A mini update and Outfit of the day

Hi all,

Firstly I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and I hope you all had an amazing day. I absolutely love the festive season, spending time with loved ones and eating far too much food.

Tomorrow is New Years eve so in advance I will  wish you all a very happy new year 2013. I feel as though this year has flown by, do you feel that way also? I am sorry I  have been quite absent for the past month or so as I have been so busy. I am aiming to return back to blogging more frequently in 2013.

It's cold outside

As mentioned in a previous post ( here ) of mine I have a real love for gilets. In this outfit I am featuring one of my favourite gilets, the long tastle fabric makes this a real statement piece and I love layering in the winter.



Those long cold winter days...

When it gets to Winter (which is it) I prefer to hibernate, (stay in as much as possible) if I have to face the cold then I make sure I am as warm as possible. Thankfully this coat is really warm and although I am jelouse of the women I see walking around with tiny blazers or bare legs I do feel good wearing a nice printed or statement winter coat with a big fluffy hat. What are you like in the winter, are you one of the few that does not feel the cold or are you  like me who is all about wearing 50 layers ?!?

I hope your all having a great week and will have an even greater weekend :)

Leather and Patent, A cold winters day

This skater style skirt is around throughout the year with the only obvious variotion being the fabric or print. These skirts are really girly and look great in flats ie sneakers or ballet pumps as well as heels.

In this look i teamed the skirt with a stripped round neck sweater and thick woolen socks as it was quite cold. I have seen so many high street retailers selling this type skirt so I thought I would share a few images of were you can get this type of skirt from.

I hope your all having a great week :)

Jacquard Floral Suit, Winter Fall look

My recent post was dedicated to a trend for this Autumn Winter, that of which was the Jacquard Floral print.  Check out the post here.  

As I am  a big fan of this fabric the instant I saw this outfit I knew I had to purchase it. The trousers are great because you can wear them as both a casual look or for a more formal evening.

Are you a fan of  this particular trend?

Here are some gorgeous jacquard pieces



Sequins, Sequins , Sequins!!

For as long as I can remember I have had a love for sequins. I am literally like a magpie when it comes to anything that glitters or sparkles so you can imagine what I was like when I saw this skirt. 
When it comes to sequins I have to shamefully confess that I impulse buy, it's almost like I am programmed to just purchase or accumulate as many sequin items as I can (shameful).
Now I know sequins are not for everyone and as much as I love them,  sometimes people can get it so wrong.  

I think most people, including myself until recently, feel that sequins are very formal, which they can be, however I have found that lately I have been wearing certain pieces casually in the day. This particular look is quite casual as I have teamed it with a slouchy slogan t-shirt. 

You can style statement sequin skirts with boyfriend slouchy tees and flats for a day look.
Sequin blouses can look really great with jeans or leather pants and flats for a statement daytime look.


Don't be afraid to make your outfit clash a little and add a statement necklace to your look. This skirt and t-shirt combo works really well with a statement necklace. I have featured 2 different images with statement necklaces as an example.

I hope you all had a great weekend.
