I was sent this Chanel esque dress from the lovely ladies over at Fashion Bazaar. I love the tweed style that makes it look like a luxury piece and had me walking round thinking I was an extra in Gossip Girl. If I’m honest I didn’t know how to wear it to begin with, this is back when no one had told the weather what month we were in so it was bloody freezing. I still detest tights so went bare with these pumps from Karen Kozangian. It’s quite a small dress with no give what so ever so I would definitely recommend sizing up on this one! As someone who usually wears a more loose style I decided to finish the look off with my coat to make it feel more me.I’m loving the details in this outfit, this is probably my favourite image from the shoot. You can see the beautiful texture of the tweed-ish material on the dress which compliments my watch and ring. I wasn’t sure how I felt about this ring from Perka Design when I first got it, it’s so unusual! I’m absolutely obsessed with croc skin slash any kind of texture. I love these wine coloured points from Kozangian, I only seem to own boots or sandals and have been wanting a pair of flat shoes for a while but every pair I find there’s always some reason why they aren’t the ones. I definitely think that the accessories are what makes this outfit work, but let’s be honest, you can make any outfit work with the right pair of shoes!! What do you think to this look? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

50 Shades of Brown

I thought 50 shades of brown was quite an apt name for this post as I pretty much look like the brown paint swatch section in Homebase. I got this skirt from Primark and I’m pretty sure it was like £8? Even as I’m saying this I’m thinking it’s wrong but no, I’m quite sure it was under a tenner which is clearly why I couldn’t say no, duh! I think you can totally get away with wearing skirts with bare legs when you wear boots and a jumper, I’ve seen so many bloggers with knee length boots which look perfect for wearing a skirt in winter. I’m not really a tights kinda gal, no offence if you love them but I just think they’re so gross! Definitely a last resort slash only suitable for work in my opinion!!I’m loving how coordinated my look is here, the sunglasses, scarf and skirt look made for each other. I’d love to say I planned it but I definitely didn’t. Also, how amazing are these khaki boots from River Island? I can already tell these will be stuck to my feet all winter! What do you think of my all brown look? I’d love to hear what you think!

3 ways to wear . . Oversized Jumper

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
