Chanelling Homer Now I know people probably think that blue jeans + white shirt = Homer Simpson, but I’m here to show you how even the most simple combos can be jazzed up (or down). I think if I had to pick one outfit for the rest of my life to wear it would definitely be this, though maybe I’d switch out the white shirt for a white t-shirt? The look varies so much depending on how much you button up the shirt, are you going for a deep v? or are you going prim and proper, right to the top? The shoes of course make a huge difference, are you opting for trainers? Heels? Boots? – obviously I went for boots but you already knew that because I am a self confessed creature of habit! I’d say that the jeans have a huge impact on what the look is too, some of my favourite looks are the baggy, ridiculously ripped boyfriend jeans styled with some killer heels and a shirt erring on the sexy side with up to 3 button undone, risk-ay! Inspo Get The Look Here’s some of my favourite blue jeans ‘n’ white shirts! I have to admit that She Inside definitely do the best selection of jeans! I mean, I’ve never ordered jeans from there before so I can’t comment on how well they fit but they look pretty great and I’ve seen a few other bloggers wearing them so they’re definitely next up on my hit list – slash when I’m not broke! Topshop is 100% where I get my jeans from when I just want a pair I can rely on, I know their jeans and I know my size, Jamie’s are the best for skinnies! Loving the smokey effect ones below, I’m sure you’ve noticed I practically live in jeans so you can never have enough!

Love for the Choker

I’m not sure if what I’m talking about is actually a choker, I guess a choker’s just a tight necklace of some kind so yes, yes it is! I never really saw myself as a chocker lover and when the trend came out I have to say I put it down to a trend for teenage girls and thought nothing more of it. The constant girl crush that is Danielle Bernstein has brought it back to my attention recently through the gift that is instagram and I have to say, I’m liking it. Maybe it’s just the way she wears it, maybe it’s just the way she wears anything? Firstly, I love the choker from Rumi Neely’s brand AREYOUAMI and I’m pretty sure thats the one I’ve got my heart set on, but I also love the velvet ones. Either way my favourites are definitely the ones that tie in a bow – it makes it less harsh and they also look great layered a la Danielle Bernstein.Photos taken from Danielle Bernstein’s Instagram Account ‘weworewhat’ I’ve linked some of my favourites below that I would buy if I had the money, however money is becoming an issue since I’ve booked travelling and then my car insurance decided to come out the week I didn’t get paid so I’m contemplating a homemade one. I mean how hard could it be? If a ribbon would work then I may be able to steal some from my sisters workshop whilst she’s sleeping (unless she’s reading this) if not, leather from a haberdashery shop? Watch this space!

Winter Coat Inspiration

If you follow me on any form of social media then you’ll be all too aware that I’ve been bed bound with the flu for the past week (and still going) so it will come as no surprise that I’ve decided to do a few inspirational posts. i.e. – posts I can do without taking my own photographs! I can’t lie, I do always love doing these posts but just a pre warning here, they are extremely dangerous to the bank account, unless of course you hate my style in which case. . why are you here? Anyway! Here’s some of the winter coats I’ve been loving on Pinterest at the moment, including these insane fur coats, I’m in love. Please please please can Zara do another amazing Acne dupe but in fur? this one is too amazing! Love the idea of a fur bomber! Who doesn’t need a camel coat? Investment piece right? Love the ankle duster styles though with my lanky legs I’m going to have to go to somewhere like long tall sally to achieve this look! I’m pretty sure I’ve got one of these on the way in the post – oops! I’m so excited about the next part because I’ve learnt to do something so cool! you can click on the pictures (or plus signs if they’re still there? I’m working on getting rid of them!) and it will take you straight to the coat I’ve got a picture of! Seriously proud of myself for learning to do that (it was not hard). Anyway, these are my favourites, love the mink coloured fur from Forever 21! I’ve also put them all together below! Make sure you follow me on Bloglovin, I’ve got so much exciting stuff to come when I’m well enough to shoot so you don’t want to miss out!

Khaki Love

I don’t know if you’ve noticed (you definitely have) but I’m just a tad on the obsessive side when it comes to the colour khaki. I can’t stop buying it, I have issues and I need to know, is it okay to wear a khaki coat with a matching jumper and matching shoes? Anyway, seen as it’s all I love at the moment I thought I would do a post dedicated to my colour of the moment and truely indulge in some khaki lovin’.

Autumn Winter Inspiration

I am absolutely loving the weather change because we all know that with a weather change, comes a wardrobe change. Nothing drastic will be happening in my wardrobe colour wise ( as you can tell from my inspirational photos!!) but I’m all about texture when it comes to autumn winter. I’m super excited about suede this season, I’m currently shopping around for a beautiful suede coat, slash saving my pennies for a beautiful suede coat. I’m sure if you’ve been following my blog you’ll know how much I love my suede biker so I can tell I’ll get so much wear out of a coat version! I love this look with the knitted two piece, I don’t really know if I can pull it off to be honest. I’m pretty safe when it comes to the bottom half and tend to stick to jeans or a mini skirt. I’m definitely going to try and branch out though! Maybe this season will be the time for me!This is definitely my favourite board I put together, is anyone else loving the texture of these teddy bear coats? It’s like a chicer version of the fur coat. The cut of this one is incredible and I’m pretty sure a Chloe Faye bag would finish the look off perfectly.. Jack if you’re reading this it would make a great Christmas present! What are your favourite pieces this Autumn Winter? Have you got your eye on anything yet? 1-Vila Knitted Cape Jumper – Asos | 2-Striped Suede Skirt – Topshop | 3-V-Back Sweater Dress – Forever 21 | 4-Double Breasted Tailored Long Wool Coat Mauve – Missguided | 5-Knitted Roll Neck Jumper Grey – Missguided | 6-Chunky Jumper With High Neck And Moving Rib – Asos | 7-Teddy Shearling Wool Coat Camel – Missguided | 8-Waffle Knit Turtleneck Sweater – Forever 21 | 9-Textured Boxy Overcoat – Forever 21 | 10-River Island Striped Roll Neck Jumper – Asos | 11-Cocoon Coat in Borg – Asos | 12-Saddle Bag – Next
