• {Fashion Monday} May Fashion Favourites

    I am still pondering how in two days time it will be June I mean, it feels like only a few days ago we were starting May and I was sharing the April Fashion Favourites post. It is already the last Monday of the month and I am sharing the May Fashion Favourites post which makes me realise there is no time to waste (relaxing is not time-wasting it’s a productive action for one’s soul body & mind).

    When I shared the April Fashion Favourites post, it was a Bank Holiday in the UK and most commonwealth countries. Today is the last Monday in May and it too is a Bank Holiday in the UK meaning I do not have to go into work today, I can chill and relax but knowing how fast the year is moving I decided to do something productive whilst relaxing and I shall be revealing that in the coming weeks.


    may fashion favourites

    During the month of May, I had put together 4 fashion posts and one Father’s Day gift ideas fashion post. It was a lovely month to be sharing fashion ideas because almost all of the outfits are as a result of me being on holiday in Seoul, Korea and having a blast.

    May Fashion Favourites

    One Short two outfits – The weather in Seoul was absolutely blasting for spring, I think if in ever had such kind of weather in the UK we would be basking in warmth and happiness more often than the miserable and down-casting feelings we get with the dreary weather of ours. Because I do not get to wear shorts as often as I would like in the UK, I made sure to wear them everyday whilst in Korea. I had mentioned previously on the blog that, I would spend the majority of my time in Korea clubbing and true to my word we did that daily. So it became essential for me to put together outfits that I could easily pull from day to-night and shorts being my favourite items of clothing I did just that.

    bodycon pencil skirts

    Forever21 bodycon pencil skirts – I love skirts like the next person but bodycons were ones that I avoided like the plague because I did not know how to dress them until I had no choice but to buy bodycon skirts in forever21 whilst I was on holiday in Korea. After buying the first bodycon I dresses it with a bodysuit and went out clubbing, I got a lot of compliments and my confidence went up the roof so much that the next day I went and purchased 2 more bodycon pencil skirts. I have since found it easy to dress bodycon pencil skirts and hoping soon I will have the motivation and courage to dress bodycon dresses.

    From Day to Night – As I have mentioned already, whilst in Korea I got the knack of putting together outfits that I could easily dress from day to-night without much effort. So when I returned I was thinking of how to dress any ‘dress’ from day to-night by looking at what I had in my closet and that’s how this outfit was born.

    father's day gift ideas

    Father’s Day gift ideas ~ Daddy’s choice – Though I have added this post with my May Fashion favourites, it is a gift idea guide than a fashion post. I do love men’s fashion and when my daddy chose the grey suit, grey tie and black shoes I knew I had to include it in my May Fashion favourites post.

    Monochrome Inspired – I always dress in monochrome whether intentional or otherwise and I have noticed this about myself so I thought with the injection of colours that I am currently doing to my wardrobe why not share a monochrome inspired outfit with a tour of nude and rose gold. I mean what outfit doesn’t look good with rose gold accessories? With Nude it could be a hit or a miss but rose gold is always a winner.

    There you have it, all the fashion posts that make May Fashion favourites post, which was your favourite fashion post? What is your style?

      Great choices for May and for Father’s Day. I love that striped top it’s a great style that flatters the figure.

      • June 9, 2016 / 7:06 am

        Thanks, I am loving stripes too

    2. June 8, 2016 / 4:30 pm

      I love finding a new item or style of clothing that you can wear in your own way. Really opens up some wardrobe opportunities!

      • June 8, 2016 / 6:46 am

        It sure does and that’s what I love when I am creating outfit ideas

    4. June 7, 2016 / 8:51 pm

      I love your May picks especially the bunny earrings. I don’t do bodycon but a nice maxi skirt or dress works for me.

      • June 8, 2016 / 6:45 am

        I am just getting into bodycon and loving it. I love maxi dresses and skirts too

    6. June 7, 2016 / 1:15 pm

      I wish I had the courage to wear figure hugging clothes these days

      • June 7, 2016 / 1:18 pm

        I love lose clothes but now and again tight clothes I love

    7. June 7, 2016 / 12:46 pm

      Some great ideas, you’ve got a large collections there 🙂 I’m a massive fan of pencil skirts so think that’ll be on top of my own list.

