So Your In Your Twenties. What Now?

Hola amigo.

So you’ve entered the dreaded ‘twenties’. People tell you these are the best years of your life, yet you are still waiting for one good thing to happen.

You are fresh out of college, have a job (that you probably hate), and still have no clue how to work the washing machine.

If this sounds like you, you are not alone my love. I am still in the early twenties phase, which means I am no expert on getting my life together, but I do have some advice to give those who are in need of some guidance. So if you are just after entering a ‘mini life crisis’ then sit down and read on sister!

#1 Just breath.

large (3)

The good thing about being in your twenties is that for the majority of us, we don’t have very much responsibility. We don’t have any children to mind, no mortgage to pay off and our health is at its peak.

So take the time to relax and unwind. You do not need to have your life in order right now so don’t sweat it. You are young, enjoy it!

#2 Get in shape – while you still can.

large (2)

Ok your body will never be as adaptive to change as it is right now. You are in your babe body element. Your body is just fueling with energy and your metabolism is just waiting to burn fat. Although you may not think it, your body is a machine just waiting to be fine tuned while you are in your twenties.

So get in shape while you still can. Work your ass off because believe me you will regret it when your body is slowing down and not as limber as you would like it be.

#3 Learn to be alone.

large (4)

Learn to trust yourself and you will be a very happy woman for the rest of your life. You do not need to rely on others anymore. You don’t need to go to the bathroom in groups of 5, do it alone. Who cares? Don’t spend your time worrying that you might look like a loner, nobody cares and it’s a waste of your valuable brain energy (and god knows we don’t need to waste any more of that).

So go to the beach alone, bring a book or your ipod and chill out. Grab a coffee alone, go to dinner, go to the movies. Being independent and confident is a good thing. So learn how to do it before it’s too late!

#4 Learn how to mind yourself.

large (5)

Finally learn how to use the washing machine, learn how to make a (healthy) meal, learn how to change a tyre. These are the things that are going to keep you sane during your twenties. Nobody likes calling for help every 2 seconds, so learn how to take care of things for yourself and you will be much happier.

#5 Get rid of negative people.

large (1)

Your twenties will be jam packed with new experiences and moments that you won’t want to forget, do not have them compromised by negative people in your life. Cut them off one by one and keep a small circle of close trustworthy friends. It is much better to have a handful of amazing friends than a lot of negative, untrustworthy ones.

Keep your distance from anyone that looks like trouble, you do not need that in your life and it will make it so much easier!

#6 Travel far.

large (6)

We have entered an era where travel is at our finger tips. You can make it half way across the world in less than 24 hours so why not make the most of it? What else will you be spending your money on? Save up every last penny and make your way across the globe one place at a time.

Create memories and experiences that will last a lifetime!

So to top it all off, I know that entering your twenties can be more damaging to you than good. I know what it feels like to be still living at home and hating yourself for not having your life together. Just remember that this is the time where you really become the person who you are meant to be. Enjoy it and relax. Everything always works out in the end, and if you work hard enough, the rewards are priceless.

Thanks for reading! x

#1 Oh I’m just going to the mall for a look – Said no right minded young lady ever

max

Let your maxi skirt do all the work and keep the outfit simple. Something as easy as this is perfect for shopping and wandering around the mall. Super quick and easy to take off in the changing rooms and so comfortable!

#2 Who me? Ya I’m just heading to the beach is all.

max 1

Maxi skirts are great for the beach. Just slip it on and off and your good to go! Easy breezy crop t shirts are a good match and look cute! Grab your beach bag and maxi skirt and your good to go!

#3 Did someone say food? That late night dinner date.

max 2

The great thing about maxi skirts is that you can dress them up and down, and when you dress them up, you really dress them up. Add some gorgeous summer wedges and a laid back shrug and your good to go!

