Now THIS is something I just can't keep to myself and I can't wait to tell you all about it.  I recently discovered Uterqüe and it's pretty likely you haven't heard of it yet, or maybe you have.  Even if you haven't been living under a rock, like me, it's not a brand you will have come across often or ever!  

Uterqüe is Zara's sister brand, owned by Inditex, one of the largest fashion retailers in the world. Launched in 2008 and just like Zara, a place to find trendy fashion forward pieces.  With it being a much smaller, exclusive brand you'll find that although the prices are slightly higher so is the quality. What started out as an accessories brand has now evolved to create stunning Ready to Wear collections set to stand the test of time.

Now that I know all about it, you can be certain that I'll be shopping on Uterqüe pretty soon.  I've already favourited everything that's caught my eye and as a life long fan of Zara, this brand most definitely speaks my style language.

I had to include a bonus look with the T-shirt because I couldn't resist styling it up with this stunning fuschia chenille blazer finished off with a rhinestone button.  A gorgeous statement piece perfect for turning the above daytime look into an evening ready outfit.

What are your thoughts on Uterqüe and have you ever shopped there?  Tell all in the comments below, I'd love to know.

ZARA'S SISTER BRAND YOU NEVER KNEW EXISTED

Ok, so you're probably wondering how that sum actually makes any sense.  How can sustainable fashion and Winter florals equal more money?  Let me explain......

Winter florals are curently trending this season but that doesn't mean you need to go out and buy yourself another dress.  You can if you want to, as long as you rewear it and rework it into your already existing wardrobe.  The great thing about Winter florals is that you can wear your Summer dresses this season too.  And I'm sure we all have them stored away whilst we impatiently wait for the warmer months.

With my styling tips, you won't need to wait any longer.  In fact, you can start wearing them now, even though there's no sign of the temperatures increasing, I'm going to show you how you can rework your Summer wear into your Winter warodrobe.

Before I do that, I have a confession to make.  I must admit I am an outfit repeater and there's nothing wrong with that, I mean just look at Jane Fonda.  She wore her red Elie Saab dress to this years Oscars!  The same one she wore to Cannes in 2014.  If she can do it, then so can we!

You're saving money and you're saving the planet.  Two birds, one stone.  Can't be bad, can it?!   Now I'm no Greta Thunberg (still got a long way to go) but that girl, she's onto something and we should be on board any way we can.  Every little helps (Sorry, Tesco, but I had to).

Fashion is way too fast these days, you wear something for 5 minutes and it's already time to move onto something else.  Which is probably one of the reasons you're struggling to save but it's such a waste too.  When it comes to fashion, pick the pieces you're going to get the most wear out of, the ones you can style in lots of ways so that you are saving money, and it's worth investing in good quality pieces that will stand the test of time too.

Sustainable fashion isn't just for the climate change activists.  And even though it's about wearing the same thing over and over again, it doesn't mean you have to wear it the same way over and over again.  Which is why florals aren't just for Summer, they're for life.

ZARA Floral Print Dress (£49.99) / H&M Jeans (£34.99) / MANGO Contrast Flap Trench (£139.99) / & OTHER STORIES Pointed Stiletto Boots( £120.00)

ZARA Floral Print Dress (£49.99) / MONKI Utility Trench (£65.00) / ZARA Tom & Jerry Sweatshirt (£25.99) / VANS Authentic Shoes (£52.00)

ZARA Floral Print Dress (£49.99) / TOPSHOP Brown Check Blazer (£69.00) / ZARA Soft Crossbody Bag (£29.99) / ZARA Leather Slingback Heels (£55.99)

In all honesty, realistically, it's not possible to buy a new outfit almost everyday.  It's just not......well, sustainable.  Which is why you should take your time and choose wisely.  Invest in basic, timeless pieces that work well with each other.  That can be teamed with statement pieces too, like floral dresses for example, to create a whole new look.

As you can see, you can dress it down with pumps, jeans and even a sweatshirt or smarten it up with a classic blazer and heels.  Whichever way you choose, florals are proving to be a huge hit this season, so it's time to dust off your summer dresses and give them a new lease of life.

SUSTAINABLE FASHION + WINTER FLORALS = MORE MONEY

I have some exciting news I just can't wait to share with you.  Remember the blue Dior Oblique Embroidered Dior Book Tote?  Yes, the one that all the bloggers have, the one that's done its rounds on Instagram and had it's fair share of vacations to the best luxury destinations one can only dream of?  Yup, that one!

For most of us the Dior Oblique Tote is way over our budget and it's a dream we can only ever imagine.  But not for much longer.  Like Zara's version of the Bottega Veneta Pouch Bag, Mango just released their Dior dupe you really don't want to ditch.

Not only do they have a larger version, there's also a mini bag too.  Perfect for all your needs and both with very affordable price tags, it's definitely worth the spend.

KHAITE The Shelby Dress
I'm always on the hunt for my next midi or maxi dress purchase and if I'm honest I usually see a lot of mini dresses that I love.  But I'm always left with the false hope that maybe one day these brands that I'm always spending my money on will bring out a longer version.  A version that I CAN wear.

Not anymore though, because this unexpected combination of a mini dress layered with a pair of straight leg jeans is the new way to get the best of both in 2020.

Effortlessly styled by New York based KHAITE, in their Spring/Summer 2020 collection, I think this just proves it's not about what you wear, it's how you style it.

I've put together 3 outfits to help you get inspired the next time you find yourself stuck between really loving something but having to resist.  Now you can.

H&M Jeans (£34.99) / ZARA Printed Draped Dress (£29.99) // MANGO Braided Bag (£35.99) // TOPSHOP Green Knot Mules (£42.00)
TOPSHOP Washed Black Jeans (£40.00) // ZARA Textured Dress (£29.99) // ZARA Leather Mini Crossbody Bag (£29.99) // ZARA Soft Leather Pumps (£95.99)
TOPSHOP Washed Black Jeans (£40.00) // ZARA Mini Draped Dress (£29.99) // MANGO Mini Croc Effect Bag (£19.99) // MANGO Leather Braided Mules (£59.99)



THE MINI DRESS COMBO YOU THOUGHT YOU'D NEVER WEAR

This season we're going to be seeing lots of denim on display in many forms of clothing.  Although it's an everyday staple in many peoples wardrobes and worn often, we're going to be wearing it in ways we're not usually accustomed to.

They're fresh, and indulge all our preferences because let's be honest here, denim brings out our overly fussy particular side, especially when it comes to comfort.  And for those of us who prefer skirts and dresses to the usual jeans, there's lots to choose from for you too.

You'll notice lots of girly details like frills, flares and ruffles with delicate lace to enhance those feminine features.  The softer denim is set to be this Summer's biggest trend so I did the hard work for you and picked out some of my favourite pieces you should be investing in.








WAREHOUSE Ruffle Detail Shirt (£20.00) // SELECTED Long Denim Shirt (£90.00) // H&M Shirt Dress (£25.00) // H&M Fitted Denim Shirt (£19.99) // SELECTED Wrap Dress (£110.00)

I shared this Denim Trend Alert on my Instagram stories and since it was so popular, I decided to write up a post about it too.  If you want to stay up to date with the latest trends and fashion inspiration, give me a follow on Instagram, for all the news so you don't miss anything!  See you there x
