Winter Warmers

New Look has seriously upped it's game recently! I never used to be a huge fan, but I've recently converted. There's a New Look pretty near to where I work, so as you can imagine my lunch breaks are usually spent seeing what I can add to my wardrobe. 

This cape is an absolute favourite of mine. Not only is it perfect for this winter weather, but the autumnal colours fit perfectly into my wardrobe, making it an absolute staple in my day to day outfits. You all probably know by now that I'm a massive fan of faux fur so the fact this cape had a fur trim made me fall even more in love!

I opted for a simple outfit to compliment this cape, with a black roll neck and my joni jeans. I completed the look with my H&M floppy hat, perfect for those days I want an extra ten minutes in bed.

I've spent the day putting up Christmas decorations...keen I know, but it's my first year in my very own house so excitement just got the better of me, I can't wait to share the finished look with you soon! I'm absolutely knackered from all the excitement and I'm about to curl up on the sofa with the boyfriend for the evening.

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

Simple Stripes

 I think as I get older I'm appreciating more simple looks, and realising I don't have to wear the most out there outfit to be considered 'fashionable'. I did wonder if this outfit was a little too plain to be featured on the blog, but actually I really like it!

This striped t-shirt was a bargain from the Urban Outfitter's sale - I could of bought this in every colour if I had the money. I teamed it with my new black Topshop joni jeans - I'm actually really excited about these jeans. I've lived in my old Topshop jeans up until now and as much as I loved the fit, I had to except that they were no longer a lovely shade of black but instead looked like a drab grey. Now I have a new pair I can't believe I didn't invest sooner, the difference a fresh pair of black jeans can do to your wardrobe is crazy.

November Wishlist

Jumper - Topshop / Fedora - ASOS / Coat - River Island / Bag - Selfridges / Skirt - Topshop / Cami Top - Miss Selfridge

I still can’t quite believe that it is November, like seriously it feels like it was February a few weeks ago! This year really has flown by.

I should probably stop lusting over clothes for myself and start Christmas shopping..but there’s always next month for that, right?!?

For me, the winter months are all about embellishment, polo necks, faux fur and dark autumnal colours and this post shows that perfectly.  How dreamy is this River Island faux fur coat? I’m not sure I can justify adding yet another coat to my collection, so this one may have to stay on my wishlist. 

What are you lusting over this month?
