Celine!

Could we just take a brief moment to applaud the style genius who is Celine Dion’s stylist? I have to say that her creativity and eye for colour is something else! I love each and every single one of these outfits. She certainly knows what suits her an is unafraid to explore shapes and fit. Check these lovely outfits out!

Where to shop – tips

When it comes to shopping on the UK high street compared with other countries I’d say we are pretty spoilt for choice. Whether you like to stay on trend with the latest looks or are looking for something a little quirky or different you’ll be sure to find something you love and within your budget. We are at a time in fashion where you can look great for less with some of our most loved brands creating stunning pieces at great prices.

Having lived in London for many years there were certain brands that I could bank on to find a gem for an occasion or to simply freshen up my wardrobe. Now with internet shopping being so conveniently at our finger-tips, finding what you need online saves the trip to multiple shops and trying on item after item. Personally, I prefer trying on what I buy and saving myself the annoyance of having an item delivered and finding the fit isn’t right (especially if I’m pressed for time). I also like feeling the material, looking at the finishing and judging the quality before making a purchase.

If like me you don’t mind shopping in stores then sample sales are a great way to find good quality clothing at a great price. I follow ldnfashion.com who always has the latest sample sales on their site. They often share sample sale dates and location for brands such as Reiss, Temperley and Mulberry but to name a few! So do check it out.

Speaking of Reiss, they also have an outlet website where you can find items for both men and women at a discounted cost, you can access the site here.

For special occasion wear Karen Millen has an outlet site where you can find wedding guest ready dresses too.

If you’re looking for boutique brands as well as some more established names such as Diane von Furstenburg then check out coggles.com  they have a great selection of men and women’s designer fashion plus homeware all at reduced prices.

Lastly all over the UK you can find entire outlet shopping centres that have many of the well known brands covering sportswear, beauty, women’s fashion and more including London Designer Outlet Wembley, Freeport Braintree in Essex and Bicester Village in Oxford. There are many more around the UK and Europe, you can find the full list of them here.

I hope you find this helpful!

Spring look

Although spring is finally here the weather seems to be undecided with rain, our wardrobes however shouldn’t be. I’m pleased that great fashion is affordable and you can look effortlessly chic and classy regardless of your budget. Quality is important however and if you are looking for longevity with your items its worth the investment to part with the extra pounds.

There are some great spring/summer pieces on the high street at the moment and I’ve picked up a few that I’d like to share with you.The earrings I’m wearing are from Mango. For a while I wasn’t wearing jewellery and instead stuck to studs and a watch to keep it simple but I increasingly find that jewellery adds a little something to your outfit especially if you wear your hair tied back like me.

Just to mention some of the things I have included in this blog are current season so you should be able to find them in the shops. My shirt is from h and m, if you’ve read some of my other posts you’ll know that I love a good shirt lol, I bought this because I’ve been looking for a blue stripped shirt and I like the length of this and the comfortable fit, it could double up as a nice beach shirt when teamed with denim shorts and some flip-flops.

My jeans are from Levi, I bought these in New York last year and I haven’t found this exact colour in the UK but any skinny leg jean can be worn to achieve this look. I’d also wear a wide leg jean with this too, (especially the sleeve) whether tucked or untucked this look can be worn during the day and in the evening.

My orange/red shoes are from Rupert Sanderson, I also wore a pair of white court shoes from Aldo. The Aldo pair are pretty old but you needn’t search far to find a pair of white court shoes this season for sure, Kurt Geiger have a lovely pair that are rather dressy; have a look at them here. Although these aren’t white these Whistles courts will also work with this outfit. Heeled mules are also a great look with skinny jeans, these Aldo ones in tan are cute!
