Monochrome never fails to date. It always looks simple but chic and you can rely on monochrome when you’re having one of those days, we’ve all had time and time again, when absolutely everything you try on looks hideous. Monochrome comes and goes in the fashion world and as a trend will continue to do so for the long foreseeable future. Items like black boots and fedoras just finish off a look so well in the winter. Boots mean that you can brave it and bare your legs but still keep toasty with warm socks and a pair of go-with-everything ankle boots. This cosy teddy coat is one of the warmest coats I’ve bought in a while. Missguided have really stepped up their coat game this year and that is where I have bought the majority of mine so far. It really does keep you super toasty and the colour goes with so much too.
I got an opportunity recently to work with White Stuff recently and admittedly it’s not a site I think to go on that often when looking for clothes. Their home stuff is to die for and I have a lust list as long as my arm most of the time. I was able to pick out my favourite pieces of womenswear and there was so many gorgeous items to choose from that I found it hard to narrow it down. This longline cardigan is a dream, I love the asymetric cut which makes it longer at the front. It’s a lightweight material and the charcoal colour goes with the majority of my wardrobe.
As you will have heard me say many, many times before…..everyone needs at least 1 breton stripe top in their
wardrobe life! They are such a staple item (hence the title) and can be worked into almost any outfit. They can be worn for a casual look like I have opted here as I was just out to do a bit of shopping and a few jobs that needed doing, they can be made to look slightly more dressy by swapping the blue jeans for black rip knee jeans and the kicks for chelsea boots (you can see this look on my Instagram). These tops go with denim cut offs and flip flops in the summer months for a laid back vibe or tucked into a high waist skirt, whether its skater style and worn with ankle boots for a cute girly twist or a leather pencil skirt and some heels for an office to bar ensemble. The possibilities are endless!
Tigi Catwalk Honey & Oatmeal Twin Set: Just My Look*
I am a massive fan of Tigi Catwalk and Tigi BedHead products, when I got the chance to try something from the lovelies at Just My Look I jumped at it when I saw the Tigi Catwalk duos available. I thought that this oatmeal & honey shampoo and conditoner sounded so nice and when it arrived I was definitely not wrong. It is so heavenly and I actually enjoy hair wash days as this fills the bathroom with the most amazing smell during washing (is this really sad?! Please tell me you guys get just as excited about beauty products that smell out of this world?).

Part two of my latest outfit recap posts. These are all recent outfits I’ve worn to work or events etc in the last couple of weeks that didn’t get blogged. I quite often, as I said before, snap a quick pic in the mirror as I’m running out the house and it’s a shame that some of the pieces don’t make it to the blog until sometimes they are older items and no longer in stock online. This is why I have decided to do little recaps more often of my looks and link to the pieces while they are still available so you can get your hands on them too if any take your fancy.

I thought I would do a little recap on my latest outfits that didn’t get blogged. I quite often take a quick mirror selfie as I’m running out of the house and these are more often then not looks that don’t make it to the blog. If you follow me on Instagram you will see these and I always try to tag where items are from but I thought I would do a quick little round up of outfits so if you aren’t big on using Instagram then you can keep up to date here. I will continue to do this after I have posted a few outfits every so often and try to give direct links to as many of the poroducts as possible. Where items are no longer in stock I will try to link to as similar items as possible. Click read more below to see all the looks!

Hands up if you love a pinny? I borrowed this cute denim dress from my best friend for a trip to Italy and then I was flying straight to Greece after. We were out shopping and I saw this dress in Topshop and was about to buy it when my friend Erin said she had it so to borrow hers instead. While I was wearing it in Italy I decided I liked it too much and needed it as a new addition to my wardrobe. So sat in a little Italian cafe watching the world go by I logged on and bought it. It was like a little present waiting for me on my arrival home. The only thing that bugged me a bit when I got mine was I ordered a size down from the one I borrowed but it was so much shorter than my friends. As I was away over a month I couldn’t return it. If I could buy it again I would get the tall version as that would be about the right length, the standard one is more like petite. Never mind, I can wear this with flat sandals in the summer and this also looks fab with tights so it will be taking me through the winter months too.

This is such a simple dress but it’s just gorgeous. I seem to have gravitated towards all kinds of burgundy pieces over the last few weeks and it’s fast becoming my winter shade but it’s also a great colour for the summer too as the golden glow sets it off perfectly. I love cami style dresses for summer anyway as they are so easy to wear, comfotable as well as chic but this one has the extra added detail of a low cut v back with a frill overlay. I didn’t wear a necklace beacause I had a little flash tattoo which you can see pictured below. I felt a necklace would have looked too much and the little gold lotus tattoo was a nice alternative.
Coral is such a summer shade, it really shows off your tan and is such a gorgeous bright happy colour for the warmer months. I love the scallop edge to this dress, I really like scallop detail in general because it adds a girly twist to things and always looks cute. This dress has a plunge v front and an A-line shape to it which means it’s super comfortable! I wore the sandals I bought at the airport, it’s such a good job I got these as they were my most worn pair of sandals this summer. They are a nice nude/peach colour so they go with a lot and they gem stone detail dresses up a look. They are very dainty and went with pretty much every outfit I wore so without even realising I gravitated towards them every evening when getting ready.

How fab is this dress?? Faux suede…Tick! Dusky girly pink….Tick! Gorgeous detailing…Tick! What else do you need in a dress?! I love everything about this dress, it is just beyond amazing. I am a lover of faux suede anything, it always adds a luxe touch to your look. The colour is perfect to keep the look summery and looks even better when you have a golden glow to show off. The shredded sides though are the pièce de résistance. Its a cute girly dress from the front but turn to the side and it’s more edgy and risqué. What I loved about this dress is that I could still show off my pretty gold flash tattoos as they peeked out the side which you can see in the photos.
