Hello all and welcome back to another outfit of the day post, hope you are all well over, or at least trying to get over the huge, epically hyped about ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. I think I am, I think. So as we all know for at least a month before the release and at least a week after the sudden ‘grey’ colour in fashion seemed to have outweighed rest of the colours all together.
So hey I thought id play my part in it too, I didn’t go as excessive; just a little number for me was enough.

Hi there guys, so I have been thinking and have decided that I want to do an Autumn edit on the blog, once a week for the next 6 weeks. It’ll include the top 6 dresses; shirts, trousers, coats, knitwear and shoes that I like and think will be best suited for the autumn season.
So this week I will be starting with dresses, I have selected the top 6 dresses I have loved and think will be amazing pieces to have in your wardrobe for the Autumn season.
Heres a link to where you can find these dresses, 1.Topshop 2.Zara 3. H&M 4. Lavish Alice 5. Missguided 6. Warehouse
Hope you managed to find at least one dress that you will be adding to your wardrobe!
Considering we live in one of the most weather challenged countries in the world, it’s always a nice surprise when finally we are graced with a few weeks of the summer sun.
The trends this summer aren’t as daring as the past few summers, now that the designers have caught up on the reality behind the British summer, and how abruptly our weather can change during the day. Go out looking like a Greek goddess, come back looking like a windswept, haggard nightmare!
Not saying this summer, its still not about the strappy dresses, denim shorts and kimonos, because it is, however it’s supplied with a good dosage of lightweight outerwear, to help aid us during the day.
During the day I’m all for denim shorts and strappy tops, but in the evening with the cool breeze and the fading sun, I prefer something a little warmer. Pairing these printed trousers alongside a simple print t-shirt and brocade like lightweight jacket, leaves me feeling cool enough for the warm evening.

One of my favourite shirts at the moment, picked up this beauty from Primark and its one those pieces that you can wear with pretty much anything. I love layering it under jumpers and coats, or even wearing it alone. The shoes I wasn’t sure of when I first bought them and was actually thinking of returning them but then once they were on, I knew i had to keep them! They boyish and chunky and I love to wear them with something extremely feminine and create my own style, I like to add a little punk to my pretty!
Well hello there and may I say a happy 2014! Aah another new year is upon us, is it just me that remembers January 2013 like it was yesterday??! Time is going way too fast for my liking; we need to slow things down a little. Anyway my dears, I do hope you all had good new years and are ready to get on with your start to the year.
We had and are still having a pretty bad winter, like that’s a major surprise from all the previous years of harsh winters we’ve endured, and I clearly don’t point out the obvious (Sorry).
Coats. Coats. Coats. I am in love with coats. I need to have a new one every year and where do I find a new one every year? In the sale people, that’s where. This has become like a tradition for me now, purchasing a new coat for the following year in the xmas sales, I mean it makes sense right? Why buy a coat that’s £125 when I know I can get it for £40?!
This is the new baby I bought; I like my coats to be simple, dark and most of all warm. Comfort comes first for me, well in the winter anyway! Coat was £100 and went down to £40, from Topshop. The black and white stole is also in the sale from river island, was £20 and went down to £12.
coat – topshop-£40 (sale), stole – river island – £12 (sale), dress – topshop – £10 (sale), shoes – topshop – £12 (sale), watch – asos £25
black jeans – river Island – denim shirt – topshop – jumper – topshop (sale) – black & gold statement necklace – primark – shoes – primark – geek glasses – Camden market (I apologise for the bad quality images, I didn’t have my camera this weekend and had to settle with capturing them on my phone 😦 )
Today’s outfit is very casual, it’s a nice sunny day but it’s still very cold outside, so I thought better to be safe and add on a few layers. This jumper was a sale find and because I liked it too much I decided to buy the only size left which was 10, unfortunately no 8’s. It was a baggy boxy style anyway so I thought an extra size up shouldn’t make too much of a difference. I love the colour of it, you can’t see it properly in the images ( sorry again) it’s a mixture of blues, reds and orange and it is so comfy, I so much prefer wearing baggy jumpers, especially when you can layer up underneath them and not feel like you can’t breathe!
Worn with a simple denim shirt, so that the contrast between the shirt and the jumper would stand out a little more, I paired it with black jeans and brown brogues. I normally don’t like gold jewellery, but because this necklace had some black incorporated into it, I thought why not go out on a limb and try it! I love it, it’s not heavy like a few statement necklaces are and because of its colouring it works well with various outfits.
How was everyone’s weekend?? I actually had a very good weekend, had nothing planned so a few friends surprised me came over for the weekend and it was SO good to have them over, the weekend consisted of late night talks and catching up really. I HATE the fact that the weekend goes by so quickly; it’s just when you’ve got into the swing of things and start enjoying yourself you realise its Monday the next day! Ah well I guess it keeps us on our toes eh?
Hope you all have a good evening..
Until next time..
