A Grey Kind of Day // Let's face it, we all get those days when all we want to do is stay in bed and hide ourselves underneath the warm covers and not face the world outside. I've been feeling like that lately, especially since the weather has decided to take a dramatic turn into autumn. I'm missing the sunshine of summer and, quite honestly, feeling a little grey. I think my mood is reflected in my clothes this week - I've been gravitating towards darker colours, and that's when you know winter is coming. Without sounding too much like a character from Game of Thrones, winter is coming but I'm excited. I like the colder and darker months, as to me, they resemble hot chocolate, fuzzy socks and an excuse to stay in bed for longer.

Bug Bee Boom // You will all know by now that I'm a huge lover of jewellery, or generally anything that sparkles, and have been building a collection of costume jewellery for many years now. There is nothing better than dressing up a relatively simple outfit with a dazzling pair of earrings or making a statement (literally) with an intricate necklace. Last week, I was very fortunate enough to be sent a pair of earrings from a new online jeweller, Bug Bee Boom. I opted for a pair of shiny swing-back earrings, as I'm absolutely obsessed with this style at the moment. Swing-back earrings are very different from the traditional earring shape, and helps to add the perfect amount of sparkle. The swing-back style is also very unique and can help to transform a simple outfit - just let the earrings do all the talking.

Autumn Days // So, it's that time of year again - Autumn. As soon as the leaves turn golden brown and fall to the ground, we know it's time to throw on layer upon layer of cosy knits, and enjoy our first pumpkin spiced latte. It's also my favourite time of year, I think because i'm from Scotland and we do Autumn so well here. We get the rain, we get the dark nights, we get the roaring bonfires and we get the bright abundance of snow as soon as December hits. I think that's why I also love to dress for A/W, and one brand that does that so well is Simons. This vibrant brand has been offering the most sought-after styles and looks since 1840! I've selected a few of my favourite pieces from their new collection, which are perfect for the colder months ahead.

Florence and Fred // Ahhhh Tesco. Whoever decided to launch a fashion range for the company knew they were taking a risk - launching a supermarket clothing range can have dramatic effects for retailers, good and/or bad. It's funny, I actually wrote a research paper on F&F during my final year at university. I decided to give it a read over before I wrote this post and I had forgotten just how successful F&F has been worldwide. F&F is now worth over £1 billion, so this is serious business. I own two F&F dresses and I love them. They are stylish, flattering and perfect for either work or casual events. I think F&F do a great job at catering the market and I love being able to shop for clothes whilst also drooling over a packet of crisps and some burgers.
