Cashmere Camaro

Sweater by the Textile Rebels on ASOS // Dress underneath from Missguided // Boots are See By Chloe from Farfetch // Chanel J12 Watch 

I've been dying to wear this sweater since I ordered a few things from ASOS a few weeks ago and as Nia, (@NiaSays1) Fran (@Theonlymisslove) & I decided to go out for drinks to one of our all time favourite places called Momo's, I finally had somewhere to wear it and a chance to dress it up a little whilst keeping it caj/smart and appropriate for cocktails with friends.

I absolutely love the sweater firstly because it has a Camaro SS on it!! But it's also really warm as it's a cashmere and wool blend and the silk panel on the front looks really nice against the grey. The sky on the silk panel also has a city skyline in it which is subtle but cooooooool!

I paired it with this super duper afforadble dress that is a staple piece in my wardrobe and has been since I got it from and not only does it look fab on it's own because it's really simple, but it's also great to layer under things because the skirt section of the dress is so nice.

I wore my fave 'caj/smart' booties from See by Chloe that I got off on sale and I paired it with, YES you guessed it... My All Saints leather jacket! Haha.

Got an exciting week ahead, lots of fun stuff to vlog and on thursday I'm off to Amsterdam for a few days with Fran and my little bro, SO CHUFFED! What are you guys upto this week? xo

The Knit Pencil skirt

Sweater & shoes from Topshop // Skirt from Zara // Leather jacket from All Saints // Hermes Kelly bag 

Firstly, apologies for the slightly washed out photos, my camera was on a funny setting and I failed to notice... DOH! Anyhoooooo...

Maxi skirts & dresses only recently became something I deemed winter appropriate as I just never really thought about how versatile they could be and how they could be styled with items that would add warmth, so why not wear them in the winter?

Well anyway, I don't really have any real 'winter' skirts as most of mine are either really girly, summery or have a big slit down the side which doesn't make it ideal to conquer the cold (even with tights it's a pain as the skirt can stick to the tights) so when I was in Westfield a few days ago I came across this particular soft grey maxi skirt whilst cheekily wondering around Zara and it was a mere £19.99 from their Trafaluc line which to me is more than reasonable and it falls just in between being fitted and loose so it works with tights underneath too. CHA-CHING. I had to have it, so I bought it and I am so glad I did because it is incredibly comfortable and surprisingly warm, all round fab purchase ey!!

I paired it with a relatively newly purchased faveee cropped jumper of mine from Topshop that I didn't notice is from their 'Petite' section (OOPS) but hey it still fits and it's this lovely pastel pink. I wore my All Saints leather jacket (again) with these comfy 90's chunky heeled trainers/boots, also from Topshop! What are you guys loving wearing this winter? ✌ xo

Off the Shoulder

Top from ASOS // Camo trousers from Zara // Hermes belt // Isabel Marant sneaker wedges 

I have been wanting to get my hands on one of these 90's inspired off the shoulder tops for a while now so when I noticed that they were being sold on ASOS & there were some other goodies I wanted to get, I decided to pop it in ye olde basket and get it - and I'm glad I did!

I wore it recently with my fave (and only) pair of camouflage cargo pants that I purchased a while ago from Zara which are unfortunately a teensy bit too big and are in need of a belt so I went with my trusty Hermes belt which happens to be one of like 2 belt I own that aren't waist belts! I also wore my most prized sneaker wedges, my white perforated Marant's with my quilted All Saints leather jacket which isn't pictured above but can be seen in some other recent 'What I wore' posts from yours truly :) It wasn't as cold in the photos as it is at the moment... brrrrr! Hope you're all well ✌ xo

The Chequered Coat

Coat: Autograph by Marks & Spencer

Winter is upon us here in London which means it's time to whip out our coats from storage or invest in a new winter coat to keep us cozy through these chilly few months (or most of the year if you live in England).

I had to pop into M&S to buy some thermals for Fabio & my brother and I came across this gorgeous white and black chequered coat and I couldn't resist! It's like no other coat I own in that firstly it's white and that is a mahoosive benefit for me as I own three small dogs, two of which happen to be white and shed like it's in fashion so having a coat that won't get covered in dog hair (or at least not obviously as it's white) so I'm very pleased! It's also extremely versatile which I'm not sure if you noticed but I like versatile items of clothing it seems! :P

It also has a zip fastening which I much prefer to button fasterning and it has leather trim along the collar as well as being made out of Italian fabric... how fancy eh! Anyhoo, I hope you're all well :) ✌ xo
