Winter Fashion

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,

Rachael

Dressing for Spring!

Fashion

Hey hey!

So it’s finally Spring, which means it’s nearly Summer… my favourite time of the year, yay! And most importantly, Spring/Summer is my favourite time to buy clothes so I thought I would share some of my new Spring wardrobe.

I have just been in London (a nice escape from revision) so was able to shoot a couple of my outfits down there!

Up first is my more casual look…

Missguided shirt, Boohoo blazer, ASOS jeans, Mango Sunglasses, ASOS choker (similar here), New Look mules and Louis Vuitton Neverfall handbag.

First of all, the sleeves on this shirt! I fell in love with them when I went into the Missguided store in Westfield. I thought it would go perfectly with this blazer, with the sleeves peaking through! Big sleeves are really in and I think this style will continue, so grab this shirt (or similar) whilst you can!

And finally, these mules are the shoes I’ve been looking for this Spring/Summer! They are also available in light pink so I have my eye on them. I love how Gucci have made mules so fashionable now, and lots of high street stores are following the trend, yay!

It’s no secret that I love chokers, so when I saw this star design one I fell in love! The Mango cat eye sunglasses are the perfect way to finish an outfit off!

My second look…

ASOS dress and Moschino scarf (similar here).

This look is definitely more summery! I’m not a huge fan of bright colours or prints but I love them in small doses. This Moschino scarf is to die for! The print is a perfect pop for a simple outfit! Fun bandanas and scarves are starting to make a come back so I am excited to experiment!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Lots of love,

Valentines Day Inspiration

Fashion, Lifestyle

Hey hey!

Since it’s Valentines day next week, I thought I would help you girls out with date night ideas- whether it’s with your girls or with that special someone. Also boys, if you are struggling to get your partner a present, I’ve got you covered too!

So lets start with date night outfits…

Missguided red dress- perfect for drinks!

Mesh shirts are my new favourite thing! You can wear a plain top underneath or show off a cute bra! This one is from Topshop and I love the pussy bow detail.

The bandeau detail on this Pretty Little Thing jumpsuit is to die for!

Now lets talk lingerie..

I am a self- confessed underwear addict and have extra drawers in my flat just so that I can store it all- so I like to think I am at least a little bit knowledgeable on the subject! Whether it’s for you’re other half or you just want to treat yourself, I’m going to show you some of my favourites.

I have decided to choose red and black lingerie as I think for Valentines day, those are your best picks! But if you want some other colours most of the lingerie I picked comes in alternative colours- so go for it!

Anything personalised is a fab idea for a present! Not on the High Street is great to find personalised gifts.

I hope you enjoyed reading and have a fab Valentines day whatever you are doing!

London Street Style

Fashion

Hey everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying the festive period and indulging as much as you can!

I just spent a few days in London doing some shopping and sightseeing. Whenever I am in London I love people watching and seeing what everyone is wearing- the London Street Style is so chic and diverse!

On the first day of shopping I wore a very casual outfit for shopping on New Bond Street.  We visited Chanel, Louis Vuitton and of course Victoria’s Secret! When it comes to shopping I recommend wearing something that is comfy and easy to take on and off for when you are trying clothes on, like jeans or a dress.

Here I am wearing Topshop Jamie Jeans, a Zara Striped shirt with a plain black jumper on top and an ASOS grey peacoat. One of my new favourite bags worn here is from Zara.

On the second day I wore my favourite faux fur coat I got from TK Maxx 2 years ago. I always love going into TK Maxx in the winter as they have the most amazing one off coats that can instantly make an outfit stand out. Faux fur coats do exactly that as you can wear an all black, plain outfit but as soon as you add some fur, the outfit becomes way more interesting.

My boyfriend bought me the bag I’ve been wanting for ages from Dune for Christmas, so I was very excited to wear it with this outfit!

My skin has been horrific recently (probably due to all the wine and chocolate I have been eating) so when I was in London, I didn’t want the pollution to make my skin even worse, so I went for a really simple, minimal make up look. This meant my skin was less clogged up and could breathe more.

IMG_5302.JPGFullSizeRender-3.jpgFullSizeRender-1.jpg

I finished off the look with some cat eye sunglasses from ASOS!

I hope you all enjoy your NYE celebrations and see you in 2017!

Love, Rachael xx
