Oh lipsy, how I do love you. Have you ever noticed how a lipsy dress always seems to flatter you in all the right places? You walk around wearing it, feeling like a complete and utter sass-queen. But have you ever brought a lipsy dress… in the sale?!
Oh how much more exciting it is to wear that £65 dress that you brought for just £32. Especially with a handsome, suited & booted guy like Ben on your arm!
We had a wonderful time at our friend’s wedding recently – I adore having an occasion to dress up for. This embroidery lipsy dress was a last minute purchase after a tonne of panic shopping, and I am so glad I found it in the sale! The blue really stood out and was just absolutely perfect for the occasion.
Oh January – you’re killin’ us! How are we supposed to enjoy the sales and fund our ‘New Year, New Me’ goals when our empty piggy banks are still crying from our Christmas splurges?
The key is in the basics of it all. Why do we always wear the same things when there is a tonne of cute clothing at the back of the wardrobe?
Because we haven’t cracked the idea of versatility. Sigh.
Why do we buy 2 different tops when you could buy 1 that can be styled in 2 different ways, saving you half the cost?
This February (yes, January is a total write off for me…) I’m going back to the basic mechanics of my wardrobe. Staples. Individual pieces that can be switched up. Versatile shopping!
Maybe I’ll buy another yellow rain coat, or another pair of stripy trousers. That’s cool wth me, I need the odd random piece in that closet o’mine. However, the fact of the matter is; maybe I could buy something to go with the trousers, which can also be easily worn with other pieces in my wardrobe?
So lets get the basics down to a tee. That way, when we’re crying into our penniless piggy banks, we can still be smoking’ hot without any effort, switching between the most basic of styles for the biggest of impacts.
With this framework in mind, here are a few of my favourite staples right now on Boohoo.com that won’t break the bank and definitely give effortless style…
It is officially 1st January 2017, an entirely new year. I am so excited to start 2017 with a fresh mindset and a new tonne of goals that I want to see fulfilled by this time next year! Bring it on!
A new year shouldn’t be about a ‘new’ you. Why? Because you are already a brilliant person as you are, so why would you want to be any different? Instead, it should be a blank page. Not a blank page ready for lots of big changes, but instead, a blank page for you to fill with all your hopes and dreams and aspirations for the year ahead!
Aim to live life to the fullest, and you’ll see positive changes in yourself without aiming to directly make them. Keep a positive attitude about the year ahead, because you can only go up from here.
I hope you all celebrated the new year in style and are excited for what 2017 has to bring! Happy 2017 everybody!
I hope you’ve all been enjoying plenty of fireworks this weekend, whilst wrapped up in plenty of scarfs and hats! In tribute to the cold season, here is a super simple makeup look for November with a cute highlight. Enjoy
Check out tonight’s Candy Skull inspired look wearing my Boohoo ‘Tatiana Halloween Boo Bodycon Dress’ – it is super cute and super simple to tie together any Halloween makeup you have a go at this year.
I’ve been so quiet lately, so I have a couple of posts I want to share with you that I just haven’t yet had time to write, including Ben’s Passing Out Parade and My Holiday to Majorca – I only landed last night!
So stick around and I’ll have a few little things popping up shortly. If you aren’t already, follow me on Instagram & Snapchat @katylouise15 for all my daily updates!
It’s Tuesday, I’m typing this as I slowly gain consciousness, and feel absolutely shattered. I think Tuesday is sometimes more difficult than Monday because you’ve got to get more energy to wake up after an early start yesterday too…
I found this quote anyway, and figured it should be some sort of motivation to get up this morning. So today I am going to focus on making others smile. Because making someone else smile is one of the greatest satisfactions in life!
