Finding The Perfect Outfit- (feat. new Smiggle products!)



Hello everyone! Today is going to be a bit of a different post, but I'm very excited about it!

I'm going to guide you through some steps to finding your perfect outfit!

Firstly, you will need to consider the occasion where you will wear your outfit. The occasion will determine whether your outfit will be formal/informal, suitable for outdoors etc. 



Then, which colours do you want to wear? Experiment with which colours suit you best! Don't stick to the generic rules of monochrome in the winter and florals in the spring, bright colours in the summer- mix it up and bit and dare to add a splash of colour to your winter wardrobe etc!


What about the style of clothes you are going to wear? There are SO many different styles around nowadays- it can be a bit overwhelming with so much to choose from! Choose whatever style suits your body shape and personality! Here are a few options I thought of:


Then there's the acessories that you have to take into consideration! You can colour coordinate them to your outfit or totally make it clash- either can work!


But of course you don't have to think up a whole new outfit idea on your own! You can take inspiration from many different places. I've shown a few examples of where you can take inspiration from below: 


To round it up, to find the perfect outfit for any occasion it will take you different steps to plan it with several things to consider along the way! However, always make sure that you feel comfortable and happy in whatever you are wearing!


Now, for the second part of this post...

To draw some of these pictures showing some examples of stages to find the perfect outfit I used some products from Smiggle

Smiggle are an Australian brand who sell colourful, fun, fashion-forward stationery and accessories. Their name 'Smiggle' came from a mixture of a smile and a giggle! So cute!

Smiggle are soon landing in the UK! Their first store is opening on 20th February in Westfield, Stratford. Then they are opening further stores around the country, including in Reading, Brighton, Kingston. Very exciting!

They kindly sent me a bundle of their products for me to try out before their store launch.

Being a bit of a stationery geek I was thrilled to recieve some new goodies! As this is the year of my life that I am drowning in exams and controlled assessments, stationery is a must. Their products are so colourful and exciting which makes revising so much more interesting and enjoyable!


Also, any stationery that smells nice is definitely my cup of tea! (Ooh can I have a perfume smelling like their highlighters already?! wow)



They literally have every single colour pen you could ever imagine- neon, glitter, pastels... you name it!


My sister caught me singing (along to my Disney song collection, haha!) with my Smiggle headphones. Every one keeps pointing out that they're the exact same colour as my eyes haha! 


This is me being a bit of a dork- but making my sister (my photographer) smile and giggle ;)


My little sister used the Smiggle gel pens to draw my logo for me- Love it! The colours are really bright and colourful. Thanks Flora :)



Thank you to Smiggle for sending me these awesome products and also to Mel for contacting me and just generally being lovely :)

Have a great day, wherever you are!
