FEMME LUXE LOCKDOWN HAUL IV

Now yes, for sure the last lockdown haul this year! Got a lot of cute items this time, wintery ones and got started with the lilac which is my obsession of the year. My next haul will be full of lilac as well so watch this space!

Make sure you follow my 21buttons account as I post all of my outfits there, these included!

First item of the day is this Lilac Cropped Hoodie & High Waisted Jogger Loungewear Set – Alia nothing more than a lilac dream for these lockdown days, I was jumping up and down when I got it I didn’t know it was possible to get so excited from lilac things, but apparently it is. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Coincidentally it’s cherry blossom season and I was planning to go for a walk around London to see the blooms so I got this beautiful Pink Lace Floral High Neck Cuffed Mesh Organza Top – Sammy. It is flowy, it is flowery, and it is pink, what’s more to ask for? I styled it with this beautiful knit skirt also part of a set from Femme Luxe which I haven’t stopped wearing ever since!

The knit sweater and long skirt are the Stone Cable Knit Midi Skirt Co-ord – Bess. I was super impressed with the quality of this set which is top knotch! Definitely recommend getting it, looks very glamorous and expensive. It’s also quite cozy and keeps you nice and warm in this sudden winter within spring. And I will be using it loads!

Last one was to ensure that I feel super cute, being a sucker for puff sleeves I just couldn’t help getting this White Puff Long Sleeve Zip Up Top – Mandee. It fits really nicely and is very versatile, I’m wearing it with biker shorts in the photo, but it would do nice with jeans or basically any skirt, yes, any skirt would do.

What do you think about this haul? I just think Femme Luxe keeps getting better and that I really look forward to my next one. Lilac things will be included for sure.

FEMME LUXE LOCKDOWN HAUL III

Hopefully the last lockdown haul this year? Fingers crossed! Taking advantage of the last days locked down and bored at home to do a Femme Luxe haul. Got 3 items this time.

Make sure you follow my 21buttons account as I post all of my outfits there, these included!

So what’s in store for this time? The Black Ruched Midi Bodycon Dress – Taylor is a go to item, it can be made shorter, longer, and worn with a T-Shirt below if it’s winter as it’s still cold in the UK. I did wear it as it is to a party back home, black dresses are wardrobe staples aren’t they? I do like playing with them to make them less boring as I’m not really the type of person that wears black. I love the fact that it can be worn with a long sleeve t-shirt.

Second this time, is the Wine Slinky Balloon Sleeve Bardot Mini Dress – Meghan. Also really cute but too short for me wearing it on its own, I just don’t feel so comfortable and have to be constantly pulling it down. Also I can’t wear it as it’s modelled in the website because I have small breasts so it falls down. I need to tape the boob area to make it work. I quite like it off shoulder thought, looks amazing.

As it’s very short however it can be used as a t-shirt and it looks even nicer, with jeans, or any type of trousers and that makes it winter friendly. This is the Wine Slinky Balloon Sleeve Bardot Mini Dress – Meghan worn as a t-shirt:

Last, got the White & Black Marble Print Cuffed Joggers – Caiden. I quite like marbled stuff although I must admit mostly for home decor purposes but I was willing to try this one out and I think it turned out pretty good! I can’t stopping using it now specially when working from home and just wanting to be comfy. It is super comfy! Find Femme Luxe joggers are just mega super comfy and I love them because of that. I’d have them in all colours. Just need to be careful I don’t look like I’m wearing PJs though as they do look a little bit too comfy. Wearing make up should solve it.

What do you think about this Femme Luxe haul?

MADEIRA BUCKET LIST & TRAVEL GUIDE

WHY TO VISIT MADEIRA

Simple, Madeira is known as the “island of eternal spring”! The reason it’s known that way is that Madeira’s subtropical climate makes it a great destination to visit all year round. August and September are the hottest months when temperatures reach around 26 degrees centigrade but it’s a popular spot to seek out winter sunshine as temperatures hover around 19 degrees in January and February. So if you want to avoid the crowds, visit on those months! But it’s not only the weather, Madeira has been deemed the Hawaii of Europe. There’s a lot to do, the main thing being hiking which is the best way to enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

HOW TO GET TO AND AROUND MADEIRA

Madeira is part of Portugal but this island is closer to Africa than it is to Europe. It is a four-hour flight away from London and Paris. I took a direct flight to Madeira from London which I found using Skyscanner and there are direct flights from Europe’s main cities.

Renting a car is a good way to get around Madeira but not absolutely necessary. Tours are cheap, so if you stay in Funchal you can just take day tours and explore Funchal on foot. Some hikes are accesible by bus as well.

FEMME LUXE LOCKDOWN HAUL II

We are still locked down in London so for my collaboration with Femme Luxe I’m still going mostly for lounge wear to wear during the lockdown, a christmassy dress and a beautiful statement top (also red & christmassy)!

Make sure you follow my 21buttons account as I post all of my outfits there, these included!

As last time I started with lounge wear as we are locked down (yikes!) so this is what I’m wearing most of the time. I hang out on these at home and have already used them to go for runs in the cold london weather. They are really comfy and warm so definitely will get these in more colours next time.
