Guest Post: Arum Lilea

Hi everyone! I’m Leanne from Arum Lilea and I’m so excited to be filling in for Amy today while she is busy lying on the beach in Antigua making us all incredibly jealous. Hope you’re having catching a gorgeous tan, girl! Can’t wait to see all your pictures!

For those of you who haven't visited my blog before, I'm South African and still at university studying Masters' in Law.  I'm crazy about travelling.  I love reading Amy's recipes because I'm always looking for something new to cook or bake. Amy and I both started blogging around the same time and we were each other's first couple followers!

I’ve got two ways with chambray to share with you today. My first look is an easy casual weekend outfit perfect for running errands. I paired my shirt with coloured jeans and flats before I threw on a bauble necklace and a whole bunch of bracelets. In my second outfit, I wanted to step it up a notch so I wore my shirt with a white skirt, heels, a collar pin, pearls and an easy up-do. Let me know what you think!

Thank you, Amy, for letting me take over Cupcakes & Couture for a day!


  1. Love both looks! I wonder where the first bag is from xo

  2. Both looks are adorable!! I finally ordered myself a chambray shirt and am waiting so impatiently for it to arrive. I'm shocked how well it dresses up in the second outfit! Love it!


  3. I adore both looks–especially that second one! It's amazing how many ways you can make chambray work in a wardrobe!

  4. both of these looks are so cute! i love a chambray paired with a fun and girlie skirt :)


  5. Thanks so much, Amy! You're such a sweetheart. I hope we get to hear every detail of your trip the moment you get back!! And happy birthday too xxx

  7. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”. toxic baby formula lawyer
