I’ve never really been a fan of cardigans, and I’m not sure what it is, but I think there’s a line of thickness in a cardigan where it crosses over from being a cardigan to a coatigan. So for my own sake, I’ll be calling this a coatigan, and if any of you have a problem with that then you can just go and call the cardigan police! When it comes to knitwear, monochrome is key. My wardrobe is full of monochrome knitwear, I have a jumper in practically every shade of cream, white and grey, black not so much. Yes, is the answer to your question, there are different shades of white and cream. What I love about this coatigan is the pattern, I think it makes a statement and is another one of those pieces that you can just chuck on to make jeans and a t-shirt look put together. This is where my monochrome knitwear theory comes in, if this pattern was in colour it just wouldn’t work, monchrome is king, fact. Because I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple, I stuck with my favourite linen t-shirt (which shrunk in the wash and I am devastated about), my In the Style jeans with stitching detail up the sides (use code SIN10 for 10% off anything at In the Style) and of course, my failsafe Public Desire boots! And here it is, my new baby, the light of my life, my new bag. I love this bag for three reasons: 1 – are you seeing what I’m seeing 2 – it goes with everything 3 – it forces me to not carry round everything I own. *Coatigan : SheInside // T-Shirt : H&M // *Jeans : In the Style ( Use code SIN10 for 10% off anything online) //*Boots : Public Desire // Bag : Zara Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’  so you never miss a post!!

Hello, It’s Me . .

Did you wonder where I’d been? I’m sorry for the relentless stream of faceless posts but I promise to try and be more organised from now on! I’ve had a few sorry excuses (the flu, photographer on holiday) for not shooting which meant I was left imageless and with a pile of outfits building up, but I’m back. Don’t panic. I’ve been after a bomber jacket for a while, khaki of course, so when I was sent this one from Lily Lulu I was pretty damn happy about it! It’s so warm, like only marginally not as warm as my Zara shearling coat. It’s really nice to have an alternative to wear for the chilly weather because to be honest, the shearling’s taken a bit of  battering, we’re talking everyday wear here. I thought it was going to be cold to begin with because if I’m honest it’s a bit papery on the outside, but don’t be fooled theres lots of padding on the inside! It’s not exactly Topshop or Zara quality but for the price of it it’s really nice and it 100% does the job, I nearly fell asleep driving to work the other day it was like being wrapped in a quilt! SO cosy! Can we just take a minute to appreciate how badly I put my lipstick on?!This outfit is pretty much what I wear most days, I’m so in love with my H&M fringed jumper, its really warm but because it’s not a fluffy knit I don’t overheat in it – if you know what I mean? Also, cream jumpers are always a winner. Then of course my go to boots and bag at the minute, I have actually brought a smaller Zara bag recently (which I know you’ll be seeing a lot of) in an attempt to stop carrying round so much junk. Like honestly, I love this bag but I carry around so much crap, after a day of using it I genuinely feel like I’ve done a work out – arm day, is that a gym thing like leg day? Let me know what you think and again I do apologise for the lack of outfit posts, I love them too! Sidebar, have you all done your christmas shopping? I’m nearly finished but just have one tricky secret santa left to buy for! I’ve been using Selfridges gift guide for tips because it’s uh-mazing! Topshop also have a really good one sectioning it off into different personalities!

November Favourites

I’ve never done a post like this before but I love watching them on Youtube, and seen as I’m too much of a WIMP to start my own channel I shall continue to use them as inspo for blogging! Posts like this ‘November Favourites’ I find so helpful because its not just “here look what I brought” you can get a little review on the product and why they’re loving it.. so here goes. Also, if you do think I should start a youtube channel and you would actually watch it and subscribe, let me know because it is something I am seriously thinking about but I would feel awful for having to submit the world to the sound of my voice, is it just me that hates the sound of their voice on tape?(tape? what are we in 1990?) The Shearling Coat This isn’t just a November favourite, this is a since I brought it from Zara favourite. Wow that sounded like an M&S advert! Unfortunately for you guys it’s sold out everywhere but I’ll make a little widget and stick it below with some good copies! This coat though, was such a good investment. I felt physical pain when I handed my card over to pay £90!! But so worth it, I don’t think there’s been a day that’s gone by that I haven’t worn it and I know you get me when I say the fact that I can wear a lightweight top underneath it and still be warm is everything. The Public Desire Boots I’m just obsessed with these boots. I don’t think you need an explanation as to why, if you do then I don’t think I trust your judgetment!! They’re a dupe of the Topshop Master Boots but half the price, Public Desire always have discount codes too if you sign up to their newsletter or something, just a handy tip for you there! The White Tee I brought this T shirt in Zara in Sweden and I must wear it at least once a week, no shame. I’ve never tried to hide my obsession with white T-shirts, but this one has the nicest texture. It’s kind of bobble, lines? Not great at describing things but you can see it in the picture! Because it’s more structured too I love wearing it with just jeans and heels for a smart/casual look because lets face it I never go full out smart. The Rust Jumper I’m pretty sure you guys love this jumper as much as me. As you can see it’s gone all bobbly from the amount of times I’ve worn it but to be honest it’s not that obvious in real life and quite frankly I’m not prepared to part with it yet! I would honestly wear this everyday if it was socially acceptable, it’s definitely my go to piece for when I don’t know what to wear slash can’t be bothered! Again this is probably sold out but either way it’s from Gina Tricot which is a Swedish…

