Good morning my sweet loves and welcome to another week!
A few weeks ago I entered a competition via Twitter with one of my faaaaaaavourite local stores: Mr Price. To my absolute delight and surprise; I was one of the lucky winners and so Friday began with the most adorable delivery of a shopping voucher and three deeeeelish macaroons. To further improve Friday, I flew home to PE to spend a last weekend with my big brother before he leaves back to the Caribbean. With a booming hangover and a gift card, I spent Saturday afternoon roaming my neighbourhood Mr Price and stumbled upon this most divine tennis-inspired shift dress. And so this blog post was born…
The sports trend has became a staple of runways and high street retail collections; with each season embracing an alteration of the athletic look. We have ‘Sports Lux’, ‘Sporty Chic’ and ‘Tomboy Tailoring’ (actually that last one I just made up but I think we can all imagine it gracing the pages of a fashion magazine). Just like last week’s post explained; adopting a major trend can be daunting because of its difference but there are ways to interpret styles and work them into your existing wardrobe in a way that is fun, easy and inclined to last more than one season. This season we had the Wimbledon Whites look featured in a number of magazines and look-books, and as much as I love the crisp edginess of all white everything; it doesn’t look too good on someone like me (I am extremely fair-skinned and look washed out if in too much white or nudes). So when I saw this colour-blocked version of a tennis shift at Mr Price; I knew I had to try it. And voila; it is absolutely stunning (if I do say so myself).
To continue the sporty trend, I paired my new acquisition with a pair of classic Converse, and to add that element of chic I wore a sleek ponytail and nude lipstick. It’s all very simple really, and I think that’s the key to nailing this look.
Once again, thank you to Mr Price for being the raddest, most brilliant retailer. Definitely go have a look at what’s in store or shop online here.

PS: Please can we have a minute to appreciate the hilarity of asking your technologically impaired mother to shoot your blog post. “Which button do I press because I can’t see a bloody thing!”
If you can’t laugh at yourself during a blog shoot in your driveway with your mother, then you are taking life and fashion WAY to seriously.
Until next time xxx
