Lace up Leopard







Jeans - Pretty Little Thing*  Jumper - Pretty Little Thing*  Shoes - Dune

Even though I don't tend to wear many flats in my blog posts, you will usually find me in a pair of flats. Sometimes, I think flat shoes can look even more chic than heels, and whilst I would love to wear heels every day, I don't feel comfortable in them all the time due to my height. So flat shoes are a godsend to me. And brogues are EVERYWHERE at the moment. 

These leopard print pointed beauties I picked up on ASOS a couple of weeks ago are definitely my new staple shoe. Pointed flats are majorly big at the moment, and this, along with the leopard print pony fur, it's just a whole lot of my favourite things mixed together. I love them, and the slight heel makes them feel that little bit more dressy. Now, there is one bad point about these shoes, and I will regrettably admit, they are murder. Worse than any heels I have worn in my life, the pain after 20 minutes (if that) of wearing these for the first time resulted in me sitting in the street practically unable to move. But, this was my first wear, with no breaking in, so I guess I can forgive them and give them another whirl soon when my feet have been nursed back to health.

These gorgeous ripped 'girlfriend' style jeans are my new favourites; I've barely taken them off since I got them! The girlfriend style seems to be a little less baggy than the typical boyfriend style, so they feel that little bit more feminine. Paired with a plain knit and some statement shoes, and that's the outfit completed. And they are such a bargain for jeans, I would definitely recommend checking out Pretty Little Thing. I have my eye on this mustard beauty from them next, so Olivia Palermo-esque!

AW14 Wishlist


Skirt - Warehouse  Trousers - Topshop  Dress - H&M  Clutch - Topshop  Coat - Zara  Flats - LK Bennett  Jumper - Boohoo  Heels - Mango  Sunglasses - ASOS  Fur Scarf - ASOS

Autum is fast approaching, and I have to say it is my favourite time of the year. The change in weather, the change in fashion, it all starts to get that Christmas-y feeling. And this years AW14 trends have not disappointed. We are welcoming back Camel, which was a big hit for AW13, but along with more burnt orange and darker brown tones thrown in, which I love. I am also seeing a lot of berry tones around, which I feel goes perfectly with baby pinks and nudes. And we cannot deny the un-doubtable surge in faux fur accessories this season, which I must admit, I am a sucker for some fluff. 

So, whilst I am stuck in Wales, holding back the tears as I miss out on London Fashion Week this week, I have decided to do a bit of online style hunting instead. Here are my favourite AW14 picks at the moment, featuring some items that I have purchased myself and some items that I am lusting after. You may see some bits I already have dotted about on my blog and Instagram soon (that Charlotte Simone-esque fur scarf *cough*)! All items are linked if you guys have your eye on anything too! Happy shopping!

Jump around










Jumpsuit - Missguided*  Top - Zara  Heels - Daniel Footwear *  Sunglasses - Westward Leaning

I usually have an issue with jumpsuits. It's not an issue with them I have personally, it's a problem that I have no control over. And that is my height. Being tall has more fashion nightmares than people would think. Jumpsuits and playsuits are a no go unless I want an unfortunate and constant wedgie, and pants are often pedal pushers. However, when I saw this jumpsuit on Missguided, I knew I had to have it. That Kylie Jenner feel instantly drew me to it, and although I don't have as much sass as Kylie, I do love this jumpsuit. And as you can see, it is long leg friendly! The nude/camel colour is so on trend at the moment, and I know I will be getting my wear out of this. I will be teaming this with my new Zara camel coat, to really bring out my inner Kardashian.

I decided to let the jumpsuit do all the work in this post, so I kept the rest of the outfit simple. And by simple, I do not mean boring. As these Daniel Footwear heels are the queen of all heels. They are THE perfect black court shoes I have been searching for for so long, and the leather is so beautiful, I would recommend every girl going and snapping a pair up RIGHT NOW. They come in a few colours too, and I have my eye on the nude patent Mustio heel too. Who needs Louboutins...

Chasing Summer









Dress - Missguided*  Jacket - Forever21  Boots - Zara  Bag - Zara  Sunglasses - Burberry

Seasonal dressing is kind of hard right now. I'm over summer. Over the lace hemmed shorts, the bright crops, the palm prints. It's definitely feeling like Autumn, yet I am not ready to give up on getting my legs out just yet. With the on/off warm weather we are having at the moment, Fashion is feeling a little confused, I feel.

This is where this Missguided dress comes in. It's a dress, yes. But the thick material, the colours, the moody florals, it is the perfect transeasonal piece. And the smock style is so flattering, I could live in this! The colours are perfect for Autumn, mixing all those green hues that we've seen flying around, and a little dashing of nude/baby pink keeps it a bit warmer. I decided to throw on a fur gilet for a sort of boho feel, and keeping to that transeasonal dressing feel. Boho sometimes feels very much like a summer strong style, but it can work so well for winter too. Layering fur with over-sized knits, flares and floppy hats and you will be down with that Rachel Zoe look in no time.

I paired this dress with my Zara pink suede boots, as I thought it brought out the slight pink in the dress a little more. Throw on some oversized round sunnies, and that boho look is complete. I can think of so many different ways to style this dress, so I think it's a definite wardrobe staple this Autumn/Winter.

Coral Accents







Shirt - Fashion Union*  Pants - Banana Republic   Bag - Paul's Boutique*  Heels - Public Desire (similar)*  

What better way to get you through the bleak Autumn/Winter transition than a pop of colour. And this coral bag from Paul's Boutique is enough to brighten anyone's day! Sometimes I feel like you can get a little caught up in blacks and neutrals during Autumn, so this bag is just carrying a little summer on through. I also love the gold detailing of the bag, I feel like it adds a little classy-ness! I must admit, when I used to think of Pauls Boutique, I would picture the blingd out jumpers and the garish prints and colours. However, in recent years I have been pleasantly surprised by their transition to chic yet still unique bags. Check them out yourselves here and see what you think!

I have been looking for the perfect denim shirt for a while now, and this Fashion Union shirt is just that. A denim shirt can go with so many things and I feel like it's such a wardrobe staple! Whether it's worn with heels or a pair of trainers, I think every girl needs one. I chose my trusty Banana Republic Sloan skinny pants to wear with the denim shirt. If I could live in one pair of pants for the rest of my life, it would un-doubtably be these. They are comfy, perfect fitting, glam; just the queen of pants. 

I decided to pick out the gold in the bag with these Public Desire beauties I have. These shoes are surprisingly really comfortable, and the heel height is nice in that it's not too high. I decided to finish off this outfit with a little Nars lip pencil to match my bag, which I thought tied the outfit together a little more. You can find the lip colour here.

#glitztokicks: part 2





Dress - Bank*  Jacket - Glamorous*  Heels - Bank*  Bag - Zara

So, I promised to take you from day to night in just one dress, and here it is. If you see my below post, you can see how I dressed down this monochrome dress for a casual, daytime look. Now, all I have done here is a quick accessory switch up.

By adding a pair of heels, your outfit is instantly changed in a flash. Your legs are leaner, your dress is sassier, and your whole look is transformed. As I said below, sometimes I don't feel like showing off my arms, especially if I have my legs on show. So to add a bit more depth and a little more comfort, I have thrown on a white duster. An SS14 staple, a duster coat is just that little bit edgier than a blazer and the length is a little bit more fun. And I know that duster coats are going to be kept firmly in my wardrobe for AW14 too, with white and khaki being my favourite colours to snap them up in! 

So there you have it, two simple looks based on one simple yet effective dress. What do you guys think?
