• {Fashion Monday} Stylish and Comfortable

    Stylish and comfortable describes how I choose to dress 90% of the time. I work in an office so I must have some resemblance of stylish and comfortable worker. I am also one of those people who needs to be comfortable 💯 percent of the time. This can present a challenge at times but that is the fun of it all, playing dress up.


    Recently I was in Venice for a weekend getaway and I found the perfect outfit for touring in. We had planned our getaway such that we would spend a lot of time exploring this glorious city. Though we didn’t manage to explore Milan, we explored Venice extensively and I love that I was stylish and comfortable throughout. 

    Though I didn’t put much effort into this outfit, all I needed was to be warm enough, stylish and comfortable. All the pieces I used I have had for forever and it was nice to recycle them.

    Stylish and Comfortable Outfit pieces

    New Look leather jacket and ripped jeans.

    Addidas trainers.

    H&M scarf.

    Cheapass sunglasses.

    Primark camisole top and cardigan.

    Bag, unknown {was a present}.

    Though I was unsure of how the weather would be in Venice, I decided to dress like I was home in  England. My fellow Brits know how chilly it can get here, I am glad to say it paid off as it was a bit chilly in Venice. A couples hours into our tour of Venice and the Islands it warmed up but I still didn’t have to take anything off. I do claim many of the time that I don’t always dress for the weather. Lately though I have been putting more of an effort into checking the weather forecast before I leave the house.

    I also realised after walking for over 4 hours exploring Venice that choosing trainers was the best thing ever. I was stylish and comfortable in my own way without much effort. In hindsight it was also ingenious of me to pack my sunglasses as it became quite sunny. I had such a lovely time in Venice and I can not wait to share all about it in the next few days.

      You look so stylish and fab in these outfits. Finding a balance between the cold weather and looking good can be very challenging. Taking the sunglasses with you was a very well calculated plan. I wouldn’t have thought of that in a million years.

      • November 18, 2016 / 11:47 pm

        Aww thanks Esther, I was very optimistic and hopeful that we would have some winter sun

      Sometimes it’s difficult to remain stylish in the cold, but you’ve done it so well!

      • November 18, 2016 / 11:46 pm

    17. November 15, 2016 / 9:52 am

      I always wear trainers when I’m exploring somewhere new too – I hate wearing shoes that hurt my feet! x

      • November 17, 2016 / 6:12 am

        I am the same, nothing worse than exploring an amazing place but with painful feet

    18. November 15, 2016 / 9:10 am

      I always wear some sort of trainer when I go away as they’re so much more comfortable x

      • November 17, 2016 / 6:11 am

        Same here, since I am always out and about exploring

      You look both stylish and comfy! I always prefer to wear comfortable pair of shoes when I travel. I had a mistake once when I wore a pair of wedges when I traveled from Philippines to the US. It was such a bad idea because airports in the US are way bigger than here. When I arrived at the hotel, my feet felt really sore.

      • November 17, 2016 / 6:11 am

        Oh my goodness I can only imagine what you must have felt like. I try to go sleep mode when I am taking long haul flights
