This bomber though guys!! I have a bit of a bomber love-in going on so been wearing them constantly at the moment, meaning they are showing up in every post. This beautiful floral embroidered one is what dreams are made of. It’s a nice thick material and something a little different to the usual satin style you see everywhere and what I usually wear. It jazzes up a plain-ish outfit and injects a little colour and fun into the mix.

I am a big big fan of the plunge neck, whether it be bodysuits, dresses or playsuits I think they look amazing. This was a quick look put together to show that for a big night out you don’t always need to get completely galmmed up to the max by going all out in a dress but you can still looks just as dressy in a plunge bodysuit, jeans and heels. Especially whent he weather is as icy cold as it is now, putting on a dress and facing the elements isn’t the most appealing idea in the world Bodysuits always look good and there are so many different styles on the market at the moment, you are sure to find one you like. It doesn’t have to be a plunge style either, this is just something I like at the moment.

February is finally here after what seemed like the longest month ever! I, like many other people, am extrememly poor after Christmas and time seems to slow down by about 10 times when you are waiting for payday. I face another long month ahead as my MOT is tomorrow and I will have my fingers crossed all day long that it passes (pray for me!). This means I can’t indulge in my usual shopping habits and won’t have much new stuff to show you this month which is not a fun prospect. Here is a really simple outfit for you to feast your eyes on and show that you can mix tailored pieces like loafers with a casual element like a bomber jacket.

If you want to save pennies this year but can’t quite kick your shopping habits (I am trying to cut down on buying so many clothes but it’s proving difficult) then I have discovered the best site. This does all the hard work for you by hunting out the latest bargains in the sale and displays all the deals in categories such as women’s sale jackets or women’s sale jeans. It means searching for a particular product is easier than ever and you don’t have to trawl the shops rummaging through sale racks. What could be better?!

This weather only calls for one thing….knitwear, knitwear and more knitwear! In my opinion you cannot have enough winter woolies in your wardrobe. I know everyone is different but I don’t tend to really get cold legs so by balancing it all out and wearing a chunky knit on the top half, it means I can bear my legs during the colder months. The cosy roll neck and boots (with thick socks, a good pair of socks really does keep you warm) means I can still wear cute items such as this snake print skirt without catching frostbite. I actually really love a jumper and skirt combo, it mixes things up as I get so bored with wearing jeans sometimes. You can always tucker a sweater into a leather skirt for a more cinched in waist, feminin shape, I personally like a baggy jumper over the skirt but you can totally mix it up.

I got sent this cute jumper to style up from the kind people at Romwe. I love its simple cable knit print and tiny coloured flecks running throughout. I would usually wear this in a super casual way but I decided to mix it up a bit and go for something different. 

I went for some faux leather trousers (admittedly these are a bit big for me now, I haven’t worn them in a while so it’s time to buy a new pair I think) to give the look a bit of a twist. The faux leather adds a real tough edge to the overall look, the same way that throwing a leather jacket over a girly dress really changes the dynamic. I still kept the look casual by wearing simple converse kicks and since it has suddenly turned pretty icy cold out I snuggled up with the oversize khaki scarf (probably my favourite scarf at the moment, it’s huge!). I added my double compartment shoulder bag and natural, minimal make up. 

My hair is almost all washed out now except for a few sections still clinging on to the purple. I am undecided whether to go all over purple again or jut let it keep fading back to blonde and stay that way. Let me know your thoughts!

As you would have seen from the high street, Christmas was made for glitter, sequins and anything sparkly. I headed out on Christmas eve with the girls for a few drinks to celebrate Christmas and have a catch up before the family festivities began and you didn’t leave the house for at least 48 hours. I wanted to dress up a bit as it was Christmas Eve and if you can’t get dolled up a bit more than normal to head to the pub then when can you? I got this amazing glitter thread plunge bodysuit a few days earlier after seeing it look fab in a picture of someone else wearing it and with the help of a friend (thanks Kneller) tracking it down. The photos don’t really do it justice, it has a small diamond pattern all over which is stitched in silver metallic thread.

Happy New Year my lovely readers!! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and lots of New Year celebrations with all your family and friends. I had the nicest break with my family, got some amazing prezzies, ate LOTS of food and caught up with my lovely friends over the festive period too.

I received this gorge dress from Shein a couple of weeks ago and have been waiting to get it up on the blog but the weather hasn’t been the most pleasant lately. How nice is the criss cross detail and low cut front? Something a bit different to a normal tunic dress. It’s probably a dress I will get so much more wear out of in the summer when I’m in my second home, Greece.
