In light of my printed trousers article which most of you loved and gave me lots of positive feedback on, I went on the hunt to find something else I thought you guys would love just as much.

I think it’s safe to say we all love a bit of print and this is exactly one of the many things Motel prides itself on. After doing a bit of research on the brand, I found the global fashion company introduces styles unique to the market, making them renowned trendsetters. And me personally, loving print as much as I do, will not shy away from admitting that if I want a statement piece, I know where to go. I often find that when I see people on the internet wearing certain prints, instantly in my head I’m saying to myself, “aha! I know where that’s from… Motel!”

Also, going back to the overalls article, a lot of you were still reluctant to trying them out after I featured a pair in my outfit of the day. So I recommended taking baby steps before just jumping straight into something that’s totally new to you, and I know as much as every other female out there, it is damn hard to feel confident in something you’re not comfortable in. So, here is the answer… a playsuit! A very similar concept to overalls and I think the more you wear them, the more you realise just how versatile they are. And from there, who knows? You may even be daring enough to buy a pair of overalls. For those of you that do own a playsuit, then hopefully this article will just inspire you on how to style it instead.

One of the reasons I chose to do a day to night article in my playsuit, is because a lot of us do associate playsuits with going on a night out or going on holiday. But playsuits are so much more versatile than that. As you can see, my day was a very casual, comfortable, effortless look and I felt great. Then for my night, glamming it up with some jewellery, and statement bright blazer gave it that extra Pow!

I am going to do a many ways to wear article on this playsuit because personally I do think the versatility of playsuits is highly underestimated. I also think, that with most of Motel’s printed garments, the nature of the print means they can be so effortlessly styled. You just slip on the item and let the print do the talking.

There you have yet another day to night article.

And like I keep repeating, with the readers at the heart and soul of every article your opinions are genuinely important to me. So keep your comments coming and I look forward to reading them.

Lots of love,

Up until recently, the weather was gorgeous! Everyone was out sunbathing in their bikinis and just having fun in the sun. Until two nights ago, when I was woken up to the dreaded sound of thunder and heavy pattering of rain on my loft window. Which is why I decided to wear my disco pants under my dress for an outfit of the day. For those unexpected British weather days.

I know most of you are probably thinking never in a million years would I think to wear a dress with my disco pants. Well, personally, I think it works. The outfit is a very lazy Sunday but still stylish. So when you stroll out of bed tomorrow after having had a very long week and the last thing you want to do is stare at your wardrobe for hours picking what to wear, something simple with finishing touches is always a good shout. My hat and necklace were so easy to chuck on and to break down the black on black I chose to wear my white backpack for a bit of colour contrasting.

And that was today’s outfit of the day post, if you haven’t tried your disco pants with a dress, then why not give it a go? The baggy dress means it was a breezy outfit for the summer heat and my disco pants meant I was well prepared for any sudden thunder storms.

Lots of love,

Day to Night with your peplum

Before going into each outfit a little further, I just want to briefly explain the concept behind the Day to Night outfits. Although some of you may be thinking, well it’s pretty self-explanatory, the rest of us, if you’re anything like me, might be questioning what this is all about.

So what are my day to night articles? You know those tightly packed schedule days: you’ve got a full day of lectures, a full day at work, or just a full day of being busy and suddenly you remember you’ve made plans in the evening. What am I going to wear? Will I have time to get changed? Suddenly the questions are running through your mind and with us ladies always wanting to look good, even the best of panic a little.

In these articles, my aim is to show you how easy it can be to switch up your day outfit, into a perfect going out in the evening outfit.

So there you have it, without having to change any of my clothes, I transformed my day outfit into a night outfit. Taking off those pieces that made my day outfit a casual one and adding a few minor bits of glam and some stunner heels. Although, I do have to admit, my night outfit would have been perfect with a statement piece silver necklace, however, I am currently only allowing myself to buy 5 items a month (in terms of clothing) so making do with what I have, otherwise I will end up back in the position I was when I first started the blog as mentioned in my introduction. (I will soon be blogging my 5 items a month after my exams.)

