HELLO! It’s been a while since I’ve posted but I haven’t forgotten my lovely blog. I thought I’d give you all a little style update from 2022 so far. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I post my #ootds regularly. I’ve been obsessed with clothes since I was a little girl and fashion is something I’ll always appreciate, no matter how old I get.
For me, it’s not just about nice clothes. It’s about self-expression. Your style shows your identity and communicates what type of person you are without saying a word. How amazing when you look at it that way! Fashion can transform your mood; make you feel good, give you confidence and inspire others. It’s almost therapeutic, I could talk about it forever!
Right now, I love colour, prints and quirkiness. I totally believe fashion should be fun. Our time on earth is short so why not wear clothes that make you smile? Here’s some picks that have made me happy and boosted my mood over the past few months.
I adore this dress – the clashing prints, the high neck and the colours are all gorgeous. I wore it for Sam’s birthday in January and it was perfect for dinner in St Brides Hotel following a spa afternoon. I feel great in bold dresses because they do all the talking. I don’t need to spend ages on my hair, make-up or tan to make an impact!
How fabulous is this blouse?! It can be dressed up for going out, dressed down with jeans, shorts for a festival, worn open as a jacket and paired with trousers, skirts and over dresses. And I live in hats so the beret was a must, it was nice to ditch the beanies after not taking them off all winter.
There’s something about pink and red together, such a punchy combination! This slinky little number was perfect for a Valentines dinner date with Sam. I’m always drawn to a dresses with sleeves, I feel like they’re the most elegant option and help focus on the dress itself rather than skin.
Printed trousers are everywhere at the moment but I’ve been loving them for years. They’re so easy to chuck on and make a style statement without even trying. Pick a multi-coloured pair and the options on top are endless. I went for a simple white tee and a cute cobalt blue cardi.
Not forgetting those neutrals! This was a simple look but it felt effortless, chic and ideal for an afternoon of shopping and lunching. Khaki and beige are a dream team and if you don’t have a white blouse in your wardrobe, snap one up and I promise you’ll reach for it a lot.
Ooh another pair of funky trousers! Nothing new there. These were simply made for groovy gold platforms, something I thought I’d never wear again! But I’d clearly forgotten how tall they make me and how easy they are to walk in. My hair was desperate for a cut here but it was nice to leave it au natural.
Ooh, another pink and red dress for date night. I thought I’d wouldn’t like the dress on but it was so comfortable that I couldn’t resist taking it out for an evening of pizza and pasta. The puff sleeves were super cute too. I had a good couple of inches off my hair as well, which as much-needed. A weight off my shoulders. Literally.
What outfit is your favourite? I’ll be posting more soon!
