My Style Post Evolution

My Style Post Evolution

This year I hope you’ve notice a change in my style posts, it was one of my goals for 2015 to make this section feel more editorial, glossy, and inspirational – so I’ve been trying new things, finding great locations, as well as try and inject my personality over into the pictures, instead of being a nervous wreck. I have to be honest it is something I still find difficult, I still get nervous posing, I’m over critical in editing, lots of photos don’t make the cut, and I still need a confidence boost to press publish so you guys can see. 

I mention on Instagram that my style posts have been on a journey this year, and thank you all for your lovely comments, it really has made me realised that I am on the right track. I think it has helped that I am doing them more regularly, something that you guys asked for and I hope that you’re enjoying seeing more of my style, it really has helped me step away from wearing jeans every day. I actually think it has been a while since jeans were the focus of a style post, and I’m quite proud that I keep pushing myself to try something new.

When Great Hair Makes An Outfit

When Great Hair Makes An Outfit

There is something about having great hair that not only gives you a confidence boost but it makes an average outfit look stunning. Without the big curl-bomb hair I’m not even sure I would have featured this denim skirt, black shirt, bomber jacket look, it’s a little casual, but add the big hair, sunshine and the Piccadilly location and it makes for a great outfit post, which really is all because of the great hair day.

It’s weird how much great hair can change my mood, my confidence, and even my general outlook, I don’t know about you but it really does make me happier, and I instantly feel prettier, oh how vain I am. But hey don’t we all need a little boost from time-to-time!!!

My Style: Shades Of Grey

My Style: Shades Of Grey

I’ve spoken about my hunt for the perfect grey winter coat previously, as this year I’m trying to just invest in classic pieces rather than trends, I had all but given up hope when I spied this beauty in the Gap sale, only one left, in my size, was down from £99.99 to £39.99 with another 40 percent off, so for £23.99 I picked up the best bargain I have found in a while, and I’m in love with it.

My Style: Glorious Goodwood & The Perfect Summer Maxi

Jim-Goodwood-my-style-2

Weekends are precious, I love spending time with my fiancé as well as my close friends, and I love it even more when it is filled with gorgeous sunshine, great food and lots of laughs. Last weekend we went to visit Jim & Sarah, two of our closest friends, to celebrate Jim’s birthday as well as get giddy about the wedding as they are both coming with us to New York and with less than 100 days to go I am pretty excited.

I always love going down to see them both in Chichester, it is always fun and relaxing, and this weekend was made even more perfect with a visit to Goodwood. Not only can you watch planes taking off and cars whizzing around the track, but you can also enjoy them both while eating brunch at the Aero Club Café. The sunshine didn’t hurt either, I think I could have sat outside watching all the planes taking off, landing and doing tricks all day. I really do love discovering secret brunch spots and I can’t wait to go back.

After brunch we wandered around the rest of Goodwood, checking out the motor circuit, watching some drifting, and I couldn’t help but snap away at the lovely retro touches around the grounds including the racing green telephone box and vintage cars. It also made the perfect spot to showcase my new maxi dress from Gap, which is not only flattering but super comfortable. I bought this beauty for my honeymoon but I couldn’t resist giving it a test drive as we are having such glorious weather at the moment.

I have trouble finding flattering maxi dresses, they are either sack-like or too tight, what I love about this Gap beauty is that the elasticised waist creates a blousy top look that really does nip in the silhouette of the dress. Plus I also love anything that I can just throw on, will work with flats, heels and trainers, and is comfortable to wander around in the sunshine.

Have you discovered your perfect summer maxi dress?
