Editors Note: ¬†This post has was updated on 9th February 2017 with my review on the product Boot Stay as promised in the original edition ūüôā

Now that winter is around the corner its time to dust off the over the knee boots and knee high boots that you locked away right before summer! ¬†Now I love slouchy boots and the effortless cute way they finish off an outfit, however, over the knee boots that slouch,¬†(especially when it’s just one boot)¬†¬†has always been a bugbear of mine. ¬†I think it makes an outfit (especially a dress) look untidy.

Increase Your Wardrobe Space Without Getting Rid of Any Clothes

This morning when I woke up shivering, I couldn’t live in denial any longer, winter’s ¬†closer than I thought!

Today’s task is to change my wardrobes over from summer wear to winter wear. ¬†Summer clothes will be¬†stored in trunks (and under the bed!) and my winter warmers will get to see the light of day again as I free them from the vac bags stored in¬†my trunks and spare bedroom!

Because I like to like to hang almost everything up in my wardrobe, it can sometimes get pretty crammed and packed in there. ¬†I’m sure it’s happened to you (if not already happening), your clothes are jammed together like sardines, some items falling off the hangers, other items you cant even see as they’re squished in so tight. ¬†There’s never enough space.

Well recently I stumbled across a remedy for this little inconvenience; Velvet Space Saving Hangers.

These little gems have taken my wardrobe…..

FROM THIS…… ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†TO THIS!

Postcards From Morocco

Marrakech Musings….

My BFF (Coleen) and I were recently discussing going back to Morocco later this year for a re-visit as we visited Marrakech last year and had such a great time.  After a good half hour reminiscing over a Pinot Noir or two, I felt inspired me to write a post about our visit last year!

Our decision to visit Marrakech last August 2014 was very last minute. ¬†All we knew was, we wanted to venture to pastures new and it had to be hot! ¬†Once we decided upon Morocco, we were booked,¬†e-tickets in hand with only 6 days before to shop, pack and head off.¬† Continue reading…

Jovani Dresses ~ My Guilty Pleasure

My Jovani Romance

As much as I love high street fashion and shopping, once in a while it’s nice to treat yourself! ¬†I first discovered Jovani¬†on Britney Spears way back when,¬†when she wore a very sexy flesh coloured mesh number covered in scattered crystals. ¬†I was bewildered by how that¬†outfit, so revealing and outrageously sexy could still look so elegant. ¬†I was besotted! ¬† ¬†When my BFF returned from LA soon afterwards with a similar style Jovani dress, I fell in love and had to go shopping!

Over the Knee Boot Swag

Tall Boots / Over The Knee Boot Lust

One of the things I love about autumn/winter are over the knee boots. ¬†They are so easy to wear and literally go with anything from shorts, dresses, dress-shirts, leggings, jeans…. easily dressed down or glammed up for an effortless evening look when teamed with a sexy little playsuit or dress.

I personally love suede over the knee boots teamed with a high hemline as they give a chic understated look.  The slight ruched effect of suede is forgiving of any leg shape imperfections and looks effortlessly on point.

I’ve been lusting over so many this season, but here is a list of 5 of my faves:

Autumn Fashion Staple Pieces

autumn fashion

Autumn’s here and although not yet freezing cold, its chilly enough to update the wardrobe with some knits, boots and jackets!

I have a few staple pieces¬†in my wardrobe that I re-buy / update every year and also some individual items¬†that are so classic I’ve been wearing for years! ¬†This post covers what I consider to be a few¬†staple autumn wardrobe pieces.

Bold Colours and Prints

I love mixing bold, bright vibrant colours with tan/nudes in autumn. ¬†I’m not talking yellows and neon but more slightly¬†moody colours such as olive burnt orange, scarlet red, browns….

As its still quite mild outside, you can still get away with a long sleeve dress and boots. ¬†I love this look as it’s casual but still smart and versatile to wear regardless of your plans or time of day.
