Styling for Autumn



I finally feel like Autumn is really upon us - which means it is now appropriate to layer up, pop the fluffy socks on under your boots and embrace those nude colours! 

Firstly, apologies for the absence of a Fashion Friday post, I found myself unable to piece together an outfit I felt happy with, so I was weak and gave up - ha! 

Coat: F&F
Shirt: TKMaxx
Jeans: New Look
Boots: Asos

This assembly of items is really just aiming to excite you all about Autumn and to make you think about how you want to dress for the chilly weather this season. Personally, I find Autumn is a fantastic time of year because it's cold enough to feel cosy in all of your layers, however you don't have to worry about being genuinely cold because it's not quite reached freezing yet!! Also, I am really looking forward to wearing boots and warm socks and layering up with wool jumpers and shirts so that when I'm out walking the dog in the fields covered in crispy golden leaves, I can really get a feel for this time of year. 

So, the coat I am wearing is F&F from Tesco and I actually purchased this last year, close to Christmas, and got it for a bargain price. I love the colour and also love the style, a long coat really does keep you so much warmer than a bomber jacket or leather jacket might, and therefore it can last you through both Autumn and Winter. I paired this with a combination I've been wearing a lot recently - the shirt and jeans. The shirt is a great staple shirt as its relatively simple and can be worn both under a jumper and over a vest top. However, my real love is for these jeans from New Look. I absolutely love these because they are beyond comfortable, are very tight fitting which is surprising as I usually struggle with jeans being baggy at the ankle because I'm too short for them! These jeans tick all the boxes, and I feel they pair well with black and white best. I would 100% recommend New Look for their AW15 collection because they really do have some absolute gems - both jeans but also their jumpers and tops are on point! Last of all, the boots. These ankle boots were purchased last year and I bought these from Asos. I constantly find myself browsing on Asos for boots as I cannot ever choose a single pair because they are all so lovely - so much choice! However I bought these as they are flats and at the time I owned mostly heeled shoes. I actually got them for my holiday to Amsterdam because I assumed I'd be doing a lot of walking - which I did. Another great thing about these boots is that they are very spacious and comfortable which means you can fit some snug socks underneath without anyone knowing - sneaky! 

Hope you liked today's post! 
See you soon!

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

Hello!
So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …

HEY DUDES!

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow game...lol

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…
