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!

Getting Intimate with ELCY

When you’re sister’s running her own lingerie company, guess who get’s the first try of all the new season products? yep, you got it, that’ll be me. Never one to be greedy I decided on two of my favourites, one from her core collection and a new piece I’ve been eyeing up since she first made the samples. Now I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, if there’s one silver lining to having small boobs (there’s actually plenty incase you were wondering) then it’s being able to wear pretty bras. When I was younger I used to wear bra’s so padded the room shook when they hit the floor with a thud, now however, I’ve learnt to accept myself small boobs and all. Also, not only are they pretty, they’re actually so comfortable, why on earth have I been wearing underwired bras all of these years? ain’t nothing to go south here, no support needed! Because these are bra’s and I didn’t want to be getting my tits out for the photographer (no I thought I’d just show them to the whole of the internet instead – hi mum!) I’ve treated you to a few selfies a la Kim K. Who doesn’t love a selfie? Kendall (the bra incase you were wondering) is by far the most popular style on the site and comes in black and white. This season Kylie her sassy sister is also being released, it’s the same shape but with a longer ribbon at the back that wraps around – at the moment I think Kylie just comes in the black but if she’s even nearly as popular as her big sister I’m sure she’ll be branching out soon enough! Also if you fancy a free Kylie, yes I did say free, then make sure you enter the competition on elcy clothing’s Instagram. Alexa (the bra again, come on guys keep up) is by far my favourite. I love the scalloped, eyelash lace and because the wrap around bit on this one is elastic you can wear it just beneath the bra or lower by your pants, do what you want with it basically! I need to mention that you can have any of the bra’s lined if you want to, Kendall was and Alexa wasn’t, so if you wanted the Kendall to have the same delicate feel you can. She’s also going to start doing gift cards very soon – woo hoo. So you might want to start dropping some heavy hints, Christmas is not that far away guys! I guess it’s good for friends too, I mean if you like buying your friends underwear that is. It’s always super awkward having to guess someones size which is why gift cards never fail! Side note, how amazing is this navy kendra body? I didn’t dare pick this one, I’m not sure I could pull it off but you can see my supermodel sister in her element here.

Channeling Chanel

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!
