Flowers in the Wind

Good afternoon people! It's been 5 days since Christmas and I'm already missing it! It really is my favourite time of year. I've been completely spoilt as per and I couldn't be more grateful to my loved ones. My new years resolution this year is to work harder on my blog, to post more and to move onto YouTube. I've already got videos planned that I want to film, I just need to practice and play around with lighting and backgrounds before I start.

Anyway, moving onto my next outfit post...
I previewed this on my Instagram a bit more than a week ago now, I just haven't had the time to post it due to the Christmas rush. But here it is.

I was sent this amazing coat from Style London. I'm completely overwhelmed with the love I have for this. It is of such high quality, the fit is STUNNING and the design and colours are to die for. It's slightly thin for the temperatures we are feeling currently, but is perfect for a mild day to spruce up an outfit. I urge you to check out their collection.

I styled the coat with my simple black joni jeans from Topshop and my new white boxy tee. I was sent the top from a brand called Cocoboo Loves, they have some really stylish items, I'm becoming a little addicted to their Instagram to be honest. Their website isn't great so I'd suggest following them on their social media pages and contact them via that for purchases. 

I then wore my new Public Desire ankle boots. They are different to anything I've had before. They are a shiny, rusty, burgundy colour with a zip up the front and a pointed toe. I love them! To finish off the outfit I wore a couple of my new pieces of jewellery which I was kindly sent by a company called Bethan Joy LondonI really suggest you checking out their site if you are looking for classy and stylish pieces. They look so expensive and classy, I am in love, thank you Bethan Joy!

Red, White and Grey

Just a quick outfit post on this cold Saturday evening. I dislike what I look like in these pictures so I apologise for that, but this scarf/stole just really needed a post of its own.
Yes I'm wearing my thigh highs again, I'm not even sorry.

This is one of my first posts indoors and I don't really like it. So tomorrow I'm hoping to shoot a few outfits outside and get back to normal.

Getting back to this outfit, I've just paired this fabulous scarf with a simple wine coloured skirt to match the it, a plain white top and my thigh highs. This is an outfit I could easily wear out shopping or to dinner with one of my many coats!

Christmas Gift Guide

So it's 28 days until Christmas.

If you're anything like me then I suspect you have merely scratched the surface of present buying. I'm definitely the type that would consider myself to be organised but it all honesty, I leave my Christmas shopping till the last minute. A trait I have yet to shake.
I use excuses such as, "I will wait for pay day until I start buying anything" or, "I haven't found the 'perfect' gift yet" or even, "I have loads of time to get stuff". It then seems to shock me when it is a week before the big day and I am without gifts for my family and friends.

This year I'm determined to be more organised, (I know, 28 days to go isn't exceptionally organised), however, this post is without a doubt going to help me and hopefully any of you that also need ideas and motivation to begin your Christmas shopping.

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday on our doorstep, I feel this is a perfect time to post a gift guide for you to see what you might like to put under the tree for your loved ones this Christmas.

Happy shopping lovelies! I've also got a cheeky Missguided code coming your way in a couple of days, so keep your eyes peeled!
Next, Very, Amazon, Sensationail and Asda all have some great offers on at the moment too!

Dreaming of the Big Apple

Today's post is one of my faves. When I was scouting out my thigh high's, I was super eager to make sure they suited outfits outside the fabulous skirt/dress with bare leg combo. I wanted to see them worn with jeans really badly, but it was a rarity if I saw any posts that styled them in a more casual way. So this is me styling up my boots with jeans, which sees me completing a casual and acceptable outfit to wear in the day.

So obviously I am rocking my thigh highs (which are still fabulous and everything my dreams are made of). I've styled them with my dark denim skinny joni jeans, a simple vest top, a leather jacket and my trusty fedora. I literally can't get enough of this outfit because it is so casual but ticks all the fashion boxes at the same time.

How cute is this top though? I've been struggling with casual tops for a while now. So I went on a mission for some that I can throw on with jeans at the weekends. I came across these vest tops with low drop arms and a high neck in River Island and loved them. It is so easy to layer them up and the slogan tee is really on trend at the moment. They have a massive variety but this one stood out to me as very 'Sex and the City'-esque design and the fact it says NYC is just an added bonus.

The Boots

Okay so it was my 22nd birthday on Tuesday so I'm having a 'lets go out and drink so we forget how old I am' weekend. I'm currently nursing last nights hangover, I'm genuinely scared of what Birmingham will bring tonight with my girls, like is tomorrow's hangover going to be worse, surely not?

Anyway, back to my next outfit post. This is the first to feature the boots. I'm referring to them as 'the boots' because they are THE BOOTS. I want to wear them always and forever, they instantly transform an average outfit into one that you cannot repeat enough! So please be warned this is not the last outfit which will feature them! I managed to bag mine when River Island re-stocked them, I had my eyes on the Asos Ka-Ching boots (identical to the RI ones) but they were sold out and it seemed hopeless to think a popular size 4 will be re-stocked so RI saved me from a deep depression. No seriously, I felt empty without them, only they could fill that void. My boyfriend had to deal with my overdramatic view on this, much to his dismay. Anyway, if you are still after a pair the only available ones are from Lamoda I think, but please be quick because they will sell out. They are like gold dust!

Right, continuing, I wore a simple black skater skirt with this gorgeous grey knitted roll neck jumper from my fave online shop at the moment, Missguided. I finished the look with the coat that I was lucky enough to be gifted by the lovelies at Diva Dames. This is a website that offers affordable on-trend clothes, absolutely perfect if you're wanting to treat yourself but can't afford to go crazy. Take a look and see what you think.
