Many of you (who actually read my blog) know how much of an obsession I have over the details of any outfit. My belief is that every little detail – whether it’s the texture, print, cut, type or the technique used on the fabric – creates an interesting style, silhouette or statement on any simple outfit. I hope what I am trying to say makes sense? If not here is my latest outfit from Luxemme that explains it all.

Luxemme is a forward-thinking fashion brand that combines Parisienne chic with Manchester cool, all with a luxury twist at affordable prices. The whole concept of combining Parisienne fashion and Manchester street style was interesting enough, but actually seeing it come to life in an outfit was pretty amazing. I literally jumped at the opportunity to select something to style on my blog. 

My outfit is from their Limited Edition and trust me it was pretty hard to choose – I wanted them all…! Anyway, I opted for this ‘The Delphine Eyelet’ – a white two-piece or co-ord set, as you might say. I loved how it’s made of super lightweight material but still keeps that figure flattering fit to it. Also, the lace up detail on the sides came in handy to adjust the fit. The colour, the lovely scallop and eyelet lace up details perfectly expose that elegant luxury look. 

With all the interesting details on the outfit, I thought a bold red lip was the perfect way for me to accessorise this sophisticated look. I also added a black leather bag and black lace up shoes, matching the lace up details on the top, to finish off the look. I hope you like it!

Venice- Gandola

So I finally had the chance to upload the second part of my Venice trip. Our second day started with a very delicious breakfast at the hotel, which ended with a little too many crossiants. I guess it's acceptable because your diet can go out of window when you're on holiday. After that, a quick hop on the train for 12 minutes and we were back in sunny Venice. 

For me, visiting Venice without a gondola ride is like committing a crime - it's just not right. It’s a must do for any visit to this city of canals. Now, call me a ‘typical tourist’ but I didn’t feel like I had truly experienced Venice until I was floating down the Grand Canal in a gondola. Finally there we were on a beautiful, romantic ride down the canal, while the gondolier paddled away through the candy-hued houses and beautifully designed bridges, serenading us with tales of the surroundings. That 40 minute ride was captivating. 

After gobbling up a delicious lunch without having the time to take pictures, we stepped into a water taxi and went off to San Marco. It was pretty amazing standing surrounded by one of the most beautiful interiors and historic buildings. At the same time, it was impossible to escape the crowds of people and all the pigeons(!), but honestly some of the finest views in Venice can be seen there. We went inside the beautiful cathedral and then just sat on the steps that separate it from the water. Here you can look out over the end of the Grand Canal, towards the Salute church or over the lagoon to the island church of San Giorgio Maggiore. It was truly mesmerising. 

As for my outfit, I slipped into my new favourite dress. It was flowy, comfortable and perfect for the sun-kissed weather. The shoulder off detail on the dress delicately expresses the boho vibe and I also braided my hair and added this hand harness for my accessories to put more emphasis on the boho style. I hope you like the look!

Gold Details

Gold Details

Before I start, I just want to say my Venice Part 2 will be up soon and I have more exciting new posts on the way. :D 
When it comes to simple outfits, details are the key for me. As I was clicking away through slides of jumpers on different websites, I came across this navy one, which quickly stood out. That's right, I was totally digging the gold detailing on the jumper, and all of a sudden it was already in my basket :)
I loved how even though it's a crop jumper, the length is just the right amount for me - not too long and not too short. The fit is a little boxy and boyish, which I love by the way. 
As the jumper was the statement piece on this outfit, I built the other pieces around it, which was pretty simple. I went navy-on-navy with my Levis shorts and I didn’t think I needed any accessories as the gold detailing was doing a pretty good job. I finished off with my new lace up heels from New Look, which will be seen in many of my future looks. I hope you like it!
