Look of the Day: H&M Jacquard Full Midi Skirt

H&M Jacquard Full Midi Skirt
Today I'm really excited to show you the latest addition to my skirt collection which has turned out to be a real head turner. I literally lost count of how many compliments I got after wearing it twice last week. In case you are wondering, it is one of the latest gems I found in H&M. Yes, you heard me right. The skirt is H&M.

I can honestly say that H&M has truly stepped up their game when it comes to skirts. While many people praised them, I could never find anything that would be long enough to protect my modesty. Everything I tried on before barely covered my bum and I'm not a giant (I'm only 5'9")

However, this yellow jacquard skirt is a perfection. The thickness of the fabric makes it swish when I walk and it doesn't crease, which is important to me as I absolutely hate ironing. I love this skirt so much that I'm thinking about ordering this one which is slightly pricier but equally amazing. Shall or I shall I not? That's the question.

#GirlCrush Subscription Box

#GirlCrush Subscription Box
Raise your hands if you're a fan of subscription boxes? Well, in that case you might be interested to read today's post as I'm about to tell you about a new box I've subscribed to. 

#Girlcrush is a subscription service that prides itself on championing girl bosses. Each box features 8 fashion, beauty and lifestyle products that are tailored to your unique preferences such as a favourite colour, skin type or dress size. In addition, each month 10% of box sale profits are donated to a women's charity. 

As an aspiring female entrepreneur, I thought it was a great concept and I ordered my first box out of curiosity to see what I would find inside. 
Maison Ves candle

Maison Ves #BossBabe candle - Interestingly, all Maison Ves candles feature hashtags in their names. This one has a lovely grapefruit and jasmine scent and retails at £42.
#GirlCrush Subscription Box

Gavelo Los Angeles leggings - I'm on a mission to improve my fitness levels so I'm sure these leggings will get plenty of wear. Although they looked quite small to me when I opened the package, I was somehow able to squeeze my bum into them #littlevictory 
#GirlCrush Subscription Box

Bloody Mary Metal Necklace - This antler necklace made a lovely addition to my jewellery collection. It retails at £80. 
#GirlCrush Subscription Box

Eternal Vibrance Japanese Matcha Green Tea Capsules - These capsules contain matcha green tea leaves and promise to aid weight management and boost metabolism. I haven't tried them yet but I'll let you know how I get on. 
#GirlCrush Subscription Box

Sugar Tits Unicorn Bark - These cute treats satisfied my sweet tooth. 
#GirlCrush Subscription Box
#GirlCrush Subscription Box

Amaki & Be Genki Face Oils - My box featured two different face oils. I have a sensitive and acne prone skin so I haven't tried any of them yet as I'm a bit scared they may make me break out in spots. 
#GirlCrush Subscription Box

Kumari Hair Storage Bag - I admit that I wasn't entirely sure what this bag is for. However, after a Google search, I've realised that it is meant to be a storage for hair extensions. I don't own any but I'm sure I'll figure out how to use it in a different way. 
#GirlCrush Subscription Box

Projekt Glitter Body Glitter- I'm not the biggest fan of covering my body in glitter but I used these glitters for a little crafting project the other day :) 

Overall, I'm really pleased with the box and I can't wait to see what I get in April. However, I hope that in the future all subscribers receive a note listing all items and prices to give us a bit of a background on companies providing their products. It would save time as otherwise I'll need to do a Google search on each brand. 

Have you heard of #GirlCrush box before? Is this a concept you would support? The monthly subscription costs £20. There is also an option to buy a one-off box for £30. 

P.S. Have you heard about my new website launching soon? If you want to know more about Her Hive before the official launch, sign up to my mailing list and follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram :)

Gingham Bell Sleeve Top

Gingham bell sleeve top
Don't you just love it when you stumble upon a real gem while casually browsing shopping racks? Well, this happened to me not long ago when I popped to my local Primark store to kill some time before a meeting. I didn't plan to buy anything but when I laid my eyes on this gorgeous gingham bell sleeve top I knew I had to get it. Can you believe it was only £10? 

I'm sure you all know that gingham has taken the fashion world by storm this season. The print, once associated with tablecloths and summer school uniforms, has got a new lease of life and is pretty much available in all forms. Whether you are looking for a gingham skirt, top or shoes, I guarantee you will find something on your local high street. 

I have a feeling that this gingham bell sleeve top will quickly become a favourite of mine. It strikes a perfect balance between smart and casual so I can't wait to experiment and use it to create different looks. So far I've worn it with a pencil skirt to work and white jeans and khaki shoes on a dressed down day. 

