MONOCHROME.

The lovely people at Flossys were kind enough to send me a goody bag the other day with monochrome everything to die for. As you know, Flossys are some of my favourite shoes so it seemed only fitting to get another pair to add to my collection which is rapidly growing. These particular ones are houndstooth printed and only the second pair that I own which aren’t plain. They are also a softer, thicker material due to being part of their autumn/winter collection. Alongside these, I also received a monochrome batiste (which is always handy as you never know when you’ll need it) and black/white nail polishes from Barry M. Everything was so cleverly thought out and I was so gutted to have missed the event last month due to university. Unfortunately, I can’t make it to their bloggers street style this week as I’m stuck at university – but…

BASIC.

biker jacket // barneys via il2l (here)+basic tshirt // missguided (here)+city bag // h+m (here)dogtooth check trousers // missguided (here)+velvet plimsoles // missguided (here)+ How I managed to make this outfit almost entirely missguided, I’m not sure. These are all slightly new additions to my wardrobe minus the biker jacket so they’re being worn a lot at the minute. The biker jacket is about two years old now but its real leather and so easy to style which is a bonus in the weather right now – it just isn’t cold enough for a proper coat!  My tshirt and trousers are my ‘lets look stylish but be really comfortable’ outfit. The trousers are like leggings and obviously the top is oversized which means they’re easy to throw on. My velvet plimsoles are another easy, comfortable item. I originally thought that they might be hard to walk in but they are…

CLEATED CHECKS.

This year, scarves seem to be becoming a bigger part of my wardrobe than they have before. There is just something about draping one around my neck that seems to add much more to a simple outfit – like this one for example. I quite like the colours and style of this one, its much different to the classic tartans and checks that are already filling my drawers – it slightly reminds me of Burberry too! It isn’t a thick knit so it could be worn on warmer days but it definitely helps to wrap you up, just incase. My mom jeans have been hibernating a little due to feeling like light wash was too summer-y for my new love of black. However, when…

Floral Denim Layers.

floral print blazer // via house of fraser denim shirt // primark white crop // vintage city bag // h+m ripped knee mom jeans // asos lace up boots // new look Floral blazers are always reminiscent of the summer but with some clever styling, they can work through to the autumn too. This particular blazer has a crazy busy print but the muted bright tones help to bring the blazer as a statement worthy of being worn all year around. I chose to add the denim shirt underneath for warmth and layering and my ripped knee mom jeans are some of my most worn at the moment – so they had to be added too! You may have noticed that I’m back to my tripod photography, for the most part. I am still going to be keeping with the style from before but on a less regular basis. I…

Beaudame Lingerie.

elle macpherson ‘dune sunflower’ bra elle macpherson intimates set Beaudame is a website which specialises in lingerie and swimwear for ‘real women’. They stock a range of brands such as Elle Macpherson, Wonderbra, Freya, Fantasie, Elomi and Pananche – meaning there is a style to suit everyone. They stock all sizes from a 28A to a 48K, so no matter what size you are, you’ll find something suitable. For the moment, there is a focus on plus sized and bigger busted girls but I was told that they are expanding their smaller range too which is nice to see as us smaller girls tend to get left in the dark quite a lot. I chose to go for two different styles of bra because I dislike having too much of the same. If you’ve read my blog for a while then you’ll know my preference is normally non-padded and more…

Layers of Sweat Dresses.

hat // asos sweater dress // glamorous cycle shorts // asos small crossbody bag // quiz)+ doc marten dupes // primark (old) Sweater dresses are the perfect blend for keeping summer styles but adding the winters touch. This one is the perfect colour for the transitional stage and the addition of my new asos hat which is such a gorgeous style. I decided to wear my cycle shorts because I’m always wary of wearing dresses when the wind is so prone to blowing them up. I’m still trying to keep up the new style of outfit posts, are we preferring them? My boyfriend has been roped in a few times (with a struggle) so hopefully they will be different styles and such. This outfit is a little out of my comfort zone but I think its probably one of the most ‘me’ outfits that I have posted on my blog.…

Parka After Hours.

hair bow // asos parka // celeb look tartan crop // primark (old) jumpsuit // very.co.uk elephant 2 boots // new look Celeb look are by far one of my ‘go to’ online stores when it comes to the student budget. Not only are they cheap but the clothes are all good quality and on trend for the season – what more could you ask for!? This parka is the first in my collection of coats and its definitely the most cosy of them all. The fur on the collar leads down into the lining of the jacket too so its perfect for the colder months as well as wearing open during the mild weather that we have at the moment. Alongside my snug new coat, the tartan and velvet burgundy came back into my line of focus with force. I love being able to wear tartans and darker shades again!…

The Monki Coat of Dreams.

textured biker jacket // monki new york tee // divadames leather look wrap skirt // neon rose laced up heels // new look Yep, bringing this top back once more in the very last picture from my old uni house. I chose to try and autumn it up a little by adding my gorgeous textured biker jacket by Monki and a leather look skirt. Why does leather always seem to scream autumn/winter? Making up winter-y outfits is my favourite thing because its cool enough to wear layers and not overheat. Are we enjoying having a little more to see on Copper? I’m quite glad to have more content than just endless outfit posts but at the same time, I do miss my daily looks peeking up. The amount of outfits, ideas and styles of posts that go around in my head make daily blogging seem like it just isn’t enough…

Cleated Heels.

cleated platform heels // shusole Cleated sole heels/shoes/boots are a blogger must have, whether you like to admit to it or not. All of us own at least one pair of cleated somethings and love them more than any other shoes we own. This particular pair are ones which have always been my favourite style of platform heels. The cleated soles add so much to the strappy white design. Luckily for my thin, flat feet these actually fit really nicely – usually I struggle quite a lot with strapped shoes as they allow for bigger feet. I’m so in love with them though. I’ve yet to wear them properly for an occasion but I am sure that they will be perfect for winter blog events and nights out (maybe not just going into uni though). Shusole sell these for £19.99 which is a fraction of the price for similar elsewhere online.…

Floppy Hat and Check Coat.

hat // h+m checkered jacket // topshop tshirt // in the style leather look wrap skirt // neon rose fluffy bag // depop elephant 2 heels // new look So I completely didn’t realise that I’d run out of scheduled posts and neglected my blog for the past two days. Taking pictures with a ‘photographer’ has proved more difficult than a tripod in my garden due to the availability and what not – I credit anyone who blogs daily and has someone to take their pictures because its so hard to keep up with. The realisation that I’ve got a 5-7 week placement next year is daunting because I know that I will have to be scheduling over a month of posts with an insane work load. There is a post coming in the next couple of days talking about what I’ve been up to lately in regards to university…

Check Trousers.

lipstick // morange, mac necklace // primark (old) cropped sweatshirt // h+m faux leather rucksack // florence and fred high waist check trousers // missguided studded chloe dupe boots // truffle Check and dogtooth are always trends which leap out alongside tartan when the colder weather creeps closer. I’ve got such a love for dogtooth despite only owning these trousers but its a good place to start. They are a really nice fit and the material is perfect for giving a bit of stretch which is important when you’ve got to crouch or whatever – tight trousers on knees aren’t fun. The only problem that I’ve had with them is that they have bobbled after only one wear so there isn’t much hope of them holding out too long. I chose to style the trousers simply with silver, grey and black accessories so that the trousers remain the focus. Obviously…
