Post-lockdown fashion with Femme Luxe

Fashion

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been putting a lot more effort into my sense of style since lockdown restrictions have lifted. In the last few weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of finally seeing the beautiful faces of my friends and family members and I have to say, I found every possible excuse to get dolled up for the occasion.

Thanks to Femme Luxe Fashion I didn’t have to look too hard to make that possible. As you might have read in my last fashion post about Femme Luxe, it is an influencer-inspired fashion brand that provides budget-friends statement pieces for your wardrobe. 

So whether you’re meeting someone for a friendly coffee or have a date lined up, Femme Luxe has plenty of affordable options that will still make you look glam 🙂

Black Sweet But Psycho Print T-Shirt

RRP: €13,95 €6,95 (51% OFF)

This Black Sweet But Psycho Print T-shirt was unsurprisingly my top pick for my post-lockdown wardrobe! I love a good statement tee, especially when it is as bold (and accurate) as this one. It is available in black and white so you can pretty much mix and match to your heart’s content. I’ve matched it with ripped shorts but also jeans. The good thing about a statement print tee is you can style it however you like! 🙂

White Thigh Split Shirt Mini Dress 

€38,95 €19,95 (49% OFF)

Anyone who knows me would tell you that I love an oversized shirt dress. So much so that in the lead up to my 27th birthday I went around looking for a men’s shirt to wear as a dress with high heels – I know, Carrie Bradshaw was clearly an influence on this fashion choice at one point or another.

Dare I say it, this White Thigh Split Shirt Mini Dress would give Carrie a run for her money. The tie front detail and split on the side really give it a girlie but sexy chic look. If you like to be a bit more colourful, then fear not as it is available in navy and khaki as well. 

Grey Crop Loungewear Set

€45,95 €19,95 (57% OFF)

This Grey Crop Loungewear Set can be dressed up and dressed down, thanks to the skin tight fit and material. It sits so beautifully on the lower half of the body and the elasticated waistband helps give an illusion of an hourglass figure – a girl’s gotta take it where she can! It is quite warm on as well so you don’t have to worry about feeling too cold with a crop top 🙂

Black Satin Cuffed High Waisted Joggers

€40,95 €20,95 (49% OFF)

I have yet to match high heels with a pair of joggers. However, the more I see it on other people, the more the idea is becoming attractive to me. These Black Satin Cuffed High Waisted Joggers are perfect for those who are well versed in creating a glam look with a pair of joggers. They have a high waisted design and a cuffed leg in a luxe satin material – you really can’t go wrong! Cherry on top? They’re available in blush, lilac and stone. Speaking of stone…

Stone Off The Shoulder Knitted Loungewear 

€49,95 €24,95 (51% OFF)

This Stone Off The Shoulder Knitted Loungewear Set is ideal for a laid back look that is low key luxe. It has a gorgeous off the shoulder long sleeved crop top with matching shorts. I love the material and overall comfort that comes with this look. It is also available in lilac and blue.

So there you have it, my recent fashion picks from Femme Luxe Fashion. Let me know which of these looks is your fave! 🙂

Quarantine fashion with Femme Luxe

Fashion

femme luxe white t shirt

Femme Luxe is an influencer-inspired fashion brand that provides trendy pieces for affordable prices. As we enter a new phase of lockdown, I’ve decided to share some of my fashion picks from the brand.

I’ll be honest…in the earlier days of lockdown, I spent very few of my weekdays dressed in my pyjamas or overly casual wear as it didn’t motivate me to be productive at all. So when the opportunity came for me to choose a few fashionable pieces from Femme Luxe for this review, I knew exactly what type of clothes I would go for…

life's a peach femme luxe

White Life’s a Peach Slogan Crop Top – Tinley Regular price€13,95 € Sale 8,95

This ‘Life’s a Peach’ Slogan Crop Top comes in both black and white. I decided to opt for the white as I feel a white Tee with a cute slogan is a statement piece for every gal’s wardrobe. This classic cropped style teams perfectly white ripped denim shorts or a pair of jeans. But if you dare to be bold, then a bit of faux leather wouldn’t hurt anyone 🙂

khaki-ruched-front-long-sleeve-leggings-loungewear-set femme luxe

Khaki Ruched Front Long Sleeve Leggings Loungewear Set – Rosa Regular price€47,95 Sale €21,95

This loungewear set was an absolute no brainer for me as khaki is one of those colours that’s always complimented my skin tone – regardless of how dark I can get in the summer. Not only did I find the long sleeve with the ruched front to be both warm and comfortable. But I also thought it sat perfectly on my cleavage.

The matching skinny leggings were a bit on the big side for me as I didn’t find the fit true to size. Thankfully, I was able to roll it around my waist and still make them feel comfortable.

grey-black-oversized-hoodie-shorts-loungewear-set femme luxe

Charcoal Oversized Hoodie Shorts Loungewear Set – Ariyah Regular price€47,95 Sale €20,95

I don’t have a lot of gangsta moments, but my immediate love for this was certainly one! This comfy Charcoal Oversized Hoodie with Shorts Loungewear Set comes in multiple colours. Unlike the khaki loungewear set, this two-piece tracksuit is sleeveless, but it has an oversized (gangsta) hood to keep you warm.

