Pyjama style

Never thought I'd wear pyjama tops other than bedtime, but I probably thought the same about slip tops and dresses at the time too. The sleepwear trend was a favourite among some designers this Spring/Summer, we even saw the night robe making an appearance too!

I find the v-neck style on the pyjama tops very flattering, despite the relaxed fit it can still look quite sexy and perfect for an evening out. For a casual look pair with jeans and flats and if you're feeling very on trend then try the whole pyjama look by pairing with loose wide leg trousers. There is no particular way to wear these tops, wear them how you would wear shirts.

Here are a few from the high street:

1. Lipsy £16
2. Miss Selfridge £32
3. Topshop £32
4. River Island £38
5. Topshop £29

Alternatively, you could always buy actual pyjamas and wear them as tops and when you've worn them out, wear them to bed. I love these from Miss Guided. (Pink £28, Nude £28)

Thanks for reading and happy shopping.

One of my favourite items to wear for an evening out is a shirt, it can be as relaxed as you want it to be or as sexy or smart as you want it to be. It' s a great item for mums breastfeeding too, easy all round. Whether it be a plain white shirt, button down stripe shirt or a printed shirt it can be worn season after season.

I wear most of my shirts with jeans (no surprise there then), below are a few ways you can wear your shirt according to the occasion (All images from Pinterest).

For a casual way to dress most shirts, roll the sleeves up or leave the shirt untucked. Pair with jeans, casual jackets or trainers.

If you want to dress your shirt up for an evening, you could unbutton some of the buttons, add accessories or even show a little lace underneath. Tuck shirt in completely or let out loosely.

Any shirt can be smartened up by a pair of smart trousers or skirt.

Shirts are easy layering pieces, wear under jumpers and over t-shirts. Try layering under a dress or over a jumper for something different.

Wear it with a twist:
Wear back to front, off the shoulder, tied up or knotted up. These are the new fresh ways to wear a shirt, following on from last year.

Shirt Dress:
Same as a shirt but longer. A longer shirt can be turned into a shirt dress too, tie a belt around it or leave loose, also great as a beach cover-up.

Make more use out of your shirts this Spring, hope the above inspiration helped a little. I've picked a few of my favourites from the high street:

1. Religion £65
2. Topshop £32
3. Mango £17.99
4. H&M £24.99
5. Topshop £34
6. Zara £25.99

A few wardrobe essentials below: I love the back detail on this Zara stripe shirt, I would wear it in the evening with heels but easily works well for a daytime look too. Then at the bottom is an ASOS denim shirt and an essential H&M white shirt, both ideal for layering and everyday wear.

Happy Shopping!

Yellow SS17

Helloooo sunshine! Ok maybe not in the UK but it can be in your wardrobe. Yellow was a surprising colour that was everywhere on the runway, I for one love that this Spring/Summer there was something a little different to the usually pink or stripes or florals on the catwalk. It's a bright colour, may not be to everyone's taste but there is a shade for you, whether it be a mustard or lemon colour I love them all. It definitely makes an outfit pop and straight away reminds me of Spring and daffodils. (Street style images below from Pinterest)

Most of us, including me, find ourselves buying the same neutral colours when shopping and stick to our comfort zone. When we do see colour, we shy away from it or stand there debating whether or not it will go with the rest of your wardrobe or if we will ever wear it. I find most bright colours like red and yellow for example go with everything and it's not that hard to wear at all.

A few pieces I love from the high street:

1. Topshop coat £65
2. Topman hoodie £25
3. Zara dress £25.99
4. Mango purse £6.99
5. NewLook skirt £19.99
6. H&M shoes £14.99

If you're not into the bright yellows and want something less in your face, how about a lighter yellow colour, these t-shirts are perfect for a subtle colour in your wardrobe. (Left: ASOS £40, Right: NEXT £18)

Or how about these trousers from New Look, perfect for mixing and matching and will look great even in Winter. 
New Look £27.99

Yellow goes well with neutral tones, especially khaki, black, grey and white, but mixes well with blue denim too. If you're feeling brave, try colour blocking, pair the yellow with a bright red or blue?

Thank you for reading and here's to sunny days ahead.
