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?

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. 

TIP:
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.

STATEMENT NECKLACES:

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.

A Winter Beauty Wish List.. Dear Santa..

There is something really satisfying about pampering yourself when you feel stressed, tired or your skin just needs some TLC. I try and find at least one day in the week to spoil my skin with luxurious products. As the weather is cold I find that my skin feels a lot dryer and dehydrated so I tend to use products that will offer my skin more moisture and tend to turn to thicker night creams and face masks.

There are a few things I want to add to my Winter beauty regime which I will list below. I will also share with you the items that I have been using lately which are great if your skin is feeling really dehydrated and dry.

Current Skin Care I am really enjoying:


My wish list:

(Let me know if you have any of the products I mention and what you think of them, I would love to know your opinion)

Trend Alert | Jacquard Floral Love

Jacquard weave is a big trend for this Autumn, Winter and is something I am seeing a lot of in high street stores. Although I do try and keep up to date with trends, I do not follow them all. This particular trend is one that reemerges every Autumn , Winter and I love. This type of weaved fabric is gorgeous and depending on the colours can also look really festive. I have a few jacquard pieces that I have bought over the years, however this season there are so many that have really caught my eye.

I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite pieces that you can find on the high street.

Tips for styling:

These printed weaved pieces make a great statement to an outfit and often look nice paired with another simple article of clothing for EG jacquard trousers look great with a plain blouse, shirt or tee and can be dressed down or dressed up for a night out. Depending on how daring you are you could even clash prints, if you own jacquard pants, you could always team them with a floral shirt for a statement look.

Studds and Woolen Beanies, another subtle introduction to Winter

I can honestly say it is officially Winter, cold windy and absolutely freezing ( I am not a winter person). This drop in temperature has welcomed the need to buy more appropriate clothing which has resulted in me having a new obsession for hats. I love beanies, I always have but lately I have managed to accumulate quite a few. Hats are definitely a Winter must have for me, check out  my recent blog post featuring my top 10 items for the Fall here

I also blogged a month or so ago about wanting Leather pants which I finally found. These leather pants/trousers are oxe blood red and have a zip detail on the ankle. What are your thoughts on leather pants?
