HOW TO TAKE YOUR OUTFIT FROM DAY TO NIGHT

HOW TO TAKE YOUR OUTFIT FROM DAY TO NIGHT

SPEEDY AND SAVVY DRESSING MADE EASY BY A SWIPE OF LIPPY AND A TOUSLE OF YOUR LOCKS

We all know the oh so real struggle of having to dress for multiple occasions throughout one day. This can happen amongst the hectic-ness of the festive season but also in the height of summer, when family barbecues and drinks on the beach pry us away from our desks.This is a particular skill I have slowly come to (and am still) mastering, thanks to my blogger work life. You constantly find yourself having to dress for a multitude of occasions spanning across one day and more than often requiring no less than a suitcase! This can range from breakfast meetings leading to events at nightclubs and rooftop bars or you can find yourself having to dress for a hardcore workout session followed by a formal dinner (hiya sweat and sticky hair!)

The fact is, I’d rather not lug a heavy bag around London all day, having to keep a watchful eye on said bag in the corner of the room at every event. And so I decided to start dressing savvy and make outfits work for all occasions, come rain, shine, casual drinks or dancing on tables. Boohoo challenged me to pick a skirt and style 2 outfits around it, making holiday dressing, capsule wardrobes and general life so much easier! There’s nothing I love more than a bit of versatility and you might have seen I did a similar post in the winter here! So now we’re into summer, here’s how I’m taking my outfits from day to night this season!

STICK ON SOME SASSY SUNNIES AND CHANGE UP YOUR HAIR FOR DAY TIME CHIC

Firstly start with your base piece – the piece everything is central around – I went for this killer £16 skirt (that lace up detail though!) – I usually find it easier to keep the bottom half pieces the same – it’s easier to change your top half up! I was also majorly obsessing over these Leopard print booties so made sure they were also a focal point! You’ll know from my Instagram that I’m not the most colourful of dressers, nor do I wear a lot of print, but a bit of leopard has always caught my eye! I’m also loving how the studs and buckles toughen the look up! 

My fave Ray Ban frames are always a must come day time and I whacked my hair up in a little bun to let this fringed beauty of a jumper do the talking! If this isn’t the ultimate summer festival knitwear I don’t know what is! This is also my go to hair style of the moment as it comes out in the most beautiful waves after you’ve left it in for a few hours! (more of these cheeky beauty hacks coming to my YouTube soon!) so you’ve already prepped your hairstyle come night time! 

BEING ABLE TO CHANGE UP YOUR LOOK WITHOUT CARRYING A BAG THAT WEIGHS THE EQUIVALENT OF A SMALL CHILD IS ALWAYS A BONUS

For evening, I wanted to accentuate the leopard print and contrast the edgy skirt with something more delicate so spotted this gorge blouse! Embroidered blouses are everywhere this summer so I was dying to add one to my ever expanding floordrobe wardrobe. My fave way to change up my look for the day is to let my hair down (literally!) add a swipe of lippy and either change my top or chuck on a jacket!  It’s remarkable what a bit of red lipstick and some Batiste can do!

The best part was that I could still change up my look but without carrying around a bag that weighs the equivalent of a small child. My trusty cross body was suffice, simply stash with a travel perfume (nothing like a little refresh) lipstick, sunnies, a mini dry shampoo, some powder and you’re good to go! Sometimes I roll up an extra blouse and pop it in, but on this occasion I layered up and wore it underneath! 

 

SHOP THE PIECES

 

I hope you loved this one and seeing how I take my outfits from day to night by switching up a few pieces – I had so much fun experimenting with this one! Would love to know which outfit you prefer and how you guys like to change things up!

