Femme Luxe | ☀️ Summer outfit inspiration 🍹

July 09, 2020 1 Comments
Hello everyone!

I want to start this post with a quick life update - On Thursday the 2nd of July, my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their second born into the world; a handsome baby boy named Gianluca (pronounced: jaan–LEW–kuh)!  I’m an aunt… again!  It's hard to believe his sister Michela is turning five (5) next month.  I remember writing about her arrival, here, on this blog. 

But today’s post is not just about my beautiful niece and nephew.  As you can see from the title, this is a summer outfit inspiration post.  In the past, I used to love to write outfit inspiration posts, so I decided I should bring them back!  You can shop for all the outfits featured in this blog post at Femme Luxe.  If you are a regular reader, you already know how much I love this brand, the quality of their clothes and the unbeatable prices.  You can click on the links below or you could just click on my photos (the larger ones, not the collage)! 

Before we get started, in case you’re wondering why I’m wearing “Wednesday Addams braids”, it’s not exactly a fashion choice; it’s more of an “I can’t stand the heat” choice.  I’m basically experimenting with various braid styles.  So far I tried the basic braid, 2 French braids, 2 braids with a side part, a side braid (both to the left and to the right) and 2 basic braids with a middle part, as you can see in the pictures below.  Braids are the perfect hairstyle for this time of the year.  Plus, all I have to do is put on a trucker hat, and I’m ready to take my pup for a walk or run! 

Enough blabbing, let’s talk fashion!

Today’s featured clothing items are three (3) t-shirts and a fabulous loungewear set!

I love this lime colour so much; I think it suits me!  Do you agree?  It looks better in person than in the pictures.  The colour is very vibrant.  This t-shirt features a 'Champion 96' slogan print, short sleeves and a crew neck.  I pair it with jean shorts for a laid back look.

As I’m sure most of you already know, tie-dye has been around forever, but it's recently made a comeback as one of the biggest fashion trends of 2020.  If you want to keep up with the trends you must have at least one piece of tie-dye in your wardrobe. The easiest way you can incorporate this trend to your wardrobe is with a simple t-shirt, and with Femme Luxe’s affordable prices you can’t go wrong. You can find plenty of tie-dye outfits on the Femme Luxe website; from t-shirts to pants, dresses, co-ord sets, shorts, etc.

This not-so-basic black t-shirt has a short sleeve design with a scoop v neck.  It is a wardrobe must-have this season.  I pair it with patterned maxi skirts, pants and miniskirts such as the one I’m wearing in these photos.  

This co-ord set features a ribbed design, with a long sleeve crop top and a fake pocket detail on the matching leggings.  I love the light material and I also feel like a ninja or a robber or something wearing it.   I adore this formfitting matching set; you certainly won’t go unnoticed in this outfit!

P.S. – All the scratches and bruises you see on my arms and legs are the result of me playing with my pup.  I bruise easily; if any of my loved ones are reading this, don’t worry, I’m fine!

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Which item is your favourite?  Leave a comment and let me know.

Talk to you soon!

Femme Luxe 👕 👖 👚 | Fashion haul

June 18, 2020 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

I'm here today with a new fashion post.  I treated myself to some new clothes and I want to show you all what I got!  There's no therapy like retail therapy, am I right?  As you might have noticed, I'm a huge fan of online shopping.  Where else can you comfortably shop in the middle of the night while in your pyjamas?  There are no lines to wait in or sales assistants to track down to help you with your purchases and you can do your shopping in minutes.  If you are like me and you hate crowds or waiting in line (particularly in these times of social distancing) you probably love shopping online just as much as I do.

One of my absolute favourite online clothing stores is Femme Luxe.  For those of you who are not familiar with Femme Luxe, they are a UK-based online store that offers high-quality clothing at very reasonable prices.  And, at Femme Luxe you can always find the latest trends!

This time I ordered three t-shirts because t-shirts are always a staple in my spring and summer wardrobe.  To be honest, I like to wear t-shirts all year round but especially in the warmer months.  I also got a pair of trousers and another loungewear set.  I’m obsessed with the large selection of loungewear available on Femme Luxe’s website.   And the delivery only took 5 days!

The first item in this haul is a Blue 'Santa Clara' Graphic-Print T-Shirt.   This tee features a luxe 'Santa Clara' slogan graphic print with short sleeves and a crew neck.  I love this t-shirt so much.  It’s very light and comfortable to wear.  It’s ideal to wear in our hot summer weather when the temperatures get quite high.   