What do you think about the gingham print? Are you wearing it this spring?

Big Announcement - New Project Launching Soon!

New project launching soon
Happy Monday! I hope you're well and didn't miss me too much over the past week. I took a mini break to recharge my batteries and jetted off to Lisbon for a few days. 

Now I'm back and I'm really excited to tell you about a top secret project I've been working on since the beginning of the year. After documenting my personal style on My Daily Wear for over 2 years, I'm ready to take the next step in the digital world...I'm launching an online magazine!  


New project launching soon

I know too well how difficult it may be for some of you to accept your body and let go of insecurities. In the past I often felt like I was ugly and not good enough to deserve happiness. On top of that, I was incredibly shy and didn't believe in my abilities. 

Hence, I've decided to create Her Hive as a platform to inspire women like my old self to be comfortable in their own skin and create a life they want. As I want to create a sense of community, there will be no taboos. I will cover topics such as fashion, health, relationships and mental health issues to name just a few. 

I really hope that you will join me on this journey as I'll be launching the website on 29th May 2017. But don't worry...My Daily Wear is not going to disappear. However, in order to juggle everything, I'll posting two times a week from now on.

New In

Recent fashion buys
Some of you may remember that I was on a self-imposed shopping ban over the past 2 months. I'm proud to report that I made it. Yay! But before you congratulate me on having a strong willpower, I need to confess something - As soon as my ban came to a close, I went on a mini shopping spree. Oops...What can I say? A girl had to prepare her wardrobe for spring. 

Do you want to know what I bought? Then carry on reading...

Dorothy Perkins khaki shoes

Khaki seems to be the new black. So when I spotted these beauties on Dorothy Perkins website, I knew they had to find their way to my collection. 

Dorothy Perkins leopard print heels

Leopard print has really stood the test of time. While I'm not brave to don animal prints from head to toe, I think that every woman should have a pair of heels like that in her wardrobe to jazz up any look. 

Primark cross body bag

Primark has really stepped up their game this season. Can you believe that these small cross body bags were only £5 each. Aren't they cute? 


What do you think of my picks? Have you bought anything recently?

P.S. I'm taking a mini break next week. I should be back with a new post on Friday, 31st March.

Look of the Day: Ruffle Sleeve Dress

ruffle sleeve dress
Happy Monday! I hope you're well. The other day I realised that I haven't done an outfit post in a while. Time and weather simply weren't on my side! :( Luckily sun briefly came out last week so I was finally able to shoot some photos for today's post. 

As you know, ruffles aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I'm not complaining as I'm a huge fan of this feminine detailing. You may have seen one of my ruffled blouses in the post here.

So, when I spotted this bodycon dress featuring ruffled sleeves in Next's sale last December, I knew I had to add it to my collection. There was only one left in my size so that must have been a sign! 

I have to say that it was definitely a good choice as the dress quickly became my workwear staple. I swear I've been wearing it non-stop. I do wash it though. I promise ;)  Despite the bodycon fit, it's extremely comfortable and flattering. Here I paired it with ankle boots but I've worn it with over knee boots before. 

What do you think about ruffles? Are they yay or nay?

My Little #NoFilter Box

My Little #NoFilter Box
Earlier last week I received an email from the team at My Little Box saying that the delivery of this month's box would be delayed due to some problems they have experienced. So when the box arrived at my doorstep a few days later, I was pleasantly surprised as I didn't expect to get it for another week or so. I'm definitely not complaining and I have to say that this is one of my favourite boxes to date.

My Little #NoFilter Box
With the #NoFilter theme, the contents of March's box arrived in a pretty peach toned semi-through make up bag that from now on will accompany me on my travels. Inside the bag I found 4 beauty products that are designed to help you ditch filters and achieve the no makeup-makeup look. Among them there were a sample of Blemish-Less Foundation Primer by Laura Mercier that I can't wait to try as it promises to even out skin tone and help clear those dreaded blemishes; a sample of Ultra HD Loose Powder by Make Up For Ever, nude nail polish from My Little Beauty and a Selfie Foundation Brush for the picture-perfect skin. The brush is super soft and exactly what I needed as the one I'm using at the moment is in a bad state. It's time to chuck it out.

When it comes to lifestyle products, this month we received a pretty notepad which also features some tips on how to achieve perfect skin and a smart phone ring. I have to admit that I wasn't exactly sure what the ring is meant to do but apparently you can stick it onto the back of your phone to securely hold your device without worrying about dropping it or you can use it as a mini-tripod for portrait and landscape photos. Interesting...
