Neutral Tone Loungewear from Femme Luxe

Choosing stylish and comfortable neutral colours to wear during Winter Lockdown! 

Hi there! I really find that during lockdown I'm having my dress down days and my days where I want to make a little more effort with my style of the day! 

The Cailleigh cropped jogger loungewear set is a perfect choice of loungewear if you're looking for something cosy and trend led this season and it's a great choice for staying in and doing nothing in particular or for wearing under a stylish winter coat and chunky boots for a leisurely stroll in the park!

 Femme Luxe offer their loungewear in different colours but I do like the camel colour as it will go with a lot of different neutral tones. I knew this was on my list of 'must haves' for lockdown. It washes well and the cropped hoodie is a style I wanted for winter and beyond- I can see me wearing this over cute floral dresses come Spring!

The bottoms are super cosy with fleece on the inside, and sizing up or down in this style works well if you want slim fitting or a looser style of look! The camel set I went true to size with and the bottoms are a slim fit as you can see above.

I really love this in black too, each piece coordinates well with each other and the detailing is on point- the hoodie has a cute side adjustable drawstring waist and a tie at the neck and the bottoms also have a tie drawstring at the waist ensuring comfort at every level!

I decided I would size up in the black set- I normally like my loungewear to be fairly loose and I'm so glad I did- even going up a size I've not compromised on the fit as the joggers are still a slim fit but still feel roomy too- just what you want for an evening relaxing on the sofa! They have a stylish stitched seam down the front plus the perfect cuff for wearing with black ankle boots or hi-tops- such a great trend this season that I'm really enjoying!

Each piece can easily be worn with so many other things already in my wardrobe- the hoodie will be perfect with jeans or leggings and is great under my winter coats as an additional layer! 

I'll wear the bottoms with different colour sweatshirts this winter and I'm sure the sets will take me into Springtime too! I really like having loungewear sets in black and camel- they're so versatile to have in a winter capsule lounging wardrobe!

Thanks to the team at Femme Luxe for keeping me in style this winter lockdown!

Lockdown Loungewear this Winter with FemmeLuxe

Enjoying comfy stylish co-ord's and separates with FemmeLuxe


Hi everyone! When I realised I would be mostly at home for lockdown, I decided what better way to lounge in style than with FemmeLuxe with gorgeous pieces from their stay at home edit!

I have pieces from Autumn that I'm still enjoying wearing and as I've previously chosen neutral colours then I knew that separates such as their joggers meant I could easily co-ordinate and mix and match pieces with style!

When I saw the Cailleigh black boxy cropped jogger loungewear set I knew this was on my list of 'must haves' for lockdown. It does not disappoint- it washes and wears beautifully, is so cosy and comfortable and the cropped hoodie is a style I wanted for winter and with it's cute side adjustable drawstring waist it's such a perfect choice for lounging in style this season!

I sized up in this- I normally like my loungewear to be fairly loose and I'm so glad I did- even going up a size I've not compromised on the fit as the joggers are still a slim fit but feel roomy too-result!! Not only do they have a stylish stitched seam down the front, they also have the perfect cuff for wearing with black ankle boots- such a fabulous trend this winter that I'm really loving!

Each piece can easily be worn with so many other things already in my wardrobe- the hoodie will be perfect with jeans or leggings and is great under my winter jackets as an extra layer! I'll definitely be wearing the joggers with different colour hoodies and sweatshirts that are in lockdown rotation! I really recommend a black co-ord as it's such a versatile set to have and I'll be wearing mine lots in lockdown and beyond!

I've recently started buying cream and sand colour neutrals and when I saw these fleece front pocket Elina joggers I knew they would be a welcome addition to my wardrobe! These are perfectly true to size and unbelievably comfortable.

Not only are they super warm and cosy, they wash well- no shrinkage and minimum creases and they're the perfect neutral piece for mixing colour tones! The pockets are massively stylish and in size too- it's the finishing touches that really draw me to choosing FemmeLuxe pieces over again! 

I already had this cute cropped FemmeLuxe hoodie from Autumn and it's a real favourite of mine- I wear it so much and love how it's perfect for any season just by adding a layer underneath or over the top when necessary!

