Sunday Shacket Feels

Fashion

The Shacket – a clothing hybrid of when shirt meets jacket. A shacket is a great autumnal, transitional piece for those days where the weather is a bit warmer. I also think they are a great alternative to a denim jacket and are super versatile as it pairs well with items such as jeans and midi skirts. This shacket in particular is the epitome of utilitarian urban chic and injects a little edge into the outfit. I especially love the boxy silhouette as well as the dropped shoulders and raw hem detail along its bottom.

Team a shacket with an all black outfit and some chunky trainers and you cant go wrong! You have a simple yet stylish daytime ensemble.

Polka Dots & Denim

Fashion

Polka dots are one of those prints that are very versatile and easy to wear; they are classic and timeless so they don’t go out of fashion and can be worn all year round. The print pairs well with denim and is a tasteful way to style up a simple pair of jeans.

Backless mules are great transitional shoes from sandal weather and offer semi-coverage which means they are fab to wear on those days that aren’t quite so cold during A/W.

Hair accessories can just add that extra bit of chic to an outfit so here, I’ve opted for a black, velvet knot headband to pull the look together.

Monochrome 🖤⚪️🖤

Fashion

It’s leather trouser season again and I couldn’t be happier about it; they’re my favourite A/W staple piece as they are so versatile and can dress up any day-time outfit. For today’s get-up, I’ve combined coated, leather look jeans with a white blazer and plain black tee for a simple yet stylish monochromatic combo. I can’t wait to put more outfits together with these jeans during the colder months, especially with jumpers and more blazers. Leather seems to come back every A/W so I’d definitely recommend investing in a pair of faux leather- look trousers to keep up to date with the trend.

Comfy Neutrals

Fashion

Comfort is key when it comes to putting together your outfit for the day. If you’re looking for something easy and comfortable to wear, joggers are the perfect staple item for a casual outfit.

For a luxe yet relaxed style, I teamed joggers with a slinky, disco fabric zip up top and chunky trainers. The neutral tones of nude and grey in the outfit are contrasting yet balance out each other well and help the ensemble appear more effortless.

Blazer + Slip Skirt Combo

Fashion

An oversized blazer and a satin slip skirt combination is a super stylish day time look. Here, I’ve put together an almost all black outfit with a pop of snake print as a contrasting pattern to make the skirt stand out more. The structure and tailoring of the blazer complements the sleekness and midi length of the skirt as they balance each other out, adding chic and sophistication to the outfit.

A pair of trainers with this ensemble gives it a more cool and casual vibe. Handheld, structured bags are a continuing accessory trend into A/W ’19 so I paired this black and gold one to match the colours to the rest of the outfit and the hardware on the belt and the jewellery.

Beige on Beige

Fashion

For this look, I paired an oversized slogan t-shirt with a beige body-con midi skirt. The ruching on the skirt provides a flattering fit and it has incredible stretchiness, making it very comfortable to wear. The trench coat is a great way to chic this outfit up and is fab to wear for the cooler days as it’s lightweight yet just enough to keep you warm.

On my feet, I’m wearing the best Balenciaga dupes I’ve found yet; they’re not as chunky although they’re pretty close. I find that they are super comfortable and the perfect stylish trainer. The colour of these shoes also ties in wonderfully with the rest of the outfit, fitting in perfectly with the beige theme.

4 Autumn Trends You Can Wear Right Now

Fashion

The sun has been shining and temperatures are still high but Autumn is only round the corner and we draw closer and closer to the end of summer. As September approaches, it’s safe to say it’s fine to delve in and start exploring the A/W fashion trends of 2019. Here are just a few styles that are wearable now, which you can incorporate into your wardrobe to carry you through this season.

1. Puffy Shoulders

Statement sleeves that particularly focus on shoulder detail have been a popular choice throughout the summer, especially playing a big part in the ‘milkmaid’ trend. Thankfully, this silhouette is sticking around and is set to continue into A/W. Exaggerated and emphasized, the puffy shoulder look provides elements of femininity and structure to an outfit and also happens to be very flattering on the arms.