3 WAYS TO CHANGE UP YOUR WORKWEAR STYLE

3 WAYS TO CHANGE UP YOUR WORKWEAR STYLE

“PREVIOUSLY WHEN I THOUGHT OF WORKWEAR, I THOUGHT OF CLINGY, ITCHY MATERIAL, ILL FITTING BLAZERS AND CLUNKY SHOES OVER TIGHTS THAT YOU EVER-SO-CAUTIOUSLY TRIED TO KEEP LADDER FREE”

 

Ahh work wear, something which used to fill me with dread at school work experience days, sifting through my wardrobe only to dress like a dowdy woman 30 years my senior, only to sit in a office I had no desire to be in. My first experiences of ‘proper work’ didn’t exactly excite me nor fill me with a burning desire. Previously, when I thought of work wear, I thought of clingy, itchy materials, ill-fitting blazers and skirts and clunky shoes over tights that you ever-so-cautiously tried to keep ladder free. Admittedly I loved wearing uniform at school, I felt smart, put together and didn’t have to fuss about what to wear every day or people judging your social status on your River Island handbag and choice of outerwear.

Fast forward into my little adult life and I’ve become quite fond of work wear, probably because I’m minus the uninspiring jobs I had to sit at for a week at work experience! Our clothes have the power to motivate, inspire and make us feel pretty damn good, so why save your fave pieces for the weekend? Whatever your job, you dress yourself in the morning ready to smash the day ahead, so whether you have strict dress rules or not, there’s always some way you can put your own little twist on things. Here I’m sharing what I’ve learnt and 3 ways you can change up your workwear style, to really lift your confidence, mood and make you feel like you can boss it everyday!

SWITCH UP YOUR ACCESSORIES

 

Your work bag doesn’t have to be boring and practical doesn’t have to be boring either. Keep it smart, structured and with enough room for all your days essentials. You can never go wrong with a structured cross body or a little classic handbag. For work I like to keep the shape simple and then perhaps look for bold colours, prints and details, or if I’m going for an interesting shape, I’ll keep the colour paired back. Accessories really have the power to bring a simple look to life, even a humble, white, shirt and black trousers. Pair it with one of these babies and let the compliments flood in!

SHOP MY ACCESSORY PICKS!

LOOK FOR TWISTS ON CLASSIC PIECES

It’s no surprise that tailored, black trousers are pretty much everyones workwear staple, so why not invest in some that have little twists and details? Getting the tailoring on point is key and I must admit I was really impressed with these Fashion Union babies that I’m wearing – they’re super affordable but also the tailoring is pretty good for your buck – being the shorty I am I thought they’d be super long but was pleasantly surprised! 

Look for little twists on staple pieces – like the lace trim on these! A tie waist, pleats, bows, embellishments, cropped, prints and stripes. It doesn’t have to be plain and boring, you can choose a classic shape and then hunt down pieces that are a little bit different – ASOS are awesome for this! Also make sure you spend time trying them on and really getting a pair that fit properly, are comfortable and make you feel UHH-MAZING!

SHOP MY FAVE BOTTOMS

YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY SHIRTS

Okay, so perhaps you’d have to draw the line at some point, but if there’s one thing I can’t physically stop myself buying, it’s shirts! Whenever I stroll into Zara, my changing room rack is practically collapsing under the weight of the sheer amount of shirts I grab. I like having my favourite few pairs of trousers and go-to denim, so shirts for me are where you can really change things up! The biggest tip, especially for work wear is having comfortable and breathable material – so spend some time actually feeling the pieces your trying on!

This shirt has been my fave for over a year, simple, breathable but with those all important flared sleeves! If you’ve read this post you’ll know I love a bit of sleeve action 😉 Similarly with trousers, look for details and updates to bring your shirt collection up to the current season and trends. Ruffles, frills and flared sleeves are my go to at the moment! I also love matching my lippy for the ultimate power-dressing look (also nothing makes it appear like you have your life together like slapping on some bold lippy 😉 )

SHOP MY SHIRT FAVOURITES

SHOP THE LOOK

Thanks so much for reading this one beauts – I hope it gave you a little bit of inspo, wherever you work, whoever you are! I love a good bit of tailoring, would love to know your fave tips for styling work wear or how you dress for a day of bossing it!

