Phoebe Dynevor's modeling campaign makes me want to dress like I'm in Bridgerton - and now I can

You won't look like you just got done playing the '90s game, Pretty Pretty Princess.

Phoebe Dynevor's modeling campaign makes me want to dress like I'm in Bridgerton - and now I can

Instead of putting together an elaborate runway show customary for most brands during Fashion Week, London-based fashion brand, Self-Portrait showcased its fall '21 collection starring Phoebe Dynevor of the period-drama, Bridgerton.

I couldn't contain my excitement as I gushed over the clothing!

Within the photos, Dynevor, who plays Daphne Bridgerton on the Netflix series, can be seen adorned with gems, bows, sparkles, and lace in likeness to her character.

The actress was also seen wearing pastel and accent colors, puff-sleeves, and corset dresses which was awesome because it is a modern take on the magical world of Regencycore.

I've always appreciated the way this particular style of dressing looked in films and TV shows. Still, anytime I would wear a puff sleeve or try out statement jewelry pieces, I ended up looking like I just got done playing the classic '90s game, Pretty Pretty Princess, instead of a fashionista.

Moreover, Dynevor told British Vogue that working with Self- Portrait's founder and creative director, Han Chong, was a breeze.

"It's funny, I think that it's completely coincidental that there is this amazing thread that runs through what I wore on Bridgerton and Han Chong's collections, which is interesting as he designed the collection before the show had come out," said Dynevor.

"But beyond that, I feel like Self-Portrait really has its eye on a much more modern and real way of dressing."

I second that!

Although Chong designed this 28-piece collection before Bridgerton entered the hearts and romantic dreams of over 82 million viewers, it seems right on par with the show's essence despite the ensembles' modernity.

The collection contains co-ords, dresses, and other items that resemble modern takes on the gowns, waistcoats, and corsets shown on the series.

If you are someone like me who wants to explore the Regencycore look and vibe without looking like you're playing dress-up, take a look at Self-Portrait's fall '21 collection, which will be available in July.

The challenges of summertime parenting - from brain freeze to sandy cars

The best time of year to be a parent, just don't forget sunscreen

Mum of two, bar manager, and lover of wine. And tequila.

I love the sun more now than I ever did because parenting gets a bit easier in nice weather. But of course, the lighter nights and sunshine bring their own challenges too.

My four-year-old says the only thing he doesn't like about summer is brain freeze, which indicates how many ice lollies are consumed in this house. I made my own last summer from sugar-free cordial and may have to do the same again this year because they requested ice lollies for breakfast and haven't stopped asking.

The one work productivity method that actually works wonders for me—and it involves a timer

How to make the most of your time while working from home.

If you're anything like me, you might have felt that working from home has its ebbs and flows.

For one, you can work from the comfort of your own home or now, since restrictions are somewhat lifted in the United States ( I'm in New York City), you could go to a coffee shop if you want to change your scenery.

On the other hand, working from home can have its pitfalls because it can be easy to be distracted by your phone, television, or outside noises.

Essentially, productivity can easily fly out of the window.

But how can it be easier to make the most out of the day while working from home?
