Valentines Day is fast approaching and is a time for you to celebrate not only being in a relationship with an amazing person you love, but also to celebrate youself, if you’re single this year. Whether you’re taken or single, you still want to enjoy the day and look amazing doing it, so I’m working with Zaful this Valentines Day to give you some style inspiration and show you some of the beautfiul pieces they’ve got on offer for you to pick up.

When it comes to Valentines this year I want to look feminine and girly, as well as still challenging a chic and elegant look. So my key colour palette is going to be Red, Black and White, with a hint of cream and blush to go along side it. This is because they are not only appropriate colours for the day, but I always think that Red looks beautiful on women and shows a real feminine strength. It looks perfect as a dress, jumper, a statement jumpsuit or just as an accessory to an outfit; with a pair of red shoes or a good old red lip.

So, if you’re looking for a red piece this Valentines Day, this Crochet Cami Dress from Zaful would be a perfect buy. Lace is always such a gorgeous look and so why not wear it in a full piece this year. It would look beautiful paired simply with a pair of nude heels and some bouncy curls, or create a bit more of a european look by pairing it with a loose low bun. You can see more of the lovely dresses they have to offer when you click here. There’s also room for some gorgeous red underwear this Valentines Day, and body suits are the must buy this year. So, this Sheer Lace one from Zaful is the best buy for you. It still creates a sexy look, but keeps it classy and elegant; which you can’t ever beat with underwear. There’s lots more gorgeous choices over on the Zaful website if you’re looking for a new piece this year.

3 Ways To Find Your Summer Style Inspiration

Untitled design (9)

I’m always on a mission to get that perfect chic summer Parisian look, which looks super effortless no matter what the temperature, country or occasion. It’s a look that I love to admire and which I’m really trying to build my capsule summer wardrobe into. During the rest of the year, I love to have multiple pieces I can wear for all seasons and weather’s, but with summer I like to really choose my key go-to items that all work well together and can create some gorgeous looks. However, I personally find a chic and classic summer wardrobe pretty hard to nail and not let the heat and convenience of shorts and a tee become my staple wardrobe. So, I’m sharing 3 ways that I’m loving, to gain inspiration for my summer style…

1. Get On Pinterest– As you all know I’m a massive fan of Pinterest and I can’t get enough of scrolling through all the beautiful images and quotes they have. However, what I love even more is the amount of gorgeous style inspiration. So, I love to make a fashion and style inspiration mood board, get scrolling and pin some of my favourite images on there. Then, you can come back to it later, when you’re stuck for outfit inspiration or packing for a holiday.

2. Spend Time In Your Wardrobe– This may sound a bit ridiculous, but honestly one of the best ways to feel inspired by your summer style is to know exactly what items you have. Start by clearing out all your colder, winter pieces and then focus on all the beautiful summer pieces you have. This way you can start to see what colour palette’s you’ve got going on and plan what items you can wear with what.

3. Be Nosy- One of my favourite things to do is people watch and so mix this with a way of gaining some good style inspiration, and I’m hooked. I’m talking just observing what other women’s outfits, what colours, styles or patterns they’ve styled with what, or even how the mannequins have been dressed in shop windows.

With style it’s all about being inspired and having the intrigue to want to play around with your wardrobe and create some gorgeous outfit combinations.

My Partywear Wishlist

Heels | Office, Dress | Kiss The Sky, Top | Zara, Playsuit | ASOS, Bag | Zara, Clutch | Lulu Guiness , Heels | Public Desire, Dress | River Island

Party wear has to my favourite type of clothing because I really love getting all dressed up and feeling super glamourous, on a night out. I’m a real girly girl and I love being able to don a real good pair of high heels, a pair of false eye lashes and I’m ready for the great night ahead. When it comes to my party style, I either love a good statement piece, that I can throw on and instantly look put together, or I prefer something more simple and timeless; that I can dress up or down and is great piece for any occasion. So, as I’m really in the party spirit at the minute, with lot’s of my friends 18th birthday celebrations and even a hen do to go to, I thought I would share some of the items I’m lusting over at the minute.

Handbags are one of my true obsesions in life and I love collecting unique and wonderful gems, that I can treasure forever. This Lulu Guiness lips clutch is one clutch i’ve been lusting over for years, because it’s such an iconic and feminine design. I love how this one channels the popular metallics trend, which adds a hard edge to the piece, with the soft curves of the lips design.It’s such a statement piece, super timeless and although it’s expensive, I’m hope one day I’ll will be able to add it to my collection.

A really good pair of high heels is something you can’t beat on a night out, and to have a really gorgeous and super feminine, statement pair is even better. This lovely pair from Public Desire are literally giving me so much shoe envy, as they’re so unique and really pretty. They’re my favourite style of heel, as they’re really strappy and not too high. So the whole vibe of the shoe is elegant, sophisticated and gorgeously feminine. I think I’m going to have to add these to my collection, in the next few months.

What’s your favourite partywear vibe this year?

Dressing for the festive season is all about raiding your wardrobe for anything sparkly and maybe even buying a few new sequin pieces or two; and New Years Eve is no exception. It’s all about celebrating the last night of 2016 in style, and there’s no way you’re going to be rocking a simple little black number. It’s the one night of the year you can really let your style go and choose a piece that you will sparkle in all night; and know that even if 2016 hasn’t been the best year for you, at least you looked amazing in the last few hours of it. So, as this New Years Eve is just around the corner, I thought I would share 17 Sparkly Buys, all under £50…

When it comes to some of the biggest style trends for 2016, knee high boots and body suits have to be mentioned. These sparkly black, knitted Knee High boots, from Boohoo, have to be the perfect piece of footwear to rock for new years eve. They look super chic, elongate your legs and also look amazing paired with a shift or tee-shirt style dress. This pair also have a really lovely point on the end of each boot, which is bang on trend for A/W 16 & 17 and also adds a sharp contrast to a feminine look. On the other hand, this sparkly body suit, from Topshop, would be a great piece to wear if you love a good sequin or two, and want to create a more statement outfit to wear this new years eve. The high neck adds a sense of class, however the plunging slit on the chest keeps it super feminine and sexy. It would look great paired with a more tailored pencil skirt or even jeans, if you’re looking for a more casual look.

A really good dress is a piece I can never fail to love in my wardrobe, and I think new years is no exception. They create an effortlessly chic vibe to your whole outfit and are so easy to throw on and create instant glamour. This one from Pretty Little Thing would be the perfect piece, as it’s not only in a really on trend nude colour, but with pop’s of embellishment it keeps the piece fun and super party appropriate. I’m also really in the love with the long sleeves and the deep slit on the cleavage. However, is bodycon is not your thing and you prefer a piece that’s much more loose and comfortable to wear, then this sparkly blue, ombre shift dress from Zara, would be the perfect choice. The ombre sequin detail makes it a real statement piece and super easy to throw on and pair with some of your favourite neutral heels. The dress really does all the talking and the loose shift style makes it really comfortable to wear, all night long, and will cover a multitude of Christmas sins.

What are you planning to wear this New Years Eve?
