Michelin Man


BOOTS: TOPSHOP

Sorry for the poor outfit pictures, literally had gail force winds blowing my hair all over my face in each shot! i never usually wear joggers outside the house, but i thought i'd pair these with my new ASOS michelin man-type sweater as I have been wearing way too much all black lately. To be fair it was a decent change, so comfy compared to many other bottoms and there is definitely nothing worse then being sat in sweaty lecture theatres all day in uncomfortable pants (sorry for the mental image).

Love,

oversized





BOOTS: TOPSHOP

I am not supposed to be wearing this coat right now. With my 20th approaching fast (under 2 weeks away) my parents offered to buy me this coat as a gift, as I have been lusting after it for weeks on ASOS. However, when the 20% student offer came through on ASOS, i saw that size 8 was so close to being out of stock, so I panic bought it but now there are limited sizes left in this coat!

I spent so long searching for some decent white trousers as I wear way too much black and found some great ones from French Connection. I know what you're thinking, French Connection is pretty expensive, however I found they have an official eBay store, selling last seasons clothes and at such decent prices.

Grey


EVERYTHING: TOPSHOP (similar trousers)

I definitely didn't realise this was an all topshop outfit, until I actually sat down to write this post, oops. I've been after a casual black jumpsuit for a while now but still have not found the perfect one, so I thought I'd improvise and try to create a black jumpsuit type(ish) look with a top and trousers.

I've recently been a bit unhappy with the location of where I take my outfit posts, I thought seeing as I only wear black/white/grey, the background should also incorporate the same colours, so I've been on the hunt for a perfect location and this new location is stunning. Will show more and more of it with each post.

Hit List


1, 2, 5: ZARA

I've decided to compile a few items on here that have caught my eye the past few weeks during the shameful amount of hours I spend browsing the internet. I'm thinking of doing this kind of post monthly, and sorry but in advance, I can predict nearly every item in these posts (as well as my outfit posts) will be black and/or white. My favourite of these has definitely got to be the sleeveless blazer which is NAVY (I was feeling colourful), but I feel like it can literally make any outfit look a million times more interesting.

My ultimate favourite high end brand is Acne, I am in love with nearly everything they have in. However, I'd probably have to save up my entire life to afford anything from there, so thankfully there are plenty of high street alternatives. But I thought i'd put this jacket in, just incase any of you want to splurge on this amazing jacket!

Floppy Hat


DRESS: ASOS
BOOTS: TOPSHOP
NECKLACE: RIVER ISLAND (similar)

What goes better with black then, well...black? I've wanted a floppy hat for so long, but never had the guts to really buy it and wear it out. However, I've definitely grown in confidence so much in the past few months with my style, so I just did it and I love it! Also, sorry about the different lighting in these pictures, the weather was so unpredictable! I bought this tunic/dress back in Easter but have never really worn it, I wore this outfit with tights today but thought that for these pictures, its easier to see the shape/style of the dress without tights on.

I also bit the bullet and bought a tripod (eek) to POSSIBLY film my first 'proper' YouTube video, however its going to take some courage to really sit down and record something. I feel like this blog is mainly for outfits and fashion, but sometimes when reading fashion blogs, I wish I could also get to know the person behind the lens through videos and things of the sort, as I don't really share a lot apart from clothes on here. Let me know if its a good idea, or if you genuinely are not interested!

Suited and Booted

BOOTS: TOPSHOP
SUNGLASSES: EBAY

I was originally going to take these pictures with my leather joggers from a few posts ago..until i washed them and the leather effect has totally washed out! Gutted and I don't know what to do with them now. I always love it when girls wear over sized blazers as a top/jacket, however its so hard to pull off! The look is so formal, so i tried to 'casual' it up with my cut out boots, which hopefully looked ok. Tried to link the sunglasses but eBay crashed after I linked the blazer. Just type 'half tint sunglasses' if you're interested!

Caution: Leather leggings are not warm.

Beige is a colour

TOP: TOPSHOP (similar)
TROUSERS: TOPSHOP
COAT: TOPSHOP
SUNGLASSES: ASOS
HAT: NEXT
BOOTS: NINE WEST (similar)

Sorry for the lack of pictures today, you won't believe how hard it was to even achieve these shots as my hair was literally all over my face for half the time! It was one of those strangely sunny but freezing days..winter has finally arrived.

If you read my blog you probably will realise I don't really wear a lot of colour..however I found this beige boyfriend coat in my massive collection the other day and I had completely forgotten about it! I've literally had it for 2 years so I'd thought I'd wear a little colour today (if beige really counts). Not sure if the picture shows it but the coat has a little leather collar. Quite surprised I still like it after all this time, I am one of those people who buys clothes and then completely changes style in 2 months, then you end up not liking any of your clothes! I am also sorry that I can't link any of my clothes to the originals on websites as everything I'm wearing is too old to be on the online stores now!

I have a HUGE amount of work due soon and an exam approaching so not too sure when the next time I'll be able to blog, but I am going to make the effort to blog as frequently as I can. I hate checking my blog and looking at the date I last posted as its always a million years ago.