      What an unbelievable collection for May. I love them all but especially those “from day to night”.

      • June 7, 2016 / 1:14 pm

        Thanks Michele, I had fun putting them together

    10. June 7, 2016 / 10:07 am

      My favourites would have to be the Father’s Day Gifts as I loved the suit it was a gorgeous slate grey shade.

      • June 7, 2016 / 10:21 am

        Thanks Ana, I enjoyed putting this together with my dad

    11. June 7, 2016 / 9:47 am

      Fab collection! I love the stripy top, stripes always look lovely don’t they? Love the pencil skirts too!

      • June 7, 2016 / 10:17 am

      Lovely picks, if only I could pull off the bodycon look! 🙂 My style is all about super girly florals or a completely opposite grungy look.

      • June 7, 2016 / 10:15 am

        Thanks Fiona, I love florals but don’t pull them off too well

    13. June 7, 2016 / 8:40 am

      I think the monochrome style post was my fave. As much as I’d love to wear pencil skirts, I just don’t have the figure for them lol x

      • June 7, 2016 / 10:09 am

        Awww thanks so much

      • June 7, 2016 / 10:11 am

        Thanks so much Kerry

    14. June 7, 2016 / 2:16 am

      These are great pieces, there are such great fashion trends right now. I have been buying a lot of black and white stripes lately.

      • June 7, 2016 / 10:01 am

        Yes u and me both

    15. June 7, 2016 / 12:05 am

      I have always loved pencil skirts. My office is now really casual so I don’t have a reason to wear them anymore.

      • June 7, 2016 / 10:00 am

        My office is casual but I still like to dress up a bit every now and again

    16. June 6, 2016 / 10:45 pm

      Great choices and great style! I really love the earings. I love body con things, but I don’t own too many. Thanks for sharing!

      • June 7, 2016 / 9:59 am

        Thanks so much for stopping by

    17. June 6, 2016 / 10:13 pm

    21. June 6, 2016 / 8:15 pm

      I’m still so obsessed with blazers and bodycon skirts. Good to see they arent going anywhere anytime soon.

      • June 6, 2016 / 10:31 pm

        I know right they are where to stay

    22. June 6, 2016 / 5:54 pm

      This is a great recap of fashion favorites from last month. I love Forever 21. You can’t beat the price and great, fashion-forward items!

      I love your May fashion favorites. There are several items on there that I’d wear on a regular basis. You’ve got a very helpful Father’s Day list as well. I’ve been stuck on what to get my dad.

      • June 6, 2016 / 10:29 pm

        Aww thanks so much Terri much appreciated

    25. June 6, 2016 / 2:58 pm

        Aww thanks so much Franc, I try indeed

    26. June 6, 2016 / 2:57 pm

      I love the look of those Forever21 Bodycon skirts and anything monochrome gets my vote x

      • June 6, 2016 / 3:17 pm

        Thanks Rachel, monochrome is winning for me too

    27. June 6, 2016 / 2:24 pm

      These are some amazing styles. I am just starting to get into fashion, I need to start embracing my body and enjoying it. =)

      • June 6, 2016 / 2:47 pm

        That’s the best way forward, use what you have and make it work for you that’s what fashion is in my mind

    28. June 6, 2016 / 1:24 pm

      I can’t believe June is here I’m loving the monochrome trend.

      • June 6, 2016 / 1:38 pm

        You and me both, thanks Joanna

    29. June 6, 2016 / 10:07 am

        Thanks so much I am loving it too

    30. June 6, 2016 / 9:45 am

      I love the pencil skirts and the black and white striped shirt. And those gift ideas for Father’s Day are great, too, especially the grey suit.

      • June 6, 2016 / 10:32 am

        Thanks Alli, I love me a nice pencil skirt it has become a staple in my wardrobe.

    31. May 30, 2016 / 1:16 pm

      I think the monochrome post is my favourite because I could totally see myself wearing most of those things. I can’t believe it’s almost June as well x

      • May 30, 2016 / 3:23 pm

        I can’t believe it either but in just two days it will be June and thanks
