Shirt : Topshop // Jeans : Next // Boots : Next // Bag : Zara A Classic Look Ok, so it’s no Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but seriously, is there any look that’s more classic for the modern day gal than blue jeans and a white shirt!? Lana Del Rey said it, Homer Simpson’s a fan, what more do you need to know? I said it in yesterday’s post and I’ll say it again, I’d be happy wearing just blue jeans and a white shirt for the rest of my life. The Blue Jeans Blue jeans are pretty much my best friends in the whole entire world. They’re always there for me, they’re ridiculously comfy, and they look good with anything. My favourites generally come from Topshop, I’m a die hard fan of the Jamie style. I know what size I am and I know exactly how they fit, when it comes to jeans – stick to what you know!! I do want to find some cheaper alternatives though so if anyone knows of some I would love to know so I can try them out!! The White Shirt I love white shirt looks but I often find that white shirts are quite stiff. I hate that material. Like school shirts or something?! When I found this super soft Topshop one I was so happy. I love the boxy shape and the slits which make it so comfy and easy to move in. If you hadn’t cottoned on yet, comfort is key to my wardrobe! I  love the clean look of a white shirt, especially the oversized boyfriend style ones. I feel like they’re super sexy in an understated way.

That Suede Coat

Coat : Forever 21 // Jumper : H&M // Jeans : Topshop // Boots : Next // Bag : Zara I would have begged, borrowed or stole to get this coat a couple of months ago! When I went on to Forever 21’s website and saw the price of it, under £60 for a genuine suede coat, I knew it was going to be mine. Round about this time my boyfriend had been asking about what I wanted for Christmas. Silly me put it on the list instead of just buying it, and this is where the emotional blackmail begins. When I first mentioned it I said I really wanted it and by the next week I’d threatened him with crying on christmas day if it wasn’t there. Constantly ringing him to say I’ll buy it don’t worry, emails with discount codes, more emotional blackmail and finally the magical day came with this beauty under the tree. . . totally worth it! I can’t stop wearing this exact outfit – well these jeans, that suede coat and the snake boots! I feel like because it’s so fitted it’s a real ladies coat. I can literally wear whatever I want underneath and I look smart! I’m telling you girls, all you need is the right pair of shoes with the right jacket and you’re gonna look good! All Photographs by Alexandra Wallace So! What do you think to my new coat?! Do you think it was worth the months of moaning and emotional blackmailing that it took for me to get it? I do!

Simple Neutral Styling

*Jacket : Fashion Bazaar // Jumper : Primark // Jeans : Topshop // Watch : Larsson & Jennings // *Boots : Public Desire Location, Location, Location Firstly can we just take a minute to have a look at the location of this shoot? What do we think? I think we’ve established the fact that I go out specifically to take pictures and don’t just have a photographer at hand to shoot me wearing what I wear everyday! This is a cute set of shops outside a hotel where I live and I think it looks so Chelsea and cute! I think I’ll definitely be going back here to shoot again! Unfortunately the lighting was going a bit so we had to use a flash which to me is a no no but Kirk assured me that it would be fine and hey, turns out you can trust a photographer! Neutral Styling As we all know I’m a huge fan of neutral styling. If you cut me open I would be camel and grey through and through! I’m really loving this jacket at the moment, I’ve got so much more wear out of it than I thought and honestly it goes with everything I wear. I think in the summer I would even wear it in an all white look – too crazy? I have to admit that half of this outfit is stolen property. Only the jacket and boots are mine and the jeans and jumper are my sisters. Oh they joy of still living at home! I can’t believe she got this jumper from Primark, it’s so soft! I’ll be stealing this a lot more often I think! Also love the charcoal-y black colour of these jeans and the rips haven’t got out of control like the ones on my jeans yet!

Grey Tones X Suede Jacket // Part 2

*Jacket : Your Shores// Jumper : Zara (sold out) // Jeans : H&M // Boots : Public Desire // Bag : Zara Suede Lovin’ I thought today would be a great day to share the second instalment of my love for leather jackets, and the second jacket that was sent to me by the lovely people over at Your Shores. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll remember my beige/camel coloured suede jacket (which I still very much love, it’s just been side lined a bit for the winter) that is super old and I could never find a link to. Well people, here it is in grey! I was so shocked when I saw it on the site and couldn’t resist getting it in another colour to add to my ever growing jacket collection! I thought I’d go for a tonal look with the grey jacket – I don’t have grey shoes or bag but blacks close enough isn’t it? These are super old jeans from H&M, if you can call them jeans. . they’re jeggings which I never would have thought I’d be wearing but I think it’s ok because; one, they’re jeany material and two, I would never wear them so you could see the fastening, or lack of! I actually got this jumper in the Zara black Friday sale and it’s fast becoming a firm favourite alongside the good old rust one. I purposely got it because it’s a similar shape and thought the other one could do with a bit of a rest! Texture I love the details in this picture! you can really see all of the different grey tones and the textures together look pretty damn great if I do say so myself! Also, can we just appreciate how much I love the below picture? Showing that boot heel off to it’s full potential! Let me know what you think to a tonal look! I feel like because I wear so many neutrals it was only a matter of time before this happened!!! Also don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ so you never miss a post!

Feeling Beige

*Jumper : Sheinside// Jeans : Next// Scarf : Zara// *Boots : Public Desire I always debate outfits like this for the blog and try to make them a bit more interesting but hey, this is a personal style blog isn’t it? Well then this is what I like to wear! In my opinion there’s nothing better than a good chunky knit and a pair of jeans. These ones are slightly too big and I’m not sure if they look scruffy and need throwing out, or good in that cool oversized kinda way?? Thoughts would be appreciated! Although this may be a basic look I think you can dress it up with a nice scarf and heeled boots, boots were always going to be my beloved Public Desire ones of course! I love love love the knit of this jumper, I’m not sure if it’s fisherman knit or waffle? I think fisherman is the really chunky one? Either way I love a good bit of texture, particularly on a plain colour like this beige! I’m also a fan of this kind of neckline this winter, I sometimes feel suffocated in a polo neck but I love the high neck. I’ve been told it’s called a turtle neck. Did you see the article that I was featured in by Shop Style? In the article they tip me for success in 2016 and I’m still in shock that a company like Shop Style would find my little blog and see such potential in it! If you haven’t already then read it here!