Lastly, I have to say, I think a peplum top is essential in a wardrobe. I played it safe with getting a white one and this has allowed me make so many outfits with it that my possibilities are endless! Peplum’s are a great figure enhancer and well, honestly, I just can not get enough of mine. I will most definitely be doing a many way to wear article with my peplum for those of you that still need convincing and I can guarantee that it will still be popping up in my outfits of the day. And one thing I can guarantee, having one of these in your wardrobe will help save you money purely because you can create so many looks and styles with it.

Lots of love…

Once upon a time I was only confident about my footwear if I was wearing a lush pair of heels. I was so ignorant to the world of kicks! I invested in a pair of high tops not so long ago and I’ve haven’t regretted it since. Personally, I think casual trainers are great value for money.  Although you may look at the price tag originally and question whether this is going to be money well spent I’m here to assure you it is. I have matched them up with so many outfit styles and I can walk for miles never getting that feeling of just wanting to run home and kick off them off my feet.

I included my niece in one of the photos as she was adamant to join in after we spent the day together in the garden and then to the park. My outfit was perfect for just a casual day around the town with lots of walking and was able to feel confident about myself in an outfit that was quite minimalist. My jacket has quite a hipster feel about it, especially in this particular outfit and the use of my backpack was ideal for carrying Sara’s (my niece) snacks and essentials like my purse for when she begs me for an ice-cream.

By adding the accessories to my outfit,  this added a bit of glam to my casual look, and (me previously having been the biggest victim of this) I often find that we shy away from doing this in fear of being over the top on a “normal” day. Little compliments like earrings and accessories complete an outfit, embrace them.

So that was my outfit of the day, a casual day outfit with a hint of glam, I hope you liked my “ootd” article and with my readers being at the heart of every article your opinions are essential, so please leave some comments below and let me know what you think.

Lots of love,

So I am officially back at uni next week ready to put in some serious graft before my August exams. Just a heads up, throughout my exam period I will be posting pre-prepared articles as filler articles, but still with outfits to inspire your style. Fear not! The quality of the articles and the effort gone in to them is still going to be the very best I can deliver, it’s just over the exam period I won’t have time to write the articles whilst revising. But, once my exams are over I’m going to be in serious blogging mode. I plan to make my outfits of the day a lot more personal so, as well as taking photos pre going out/ pre going about my day, I plan on including photos of my outfits whilst I’m out too and hopefully putting a few friends in there where I can and telling you where their outfits are from too. Just to add that little bit more personality to the blog and spice things up a bit.

Anyway, that aside, back to today’s outfit of the day. Overalls. Yes, overalls. I love them! I wanted a pair for ages and hunted high and low to finally get the right pair to suit me. As much as I wanted overalls with short leg trousers for summer, I thought to myself, well they’re baggy and breezy so even if I get long trousered overalls I can layer them up in winter for lectures and layer them down in summer. Jobs a good ‘un. Saving money by not buying two pairs depending on the weather.

I know a lot of people are reluctant when it comes to overalls, but I don’t know why that is? Personally, I think overalls are one of those essentials in a wardrobe, so easy to wear, comfortable and can be worn stylishly. When I first bought mine, my housemates both laughed at me, but then after me trying it on, they had both been converted. So, I’m hoping I can convert you guys too. If you already have a pair and are looking for outfit inspiration, then here is just one example, and after my exams I will be posting a “many ways to wear your overalls,” so look out for that.

Hope you like today’s outfit of the day, and just to let you know, I have some really exciting things planned for after my exams in terms of the blog. But I will reveal all in good time.

Keep leaving your comments below as I love reading them, one of my readers commented asking for more casual looks, so here is another and I will be posting a few more in due course.

Lots of love…
