Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

There are lots of things I’m lusting for summer, lace-up gladiator sandals, crochet detailed dresses, contrasting candy-coloured arm candy, as well as retro-inspired denim midi’s, floaty tops with lace-up details, suede coats, lace panelled tops and floaty maxi dresses, you’ve guessed it, I’m obsessing over everything Chloé.

There is something about Chloé that just makes me swoon, want to skip out on my mortgage payment and blow my wages on designer gear. I like other designer labels, I even love some, but I don’t lust over them as much as I do Chloé. I was obsessed during Phoebe Philo’s reign and it seems my love is growing deeper now that Clare Waight Keller is at the helm, her retro-inspired bohemian spirit is infectious. I can’t be the only one wanting to be a Chloé girl, can I?

There is one small snag, OK not so small, the designer price tag associated with everything Chloé, we are taking around £1,000 for the gorgeous Chloé Drew bag, which is right at the top of my wishlist, and even a silk crepe tank is going to set you back around £400, so if like me your bank manager wouldn’t be happy if you skipped out on your bills I’ve put together some great alternatives on the highstreet – so you too can get the Chloé look for less.

4 Spring Wardrobe Updates

4 Spring Wardrobe Updates

It’s this cross-over period in the weather, it isn’t warm or cold that I start to evaluate my wardrobe, what I would like to add, what I can get rid of, and what I would love to wear if the weather just made up its mind and stayed sunny.

There are four things on my hit list at the moment: shirt dress, I’m kind of obsessed with adding them to my saved items in Asos; retro button denim skirt, as if I need another denim skirt in my wardrobe; lace flats, I know everyone has them, and I want them as well; and a bomber jacket, well you’re probably going to need to keep the chill away as knowing our weather the sun isn’t always going to have its hat on!!!

Click through for some great spring wardrobe updates for all budgets.

Floaty Skirt Waiting For Spring

Floaty Skirt Waiting For Spring

The clocks go forward at the weekend, yep we lose an hours sleep, which at the moment I could so use, but it gives me hope that the weather is going to finally cheer up and be spring-like, rather than this constant wintery weather we seem to be having here in Blighty. I know we don’t get heatwaves that often, but seeing the sun shining would be nice, we just seem to be getting this overcast, windy weather that isn’t pretty or pleasant to be outside. 

I wanted to wear this look, without the tights, with cute strappy heels, and with a thin top, sadly it wasn’t to be so I made my floaty Reiss midi skirt winter ready with some new trusty ankle boots, I know I don’t need any more but these were a sale steal from Faith, who I didn’t realise still existed, and I really don’t think you can have too many ankle boots, especially in black.

My LFW Style: Monochrome With A Pop Of Orange

My LFW Style: Monochrome With A Pop Of Orange

This is the first London Fashion Week in years where I haven’t done a full-on schedule, and surprisingly I am feeling more inspired than ever, which I think comes across in my growing confidence with my style posts, helped a lot by the fab Ashanti from AdornGirl who captured my look on the day. When I say more confident, I mean I don’t get super embarrassed every time a camera is pointed at me, I actually enjoyed myself, only taken me five years!!!
