BANDANA BABE 

Hey guys! Happy Sunday and happy weekend! Hope everyone’s weekend has been amazing! It was gorgeous weather here today in Bermuda! Today’s post is actually yesterday afternoon’s look. 

So, I’m not sure what to call this look but we can just go with “off duty” chic! All I know is, these are currently some of my favorite new items in my Spring wardrobe- especially my bandana (from HERE / HERE). Accessorizing with a colourful, printed bandana or neckerchief is one easiest ways to take a comfy casual or basic look to the next level. I also really like how it looks with any type of denim: jeans, skirts, and overalls but I absolutely love pairing it back to stripes! Bandanas are a nice way to add colour, interest and dimension to your outfit in an easy and affordable way. Tie one on your bag, under a collared shirt, around your wrist! Mix it up and have fun with it! 

How are you having fun with fashion this spring? I thought I’d share my favorite ways to tie a neckerchief or bandana at the moment…

What I wore: Top: Rag & Bone, Pants: Bailey 44, Bag: French Connection, Bandana: Chan Luu, Sunglasses: Sunday Somewhere, Shoes: Vince

Hope you have a great Sunday evening and thanks for checking out my post! See ya! Xx

MATCH ME IF YOU CAN.

Hi guys! Here’s yesterday’s comfy Sunday look-I just wanted to be comfy but I still wanted to rock my new TopShop pinafore dress. We went for an amazing Sunday walk with the pup and BF, after I spent the morning brunching with two of my favorite girls, Riley (@lifeofrileyrose) and Dacotah (@dacotahbaksh)- it was such a beautiful Sunday here- Bermuda truly never seizes to amaze me! 

I love pinafore dresses but make it pink and velvet I most definitely have to have it. I’m sure you would all agree when we first heard velvet was coming back, we thought it wouldn’t stick around- am I wrong? It would just be a trend that passes quickly and isn’t seen for years later again, did anyone else have that feeling? (Think we might have been wrong- looks like velvet is here to stay even through upcoming seasons as we are already starting to see.) It’s one of my favorite things to see when an old trend comes back and really sticks around! When I wear velvet I tend to like to keep the rest of my outfit minimal- i love how velvet is somehow always a good statement all on its own! That’s why I kept it simple when pairing this super cute pink pinafore dress from TopShop (find them here) with a plain black T and some super simple black glove booties. When it comes to wearing colour, I struggle. I know where I stand with black, white and grey and that’s why I love soft pastel colors like this pink- it makes wearing colors a lot easier and really quirks up a boring all neutral outfit. 

Having a mostly all black wardrobe, I tend to buy more things that go with what I currently wear- which basically means I’m still in that all black circle. While darker shades will probably always be my most loved, I am trying to add some more colour to my life like soft pinks like this super cute pinafore dress. Recently, I’ve been loving pastel tones alongside my usual favourites – tans, blacks, whites and greys.

For when I really can’t step away from my beloved neutrals I’ve got a couple of pairs of shoes and accessories in nudey-pastel shades. I know they are not necessarily bright statement pieces but when paired with similar colors you don’t look like your forever dressed like I’m in mourning or some sort of ninja. For Spring, I’m going to try and venture into more pastels.

What spring trends are you currently eyeing up? You know what I really can’t wait for is those velvet pink Joie slides that will be coming to atelerie this early spring that I featured in my last post. Here

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend and I hope this was a pick me up from the Monday blue- thanks for checking in!

OUT AT SEA

Yay for a new month! I love August! So today I’m sharing my look from Saturday evening, in possibly my new favorite maxi from The Jetset Diaries. One of my favorite things about fashion is allowing yourself to step out of your style comfort zone and dress a little differently than you normally would- like me in this maxi and not something more mini or midi. (Letting those more petite girls know it is still possible for you to wear a maxi!) This enchanting maxi dress was made for summery adventures. It moves like a dream with every step and is sure to make a statement wherever you choose to wear it. I love the mauve pink color and I love that this maxi can be both dressed down with barefeet and salty ocean hair or dressed up with a pair of wrap up wedges and adding your cutest clutch for a summer night out. 

So many of us only wear maxis or pretty dresses, like this one, solely for special occasions. It’s not every day you get to wear your most luxurious dress or most favorite dress, your highest heels and actually do your make up so why not do it when ever you you get the chance really?! Whether it’s an important networking event, a wedding or a summer party with important people or just some cocktails with some friends, you’re going to need the perfect evening dress. So I’ve helped pick out these 5 evening maxi dresses for your special night out this summer from some of my favorite stores. There are lots of opportunities to dress up for evening occasions and summer parties! Even alongside flat sandals, this outfit or some of these dresses I’ve picked, would look fab…1. TopShop Tulle Lace Maxi Dress

2. The Jetset Diaries Las Estrellas Maxi Dress

3. Miss Guided Strappy Coin Maxi

4. Urban Outfitters Ecote Anya Embroidered Gauze Dress

5. Mara Hoffman Crochet Tie Front Dress

What I wore: The Jetset Diaries Maxi (Atelerie), Chan Luu Choker and Wrap Bracelet, Gigi Necklaces (Atelerie), TopShop Wrap up Block Heels, Gaia Clutch

GOODBYE DECEMBER

The year is almost over but we still got some parties to go, YAY! 2015 was a pretty good year for me and I am wrapping it up with a OOTD on a beautiful December day in Bermuda!
    
   

Here I am wearing a plaid 80s inspired A-line New Look skirt, which had their highlighted moment this year, and I hope the 80s trends will still be a trend in 2016. I am surprisingly not over the 80s inspired fashion yet! Right now I am considerably obsessed with turtlenecks, so I chose to wear this cute grey one from Zara and some super comfy ankle boots both, as well as my favorite faux leather jacket, both from H & M.

    
  

This is what I looked like yesterday! I love my 50 shades of grey!

   

  

  


It is now time to wave goodbye to 2015. Can you imagine it? This year has flown by, I honestly feel like it was just yesterday that we started 2015 and all of a sudden its all over!

Wishing only the best for your 2016 year to come!
