LFW Day 1

Camo vest- Missguided*
Camo Trousers- Missguided*
Snapback- Stussy
Jacket- Topshop

This fashion week has taught me that sometimes warmth does come before fashion. After waiting outside for 45 minutes in the freezing cold to get into a show I reallllllllly wish I'd worn a huge coat or something. Anyway lesson learnt.

I adore coloured camo and the colours in this two piece are just subtle enough for it to be really wearable. Missguided are just so on point. I'm loving their vibes and it just has to be said that the quality is not compromised at all for the price. 

You may also have noticed I dyed my hair dark blue for a change! Let me know what you think.

Red on red

Jumper- Cow Vintage
Leggings- Betsey Supernova*
Cap- Stussy
Shoes- Adidas

I’ve always had a thing for coordinating colours within an outfit and I’m particularly enjoying bold colours at the moment like red, yellow and cobalt blue. Red is a current favourite for me. It’s been a while since I’ve really embraced wearing red so I think I’ve probably gone a bit crazy with it. It’s such a sticking colour and works really well for people like me with dark hair and pale skin. 

I also bought a lot of new vintage clothes at the weekend. It’s really great to find things that are a little bit unusual and It’s so nice to wear things that you know you’re unlikely to see anyone else wearing. Manchester is a great place for vintage shopping. I must make the effort to get into the centre more often!

Betsey supernova kindly sent me these leggings. They have some really quirky designs which are all handmade. Definitely worth checking out.

Leopard Print

Blazer- River Island
Belt- Stussy @ Dr Jay's

I have a real obsession with leopard print. A lot of people seem to think it's tacky and my Mum is forever telling me that "brown is not my colour" but I wear it all the same. I had to have this jumpsuit as soon as I saw it on the ASOS website. I wore it on my birthday night out a few weeks ago and I have basically been waiting for another opportunity to wear it again ever since. I feel like the blazer makes it look a little less tacky. 

Also has anyone else fallen into the trap of getting an ASOS premier account and then subsequently buying everything from there because it's FREE next day delivery every time!?

I've had a bit of a wave of optimism this week I think it's because it's been a little bit lighter and I even went for a short walk in the sunshine today even though it was still freezing. I also got a new phone with free Spotify. Unlimited music makes me very happy. I Hope everyone else is having a positive week.

Snow Days

Sweater- Yayer
Leggings- ASOS
Shoes- ASOS
Hat- Roots

I thought I'd take advantage of the snowy weather and take some pictures in the snow. My back garden still has snow now as it's been too cold to melt. There's no sign of the Winter coming to an end.

Love this Yayer sweat as it's really warm without the need for an extra layer underneath and looks nice with just leggings. I got these leggings from ASOS a few weeks ago and I was hoping they would be a little thicker like the yellow River Island once I have. I was quite disappointed that even though they cos £22 they are very thin. I do like check though so I decided to keep them despite that.

Apocalyptic Weather

Skirt- Leggsington
Shoes- Doc Martens

I did originally title this post apocalyptic hippie but I changed it to apocalyptic weather because that is exactly what it has been today. Snow, hail, sleet and winds. It took me two hours to get to work this morning and I suspect it will take the same to get home. I keep glancing worriedly out the window and hoping it will improve. I don’t know if January can get much more gloomy. I’m so ready for it to warm up and be Summer again. Especially now the high street is starting to bring out all the summer clothes, I want to wear palazzo pants and crop tops!

Here’s another warm cosy outfit. Every morning at the moment I’m just thinking about how many layers I can get on my body. This certainly seems like an appropriate outfit for today.
