Floral Bomber - Primark (similar here)
Bag - Urban Outfitters 
Nike Air Force 

I think it's now clear that I am a fan of sports inspired outfits... It's definitely a strong inspiration within my personal style, and here's another one up in todays post. 
I've had this Primark floral bomber jacket for ages now and I have to confess I haven't worn it much yet, but it is a difficult one to wear in winter as it's a very thin material it will be much better for the spring months once it starts to get warmer. I paired it with my new military shirt, some wet look leggings and of course my nikes to finish off the sporty look. This was definitely one of those outfits that you throw together in hope that it will work but in the end I like how it turned out!

LFW15: TOPSHOP UNIQUE

TOPSHOPUNIQUE15

I'm sure I'm not the only one that sat glued to my laptop watching the Topshop Unique show on the Topshop website this afternoon and I think it's clear it definitely lived up to it's expectations, with fashion icons such as Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner in the front row, this was a show not to be missed.
It's a collection that included such a wide variety of popular trends for AW15, from fluff and embellishment to leather and floral prints - there seemed to be something for everyone. Here I have put together a selection of my favourite looks from the collection, you can see from mixing all these together in one image the variation of looks and textures that Topshop has shown. It seemed the inspiration behind the collection was almost an english country girl vibe with the floral prints and faux fur coats mixed a few 70s twists through the flares and knee high boots.
One of my favourite looks had to be the amazing brown velvet dungarees, as well as the gorgeous faux fur coats!

 What were your favourite looks from the collection?

BLACK DUNGAREES

White Jumper - Primark
Choker - ASOS (similar here)
Boots - River Island (similar here)

Dungarees are fast becoming a very popular trend for SS15 and I just couldn't resist a pair for myself. I was unsure at first as I was worried I wouldn't get too much wear out of them but fell in love after trying on this pair in H&M, I think black is a great colour for dungarees as it goes with absolutely everything whereas denim is sometimes harder to pair up. These will be great throughout winter, spring and summer and I will embrace feeling like a child in dungarees again!
I layered up this outfit with a fishnet style jumper and my Nike sports bra underneath as I liked the fact you could subtly see the logo through the jumper. Again, a very monochome look.. I don't know what's happened to me but I am just loving all white and black recently!

What do you think of the dungaree trend?

BROWN SMOKEY EYES

Seperate Items in Kit:
Stay Don't Stray Primer - Benefit Cosmetics

A brown smokey eye is a favourite make up look of mine, and after getting this Benefit palette, has become pretty much my every day make up look! I got this palette for christmas as you probably tell from the packaging as Benefit bring out so many amazing gift sets over christmas, but as it is still available on the Benefit website and definitely something I would recommend as a staple item in your make up set, I thought I would pop up a post! It includes the four different long wear powder shades, a small eyeshadow primer and a small version of the They're Real! mascara (which is honestly the best mascara I've had) - all of the items together are worth £37 so it's great value for money for £19.50. 

What are your favourite products to create a brown smokey eye?

PINSTRIPES & DOGTOOTH

Dogtooth Scarf - Charity Shop (similar here)
Watch - Olivia Burton
Hayden Boyfriend Jeans - Topshop

A short outfit post today, I just had to show off this shirt I bought last week. Boyfriend style shirts have been a big trend of this season and I've always loved the oversized, baggy masculine looks from bloggers that have continuously popped up on my Instagram and blog feed. I walked past New Look the other day and saw this pale blue pinstripe shirt on a mannequin and knew I had to buy it, I've been wanting one for ages and just think they're such a great staple piece for your wardrobe to layer up with a variety of outfits. 
I found this dogtooth scarf in a charity shop for an absolute bargain price of £1.50! That is why I love charity shopping. It's very lightweight and not large one that you can wrap around your neck about 10 times but that's why I love it, it'll be a great scarf into the spring months as well!

Slogan T-Shirt - ASOS (similar here)
Fur Bag c/o F&F Clothing (similar here)

A mixture of new purchases in this outfit, and a few lovely sale bargains! I actually got this t-shirt for christmas and I love it, I am obsessed with slogan tops at the moment and translated this one says 'the sweetness of life' which I love. As I was wearing these high waisted trousers I couldn't have the top hanging out as its quite long but I just about managed to show the majority. 
These trousers are currently £14 in the sale on ASOS and the comfiest trousers ever. I don't usually find these sort of trousers comfortable but these ones are the perfect material, and definitely going to be worn throughout winter as well as being perfect for spring! I am loving khaki at the moment, so a military shirt needed to be bought - so easy to layer up with any outfit. 
Last but not least I got these gorgeous boots in the ASOS sale for £16, I wasn't sure at first as I was worried they wouldn't go with much but after wearing them a few times I am in love. They are perfect for making a plainer outfit slightly more interesting. Plus who doesn't love a bit of leopard print!?

Polo Neck Top c/o F&F clothing (same here)  
 Daisy Street Skirt - ASOS £9.50 in the sale! 
Necklace - Accessorize (similar here
Boots c/o Missguided (old) 
 Fedora Hat - Peacocks (similar here)

Something new for me, an all black outfit! I never tend to go completely black, although I've added a touch of maroon with the fedora but we'll ignore that, I actually really liked this look, it made a change and I definitely want to buy a lot more black pieces after this - so versatile and easy to wear. I bought this skirt recently from ASOS and it's a new favourite, I love the leopard print details and the velvet texture, I think it would be great to clash with other patterns as well as it's very subtle. It's now £9.50 in the sale, such a bargain! More ASOS sale bargains will be featured in my outfits this week so keep an eye out!

Camel Coat - Miss Selfridge (similar here or blue/pink version here)
Bobble Hat - H&M (similar here)
Slogan Jumper - Topman (similar here)

Even though it was so unbelievably cold today, the sun was shining so it seemed like a nice day to take the dogs for a long walk - they ended up very muddy and we ended up very cold!
I have been living in this coat recently, it's nice and warm plus camel goes with just about any colour. A definite favourite! Another item I think I have worn even more than the coat is my bobble hat, I got this for christmas and am pretty sure I've worn it most days since!? It's so cosy and comfortable to wear plus it's perfect for covering up a bad hair day which is a bonus!

I am now snuggled up with the dogs in front of the fire trying to warm up after freezing my socks off!
Hope everyone had a great weekend,
