OOTD: last of the pastels

Shirt - Matalan (similar here)
Jeans - Topshop (similar here)
Belt - Miss Selfridge

I have a feeling the majority of my outfit posts are going to have something or other from a charity shop in at the moment! Its my favourite thing to look around and find such bargains you know no one else has. I love this peach polka dot shirt I got from a vintage charity shop in Leicester during the summer, and although it's quite summery I definitely feel like it could be layered up from Autumn/Winter. As it's still been quite warm this week, I thought I would make the most of it and try and squeeze in pastels one more time!

OOTD: the cape coat

Cape Coat - Charity Shop 
Fishnet Jumper - Primark 

My favourite thing has to be popping into a charity shop and coming out with a complete bargain. I got this cape coat for just £7 last week and although I never saw this style as something I would usually go for,  I thought I would give it a quick try on and ended up falling in love with it!
It's such an easy throw on coat and is perfect for these early autumn months, it can also be layered up as it starts to get chillier. This is also probably the first monochrome based outfit I've posted on my blog!? But I just loved the simplicity of it and definitely feeling I am going to experiment with these sort of looks for Autumn/Winter.

LFW: my favourite collections

So it was this time last week that the start of London Fashion Week was taking place, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one constantly checking my Instagram feed and looking up the latest collections online. I'm also pretty sure I wasn't the only one wishing I was there, I was very jealous of all the bloggers that went this year - and judging from everyones photos, it looked great!

Browsing the Vogue London Fashion Week page at all the collections that were presented over the week, I decided to put together my top 3 favourite collections...

Peter Pilotto

This definitely has to be my favourite collection out of the 3, I always sway towards anything with big prints and textures and these pieces instantly caught my eye. I love the clashing patterns with the structured shapes. The subtle colours mixed with black is quite unique and I love the shoes that were paired with these outfits!

Issa

There were a few hints of bright colours within this collection but the majority was a monochrome look including the ones I picked. I love the marble print midi dress as well as the daisy textured midi skirt, this collection includes a girly aspect with the floral, textured prints but with the tailored shapes it has a very sophisticated vibe. A definite favourite!

Apu Jan 

apujan
Yes more prints, I know! I just can't resist when looking at the collections. These again, are marble inspired prints from Apu Jan, but with a very specific colour palette of dark and light blues. I really love this style print especially when mixed with structured shapes such as the far left and far right pictures.

All very different collections but slightly similar in the aspects that I love about them.
The dream is to one day be watching the shows myself, but in the mean time I'll have to admire them from behind my laptop!

What were your favourite SS15 collections from LFW?

OOTD: floral midi

Jumper - Topshop
Skirt - Primark 
Necklace - Miss Selfridge 
Sunglasses - Accessorize (similar here)
Bag - Urban Outfitters (similar here

I got this floral midi skirt in the summer for a bargain of £5! I love the colours and print and I think you can either make it very summery, or add some darker colours in there like I have for Autumn/Winter. The sun is still out from time to time, so the tights haven't got to come out just yet!
A new purchase I've got recently are these chunky black New Look boots, they're so comfortable and the heel is a perfect height so I don't feel too tall in them. These will definitely be a great staple boot for winter and I'm sure they'll get a lot of use!

OOTD: ripped up

Jeans c/o Celeb Look
Grey Top - H&M
Floral Boots - Asos

The mega ripped jeans look has been popular this summer, and I've been desperate to try a pair myself. I love these ones that were kindly sent to me from Celeb Look, they're perfect for adding a bit of edge to an outfit and can be styled up very simply so not a difficult outfit to put together. I think they're great for this time of year when it's not warm enough to wear shorts but you still want to show off your summer tan!

OOTD: autumn boho

Maxi Skirt - Topshop (similar here)
Rings - Primark & Miss Selfridge 

First of all, how amazing is the print on this t-shirt!? I love anything with a bold print and am a big fan of this t-shirt I got from the lovely guys at Red Label, it definitely represents more autumn inspired colours which is perfect for this time of year. I paired it with my forever worn loose maxi skirt from Topshop and my lilac fedora, a slightly autumn inspired boho look. 
I look ridiculously pale in these photos considering I came back from holiday less than a week ago, the lighting was very bright which I didn't realise until after taking the photos so I apologise for looking like a bit of a ghost!

OOTD: mint biker

Top - Vintage
Shorts - Levi's (similar here)

Mint has definitely been a key colour this summer, and I love that this jacket brings a little bit of summer to Autumn/Winter! Perfect for these months where the sun is still out but it's getting a little chilly. The sizing comes up perfectly, usually I find biker jackets are a little on the tight side especially when you want to layer them up in winter - but I got this in a size 8 and it fit's so well! 
I paired it up with this dogtooth print polo neck which was my mums, I love the print and the shape of this and will definitely be wearing it lots over the next few months. 
It was actually suprusingly warm yesterday so I managed to get away with wearing shorts - better make the most of it while I can (plus I didn't want to cover up the slight holiday tan!).

What do you think of this summer inspired winter jacket?

So I got back last night from a lovely week away in Tunisia with my boyfriend Jack, so I've put together a little post featuring a few of my favourite outfits from the week as well as a few holiday snaps!
It tended to get dark by 7 o'clock in Tunisia so taking outfit evening photos was a bit of nightmare, so the quality of these photos isn't too great but there we go. All these bit's featured I mainly got in the summer sales so check the post below of my haul to see if any of the items are still available if your interested. 
I had a lovely, relaxing holiday in the sun and I have to say I am not too excited to be back in England! 

Also a quick side note just to say I'm sorry about the lack of posts this month, I had my birthday, a week away with the family and then this holiday so things just got very busy and I decided to have a few weeks off blogging! But I am going to be getting back to normal now and I'm very excited for everything to change into Autumn/Winter!
