Over The Knee Boots

Todays post is on the new trend we have notice around whilst shopping on the streets of London.

With the cold weather it makes perfect sense as to why Boots are a favourite by Londoners, New Yorkers and any other could climate city members at the moment.

Here are some inspirational ways to showcase your knee high boots.

1) Gorgeous knee highs with  a dress works superbly well, Combo with tights a large bag and an easy breezy dress.

2) Thigh high boots alongside a soft pastal skirt – an awesome mix.

The hard part about the knee high boots is that it can be rather ‘Pretty Woman’

So keeping the colours fresh, high neck jumper is perfect.

3) All black everything! Tights, jackets, and a skater skirt.

Toned down with the black tights, less skin immediately makes this Pretty woman.

Crochet Dress -Inspiration

With the very slightly, (and I mean, slight ) change in weather here in the UK, and the surprise when I saw the yellow daffodils open in my front garden as I stepped out of the house this morning.

I knew it was time. I knew Spring was imminent and this nasty cold depressing season we call winter is almost on its way out. ‘Bye Felicia’ I hear you say! With that and the blue skies up ahead I thought to myself it is now time to start searching for summer wear.

This thought also came into my mind as a few friends have booked a trip to Dubai in a few weeks so summer outfits is almost certainly important.

With that said, with also  watching a few episodes of reality show it dawned on me that I need a cover up for the beach! but a cute one! One that shows skin but also hides skin (after all its a traditional country)

No more sarongs..

My search landed me to these awesome crochet cover ups.

So Ladies (and gentlemen) here are a few inspirational images to get you ready for summer.

Ways to wear your cover up:

With Boots and a groovy scarf- Light natural and cool!

The campaign named London with love showcases the 12 year old in his first  big festive ad campaign (which I’m sure he got paid handsomely for)

The blond headed boy firs perfectly well in the campaign following his fashion icon mothers foot steps. Christopher Baile hand picked the youngster for the campaign wearing the traditional trench and branded monogrammed checked scarf.

The scarf is for sale at £315.00 whilst the coat can be purchased from £300 – £550.00 like the Wiltshire heritage.

Victoria sure knows how to make a handsome son.

The coat is cute on the 12 year old.. very sophisticated.

Like his father he looks very good in a suit.

Michael kors bag designs

Have you noticed, over the past year Michael Kors bags seem to be everywhere, everyone and and thier mother has a MK bag and the trend seems to be getting more immense. (My mother bought her bag last month!)

Early on in the year, before I noticed the popularity of the MK, I stepped into my local Covent Garden Michael Kors shop in London and instantly fell in love with the beige bag:

This one to be exact:

Michael kors bag beigeIt was tidy- ready for business and play!

I loved it and instantly purchased..

Then over the next months I noticed everyone had the same bag- I can’t say that I was pleased- but its a cute bag so I guess its expected.

 

So this post is a top five list of my favourite MK bags!

Enjoy

 

5.

Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Medium Tote

We think this is a traditional, no nonsense sensible yet sexy bag perfect for meetings, work, after work drinks and the usual city office busy life.

Perfect for the modern business woman.

Miranda Crocodile Medium Tote

This is a luxury bag- one of the more expensive bags by the MK. Crocodile makes the price point of this around the $7000 mark. It is a great bag for those that want that exclusive look- and one that not everyone will have!

Hamilton Large Saffiano Leather Tote

The Tote is a classic bag for the feminine arm and works well with any outfit- Large enough for the files and folders. Traditional Statement piece in a bold solid cadbury purple colour.

Sutton Medium Logo Satchel Bag

Sutton Medium Logo Satchel Bag

The Satchel bag is a classic for many of the other brands so MK of course had to come out with something similar and this print is a favourite. Medium sized perfect for everyday use.

 

1.The Tan Selma

Of course my bag had to be number one! the shape- size- colour everything about the bag is simply worth it.

If your thinking about buying your lady a bag- then the Michael Korrs is a good choice- the price point isn’t ridiculous and you can have a little bit of luxury.

 

 

 

JENNIFER LOPEZ GREEN SUITE

The mother of two Jennifer Lopez waved at photographers as she entered the American Idol set in a bright green- (and I mean Kermit the frog Green)- outfit.

Showcasing her strong abs and fresh blown out hair she looks happy as she attends her judging role.

The Jacket she has zipped up and accessories with two large rings and a bracelet. A very simple look that can be achieved by anyone.

The Christian Louboutin booties are named Mrs Boulglione if you want to get your self a pair. They really are quite sexy!

The boots:

Do you?

Whilst on holiday in turkey I was taken to one of the gold shops and was immediately introduced to the brand Belmond.
Not exactly high end or particularly expensive.. But for that reason I loved it!
I high shine stainless steel incredibly sparkly crystal Swarovski encrusted watch which I can use as an every day run around whilst the Rolex is on clean!
This gorgeous time piece does exactly what it’s meant to.. Capture some attention, tell the time and look good!

Have you found watches off the beaten track that are not big brands but you still love?

So the other day my mother came over with a sly look on her face and a bright red l.e.d light on her wrist. I say sly because she has a small addition with buying electronics and knows I will ask for the reason for her latest purchase. I will admit I behave more like a financial guard than a daughter when it comes to her buying decisions.

After a short while of ignoring the massive red watch elephant in the middle if the room I go ahead and ask her how much it was. Choosing to ignore my normal barrage of question she presses the button and shouts “I’ve walked 3000 steps today”

Slightly intrigued with the bright red display I listen on..

“it tracks my activities, it’s waterproof (not that she swims)” I quickly interject and say it’s waterproof not heat proof you cannot wear it in the sauna.

My mother likes to purchase waterproof mp3 watches for when she’s at the gym sauna..and she has gone through about five of these quite expensive pieces of equipment and it occurred to me the other day is that they are waterproof but not heat proof to such a degree for them to survive the extreme conditions in the sauna which is why they give up hope after a meer two months..
I digress!

She happened to mention it was a polar and then my own knowledge of polar then assisted me in potentially finding out more;

I like to train at the gym with my polar watch. I’ve had two in my life time in six or seven years they have served me well. In fact I cannot workout in the gym without it as I feel I’m not able to track my workouts so it is wasted but of time!

So now I’m more open in listening.

I do some research on the watch and discover it does a fundamental thing the polar F9 doesn’t do.. Tracks every day activities to get a complete overall calorie expenditure.

“I like it already “I think in my head..
It’s sleek design and illuminating red led display which lights up when pressed.

The trophy and congratulations you get for the completion of your daily tasks.
It all seems pretty nifty.
We watch the promo ad which adds to my excitement and it retails at about £80.00 from amazon. Not bad.

To cut a long story short my polar is on it’s way! I’m not sure if I will keep it as I like having my heart rate monitored at the gym and having everything stored on the watch to tell me how hard I trained over the week but the loop is meant to connect to my iphone and keep everything in a more modern manner. It seems like a fantastic idea.
My mum loves telling us how many steps she’s taken in a day so for her she loves it.
It’s aesthetically pleasing on the eyes and mixed in with the right amount of technology it seems like a good purchase for a sport and lifestyle watch.
