I know the novelty of New Years blogposts have probably worn off a little now but I just wanted to share with you a couple of photos of what on New Years Day. I was pretty tired from the night before and so I opted for something that was a little more comfy with just these old pyjama-inspired trousers, my ballet flats and this knitted sweater. The embellished detailing on the collar of the knit is a perfect touch for bringing some luxe to the look. A great outfit I think for spending New Years Day at home with the family and enjoying a beautifully prepared roast beef dinner!
There is nothing that feels quite as luxe and chic as when i'm wearing silky, loose fitting clothes and obviously it's an extra bonus when the pieces are cut to perfection! Both the top and trousers that i'm wearing here, were bought last summer but I never got the chance to wear them together, so a few weeks ago I took the opportunity to wear them whilst the weather was still playing fair.
The two prints combined have a certain modern traveller feel and usually it's nice to over accessorise looks like these but this time I kept things slightly more modern and minimal in my approach.
Well i'm hoping you like the look lovelies,

For the last couple of years, you would likely find a lot of my purchases to mainly consist of a pair of well fitting trousers, a skirt, a pair of slightly quirky shoes or a wardrobe worthy coat but an item I've probably neglected buying the most would definitely be blouses and probably tops in general, except for the odd knit. I think that this mainly down to the fact, that three or four years back, blouses were all I seemed to buy and they were usually very romantic and feminine and so I just grew tired of them, as well as my style changing and evolving. But back to the current day and blouses seemed to of made their way back onto my style radar and here I share with you some of favourites, I think they each possess the right amount of grown up femininity whilst also having a fairly easy-chic and simple feel.
I look forward to reading your comments and tell me, how do you feel about blouses? Are they for you?

Today I want to show this outfit I wore a couple of weeks back when me and the boyfriend were popping out to grab some lunch. I love this Venessa Bruno skirt sooo much and I will always take the opportunity when possible to wear it, the colour is perfect, I adore the flirty shape and fit it, plus I find it an ideal transeasonal piece.
I've wanted to wear it in a preppy-chic way for a while but because its been a very cold winter, there hasn't been many opportunities to do so. Finally the day came where I woke to find the sun was shining, I was like Maan I'm just going to go for it (we'll pretend that mother nature didn't surprise us with a heavy downpour of rain and slight touch of the hail stones just as we finished our lunch and were about to leave) I wore it with my Cos A-line shirt and I am pretty sure they still sell it online, I'm thinking that I should buy a couple more of them as I love a good white shirt and with it having an A-line shape, I find it to be a great and very chic alternative to your everyday white shirt. I added in this cute little navy cardigan not only for that classic preppy touch but also because navy and olive is quickly becoming one of my favourite colour combos. Annoyingly it was to cold to go without tights, so they had stick around. And hey what do you think of these shoes? would you believe that I've had them since I was about sixteen years old, they were from New look, as I used to buy all my shoes from there when I was that age and with my obsession with keeping practically everything I buy, they found their way back into my life and I swear their one of the comfiest pair of shoes I own, which is crazy as I think I paid about £15-20 for them!
Anyway that's all my lovelies hope you like,

So the reason I called this post "foggy" is as you can probably already tell is because of the foggy weather we had when we were taking these photos. I wore this outfit over a month ago now and it was when I was up very early to go to London and well the weather was like I said very foggy. We had very little time and my sister was the only one available to take my photos, which meant I was unable to mess with the settings, so i've had to try and sort the pictures out myself but lets be honest they aren't great.
Anyway because I would be traveling and walking quite a bit throughout the day I needed to stay as comfy as I could, so the styling was really quite simple. I wore my splendid navy turtleneck with this super chic skirt by Vanessa Bruno, which you would of seen before but the last time I styled it was at LFW and I stupidly got carried away and forgot to take photos, such a shame because I really loved wearing that outfit. Oh well. I wore this navy Surface to air jacket, as not only dose is look cute with the skirt and of course keep me really warm but I also really like how the navy looks with the olive colour of my skirt.
I finished of with my Grenson brogues, as it doesn't get much comfier then these, unless I was willing to loose all sense of style. I as well wore my Marc by Marc jacobs bag, Topshop beanie (last time you'll see it featured in a post as this was the day it got stolen) and of course the Ray Bans. All great pieces for bringing a slightly edgier tone to the look.
Well Thats all for now folks. Back soon (with some good pictures) and take care,