3 LIFE LESSONS LEARNT FROM 3 YEARS OF BLOGGING

3 LIFE LESSONS LEARNT FROM 3 YEARS OF BLOGGING

“HONESTLY, I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE OR WHO I WOULD BE WITOUT MY BLOG AND MAN, HAS IT TAUGHT ME A THING OR TWO!”

July marked the 3rd year of Style Petal. The blog that survived the 3 previous ones before it. 3 years of rambles, outfits, probably too many coffee flat lays and spilling my thoughts onto the world. Many wonderful friendships, many incredible oppertunities and a few awkward ‘I don’t feel fancy enough to be here’ moments! It’s become some sort of a tradition to mark your blogs birthday, or ‘blogiversarry’ and why not? More and more people are grabbing the confidence to show the world their thoughts, dreams and passions and that’s bloody amazing! 

So I thought it was about time to celebrate my own little corner of the internet, because, well, I’m pretty proud of what it’s become and super excited to see where it’s heading! Next year I’m tempted to just organise a massive garden party for loads of lovely bloggers, to get together, make friends, inspire one another and just have fun! But for now, I thought I would share 3 life lessons that I’ve learnt through 3 years of blogging, because honestly, I have no idea where or who I would be without my blog and man, has it taught me a thing or two!

EVERYTHING WILL ALWAYS BE OKAY

 

In all walks of life, we encounter problems, struggles and worries. Here I talked about how to be a  positive person and one thing I always try to remember is that time heals all and one day, you’ll laugh about something you once stressed about! Everyone encounters stress at home, relationships and work but you will always be strong enough to get through it! (Can I be your own personal cheeleaders please?!) You’ve got this, YOU’VE ALWAYS GOT THIS! Sometimes I have occasions where I feel deflated, not good enough and like I don’t fit in, then I constantly doubt what I’m doing is good enough, if people enjoy it enough and then there’s that little thief of joy called comparison. Roll with the hard times, they inspire you to be the best you can be.

NEVER, EVER LET OTHERS OPINIONS EFFECT WHAT YOU DO

I wrote back in October all about why you should care less about what others think. That post was inspired by a few lovely souls who message me about my blog, instagram, etc, one of them being a lovely friend from college. She asked me how I overcame peoples judgement and plucked up the courage to start a blog. I can’t tell you how sad it makes me feel when I get asked questions like that, that theres people who actually put others down, make fun and laugh at those who want to blog. I know because it happened to me, petty girls I barely knew from my small town, a bit older, should have known better yet found some strange satisfaction from making fun. I can only feel sorry for these people and hope they find piece with whatever makes them act in such a way.

No matter how annoying and at times, crushing it was (it eventually stopped) if you want to do something – dance classes, die your hair, learn to sing, blog – don’t let anyone ever tell you or make you feel like you can’t. You could be the juiciest peach in the world and someone will still hate peaches. I remind myself of this anytime I doubt myself, my worth or worry about judgement. Throw yourself into everything you do with passion, love and soul. Life is too short t live any other way or let people hold you back.

DRESS AND LIVE FOR YOU AND ONLY YOU, ALWAYS!

I thank my parents for the way they raised me; I don’t know exactly what they did, but they instilled in me everything I live by today – to always do things for yourself and no one else. I’m a huge people pleaser, I’ll admit that and often forsake my feelings for others happiness. This said, I’m never willing to give up my passions  or sense of self for anyone. I’ve never dressed for the 18 year old guy I fancied at school, I’ve never dressed to fit in, done my makeup for others or worked a job to please someone.

If everything you do truly makes you happy and makes your soul sparkle, you’ve pretty much got the key to nailing life.Wear the crazy dress, the OTT shoes to the family BBQ, die your hair the rainbow and follow your dreams. It’s your life only, so what’s the pointing living it for someone else.

SHOP THE LOOK

I really hope you loved this one my beauts and that you took maybe a little something away from it! A HUGE thank you to every single one of you, whether you’ve been here for 3 years or 3 minutes, thank you for taking the time to read and share your thoughts and stories.

