Scarf Print Trouser


|| Jumper - boyfriends wardrobe || Trousers - French Connection ||
|| Leather Jacket - USC (similar here) || 
|| Boots - H&M || Bag - Primark ||

Scarf prints will stay close to my heart for eternity. The trousers I am wearing here are so silky to touch and feel quite thin, yet they seemed to keep my legs nice and warm even though it was quite a chilly day! I find it quite hard to wear navy, as navy doesn't really go with black (is this a universal rule or is it just me?) As I literally had no other comfy shoes to wear on a tourist-y kind of day around London that would have looked better than these shoes - which by the way seem to go with everything ever, I decided to go for them AGAIN. (soz) I then accessorised with my regular-on-smile-at-style black bag and a black leather jacket to bring the outfit together and harmonise all of the colours.
P.S how amazing is the colour of the sky in these images? Perfect timing or what!

|| Mules - French Connection || Bag* - Boohoo||

I am absolutely in love with this top! I love anything shiny and extra terrestrial like - I would probably wear tin foil if it was socially acceptable. I purchased these shoes at a French Connection sample sale, as soon as I saw them I literally grabbed them as quick a it was physically possible! They are so chic! With this outfit, I went for a casual/smart kind of look and pulled the outfit together with the black jacket and shoes. I love the irony of the clutch, you can see the slogan on it clearly in the picture below, it reads 'Designer Handbag' when it obviously isn't! Love it!

DANGER!!! *Ross Voice*



|| Coat - French Connection || Skirt - French Connection || Shoes - H&M || Hat - Market || 
|| Bag - Market ||

Don't ask about the name of the post, it is pretty awkward for anyone who doesn't watch Friends (who doesn't?) I had one of my mental blockage thingys again where I can't think of a name for a post. It always fascinates me when I see bloggers give their posts really creative names. Today my post is galled DANGER because I am simply standing in the middle of a road and Ross shouting 'DANGER' at Rachel and Pheobe in the one with Unagi stuck in my mind so I just thought I'd go with that! 
As you can see there is a lot of French Connection gear in this outfit and there are more to come. This is not because I have fabulously won the lottery and can afford high end high street clothes, it is simply because there were two sample sales at work recently and I went a little crazy seen as though everything was super super cheap (I'm talking like a fiver for a top!) I did get a little carried away but hey ho this kind of thing doesn't happen very often! although I got a few close ups, I didn't manage to get any of the skirt but it is amazing, Ill have to feature it on here again soon so you can get a proper look! The Coat that I purchased (at only £30 may I add!) is actually on the website at the moment so you can get a better look at that there if you wanted!

Company Magazine Style The High Street



|| Top - Market || Skirt - French Connection || Boots - Missguided || Bag - French Connection ||

Just over a week ago, I attended Company Magazines first ever Bloggers Style The High Street event. I had so much fun meeting other bloggers and the fashion show was great. For the fashion show, and the main focus of the event, the eight selected fashion bloggers showcased their styling of a high street shop. I was yet again an incredibly rubbish blogger and forgot to charge my camera AND my phone - yes BOTH. I managed to get a few snaps of my outfit and a few shots of the first installment of the show which you can find a little further on in the post. The only part of the fashion show I managed to take photos of before my camera died on me was Patricia Bright's styling of Oasis which I have to say was actually my fav (and no, not because it has the same name as the band that I have an unhealthy obsession with). The best part of the whole thing was that it wasn't just an ordinary walk up - walk back down kind of show; there were two male dancers and even the models got involved with a bit of dancing too! if they do another event like this next year I strongly advise you to go. Even though I won't be living in London, I will definitely be taking a trip down so I can attend again! 

Thank you for reading,

Lots of love

I Couldn't Think Of A Name For A Post, So Instead I wrote This


|| Coat - Forever 21 || Top - H&M || Jeans - Gap via Charity Shop || Bag - Fiorelli || Shoes - H&M ||

Total mental blockage at the moment. I can't even think of a name for this post, even though I could have literally described something I was wearing - because that is what the post is... I guess that's what happens sometimes though (more than sometimes for me as it goes). So I have literally worn this Forever 21 coat nearly every single day since I bought it - defos worth the £56 I spent on it, even if it was only Forever 21! It was the only style of coat in this length that actually seemed to suit the winter weather as most I have seen are so thin it is unbearable! To be honest, I probably could have just bought a thin one now I look at it, it has only really turned into winter just now, it seemed to be summer one day and winter the next - completely skipping autumn! 
As I hinted in my last post, these jeans were a total steal from a charity shop (not literally). I say this because they were only £4 and vintage Gap. I have been looking for this kind of fit for ages; it seemed to be quite hard to find some that suited me as the 'mom' fit usually has a waist that isn't high enough for my liking and more than likely goes baggy and loose around my bum - if you haven't noticed, my bum is flatter than a piece of card board. I have to say though, these jeans are the perfect fit and even if they weren't, they were still £4, and I would have probably convinced myself they were perfect anyway! 
I HAVE to talk about these boots. If you scroll down or select 'see more' you can get a closer look at them. I noticed them in the corner of my eye whilst in H&M and basically knew at that instant I would be buying them that day. My friend Naomi actually said that she thought they kind of resembled the shoes that Bratz dolls would have come with when we were younger - you know the ones that you just popped off and the whole foot came off too? Now I can't stop thinking about it and now I am longing to be as fabulous as a Bratz doll one day!

I have done it again, thanks for getting to the end of my ramble, for someone with a mental blockage I have talked a lot on this post! I hope you enjoyed!
