Winter Paisley

Hi Guys, 

Today's outfit is all about one of my favourite prints- paisley, it is timeless and classic but also has a edge to it, and at the moment I love it in Burgundy and plum colours, like this gorge Boohoo number! 

Coat- Newlook, Top-Boohoo,Faux Fur- H&M
Jeans-Primark, Loafers- Newlook, Hat-Primark

This top has been perfect for these cold winter days when I have not wanted to think about styling a look together as it does all the work for you. You can just throw on a pair of jeans or leather trousers and you are good to go! I recently decided that my selection of tops was lacking and so went on a bit of a haul for some new ones and Boohoo came out on top, and this plum paisley number is my fav. 
Topshop and River Island also have some nice paisley prints, too if you are looking.

I really like the look with my faux fur collar too, it gives it a 70's feel, which I love and my plum hat just finishes it off Have you been loving prints this season? Do you have a easy winter day style staple? 

Well, I hope you like my look and you are enjoying styling up in this cold weather? 

Things are soo busy at the moment, I can't believe it is nearly December??!! Got lots of fashion planning coming up in the next few weeks with all the Christmas party's (first one tomorrow night!) so hope you can stop by and see what looks I am putting together. 

Happy Wednesday!

The Winter Coat

Hi Guys, 

Today's outfit post is one I am really excited about as it is one of the most important items in my winter wardrobe...my coat! 
Choosing your winter coat is a big decision, as you will wear it nearly every day, so it has to be one you love and also one you know you can pair with lots of different pieces. 
So here is my pick! 


 


 Coat-Newlook, Blouse Topshop, Skirt- Missguided
Faux Fur- H&M, Necklace- Newlook
Bag-Primark, Boots-Newlook

I have been a bit obsessed with marl since August time, it is such a easy style to wear and looks great with lots of different prints and colours. 
If I am honest I really wanted a pink coat, that was the colour I had my eye one from the start, but everyone that I tried on was just not right. I have quite short arms and nearly all the pink coats were peacock styles with the draped shoulders that did not suit me. 
So I had to move on from the pink and that was then I moved on to the marl, and I was so excited to find this is Newlook number. 
After going through what felt like every fashion website I came across this beaut and I love it! 
It is a great length and the fit is really good for my pear shape figure as it is not too bulky but still keeps me nice a warm. 
I teamed it today with my Topshop shirt, and pleather skirt, but it goes just as well with jeans and trousers too. 

I hope you like the coat and I would love to know what winter coat you have all been buying? 

Well, I am glad it is Friday tomorrow! It has been such a long week, I am ready for the weekend, and I am catching up with friends so that will be great! I hope you all have nice plans? 

Happy Thursday!

Back to Life...

Hi Guys, 

It feels like it has been so long since I posted just a regular every day outfit post, and so it feels so nice be back doing what I started the blog for in the first place. 

Today's look was something I wore to work this week and included three of my Autumn fashion staples, a tartan scarf, chunky cardigan and  floppy hat. 
At the moment I find that every day I am wearing one of these, they are like my new season outfit builders, I style up around them. 
Hat- Topshop, Cardigan-Primark, Dress- Primark
Scarf-Newlook, Boots- Newlook
Necklace-Topshop

For work a classic shift dress is soo handy, but to make it even more versatile I got one in this burgundy colour that I knew would be on trend all season and easy to team with other pieces. 
It looks great with the tartan scarf, but can look equally as good with a statement necklace or cropped blazer/jacket. Say what you like, but Primark are so good for every day essentials you can wear to work. 

We are in full cold weather clothes now and I am embracing the knitwear, tights and boots and will be posting over the next week or so some of my current favourite Autumn Winter looks, including my new winter coat, which I have been trying to pick for weeks! 

 What have you been buying for the new season?

I hope you like my look and you have had a nice weekend? Back to it tomorrow, where do the weekends go?! 

Happy Sunday!
