I am a big big fan of the plunge neck, whether it be bodysuits, dresses or playsuits I think they look amazing. This was a quick look put together to show that for a big night out you don’t always need to get completely galmmed up to the max by going all out in a dress but you can still looks just as dressy in a plunge bodysuit, jeans and heels. Especially whent he weather is as icy cold as it is now, putting on a dress and facing the elements isn’t the most appealing idea in the world Bodysuits always look good and there are so many different styles on the market at the moment, you are sure to find one you like. It doesn’t have to be a plunge style either, this is just something I like at the moment.

Keep It Monochrome

Monochrome never fails to date. It always looks simple but chic and you can rely on monochrome when you’re having one of those days, we’ve all had time and time again, when absolutely everything you try on looks hideous. Monochrome comes and goes in the fashion world and as a trend will continue to do so for the long foreseeable future. Items like black boots and fedoras just finish off a look so well in the winter. Boots mean that you can brave it and bare your legs but still keep toasty with warm socks and a pair of go-with-everything ankle boots. This cosy teddy coat is one of the warmest coats I’ve bought in a while. Missguided have really stepped up their coat game this year and that is where I have bought the majority of mine so far. It really does keep you super toasty and the colour goes with so much too.

This is such a simple dress but it’s just gorgeous. I seem to have gravitated towards all kinds of burgundy pieces over the last few weeks and it’s fast becoming my winter shade but it’s also a great colour for the summer too as the golden glow sets it off perfectly. I love cami style dresses for summer anyway as they are so easy to wear, comfotable as well as chic but this one has the extra added detail of a low cut v back with a frill overlay. I didn’t wear a necklace beacause I had a little flash tattoo which you can see pictured below. I felt a necklace would have looked too much and the little gold lotus tattoo was a nice alternative.

Little White Dress

Forget the LBD, a fresh summer twist on the classic wardrobe staple is the LWD….little white dress! I got this very last minute (much like my last few blog posts, I had an unplanned late online spree) before I flew off to Italy and as I mentioned in my previous posts I didn’t have many fitted/bodycon pieces so when this little gem appeared on the Missguided new in section I didn’t hesitate to rehome it lovingly in my wardrobe. It is a nice lightweight crepe material, not too tight and not too hot in the Greek heatwave that was occuring. The criss cross strap and low v neck detail makes it a little more interesting than regular straight over cami straps.

Summer Nights

Saturday night was upon us so that obviously means getting dolled up and hitting the town. I did a really last minute spree on Missguided which got delivered the day before I flew off to Italy and this dress was one of my purchases. I realised when packing that all my wardrobe consisted of was shift shapes and baggier styles, I didn’t own anything bodycon or figure hugging. I don’t like to stick to the same look all the time, it’s good to mix it up a bit so I set about finding a few Saturday night dresses I could snap up to hit the clubs in. This burgundy shade is a great colour to complement a summer golden glow and I also think it goes well with blonde hair too. I don’t have the Kardashian deriere unfortunately that this style of dress was made for but hey, we can’t have it all can we?

Holiday Style Diary: #9

Khaki and a tan goes hand in hand for summer dressing. The dark green shade really shows off even the slightest hint of colour and I think it looks good with blonde hair too. This lovely dress was wait for it…..another Missguided steal. I promise my holiday wasn’t sponsored by them but they have just been killing it lately. I don’t even want to think about how much I have spent over the last few weeks. What I love about this dress is the zips up either side, it makes it a little bit different and yes they really do unzip all the way up to the armpits. Thankfully no one was tempted to quickly whip them up and run away…phew!

Saturday night was my girl Lauren’s birthday which called for a fab outfit. I managed to bag this unreal playsuit just before my holiday before it sold out. You will notice as my posts go on that I had a bit of a running theme with my outfits. Without realising, pretty much my whole suitcase consisted of low plunge front dresses and playsuits. This created a slight dilemma in that most of my bikinis were bandeau style, oops. Not wanting to get a big white strip tan line I had to wear only the few triangle style bikinis I packed. Sometimes being a girl is far too difficult! In August I am there for longer so I can alternate between the different styles. I’ve never worn such low front pieces before but I actually really like the style and have plenty more to wear on my next trip in 3 weeks.

I just want to take a bit of time to show the appreciation for this beautiful dress. It has shot to the top of my wardrobe as my new fave dress and I am wishing the days away to be able to wear it on holiday soon. The bold blue print, the low cut v neck, the shift A-line shape; it all adds up to one hell of a beaut. I fell in love when I saw it online and don’t think I have completed an order as fast as I did with this dress.

The Carrie Shoes

Aren’t these shoes simply uh-mazing!? I cannot even begin to explain how in love with them I am. As soon as I saw them I instantly thought of Carrie Bradshaw (which is actually also what they are called online) and being a huge fan of Sex And The City/Carrie Bradshaw/heels/pink/fluffy…..I could go on and on but you get the idea. Marabou feather trim is going to be huge this season and I have already seen so many amazing bits that will be rehomed in my immaculately organised wardrobe. The heels also come in red and black if pink isn’t really your colour. I took these pics before running out the house for my friend Shakila’s birthday night out so I didn’t have time to zoom in on the shoes but I grabbed a couple of shots on my phone which you can see (above and below).

A little while ago I was browsing the Missguided website when I stumbled across this marshmallow coloured beauty. I am co-ord obsessed anyway and the colour was perfect, I couldn’t help myself and before I knew it I was typing my card information at the checkout. Kim Kardashian recently wore a few different coloured co-ords very similar to this and low and behold a few days later they were being snapped up left right and centre (for an absolute steal of the price compared to her jam packed designer-drobe)Read More »
