A Wish a Day... #12

If you know me then you know casual wear is not in my vocabulary. Always one to favour a pair of heels & pretty top over a pair of converse & tee. I have wanted a denim shirt for the longest time but always passed as I thought they were just too casual for me... that was until I spotted this one in Zara yesterday! Is it not just the perfect balance of casual & formal - I just love the leopard sleeves! For me, Zara has been continuously on point these past few seasons & the new collections are no exception! I couldn't help but try on EVERYTHING in the store! Unfortunately though, they were sold out of my size in this shirt so I'm off out to see if I can get it elsewhere!

Style Pilot: Transform His Style...

Hands up those of you who have purchased a great piece of clothing for your boyfriend, husband, father or brother, he said he loves it, wore it the day he got it, and then you never saw it again? I've certainly been there! All to often do fashion purchases for men happen that way, and while you probably never admit it to him, it upsets a little and irritates the hell out of you at the same time.

We decided to focus on a specific item, in this case a branded t-shirt, and how this can be a versatile piece in a man’s wardrobe, the perfect gift that can be worn anywhere (or at least most places), and leave him with no excuse not to wear it.

Branded T-Shirts

By branded t-shirt we mean a famous consumer brand, not a t-shirt emblazoned with “Superdry” across the front of it! Most stores are currently carrying great ranges of t-shirts featuring Coca-Cola, Fanta, and Budweiser, among others. Try avoid the alcohol related ones, however, as they can appear a futile attempt to be “manly” rather than looking stylish. Instead, we’ll use the Fanta t-shirt, which is essentially a simple retro t-shirt, featuring the old school Fanta logo on a white, relaxed fit t-shirt.

So how can you wear it three ways?

1. At the Beach

The most simple way to wear this t-shirt is down the beach. Match it up with some stylish, tailored shorts – if you can find a blue to match that in the t-shirt, go for it. Then add some relaxed espadrilles for comfort and style in the heat, finishing off with stylish sunglasses and a straw summer hat.

Much of this outfit is simple and if you are buying the t-shirt, you could probably purchase some of the other items to go with it and build the look for him.

2. Relaxed at Home

For a chilled out Sunday afternoon, lose the shorts and go for light wash boot cut jeans. Jeans are never good for contrasting, so with the light t-shirt go for as light a wash as is possible, going darker if you go for another t-shirt style.

Finish this off by matching up either casual plimsolls or loafers and you're done!

3. Night Out

Thankfully this is an easy outfit to dress up with a trusty blazer if you decide later on Sunday to head to the bar for a drink and a game of pool. Avoid black and go for a navy blue, ideally something with a small pattern such as polka dots, which will give a sophisticated yet relaxed casual look.

There, now he has no excuse not to wear your stylish fashion purchases – just adapt the story here as you need to based on what you have bought for him!

Stylepilot is designed exclusively for men to navigate fashion online, to discover which styles and items to purchase. Stylepilot displays a large collection of jeans, shirts, casual wear & tailoring.

A Wish a Day... #11

Coated denim is everywhere right now & is set to be huge next season. I love the detailing on this particular pair from H&M - the gold zips on the hips & ankles just add that something extra. These would look equally as great with heels & a nice top or with boots & a slouchy knit. I am in love with Swedish blogger Kenza's style right now & this style of trouser is definitely a staple in her closet.

A Wish a Day... #10

I spotted these on the InStyle site the other day & instantly knew I needed them! They remind me so much of the Zara sandals that came out last season... these ones are incredibly similar & I was shocked when I discovered they were from Primark! There are a few pairs from the new collection I'm lusting after actually - you can check them out here! I have quite a few pairs of shoes but not too many that are versatile! Since moving to London I don't tend to wear heels as much as I used too as I am on my feet so much & don't drive everywhere as I did previously. I tend to live in wedges or boots these days. It is always nice to wear a pair of heels from time to time so I am definitely going to pick these up when they are launched - how could I pass up such a great deal?!

In the Shade...


Rose gold & copper tones have been everywhere this year! Not only in accessories & jewellery but also in interiors. This incredibly simple yet striking pendant light from Tom Dixon is my latest copper obsession. The Copper Shade, priced at £340, has been created by exploding a thin layer of pure cooper onto the internal surface of a polycarbonate globe. Resulting in a highly reflective surface that casts a warm metallic glow & reflects light to create the illusion of space. I just love the classic, retro form of the pendant yet somehow it is incredibly contemporary at the same time. I have a vision of a pair of them hanging above my kitchen island in my dream home! They just scream style & glamour! One Day.....







Which piece do you dream of having in your home?

A Wish a Day... #9

In yesterdays 'A Wish a Day' post, I featured this Peplum top & mentioned I would wear it with leather leggings so immediately after posting I went on a hunt as the pair I own now are getting a little worse for wear! :( Literally everywhere is doing leather look leggings / trousers at the moment so really spoiled for choice however, I came across this bargain pair from Missguided! Not somewhere I've ever shopped or would even really consider when shopping online but they popped up when I done a ShopStyle search! I love the panel details & they look super comfy! I'm not convinced the quality will be that great considering the price but hey! They look great so that's all the matters, right?!

P.S I totally recommend using ShopStyle if you are looking for something in particular!
