LAYER UP


As much as I love wrapping up for winter in my thick coats and wooly hats, a small part of me misses the items sat in my summer wardrobe, waiting for another 6 months to come back out.
I put together this outfit after being desperate to wear this playsuit I bought a few months back from Boohoo that I haven't had a chance to wear yet. Yes, I will admit my legs did get a little chilly, but I refuse to not wear culottes until next spring. I would probably add even more layers if I was wearing this outfit for a long period of time outside, this is what's great about this oversized bomber jacket - you can fit so many layers underneath to keep warm!

My second year at university has been a lot more time consuming that I originally thought hence the reason it has been a few months since my last post, I have been working hard with a mountain of coursework as well as having the time of my life living with all my best friends. My next plan is to get posting regularly again...fingers crossed!

Happy December!

Transitioning Your Wardrobe For Autumn


After a slightly unexpected, prolonged summer it is clear that autumn is finally starting to show itself, the weather has suddenly got a lot colder and wetter over the last few weeks so we are all starting to think about getting out our winter wardrobe - but it's not quite time to get your wooly coat out just yet. One of my favourite things about winter is being able to wear your favourite jumpers without having to cover them up with a coat, so it's certainly about making the most of this in between weather. I have too many sweatshirts and jumpers to count but this is the time I will be getting them out to wear just with a pair of jeans or if the sun decides to ever show it's face again maybe even with skirt or cropped culottes, you never know! This Topshop sweatshirt was a sale bargain I got a few months back but is still available online in petite (pair with some high waisted trousers and your good to go!) and is a favourite of my sweatshirt collection. I paired it with some loose wide leg trousers and my trusty Public Desire camel creepers.

How To Dress Like Rachel From Friends

Even though Friends finished 12 years ago (something that I have sadly had to come to terms with) we will all admit we watch those episodes over and over again and somehow they never seem to get boring. One thing of many things I have always loved about Friends is the fashion inspiration it gives. 90's fashion is probably one of my ultimate inspirations when it comes to my own personal style, so everything they are wearing in the early series falls under this category pretty aptly. Rachel in particular is someone I have always loved in terms of her personal style, for me my favourites were in the early 90's series... I know, shocking right?!
She is someone I have always thought of when it comes to a 'celebrity' or 'iconic' inspiration in fashion and I'm sure I am not alone in this after pictures of her famous Friends outfits are still constantly shown even 12 years on. Here I've put together a few little inspiration shopping boards on some of my favourite Rachel outfits...

Bardot Tops and Khaki Culottes


Two of this season's top trends that I never thought I would turn to have now created one of my favourite outfits...
When the culottes trend came into fashion I just couldn't get my head around them suiting me, I did love them on other people but I just felt I didn't have the guts to go out in them as I wasn't sure I could pull them off. It took me a long time to get into these but once I did, its safe to say that I have never looked back. I am so obsessed with culottes or just mid length wide leg trousers of any sort, they are so flattering and I am beginning to love anything loose fitting and over sized more and more recently. This particular pair were a complete steal at just £9.99! Yes, I'm not lying, I was so shocked at this when I read the label. They are elasticated at the waist so super comfortable as well as my favourite colour of the moment, khaki. New Look, you are winning. Another trend I wouldn't of seen myself wearing would be the bardot top, but again the more I saw them styled up and worn, the more I loved this silhouette and shape. Yet again another bargain (am I getting predictable yet!?) from Primark this time, I will certainly still be wearing this stripe shirt into the autumn months...
