It’s the perfect time to shop for a few new summer pieces with all of the great sales taking place right now. If you often overlook the trendier styles, this is a great opportunity to add something a little different to your wardrobe. At up to 70% off, Topshop has some great looks available. Here I have put together a few of my favorites. Happy shopping!
Although it is Sunday, I am wishing it was/treating the day like it is Friday. The past week has flown by and the weekend is almost over yet again (where does time go?). I do however, always find time to chill and glance through my favorite boards on Pinterest. Last week several Pins captured my eye with looks totally covet worthy. Great denim. Gorgeous shoes. The perfect handbags. Minimal looks with maximum fashion appeal. Which are your favorites? Thank you for commenting!
Face plant. I decided that my brand new white Citizens of Humanity jeans would be perfect for my next post. Yes, today’s post was to be an outfit post, but….after a rain storm while walking in my wedges to a carefully selected backdrop I slipped and the rest is history. I had to laugh or I would cry so, I decided to shift posts and share some photos from a recent boat trip I took with visitors. Not a rain cloud in sight. The day was perfect and the sea was warm and inviting. I love this escape and the return sail after a day of feeding the stingrays, snorkelling and swimming is totally relaxing. Thank you so much for your comments!
I am so glad that Friday has arrived! Pinterest always inspires me to try new things, consider new looks and daydream. My favorites this week encompass a variety of things I adore. On the fashion side, Twiggy a fashion icon with amazing style, cool accessories, a sweet pair of Chanel espadrilles and great street style. As Paris is one of my absolute favorite places to visit, the thought of lounging around my own Parisienne styled balcony came to mind. Finally, a simply beautiful makeup and hairstyle look on Bella Thorne. This weekend I am planning to chill and tick a few things off my ever-growing to-do/wish/get organised (Pinterest motivated) list. Whatever your plans may be, I wish you a great weekend!
Topshop is one of my favorite places to shop in store and online. With so many fashionable pieces to choose from it is definitely a great source for some great style. I have been eying several pieces recently and wanted to share them with you. White seems to be taking center stage and I love it! A simple textured skort, perfect with a blazer, tee or blouse. A sweet gathered midi skirt perfect with a crop top or knit for cooler weather (who says no white after Labour Day!). These cute textured cigarette trousers will be perfect for work with heels or a casual look with flats or my Birks. Topshop always comes through with great bags and the black tote I chose ticks all the boxes for me. When I think of choosing pieces for work, skirts are the most versatile option and a two piece skirt and blazer in a boucle texture works brilliantly together or as separate pieces for mixing and matching. Last but most certainly not least a very cool pair of sandals in the perfect hue of blue. These will go great with my jeans, dress, pants, dressy shorts or a skirt. Hope my choices give you a few style ideas of your own.
Oh July with your highs and lows, incredibly hot steamy weather and sweet sunshine, you flew by and August arrived far too quickly for my liking. I tried to capture as many fleeting moments of my month via Instagram as I could, but as I am still relatively shy when sharing my pics in this venue (yes, even after 53 weeks), I would definitely love some feedback. What do you like to see, travel, interior decor, foodie pics, fashion, random selfies? Please leave your Instagram name so I can drop by, and thank you for your comments!
I have been on a mini staycation this past week enjoying some much needed down time, spending time at the beach and just relaxing. Pinning can provide a distraction from the day-to-day as well, and my love affair with Pinterest continued this week with several pins capturing my interest. Stripes, whites, cute denim and of course Alexa’s style all provide some amazing fashion inspiration. With so many great looks it was hard to choose only seven, but these were my absolute favorites. Have a wonderful weekend!
When it comes to fashion and beauty I tend to be guided by my favorite magazines, chatting with friends and sales clerks in my favorite shops or basically going with my gut instinct. This past weekend I had lunch with a lovely friend of mine. Her look is always effortless and this time she was wearing H&M harem pants. The first thing she commented on was how inexpensive they were. All I could think was how stylish they looked. In my favorite shop on island I overheard the manager telling her sales clerks to decide who would wear the “boho style outfit” to promote the new stock that day. I was already clutching a bohemian style dress (in the sales clerks size no less) and was heading for the change room. Whether it is a splurge of the moment purchase or a calculated buy from a previously compiled list, it is always our choice in the end. Here is my hot list for July (new monthly post) featuring looks I am loving and beauty products trending that I like. What’s on your hot list right now? Thank you so much for your comments!
1. the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.
When I first started blogging, my mind raced in a thousand different directions. The posts came easy and I looked for ideas in every aspect of my day-to-day. When I think of inspiration, my mind turns to family and friends who have a positive influence on my life, provide encouragement and support me though thick and thin. I can also spend ages in my favorite bookstores pouring over cookbooks, travel books, fashion, beauty, health and fitness. At my monthly hair appointment all of the latest fashion mags from the UK not readily available to me otherwise, provide a source of inspiration for my blog as well.
Creating an inspiration board with reminders of those things that inspire is a great way to encourage yourself on a daily basis. For me my board consists of some very personal things, a few magazine tear sheets (switched up once in awhile), inspirational quotes, and a post card from Anne Frank House that reminds me to be grateful for all I have in life. One photo in particular of a very special couple near and dear to my heart provides me with a major source if inspiration. Their daughter is currently on a journey of her own (please check out her blog here http://murphyslawfilm.net/).
What inspires you? Thank you so much for your comments!
With the warm season in full swing, thoughts turn to staying cool, spending more time on the beach and less is more fashion. I am loving the bohemian vibe and relaxed feel of maxi dresses, kimonos, backless tees and lariat necklaces. When it comes to work I am all over the cute shift dress look. These are a few of the pieces I have been eyeing from some of my favorite shops. Enjoy your weekend!
