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.

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…

Velvet Kimono.

Kimono’s are normally considered to be summer appropriate only but recently I’ve realised that they can work for other seasons too. This particular kimono was sent to me by Quiz to style in a way which would be worthy of London Fashion Week – obviously I chose monochrome as apparently I wear not much else. I really like the way that its got a velvet pattern but its lightweight and autumn/winter appropriate. To style the kimono, I chose metallic brogues because it brings out the shades in the kimono and a black jumpsuit which I wore for my Very magazine feature. You may or may not have seen me moaning on my twitter about my lack of voice. Since Thursday last week, I’ve been quickly loosing my voice to the point where its now a husky whisper and I can’t physically speak and its painful to even try (working at…

Bright Tribal.

This is the very last outfit that I shot in my old house. I’m glad in a way because it means all of my pictures from now are much better quality – but its also going to be a lot harder to get them up daily. Because of this, I am going to try and include other types of posts so maybe a few brand focuses and maybe like jewellery, accessories and such – just things which don’t need me to find a photographer. I feel like this is the last time I can really get away with a summer-y outfit too because the weather is now all over the place and it isn’t very easy to shoot.

SECTIONED.

The burgundy is out, autumn is officially here. I have to admit, burgundy is one of my favourite colours to wear any time of year but the past few months it hasn’t really been acceptable. These jeans are new to ASOS and completely my style. The ripped knees are becoming my signature and the looser fit and slight faded wash make them unique to my wardrobe – although I had to send them back because the waist was a little too big for me. I’m finally back to university now after the longest summer of my life. I’m so glad to be back but the work load is definitely a lot more than last year – which I expected but it all came at once. I can’t wait to get stuck into this year and prove myself to myself.

Street Style with Flossys | Part Two.

So this is the second set of pictures which came from the Flossys street style shoot that I did the other week. I’m not sure which I prefer but we definitely got more shots from the second look. I chose to go for a simple styling option with these flossys because they didn’t really need too much to make them look good – like the previous. The pictures were also shot at southbank and the quality is definitely much better than any I could take around here. To be honest, these images are the reason that my own outfit posts are now shot differently. Yet again, thank you so much to Flossys for including my little blog and allowing me to take part in something which is totally not what I ever thought my blog would have me doing!

Navy Silky Cami.

Annoyingly, I did actually already link and write up this post but it decided to delete itself so here I am typing away again.. Despite this, I’ll let you just appreciate how gorgeous this cami is! The cross back is so pretty and delicate but it works much better with a strapless bra so you don’t have straps all over the place looking ugly! I absolutely love the navy colour as it keeps with my monochrome autumn wardrobe but gives me a slight change because my obsession with black was getting a little too much – navy is a nice change. The satin is also lovely and so easy to wash/iron which I was a little worried about. I took outfit inspiration from Lookbook for this one. I noticed a post where someone had an all white outfit with a denim shirt so I thought I’d do my own take…

Vintage Shirts.

Another from the archive, just using them all up before I turn to being completely ‘new style’. I’m not too sure how its going to go down though because I don’t get the option to take those kind of pictures as regularly or as many at once – but we will see. I might have to start incorporating other content in rather than just hundreds of outfit posts, but I’ll just pass that bridge when it comes to it. This vintage shirt is one of the only ones that I own and the fact its absolutely massive makes it even better. Its quite hard to style but definitely a staple as it can be worn closed as a dress/top or open as a jacket type of thing. I am literally loving this year of university so far, its much more intense but the whole design process this time round is…
