Heyyy,

 

Well I have definitely rekindled my deep love for darker colours again after pretty much refusing them last winter, okay refusing is definitly an exaggeration, what I mean to say is I was far more into colour last winter. It can be tricky styling darker colours together as each piece can easily all seem melt into each other and end up looking like one big dark blur. Breaking up that blur can be done by either layering different textures or creating interesting length play, it's all about creating depth. An annoying thing about winter is that it can bring very dark and dull days even early on and it was just unfortunate that I decided I was wearing this outfit, on one of those dark and depressing days and the result of the photos wasn't great but I hope you still enjoy them. 

 

Anyway on to the look, You might of seen these trousers before, they were bought on sale about four years ago from All Saints for a ridiculously cheap price but the only thing was I found them very difficult to style due to the way they hung, that was until I realised that I just need to belt them up higher in order for them to hang right. I love that they are mens inspired and have this baggy yet still kinda tailored look. With this outfit I wanted to contrast those androgynous tones in an ever so slight way, so I teamed my Paul & joe sister floral blouse with them, which admittedly is a bit cold for the winter but then that only gave me more reason to layer. And when it came to layering I also wanted to create a bit of texture play and so I layered my gilet over my leather, a combination I couldn't get enough of last year and am certainly still loving this year, works every time! 

 

I finished of with my Flatform Grenson brogues and a pair of navy ankle socks. Also this Topshop beanie that I am in love with but sadly got stolen by a some lowlife bitches ( I know thats not very graceful but in this instance I'm allowing myself to let of a little steam) when I went to London, luckily I still got a few looks out of it that are still to be seen on the blog. I could rant and rave about this but i'll leave it at that. I just hope they realise karma is a bigger bitch! 

 

Okay I have wound myself up and need to go and chill. Hope you like the look lovelies. Thanksss

Black, Blue & a Splash Of Burgundy

Hello everyone,

 

Have you enjoyed your weekend so far? 

Well here is something I wore on a sunday couple of weeks ago. Me and boyfriend were just popping to starbucks for a hot drink and something yummy to eat, I of course had the fruit bread. We also took my lil nephew with us, which is always interesting as he is going to be turning two soon but luckily he was a very good lil boy. 

 

So when it came to deciding on what to wear I knew there had to be a certain amount of comfiness involved as not only was it a sunday but I also had to consider the fact that I might be chasing after a toddler that would probably be running rings around me. Of course I still wanted to look well styled and chic, so this is how it ended up. 

 

I wore these Joseph leather leggings that I lived in last year and I just couldn't wait any longer to start wearing them again and so I teamed them with this navy lace top by Reiss and my black gilet that I love oh so much and am so excited to wearing it again, in fact I am just grateful that it didn't fall apart after wearing it so much last year. Even though individually the pieces are fairly simple, together all their different textures create interesting depth and it's details like that, that you look for and need when wearing a fairly simple outfit. I wore my marc by marc Jacobs Burgundy bag which helped lift the blue top perfectly, whilst also adding a nice splash of Autumn/winter colour. On to the shoes now and I am sure you have noticed by now that these photos aren't the best, the boyfriend was clearly being lazy that day and decided he wasn't even going to bother with the settings and because of that I have ended up with invisible feet, brilliant! So please try and ignore the overall quality of the photos and just so you know I was wearing my Chloe ballet flats, mainly for comfy-chic.

 

Well I hope you like this look. Thank you for any lovely comments and enjoy the rest of your sunday,
