WINTER WONDERLAND

I'm back again! After a long and intense break from blogging whilst uni took an almighty hold I can finally get back into the routine. It's been ridiculously cold since my last outfit post, which can only mean more layers. Lots more chunky knitwear and fur covering every inch of me to avoid the biting cold was a priority yesterday when I took a trip to winter wonderland with the girls. Every form of winter accessory was needed, but a Christmassy adventure wouldn't be complete without a Christmassy jumper - this is my take on the classic which I received as a present last year, made even better thanks to the cat face and the pink! As this was the centre piece, pink became the central colour of the look (surprise surprise), with some cream fluffy accents and of course my pom pom had to be included despite it being blue. But most importantly, my new fluffy skirt! I have tried all manner of fluffy edged pieces on the high street, but had so far failed to find the perfect one that suited; I finally spotted this one and with a 50% discount offer it was impossible to resist. It is a lovely material and is a slimming, softening fit with a concealed zip. It certainly kept me warm whilst wandering through a magical Hyde Park yesterday! We had a fabulous girly festive day out, filled with food (too much), hot chocolate and fun! (Oh no, my inner Christmas elf is coming out for the season) - I would definitely recommend a trip to Winter Wonderland to get you in the Christmas spirit!

Apologies for the grainy or dark look to some of these shots, the street was in shadow at the time that we shot it, but I just had to have the pink background for this look so some quality was compromised. More winter looks are finally on their way, especially when I return home for the holidays next week!

BLACK FRIDAY




Hello everyone, it's been a while.

This is a quick post to let you know about the unmissable offer Oh My Love London are doing this Black friday:

30% off EVERYTHING with the discount code: BACKTOBLACK

This is including their new boutique collection! I suggest everyone has a look at all the beautiful pieces on their website, I already have my eye on so many gorgeous things and have put together a quick wish list. It's just the excuse you need to find that perfect Christmas party dress, or maybe even presents for others - if you can bear to share the discount!











Happy shopping!

GONE WITH THE WIND

The fur coat is out! One of my favourite pieces I have ever bought in my whole wardrobe, I came across this furry beauty at a vintage fair last year. Don't worry, its not real; I'm not that kind of girl! Vintage is a fever that so many in fashion have caught or want to catch. Personally, I've scoured charity shops far and wide and maybe only ever found a couple of things that were worth buying. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places. I was starting to think that I was just not cut out for that kind of shopping - but vintage is something I can tap into! With my interest in fashion history and history in general, I love to think that there's a real story behind the clothes I buy, even if it is marginally more expensive than popping to the local charity shop. This lovely piece of outerwear has served me so well - a worthy investment! Not only does it keeps me cosy and protected from the bitter winter wind (which has decided to intensify recently, clearly shown in this shoot), but it has also been the star of a number of my uni photography styling projects. The colour is unusual too; not quite white and not quite grey - its a perfect wolfy hybrid! I wanted to show it off in it's first appearance, so chose this simple fishnet panel white skater dress and my trusty wedges. I also treated myself to a new MAC lipstick last week, as I needed a little pick-me-up - I chose a matte 'Diva' - MAC definitely knows how to cheer a girl up!

My uni workload is overwhelming at the moment, so I'm forced to let blog posts take a back seat for a while - I will be posting more sporadically, but will be back in full force at Christmas and in the new year!