The matching drawstring pull shorts has a contrast stripe which could be paired with your favourite runners…or house slippers 🙂

Wine-belted-bodycon-midi-dress femme luxe

Wine Belted Bodycon Midi Wrap Dress – Angelica Regular price€38,95 Sale €19,95

Since some of weekends consisted of getting dolled up for a lovely Zoom night with the girls, I thought it was paramount to get some dressier pieces too. This Wine Belted Bodycon Midi Wrap Dress made the cut for obvious reasons.

It is body hugging yet classy and both the mid length and front detail adds to its elegance. The off the shoulder cut and sleeves make this dress even more sophisticated.

tan-ribbed-wrap femme luxe

Tan Ribbed Wrap Bat Wing Bodycon Mini Dress – Bailey Regular price€38,95 €18,95

Last but not least, we have thus stunning Tan Ribbed Wrap Bat Wing Bodycon Mini Dress. It has beautiful horizontal ribbed pattern with a wrap front and bat wing detail. Regardless if you’re on a Zoom call or not, this statement piece could be teamed with some killer heels for maximum impact.

Overall, the styles that I chose from Femme Luxe and the affordable prices have made me a force to be reckoned with – at least during quarantine! As someone who generally gets my fashion pieces from high end stores, I haven’t seen much reason in spending a ridiculous amount of money on fancy clothes that won’t even get to make it past my 5 km radius.

Jacamo Menswear: gifts for him for under £100

Fashion

“Any occasion Jacamo fits.”

I was recently asked to do a styling challenge with a menswear clothing brand called Jacamo.* While I would normally jump at a chance of strutting my stuff in the most fashionable and classiest of clothing – the operative word being classiest – I was in two minds about doing this challenge in particular.

Why? It involved styling a menswear fashion look with a small budget. As someone who is not versed at picking out clothes for men or keeping my shopping budget at a minimum, I knew it would be quite the challenge.

Thankfully, any concerns I had were quickly silenced when I browsed the Jacamo website. Whether you are shopping for your boyfriend, brother, father or son,  your shopping experience can be made that much easier by shopping on Jacamo.

The menswear brand stocks a variety of styles and a wide range of sizes from S-5XL, catering to men of all shapes and sizes and at such affordable prices. Added bonus? You can find pieces from household names in fashion such as Levi’s, Reebok, Adidas and Nike, to name just a few.

So without further ado, here are my top picks from the Jacamo 2218 collection 🙂

Top picks

Jacamo black zip neck polo long & Black label belted smart stretch shorts

Reebok Royal CL – Jog trainers

Black label belted smart stretch shorts Close Up

Flat lay of top picks from SS18 Jacamo collection

After hours of scrolling through the Jacamo website, I finally decided what to go for. I opted for a smart-casual look for my younger brother. The polo shirt paired with the chino shorts really helped me achieve the look I was going for and the branded shoes just completed the outfit perfectly.

Shop the Look

PRICE: £20.00

This polo from Jacamo is described as having a ‘colour-block base fabric with raglan sleeves and an O-ring zip neck detail.’ Shop here.

PRICE: £30.00

These shorts are from the Black label by Jacamo. They are give a smart yet casual look. Shop here. 

PRICE: £45.00

These stylish Reebok trainers have a mid sole cushion and an out sole that grips the ground where ever you go. Shop here.

Whoever would have thought I’d pull off this challenge! The overall damage (using the word very loosely here) was only £95.00. With the bank holiday weekend sale, the shorts have gone down to £24.00 pricing this outfit at only  £89.00 – talk about a bargain!

If you also want to find a stylish outfit from Jacamo for the favourite men in your life then be sure to follow Jacamo.co.uk 🙂

£5 or less – why you should shop at LOTD.COM

Fashion

I was recently introduced to LOTD.com and since then, it has been my go-to site for making last minute online purchases. While I usually plan my outfit weeks before an upcoming event, there have been times when I’ve needed to make quick decisions on what to to wear before a big celebration. Thankfully, Look Of The Day has always been there to help me with this.

Seeing that I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with this brand so far, I’ve decided to share my top 5 reasons for why you should shop at LOTD.COM or at least check out their fabulous pieces! 🙂

1. Affordable fashion

LOTD have a £5 or less collection where you can shop some of the hottest fashion trends without breaking the bank! This budget friendly collection features season essentials from dresses to bodysuits, to co-ords and more! Best part? You can find bikini sets for as little as £3 – it’s a yes from me!

2. Trendy picks

Between their festival collection and occasion wear, I doubt you will miss a single fashion trend with LOTD this summer. Think ditsy-print dresses, ripped denim jeans and tassel crop tops! If  you have to stay on the glamorous side of things because wedding bells are ringing, you can choose from their glam dress collection.

3. Decent quality

The quality of the clothes from LOTD are generally good for the most part. However, the sizing can be a hit or miss depending on the garments the buy. Ensuring your items are a good fit can be a bit of a gamble, but considering the price you pay, very little is lost if it doesn’t work out! Besides, LOTD offer FREE UK returns!

4. Fast delivery

On the upside, delivery time is incredibly fast! Standard delivery to Ireland  is said to take between 3 – 5 working days. However, anytime I’ve ordered from LOTD my parcel arrived in 2 days! Shipping cost to the Emerald Isle can be a bit of a pain simply because it can sometimes cost more than the garment itself! But if you order multiple items as I have in the past, the £5.99 shipping fee doesn’t feel too bad! 🙂

5. Value for money

Any purchase you make on LOTD.com will give you value for your money. Between the budget friendly prices, the hot fashionable picks and fast delivery, I doubt you will have any regrets shopping at LOTD.com! if you’ve already shopped here then I would love to hear from you!
