I know I do quite a lot of outfit posts but I don’t really do anything like this often, why not you ask? I’m asking myself the same question! Personally, I love reading things like this because it really helps me to decide on if I want something. I’m not really an impulse shopping kinda girl, well that’s a lie, I’m a buy it on impulse then take it all back kinda girl. Yep, one of those, if you work in a shop you hate me, I know it and I’m ok with it. Anyway I’ve gone completely off point, what I was trying to say was that I love reading these posts because it shows me how much I need the piece because it’s so versatile! So when I was given the task of styling this oversized jumper three different ways I was only too happy to take on the challenge. *Jumper : STALF | Jeans : Topshop | Scarf : Zara | Sandals : M&S Old *Jumper : STALF | Jeans : Primark | *Boots : Linzi Shoes | Bag : Zara *Jumper : STALF | Skirt : Primark | *Shoes : Next Old | Hat : H&M The Outfit with the white jeans is definitely my favourite, I got the boots this week from the lovely girls at Linzi Shoes. I’ve worn them twice and already there are three people who’ve said they’re buying them so if you want them then I’d hurry. They’re a really simple style but I love the colour and they’re just the right height I’d say! When I received the jumper from STALF I was shocked to discover it was fleece, read the product description? who? me? Anyway, the thought of wearing fleece again brought up memories of my sister taunting “someone call the fleece police” and I started to wonder how the hell can anyone make fleece look good. Anyway, I clearly had nothing to worry about as this is no ordinary fleece jumper. It’s so wearable, It literally goes with anything, never did I think I would see the day that I would be happy to wear fleece in public! Which looks your favourite?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Killer Heels

Can we just take a moment to fully appreciate how sassy these heels are? I don’t feel truly worthy to show them in all of their sassy glory, however, I love them, they’re mine so I rocked them the only way I know how! Jeans and a top, I know, I know what you’re thinking, why didn’t I dress up for a night out in them? I did! Honestly guys, I make casual look dressed up. This is a dressed up look for me, I love jeans and heels on a night out and if I’m deadly honest, those nights out don’t come round all that often! I may only be 25 and in my prime but I love a good night in or dinner and wine, I’m definitely more about the food and wine than the vodka and clubs! Anyway. I’ve gone off on one! I love these wax effect jeans from Topshop, they’re perfect for when you want to look a bit dressier but you also want to wear jeans! I’ve also gone the extra mile with my top (from my Stockholm Mini Haul) and tied a not in it to give my look more shape and a dressier feel. And of course the bag that everyone loves! Jacket : Asos | Top : Mango | Jeans : Topshop | *Shoes : SoleWish | Bag : Zara I’m not sure if these are a boot or a sandal? I mean I’d say open toe boot but there’s probably more holes than there is material! They’ve got a kind of bee-hive esque pattern which I love and I always prefer a pair of boots that come a big higher than my ankle because it’s so much more flattering! Sole Wish have definitely hit the sassy nail on the head with this set of killer heels! The only problem I had with these shoes is my toes. Now I’ve got toes that are potentially longer than some peoples fingers, and that is not an exaggeration! Unfortunately due to the big holes and the unnatural length of my toes they were out of control! If you scroll back up to the full length shots you can see them breaking free, I’m pretty sure if I wore these on a night out I’d skin my toes!! I’m so sad to say they’re going to have to go back on the shelf until I figure out a way of keeping my toes on a leash! Anyone got any tips I would be very appreciative!!! How would you dress these up? Do you prefer the laid back look like me?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Monochrome Clash

