CASUAL CHIC IN BLUE-BLACK + HOW TO GET INSTANT LONG LEGS

 

Before I hit the streets of Paris in my sneakers and scarf, this was what I wore to breakfast + did quick photos…..a pair of fitted skinny denim, high neck blouse / turtle neck and my trusted long coat which I have been wearing non-stop. To finish the look, I wore some ankle boots which I first wore in this look HERE and finished the look with my mini orange bag to add a pop of colour to my blue-black ensemble.  And voila, that is my outfit of the day. If I do say so myself, it is an effortlessly casual but chic look.

 

COFFEE RUN & DIFFERENT WAYS TO STYLE THE BOMBER JACKET

 

I bought this “bomber jacket” about 7 years ago. Yeah, you heard me right….7 years ago! On the day I got it, I got a black version too. I have worn the black version more than I have worn this one and that is why it looks almost like new. I had it stored away for some reason but decided to bring it out on this day for coffee run……

This look is a typical errand look book and the kind I spot when I do things like school run, drive the boys to places like football, basketball and any of their activities really. Another casual chic school run look book can be found HERE

 

WORK STYLE IN BLACK-BROWN & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

Black and brown are not 2 colours a lot of people mix together because both hues are dark. However in the Autumn and Winter, they are 2 of the most popular colours you see around when it comes to clothes. You see them in form of coats or jackets, and so many other accessories. I went to the shops yesterday and I saw so many blacks and browns(tan, coffee, dark brown) on the shop displays and they look so fine……..

Today, on Motivation, Should I give up on my set goals now?

 

OVERALL ::: CROPPED PALAZZO & LONG DUSTER

 

I have come to terms that regular length trousers will never be long enough on me no matter how generous they are in length. It is part of my vision to be able to create a line of super long trousers / pants collection in the future for tall women like myself. At least trousers long enough for women with long legs.

Today’s look is another example of a not long enough trousers but “men”, I had to rock it like that 🙂 But seriously, do you have length problems with trousers?

 

THE GOOD DENIM ::: 3 WAYS TO STYLE ONE DENIM

 

One of the Kardashian sisters, Khloe, is trending right now because of her new denim line called the “Good American”. However, after reading the reviews of the denims, I concluded they are good BUT the price is ridiculously high like her fans says. The price of the denim starts at $197. Expensive right?

You may not be able to buy the Good American denim or jeans because they are so expensive but you can wear your high street ones stylishly. This is exactly what I am going to be sharing with you in this post.

Since it is Autumn, all my looks today are Autumn perfect and ones you can take from day to night. Now let’s have a look at them…….

 

WORK MODE, MUMMY MODE & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

 

As a mum myself, I know how hard it can be to joggle work, family life and everything in between. Sometimes, you get back from work and then it’s time to bring Junior to football or Sarah to ballet or dancing. Does that sound familiar?

On today’s post, I bring you a quick styling on how to go from work mode to mummy mode without changing clothes. Let’s do this. How are you by the way?

 

ALEXA CHUNG FOR M&S AND MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

I have followed Alexa Chung’s career for a while. She is one of those underdog in the fashion world. Alexa is a British Fashion Model, Television presenter and Contributing Editor at British Vogue. When I heard of her collaboration with M&S (Marks & Spencer), I was curious to see what she designed in collaboration with them.

As for M&S, a lot of people think of them as a not so fashion forward brand when it comes to clothing. However, this days, they are “uping” their game and this is why they now do collaboration with modern women of influence to bring modern and on trend vibe to their collection. By the way, if you look well in M&S, you will find great and fashionable items there. And they do great lingerie too.

 

BE PATIENT ::: HOW TO DRESS UP A CASUAL LOOK

 

Today, it’s all about a dressed up denim look but first of all, I need to share some good news with you. Are you ready for it?

I am happy to announce that my dear friend whom I dedicated this pregnancy look HERE to is now a brand new mum. I am actually with her in London as I write this post.  Mum and baby are fine. I am a happy and proud aunty and I am thankful for such a time as this. How are you doing yourself?

 

AUGUST

Welcome my beautiful friends to Monday and to a brand new month; the month of August!

I have a feeling this month is going to be an amazingly distinguished and a great one, I can feel it. But how? it is because as a man(woman) thinks so he(she) is. I have shared with you before to always stay positive no matter what. Now say this after me; this month is going to be a great and exalted one for me, amen! YES, we have just claimed all the goodness in the month.

 

By the way, if you check the dictionary, a few of the words used to describe August is distinguished, exalted, Magnificent, Lordly, Kingly etc. So August is Special!
