Opulent Florals for Winter – Shop the Look

Remember that scene in The Devil Wears Prada, where boss lady Miranda pipes up and says, “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking!” I wonder if she thought about Florals for winter?

So to give you some inspo into wearing the trend, I rounded up a few of my favourite, very 70’s, very textured and very floral winter must haves…

ACTIVE

ACTIVE

Just because I’m working out, it doesn’t mean I want to feel worse about how I look. Moving your body is a great way to show yourself some love, so why would you kill your mood, your spirit and your motivation with ratty, tatty and just plain unflattering workout wear? Cute workout clothes are an investment and more than that, they are a absolute necessity! With so many stylish options out there, like the latest Forever New Activewear, you’ll not only be motivated to move more, but you’ll love doing it too!

A Shoulder to Try On

A Shoulder to Try On

How cute is the off shoulder trend for summer? My favourite way to wear this trend is opting for a flowy, oversized off the shoulder top worn with cute denim cut offs or skinny jeans. It’s such a great, easy breezy look for warmer weather. Wear it two ways… Check out some of my fave in store picks, right now on how to nail this trend, whether you want to expose bare shoulders, or just show some skin…

All about those stripes!

All about those stripes!

Give a girl the right stripes, and she can rock any look! Well, in my case at least! I could live in stripes and IMO you can never have too many striped options in your wardrobe. I just love how stripes add that street style look to what ever you’re wearing, plus they are such versatile pieces.

Fringed Benefits!

Fringed Benefits!

[tps_header]Fringed details on bags, clothing and accessories are my latest obsession! I recently bought the most amazing leather fringed duffel bag from Forever New that I am in love with. It’s so perfect and big enough for me to carry my daily life with me. But it’s not just the bag that has me swooning, I love fringed details on just about anything. I feel that it adds a subtle element of  boho playfulness to any outfit. So I’ve scoured the net to find some more lust worthy fringed pieces, starting of course with a little more details on my new love bag… [/tps_header] Forever New Florence Fringe Duffle I’ve had my eye on it for some time and snapped one up the other day. It’s gorgeous in every way. The colour is “stone” which is a mix of brown and grey (more grey) and it goes with everything, especially my staple, jeans. It’s 100% leather, made in India, so you know it’s top notch. It’s much bigger than it looks, which suits me just fine since I can fit quite a lot in it and love, love, love that it can be worn on the shoulder or cross body! Get it from Forever New…

Forever New, Cote d’Azur Summer Collection

Forever New, Cote d’Azur Summer Collection

[tps_header] The Forever New Cote d’Azur collection launched in stores this week and let me tell you gals, it’s probably my favourite Forever New collection to date. It’s got all the elements of elegance, refined style and glamour without being overly racy or too seductive. Think Hollywood’s golden era, redefined in classic, modern day silhouettes with playful prints and very ladylike finishes. Midi skirts, lace, crop tops, soft fabrics and scallop details. The collection was inspired by the beautiful blue Azure waters that reflect the golden sunshine, so the prominent colours for this collection are buttercup yellow, porcelain white and Mediterranean blue. I popped into store to check it out and it’s such a beautiful collection, with very versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched to create show stopping looks for any occasion. To give you gals some inspiration behind the collection, I put together three looks for three different occasions… Off Duty Ladylike I fell hopelessly in love with this gorgeous buttercup skirt. It has the power to make you feel like a Hollywood starlet. This look is the perfect little day outfit for high tea with the girls, or lunching with your man on the weekends. Soft,…

Crop Tops & Midi Skirts #EleganceUntamed Outfit Post

Crop Tops & Midi Skirts #EleganceUntamed Outfit Post

I’m really into my full midi skirt these days, so  when I was planning my first Elegance Untamed outfit post for Wild Africa Cream, I knew I wanted to start with this piece! Elegance Untamed is all about empowering your style and unleashing your inner wild child, but in a tasteful and classy way. Like adding a pop of leopard print to an all black outfit to break it up and a little. Although my outfit is all black, I wanted to keep my shoes neutral, since a nude shoe always looks better and I love how my Loubies compliment the colouring of the leopard print scarf. I also can’t believe that I’m actually wearing a crop top! That’s a skirt I thought I’d never wear and a top I thought I never wear! As much as I love this whole look, I must be honest, I never saw myself in it! So I definitely feel as though I’ve untamed my look and empowered myself to be more girly and glam. Outfit details: Crop top and Full Midi Skirt Forever New Earrings, Bag, Bracelet and Scarf – Accessorize Heels – Christian Louboutin

Skirts in Full Swing

Skirts in Full Swing

I’m trying to step out of my style comfort zone. For a girl who wears jeans-jeans-and-more-jeans, it’s a hard thing to do. Trust me! Lately, full swing midi skirts have really caught my eye. They look so glam, effortless and stylish. So, when I spotted this beaut at Forever New, hesitant at first, I tried it on and fell in love with it! Everything about it is perfecto! The cut is very flattering on my frame. The high waist doesn’t make me look short and frumpy (which happens to me with midi skirts) and I love that it’s not solid black. The horizontal “burnout” stripes give it a nice vintage feel, and keep it looking stylish! Here’s a few virtual looks I’ve put together on how I’d style this fabulous skirt… Ladylike Lace Crop Top: Forever New. Snakeskin Laceup Heels: ZARA. My favourite way to style a full midi skirt like this one, would be with lace up heels! I love the effect the laces give to this skirt and transform it from 50’s style to modern glam. Then, to keep it ladylike, I’d pair it with a pretty lace crop top, tucked in to reveal the beautiful waistband of the skirt. Monochrome Plain White…
