How to Wear The Smart Casual Dress Code

When a dress code is mentioned, it’s always slightly a panicked situation on whether you’ll be wearing the right thing and following these unwritten rules. Whether it’s smart, casual or even black tie, it can be a little confusing. The most confusing dress code of them all is “smart casual” – What does it even mean?! I thought I’d breakdown what Smart Casual means to me with Chums. First things first, the best thing to do is assess the type of event or party you’ve been invited to before following these rules on how to nail the dress code. As I…

My (late) Summer 2018 Fashion Wishlist

It’s been a while since my last fashion wishlist but I haven’t half done a lot of window shopping recently. It’s pretty late in the game to be looking at Summer items but I’m planning to book a holiday at the end of September. So I’ve obviously been looking at some clothes for my holiday and seeing what catches my eye. With all this lovely weather in the UK that we’ve had, it seems strange to be thinking about Autumn but I am ready for the boots and cosy jumpers! Back to Summery items for my holiday, the wishlist just…

Getting Back In Shape, Activewear Wishlist

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. I’m re-joining the gym. It’s being a hot minute since I last was in the gym. I think it’s time to get back into it as I’ve got an upcoming holiday and my diet is pretty terrible. I’m not really an unfit person but I’d definitely like to be more in shape. Obviously, If I’m getting back into it, I need some new Activewear pieces. I always find if you’ve got some new comfy yet stylish activewear pieces, it makes you want to wear them and actually go to the gym. I’ve been looking on…

Pretty Polka Dot Prints at Primark

Over the last couple of months, I don’t think I could even call myself a Fashion Blogger as there has certainly been a lack of content in that area. As I declared way back in April on my last outfit post, I’m back with lots of outfits and fashion content. This time, I promise I’ll actually follow through! Today’s outfit is a new favourite of mine from Primark. That shop is certainly on point at the moment. I’ve got a few other posts coming up all featuring dresses from Primark. At £13, you literally can’t go wrong and they are…

My Style Edit: Dressing For The Races

One of my favourite things to do every year is going to The Races. I absolutely love dressing up and making a day out of it. York is my nearest Racecourse and I’ve been going most years since I was about 10. Even when I was younger, what I wore to the races was super important to me. I’ve posted a few #Throwback images on Twitter from various outfits worn to the races! Thank me later! If you’re attending Royal Ascot there will usually be a dress code. For example; this year women were required to wear dresses with straps…
