Spring is just around the corner and that means we need to put away those thick or chunky winter clothes and start to sharpen our Spring's wardrobe. This is the ideal time to evaluate what would you like to retain or eliminate from your wardrobe or do you need to refill your closet to create Spring capsule wardrobe. You may find very difficult or irritation along the way, but remember to keep an open, playful attitude and enjoy because creating spring wardrobe is all about experimenting and learning about yourself.
So, I've slowly started getting my spring wardrobe ready with Shein.co.uk, they have everything you need to stay on top of the trend this spring without breaking your bank. Here are two beautiful pieces from them which I'm going to wear non-stop this Spring, direct links given below and see how I style them.
Here are a few tips to help you get your Spring wardrobe ready:
Start to analyse going through your clothes one by one and create into three groups:
Keep: Clothes you are 100% sure to keep in your closet. For instance, those transitional pieces and clothes having plenty of life and you absolutely love wearing them. When you go through your fall and winter wardrobe, make sure you washed them(whether it's machine washed, hand-washed or dry cleaned) before you keep them away for the next winter.
Remove: Items you are ready to throw away, because they are worn out, you never worn them or worn only once in a year. Think of reselling if they are in good condition or give to a charity.
Alterations: Items that are flattering to you but they needed to be altered, eg. tailoring or dry cleaning.
Make a List: After you've done all the above tips, make a list of Spring essential pieces that are missing or need to be refilled. Head over to Shein.co.uk to check out some great deals for Spring's wardrobe.
Last but not the least, like I've mentioned above, creating your spring wardrobe ready doesn't need to break the bank; don't forget that it’s always better to love more and have less.
I'm sure you'll feel liberated once you have done! Following this process and being organized will help you bring clarity to your wardrobe and save you money.

Matchy-matchy two pieces are what the sartorial world called co-ords today. Recently, they have become the best trope in fashion. Although they were designed to be dressed together, they work equally great apart, more versatile than your cocktail dress or office suit and more practical than jumpsuits. Either you wear co-ords separately or matchy-matchy, they can be worn in many different looks and I'm just loving the co-ords trends. But how do we avoid looking like we have just stepped out from bed in pyjamas?? Because wearing matching sets can be quite tricky at times if you don't pick up the right styles according to you body. So, here are some style tips for nailing this season co-ords trend. Read below:
WHAT I'M WEARING: I'm wearing zara's co-ords, you can find here -- Asymmetric Jacquard Skirt & Striped Jacquard Sweater and Kurt Geiger's bag: SAFF HORIZ LONDON TOTE, White Sock Boots from HM (Sold Out) given some alternatives down below. Yellow jacket from Vintage Store (find alternatives below).
Here are some pretty co-ords I'm eyeing for Spring.
My other favourite picks from Zara: Linen Skirt with Bow Detail & Stripe Linen Top and from ASOS Co ord Knitted Skirt
How to Style Co-ords or Matching Sets?
Chose the Right Size: Just because you are size 8, don't simply pick up the sets that the store has displayed together. Experiment with sizes. Small size may fit you perfectly on top but size medium or x-small may fit better in bottoms depending on your body shape. Usually the co-ords can be purchased separately, so make sure you choose the perfect fit for both top and bottom.
Look for Versatility: Choose a style, colour and print carefully, so that they can be mixed and matched with your wardrobe. If the co-ords only work as matchy-matchy set, you may not get the full benefits of this trend. When buying a set, think how you would style them on their own, so it's essential to love both pieces.
Pick a Flattering Shape & Cut: Different styles have been designed to enhance or conceal where required to flatter one's shape. So, ensure to chose the cut and style you would be comfortable and compliments your personality. For instance, If you have a big bust, avoid tops with ruffles and frills because they will make you look bigger by giving extra volume to the bust area. A tailored jacket is a great idea for women with narrow shoulders to add some structure to your frame.
Here are some alternative pieces to help you create this look!

