#OOTD In Search of Spring!

The calendar may say “spring,” but that doesn’t mean the weather is letting up any time soon. So as we sulk at the thought of continuous layering and heavy coat that seems to never end, we can always use our imagination to pretend spring has indeed sprung on us. Today’s look features the current trending Baker Boy Hat and the ongoing Basket – Weave Bag trend that just won’t quit.

By the way, I am currently on the look out for more affordable basket – weave bags to feature on my blog, so get ready to feast your eyes on some gorgeous delights!! 🙂

Back to my current look! While preparing for the shoot I initially intended on leaving the heavy coat behind to create a more spring vibe look but the freezing weather had a different plan for me. Luckily, I was able to get few shots without the coat which I was happy with. That being said I definitely think I will be holding onto my fur for as long as I can, well, until the weather lightens up. #sorrydonatella (this isn’t a real fur though so it’s ok ha!!


So, I am in love with this outfit and couldn’t be more excited that I can style the entire look two ways!

The First look was casual, keeping it simple yet cute enough for that errand runs.

Second look was simply to glam up the casual look for a night out. Either way, I wanted to show that you can easily dress up any look by simply choosing the right pair of heels, accessories that compliments that look and the right attitude.

#OOTD Corduroy Jacket

Hey darlings!! So I know I haven’t been posting lately…. it’s been a seriously slow Month but I really need to pick my blog game and boost it up again! Meanwhile behind the scene, I have been embracing the 70s style.

Yes ladies and Gents, it’s back to the vintage for me. ‘Out with the old and in with the new old baby’!! What do you guys think of this Corduroy Jacket? I initially had my eye on a different colour of this bad boy but after series of fitting room try on I went with the green colour. I am glad I did though because I can easily style this jacket with practically anything.

For today’s #ootd I went for a classic chic but retro look. Pairing this jacket with my favourite holiday shorts from H&M and thigh high boots from ASOS.

Bandeau Sweater Top Style Express


Hello again gorgeous babes!! I hope you had a lovely weekend. So lately I have been quite obsessed with my latest buy from ZARA. Yes, this stunning Bandeau Sweater Top is completely giving me all sorts of life and I am loving it ha!


Although it isn’t your typical Bandeau, I love that idea of having to change the style of a particular look so freely to match whatever look you are going for!! The soft elastic bottom frame has been tailored to either show off a subtle hint of midriff or as seen on the images it can simply be worn as a full look. The neckline unlike the off shoulder tops, allows you to move more freely without having to readjust.




As Seen on me:

This sweater paired with MANGO Ruffle flared trousers and styled to showcase two different looks.

First look was dressed down with a loafer from Tkmaxx to give it that Casual setting while the second look was paired with one of my favourite heels from BEBO Shoes.

For the love of Red



Hello darlings! It’s been way too long; I do hope your having a pleasant week so far 😊. Alright, so those of you that follow my Instagram page @stephstyleguide know I was on an amazing vacation!! Yes, I spent 2 weeks in Santorini and (boy) did I love it. I was thinking of writing a blog about my trip but I don’t think writing about It would do it enough justice plus honestly I was just being plain lazy lol. All I can say is when you do decide to visit Greece, it is a must to wear comfortable shoes and outfit as to see the beauty requires plenty of walking ‘I kid you not’!!

So back to reality now and guys I have to tell you, I am in love with this year seasonal colours. To find out more on this, check out ELLE using below link where I have been keeping up on the latest trends.




OK, I have been particularly obsessing over the colour red and of course 70s plaid! Since I love bright bold colours you know I wasn’t going to miss out on wearing the #powerred as it’s called in Elle. Tell me, what colour has tickled your fancy this #fall season?

For today’s look I paired my favourite red Blazer with a checked trouser. I love this look because it has that urban edge to it. Don’t you think?! You can either dress it up by pairing this look with your fav black patent stiletto or go casual as seen on me. Either way you are still guaranteed to look good. I don’t know how y’all do it keeping those sneakers white I have been tip toeing around trying but failing miserably to keep them as clean.

Anyways I hope you all have a fantastic week 🙂

Puff Sleeves Style

Hi lovelies, I hope you had a good weekend! I am sort of excited to get on with the new week, why you ask? Because it is Pay – Day on Friday my friends 😂. Yes, I can finally stop with the window shopping and walk into a shop like a boss knowing I can buy what I want but not really buying what I want. You know what I mean? Ha!!

So I’ve gotta ask this question, what are your thoughts on the return of puffy sleeves style this year? I mean, it was mostly known as a style halfway between the 80s and the Victorian era wasn’t it? So, what made it so popular back then and why the return now? to answer my own questions I felt it was something I had to try on for the answer to click!

I ordered this top a few weeks back and it was one of those blouses where it was either going to be a hit or miss as to what it looked like once it was on – I don’t know about you all, but it’s difficult for me to really go by how the model on the shopping site looks in anything! My body type is completely opposite from theirs, so it’s very hard to tell what an outfit would look like on a regular person, so I was interested to try it out!

My main attraction was the neckline which had silver rings at the side ( by the way doesn’t it look like earrings just waiting to be worn?) oh and of course the puffy arm which was slightly different to what was already out there!! My only disclaimer – I had to wear a belt to give it shape because I felt it needed that. But I do know there are other puff styles out there. It all depends on the Look you are going for, your outfit may look whimsical, feminine, and modern so you must select ones that fit your fashion preferences!


One more note – This top is currently on seasonal offer so although I missed it, you could still get your hands on it for a reasonable price.
