Style Sessions: Date Night Outfit – The Little Black Dress Reimagined

I packed this dress to wear on a date night during our Honeymoon travels and wanted to share a little flashback of it with you. I wore this during NYFW and it’s from LK Bennett, one of Kate Middleton’s favorite designers. I love the embroidered detail at the top and floaty knife pleat bottom – it’s such a fun dress to wear!

You can also style it down for day by changing up your handbag from a clutch to a chic tote and swap the heels for a cute pair of ballet flats.

Style Sessions: Blush Pleated Midi Skirt and Stripes – The Perfect Pair!

Chris and I are enjoying our European honeymoon at the moment! We are leaving Copenhagen today and embarking on a two week adventure visiting some amazing places like Stockholm, Berlin, Oslo, St Petersburg, Helsinki and more. I can’t wait to share it all with you!

Until then, I wanted to share a flashback to one of my most popular outfits on Pinterest. I definitely think a blush pleated midi skirt and stripe top is the perfect pair! Are you a fan of pleated midi skirts too? I think there’s something so soft and romantic about a blush colored skirt, but pairing it with a navy and ivory stripe top keeps the look modern and not too ‘girly’.

Style Sessions – Casual Weekend Outfit ideas – Stripes and Distressed Denim

Lately I’ve been keen to share some of my go-to casual weekend outfit ideas and nothing is better (or easier) than a classic stripes and distressed denim combo. This  outfit was from last Sunday morning when Chris and I went to get a coffee. He hates waiting around for me to get ready (even though I actually don’t take long at all to get ready… he thinks anything over two minutes is a long time! We’ll just never be like guys… am I right?!), so a simple stripe shirt and jeans are quick to throw on and so easy to accessorize.

I’ve been obsessed with these new ‘Bella’ mirrored sunglasses from DIFF Eyewear, don’t you think there’ just something about mirrored shades at elevate a look instantly? I have a few pairs of sunglasses from DIFF and there’s just something different about the lens, the color makes the world look seriously gorgeous. I noticed it the second I put them on and made my Mom try them on too – she was like ‘oh wow!’. They’re also polarized too, which is great for $85! Of course, my Converse kicks are always on high-rotation too – love them.

Chris and I leave for our honeymoon in Europe this week and couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be sharing our adventure on Instagram, so be sure to follow along and join us in Europe!

Style Sessions: Wedding Series – Papinelle Floral Bridesmaid Robes

It was wonderful to share our wedding day and special wedding video with you in my post yesterday. In case you missed it, be sure to check it out here. We had such a magnificent day!

I want to take you further into the day and share some of the special elements. The best place to start is, of course, the morning of our wedding. The night before my wedding day, I stayed at my family home and invited my bridal party to join me for a fun slumber party. My parents home is on the water, so we enjoyed walking down to the beach for a seafood feast at a restaurant, then came back home to watch Father of the Bride. It’s one of my favorite movies and absolutely perfect for the night before your wedding!

Before we started watching the movie, I surprised my bridesmaids and mother with a gift – these gorgeous floral robes from Papinelle! I absolutely adored them and knew they all would too… you know when you have an amazing gift for someone and get so excited to give it because you know they’ll love it? That was me for weeks before the wedding! I just couldn’t wait to give them their floral bridesmaid robes in the pretty Papinelle gift boxes. Everyone was thrilled, we all put them on straight away and watched the movie together before heading off to bed. The night before my sisters wedding she hardly slept a wink, so I took a light sleeping tablet and it worked perfectly, I slept eight hours and woke up all refreshed with nervous excitement for the big day!

Wedding Series – Papinelle Floral Bridesmaid Robes

We all loved wearing our matching robes while getting ready the morning of the wedding. When choosing robes for the girls, I really wanted something feminine but not too girly – the mix of blush pink floral with a navy background achieved this perfectly. I also want to make special mention of the tailored cut, Papinelle robes and sleepwear all have a super flattering shape that suits women beautifully. The material is a luxurious mix of silk and cotton, so they feel just beautiful against your skin.

Oh and the length, they aren’t too short! The delicate lace trimmed hem sat at knee length, which gave a stylish and sophisticated feel to these floral bridesmaid robes. When it came time to get changed for the church, no one wanted to take them off – we all said they were so pretty, the girls should just wear them to the wedding!

Since the wedding, we all enjoy wearing them at home daily. It’s such a special reminder of a wonderful day and our friendship with each other. If you’re a bride-to-be, I have to say robes are a brilliant gift for your bridal party and mother – I also definitely recommend checking out Papinelle and their beautiful collection.

