A Pisces themed outfit for my Zodiac themed birthday at the end of the month
As a fellow Piscean, I totally get why deciding on a birthday outfit might be slightly overwhelming ha! Decisiveness is not our best trait after all. A Zodiac themed party is such a great shout and means you’ll have plenty of options to embrace your water sign with sequins, shine and 50 shades of blue galore. Or, if you didn’t want to lean into the fish sign that hard, you could go for a less is more approach with romantic silhouettes – a nod to your creative and artistic side. I’ve put in a couple of dresses for different budgets but I say the occasion calls for big fish energy. May as well splash out eh!
The Olivia & Alice embroidered organza dress is a vibe (and budget-friendly), and easily dressed up or down with boots, DMs or heeled sandals depending on your mood. Top it off with a headband (or hair tinsel could be fun?!) and you’re good to go for your birthday bash. If you’re not feeling a dress, you could also go for a Pisces power suit – I love this blue suit co-ord paired with a matching bralette and heels. Or, you could go the rental route. Try Hurr or By Rotation for a fancy pants wear-once outfit with none of the guilt! Whatever you end up wearing, you’re sure to look the part just by being your wonderful Piscean self. Happy birthday, I hope you have a ball!

Harry Styles Love on Tour concert!
If I could start a styling business purely on helping people find their best outfit for a Harry Styles gig I would because the JOY I felt in putting this outfit together was unmatched. I love how instrumental Harry Lambert (very confusing, this is Mr Styles’ stylist for those who don’t know) has been in influencing trends and the style choices of H fans since he started working with Harry, and there are a few subtle nods to his incredible eye and role in Harry’s visual identity in this look.
Because Love on Tour is a celebration of the Fine Line album, I’ve also played homage to one of my favourite songs Cherry with the corset top and earring choice, which I think makes for a fun but a mature way of celebrating Harry’s music! I’ve added an optional feather boa because if you can’t wear one at HSLOT then when can you, eh!

Girls night out for drinks – Stylish but not too formal
This is my go-to vibe for any night out so I hope I can deliver the goods! I personally think you can’t go wrong with a whole black outfit for any night out, it always looks stylish and also means if you spill any drinks it can’t be seen ha. Firstly, I think key staples for any wardrobe are a pair of leather trousers, a black blazer and some chunky boots.
These three items can be interchangeably styled with different tops and accessories so are super versatile. H&M are the best for affordable but good quality leather trousers and blazers, I swear by them. Chunky flat boots give a more stylish feel to your outfit than trainers, but look equally as good (if not better) as heeled boots or heels, cause who wants their feet hurting halfway through the night? For a top, I’ve gone for a basic long-sleeved ribbed top, which will keep you warmer under the blazer but also bring a more casual feel to the look.
Green is having a real moment so I’ve accessorised with a green shoulder bag from Zara with a chunky gold chain, but you could pick any colour really for the bag, it’s just nice to bring a pop of colour somewhere in the outfit. Jewellery wise I’ve gone gold to tie it in with the bag, but I think silver and gold jewellery both look equally as stylish on a night out. Hope this can inspire some looks, you might already have some of it in your own wardrobe too!

On my honeymoon trip next month, a cruise to the Bahamas. I need fancyish dinner outfit ideas.
I love this outfit quandary as I’ve done a fair few cruises and they’re SO hard to pack for. You need an outfit for breakfast, an outfit for the pool/beach/excursion and an outfit for dinner which of course needs to be casual, smart casual, or formal depending on the dress code for that night. The key to packing light for me is choosing a pair of heels and a bag that can go with most of your evening outfits, unless you’re a real accessories gal there isn’t much point in wasting case space on bags and shoes. I love this black strappy pair you could lace differently around your foot/leg to give a bit of variation.
For a bag you really don’t need to carry much as you’re always in walking distance to your room, I usually only take out my phone, sea pass and lip/powder product so choosing a chic small evening bag that goes with a lot means you can take the stress out of choosing each night. This beaded clutch from OB is gorgeous and you would get SO much wear out of this Vivienne Westwood pouch. As it’s you’re honeymoon I’ve picked out this lovely flowing off-the-shoulder white dress (which will look great with a tab) as you can dress it up and wear it for an evening and then re-purpose it as a beach throw on later in the week. I’ve also picked out a couple of silky dresses that you can throw in the case for an evening look then dress down and re-wear in the day later on in the holiday. I hope you have the most wonderful cruise!
