Faux Fur Love

ffl1

Its official, I am in love with my faux fur coat! 

Well, winter has definitely been thrust upon us in London which means freezing cold hands,feet, face, ears…basically just everything for me.

 Oh joy.

However, not all is lost and I am in fact, a little partial to a cold winters day/night so long as its not accompanied by torrential downpours and blistering winds, which of course never happens in England…

Possibly the only good thing about winter (besides having a valid excuse to spend evenings in doors, with your heating turned up to full blast and shoving your face with an unholy amount of junk food to add to your `protective winter layer *ahem*) is that you call pull out all of your favourite winter clothes. For me, thats everything and anything that has enough thermal layering to keep a full-grown hippopotamus snug. Because I get soooooo cold. Thats where this ASOS faux fur coat comes out to play! Not only is it unbelievably warm but its super `this season` too. Yassss ladies, faux fur is in and freezing cold nips are…err…out.

But seriously, I love it so much! My jeans are from River Island by the way- one of THE ONLY places I will ever buy my jeans from. I find it so hard to find jeans that actually fit properly and are simultaneously flattering as I have such odd-shaped legs! But River Island (and on occasion, Toyshop) never seem to fail. Despite being `skinny jeans` they’re actually incredibly stretchy so I can still wear them AND maintain full circulation in my legs. Double points!!

Happy wintering y’all!

So New Look just upped its summer outfit game!!

Whilst out and about picking up a few groceries this weekend, I decided to pop into my local New Look to see if I could find something I could quickly throw on as I had (yet again) dressed completely inappropriately for the weather and had worked up quite the sweat! This cute little floral number was practically calling out to me as I browsed through their summer collection and was the bargain price of £20!! Twenty bleeding pounds! I’m a huge fan of off-the-shoulder dresses and tops (incase you hadn’t already noticed!) their so feminine and just perfect for summer.

As the material is pretty loose, I would pick up a dress size or two smaller than your normal size, I’m a size 8-10 generally but had to pick up a 6 in this number to get a bit more of a fitted look.

You can thank me later!

Barbie Girl

Im a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world……

Im a Barbie girl, in a barbie world…… 

Warning, this post consists of some seriously posy photos! As you can tell, I still haven’t managed to perfect the whole modelling thing…

This jacket entered my life about a month ago and I might as well just glue it to myself because I have worn it practically every day since! I initially saw it doing the rounds on various blogs and instantly wanted to buy it until it turned out that it was no longer available anywhere in the UK! If you haven’t seen it already (and if you’re a fellow fashion-lover, I`d be very surprised if you haven’t!) it`s from one of my favourite high street brands, Zara.

I am partial to a bit of pink, in case you hadn’t noticed and I am even more partial to a leather jacket (faux or no faux), so this little number hit all the right buttons! After doing a bit of research (yes I am sad enough that I actually spend hours online hunting down clothing!) I managed to find it in Pisa, Italy. Now, it was available in various other European stores but it just so happened that I had a holiday booked to Pisa very soon and so, within 2 hours of jumping off the plane, I had picked this bad boy up!!

It might sound crazy to some of you to land in another country and head straight to shopping but when you know you love a jacket, you gotttstta get the jacket!

Not only is it super comfy and detailed, quite frankly it looks ridiculously hot!

If you have just decided that you too, need this jacket in your life then fear not! Just take a look at Zara`s many european stores and order directly from there, you will have to pay a little extra for international shipping but its worth it!

One shade of grey

As soon as I swept my eyes upon this grey warehouse maxi dress, I knew I had to have it but at just under 60, it was way out of my wardrobe budget! So, when warehouse started their winter sale (which consisted of mainly summer clothing), I practically raced down there to search high and low for this dress! I almost broke out in my best Beyonce dance routine when I saw it had been reduced to 15!

The material is deceiving as although it looks quite heavy and quilted, its actually incredibly light and breezy which makes it ideal for hot weather (hence why it was my go-to evening dress in Morocco with the heavy desert heat).  

Warehouse generally have some really pretty, quirky and glamorous maxi dresses during the summer but they seem to have a slightly smaller range this year. Not to worry though, plenty of high street stores such as New Look, Topshop and online retailers ASOS, all have some gorgeous maxis at the moment.

P.s- the location for this shoot was the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, if you haven’t been before then I would highly suggest you visit, its absolutely show-stopping!
