SheInside Christmas Wishlist

Jumper // Jeans // Boots // Black Bag // Grey Bag // Coat I’ve been clever and made the pictures clickable again, slowly but surely I’m turning into a tech savvy goddess. I’ve put together a little wish list (always a pleasure) of my top things from Sheinside. They have the biggest selection so it’s almost impossible to see everything but after a mere 5 minutes of browsing I’d already decided on a full outfit I needed including two bags.. one is never enough! I know it’s quite late now and christmas is a matter of days away but I’m happy with an IOU if it includes these beauty’s and hey, a few unsubtle hints never hurt anybody. Loving the colour of the pinky/brown jumper and you can never have too many pairs of ripped jeans.. honestly that phrase works for anything because I also believe you can never have too many knits and never have too many pairs of shoes. Whatever you need to do to justify a purchase! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ for more christmas inspo and plenty of new and exciting stuff next year!

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?

The colour of the year (for me anyway) was bound to be featured! This little…

Monochrome Knitwear

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? *Bomber Jacket : Lily Lulu // Jumper : H&M // Jeans : Topshop // *Boots : Public Desire // *Bag : Pauls Boutique (Similar Here) // *Necklace : Happiness Boutique 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! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ for lots more lovely outfit posts to come! Shop the Post

How to Nail Christmas Gifting for Men

Unlike other years I’m actually nearly done and dusted with Christmas shopping, which is a miracle considering my boyfriends birthday’s on the 16th of December, such a nightmare! So for those of you that haven’t even though about Christmas shopping yet, what are you thinking?! I’ve put together a little gift guide for some Christmas gifting inspiration! I had to put a ban on spending because I love buying presents and could just keep buying and spending all of my pennies! Anyway, I’ve put together a little gift guide boutique for you to shop so I hope some of you find this helpful because personally I think men are the worst to buy for, like impossible! I actually found some pretty good bits though for all price points so let me know if this is helpful and you find the perfect gift!! Don’t forget to let me know if and what you buy! And as always, make sure you follow me on Bloglovin’ if you aren’t already!!
