The Chill Girl’s Guide: The Evergreen Trend Not Going Anywhere In 2019

The Chill Girl’s Guide: The Evergreen Trend Not Going Anywhere In 2019

I love those trends that go in and then don’t go out.
Thats the key, here. We all have those overgrowing collections of pieces spilling out of our wardrobes (guilty as charged!), but what about the evergreen ones that continue to spill out of our shelves every season, every year?
The ones that you can rely on, that are worth the (not-so-many) pennies!
The ones that pop up on every IT Fashion Girl’s Instagram account. Every. Single. Year.
Now, thats my kinda jam!

So I love when a style trend comes in, hangs around and, better yet, comes back around the next year…. and the next year….. and then the next.
But, I’m a tough judge, I don’t just select any item into this list.
To really qualify as an ever-green style item of clothing:

1. It’s gotta be cute – Check!
2. It’s gotta be something you can pull out in Summer, Autumn, Winter 7 Spring! – Check!
3. You have to look at it and say “Oh yeah, that actually goes super cute with… [insert item of clothing you have worn 3298489 times] t least 1-2 times a week. – Check, Check, Check!

Because evergreen has to mean efficient.
Euuughhhh. You don’t even know the joy it gives me to Check all 3 of those boxes.
And thats because it’s exactly what we’re here to discuss today. Checks.
(I know, I know, that intro was spot on).
Checked skirts, if we’re getting super-duper specific. Which, of course we are.

The checked skirt is an undying breed. Its cute enough to give kinda-cute Clueless vibes, but Badass-y enough to wear in your edgy moment (my all day erryyyday vibe).
Stockings/tights underneath and a cosy jacket for the cooler months and perfectly puffed sleeves or a simple T for the summer.
Its like the Checked Skirt is the real MVP for style staples.

I found my super-affordable and perfectly true-to-size checked skirt from Verge Girl.
And I’m wearing her, very nearly 3 times a week.
She just gets along with everything, like the Cool Girl at school that everyone’s friends with.

She’s simple, she’s effective and, Hell! Thats basically the definition of The Chill Girl’s Guide.


How do you style checked skirts? Or is it checked trousers you’re into (I have a growing collection of them, too… send help!!).
Orrrrrrr, even better yet, is there an even better Evergreen style staple I’m missing?
– Come on! Give me a reason to buy something else fun!
Let me know below.

Thanks for comin’ to Chill!
Your girl,

The Chill Girl’s Guide: 3 Ways You Need To Be Styling Puffed Sleeves In 2019.

Hey, have you heard theres a new style Top Dog in town?
She’s a beauty, she suits all and she is perfectly created to nail Chill Girl Chic out to dinner & Chill Girl Casual going to grab an Almond Capp.
She’s our new Bestie, she is called Puff Sleeves and pulling her off in both Chic and Casual moments is detrimental to your style feed this year.

The Chill Girl’s Guide: The 3 Newest Midseason Skin & Beauty Necessities For 2019 – From The Pros!

If you’re skin and beauty obsessed, like moi, then you know that when Autumn and Spring creep around (sunshine… where did you go?) and all of a sudden your favourite cleanser just isn’t doing that thing it usually does anymore, ‘annoying’ is basically the most incredible Fist World Problem understatement of all time.

We spend all summer nailing the dewy foundation look without it sweating off and finally our dry winter lip routine means we DIY sugar scrub our peckers into the silky smooth pouters they should be.
It takes a mission, but we always get there.
But we get there just in time for the season to change, which means it’s juuuust in time for us to be ready to go on a hunt for the next product thats going to balance our imbalances.
Whoever said beauty is pain, was kind of correct. But I thoroughly think they should have added:
“Beauty is pain + an ever-lasting battle between seasons + hormones + moods + sleep cycles + sun exposure + genetics + loads (and I mean LOADS) of $$$.
Doesn’t that sound a little bit more relatable?

Chill Girl’s Guide to: Why you don’t have Healthy Blonde Hair.

Chill Girl’s Guide to: Why you don’t have  Healthy Blonde Hair.

You know I am OCD about haircare?
Oh, you didn’t know? Well, I am. And its serious.

Its probably ever since I became obsessed with growing my infamous 2010 shaved hair situation.
Or it could be after I decided to dye my naturally blonde hair jet black for 8 years (also one to add to the hair mistake list) and went from Black to Blonde in a couple of months.
