The Perfect Summer Outfit!

Summer post

Hello everyone! My name is Olivia, Elle’s sister, and I am so excited to announce that Stride with Pride is now going to be a joint venture! So without further ado, here’s my very first post! I hope you like it!

With the hour changing back tonight it’s that time of year again when the weather starts to pick up and summer planning gets well and truly underway! As I was feeling extra excited about summer last night, I decided to look back over photos from my trip to Greece in September. Oh how I miss those glorious days spent reading my book down at the beach, walking downtown for my morning coffee and exploring the tiny little streets and alleyways!

 I was therefore inspired to pick out some items I feel would be perfect for a summer’s holiday! What I like most about these pieces I’ve picked out is that they can very easily be worn with a lot of different garments with the subtle colours and variety of materials oozing casual sophistication.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Talk soon Xx Liv

Louise Roe



Myself and Louise Roe are two women of the same mind… We don’t shy away from a bit of pattern! What I love about Louise is that she isn’t afraid to take risks when she puts an outfit together, whether this be by adding some colour or by making great use of fabulous accessories. I also love Louise’s courage to experiment with different hairstyles and make up looks…if only we all had a team of people to get us ready! That’s all for today. Let me know who your style icons are in the comment section below.

It’s all in the detail

I had a break from college this week so I finally got around to doing a clear out of my wardrobe. Three full black bags later and this long overdue task was completed. I can now see my clothes again which makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier! During the clear out I found these jeans hiding at the back of my wardrobe. I bought them in French Connection during a trip to London about two years ago and this was only their second outing. It’s funny how you just forget about certain pieces in  your wardrobe when it becomes unorganised. It’s all about the detail with these jeans. That little bit of sparkle takes them from your ordinary pair of jeans and turns them into something a bit more special.

I know it’s not the most appealing task to face, but I strongly advise any of you with overflowing, cluttered wardrobes to sort through the mess… you never know what gem pieces you’ll come across again!

That’s all for today. I hope everyone is having a lovely relaxing Sunday… you know what they say “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content”.
