Satin-Finished Trend Inspiration

First of all, you need to be aware that this material is not very forgiving so if you are conscious about any lumps and bumps – before buying into this trend, I suggest you invest in the right underwear especially if they are fitted styles. The right underwear can make a big difference to anything that’s too clingy. The satin-finished trend look is very glamorous and feminine but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear it during the day! It all depends on how it’s paired. I love the idea of a slip dress worn over a tee, and with sneakers during the day – and come evening time, remove the tee and wear with barely-there sandals. Add some accessories of your choice. Beautifully designed jewelry such as a simple ring will definitely complete the look. Now you are ready for a date night or meeting up with friends. It doesn’t need to be a complete satin outfit! I have worn this top with jeans and…

Cropped Top & Printed Maxi Skirt

When you think of cropped tops, the first thing that comes to mind is how much of your stomach will be exposed. Actually, you don’t need to reveal any skin at all. You can choose a longer version of the crop top. I’m not very comfortable revealing too much skin around my midriff and if I do show skin – well it’s just a tiny bit. Crop tops are available in different lengths and styles. You just need to be comfortable with your choice. Although I like loose fitting crop tops which are more flattering on some body types I tend to buy more fitted ones. I also like the longer version of the crop top as I feel I can wear it more often –  and I find it more elegant which fits with my personal style. They can be paired with high-waisted shorts, jeans, trousers, and skirts – if you are really conscious about showing skin in that area. In today’s post,…

Trend-Basket Bags

In today’s post, I’m sharing some of my favourite basket straw bags. You just know that spring/summer is here when you see basket bags popping up everywhere. There aren’t just lurking around in the background. Actually, they are more popular than ever and are not limited to picnics or beach use. If there is an item you should add to your wish list, is a wicker/basket/straw bag. That’s if you haven’t already purchased one of course. Basket bags can be paired with basically any spring or summer outfit. They come in all shapes and sizes so you can find one that fits your personal style. Most of them are affordable so buying a couple won’t break the bank. It took a while before I finally got one. It was really cheap (so cheap that I won’t even mention the price) and it’s beautifully made. Although you can get them in many colours –  I love the natural tan colour as it goes…

Printed Maxi Dresses For Spring/Summer

It’s has been a while since my last post but I’m now back and hope to be a bit more active getting blog posts out. I’m sure you have all noticed lots of maxi dresses on the high streets and internet shops. They are no more reserved for evenings but can be worn throughout the day and night. A maxi dress is a statement piece, especially if the print is as beautiful as this one. I love wearing maxi dresses in summer, mostly because they are very comfortable, such as the one I’m showing in this post. I can just pull on a maxi dress and go. Getting dress is less stressful and they don’t need much effort when it comes to styling. The one I’m wearing in this post – I bought recently on sale from Matchesfashion. Unfortunately, there aren’t many sizes left but I have picked a few others which I also like. This dress is timeless and feminine and has lots of…