#4 That late evening summer BBQ

max 4

Converse are a great way to make the maxi skirt a casual look. I kept it clean and minimal with a large tote and floppy sun hat, just to match the laid back mood of a late night BBQ!

Well that’s it for today folks! I hope you got some ideas and inspiration from this and please comment below if you have any questions or feedback!

Get The Look – Emma Stone!

Welcome back sista.

Well, I don’t know about you, but my Twitter/Instagram/Facebook was FULL of last nights Met Ball fashionistas, and the best dressed (by a long shot) was the beautiful Emma Stone for me.

Just gorgeous!

If you haven’t seen the masterpiece of an outfit, here ya go.

met ball

Again, just gorgeous!

She got it all right, down to the make up. Just perfection in my eyes. Not too much make up, not too much accessories, just perfect! I have seen some nasty comments about Emma’s choice in outfit, saying it was too casual for the Met Ball, but in my opinion, it is flawless and if Emma wants to wear it to the Met Ball, Emma can wear it!

And you know what the best part about all of this is?

I have found an almost exact (minus the designer label price) look for us ladies at home looking to replicate this beautiful outfit!

Just a word of warning here, almost the whole outfit is from boohoo.com, I’m not like affiliated with them or anything (gosh I wish) I just really really like their stuff, and they have a HUGE selection and in almost every colour, so I couldn’t help myself!

*Quick disclaimer: I do not condone copying at all, I think everyone should be unique and put their own twist on things. This look is for people who are inspired and would like to re create the outfit for themselves!*

The skirt

I decided to start with the best piece. That gorgeous gorgeous skirt. The original was by Thakoon, and was most likely $1000 and up! I found this lovely dupe by boohoo.com for only €15!!

Say whaaaat?

met 1

boohoo.com

€15.o0

For an alternative, if side slits and maxi length really isn’t your thing, then I suggest a midi skirt. 50’s style, grease inspired swing skirts are a thing this summer, and again, good ol boohoo.com do a great one!

met 2

boohoo.com

€30.00

The crop top.

Emma’s crop top is oh-so casual, high necked and super flattering! I think I say this in every single one of my posts, but I cannot stress how flattering high neck tops are on smaller chested ladies!

No really.

If you are a small chested lady (like myself) then try a high neck next time you are shopping. It makes all the difference!

This pretty dupe is from boohoo.com (surprise,surprise) and for only €6, I mean, why not!

met 3

boohoo.com

€6.00

As an alternative, if your not really feeling the original, then go for something a little different, but still falls in the same crop top family. I found a stunning little number on, (go on have a guess) boohoo.com. It is different yet still so pretty and chic!

met 4

boohoo.com

12.00

The clutch.

I love that Emma decided to play with metallics in the shoes and clutch. The silver really bounces off the pink and brings out the colours beautifully! The clutch is quite basic and oddly enough, very hard to find! So I have settled on a cute little one I came across in Zara the other day, which I think is just fab!

This one is a little on the pricier side. But, I saw it in store and it is amazing quality and comes with a strap to convert into a shoulder bag! Really worth the money if you are going to wear it a lot!

met 5

Zara

€49.95

As for an alternative, I really couldn’t just settle on one. Almost any clutch would do, the box style clutches are of course all in at the moment, but any style would look just as nice!

The shoes.

Emma’s heels are a basic silver sandal. Pretty much in every shop now, but again, boohoo.com do a nice pair for a pretty decent price!

met 6

boohoo.com

€28.00

Again, like the clutch, there are so many different types of alternatives here. Any strappy sandal works or even flat sandals, whatever makes you happy honey, you work it!

Alternative colours.

So, I think a major part of what makes Emma’s outfit so great, is her colouring. Pink is gorgeous on her light skin tone and auburn hair, and obviously we are not all made that way, so here are some colour schemes to match other skin tones and hair colours.

