For me they are the perfect dress up or down pair of flats there are around. Wear them peeping out from under a pair of wide leg trousers with a jumper in the day and with a simple LBD for a sleek evening look. Just gorgeous.
Every year as soon as there’s a chill in the air, the battle starts to find the perfect coat and winter accessories combination. To ease the process I’ve put together a few looks, hats off to Zara for providing my favourite coats of the season…
I received this lipstick for my birthday in the colour Mutine and it has been making me a very happy lady since. The lipstick in general is really moisturising and lasts reasonably well. But what I love the most is the fact that Mutine is a natural colour with a pearlescent shine that means that it is just a touch more glamorous than your usual neutral shade. It’s perfect for a sophisticated day look.
A lovely lipstick that is a bit of everyday extravagance.
Although white is synonymous with these more chilly months it seems that as soon as I start to wrap up that little bit warmer, white escapes my wardrobe. I always think that white looks so fresh, simple and of course angelic. So I’ve picked out my favourite white pieces out at the moment to inject some much need seasonality into my wardrobe…
How it has taken me this long to write this post I do not know! And honestly to simply call the incredible Audrey Hepburn a style inspiration seems somewhat degrading. I have read so many books about her and her philosophies and it’s safe to say that she has taught me how to approach life with utter kindness. That’s without even mentioning her charitable work. But nevertheless her style does continually influence my look. Alongside Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf her look is one that I continually try to emulate…
Here are a few things that I have been loving recently…
1. Alexander McQueen Dress
This dress may be as fussy as it comes but that’s what I love. It so pretty and the fact that it’s so over the top just means that wearing this you’ll always stand out.
2. Zara Cape
I have probably been watching too much of Arabella Golby’s YouTube videos but I have been lusting over so many capes recently and this is definitely my favourite, just look at that furry hood!
3. Bow Clip
This is my current favourite hair accessory. It’s so pretty and is such an easy way of smartening up any look.
4. Peaky Blinders
Ah blimey this is one of my favourite hours of the week at the moment! It’s so dramatic, cinematically pleasing and stylish. Definitely one of the best tv programmes on now.
5. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine
For my birthday I received this lovely lipstick in the colour mutine and well it’s a delightful little number. I’ve been wearing it most days since.
I’ve always wanted to try a DIY french manicure set but I was concerned that when I used it, they were going to look shockingly bad. I have to say with this little Bourjois set I have been very pleasently surprised! The ingenious little brush for the white tips is great and makes it super easy to achieve delicate tips. With a few tiny touch ups throughout the week I definitely think that they last a good 7 days. And to me 7 days of prettiness is pretty darn good.
Overall I’m super happy with these little wonders. They have certainly become part of my daily life.
