Inspired by Mum blogger challenge

If there is one thing my mum taught me when it comes to fashion it's that colour is EVERYTHING.
 For this competition I could have submitted an outfit that was replica or inspired by one of my mums however this is not what she would encourage me to do. Whilst most people would cringe at the thought of their mum choosing an outfit I honestly don't mind! I could rely on her to pick me up any outfit- she would shop at the right shops and look for the right styles.
 Black is a partial no go where we are concerned. Unless there is an impeccable black ensemble we stay away and even then coloured accessories are a must have. Her favourite colour is red which is reflected in her everyday style and triggered my obsession with red lips. Red lips are powerful and have the power to complete a look.
My outfit
 Playsuit & Shoes: Topshop
This turquoise piece is one of my favourites and the lace back is divine. I find this AW13 colour particularly flattering and love wearing it as it is very rare that you can pick up this colour on the high street.

 My must have House of Fraser item:

As you know I like to do things a little different, not wacky by all means, however enjoy adding a little sassyness to ensembles. This Coast Harper clutch is gorgeous and is another darling trend colour. The purple would compliment the turquoise and complete the outfit to it's finest. If red lips are not really your thing you could easily substitute for a lipstick that had more tints of pink. I believe the concentration should lie in either the shoes or the clutch and in this case I believe the clutch has more impact as all attention is drawn to the playsuit itself meaning your feet would be a little neglected. Every girl loves a little sparkle and glamour and this clutch provides both. Remember darlings it is all about experimenting and adding this fabulous piece would be doing this.
 
I hope you all have a lovely mother's day and spoil your mums, they are worthy!

The Grand National Ladies Day Outfit Challenge

Well darlings, it's Spring! This means it is time to get our favourite SS14 colours out of the wardrobe and onto the streets. The most perfect way to flaunt you gorgeous ensembles? Why, the races of course! With ladies day at the Grand National just around the corner it's time to decide on our outfits. Ladies day is a highly anticipated event that brings out the most fabulous fashion.

Here is my perfect ladies day outfit:

Earrings: Accessorize, £8

As you know I like to go a little unconventional. Classic ladies day involves dresses and fascinators however darlings its time to deviate. Tailoring is key and provokes sophistication and class. I love the combination of mint and pink which make this ensemble show stopping. A plain, understated camisole draws attention to the outfits use of colour alongside the embellishment found in the earrings and clutch, after all every outfit needs a touch of sparkle. Gold pointed courts match the gold lining running through the jacquard pattern found in the shorts, finishing the outfit to it's finest and making the outfit look elegant and simply gorgeous!

Snake skin magnetic nails with Essie

As you can tell Essie is becoming one of my favourites! For this midweeks mani I used 'Shake it Up' metallic polish which created this fabulous snakeskin effect.

Naughty Nautical by Essie

Personal product recommendation:
Naughty Nautical  by Essie
 This is the first time I have ever used an Essie nail polish and I was a bit sceptical despite hearing good reviews. There is nothing worse than having to repaint your nails, when you are on a busy schedule, because you don't like the colour! This polish provided me with the opposite, I think I am in love. 
This turquoise colour is perfect for leaving AW13 and tiptoeing into SS14. The polish itself is easily applicable and smudge resistant and the outcome is fabulous!

To women who remain on the margins of society, and to those who suffer, you have not been forgotten, change is still occurring. 

Power
Success
Recognition

We are proud to be women.
