New Year. New Outfit?

Hey there, hope everyone had a great Christmas?
Sorry for my online absence, but some much needed family time was required this week... more on that another time!

Hard to believe the New Year is nearly upon us already, I don't know about you, but I'd be doing well to tell you what day it is right now.
Where did this week go? Come to think of it, where did the year go? :-)

Anyway, in the off chance you're still deciding on your NYE outfit, I've put together a few looks below.

Whether it's a quiet meal, few drinks at home or a full-on formal affair, you can do it in style. I know which one I'll be choosing this year!

I hope you enjoy your celebrations, whatever you get up to. Do share your outfit pics if you feel like it..

Signing off for 2016...Until next time.. Happy New Year everyone!

What's your party piece?

Hey there, how is everyone getting on with the festive shopping and partying? Hope the stress levels aren't too high!

If you're still looking for ideas to style that perfect party outfit, look no further, help is at hand!

Whether it's your work office party, catching up with friends, or a family get-together, I'm sure we can come up with your ideal outfit. Maybe with a few key pieces, you can change them up to work for any last minute occasion that might come up between now and New Years.

I've put together a few ideas below, using some of the seasons current trends. Whether you prefer eye catching metallic or luxurious velvet, I'm sure you'll find something to work with.

As always, I've included both high and flat heeled footwear suggestions for each piece, so I've tried to choose garments that will suit both preferences.. always good to keep your options open, right?

Let me know which is your favourite!

The ultimate party look needs a bit of sparkle, and this bodycon dress certainly lives up to expectactions. Add a neutral shoe and a bit more bling and you're good to dance the night away.

If jeans are your wardrobe staple, a quick update with a metallic or silky cami can take your look from day to night. A pair of heels, some flats or ankle boots give you a choice of footwear here. Throw on a faux fur or velvet coat to keep you warm from door-to-door. Simple as that!

Velvet and sequins just scream party season, and with black jeans or trousers this burgundy adds richness and elegance. This is perfect for after work drinks, with a quick change from shirt to sequin top, bit of lipstick and some shimmer, if you like.

Pleated skirts are a great option and available in most stores and in almost any colour. You can't beat this metallic silver option with a bit of bling. I've paired it with a pretty off the shoulder top in black here but white could work too for aother occasion.

Hey everyone, hope you've all had a good weekend?
It seems a lot of Christmas trees went up this weekend, haven't quite got to that yet myself, still choosing colour scheme!

I have been doing a bit of research though, as I had a request for advice on plaid shirts. And no better time for a bit of plaid than the festive season, right?


So, I've been looking around to find a few different styles and colour combinations to suit all tastes. I have my eye on some of these myself, so have a peek and see what you think.
The first and obvious choice for December is red, and whether you prefer navy or black, you'll find at least one you like, I'm sure of it! I've put a few sample looks together to show a few styling options so you can get the most from your chosen shirt..

The failsafe option of jeans is an easy option and one I usually go with, but you can branch out to leggings, a denim or knit skirt for alternative day wear.

How about trying leather trousers or even some tailored trousers or pencil skirt - to bring your plaid into your work wardrobe as the holiday season approaches.

I particularly like the pleated skirt option below, one of my current obsessions! Once I find my perfect shirt, I'll be trying this one. I'll let you know how it goes :-)

And last but not least, if a plaid shirt isn't your thing, or you prefer a more neutral option, don't forget accessories can be a great way to add a trend in to your outfit..
