So seen as yesterday I did a super personal post ‘2015 // The year in review’ I thought I would do a fashion-y yearly review as well. This is a fashion blog after all. So I’ve picked out my top pieces, some of them new and some of them old, that I wear so often that it’s actually becoming slightly embarrassing. 2015 Fashion Favourites Zara Shearling Coat I feel like this coat was some kind of movement between bloggers. Obviously the original one we were all lusting after was the Acne coat, but Zara did their usual incredible job of making an impeccable dupe. I love the fact that it’s super relaxed and cosy but still looks smart and pretty much makes any outfit look good. If I had to pick one piece in my wardrobe to save in a fire I’m pretty sure this would be it! You can see the coat in action in this post here! Forever 21 Suede coat So this only really just made it in and it’s kind of not really a 2015 favourite – more like I know for a FACT that it’ll be a 2016 favourite. My uh-mazing boyfriend got me this for Christmas and I am obsessed, if I’ve left the house (granted thats not been often) I’ve worn this coat. It’s real suede and the colour is that beautiful rust that I am loving at the moment, plus the tailored style makes any outfit look smart! Forever 21 Denim Shirt This was another Forever 21 purchase – get me, never usually shop there but clearly I should go in more often! I’ve been after the perfect denim shirt for a while. You know when you’ve got a picture in your head of what you want without knowing if said item actually exists let alone where you could buy it? Well i found it, a denim shirt that was heavy denim none of this chambray rubbish, and not fitted, all of the denim shirt’s I see seem to be western style which just doesn’t float my boat. Give me something baggy over something fitted any day! In fact I pretty much wore this whole outfit in this double denim look! Zara Saddle Bag I actually brought this when I was hungover and panic brought an outfit for a meal I was going to (I know what your thinking, who buys a bag for a meal, as I said I was severely hungover). Anyway, I’d been looking at the pink colour way for a while but wasn’t sure I’d use it so I guess when I saw the black one my mind was made up! I love having a small bag as a cross body I feel like it adds more to the outfit than a shoulder bag? It also saves me from filling it with junk which is what I’m prone to doing. As I’m obsessed with this bag at the moment it’s been in so many posts like this one and this one! L’intervalle  Snake Heels Loveeee Snake, I’ve only…

Black X White X Grey // OOTD

*Jacket : Fashion Bazaar // Jumper : Zara // Jeans : Topshop // Bag : Zara // Boots : Next Another Monochrome OOTD I know I’m pretty predictable when it comes to my OOTD posts but I’m kinda hoping you like that about me and perhaps that’s why you stick around? This one is kind of different in the fact that usually I’m wearing a white top with a little black jacket, and this time I’ve found a new love for a white jacket. I know it’s not exactly ground breaking but what can I say? I’m a fan. I got this grey Zara jumper in the Black Friday sales because the shape really reminded me of my old faithful Rust Jumper. Probably one of my favourite buys in 2015 and this is giving it a bit of a rest as my second favourite! (actually I just remembered my shearling coat – okay 2015 was a good shopping year!) The Biker Jacket Loveee this jacket. It’s a biker jacket but its not leather, something I hadn’t really considered before? And I love the colour, kind of an off white? The texture as well is super nice and I think when you’re wearing a monochrome OOTD it has to be about the texture. Personally I think it looks pretty great with my grey jumper. I already know I’ll be living in it this summer, though over a chunky knit will do just fine for now. The Saddle Bag Did I mention I’m in love? I’d been looking at the other colour way of this bag for way longer than I’d like to admit and when I saw it in black my mind was made up! I haven’t put it down since I got it and since I can’t afford the real Chloe this will do just fine for now!

New In // Saint Laurent

So this Christmas I was well and truly spoilt. Like, rotten. I had to show you this because to me, high end is Zara, I’m not usually a big spender and have never actually owned anything designer before. On Christmas day when I peeled back the wrapping to see those magical words ‘Saint Laurent’ I genuinely could not believe my eyes. Don’t get me wrong I’d hinted I wanted a card holder but I was thinking more Reiss or Whistles! I’m actually scared to use it and know as my first ever designer piece I will always treasure it! I just can’t stop looking at it in all of it’s minimal perfectness! Sorry if anyone reads this post as bragging I just wanted to share my love for this piece! Let me know if anyone would be interested in a post about what I got for Christmas! And don’t forget to leave me a comment with what your favourite piece you got was! I should mention that my second favourite thing was a unicorn money box so I’m not just talking bit ticket items here!! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’! We all know its the easiest way to stay up to date without clogging up your inbox!

