Are you guys ready for spring? Or as we know it here in England 'Springter', springy winter. We don't care if snow falls tomorrow, we will still rock our mules and duster coats. A little sunshine and we are already packing away our winter jackets, I always keep one out just in case. But let's pretend it is spring, 18 degrees and sunny everyday..... tarra....it's time for a wardrobe change. What are your spring essentials? My absolute must haves... THE SHIRT DRESS Even if you have one already, go out and get another. The shirt dress has been around since 1726 and is going no where. Invest in a good cotton white shirt dress and you cannot go wrong. You will be rocking this baby in spring and summer and layering it in the winter (don't thank me, send me a cheque) I got mine below from Weekday store. If you want to splurge then these are the favourites on my wishlist Marni shirt dress & other stories Aganovich shirt dress The next essential is a ... you guessed it DENIM JACKET I personally like oversize or boxy denim jackets, I also prefer them In a vintage wash. These are my favs from Monki, Waven and See by Chloe all available at asos. Next, what would you do without your MULES Mules are a great fashion statement. It shows that you are not afraid to show your toes because Rose from the nail shop has just given you your first pedicure since September 2015. Whilst your Wolverine feet have been hacked off and rehabilitated for spring (hopefully), this is the perfect way to show them off. Lastly that FLORAL SKIRT It is that time of the year where blending in seamlessly with the park flowers is allowed and accepted. These skirts are easy to dress up for a wedding and dress down for a picnic in the park. Absolute must haves. So mi beautiful ladies (and men if that's your thing, I don't care ?) start updating your spring wardrobe, pack up your winter coats and let's do this ?. See you at the nail shop, let's put an end to winter legs forever! Until next time mi buttercups. Buziaki ?
The power suit aka mens wear, aka women do it better is a trend that has been around for sometime. I have a few suits in my wardrobe but everytime I attempted to wear a suit to work I always veto my self with the exact words of "where are you even going sef" and "are you the CEO" , just as I put it on I take it off even quicker, until I saw the way some celebs made it their own and then I was like "I can do this". Here are some ways you can wear and own a power suit look and still put a twist on it. 1. Choose a colour that says "I ain't scurred to be bold". I chose a pinkish salmon colour. Love it, it stood out. 2. Wear something lacey or feminine inside. I find that looks with an Oxford shirt is taking menswear too literal. Do it differently. Wear a camisole and still rock a strong look. 3. Wear shorts with your suit. It adds a little extra and will make you stand out 4. A high Waisted trouser will flatter anyone, making your legs look longer, you can't go wrong. 5. Pair it up with accessories. Bling that look up with either a broach or some neck bling. 6. Wear it with trainers and a peg leg pair of trousers with a t-shirt and a blazer. So my buttercups, just do you, don't let the suit wear you oh. Show the suit who is boss. Until next time I hope you enjoyed. Please comment and give your own tips or tell me who rocked it best.
