Seasonal style!


Seasonal style you can’t go wrong with 

As the weather is beginning to change and becoming more unpredictable there comes a time when most of us begin thinking about changing our wardrobe for the season. Classic styles and cuts are a good addition to make to your clothing collection as they are versatile and timeless meaning many items will be good to keep for the future and will not need replacing as fashions change. Here are some suggestions of pieces that, once you have them, you will wonder how you ever did without. 

Trousers 

Chinos are a type of trouser, the original versions of which were 100% cotton. They are long lasting and great for cooler evenings. Their roots lie in nineteenth century British military uniforms, which is a testament to their durability. Though they come in many colours a classic khaki or brown are good tones to pick as they will go with most other colours and are a happy medium between lighter summery shades and dark winter ones. Both a casual and playful style, they are a great alternative to jeans which can easily look a little scruffy after too much wear and tear. 

Tops 

A polo-shirt is a must-have item for any casual autumn wardrobe. A staple of British fashion for many years, a good quality polo made by brands such as Fred Perry is an easy way to stay comfortable yet stylish. If your trousers are an understated colour you can opt for several polo shirts in an array of colours to give you different looks without having to purchase an entire new outfit. They are firmly entrenched in the British fashion tradition of blending sportswear with streetwear.buy here! 

Footwear 

To compliment the sportswear/streetwear blend canvas plimsolls can be a good choice. Suitable for walking and some light sport, there are styles available which also take into account contemporary trends in men’s footwear. You can go for light colours or dark colours depending on your preference and how likely you think it is that you can keep your shoes clean. If you want to look more individual consider coloured soles or laces which can complement the rest of your outfit. 

Accessories 

There is an increasing amount of attention being paid to the market of men's accessories these days, which gives you more choice when choosing accessories such as bags. It’s getting easier to find a bag that is not only practical, but also fashionable. Barrel bags are great for multiple purposes from travelling to sports and come in various colours and luxurious materials. 


Have a great weekend! byebye x

He-Shi Luminous Shimmer review!


 I wont lie to you,I'm no tan addict. I very rarely wear fake tan,and i don't own any fake tan. Until now!
My best friend is a self proclaimed tan addict,but i never saw the attraction of streaky tan that smelt like curry and made you look like a wotsit. This morning i received the  "He-Shi luminous shimmer" alongside a he-shi tanning mit. The shimmer is a wash off bronzer perfect for a night out glow. The bronzer itself has beautiful subtle glitter that makes the skin glow.

I recently had my first spray tan,and it took days to scrub off,so the fact that this is wash off is perfect.
 The 150ml tub is packed full of product,and you only need to use the tiniest bit,a little goes a long way! One of my favourite things about this product is the smell. It smells SO GOOD. Ive been trying to figure out what it smells like for the last hour,it just smells beautiful.


Another favourite thing about the Luminous Shimmer is that it can be layered up,for someone like me who would rather be white than orange its perfect to subtly enhance my colour. I can layer it lightly for a glow,or double up for a darker colour. Luminous Shimmer is packed full of hydrating organic quinoa protein, proven to provide fab skin conditioning.  The shimmer can also be used to highlight areas such as your collar bones,this is defiantly something I'll be trying! I really love this tan. Consider me converted to the church tan lovers!





 Chilling in the sunshine before i go back to the classroom tomorrow!
New York Fashion Week is around the corner though,thats something to look forward to!


Hope you have a great week/weekend
