Zip blazer

Crochet top- Republic
Palazzo pants- Inlovewithfashion
Jacket- Wearall
Shoes- Boden

This zip blazer is great to dress up an outfit although the sleeves are bit short on me even in the size 10 (this is often a problem for me I must have really long arms or something?) I fixed this by rolling up the sleeves to make it a 3/4 length sleeve which I actually think suits the style of the jacket better.

Special mention goes to these shoes which I have worn so many times this winter. My Mum actually bought them for me as a present for helping her out with her Boden party. Borden are kind of a middle aged ladies catalogue company that do good quality clothes. The animal print just really adds something to a plain black outfit and you really wouldn't know where they are from!

Different shades of grey

Images by Anthony Kaye

Body- Yayer
Jacket- H&M
Shoes- ASOS
Necklace- Urban Outfitters

We took these pictures outside a pub and the orange glow on my face is from a nearby flood light. I actually quite like the effect. It's been very frustrating the past few weeks with it going dark so early it's hard to find the time to take pictures while it's still light enough.

I've been incorporating more dressy items into my wardrobe recently in preparation for the festive season. I really like the fit of this skirt although unfortunately it is very tight on my waist so I would recommend getting a size up it you're thinking of buying it.

I've also shared a link to my necklace as a few people have asked me where it's from.

Christmas party outfit #1

Images by Anthony Kaye

Jumpsuit- Topshop
Coat- River Island (similar here)
Boots- Underground England

With Christmas being just around the corner (and the panic starting to set in) I’m looking forward to all the Christmas parties and events coming up. This was another purchase I was suppose to return but accidentally kept. You can’t see it so much in the pictures but the glitter on this jumpsuit is sooo sparkly and I just really can’t wait to wear it to a party. Topshop also do this jumpsuit in gold foil which I was very tempted by although I kind of felt a little like a super hero. 

I tend to have one or two party outfits a year and wear them on rotation but this year I’m going away to Canada after Christmas for New Year so that’s probably a good enough excuse to have a few more. I should probably start buying some warm clothing and be practical because I feel the cold so much. I’m going to freeze…

Outsiders Apparel

Hat- Horsebird
Shoes- ASOS

Here's a new street wear brand to check out- Outsiders Apparel. They have a strong range of mens and ladies graphic t-shirts, hoodies and hats. Lots of monochrome for the Winter!

I've worn these pants before on the blog but I think they really suit this street inspired look.

I feel like I could really do with some more snapbacks in my collection. any brands which would like me to feature one on the blog please get in touch.

My green hair is really looking faded at the moment as I had to let it was out for a hair modeling job on Sunday. Shall I keep like like this for a bit longer or dye it asap?

Yes Yellow

Shoes- ASOS

If you're wondering why I look a little bit strange it's probably because I'm wearing gold lipstick. Although I wasn't to sure about how it came out in the pictures I actually like the change from the strong colours I normally wear. With the shimmer in real life it looks a lot less nude. 

I'm really beginning to despair about the pant-top ratio in my wardrobe so this batwing tee was a welcome addition. I seem to have a thing for buying trousers at the moment and I have barely bought a single top in recent months! I particularly come unstuck when I'm dressing for work and realize all my favorite tops are cropped. With the cold weather slowly drawing in I think now is probably the time to start buying woolly jumpers and ponchos which, incase you haven't guessed are not my favorite thing to buy.

River Island is quickly becoming one of my favorite shops. I've resisted buying a parka with a neon yellow fur trim but really I'm just praying it hits the sale.
