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.

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.

If you've been following my blog, you should have known that I'm a sucker of rings! But tell me, is there any woman who doesn't like rings?? So here is another article about my favourite topic. Whether you are thinking to treat yourself this Valentine with a beautiful ring or you are looking for an engagement ring, here are a few thoughts for you to consider before buying it.
Wondering how much you ought to spend on a custom-made engagement ring? Breaking out in a cold sweat just thinking about it? There’s some good news – it’s less than you probably think.
So, How Much Should You Really Spend?
You may have heard about spending a couple month’s salary on a diamond ring. Yes, that will get you a stunning custom-made ring. But, the last thing you want to do is start married life in unnecessary debt spending what you think is the average cost of engagement ring. The rule of thumb is to spend what you can afford, realistically.
Make It Meaningful
A custom-made ring is meaningful in so many ways, especially since it’s something you’ve chosen and helped to design yourself. If you’re on a tight budget, ditch the diamonds and find a more meaningful and less expensive gem and work with the jeweller to create a beautiful design.
Avoid Borrowing Money for the Ring
Keep in mind that once you are married, what’s yours becomes your partners, too. And that includes financial stress and debt. You want to give your beloved something special, but do you want to give him or her a massive bill? Unlikely.
While we know it’s pretty unreasonable these days to think you will be completely free of debt before you get married, the less debt you bring to the marriage, the better start you and your spouse will have. So, if you do plan to borrow money to finance the engagement ring, be it through a credit card of the jewellery store’s line of credit, think twice.
On the other hand, if you’re really keen to propose sooner rather than later and you just don’t have the funds, make sure you only borrow enough that you are able to pay back the amount in 12 months or less and no more.
But, How Much Should the Engagement Ring Really Cost?
This might sound like a cop out of an answer, but here’s the truth – an engagement ring should cost whatever you feel it should cost and what you can realistically afford. It really doesn’t make sense to begin your married life together owing exorbitant amounts of money, does it?
So, if you feel that you need to spend as much as humanly possible on the ring and you can afford that six-figure bling, then go for it. But, if you feel two month’s salary is more than generous and your credit card is already crying out for help, you’ll need to face facts – you can’t afford that rock. The best thing to do is adjust your expectations until your financial situation improves. Don’t fall into debt before you get married.
Start Saving for the Ring
Whatever you do decide to spend, do thorough research. Buying the ring online often saves shoppers as much as 50 percent. Also, remember that the engagement ring isn’t all about size. Learn more about the 4 C’s so you know what you can push aside and what you need to focus on to get the most bang for your buck.