Black & White : a classic for all types

Light & Dark Blue : stunning on blondes and light skins

Light & Dark Greens : gorgeous on brunettes and olive skins

Yellow & Orange/Coral : beautiful on darker skin tones and black hair

Green & Blue : colour block colours great on blondes and lighter tones

Red & Pink : fab for darker tones and dark hair

I hope I have helped! If you find this outfit as gorgeous as I do, please let me know in the comments below!

What To Wear To A Wedding!

Hello friend.

I love weddings. I love the ceremony, the after party, the food, the catching up with old family members, the food.

Did I mention the food?

All jokes asides, the one thing that I love the most about a wedding, is the dress. I just love dressing up, the preparation before and planning an outfit!

So if you are lucky enough to be attending a wedding in the near future, keep on reading for some seriously cute outfit inspiration!

The black tie wedding.

Black tie attire means exactly what it says on the tin. It’s black suits for the gentlemen and black dresses for the ladies. Short or long it really doesn’t matter, just as long as its black!

Look #1

wed

Stay ever so classy in a short sleeved LBD. I added two types of heels and clutches, the patent stilettos and envelope clutch for the more classic lady, and the strappy heels and the statement clutch for the more edgy lady. I am a minimalist when it comes to fashion, I love the less is more look, and I always believe this when it comes to events. Less is always more, which is why I only added one simple chunky boyfriend watch for a little spice!

#2

wed 2

The good thing about floor length dresses is that you tall ladies can get away with flats all night, (and you don’t have to shave your legs) or you can wear heels too, whatever tickles your fancy! Keep it elegant with simple pieces and neutral make up.

Tip: Keep it ultra glam and elegant by keeping eye make up and lips neutral and put emphasis on sculpting the face, cheekbones and collarbones. Works a charm every time!

The black tie optional wedding.

Black tie optional is again, just as it says. It’s optional. You can wear black if you like, or you can go a little more casual and less elegant if you want.

#3

wed 3

If black isnt exactly your thing, but bright colours really arn’t either, then dark navy is a good option. Plus, it looks great with fair to medium complexions, which means no fake tanning! Yay! Keep accessories light and fun to match the mood of the affair!

The white tie wedding.

The most formal of them all. I really don’t think anyone but the royal family do white tie weddings, but hey, who knows, maybe one day you will be invited to a royal wedding? 😉

#4

wed 4

Floor length dresses are mandatory at a white tie wedding, so keep it classy and chic with a plain, well fitted dress that accents your shape. Keep it simple but make your hair and make up amazing, always look well put together!

The casual beach/resort wedding.

With casual weddings, pretty much anything goes. Maxi dresses, sun dresses, you name it you can wear it!

#5

wed 5

Keep it light and fun at a beach wedding. They are casual and easy going events so that is how your mood should be! Even wear a floppy hat with some soft waves for the ultimate beach babe look!

Well ladies that is all for today’s inspiration. I hope I helped if you are attending a wedding anytime soon, or even just going to an event! Inspiration is all good at the end of the day!

5 Ways To Wear – Tulle Skirts!

Hola amigo.

Summer is upon us (thank heavens) and what better way to show off those sexy pins than a pretty little tulle skirt?

OK I think there are other ways to show off your pins, but tulle skirts are a good way to start!

For those who arnt familiar with the term ‘Tulle skirts’  they are those gorgeous, girly, poofy skirts that came out with a bang when Jessica Alba wore one in the cutest way ever.

Here see.

tullew

My favorite version of the tulle skirt is the above the knee length, and perfect for this summer too! So, enough blabbering already, lets get into it!

#1 The classic ‘Dinner date’ look

tulle

The black crop sweater and baby pink tulle skirt is the kind of classic look Jessica Alba made cool. I love the colour combos, black to make it edgy and nigh time  appropriate, and pretty pink to make it girl and fun. I added am edgy black clutch and some feminine nude heels to complete the look!