3 Ways to manage your time like a girl boss

3 Ways to manage your time like a girl boss

“WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN LITTLE WAYS OF GOING ABOUT IT AND IT’S A TOPIC THAT SOUNDS SCARILY GROWN UP AND AT TIMES, PERHAPS A LITTE MUNDANE.”

Time management; probably something all of us do, even without consciously realising. Badly, very well, sporadically, haphazardly – we all have our own little ways of going about it and it’s a topic that sounds scarily grown up and at times, perhaps a little mundane. But the fact is we need a little time management within our lives, whatever your job, whatever your day to day schedule – managing your time efficiently and with a little thought can make the biggest of differences to our lives.

Time management isn’t limited to a certain lifestyle – I needed time management when I worked 4 jobs, juggling working in a coffee shop, a cocktail bar, acting and blogging and I still need it now. Without it, I can feel without purpose, un-proactive and lost and with it I feel like I can take over the world (no exaggeration necessary – you shall see this once put into practice!) So here’s my 3 ways to manage your time like a girl boss – from one aspiring bossy to another.

LIVE FOR THE FUTURE

 

I constantly keep a little bank of inspirations – a notebook spilling with thoughts, musings and blog post ideas, waiting for the right concept to bring them to life. I’ve worked with my fave Watch guys Ice before over on Instagram, I adore a watch brand that finally brings us luxe, sleek and quality designs without the £1000 price tag – which was why I was super excited to bring you this post in collaboration with them! This seemed like the perfect time to share my time management tips with you all that I’ve been scribbling down for a while! Which brings me to one of the most obvious, but important things about time management – A WATCH! A chic accessory, yes, but also an instantaneous and effective way to always make sure a gal is always on time. I’m sporting the City Tanner ( V. Appropriate for a day in Englands Capital!) My top tip? If your a serial late runner – set your watch 5/10 mins late – it’s guaranteed to always get you shifting (and running for my train only to be early 😉 )

MAKE LIKE A BOSS & GRAB A SASSY DIARY

I‘ve always loved the yearly tradition of picking up a new diary to motivate me for the year ahead – from writing in my GCSE’S to finding my way into adulthood (crap, I’m an adult?!) and scheduling in press days. My friends have often asked why on earth I still use a pen and paper and not my iPhone for scheduling – I can’t quite say why, but I can’t seem to shake the classic diary. It’s almost as if it isn’t set in stone if you haven’t written it down – tapping it into my iPhone calendar just won’t do, this makes me sound so anti millennial which is ironic when I spend 80% of my time on Instagram! In all seriousness, having a sassy diary does wonders in making you feel like your have your life together (even if you don’t!) I feel very organised and grown up writing things down and thats the way I like it and what works for me!

Paperchase do adorable ones, I tend to go for the handbag friendly sizes and jot everything down to my workouts, meetings, events, holidays, birthdays and everything in between. This is particularly helpful when you need to jot down timings too for things, knowing where and when you have to be always keeps me on track. Always make sure to factor in travel time – when we shot this we skipped between meetings and into my all time, fave, lunch spot in the City – No.11 Pimlico Road! If you can’t resist phone organisation you can always take a pic of the weeks schedule anyways 😉 

FAIL TO PREPARE, PREPARE TO FAIL

Kind of sounds like something a grandparent would say after you’ve forgotten someones birthday card, but it really does ring true – I’m all over the place if I fail to prepare myself – I’d rather spend time over preparing and feeling at ease than panicking like a mad woman! If you have a busy day – prepare everything you possibly can the evening before in order to sleep easy. Lay your outfit out, pack your bag, check where you need to be and at what time, transport (know which train or what route on your sat nav you’re heading!), sort your food out and everything will fall into place a lot easier!

I can’t say how many times spending an extra 10/20 mins an evening preparing has helped me in the long run (and I’m the type of person who ALWAYS leaves things to the last minute, so this has definitely helped kick the habit!) The fact is when we don’t manage our time, it’s easily wasted and time is SO precious. Having a down day? THATS OKAY, enjoy it and watch a Harry Potter marathon! You’re allowed to enjoy down time, factor in time especially for that – In fact I wrote here all about the importance of taking time out!! Then refresh yourself and feel motivated to kick butt the next day and smash everything on that to do list! That’s the work life balance and that’s what proper time management is all about!