I opted for some dark green khaki joggers as this was a colour I don't have- these Lizzie joggers are true to size and again just so cosy and co-ordinate well with many neutrals for winter! These particular style jogger have a hidden drawstring which you can see well in my last picture- this is a great style bonus and I love how effective it looks with no strings hanging down!

 It's such a lovely Autumnal day that I'm wearing them with my white oversize t shirt that has also been an invaluable addition to my wardrobe thanks to FemmeLuxe!

I naturally chose dark grey joggers for winter- I don't have this colour and I've got a few grey sweatshirts and jumpers that will go with these perfectly! I love wearing joggers with ankle boots-the cuffs on all their joggers perfectly fit into them and make a stylish change from trainers! On a mild Autumnal day then wearing a hoodie over the shoulders is an effortlessly chic way of elevating a simple casual style and ensures you're carrying that extra layer for when it gets a bit colder!

 I really hope you've enjoyed how I've styled these pieces from FemmeLuxe- a big thanks to the team for providing such stylish and value for money pieces that will have longevity in my loungewear wardrobe for sure! Regular readers of my blog will know that I really enjoy wearing FemmeLuxe as they are consistently good quality and so reasonable too- be sure to check them out for your winter items of choice!!

Its All about the Dress! Transitional Dressing from the High Street

Choosing print dresses for end of Summer and Autumn styling!


Hi everyone! I've noticed that on Instagram that dresses seem to be the most popular go to for effortless style and comfort this Summer! Whether it's a puff sleeve, little black dress, grecian maxi or a flowing floral number, I do think dresses are definitely on many stylish IGers and Fashion bloggers radar this current season!

I really love dresses in Summer although I do tend to gravitate towards jeans and sweaters in Winter! However, I would like to carry on wearing dresses as we leave Summer and go into the next couple of seasons and I've found two dresses that I feel fit this remit very well indeed!

So breaking away from my current Summer habit of buying plain neutrals, I've bought print neutrals which I think are perfect transition choices when heading for the Autumn season! My first buy was in the Marks and Spencer's summer sale earlier this month and with a special offer on my Sparks card too, it was just £4. 

It's a really pretty paisley and floral taupe print dress with tiers and the near maxi length is ideal for wearing with sandals, trainers or boots and also a denim jacket or cardigan whatever the style occasion as the cooler weather approaches:

My second dress was purchased this week- Primark have their new current season instore and I literally picked this up as soon as I walked in! I haven't got a leopard print dress and again, the length and style of this dress make it a perfect transition piece from Summer to Autumn- it's also an ideal Day to Evening dress simply by adding jewellery, a pair of strappy sandals and a statement handbag and I'm good to go! 

Primark do some amazing leopard print clothes every season- I wore a year old leopard print denim skirt not so long ago which is featured on my Instagram feed. If you pick well, you cannot go wrong with Primark clothes and I do enjoy styling and wearing thoughtfully chosen items that I've had year after year!

Also leopard print is such a great print to style with- adding a splash of red or gold or silver carefully curated accessories with it ensures you'll really elevate your chosen leopard print piece with style!

This dress was £15 and I'm delighted to have 2 new High Street purchases that have stood me in at less than £10 each! 
Top Style Tip I do tend to size 1-2 sizes up in Primark- sizing up on certain high street brands ensures the said item looks a lot more stylish and expensive looking and drapes better too!

I do feel that Summer is slowly slipping away- well we've had an amazing one considering it started at the beginning of Lockdown! I doubt I'll be buying anymore items for Summer now unless it's an awesome thrifted one that I will have to have for next Summer!

Will you be wearing dresses this Autumn? Are they your go to for easy styling or will you be back in jeans? I'm a denim lover anyway so whether it's a jacket or skirt or jeans, denim will definitely feature a lot in my Autumn wardrobe- and hopefully dresses will too!!

Summer Linen- choosing preloved Marks and Spencer

Last of my Thrifted Summer Buys! 