A knit dress or sweater dress is one of the most comfiest dress I've ever own during the winter. It is versatile, cosy and relaxed, which can be easily shifted from winter to spring, and from day to night. We usually label a knit dress or a sweater dress with a casual outfit but just by changing your footwear and accessories, you can create numbers of outfits and it is a great piece for layering during winter or in chilly spring days.
If it is a fitted style, keep things simple by wearing it alone with a pair of boots or heels, and off course with the right accessories. You may like to wear with tights or leggings if it is a loose sweater dress, however it also looks chic wearing on its own with the trainers or sneakers. Don't be afraid to put a belt on your sweater dress, because it can accentuate your beautiful curves and create a more feminine look. Here is how I style my favourite knit dress which I got from Vila Clothes, which was sold out immediately, but I've provided similar pieces of the dress and other items of this look below to help you create this look if you like it.

On my last post, I've also share outfit ideas and what to do for Ladies bonding Day, make sure you check it out HERE if you haven't read it yet. Happy Weekend Folks!!
We all know that February is the month of Love and I'm sure most of you have fully planed for the Valentine's day. But have you guys thought of what you'll do and wear on Galentine's day?? Some people say that Galentine's day should be National Holiday, then again I thought do we really require a special day to enjoy or celebrate our besties/girlfriends bonding time? This is something we should do on a regular basis isn't it? So, if you are kind of last-minute party planner like me, here are a few quick ideas to do and what to wear on Galantine's day. However, like I said, Galentine's day can be all year round so these ideas is not just for 13th February, it can be anytime you need that Ladies/besties bonding time, whether you are married, single, engaged or dating currently.
A Sleepover or Big Girl Slumber Party:
I'm sure you agree with me if I say we ladies are never too grownup for a slumber party, but now off-course little different than your teenage time sleepover party, a big-girl version of old fashioned sleepover. Think of loud 80s/90s music with wine or pitchers of refreshing margaritas blended, stay up all night gossiping, order pizza and spend a giggly night of chick flicks. A slumber party without a cute PJs is no fun, so make sure you get a great PJs and a weird eye mask (who cares even if you'll not sleep, right?). Thanks to today's trend, you can even wear out your pyjamas with heels, so you don't need different outfit, in case you want to hit the club in the middle of the night.
Why not pamper yourself this Galentine's day ? Take a girls trip to a beautiful country side spa and indulge in relaxing beauty treatments like massage, facials, manicure & pedicure and so on. Or, you can even organise a Home-spa-day and offer each other manicures or makeovers with a bottle of champagne. What to Wear? Slip into something chic yet cozy outfit like ruffle jumper, midi skirt and trainers. If you are in the warmer place, you may go for an off shoulder ruffle dress with fuzzy slides. However, you may spend the day mostly in your inner wears and robe, so ensure that your bra and undies are comfy and sexy with lace materials and spandex.
Girls' Night Out:
Step out with your girls in Destiny Girls style. There is nothing really like letting loose with your besties you trust. Laugh till you cry or until your cheeks hurt and dance your heart out, even better if you stick to No-Boy-rule, and to make that night the most unforgettable time, you've got to dress like an "Awesome Me". Opt for an outfit that is comfortable to last through the night smiling and dancing, something fierce that empowers you and suits your personality. My Pick: Ignore the usual club all black outfit and go for something sharp yet sweet alluring blush blazer suit, statement earrings and killer heels, or a trendy statement top with a pair of jeans.
Go for shopping with your besties this Galentine's day. Trust me it is one of the best ideas to celebrate Girlfriends time. Whether you go for window shopping or doing shopping spree, make sure you are ready to try on many outfits. Enjoy your time complimenting one another and explore the new trends on stores.
What I'd Wear? I would go for something comfortable and easy to change your clothes, like a bodysuit with a frilled skirt or button-up skirt and ankle boots, so that you don't have to get undressed completely every time you want to try clothes on. You may complete the look with your favourite coat depending on the weather.
These are just a few ideas to do and outfit ideas to consider if you are not sure what to wear and do on Galentine's day. You don't have to follow strictly to the above mentioned ideas. All you need, is to take ideas wherever you can and making your own. Galentine's day is all about spending your time with your girlfriends to the fullest, so think something fun, relaxing and wear bright, happy outfits. If you cannot make it this time, don't worry, start planning for the next one, like I've mentioned before we don't need a special day to celebrate ladies bonding time! That means we can celebrate whenever we want!!
