Christmas Gift Guide - "Style My Family" with Bad Rhino and Yours Clothing

As much as I love shopping, Christmas shopping is a whole different kettle o' fish.  I used to find it theraputic but as time goes on and people get older, I have found that shopping for my nearest and dearest has become one of the most daunting experiences of the year. 

I mean every body already HAS everything!


Everyone needs clothes!
(unless you are me...I don't need clothes...I have far too many clothes...*please don't buy me clothes*)

So I turned to Yours Clothing and Bad Rhino to help me find an outfit for my Mum, Dad, my other half and my daughter.

Shop Mum's Look: Top//Leggings//Boots
Mum has always been stylish and loves to dress up and look glam, but unfortunately due to her health she doesn't often get the chance to dress up.  Mum needs a comfortable outfit that still looks sassy, so I have chosen a pair of leggings, a comfy pair of boots and a gorgeous sparkly top (which comes with a free necklace!)  Mum likes to wear a longer top and she prefers flowy to fitted so I think this outfit is perfect for her.
Shop Andy's outfit: Jeans//Hoodie//T-Shirt//Plimsolls

Andy's personal style is very laid back and casual.  He spends all day in a suit so when he is at home his go-to look is jeans, hoodie and trainers. I didn't want to stray too far away from what I know he would feel comfortable wearing. Often he lets me loose when it comes to his clothes shopping, after all it's me that needs to look at him most ;)  So I would love to see him wearing this outfit.

Shop Dad's outfit: Jumper & Shirt Combo//Cord Trousers//Boat Shoes
Dad is pretty simple when it comes to clothing, he gets clothes pretty much every year and rarely bats an eyelid regardless of what we buy him. If I had to describe his style, I would say that he is quite casual on a day to day basis but when it comes to special occasions he will opt for a smart shirt and trousers. So I have chosen an outfit which I think is the best of both worlds.

Shop Mya's Outfit: Cold Shoulder Top//Coat//Black Jeans//Boots
Shopping for Mya is tough - I guess shopping for any teen isn't easy as they can be fickle.  Mya's style screams casual but when she glams up she goes all out.  I have chosen an outfit that I think Mya would happily rock of a weekend.  This outfit still has a young feel to it, but I actually love this outfit so much that I may buy it for myself too! We could be twinsies!!

Why don't you try and style your's actually quite fun!!!

Winter Wardrobe must haves with Yours Clothing

Autumn is almost done and Winter is finally here guys, so it's time to rotate the wardrobe. Time for layers and boots and warm tones to make those chilly days a little warmer.

I always reach for rich vibrant colours to brighten up my outfits in the winter months. I hate being cold, so I prefer to layer items up.   Every winter wardrobe needs a few staples so I'm gonna show you three items which I am LIVING for from Yours Clothing.

The first one is this gorgeous fur trim coat, which is really versatile. I spend all my week at work so I need have a coat that is smart enough to wear to office as well as being able to wear it out on the town. This coat ticks all my boxes, plus it is SO warm! 


There are four shades which sum up Autumn for me, wine, deep green, burnt orange and MUSTARD so you know that this jumper was never gonna pass me by. It's perfect and it fits like a dream. I love the fact that it's basically a bardot jumper but with these cutesy little bows which add a lil' summat extra!

Finally I'm gonna talk about those of you who know me well will have heard about #BOOTGATE.  If you are reading this and thinking WTF is #BOOTGATE?? Well I will sum up real quick for comedic value...

Kat went to All Star Lanes for a Hen do wearing a pair of size 6 wide fit boots.
Kat gave said bowling alley her boots in exchange for a pair of bowling shoes.
Kat returned an hour later and All Star Lanes had managed to give Kat's size 6 wide fit boots to someone else and left her with exactly the same boots but in a size 5 and not wide fit!

KAT WORE BOWLING SHOES HOME! #Bootgate - ladies and gentlemen!

I am so angry - I LOVED THOSE BOOTS! Surely you guys understand that the struggle is real when it comes to finding boots that werk, so needless to say I am on the hunt for a new pair of thigh high wide fit boots which are as comfy as my missing boots. 

These babies are running a close second.  They don't fall down which is a huge winner for me and thigh highs are a must have in my winter wardrobe to team up with leggings, skinny jeans or even a cute little mini skirt (avec tights - cos... COLD!)

I have all these items lined up for an outfit for this weekend so you will get to see how I styled this outfit all together.

What are your winter wardrobe must haves?

Save Vs Splurge with Yours Clothing

When you shop are you ever struck with that inner turmoil of whether you should save some money or splurge out on that gorgeous dress?  Yeah me too, like all the time, every time I turn on my laptop...or start scrolling on my phone!

So I am gonna show you two dresses which are perfect for an autumn occasion; one a saver option whereas the other is more of a splurge.

You can tell me which one you prefer...

Can you guess which one is which?

No? Okay okay...I'll tell ya!

Red Lace Dress//Black Floral Dress
The black number is Chi Chi dress - so this is a concession line that Yours Clothing sells.  I absolutely adore Chi Chi's designs they are always so eye catching and beautifully cut to really compliment your curves. This dress retails at £75.00 so this dress is the SPLURGE.  Did you get it right?

The red lace skater is one of those dresses that doesn't look very appealing in the stock photo, but when you put it on, it's a knock out number!  This dress retails at just £36.99 making this the SAVER.  

In my opinion as much as I love the design of the Chi Chi number I actually prefer the red skater. It makes me feel so girly. For the lower price it doesn't feel of a lesser quality.  They both fit equally well, they both are comfortable and eye-catching but when you can get such a gorgeous little dress for under half the price I would find it pretty hard to justify paying the extra for the Chi Chi.

Would you Save or Splurge??
