I am a massive hoarder of coats and jackets, anytime there is a sale in January, I always stock up for the year to come. You ask why? So like I said I’m a coat fanatic and I’m always buying different ones throughout the year. (This can get a tad expensive). That’s why I’ll always pick out at least 2 or 3 during the sales.

I happen to actually forget I had this baby! How could I, I know! That’s what happens when you have so many, you forget what you have (face palm). Browsing through my wardrobe I found it again whilst producing a high-pitched squeal of surprise and recognition at the same time. There and then I decided this would be my new go to coat for the next few weeks.

I love how this trench can just completely transform an outfit. I could literally walk out in converse and jeans and still look somewhat sophisticated and smart (It also makes me feel like an undercover spy!). Want to know the best bit? I picked it up in the sale for £30!

Coat – Topshop/ Shirt – Primark/ Leggings – Newlook/ Shoes – River Island/ Leather jacket – Topshop

Watch – Asos/ Necklace – Newlook

 

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!

So I am pretty happy with my new coat find, as you can tell. I mean how can I not be, I saw it in Primark instantly loved the colour, last size 8 left, fit like a dream and to add the sugar coating, the coat was in the sale for £5! I obviously had to buy it. I love buying pieces like this coat as I see it as a statement piece in it self, you could literally wear this coat with an all black outfit and you will still stand out.

Another find I’m loving right now are the Chelsea boots, the height is one that I can actually walk in and they are unbelievably comfortable! I like the fact that they are suede as this automatically transforms an outfit. With them only being £15, you cant go wrong.

Be my valentine?

Yes it’s that time of the year again, Valentine’s Day, the day of love, soppy cards, excess cheese, crying singles, loved up couples and all things in between. Lovely time of the year isn’t it? Since I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day as a single lady this year, I still see no harm in dressing myself up in a lovely outfit, treating myself to a lovely night in watching probably some of the worst romantic comedies out there, but hey ho, it’s what the day is for!

I thought I would share some ideas on what to wear for Valentine’s Day, whether it is a coffee date during the day, movie in the late afternoon or the full works in the evening. Here are the top 3 outfits for me.

OUTFIT 1: Coffee date

OUTFIT 2: Movie date

OUTFIT 3: Dinner date

Fall in line

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

Flower Power!

Hi guys, hope you’re all good and enjoying the weather, the past week has been absolutely amazing, the weather literally has put me in the greatest mood. I had the greatest weekend, an amazing boat ride and beach walk on Saturday and great family BBQ on the Sunday.  (I’ll post a few pics below) I really hope the good weather continues! The post continues below girlies. xx

Outfit I wore on Saturday, playsuit from Primark – £10.00, black footless tights from New Look – £5.00, yellow cropped jumper from H&M – £14.99, black fringe bag from Primark – £5.00 and finally round brown shades from H&M – £3.99!

On the rowing boat! 😀

The view from the boat!

Finally my summer read of the moment – ‘East of the Sun’ – AMAZING so far!

Hope you enjoyed the pics, now back to the post..

So when the sun finally came out I kind of realised I don’t have any summer outfits, as many of you probably panicked about. I literally stood near my wardrobe and could not find anything to wear, so decided to do some shopping as usual, I picked up some cute little dresses from H&M & Primark, as well as some floral printed leggings plain shirts/tee’s and finally some skirts. I’ll do a haul post soon to show you guys what I bought.

So anyway whilst I was shopping I came across some really cute floral jeans from River Island, but I don’t like buying certain things straight away without having checked out other stores, so I gathered here a few of my favourite floral print jeans, I’m still trying to decide which ones to buy however, so some help maybe??

River Island – £40.00

I absolutely LOVE these jeans, I like the fact that the base colour is white, it makes it a lot easier to wear pair with a range of tops. The print is not too big but not too small either, now something like this I would pair with a simple white slightly baggy tee and some black sling back.

Asos – £35.00

I also like these jeans, but prefer the above for summer, but knowing our British summer, we do have the occasional bad day/week, and these jeans are good for pairing with knits and boots as well as the odd tee. I would pair this with a black & white or an emerald coloured boxy jumper, although a white tee would work just as well.

Topshop – £40.00

I adore these jeans, I love the fact that they are so different, but for me they are a little too experimental and since I’m a first timer with floral jeans, I think I may give something a little more subtle a try and then go for something kooky like these. I love the fact that it has colours such as coral and yellow which make it easier for you to pair tops with. I would wear these with a deep yellow asymmetric top with layers of necklaces!

That’s all for now guys, until the next post.

Much Love
