I love this daisy dress (the fabric is nice and thick), adding some summer to my outfit in these colder months! Check out how I did my makeup here. Thanks for stopping by.
Lots of Love,
I have been online window shopping again…this time it is Online Window Shopping – Basics! I think it is definitely worth investing in great basic pieces that will last wear after wear. Investing in these pieces is worthwhile because they will not only last season after season but never go out of style but can be easily spruced up with some lower priced trendy items.
As it is cold out side right now I will start with a coat. You can never go wrong with a classic trench coat! I also really like Duffle/Toggle coats like Paddington Bear wears. Finding one with a big hood is a must because it will keep you really warm! A classic nude (or black) pump is another fantastic piece that will go with anything and is something every lady should have in her wardrobe. A nice sweater will keep you warm and toasty in the winter and can also be worn with a plethora of items – jeans, skirts, dress trousers…you name it!
Next up is a large brim fedora. Now I realize this may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I don’t think you can go wrong with such a classic hat (I also LOVE hats). It is also a plus that it keeps your head warm and your hair somewhat out of your face on cold and windy days. We can’t talk about classics and not mention the little black dress! I am loving this one and this one! For accessorizes, I think a great pair of sunglasses is a must; be sure to find something that fits and works with your face shape. There are so many images available online that show what shape and style suits what face shape. A favourite of mine is the Ray ban Wayfarer.
I am going to finish off with a bag (another favourite of mine)! I picked a piece I currently have and love using, a Mulberry Bayswater. This is an amazing bag that fits in the crook of your arm and can hold an amazing amount that make it easy to transition from office to day off.
When I look to invest in pieces, see the price tag and flinch I try to calculate cost per wear. If it is something I am going to wear over and over again the cost per wear goes way down – at least that is my justification! Haha!
What are some of your key pieces that you think every wardrobe should have?
Lots of Love,

In the Summer I love to wear playsuits. They are so easy (and comfortable) to just throw on and can also be dressed up or down. Zara made my two favourite ones from this summer HERE and HERE. In the autumn and winter when it is colder I still like the concept so just look for jumpsuits. I got this black Theory jumpsuit for a steal on Ebay and love it! It is great to wear out for a date night with my husband or out for drinks with girlfriends.
Here is the image from from their site so you can see more of the detail and what it looks like without a blazer.
I paired mine with a statement silver necklace, a black clutch with silver studs and some blue pumps to add some colour.
Lots of Love,
There have been so many friends and family sales this week so I have been doing a lot of online window shopping! Here are a few things that caught my eye. I love Diptyque candles and think this one would be great for Autumn. It has a unique woodsy scent that is both masculine and feminine (I love their 34 solid perfume which is also woodsy and androgynous). I have had my eye on this ring for a while. I love it! It is a Herkimer diamond and I think it is so different. The designer also makes one with a Tourmaline crystal, which is also stunning. I can’t decide which one I like more. If you are into crystals any you would love this piece and many of her others. These boots looks so comfy and timeless. I love the zip up the back. They would look great with both jeans and skirts. I love stripes and think this dress would be great for not only summer but also Autumn. Just add a wide brim fedora, tights and some boots! This jumper also would be great for the cooler months and I love the stars on it! I have a couple of piece of Julie Vos jewelry and think these bangles would be great pieces to add to my collection. I think the detail is beautiful on them. Lastly, I like the print on this skirt and think the matching top would be fun to pair with it but also a simple black tee.
Did you guys find any good sales this week?
Lots of Love,
Happy Hump Day Everyone,
As most girls do, I have a wish list going of all crazy outfits, shoes and bags I want! Here are some products that I currently have my eye on. The loafers look so comfy and will also go with anything (as my sister would say because she wears similar ones all the time!) This black clutch is such a staple item, everyone needs one in their wardrobe (I like this one because it is affordable and simple). This equipment top will add a pop to any plain bottom (skirt or trousers) while this dress is the same as one I currently have but just in a different colour (you can never have to much of a good thing right?!). These earrings are so cute and would look great in a second hole (which I am thinking of doing, with my sister). I love that you can mix and match them! I love this long dress, it is so simple and elegant. Finally, you can’t go wrong with a nude pair of pumps. I am loving this SJP pair but also these and these.
What are some of your wish list items?
Lots of love,
