Hey everyone, Happy Halloween!

We're having fancy dress at work tonight and I'm going as a vampire, so check out my WIWTW post on Sunday to see my costume, I might post a photo on Instagram too. 

Back to this post. I decided to show how to style the wrap over skirt in a more casual way. Adding a t-shirt and chunky boots does the trick!

I love this Baroque print t-shirt from Primark, and it was only around £5. 

How would you style a wrap over skirt?

Hey everyone, 

Here is my first look with my wrap over skirt.

I love how versatile this skirt is. As you can see in this outfit, I've styled up for a more dressy occasion, with some nude heels. 

The pink knitted jumper is sooooo nice, I'm glad I found it on ebay. It's going to be great for adding a pop of pink to my autumn winter outfits.

WIWTW (What I Wore This Week) #4

I never used to be a scarf person. I literally NEVER used to wear them. until now. I've worn this one twice within in a few days, so that definitely means I love it!

I wanted a really simple outfit for work today, so I threw on the scarf to add some interest.

I bought this necklace from New Look yesterday and couldn't wait to wear. I absolutely love anything with bugs/insects on, so when I saw this necklace I had to grab it!

I decided to layer my outfit today, instead of tucking my top into my skirt I left it loose. I think it looks nice with the length of the skirt, it gives a slightly more casual look. 

I finishes off the outfit with my trusty knee boots. They're so comfy, so great for work .

Today I felt like wearing my speckled skater dress, but I wanted to wear it in a slightly different way. I pulled out my pink fluffy jumper and realised the colour matched the speckles in my dress. When I pulled it over my dress I loved how it looked, and of course it was nice and warm!

I kept the rest of my outfit simple, with a necklace, black tights and black boots.

New In: Autumn Skirts

Hey everyone,

I picked up a couple of really nice skirts recently and wanted to share them with you.  

The first is from Topshop, and when I first saw it online I fell in love with it! I love that it is a really trendy shape, the wrap-over, and that it is faux leather. The colour is a gorgeous grey/cream, and I think it will be a classic piece in my wardrobe for a long time. I've already thought of lots of outfits for this skirt, including a pink fluffy cropped jumper and some basic tees. 

The second skirt, from New Look, I picked up because I loved the thick, tapestry-style fabric, and the colours are gorgeous. I picked up some basic long sleeved tops in burgundy and racing green to wear with this skirt. 

Do you like to wear skirts even in the autumn/winter?

Hey everyone, 

This is my favourite dress at the moment. Cami dresses are going to be huge this season, following on from the cami vest trend this past summer. 

The dress is so flattering, and the colours are gorgeous. 

I decided to wear my autumnal khaki jacket over the top, and my military-inspired boots. 

Check back to Saturday to see how to get these Autumn Floral looks on the High Street.

Hey everyone, 

I've had this floral skirt for quite a while. I really love the colours in the floral print, so decided to complement them with my burgundy jumper from H&M. 

The colours are really lovely colours, perfect for autumn!

I kept my accessories simple, with brown ankle boots (a  must for autumn) and a brown bag.

Hey everyone, 
If you haven't realised by now, I have a slight obsession for ankle boots. OK a huge obsession. 

I ordered these boots from ASOS after seeing a girl I work with wearing a very similar Topshop pair. They looked gorgeous on and I knew I would get lots of wear out them. 

I cant wait to wear them with dresses and tights, or with cute ankle socks peeping out. 

Have you got your winter boots sorted?

WIWTW (What I Wore This Week) #3

Hey everyone, 

I've been letting the colour wash out of my hair this week, and it's gone a kind of blue-green colour through the front, which I like!

On Tuesday I had a day. I had quite a few errands to run so I decided to go for a very casual outfit. A loose jumper and leggings is the perfect comfy combo for casual days off. 

It's getting very chilly out now, so a coat and hat is a must for when I'm out and about.

I wore this second outfit for work. This is the second time in two weeks I've worn this burgundy striped top, which is very unusual for me. I wore it with some burgundy wet look disco pants/jeans. You can't really see that the jeans are burgundy in these photos, but they look really cool. 

