Now I know what you’re expecting and I can tell you now there’s no Chanel handbags in this post. Soz for the misleading title guys, but this is actually a post about my new Sekonda watch from House of Watches. I personally think it’s well deserving of the title, so what, just because you don’t buy something from Harrods for thousands, it doesn’t mean its not luxury. It can be anything from a nice bath to a Hermes Birkin (I’ll take the later please and thank you). I think everyone has their own view on what luxury means, whilst I would love a Chloe handbag I also see time spent with my loved ones as one of life’s true luxuries! I was asked to choose between three watches for this post and I have to say this was my last option, now I’m wondering why. Usually, as you well know, I’m a bit of a basic dresser and opt for clean and simple style so I was actually taken aback at how much I liked this watch. There’s something about the gold and navy together that give it a touch of luxury and make it look way more than the mere £34.99 it is. The diamantes are definitely not something I would usually look for on a watch but hey, whats three diamantes between friends? I’ll tell you what else I love about this, the face. You can’t beat a big mannish watch but this ones nice and slim so you still get the size but it’s a little sleeker with it’s slim face and thin strap giving it a more feminine feel. Can you tell that I had far too much fun playing around and taking photographs for this post? I love a good flatlay and a watch always finishes the picture off perfectly, especially this Sekonda navy leather and gold tone beauty! I also just wanted to show off my new jumper from H&M, what do you think?! I’ve seen this whole wearing your watch over your jumper thing in photos before and think it looks really nice. Am I totally wrong here? Not sure it’s the sort of thing you’d wear out of the house though, perhaps if it wasn’t with such a thick jumper! What’s your favourite way to wear your watch?!

Oh So Chloe

I was sent this dress last week by @TheDressingRoomHQ, unfortunately I can’t link them or this dress because they’re instagram based but you have to check them out. I chose this one because I think it’s so Chloe esque and when paired with my sisters Chloe Faye dupe it instantly takes the look up a level. That’s what I love about accessories and why I think it’s so important to invest in them. I used to be a one bag girl and when I look back now I just don’t even recognise myself! How on earth could one bag ever do for every outfit? I myself am in the market for a Chloe dupe but I just don’t know quite how I feel about dupes. I kind of feel like if I get a dupe then when I finally save and purchase my first designer bag it’ll take the joy out of it. I don’t know though, the time I’ll actually get one seems so far in the future and these bags are so nice! What do you guys think? I’ll put some links at the bottom of this post of all the dupes I’m craving for at the minute! I really love the colours in this shirt dress, obviously you all know how obsessed I am with khaki so it comes with no surprise that I love this but the navy and orange stripes just sit so lovely together. I couldn’t believe it was only £20, it looks like something out of Zara aka my favourite shop ever. I couldn’t help but finish the look off with my khaki boots, totally giving in to my khaki addiction with this outfit!

Black Jeans, Blue Shirt #nexttake12

Okay, so Lana said blue jeans, white shirt but hey, any kinda jeans with any kinda shirt and I’m happy. I’ve actually surprised myself recently with my love for shirts, white t-shirts are usually my everyday uniform but recently I’ve shifted to shirts and seriously, I’ve been missing out. As I’m the casual-ist of casual dressers I usually wear my shirts undone but with the pretty tie detail this Next shirt called out to be buttoned right to the top. I actually really like it, who knew? I could be buttoning up more of my shirts in the future, watch this space (I can already sense your anticipation to see me in shirts done all of the way up). I’ve gone for a smart-ish look, well about as smart as I get. I think I look quite grown up!! And yes I am aware that I’m 25 and therefore technically a grown up.  What do you think to this look? How would you style the shirt?Please can we also just ignore the fact that I have a claw hand? Ok thanks! I was actually surprised by this shirt from Next, I usually dismiss Next as being mumsy but it’s totally not. After receiving this shirt I thought I’d take a little look in store and they have the nicest shoes and bags as well, I picked up a pair of jeans for just £22 which I was gobsmacked at (I usually get them from Topshop where they’re £42). I also noticed this bag which I’m totally going to have to go back for. As a result i’ve now signed up to the directory (woops) and did you know that they also do next day delivery if you order before midnight? I tried this out the other month actually, I was struggling to find something for a wedding and my original outfit just wasn’t looking right (you know the feeling?) so I panic ordered a few dresses and was shocked to discover that I had till midnight. And in case you’re curious, it came the next morning, I mean how do they even do that?!

‘That’ Zara Coat

Picture this, I’m in a busy crowded room, there’s people all around me and suddenly, she catches my eye. In that moment, nothing else mattered and I knew she had to be mine. I made my way across the room oblivious to my surroundings and grasped her warm soft fur. Let me just stop for a minute – yes, I’m talking about a coat, and no, I don’t think I’m being dramatic.So you’ve probably seen me raving about this already on twitter, instagram and every other social media outlet available. Let’s just say I love it so much that I’ve dedicated this post to the one, the only, Zara Coat. Yes, I did get my wonderful photographer friend Alex Wallace to take multiple shots of me in the jacket from every possible angle, it’s worth it, you’ll see. It’s so warm and cosy and it’s definitely one of the must have styles this season. I don’t want to piss you off or anything but I’m actually praying for cold weather so that I can wear it! I know this jacket is selling like hot cakes and is unavailable online so I’ll link a few (cheaper) alternatives, you need to stop what you’re doing (maybe finish reading my post) and go and buy this!Can I just take a minute here to explain two things that you must not judge me on. Firstly, yes, I am aware that my legs look like I live in Iceland but my face is more Marbella. I was feeling very ill when we shot this and I don’t know about you but I always go a bit overboard on the bronzer when I’m feeling ill – and just in general life. Secondly, I know you’re looking at these jeans and I blame Topshop. These are their Jamie style which I love for the fit and the thicker denim, but those rips just keep on growing and it ain’t a pretty site. I did actually buy a new pair of jeans from Next of all places today so I’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing those soon enough. Has anyone else got their winter coat yet or is just me? Also, is it possible to be in love with a piece of clothing? I think I amHere’s some similar styles, I was going to try and be clever and add clickable photos but wordpress won’t let me put the picture’s in a row and I’m too much of a perfectionist. If anyone out there’s a wordpress wizz then help!

Double Denim Days

I love simple outfit’s like this, I’m all about simplicity when it comes to getting dressed, if it’s too faffy and I’m not comfortable then I’m not wearing it! I wasn’t quite ready to rock the double blue denim look so I thought I’d pull out my old trusty wax coated skinnies. I would actually wear these all the time if they weren’t a size too small, I have to seriously consider how much eating/ sitting down I’ll be doing when I put these on in the morning.I’m not being funny but I think these sunnies can make any outfit look chic. I literally won’t go anywhere without them, come rain or shine they’re in my bag! These are the shoes that tore my feet to shreds last week in London and left me bleeding in multiple places. I do however love them dearly and will be slipping my scarred feet back into them the second the blisters have healed!Love the fact that my glasses are on wonky here, I wonder if they actually look like this all the time and don’t really fit me? I know I’ve raved about this shirt quite possibly three times now? but seriously – love it. the quality is incredible for the price and I’ve also worn it as a light weight jacket which looks really nice – maybe I’ll do another double denim look with my denim skirt? Watch this space! Don’t forget to leave me a comment! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