The second item in this haul is another graphic tee.  This Coral 'California' Graphic-Print T-Shirt features a luxe 'California' slogan and graphic print with a crew neck and short sleeves.  I love to pair this t-shirt with denim shorts and either sandals or white sneakers, depending on the temperature.  When the temperatures hit or surpass 30°C I can only wear sandals and flip flops!

The third item in this haul is a Pink 'No Bad Vibes' Oversized T-Shirt.   This tee features a 'No Bad Vibes' slogan print in a luxe loose fitting style.  The fabric is a little thick, I love this t-shirt but I’m not planning to wear it during the hot summer days.  However it is perfect to wear for my evening walks with my Maltipoo, Rascal; especially, when we go for a walk on the beach, where it can get a little chilly in the evening.  It’s also ideal for evening BBQs that are so popular in the summertime here in Malta!  

The fourth item is a pair of trousers.  I already own a pair of black Cargo Slim Fit Trousers and I love them so much that this time I got the same model in a different colour.  The Stone Cargo Slim Fit Trousers features multiple pockets and elasticated ankle cuffs.  As I told you previously about the black pants, they fit perfectly and are very comfortable to wear.  These trousers are a very versatile item to have in your wardrobe; you can either dress them down by pairing them with trainers or dress them up by pairing with heels.

The fifth and last item in today’s haul is the Rose V-Neck Boxy Loungewear Set.  I love this set!  This two-piece features a matching comfy t-shirt and straight leg jogger trousers.  The reason I love these loungewear sets so much is that apart for being SO comfortable, the can be paired with flats or heels and the shoes change the whole vibe.  Therefore, loungewear sets are very versatile; you can wear them anywhere! 

And that is the end of this fashion haul.

Femme Luxe | Slogan tees & loungewear set

May 30, 2020 1 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today is my 35th birthday and I'm back with another fashion blog post!!  I already posted my thoughts about turning thirty-five in my last blog post.  If you haven’t read it already, go ahead and check it out: Turning35!  To “celebrate” my milestone birthday, I decided there is no better way than showing you the latest items I got from one of my absolute favourite online clothing stores.  A couple of days ago I received an order I made from Femme Luxe online store.   

Femme Luxe is a UK-based women’s clothing store.  In a previous post, I wrote about Femme Luxe and featured five outfits which I adore: three dresses, a pair of trousers and a loungewear set.  If you want to learn more about the online store and also want to see more items I picked from Femme Luxe, check out my previous collaboration with them here.  This time I'm showing you two slogan t-shirts and another loungewear set.   

To be totally honest with you, usually, I’m not a fan of slogan t-shirts.  I have avoided wearing slogan tees for a long time.  But, right now, the slogan t-shirt is unavoidable.  These days the catwalk and the high street are full of declarations.  Slogan tees are in right now.  Got something to say?  Feeling some type of way?  Say it loud and proud with a slogan t-shirt.  I decide to join the herd and wear, my convictions in large writing… on my clothing.

Black 'Saving The World' Slogan Print T-Shirt - Scout

To my surprise, I was instantly drawn to two slogans t-shirts on the website and I had to get them for myself.  If you did not like them before, give them a try.  If you are going for the “jeans and a nice top” vibe you’ll love these tops!  Plus, if you are not an introvert like me, sharing your opinion, or someone else’s, on your shirt is a guaranteed conversation starter.

The first top I chose is a black t-shirt featuring a crew neck design with a slogan print “Saving The World”.  I try my very best every day. 😜  The top I’m wearing in the photo above is a size L.  I ordered a large size because I wanted it to fit loosely.  Since this is an oversized t-shirt, I tied a knot in the front to make it look cuter.  I just love it!  

Black 'In A World Where You Can Be Anything Be Kind' Print Crew Neck T-Shirt - Cordelia

The second top is also a black t-shirt, this one featuring an “In A World Where You Can Be Anything Be Kind” slogan print with a crew neck in a loose-fitting style.  What a great message, right?  The top I’m wearing in the photo above is a size M.  It's a perfect fit!

Grey Frill Jumper Loungewear Set - Amora

The third item I got is a super cute, grey loungewear co-ord set.  I’m in love with this Grey Frill Jumper Loungewear Set.  This is a gorgeous frill detailed jumper in a super soft material, complete with matching long length bottoms.  I got mine in a size S/M.  The set fits me perfectly and it is so comfortable.  It's the perfect outfit to lounge in.

Grey Frill Jumper Loungewear Set - Amora

Here's a closer look at the frill detail... 💗

And that is the end of my Femme Luxe mini haul.  Check out their website today.  As I told you in my previous post, I sincerely do recommend you order some glamorous and yet, affordable pieces.  You will not be disappointed!
