Don’t mesh with me – How to style a mesh dress

nude mesh dress

Happy Sunday! Today’s post is about this gorgeous mesh dress from Missbardo

I often like to wear a mesh long sleeved top under a band tee for some casual layering or I go super dressy if opting for a mesh dress as obviously it is quite flesh revealing!

This particular nude dress has an inbuilt bodysuit for a bit of extra coverage to conceal those private parts that you probably don’t want to show on a night out haha.

I love the detailing it has down the sides with a black strip with metal rings all the way down, adding a slightly edgy feel to the look.

 

I think a dress like this is perfect for a night out when you are on holiday. I don’t know why but for some reason it is just totally acceptable to wear way more revealing clothes when you’re on holiday haha!

I paired the dress with my absolute favourite black shaggy coat and some black lace up heels to complete the outfit.

London Fashion Week – AW 17 | what I wore

london fashion week Hi guys! Apologies for the delay on my London Fashion Week post but alas it’s here!

I have attended a few fashion weeks before, but this was my first London Fashion Week as a blogger 🙂 I have been blogging just under a year now and last season I was away on holiday so I was super excited to experience it this AW 17!

Unfortunately I didn’t photograph all of it, I just filmed short videos which I uploaded onto my snapchat and instagram story so I can’t share any pictures of what I saw.. silly me!. But I can show you pictures of the most interesting part (my outfits! haha)

The above outfit was all Missguided.

I met my friend and fellow blogger Emma and we went together to a few presentations and then headed to the Blogger hangout!

I then met another couple of bloggers and went to the Fantome – Malan Breton show which was one of my favourite!

Such great designs and the music was amazing so it really set such a romantic mood.

See below a few of my favourite looks:

Friday’s outfit:

london fashion week outfit inso

The above was my first day outfit all from Pretty Little Thing and the shoes were from Public Desire.

I only attended 3 days out of the 5 – as much as I love fashion I don’t love walking around in London all day from show to show in heels so was happy with doing just 3 days haha 🙂

Monday’s outfit:

I think by Monday I was literally just wanting to be comfortable and have easy to walk in shoes and not be cold!

As the other days my feet were literally killing so I opted for a more casual look!

Anyway guys that is it for this London Fashion Week outfits. I hope you guys liked them!

Next season I will be sure to take more pictures of the collections that I saw so that I can share them with you too.. perhaps I will even do a vlog!

P.S. If you didn’t know, I have started a YouTube channel where I post weekly a mixture of fashion, beauty and lifestyle videos.

Easy Date Night Dressing with PrettyLittleThing

black lace up body con dress

Once again it’s that time of year and Valentines day is right round the corner. For many people, it’s a date to look forward to and for others it’s a dreaded day. I personally think people get too obsessed over it, if you have someone to celebrate it with, then great! If you are single, then so what?! Celebrate being single and independent! As long as you are happy in yourself then Valentines day is all what you make it!

Today’s post is all about easy date night dressing in collaboration with the absolutely babes PrettyLittleThing.

Whether you’re dressing up for a date with a partner, or a date with your mum, there’s no excuse to not slay your outfit! 😉 I always say I don’t dress up or do make-up or anything for anyone else – it’s all about feeling happy and confident with yourself when you look in the mirror.

rose gold heels

How adorable are these rose gold beauties?  They have a slight foil effect to them, which is unusual as I have no other heels like it. I love shoes with a thick heel like this as firstly it makes them more stable and supportive when you wear them, and also makes them more versatile as they aren’t super delicate but not too chunky if you know what I mean..

crystal choker

crystal choker

I’m not afraid to say it but I am the QUEEN of chokers. I think I probably wear them 99% of the time, I have so many it’s ridiculous & this beautiful crystal choker is by far my favourite I have ever owned!

It pretty much speaks for itself as you can see. I loved to pair it with this dress as it really makes it quite formal, however I would also wear this choker with a big oversized jumper or something, it doesn’t just need to be worn with something smart.

date night dress

As most girls will agree, you just cannot go wrong with an LBD. I love these bodycon dress as it really enhances your shape and I was really surprised with the quality of the material as the dress was only £45! Shop it > here 

Now I’ve just got to say, even though I am sure I have mentioned several times on my blog that I absolutely LOVE PrettyLittleThing. They are one of my absolute go-tos for everything from dresses for a night out, for shoes or even lingerie! See below a few of my favourite lingerie picks at the moment.