2. Beige

One of the ‘safer’ trends of A/W ’19 and probably one of the easiest to style is Beige. Neutral tones are very wearable and effortless and this particular shade of brown is a classic. In terms of wearing this colour in our current hot weather situation, there are many pieces that would work including linen trousers, a midi dress or a boilersuit. For the cooler days, a trench coat is a considerable investment into this trend as it is a versatile, transitional item that would become a staple in your wardrobe.

3. Neon Flashes

Fluorescent colours have been huge throughout Summer and they still will be this season to help brighten up your outfits during the darker months. Pair neon green with neutrals and deep browns or luminous yellow with black denim for a contrasting colour palette.

4. Dark Florals

Floral is usually associated with Spring and Summer, displayed on light and pale bases however, Autumn is all about the blossoming print being on dark and deep toned backgrounds. This is such a beautiful and romantic print and is a pattern that looks amazing worn day or night. Dark Floral dresses in particular are set to be a major fashion piece during the cooler months, so while the weather is warm, it’s the perfect opportunity to get ahead of the game and intergrate this trend into your wardrobe now.

Festival Makeup Collab with AllThingsAllatt: Colourful x Grungy

Beauty, Cruelty free beauty, cruelty free makeup

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re all having a lovely bank holiday.

I’m v excited for today’s post as this is my second collaboration with yet another fab blogger and this time it’s with allthingsallatt! (Instagram: @allthingsallatt) I love Rebecca’s content, she does great makeup posts and brill reviews on products so go check out her blog and her take on this collab here.

So as festival season is approaching, we thought it would be a good idea to do a makeup look especially for it. Rebecca has already done a few on her blog but this was my first time doing one this year. We decided to do something a bit different by creating contrasting looks; mine is colourful and vibrant whereas Rebecca’s is grungy and dark. Two very opposite styles of festival makeup for you guys and gals to enjoy!

Eyes

As this was such a vibrant look, I of course used the best palette for colour which is the Morphe 35B Colour Blast palette. I did a halo style of eyeshadow to help give the appearance of rounder, bigger eyes and to define the look more. In the middle of the halo, I kept it white and applied a Stargazer Glitter Eyeliner which is has beautiful multicolour flecks in the product. On top of that, I put a white glitter from EBay which stuck to the Stargazer glitter well. To add even more glitter to the eyes, I used the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Distortion and Grind on top of my black NYX Matte Liquid Eyeliner.

Transition – Sunshine

Crease – Smoothie, Bikini & Fuchsia

Outer Corner/ Inner Corner towards halo – Purplish, Puffs

Lid (halo) – Chalk

Inner Corner – Lemonade

Bottom Lash Line – Apple Cider & Deep Dive

Mascara: Kiko Luxurious Lashes Waterproof Mascara

False Eyelashes: Morphe Melrose Ave Lashes

Pencil Eyeliner: Wet n Wild Colour Icon Kohl Eyeliner in You’re Always White!

Other Products I’m Wearing

Face

Festival makeup just wouldn’t be complete without wearing some glitter on the face now would it? I used a Chunky Silver Mixed Glitter Pot from eBay which has a mix of chunky and finely milled glitter, it cost just £1.70 and if you get 3 then you get 3 free! I applied this to my cheeks and around the outside of my eyes.

Primer: Nip + Fab Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix

Foundation: Tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation in Light – Medium Honey

Concealer: Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Fair Neutral

Contour: Too Faced Cocoa Contour

Powder: Kat Von D ‘Lock It’ Setting Powder in Translucent

Highlighter: Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

Setting Spray: Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Peach Setting Spray

Brows

I wanted the brows to look fluffy for this look so I used my Spoolie and brushed them upwards and used the Sleek Makeup Eyebrow Kit in Dark & NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel as usual.

Lips

Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Chi

I also used the white Wet n Wild eyeliner to draw a line down the middle of my bottom lip. I feel this is such a nice touch to make this look even more festival like.

This was such a fun look to create and it makes me wish I was actually going to a festival! Are you going to any this year?

Thanks for reading and thanks again to Rebecca for the collab! I hope you enjoy both of our looks!