SHOP THE LOOK

I hope you loved this one beauts – I’ve always felt on top of the world when I manage my time effectively – so I thought why not share the love and hopefully it will help you guys too! I’d love to hear if you have any tips that really help you to get going and smash that to do list!

What to wear to the races (when you don’t like fascinators!)

What to wear to the races (when you don’t like fascinators!)

“I LOVE THE TOWERING HATS, EXTRAVAGANT FASCINATORS AND DRESS SPECTACULARS BUT TRUTHFULLY, THAT JUST ISN’T FOR ME.”

Ahh the Great, British Races – something that’s become some what of a little tradition here on Style Petal! I’ve been invited every year since I’ve had this little blog, so it wouldn’t feel right to miss out one year! The first year saw Cheltenham races, number two was Ascot and this year we headed to Sandowns with the beauts from Closet London, for a day of pretty dresses and champagne! We were blessed with the most stunning, warm and sunshine filled day!

As much as I love dressing up for formal occasions such as the races, if you’ve read this post, all about masculine dressing, you’ll know that I’m a little bit of a tomboy. Sometimes events can make me feel a little out of place or like I’m not being myself – I love the towering hats, the extravagant fascinators and dress spectaculars that the races brings, but truthfully, that just isn’t for me. So I’m sharing my way of dressing for the races – still traditionally, but also catering for those of you like myself, who just haven’t taken a fancy to fascinators 😉

FOLLOW THE RULES

 

I know, rules! Every race course and each event at the race course has different rules and dress codes for guests – it’s always super handy to check the website beforehand to get the jist! Some are super relaxed, yet still encouraging people to arrive smartly dressed. (really adds to the atmosphere!) Whilst others are notoriously a little more strict, where you will have to arrive with a head piece and sometimes you can’t even wear dresses that bare your shoulders. I always like to get clued up beforehand, perhaps google previous years and get an idea of the vibe and general dress to spark some ideas! I’m also a total Pinterest Whore (so damn addictive!) and I love to put together inspo boards for occasions for when I’m struggling with ideas and inspiration!

TO HEAD PEICE, OR NOT TO HEAD PEICE?

The previous years I attended the races, I’ve worn fascinators on both occasions (I wore a CRACKING and marvellous one at Ascot – you can see the older post here! It was absolutely incredible and I loved it! But I couldn’t help but feel like it just wasn’t me, as grand as I felt, I also felt out of place and like an imposter. I need to feel comfortable to be confident and by comfortable, I mean feel like myself, staying true to my style, so this year I decided to go sans fascinator in favour for something a little more Blair Waldorf esque 😉

Its worth noting that the Aussie’s do race days SO WELL! Their style is minimalistic, chic and streamlined – just my kind of vibe, so I took this into my mind when decided what to wear. They often rock headbands, crowns and boho jewels strung from their forehead, so off I went to Oxford street in search for the perfect headband! I ended up snapping up this beauty which is definitely on the girly side for me, but I adored the velvet pink and jewels!  I’ve often felt like I’d feel a bit naked at the races without a headpiece, which is why I opted for something a little smaller and subtle!

FINDING ‘THE ONE’

I‘ve always liked to make my dress the main attraction, once I’ve got that down, everything else will fall into place. You’ll know I’m a huge fan of Closet London from this previous post during fashion week, their tailoring is always spot on, beautifully crafted material that’s actually made to fit and really flatter your shape. Luxe pieces at a more affordable price point and damn, do their dresses feel good on your body! I’m a sucker for a white dress so as naturally drawn to this simple, laser cut beauty.

Whatever you taste, pick your fave dress shape, something classic and that makes you feel good! This was so comfortable and surprisingly cool on the sweltering day we had! Lace, bright pops of colour, simplistic hues or a streamlined silhouette – get a rough idea of what you’d like to rock in your head and then scour the shops and the online shopping world for your dress of dreams! There’s also constant competitions happening at the races, best dressed, etc and the prizes are always awesome – another incentive to dress your best (besides the cute pics!)