How to Style a Wrap Scarf

I haven’t done a post like this in a while so I thought it would be fun (and hopefully helpful) to do a three ways to wear post! I was sent this Burberry esque wrap scarf and honestly it’s been my winter saviour. I’s got the slits for your arms so you can wear it a la cape but I think it looks pretty good as a chunky scarf personally! Three ways to wear a wrap scarf Wrap Scarf : IntheStyle // Top : IntheStyle // Jeans : Topshop // Boots : Public Desire // Bag : Pauls Boutique  Casual Styling This is probably my favourite look of this post, probably because it took the least effort of them all and is the sort of thing I’ll wear most days. I do think though, it’s the perfect example of how great a wrap scarf can be, firstly it’ll keep me warm and allow me to wear a simple long sleeved top. Secondly, it turns just jeans and a top into a pulled together look. They do this wrap scarf in two different shades but I like the brighter colours because it reminds me of the Burberry one that was floating around last year. It also goes with a surprising amount of colours, well the limited amount of colours I wear anyway! Obviously, these boots are going to be hard to avoid now seen as I’m in love. I like to roll my jeans up to avoid the weird tucky in part which just never looks right. I also think a little bit of skin never hurt anyone and breaks it up a bit! Wrap Scarf : IntheStyle // Top : IntheStyle // Skirt : Old ( Similar Here) // Boots : Public Desire //Watch : Abbott Lyon (Use code SINEADAL25 for £25 discount and free worldwide shipping) Styling with a Skirt Of course my beloved denim skirt was bound to make an appearance as it always does, seriously guys it’s such a wardrobe staple! I’ve paired it with the white version of the khaki top I was wearing in the first look – yes we’ve already established I’m a girl of habit! I will just mention that the tops and the scarf are all from IntheStyle and if you do purchase anything, make sure you use the code SIN10 for 10% off your order! Again, the wrap scarf is perfect for adding a warm layer to your outfit without having to completely cover it up with a coat, to be fair I’ve pretty much made it the star of the show here as everything else is simple and monochrome- ish. Of course my favourite boots made another appearance! I’m not really a belt person but I’ve seen people add belts to this kind of look which does actually look really nice, its just not me.  Wrap Scarf : IntheStyle //Jumper : H&M // Jeans : IntheStyle // Boots : QS Laid Back Look I know these are all casual looks, what else did you…

Styling A Denim Dress for Winter

Gilet : Old  Use code CYBER for 20% off today\\ Dress : In the Style Uk ( use code SIN10 for 10% discount) \\ Boots : Public Desire \\ Bag : Lavish Luxe \\ Rings : Melinda Maria \\ Bracelet : Melinda Maria The Denim Dress I have literally been after a good denim dress for what seems like forever, so when I was sent this beauty by the lovely girls at In the Style it seemed like all of my denim dress dreams had been answered! I’m sure you’re all too aware of my obsession with my button up denim skirt so how was I ever going to not love a button up denim dress? Only problem is – when it comes to winter I’m generally more of a jeans kinda gal. You see, my passionate hate for black tights makes wearing skirts a pretty chilly problem. Until that is, I remembered this fur gilet thats been hiding in the back of my wardrobe for a while! I’m always a bit undecided when it comes to fur (faux of course) I never know if it’s nice or tacky, and I’m still not totally sold on it – what do you think? One thing I will say though is that I didn’t feel the chill despite not wearing a coat or tights – it certainly does the job! Which of course means it could be my winter saviour if I can just rest myself firmly on the classy side of the scale.   I love this look with these boots as well, if you follow me on instagram then you’ll have seen them plastered all over my page! They’re so similar to these Topshop ones but a fraction of the price! AND I’ve just remembered its Cyber Monday so if you use the code CYBERBAE you’ll get 20% off anything from Public Desire including these boots!!! I think because they’re cut off slightly above the ankle it’s so much more flattering with a bare leg. I guess it’s the fact that they cut off in the narrow part of your leg? To me they just look so nice with a skirt/dress and I’d actually wear them out (if I ever went out that is) I mean I know I’m a casual dresser but I just think they’re such an all rounder. What I’m trying to say is that you need them, so buy them now!   Did you need any more proof on why you should buy the boots? Look above! Also I don’t know if you can see but they have a square toe, not in a weird way, in a lovely way! Loving this bag as well, I do have a secret obsession with tassels (apologies for my awful nails!).   Apologies for how red and puffy I’m looking in these shot’s, I did drag my sorry arse out of my sick bed for these photos!! What I wore Gilet : Old – Use code CYBER for 20% off today\\ Dress : In the…