How to Style a Skirt for Winter . . and Still be …

*Jumper : Study 34// Skirt : Primark // Bag : Zara // Boots : Next  Before I even start this post can we talk about this door and how it’s totally #doorgoals? That blue colour totally compliments my outfit and I’m gutted you can’t see how cute the wreath is! From now on if I see a cute door or something I want as my background for a post I’m totally going to take a picture of it for the post as a stand alone image so you know what I’m on about – and yes I am aware of the amount of times I’ve said totally so far! How to Style a Skirt for Winter No, I haven’t gone mad. Firstly, lurking under those boots (boots of course are essential for skirt wearing in the Winter) is a key secret for keeping warm, and secondly, who said skirts are only for the summer or when you’re too numb from all the prossecco to care? I used to be one of those girls, once autumn hit you wouldn’t catch me with my legs out till the spring again (unless of course I had a prossecco blanket on) but now, I’ve got the key, I’ve got the secret. Sleep Socks Secretly lurking under those boots is a big pair of fluffy socks keeping my toes nice and toasty. A wise man once told me that you loose you’re hear through your feet and head so boots with fluffy socks are a must and if it works, hey through a hat on! Boots, The Longer the Better Hallelujah to the current over the knee boot trend, it’s basically like wearing trousers but with a teensy gap so you can look cute in your skirt but still be nice and warm. Just imagine the layers of socks you could put under those bad boys? The opportunities are endless! if, like me, you’re not really sold on the over the knee trend (no offence if you are I just can’t seem to pull it off!) then boots like these ones from Next are ideal. They’re not quite an ankle boot but they kind of are. I feel like the extra few inches make a hell of a difference! Chunky Knits are you’re Best Friend You need to finish the look off with a chunky knit. Personally I love the chunky knit/skirt look and my wardrobe is overflowing with jumpers (don’t tell my boyfriend I said that, I will never admit to this I always need more) so it’s ideal for me! If you’ve got a super warm jumper on and your feet are snug then you’re pretty much covered! if you’re not a fan of chunky knits (who even are you?!) then get a really well made knit that’s going to lock in the warm and do the same job! This one from Study 34 is hand made (you even get a super cute card saying who knitted it, can you get any more personal?!) which…

Four Ways // New Years Eve Styling

What do I wear on New Years Eve? That fateful question, every year I try to plan ahead and every year I end up buying dresses in bulk at the last minute in a desperate attempt to find something suitable. If I’m totally honest in an attempt to avoid this completely, this year I’m having a rather tame New Years Eve, a couples dinner party. To be fair I’ll probably still panic about what to wear but isn’t that just every Saturday night? Anyway, what my point is, is that I’ve put together a range of different looks to try and inspire you! Underneath each look I’ll add a little widget with some of my top picks from the high street and any discount codes I know of, Believe me there’ll be plenty!! The Little Navy Dress Dress : Zara// Heels : Chockers Shoes  I know it’s typically little black dress but I think we’ve established by now that I’m not you’re typical girl and personally I think navy adds a bit of luxury to your look. I don’t know what it is, but give me the same dress in either navy or black and I’d always choose navy. I love this dress because it’s so comfortable. That baggy style can hide a multitude of sins and is pretty much perfect for a dinner party – ladies and gentlemen I think we know what I’ll be wearing! I love long sleeves on a dress and the low back kind of makes up for the baggy shape so its not too casual. I got it in the sales from Zara last year for a mere £9.99, or something along those outrageously cheap lines! I will link similar below though! I’ve paired it with these fun, fringed heels from Chockers Shoes, something simple like this definitely needs a statement shoe or a substantial heel, one or the other! A Casual New Years Eve Look *Dress : In The Style // *Heels : Public Desire If, like me, you’re not one for dressing up, I’ve got you covered. It’s kind of smart/casual if you will. I know this is the sort of look some girls would probably wear out shopping but for me it’s definitely more of an evening look! Heeled boots are always my saviour for when I want to look smart but can’t quite take the leap out of my casual comfort zone. This In The Style dress paired with my favourite Public Desire boots (they had to be in there somewhere) is to me the perfect casual new years look. I mean you’ve got your legs out, what more do people want? Make sure you use code SIN10 for 10% off at In the Style sitewide The New Years Eve Playsuit *Playsuit : In The Style // *Heels : In The Style Obviously khaki was going to be in here somewhere, god I wish I could add the sassy emoji in here! The colour of the year (for me anyway) was bound to be featured! This little…