So I pretty much picked the worst location ever for this shoot! My poor photographer was risking her life with every photo standing in the middle of a busy road on a Saturday morning, not my finest moment! I was looking forward to styling up this Miss Pap top in all of it’s monochrome glory. I’m a bit sad I didn’t have it sooner for the good weather but I’m sure it will look lovely layered up and it’s perfect for drinks with friends and other evening activities! I’m a fan of a loose fit so this is perfect for me, I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many tops, particularly white ones! Seen as it’s getting far too chilly for my liking I decided to put my old friend the blanket scarf into good use. I love the clashing prints in this look, I always see other people doing this sort of thing and just never feel like I could pull it off myself. I guess if you’re going to try and do something like that then monochrome is definitely the way to start! I’m not honestly a huge fan of dog tooth (or is it hounds tooth?) in many things, I mean if it turns out to be a huge trend in the future I’m sure I’ll be eating my words. But I’ve always loved my trusted blanket scarf, it’s my only monochrome one so it probably gets the most wear of them all. The prints work well together, because the Miss Pap top has a larger print and the scarfs a smaller print they’re not so in your face when put together. Are you with me in making the switch to your winter wardrobe or are you still clinging on to summer? *Top : Miss Pap | Scarf : Old | Jeans : Topshop | *Shoes : Next Old | Bag : Zara

Autumn Neutrals

Unless this is the first time you’re reading my blog you’ll be very aware (and sick to the back teeth of hearing) that I’m a lover of neutrals. In particular, white t shirts. Now to the normal eye this is a white t shirt, I however think it’s much more than a white t shirt and should be deemed a top.  I picked this up when I was in Zara a few weeks ago, I did have to stop myself from buying it in stripes and navy and black and the list goes on. I love the boxy shape and the thicker material, but what really sold it to me was the texture of the material. It’s kind of like towelling without being absolutely hideous, it’s got bobbly ish texture, ok I’m not great at describing things, just get it, you’ll love it and you’ll thank me. It’s really cheap if I remember rightly and also its crisp white. Not ivory, not off white, its white white which I love. I layered it up with my favourite charity shop find cardigan which goes perfectly (off course it does its neural) my pastel bag from Brown & Berry. I love the girls over at Brown & Berry for constantly keeping me up to date with their latest arm candy. This ones real leather and pretty much goes with anything. This was my go to bag on holiday because you can also tuck the strap in so it’s a clutch for the evening! Top : Zara | Skirt : Primark Old (Similar Here) | Cardigan : Charity Shop (Similar Here) | *Wedges : Next Old (Similar Here) | *Bag : Brown & Berry | *Watch : Urban Watch   I’m still in love with this denim skirt too, I think I’ll still be wearing it in the winter with chunky knits!

Shirt Dress

Can we just take a minute to appreciate how nice this shirt dress is? When Forever Modo contacted me to say they’d like to collaborate (love those emails!) I was excited but also nervous. Let me just explain! Nervous because I’m a picky bugger and they were sending me something of their choice. Honestly though, I needn’t have worried, clearly the girls at Forever Modo had been stalking my style to see what I normally wear and they pretty much hit the jackpot when they sent me this! I don’t actually own a shirt dress, neither have I ever owned one before, but I love it. The tiny print, the relaxed shape and the roll up sleeves are all massive ticks for me. I probably wouldn’t have picked this out if I’m completely honest because I tend to stick to what I know, but I’m proud to say I’m now a shirt dress convert! We were having one of those rare days in the UK when the sun’s shining so I decided to bare my legs and wear my wedges for a kinda smart casual look. I have to warn you actually – this dress is incredibly sheer, you have to wear something underneath! I have this white tube dress/ skirt/ piece of material that I always wear under things like this, you could probably wear black too though if you wanted to give it a different look! I’ve definitely renewed my love for this handbag, not long after I got it the lovely girls at Brown and Berry sent me a handbag and then my boyfriend brought me a new one (ok, I’ll stop bragging) so it kind of got shoved to the back of my wardrobe. I can’t believe I did that to such a beautiful bag, yes it may weigh a ton but it’s worth the wonky shoulder and it’s perfect for Autumn, bonus for you guys, they still sell it online! If your reading this blog and thinking “hey, this is pretty good” I would be eternally grateful if you would nominate me for the cosmopolitan blog awards! I’ve put the link on the side of my blog but you can also nominate me here! Leave me a comment if you do so I can thank you individually!!!! *Shirt Dress : Forever Modo | *Wedges : Next Old | Bag : Zara | Necklace : Magpie on the Run Would you let someone else pick out clothes for you!? After this revelation I would definitely do it again! I think it’s great to try out new things! Follow me on Bloglovin
