races.  Not only will they save your feet from aches and pains due to the middy height but the block heel will save you from sinking into the grass and potential embarrassing falls.  The very neutral and bang on trend sandals will go with just about everything. They will also be great with jeans and are the perfect heel for shorts.

The Boucle Blazer, a smart/casual fabric, a smart fit and an extremely flattering cut is the perfect jacket to throw on this summer. Whether you are off to a formal event, wear it over a dress or it will look super chic over a little strappy vest and jeans to add that extra layer on a slightly cooler evening.

Metallics and sequins are an absolute must for evenings during the summer months. Hopefully you wont have to cover the sparkle up with a jacket and it’s the easier way to jazz up your jeans for an evening out. You will look oh so radiant with a bit of a tan and I just love the way light catches these fabrics in romantic candle lit lighting.  If you are looking for a show stopping red carpet moment this gorgeous metallic vest looks even more phenomenal worn together with its matching skirt for a more formal event. You will dazzle and certainly be the belle of the ball in this outfit!

Sexy Summer Flats

If you’ve got great clothes but don’t have the shoes to match, there’s really no point. Shoes can ruin a look completely. I’m generally more comfortable i flats, especially in summer (surprising for me as I haven’t been blessed in the height department).  Here are some of my chosen shoes for summer that will take your feet from same old to saucy. There are some unexpected styles creeping back in, do not mock the Birkenstock as they have come back a lot cooler and chicer than they were in their past. I will certainly be investing in a pair this summer! Pick your pair for chill-in, cruise-in or shmooz-in for under £150!

Remember to treat those feet to a little pedi once in a while and you will have no problem slipping them into any pair of sexy summer sandals.