Style Sessions – How To Wear Colored Jeans

Want to know the best tips for how to wear colored jeans? I’ve got the tricks you need to wear them with style and make this look your own. Just follow these steps and you’ll find wearing colored jeans is as easy as one, two, three…

TIP ONE:
Don’t be afraid of color! Sometimes, brighter is better – especially in spring and summer. Berry and green jeans work beautifully with so many different tops, these colors also manage to be fun and stylish – a perfect combination. If brights aren’t your thing, work the color trend in with beautiful blush pink or olive green jeans – they are equally gorgeous and so on point this season.

TIP TWO:
Keep the rest of your look neutral. Chambray is one of the best options for colored jeans! White, grey and black tee’s are classic options that work well too. Also, never underestimate how fabulous a crisp white shirt looks with pretty much anything and everything – it’s a fresh and stunning addition to jeans of any color.

TIP THREE:

Style Sessions – Stylish Ways To Wear Nautical Outfits

I love wearing nautical outfits in summer (well, truth be told, any time of year actually). There’s just something so polished about traditional navy and white colors, plus they’re usually in the form of stripes – and everyone loves a gorgeous stripe outfit!

Wearing nautical outfits doesn’t mean you need to look like the Captain on a cruise ship. The key is to add elements that channel a crisp ocean vibe, but keep it subtle. One of my favorite ways is a blazer, it’s so versatile and definitely gives a sophisticated feel to any look. I’ve had the one below for a few years, which proves classic pieces never go out of style. It has gorgeous little navy and white stripe trim details and a chic brass button with a subtle anchor. I like adding it with a stripe tee, skinny jeans and sneakers for an effortless day time vibe, then at night you can swap them out for heels.

I’d love you hear your thoughts – what do you think of nautical outfits? Love them, or leave them? Do you have any fun ideas on how to bring a nautical vibe to an outfit?

The three I’m sharing today have been super popular on my Pinterest and best of all, easily flatter every body shape! As summer approaches, the evenings can still be a little cool – so simply add a cropped denim jacket or cute scarf to transition from warm days to cooler nights.

I’d love to hear from you! Tell me guys, which one is your favorite?

Style Sessions: Relaxed Weekend Outfit – Linen Tee, Black Jeans and Celine Sunglasses

This relaxed weekend outfit is my go-to… it’s hard to beat a perfect linen tee, black jeans and Converse kicks. Add fabulous accessories like these Celine Bridge Sunglasses! Guys they are seriously stunning, fit your face so well and feel really comfy, have super dark lenses (I love that you can’t see your eyes) and instantly elevate outfits. They are worth every cent (and also currently $130 off retail price). Every girl also needs a fun leopard print scarf (under $30) and fab monogram handbag.

At every NYFW I’ve been to in recent years, linen has been a huge trend. I am obsessed with it and found these brilliant linen tee’s for just $17. I literally bought ten of them in different colors (white, grey, green, navy, black)… you can see all the colors in the scoop neck tee version and V neck tee version. If you haven’t worn linen before, you’re missing out! I didn’t get what all the fuss was about, but then I wore it… and now I live in it 24/7 with linen pajamas, our sheets are all linen and where I can, I’ve been buying up linen tops and dresses. What’s so special about linen? It’s a natural fiber that breathes and as it doesn’t hold moisture, it stays cool, dry and feels amazing on your skin.

I wanted to also make a special mention of these black Paige Verdugo Skinny Jeans, they are my favorite jeans EVER. I bought two pairs, I love them that much. They have the perfect rise (not too low, not too high), feel so comfy and don’t stretch out or fade. They’re super slimming and flattering too! I’m not the only one who thinks so either, they have over 50 five-star reviews.

This is a super simple relaxed weekend outfit from last Sunday, with pieces I’m sure you all have in your closets already! If not, they’re classics I swear by and believe every girl needs in her wardrobe…

Style Sessions Flashback: How To Wear Bright Colors – Five Steps Every Girl Can Follow

I’m sharing a Style Sessions flashback today and tips on how to wear bright colors, with five steps every girl can follow. This has been one of my most popular looks on Pinterest (follow me on Pinterest here) and it’s also a personal fashion favorite of mine too! It’s a look everyone can create and perfect for styling day or night.

Best of all, you probably already own the pieces to create this bright outfit. This look also suits all body shapes and heights, the skinny jeans and blazer balance proportions perfectly. It’s a must try… and trust me, this is a look that strikes the coveted mix of on-trend and classic chic – you can wear it season after season, for years to come.

 

How To Wear Bright Colors – Five Steps Every Girl Can Follow:

  1.  The most important trick is to start simple and add just a few pops of color.
  2.  Choose one of your favorite brightly colored tops (silk always has a beautiful feel and floats so well on your body).
  3.  Add a chic blazer in a single hue, black, navy, blush and cream are all classic, stunning options.
  4.  Select your go-to skinny jeans, whether they’re light or dark it doesn’t matter – denim always looks incredible with brights!
  5. For the finishing touch, add a pop of color with bright shoes! There are so many cute bright flat shoes for day, or amp it up with heels for night.
