Tartan Cape

Coat - ASOS 
Jumper - Topshop
Sleeveless Knit - ASOS 
Shorts - ASOS
Shoes - ASOS 

Welcome to tartan instalment number 2. I abolsutely adore this coat. I was initially concerned I wouldn't get a lot of wear out of it but I've actually found it goes with loads! I wore this at the weekend for a spot of crimbo shopping and as much as I'm not a fan of wearing tights, the temperatures are just too low to avoid them now.

The Return of Tartan

Top - ASOS 
Trousers - Topshop
Coat - ASOS (similar)
Shoes - ASOS 
Bag - Zara 

In the past few days I've found myself wearing at least one tartan garment at a time, without meaning to. I clearly have an underlying love of my native print, what can I say. You may or may not be seeing lots more tartan in coming posts…

I loved how these trousers were the perfect match for the pink in the tartan coat. I remember seeing this coat in the ASOS magazine and then waiting patiently for what felt like years for it to come online, so it felt good to bring it out again for winter 2014.

Friday Favourites - Cape Loving

This week's Friday Favourites post is short and sweet (and a bit late in the day). This cape / coatigan / coat / knitwear whatever you want to call it is currently at the top of my wish list and as soon as pay day arrives, so will this. The price is so reasonable. I don't usually want to spend too much on something I'm not sure I'll get loads of wear out of so this is ideal!

Winter Whites

Top - Topshop
Trousers - Topshop
Coat - ASOS 
Faux Fur Scarf - ASOS 
Shoes - ASOS 

Wowza, long time no blog! It's been a crazy (and rainy) couple of weeks up here in G-town so photo opportunities have been limited to say the least. 

Last weekend I decided to brave the cold and went for an all out winter whites ensemble. There was actually something so fresh and crisp about it and as long as there is a warm coat involved, I'm definitely on board with wearing white in winter. 

I'm sure you've probably noticed that these shoes seem to be glued to my feet right now and to make it even better they're now reduced! I would definitely recommend them for a change to boots this time of year.

Friday Favourites - Home Wishlist

Mixing things up a bit this week with a home wishlist. We've recently painted our bedroom all white and it just makes the room feel so much more light and fresh. I'll hopefully get some pictures up when it's all finished but in the meantime here are some of the bits and bobs I'm loving for the room and the shoe flat in general.

Having only recently discovered Zara Home, I am spending a whole lot of time browsing the beautiful websites and am currently planning my third order. I hardly spend my evening sipping champagne but I just really love that ice bucket! Aside from that necessity the main thing I'm looking for is new bedding. I haven't bought any in ages and I'm just really bored of what we've got. The masculine vibes of the checked H&M bedding makes a nice change from the usual girly florals that are the norm and I'm loving the paisley Zara range.

Insta Outfits

Winter is officially upon us and with its pitch black evenings it has completely removed any chance of taking blog photos before going out in the evening. Combine this with a full time job = not a lotta blogging! So every so often I may do a post with a little round up of some instagram snaps of outfits that didn't make it on the blog. 

I absolutely loved wearing the Topshop pinstripe suit again and you can totally change the look just by wearing a different top. I think this suit is one of the many impulse expensive buys that I've actually got my money's worth and still love it a year later. Thumbs up.

Here we have another Topshop twosie that has recently been resurrected and dusted off. I decided to go for bright accessories to change up the looks this time.

Last weekend we went out for a meal in the pouring rain so decided to go for maximum coverage with this ASOS jumpsuit and my old pinstripe coat. I even finally braved the socks and sandals trend (although you can't really see in this picture) and kind of loved it.

Last but not least a casual dinner outfit. Having loved wearing my pinstripe suit again I decided to wear half of my striped ASOS one in the form of this lovely blazer. Keeping everything else neutral to let the blazer do the talking.

Camel and Blue

Coat - Topshop
Shirt - ASOS 
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - ASOS 

If you follow me on instagram  then you'll already be aware of the arrival of this coat in my life. I've been keeping it in my Topshop shopping basket for weeks trying to wait until payday arrived and that day finally came last week. It's such amazing soft, fluffy material and the colour is obviously perfect. I actually really like the combo of camel and light blue together. It's not a pairing I've thought to wear before but I'm really loving it.
