Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

Now that it is September I feel like it is officially acceptable to start talking about my winter wardrobe. So I am featuring my first pair of winter boots (which I actually bought last week); these darlings from Marks & Spencer

They are super comfortable and will definitely be my day to day footwear in the coming months. Simple, practical and oh so versatile- perfect for the more wintery months.

The Next Edit

IMG_3798.JPG

Cape

I always think that capes look so sophisticated and this one reminds me of a Blair Waldorf number circa season 1 and 2. Thus I absolutely adore it!

LBD

Where oh where can any girl go wrong with a little black dress? Especially in the more wintery months. Whether it’s for work, the weekend or the Christmas party this is one versatile number!

Jumper

I adore really thick jumpers; they are much needed if you’re a cold fish like me. With jeans and a pair of knee high boots this will always be a winner.

Blouse

Chic as always and a gem for those Christmassy nights out.

Pencil Skirt

This skirt is such a beautiful colour, blush pink is always one of my favourites. The style is equally gorgeous so all in all it’s pretty darn perfect!

Clutch

I have a clutch very similar to this and find that it brightens up so many outfits- a necessity for the dull winter months.

Grey Skirt

Now this skirt is not my usual thing but I think it’s super cute and it reminds me of something Olivia Palermo would wear; and that lady never seems to get it wrong. (Check out what makes her one of my style inspirations here)

Lace Panel Blouse

Now this however is something I am very much accustom to. A lace blouse in a deep red colour ticks all of my boxes.

Culottes

I haven’t quite decided yet whether I’m going to partake in this season’s culottes trend, when I was younger I had a beautiful pair that were my prized possession, but I know these are where I’ll start if I decide to take the plunge.

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

I came across this brand of shoes, Chatelles, on twitter the other day. So I went across to their website and instantly fell head over heels for their super cute range of loafers. My personal favourites are these little beauties

IMG_3780.JPG

I have been loving orange recently and think that these could spice up any outfit, making jeans and a white blouse look effortlessly chic. I also love the fact that you can personalise them by adding coloured tassels of your choice or even your initials; but I think I’d stick to my plain, yet far from boring, pair. I can feel that I will be lusting over these for quite a while!

The Zara Edit

IMG_3764.JPG

Some of my favourite new pieces from the forever stylish Zara…

Boucle blazer

I can never resist a blazer and I am definitely missing a white number in my wardrobe. I love just how classic this piece is- a must have for a little riviera chic.

Sunglasses

Now granted sunglasses aren’t a necessity in Autumn, especially in good old Blighty, but I just love these! They’re so stylish and will bring a bit of elegance to any outfit, whatever time of year.

Shirt

A must. Always.

High waisted jeans

I’ve very much been lusting over these recently. They’re so easy to wear and are just a little twist on a staple wardrobe piece.

Coat with fur collar

A dusty pink coat, with a fur collar, absolute perfection!

Necklace

This necklace is just so stunning and yet it will go with so much. It could be classed up for an evening or worn with a white t-shirt and jeans for a more relaxed look.

Jacket

Another charming jacket that I fell for. I imagine it’s just one of those things you’d find yourself constantly reaching for.

Mini City Bag

This is such a sweet little bag, perfect for everyday.

Silk Blouse

I love sheer blouses and this pink one is an absolute darling. I’d wear it with jeans and ballet flats for a day look or with a midi skirt and heels for an evening look.

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

I spotted these little Nine West beauties in InStyle this week and instantly fell for them which surprised me because they are not my usual look.

IMG_3753.JPG

More than anything I think that these shoes are perfect for a smart work look worn with wide trousers and a blouse or for a weekend look with a midi skirt and a t-shirt. They just seem incredibly modern and unique to me which I love; they are certainly a subtle statement pair of heels!

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

I thought I’d go back to basics this week with my choice and these stunning ballet flats from French Sole

IMG_3722.JPG

They’re simply beautiful and with fans of French Sole like Kate Middleton and Emma Watson these are assured every day luxury. The fact that they can be worn with as much as jeans to a floaty tea dress they are the perfect investment. Casual chic at its best!

Quick Review: Good Things Five Minute Facial Face Mask

20140803-081258-29578326.jpg

Good Things Five Minute Facial Face Mask | Boots £3.99

Well, well, well this little bottle definitely is a good thing. Firstly I love how quick and simple it is. I hate having to faff around so the fact that this goes on so easily, is so speedy and rinses off so well is a big plus for me! The texture is lovely, nothing too thick, and it smells very pleasant. As for the results, it definitely leaves my skin feeling softer and dare I say it more radiant. It does exactly what it says on the tin in regards to making my skin clearer, brighter and smoother.

If you like a fuss free face mask I would wholeheartedly recommend this little beauty.

Wardrobe Staples: The White Shirt

Hello darlings,

Every girl needs that one great white shirt that she can continually rely on…

Classic

20140805-185410-68050069.jpg

Uniqlo £14.90

A simple white shirt is one of the most versatile items a girl can own. They are perfect for work to weekend wear- whether it’s layering under a shift dress, with a suit or with a jumper and jeans- the white shirt is an absolute essential.

Sheer

20140805-185411-68051756.jpg

Dorothy Perkins £10

A sheer blouse is a perfect piece for a classy yet relaxed evening look; pair it with a dark pair of jeans and a bright pair of courts for instant glamour.

Broderie

20140805-185411-68051103.jpg

Topshop £36

I have always loved this kind of shirt (I had one from New Look that I wore to death). I think that they are a great way of adding a little bit of interest to an otherwise simple outfit, with a pair of jeans and a navy blazer this will always be a winner.

Modern

20140805-185410-68050464.jpg

ASOS £25

I fell in love with this shirt as soon as I saw it. I think that this is a wonderful work shirt- something that is equally smart and stylish, such a little beauty!

Romantic

Ralph Lauren £115

Now although there is definatley a time and a place for this kind of shirt, and granted it isn’t the easist to wear, I feel like it may just be my favourite of them all. The grandure of this shirt makes it perfect to be worn with an A-line skirt (nothing too bulky) and heels- suitable for such affairs as a dinner party to a christmas party.

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

I have always loved the classic look of slingback pumps (a hint of the 1950s housewife) and I think I’ve found the perfect pair in these little beauties. I absolutely adore them; they are so chic! I’d wear them with a full skirt and a chiffon blouse for a really versatile look.
