‘Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel’ 👑

The notorious Chanel inspired tweed Jacket.. A staple piece since the 1920’s, and still around today, the eternal wardrobe capsule.  

However, this one is Zara, a little bit kinder on the bank balance.. The struggle.

I don’t know about you but my worst nightmare is my battle with my wardrobe, a 100 things in front of me but furiously nothing to wear, then the temper tantrums come, life ended, can’t put a damn outfit together for the life of me. Dark times.. Never approach a woman having a fight with her wardrobe, BIG mistake.

So this is what I love about outfits like these, the jacket is your outfit! Everything else just fits around it! LBD; check, Black heels; check, Trusty handbag; check, GOOD TO GO!

P.S. Chanel had a great name, who knew?!

When life gives you lemons.. buy a tshirt with lemons on?

I loved this outfit this week, it was for a mid week dinner, because lord knows, we aren’t just allowed to enjoy ourselves on a weekend! Everyone deserves a glass of something on a Wednesday.

I love pairing a funky print tshirt with a good pair of tailored trousers, I live for this look!

The trousers in the photo literally do not owe me a penny, I have worn them so much, they’re so easy to wear and go with absolutely everything. That’s why I have them in white too..

My best advice with smart casual looks like these? Your best weapon is always accessories. Everyone has their staple pieces of jewellery to make your look come to life. And mine is my beloved Loewe necklace and a good pair of statement earrings. The ones I am wearing in the photo are newbies that I am trying out and fit in with this astronomical trend we can see coming through to our favourite shops. Moons and stars 🌛

The life of Me

Welcome!

So, I’ve started a blog.. Not because I want to jump on the ‘blog bandwagon’ but because I am a sort of ‘Shopaholic’.

I want this to be a space where I share my ideas and LOVE of clothes with the big wide world. Fashion is my thing, and if I can share this with people and they like what I do then I have a good thing going.

In a world of such influential social media, especially Instagram, I feel like we see so many beautiful people in their beautiful clothes and we’re all thinking, “I HAVE TO HAVE THAT OUTFIT”.. And its never tagged!

So this is what I am setting out to do, I want to carry on being the mad shopaholic that I am, but I want to share this with all you lovely people on my way. I will post about latest purchases, where I got them from to all the new latest trends coming through whether we can get them designer or even better, HIGH STREET.

So that’s me, Gabrielle and I am here to tell you all my fashion secrets, stay posted xo