#2 The ‘Shopping and ice-cream’ look

tulle 2

I just love pastels this summer, and I can’t get enough plain white tees! These cute boxy style tee’s are everywhere lately, and so flattering on smaller chested ladies. I added some cute heels just to spice up the outfit a little and a cute pastel green clutch turned shoulder bag to pull it all together!

#3 The ‘Late night’ look

tulle 3

This is similar to the first outfit but a little more on the edgy side. Tulle skirts are adorable for nights out with the girls, pair it with a leather jacket and you are good to go!

#4 The ‘Lunch date’ look

tulle 4

I just adore this look! So girly and fun! I added a pop of colour in the heels and a gorgeous sun hat to compliment the floral crop top. Perfect!

#5 The ‘I love to shop’ look

tulle 5

Tulle skirts are a great way to tone down a more edgy look. If you love the whole burnt out tee and messy hair look, but you also like being girly and feminine, this is the perfect look for you! Add a floral clutch and some ballerina flats to compliment the look, and some sunnies just because you can!

So that’s it for my take on tulle skirts this time! I hope you enjoyed and got some inspiration from here. Please leave a comment below if you have any questions or feedback!

One Carry On – 10 Outfits!

Hola amigo.

So the summer is coming up. Which means some of us may be fortunate enough to be going on a holiday somewhere, which also means that we have to pack.

And we all know that everyone hates packing.

Nobody wants to spend more money on extra baggage and if you are like me, you will try and squeeze everything into your carry on suitcase, which is all good if you are not an over packer.

But I am.

I over pack way too much! So, I have come up with a little inspiration to help you fellow over-packers too. ❤

The carry on.

carry

One suitcase.

8 items.

1 bikini.

All you need for a 10 day holiday in the sun. 🙂

The outfits.

out 4 out 5

out 7 out 3

out 2 out 1

out 0 out 10

So there you go! It’s that simple to pack a holiday into a carry on suitcase! Just pick items that mix and match well and presto, you are a packing genius!

I hope you got some inspiration from this, please let me know in the comments below if you have any feedback or questions!

5 Ways To Wear – White Chucks This Summer!

Hi there friend.

So as the sun is currently beaming in on top of me as I type this, I am feeling very summery, and what better way to kick off the summer than with some fashion inspiration?

Now that’s my idea of fun.

The title says it all really, no need for an explanation here. So without further a due, here are my top 5 ways to wear your white chucks this summer!

#1 Fun in the sun

conve

I just love denim cut off shorts in the summer. They go with – literally – everything. But in the spirit of the ‘crop top’ phase, I have paired some cute denims with a gorgeous pretty crop top. This dainty look is all in  and they are not hard to find, I threw in a leather satchel to make the look more fun and topped it all off with some retro cat eye sunnies.

Perfect!

#2 Starbucks with the gals

convee

Chucks are perfect for a lazy, casual outfit and distressed jeans are all in this season like it’s nobodies business! Wear a plaid shirt open for a comfy look. I put in a gold watch to add variety, a large shoulder bag for an added boho feel and some big ass sunnies, because who doesn’t love big black sunnies?

#3 Summer BBQ

conver

Simple, classic and comfortable. You would be surprised how cute chucks look with a summer dress. Add a large sun hat and work some flowy wavy hair for a natural ‘I woke up like this’ look.

#4 Beach babe for life

convv

If your hitting the beach this summer, be sure to pack plenty of colour! Chucks are great for neutralizing a crazy coloured outfit, which is why I paired this neon coral skater skirt with a pretty striped crop top. Throw your fav bikini on underneath and grab your beach bag and your ready to go!

#5 Road trip anyone?

convwe

Simple outfits are a big trend this year. Basic colours paired with brighter, more extravagant pieces are eye catching and on trend! Pair high waisted jeans with a simple crop top and your chucks with bright sunnies and a pastel satchel.

Gorgeous!

So that is all I have this time! Please be sure to leave a comment below or email if you have any queries!
