Hibiscus Hues

Processed with VSCO with u3 preset

Hey friends! Today’s post is just a quick one as we are in the middle of a holiday weekend here in Bermuda! This is a typical summer look for me. Skorts have been my most used pieces this summer I think. They work well with everything! Not to mention they are so comfy! A colourful tie top, some slides and a basket bag of some sort – simple, comfy and so good in the heat!

Today we are taking it slow and after a crazy Cupmatch weekend. Getting organized at home, do some laundry (maybe), run out the house to do a few errands and grab an iced coffee with Marcus at some point I’m sure, oh and beaching it of course! A very content chill day for us and I know I’ll be loving every second of it after a party filled couple of days! So I thought I’d get this look up for you quickly! Now just waiting for Marcus to finish up planting some more sunflowers in our garden and going to grab some breakies in a bit! Can’t wait to show you some shots of our first bunch of sunflowers we grew soon!

So before checking out again I wanted to share todays look from Urban Outfitters and a few other favourites. I always love a bit of Urban Outfitters but their ‘new in’ has been looking particularly spot on at the moment so I thought I’d show you some of my favourite recent picks: my blushy tie crop top and embroidered striped skort.

As I mentioned I cant get enough of skorts this summer! …And this ones striped! Double win! I love vertical striped pieces because they give, petite people like myself, the illusion of a longer frame. (There’s a Ci Ci Secret for those of you other petite girlies like myself!) Stripes are a closet essential in pretty much anyone’s wardrobe. Then when summer comes along I love including colorful combinations of this classic print. I have been on the summery stripes bandwagon lately for sure!

OOTD: COMFY CASUAL AT WORK

 So what a long day and I finally get a moment to show off my outfit of the day! So proud I was up that little bit earlier to pull together a decent outfit before work this morning. I’ve been craving comfy, casual outfits lately (probably because December’s marathon of party attire). Working in the cutest boutique in Bermuda, Atelerie, I try to look effortlessly put-together as much as I can. A sweater or turtle neck with jeans is usually a pretty simple combo, so it’s the layering and accessories that matter. In this case, a faux fur vest, your go to every day simple jewelry, some fresh new adidas superstars, and nude matte lip to tie all the neutrals together.

CAMBRIDGE OOTD PHOTO DIARY

OOTD Number One

So just thought I’d finally post a few photos of two of my favourite OOTD from being in Cambridge. Such a delay, I know, between starting my new job which I can not wait to show off the amazing things Atelerie (Womens Clothering Store Bermuda) has to offer on my blog, so definitely stay posted for that! The weather was so amazing, the best fall weather I could ask for! Was a little taste of fall before I had to head back home to the heat. Of course since it was going to be my last time being in Cambridge until ages, I thought I just had to be such a tourist and have a last few pictures out and about around Cambridge Uni campus. The buildings are beautiful and I was loving the bit of sunshine!

OOTD Number two

I loved getting a little taste of fall and taking out some bits from my fall wardrobe! I literally can’t wait for Bermuda to start getting a little bit cooler, I’m so ready for a colder and cosier wardrobe and to start layering up! I can’t wait to start posting some more wintery OOTDs. Say bye to summer brights and pastels, as I always say you can’t really go wrong with some winter black and white staples so stock up on the classics for stunning fall and winter looks. It seams like I’m buying more and more  creams, whites and blacks for all my autumn/ winter essentials.

 I’m literally loving everything faux fur for this winter as well! It’s not just scarfs, there’s bobble beanie hats, vest, jackets, jumpers and even some really cute side shoulder bags. But a faux fur scarf, I would definitely list as a winter essential, pieces like this are timeless! I can’t deny the furrier it is the cosier it is for this winter, just have my fingers crossed Bermuda’s winter lets me wear them as much as possible! I’ll be loving life in my furry things through all of winter!

OOTD: DO YOUR SQUATS, EAT YOUR VEGETABLES, WEAR RED LIPSTICK, AND DON’T LET BOYS BE MEAN TO YOU

Was out for the day spending, the last weekend of September out and about just loving the sunshine! I just thought I would make the most of the weather with some florals and a crop top of course! Just sharing my OOTD of me wearing this cute skirt from H&M, basic black crop top and my favourite Nine West sandals. These gladiator look sandals are my new obsession and I love how well they can dress up such a simple outfit and create a totally different look. The skirt is perfectly matched with a simple top because of its bright floral pattern. I was loving my outfit today so couldn’t resist adding a few photos from today, let me know what you think!

I’m always throwing on this simple Michael Kors bag with so many of my outfits when I don’t want to be carrying around too much, but instead just the essentials like my MAC Lady Danger lipstick, keys, money and phone. It’s the perfect bag for trips to town or nights out!

I’m always about my PINK and VS fragrances and not usually am I using this Moschino fragrance but I forgot how amazing it smelt until this morning!

I’m absolutely obsessing over different shades of red lipstick at the moment and couldn’t resist showing off this shade, I love it! “Do your squats, eat your vegetables, wear red lipstick and don’t let boys be mean to you”! This quote I found on Pinterest made my day and I swear is perfect girl code (In my opinion at least)!

Lipstick: MAC Lady Danger

It’s always so hard for me to wear something else other then black at least somewhere in my outfits. I think I’ll stop wearing black when they decide to make a darker colour!
