White On White For Diner en Blanc

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

What began as a little Parisian tradition, has travelled throughout the world, encompassing an all white dress code, an elite guest list and a secretive location for a stylish rendezvous. Of course, I’m talking about non other, than the prestigious Diner en Blanc.

I’m starting my outfit prep for the white on white dress code, favouring clean lines and longer hemlines. Trading a frock for a two piece, I cannot go past this sophisticated skirt and blouse from Seed Heritage. Teaming with a touch of gold seen in my accessories, I’m ready to sparkle and shine throughout the fancy evening.
What’s on your all white edit? As a first time attendee to Diner en Blanc, I would absolutely love your stylish tips so please leave me note in the comment below!

How To Style A Maxi Dress

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

alt="How To Dress Up A Maxi Dress"










Popcherry Forest For Last Maxi Dress, Wittner Otto Heels, Basque Wide Brim Hat, MICHAEL Michael Kors Medium Jet Set Cross Body Bag.

It’s no secret that I love a styling challenge, especially when it involves transforming a cheaper basic into a stylish must-have. This Popcherry maxi is a classic example, with a romantic floral pattern and a lot of fabric to play with, this piece has some serious styling versatility.

My first stylish tip is to add a thick, statement belt to cinch the waist. Not only does this create a more flattering shape, but it also allows you to experiment with the shape of the dress. As there is a lot of fabric to play with, I recommend pairing this piece with a pair of heels. I’ve chosen a little ombre block heel by Wittner, to keep this look chic and yet still casual for a weekend stoll with the beau.

Of course the real game changer in this ensemble, is the stylish addition of a sophisticated, wide brimmed hat, guaranteed to elevate your outfit from basic, to luxe statement. Teaming this Basque summer necessity with my ensemble, creates a more mature edge, not to mention it’s sun smart, which is highly important for those outdoor summer romps and romances.

Spring Beauty Haul: 5 Things To Add To Your Kit

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Brushes, lip stains and bronzers – oh my! Here are the five beauty goodies you should be treating yourself to this spring.

alt="Spring Beauty"

Beginning Boutique Flawless 6 Piece Brush Set, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Carina, Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion Lip Stain in Peony, Sephora Collection Fingertip EyelinerNapoleon Perdis Mosaic Powder Collection.

New Makeup Brushes. Take your application to the next level by upgrading your equipment with some new makeup brushes. This six piece travel kit by Beginning Boutique recently came into my possession and I am in love! The bristles are so soft against my skin, while the black and rose gold hardware make these a stylish buy!

Colour Pop Liquid Lipstick. Stila delivering the goods with this flawless Stay All Day formula, and in a wicked neon shade no less. This one’s a no brainer for those that love a statement lip and an easy application.

Bronzing Powder. Add that summertime shimmer to your complexion with the help of a bronzing powder, like this Napoleon Perdis must-have. What I love most about this product is the build-able colour and radiant finish. Not to mention, how darling is this mosaic pattern?

Liquid Eyeliner. For the most precise cat eye, I recommend the Sephora Fingertip Liner. Just as it’s name suggests, this baby slides onto your finger to allow for the most controlled application. Did someone say #gamechanger?

Rosey Lip Stain. Because nothing says spring beauty like a soft and feminine shade of pink. Otherwise the perfect shade for brunch with the girls, this Sephora gem offers a rich hue and hydrating finish. What more could you want in a lip stain?

I’de love to hear your very own spring beauty buys fashionista’s? Have you found the perfect volumising mascara or perhaps a must-have highlighter? Leave me a little comment below with your best tips!


Preppy Style: Meet Me At The Met Steps

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

alt="Preppy Style"











Cue Princess Of Wales Check Dress, Wittner Tomas Pump Heels, St Frock Cape, Mon Purse iPhone Case, Pandora Dazzling Droplet Ring, Pandora Radiant Hearts Ring, Skagen Watch.

Where Upper East Side queen meets 90’s school girl cool, I’m channelling my favourite on-screen style icons with this plaid princess getup. While I don’t have Cher’s high-tech wardrobe organiser, or Blair Waldorf’s couture closet, I’m styling a chic, check print as part of Cue’s new season drop.

One similarity Cher and Blair share, is a penchant for accessorising. I’m teaming my plaid frock with a structured cape for extra preppy style. Of course no outfit is complete without a killer pair of pumps, and these suede points are the perfect choice.

In true Blair Waldorf style, I’m adding a little monogram to my outfit, by means of new leathery goods from Mon Purse. A final touch of sparkle is seen with some new Pandora gems; golden and and encrusted with jewels.

Now, stop eyeing off my #ootd and join me on the Met steps for FroYo and a take down.
