FMS0 STYLE | CHECK MATE




CLICK TO SHOP



Let's rejoice it's nearly the season of the little jacket or blazer and you could not get any cuter than this one from Topshop. Style it simply with a white t-shirt and jeans and a cute pair of slingbacks like these gorgeous ones from Ganni (or you could go budget like me with these from Zara

Remember, jeans are moving on from my beloved skinnies ..... I will always have skinnies in my wardrobe, but to stay on trend let's embrace the straight leg

STYLE TIPS :

If you are short like me wear your straight leg slightly cropped showing a bit of ankle is far more flattering. 

If a straight leg is too much of a departure for you then try a jean that's described as a slim leg rather than a skinny such as Topshop's Baxter jeans

FM40 STYLE | I WANNA BE A GANNI GIRL ....




H A N D S  U P  W H O  W A N T S  T O  B E  A  G A N N I  G I R L?



Yes, me too!

 I have a few pieces on my wish list. 

An affordable designer with some dresses retailing for £150, which is the price you would pay in high end high street stores, such as Whistles for example. In addition to the price point the wearability and effortless style of their pieces, totally appeal.



L E O P A R D  A N D  P O L K A - D O T






I am not known for my love of prints or loud colours, but Ganni seem to do prints really well. One, they pick prints that never date, such as leopard and polka dot and many of the pieces I am lusting after are off the said two prints.

Firstly, the polka dot dress is high on my wish list, perfect for spring race days, weddings and holidays. Secondly, another item perfect for a summer holiday, the leopard long wrap skirt, which would be just stunning with a plain black tee and sandals. Oh and the leopard wrap blouse would be my new "go to" going out top simply accessorised with black jeans and high heels.






SHOP MY GANNI EDIT





Whilst I dream about the dresses, skirts and blouses let's not forget the shoes ..... the shoes, these are FABULOUS .... simply perfect with jeans, a white tee and a black blazer. 

I SO want to be a Ganni girl this summer,  their mission was to fill the niche for wearable, effortless pieces at palatable prices, let's hope they keep the palatable price promise as their pieces gain popularity.....I have a few things I have to save for!

FM40 STYLE | APRÉS-SKI




APRÉS-SKI



Some of you may be off ski-ing this half term (lucky you) and to help you with your Après-ski look Wardrobe Icons did a really good piece and they are the right guys to look for inspiration as both Laura Fantacci and Deborah Brett always look AMAZING on the slopes. 

However, I did think £114 for a velvet hair bow a little excessive so with Wardrobe Icons style sheet my inspiration I thought I would look for cheaper alternatives.




CLICK TO SHOP


Similar pieces to Laura's edit, but all slightly more affordable. The velvet hair bow can be purchased from the wonderful Esty and at £10.50 is far more affordable than £114! You can even make your own classic hair bow with ribbon from good old John Lewis's haberdashery department. Whilst, the Gucci's knitted headbands are the cutest things I have seen for ages, the price tag maybe not. 



SHOP ACCESSORIES





Knitwear is an essential on a ski holiday and perfect for the evenings worn with leather (or leather look leggings .... still loving my Next ones). I have kept my picks quite retro in keeping with the Wardrobe Icons edit and I have found a cheaper alternative to the Ganni rainbow striped jumper (here) whilst not compromising on quality. I certainly wouldn't comprise with one jumper and would definitely splash out on an iconic Bella Freud for a little Ski Chalet evening statement.
Oh, and that Madeleine Thompson onesie I have found on the Outnet is £190 cheaper than Wardrobe Icon's pick. 



SHOP KNITWEAR





Another evening option is a check shirt or a classic denim shirt accessorised as Laura says with that velvet hair bow. I have tried to find similar and cheaper again, of course to the gorgeous Isabel Marant's red check shirt she picked in her edit. 



SHOP SHIRTS





Footwear, very important on a ski holiday and I am not talking those uncomfortable ski boots! Snow boots are now quite fashionable and Isabel Marant would be choice for those with the budget ..... &OtherStories have the quite brilliant homage, which now come in three different colours.
If staying in your hotel by the roaring fire enjoying your fondue or goulash then there would be no need for snow boots and a versatile pair of flats would be perfect ..... who needs Gucci when you can have these at a fraction of the price.



SHOP FOOTWEAR





I have noticed on Instagram the ski look is going back in time and going all retro with a modern feel to it (Pefect Moment ski wear being the "perfect' example) and nothing more retro is a little neck scarf and whilst we would all love a silk Hermes scarf tied around our neck or wrist ..... try Aspinal of London silk scarf for a more affordable option. 

 Happy ski-ing everyone.
