Winter Fashion

Hey hey!

I hope you are all having a lovely run up to Christmas.

I thought I would write a little blog on my favourite winter fashion trends right now. I have a few looks that I am loving right now and as you can probably tell from my lasted Instagram posts they involve a lot of faux fur.

This jacket (similar here) is my all time favourite- the compliments I have recieved on it have been endless! It is actually my mums from nearly 20 years ago. She got it relined on the inside and it looks as good as new! I paired it with my new favourite trousers- these ‘leather look’ leggings from Next. I have hunted high and low for leggings like these that didn’t look too cheap so I was really happy to find them! Also I love this hat from H&M (similar here). It is the perfect way to make an outfit more autumnal/wintery.

Next up: knee high boots! I am well and truly in love with these boots. I have always wanted them, however, because I have long legs I have struggled to find the right length. Thankfully I found these perfect ones on ASOS and now I wear them all the time.

I love wearing them with jeans, but I think its extra cute to pair them with a skirt or dress. I have a feeling that I will be wearing them lots over the festive period!

This jacket has been in my wardrobe for 4 years now (similar here), and I bring it out every winter. I love the black and white contrast. I got it from TK Maxx and always find that they have the best faux fur jackets/coats in the Christmas sale!

And finally, this little white faux fur number was a lucky find from Very (similar here). This is a perfect little jacket for the festive period because you can dress it up or down. It would be perfect with an LBD for the evening time and is perfect during the day.

I created this daytime look with boohoo flared trousers which I’m obsessed with, a simple black top and my Louis Vuitton cross body bag.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, and if you are going shopping in the sales remember you can’t go wrong with a little faux fur!

Love always,

The Little Black Pinafore Dress

The Little Black Pinafore Dress

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a fab summer!

With Scotland only getting a few days of sunshine, I’m finding myself not being able to wear very summery clothes or dresses this year. However, I thought I would try something new this summer and buy myself a pinny dress.

I won’t lie- I used to really dislike these kind of dresses, but with them coming back into style recently, I have seen a few designs I really like. I much prefer black pinafore dresses as you can wear a lot more with them, and they can be worn in the summer or winter.

I saw this dress in New Look and had to have it! It was only £15 so it’s a bargain as well!

With pinny dresses, I personally think a top with quite a high neck should be worn underneath- not necessarily as high as I am wearing in these photos, but to counteract the deep v neck of the pinny, I would raise the neckline of the top underneath. I wore my Topshop crop top I got last summer in the sale.

I accessorised with my favourite Love Moschino bag and little black ballet pumps. I think flat shoes should be worn with pinafores- as they are quite cute little dresses- so to continue the cutsie look, a little pair of ballet pumps work well.

I finished off the outfit with my Zara light blue jacket. I am just obsessed with it! They also do a cute light pink version as well as a mustard yellow and burgundy one so definitely check them out!

I’ve added some links to some pinny dresses I really like below, as well as items to accessorise with.

I hope you enjoyed reading and have a fabulous week!

Lots of love,

Hey guys!

I am a self confessed Zara addict, and I love going into their stores and spending ages looking about at all their beautiful pieces. When I went on my holiday to Spain a few weeks ago, I couldn’t wait to get to the Zara store in Murcia’s shopping centre as its huge and has so much to offer. When I went to the store this dreamy blue leather jacket instantly caught my eye. It also comes in a gorgeous mustard yellow colour but unfortunately they didn’t have it in my size. I instantly thought the sky blue colour would go great in my spring/summer wardrobe so I just had to buy it.

I wore it out this weekend and paired it with a Topshop blue crop top (similar here) and black Topshop jeans. I wore my Geox pumps (similar here) as they are so comfy and great for a day out. I finished off the outfit with my Jaegar grey tote bag (similar here) and my new Quay Australia marble sunglasses. I am so obsessed with these sunnies! They are so cool and quirky and add some character to any outfit. I got them off ASOS as I was able to use my student discount. I couldn’t recommend Quay Australia enough- their sunglasses are amazing and come in lots of styles and colours. They are also very affordable!

That’s all for now. Have a great week!

Lots of love,

Hey guys!

I hope you are all having a fab weekend.

As I mentioned in my last post, I am obsessed with leather, so I recently bought a pair of leather detailed leggings that I have styled two different ways. These leggings are from ASOS and are only £18; so they are not too pricey- and remember that students get a 10% discount too! They are super comfy and can be worn dressed up or dressed down.

I firstly dressed up the leggings with a cute floral crop top from Topshop. This pattern is very spring/summer and is so pretty! I paired the outfit with some nude heels from New Look and matched them with a nude leather jacket. Leather on leather works really well, and makes for a very cool ensemble. I then finished the outfit off with my Louis Vuitton clutch bag. This bag actually came attached to my bigger Neverfull Louis Vuitton bag; which I will show you guys in a later post.

A blouse goes really well with these leggings too. This can create a much more casual look- just swap the heels for some flats, add a bigger bag and you’re ready to go!

I got this blouse from New Look and its one of my favourite new pieces! It is such a classy blouse and can be worn in so many ways. Its also really flowy and comfortable!

A couple of the items mentioned were bought a while ago so I will add some links to some lookalikes that are currently in shops!

By the way, Unidays is a website that gives you amazing discounts in places like ASOS, Topshop and New look. So my biggest tip of the week is to sign up with the link below, I promise you won’t regret it!