How to style menswear – adding a masculine edge to your wardrobe

How to style menswear – adding a masculine edge to your wardrobe

“Forever a wardrobe staple, forever a never ending quest to find ‘the one’.”

Ah the humble, white shirt. Forever a wardrobe staple, forever a never ending quest to find ‘the one’. I not so ashamedly have a pretty large collection, with which I would ditch in an instant in favour for my growing repertoire of mens shirts. From about the ages of 7-11 I was a pretty big tomboy – boys clothes, matching with my brother, camo print galore, etc, etc. This has definitely channeled its way into my new adult life and thus, into my shirt collection.

I’ve never particularly enjoyed fitted clothes, particularly on the top half, I have no idea why, but I have grown to favour a slouchy sillhouette. I’ve worn oversized shirts countless times on the blog, such as here and here and god help me if I ever tire of them, as I’ll have nothing to wear! Through my quest to find the perfect, oversized shirt I’ve come to find that in actuality, menswear does it so much better – so here’s my little guide on how to style menswear and give your wardrobe that masculine edge (camo and pokemon tee’s not required)

A multi-seasonal god-send

Nothing beats the effortless drape of an oversized shirt, hanging ever so slightly from your shoulders, tucked into some killer, fitted denim.   A classic, white will always be a winner, particularly when paired with a punchy, red lip. Experiment with colours too – blush pink is killer come spring and summer, paired with light wash denim. Come Autumn and Winter, layer over some leather trousers, boots and a wool jacket to nail layering for colder months.

Make Pinterest your bestie

Pinterest, over the last several months, has become nothing less than a sartorial lifeline when I feel like I can’t get myself dressed in the mornings! Some days I can be overwhelmingly inspired and others, stuck in a style rut with not way out except my pyjamas and slippers – I can pass that as cosy-chic, right? I started to compile Pinterest folders over on my Pinterest from seasons to occasions, meaning that whenever I get stuck, I’m only a click away from a wardrobe revamp.

I’m the type of kid that likes to cut out her fave outfits and editorials from Vogue and Elle and stick them all over the place (how damn, cliche!) But this is what’s inspired me for years, keeping a collection of pretty things that I love, so I feel like Pinterest was a natural progression. Not sure what shoes to pair with an outfit? Struggling to know what would compliment your oversized, frill adorned shirt? Pinterest will pull up a multitude of stylish options, which you can save into a little folder to look at whenever you fancy (this ALWAYS helps me, without fail!)

Flirt with masculine silhouettes paired with feminine touches

Nothing makes me happier (or defines my style more) than a delightful mix of masculine and feminine. This is also perfect for those of you who are new to experimenting with menswear and masculine shapes. I don’t feel right if I’m wearing a head to toe masculine outfit, nor do I feel comfortable in a super, girly ensemble – I need to mix the two in order to feel like myself. If you don’t feel right in a look, play around with pieces – your jacket, shoes, bags – balance out the masculine and feminine elements of your outfit until you feel amazing!

My fave masculine/feminine combos:

– Oversized shirts + High waisted jeans (straight legged or skinny are my fave!

– Slouchy, boyfriend jeans + Heels, to add sophistication

– Floaty & ruffled dresses + Denim and biker jackets to toughen a look

– Maxi/midi dresses + boots for the perfect summer festival combo

– Oversized tee’s + bright lips ( a pop of pink, red and coral for summer and a deep plum for autumn/winter

– Tailored trousers + cosy, soft and chic knitwear

– Distressed denim + silk camis and blouses

SHOP MY TOP, MASCULINE PICKS

Shop the look

I hope you guys are loving this pop of colour I’m embracing at the moment, I was also so impressed with how colourful my recent ASOS haul was! I’d love to know whether you’re a seasoned, colour expert or like myself, are only just dabbling your foot into this new world!