I added my Zara khaki gilet over the top and lion head necklace to finish off the look.

My final outfit of the week is what I wore yesterday. I went out to a local shopping centre that I never really go to, just for a look around and to see if anything caught my eye. I ended up going into The body Shop and picking up the Peach Body Butter, which was on offer for £5 and smells amazing!

Back to the outfit. I took inspiration from the colours in this skirt when I put my outfit together today. It has lovely autumn shades in in, so the forest green top is a great base. I added my scarf which has the same kind of shades in it. The leather jacket with copper-coloured embroidery finishes off the look nicely.

Hey everyone, 

I just wanted to share with you a few great pieces I've picked up recently. 

On my last shopping trip, I was surprisingly attracted to crop tops. Even though it's getting rather cold, far too cold to have your stomach on show, I think crop tops can still work for autumn. Keep an eye out for some 'autumn crop top' styling posts coming up!

I was attracted to the first top mainly because of the embroidery and studding detail. I also love the fact that the fabric looks like it's been splashed with bleach. This top would look great with a black high-waisted bodycon skirt. 

I fell in love with the print on the second top, from Miss Selfridge. I love aztec prints, and they're still on trend for autumn/winter. The beautiful purple/burgundy colour also gives it an autumn update. I'd wear this particular top with my black Joni jeans, and possibly with my berry coloured ankle boots. 

The checked crop top from Primark is in the print of the season. I picked up this top with the aim of wearing it under my dungarees. I would also wear it with my leather skater skirt for a night out. 

This final top, also from Primark, is another huge trend for autumn. Pink and fluffy, it ticks two boxes! I think this top will great with my MOM jeans for a casual look, or with disco pants for a more dressed up outfit. 

What have you picking up on your shopping trips lately?

Hey everyone, 

Here is my second take on the graphic monochrome trend. 

I love this dress/top from New Look. I bought it a few sizes big so that I could wear it as a dress rather than a top. I love the print, and that the back is plain black, it adds a bit more interest to what could be a simple item. 

I always belt dresses that are a bit looser, to define my waist. 

I paired my berry coloured boots with this outfit, to give it an autumn update, and matched them with my lips - MAC's Plumful. 

What colours do you like to pair with your monochrome outfits?

Hey everyone, 

Here is my first outfit style with the graphic monochrome trend in mind.

I bought these printed shorts in Forever 21 while I was in New York earlier in the year. They are a great piece to style for this trend, as they could be worn with a brightly coloured cami, clashed with another monochrome print, or how I've styled them with simple black or white pieces.

I decided to pair a white t-shirt and a black blazer with these shorts for a smarter look.

How would you style these shorts?

WIWTW (What I Wore This Week) #2

Hey everyone,

As you can see from my outfit photos this week, I dyed my hair!

I got a bit bored and decided to try out the new Bleach Cool Colours from Boots. I used Parma Violet and Rose this colour. 

Back to my outfits. On Monday I decided to go for a really casual look for work. I picked up this striped top in a size bigger so that it was a more flattering fit. I think I'll get it in a few different colours as I love it!

I wore my MOM jeans and hi tops as they're both really comfortable.

Another work outfit for Wednesday. I've had this midi dress since last Christmas and I really like it. I love the splash pattern, and the rusty orange colour. My Leather jacket has the same kind of colour through and I think they look good togther.

And finally, yesterday I went shopping with a few girls from Uni. I wanted to wear something a little different, so I put my dungerees over my checked shirt. I think it looks great, especially with boots. I picked up my beanie hat from New Look last week, it fits really nice. Great for bad hair days!

Hey everyone,

A statement faux fur coat is the perfect way to rock the animal print trend this season. Not only will you look super stylish, you'll be super cosy too!

The key to making such a statement piece like this work is to keep the rest of your simple. Here I've style my coat with a pair of disco pants, a plain black tee and a pair of my favourite ankle boots. Basically a blank canvas.

A red lip always looks great with leopard print, and finishes the look off nicely. 

Check back on Saturday to see how to get the look.
