Hugged by a Rainbow

Don’t be afraid to go bright go bold and go all out with colour this season. Screw the idea that winter’s meant for drab, just go for fab darling.

The bright wide-leg pants are a must-have this season, I promise.

Definitely invest in a statement coat. Go for red, it never goes out of style.

Velvet is back, baby! And it’s more colourful than ever.

Mustard yellow is a must-have.

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t show you swag with a thigh-high slit. I say go for it.

Like I said, all mustard is a must-have ūüėČ

This season, designers are loving contrast colouring. It’s time to bring out that green sweater and your navy jeans. Pair fabrics and hues that make the each other pop.

Here comes the pin stripper, werd up!

Take over the pinstripes this season, ladies. And go sexy all over it.

0cbf10d842ce2f27167ac8d1a301ee87

Red pinstripes are hot this season. And I gotta admit, they look hot on shirts, pants, momos, everything!

3c83a294d57dd9c11f02a4fa31dbb33e

Wide-legged pants and bomber jackets are a thing.

40bfb44e3fce44b33d322019cb032719

I’m in love with belted jackets this time.

The Kimo-trench!

Embellishments are also big this season. I like the statement they lend to basics.

The Kimo-trench is a perfect layering accessory for when you have no energy but need to make a statement.

Baby Pink and Yellow are the contrast-colour favourites of this season.

The Bomber is a winter staple this season. In velvet, it’s got that #90skid vibe that we love.

Love at first sight with this outfit.

It’s blooming winter, girls. Florals are sprouting up everywhere – clothes, rugs, shawls, accessories!

The jumpsuit kicks ass this fall

You know when your on a night out doing a loo run and you can undo your jumpsuit?¬†Well, this season its worth it.¬†Also, take a friend for some help and loo gossip. There’s nothing like a fun pee with a pal.

Signing off with a little Salem’s Lot ūüėČ

‚ÄúBut when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.‚ÄĚ
‚Äē Stephen King

Bye, my babies!

P.S. –¬†for the perfect cup of Irish¬†coffee, give it some¬†¬†baileys loving, and top it up with some whipped cream. Finally, and quickly, take a big gulp!