Hi everyone! Last Friday was a lovely afternoon spent with the girls, lunching, then charity shopping and then back to the local Wetherspoon's for afternoon dessert and a needed cup of tea!

My Summer thrifted buys this season have been a lot more thought out as to what can be saved for following summers- I really want to have pieces that will transcend trends and that I will enjoy wearing and will keep me cool and looking stylish too!

This first item I found was in a charity shop where they were doing a 3 for 2 offer. I've mentioned in previous Instagram and blogposts that I really do like finding preloved Marks and Spencer linen  it not only keeps you cool but I do feel it's effortlessly stylish and very practical to wear and if you choose neutral colours then separates such as tops, blouses, shorts and trousers can so easily be mixed and matched for lots of different looks within a capsule summer wardrobe. 

I really like the stripe detail and the self belt nicely cinches the waist without feeling too fussy or tight. This will go with some white linen trousers I thrifted in June, plus cut off denim shorts or one of my denim skirts.Whilst thirfting, I try to envisage if an item will go with at least three items in my wardrobe- if it does then there's a good chance I'll buy it!  Also I find linen really doesn't have great hanger appeal, but once tried on it does look and feel nice!

My next find was a second black linen jacket the first one you can see here in July's post 
The difference between the two is this one is a slightly longer length and is an unstructured, unlined style so I can wear it with shorts or trousers for a more relaxed, casual style:


My last find was this awesome vintage cream linen vintage St Michaels Marks and Spencer dress- I think it's from the 80s- it has a dropped waist, soft pleats and detailed horn style buttons. I was unsure about it in the shop, but decided to buy it anyway and once I had tried it on I was so pleased I had snapped it up. I may not get a chance to wear it this Summer but this is a keeper dress that I know I'll wear in future Summers. It's a classic style, comfortable and I've hankered after a cream dress for a while, so this fits the bill perfectly!



So the grand total for all three was £9.50- a little over £3 per item which for Marks and Spencer items I think is awesome! I've built up a great variety of items for Summer dressing  and preloved Marks and Spencer linen features a lot in it. I've four linen shirts, a couple of jackets, two pairs of trousers and a dress that are preloved M&S and I can safely say that they are definitely items that will have longevity in my summer capsule wardrobe.

I constantly culled my wardrobe this season and the things I had left and bought this season are items that I can mix well with each other for all and any occasions. I have bought a lot of plain neutral things these last few months and as a lover of prints and floral items for Summer, I feel I now have a good variety of colour and style in my current wardrobe!

Have you finished your Summer wardrobe shopping this season? My next blogpost will feature a couple of new buys that will be perfect for transitioning to Autumn- stay tuned!

Femme Luxe sets for Autumn Styling

Choosing Animal Print and Neutrals for a Mix and Match Colour Style Pallette


Hi everyone! Although we have been having heatwave weather here in the UK, my thoughts have been to assembling my Autumn wardrobe and incorporating some style basics that I can interchange with each other for a versatile Autumnal capsule wardrobe.

I really love this snake loungewear set by Femme Luxe- it ticks all the boxes for being on trend, comfort and is the perfect transitional loungewear suit as it is light yet warm for those cooler days:

It's a real winner for day to night dressing- just changing trainers to some strappy sandals will instantly elevate this outfit into a stylish set for going for an evening meal or drinks.

I really love a plain white t-shirt and jogger combination and these stone seamed joggers are again a perfect choice for wearing in any season- they are ideal for daytime styles if I'm running errands or going shopping and I really love that these stone colour joggers are the perfect shade of beige as they will go with all colour t-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts! FemmeLuxe do lovely white t-shirts, not only are they comfortable but they really wash and wear well, hence me choosing them time and again!

You may have seen from my previous posts that I'm just a little obsessed with the Estelle loungewear set! I've got it in black, grey and camel and naturally when I saw the brown version I snapped up the chance to style it up! I totally adore the cut, style, fit and comfort of this suit and totally recommend it- it washes and wears like a dream and I'm so pleased to have this one in my wardrobe for the Autumn- plus I'll be able to mix and match the tops and bottoms to create a fully functional capsule loungewear wardrobe!
