Frills and Thrills with Adore Me // OOTD

If there's one thing about myself that I need to work on and improve, it's my confidence. So when lingerie company, Adore Me, approached me asking if I would like to style an outfit for them that would make me look great, feel great and embrace my confident side, I just had to say yes.

The theme was Date Night, which gave me a lot to play with. Dates are nerve-wracking enough without the pressure of finding the right outfit. For me, comfort and confidence go hand in hand; I don't want to be wearing something that I find myself constantly worrying about or having to adjust. The same goes for dates. When putting together this look, I wanted something that was a good balance of chic and casual. I went with a tailored jacket and toned down the look with a pair of jeans. To jazz up the outfit, I focussed on little touches of texture- these came from the frilled sleeves on my white turtleneck jumper and the beautiful pink tassel earrings I'm wearing.

I've been loving sleek, effortless looks at the moment- the act of just chucking something on and instantly looking great. I think adding a chic, tailored piece to an otherwise casual outfit really makes all the difference and can give you the feel of dressing up without going over the top.

Good clothes make me feel great, but sometimes good food can make me feel even better, which is why going out to eat is one of my ideal dates. It's chilled out and gives you a chance to talk, plus if things start to get awkward, there're always cocktails to save the day!

Clothes may be the key to building your confidence but it's what's underneath that can sadly make that all come crashing down for some of us. But Adore Me know what an effect a great set of underwear can have on us, and with their extensive collection of products to suit any shape or style, you're bound to find something that makes you look, but more importantly feel, great.

English Rose // OOTD

After a short hiatus to accommodate my move to my new flat, I'm back with another outfit post! This one has a very summery vibe, featuring one of my favourite recent purchases- a rose printed tea dress from Topshop.

I've been loving tea dresses at the moment. I think they look so feminine and flattering, especially as they synch your waist in but flare out into a skater-style skirt. 

This beautiful dress has been a perfect addition to my summer wardrobe but I can't wait to take it into Autumn and experiment with styling it for the colder weather.

For a daytime look, I styled the dress with some tan sandals and a brown bucket bag. I didn't want to take any attention away from the pretty rose print so I went understated with my jewellery and chose this silver chain choker.
