Half Up

One of the latest hair trends that seems to be taking over my instagram feed is the half up top knot or bun. I tried it but didn’t think it did me any favours, so resorted to my regular top-knot for that never fail, bad hair day, rescue remedy. Although the ladies below are certainly looking super stylish so I might have to give it another crack!

Here are some pics for your Friday perusal – does it inspire you? Have you tried it? What do you think?!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone x

Sexy Shoulders

The off the shoulder look is one that has made a number of comebacks over the years and expect to see it in full force again this summer. Whether cropped, floral or lace, get in on the trend in the form of a top or dress, knowing that you will be perfectly attired for long, hot summer days and nights.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone x

I hate being late! Always have, in fact if I want to arrive somewhere fashionably late I have been known to sit in the car and wait for the minutes to tick by!

A wristwatch is obviously a practicality, but it also another way of showing a glimpse of your style and with so many gorgeous choices available the hardest thing is narrowing down the options!

Here is a round-up of the current trends on offer:

Oversized Menswear – large, luxe, stainless steel styles from the pages of a menswear mag. This is one trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere with all the major watch makers continuing to cash in on the popularity of the look. Whether yellow or rose gold, silver or black, these watches definitely make a statement.

A little bit boho

The girls from two of my favourite fashion blogs, They All Hate Us and Sincerely Jules, have been sporting these boho styled clutches. I love how they add colour and texture to a simple outfit, plus size wise they seem pretty practical.
