Elephants Gold

Knitted Jumper - Topshop (eBay)
Elephant necklace - Topshop
Skater skirt - H&M
Boots- Office

Hey guys!

Super quick post today! Posing outside in these freezing temperatures really takes its toll... Please ignore the red nose and watery eyes! Haha currently in the recovery phase after attending my best friend's engagement party on Saturday night. It was a brilliant night and big congrats to the happy couple - whoop! 

I'm currently bundled up in this lovely, chunky knitted Topshop jumper I won on eBay last week (I swear finding bargains on that site is my greatest talent) and haven't stopped wearing it under my many layers. I found this little elephant in the Topshop January sale a few years back. I haven't worn him much (sorry lil guy) but he's great at sprucing up an average outfit. Will definitely be giving him a few more outings soon!

Cold as Ice

Denim jacket - Vintage
Skirt - Topshop
Jumper - ASOS
Necklace - Oasis
Bag - H&M

Hey loves, 

Brrrrr. Safe to say I was extremely cold after this little photo-shoot in my garden. The first lot of snow fell yesterday and I just know there will be more to come... This is only the beginning! As Ed Stark would say, Winter is coming! 

This time of year is allllll about layering. I sometimes amaze myself with how many items of clothing I can wear at one time and not look like the Michelin man, but it can be fun experimenting with all the clothes in your wardrobe that are only worn on cold days! Time to get those chunky, knit jumpers and ridiculously wooly hats oot! That reminds me, I need to buy a pair of gloves, my poor wee fingers have been resembling icicles lately!

I'm currently sat in my pyjamas with a warm cup of tea, listening to the rain outside hit my bedroom window. I think I'll stay like this all day. Looks like hibernating season has also arrived. 

More soon! :)

Tartan Skirt - ASOS
Satchel - ASOS
Belt - Vintage
Boots - Office

Hello Lovelies!

Been a little quiet on the blog side of things recently, as uni deadlines are looming... But I'm trying my best to keep on top of work and the old bloggio. After all, it is a nice escape from the books! Currently in love with this skirt from 'Glamorous' at ASOS. It provides me with just the right amount of festive cheer and bright colour on these dark days! 

It's nearly the most wonderful time of year again! The Starbucks red cups are out, the sparkling festive city lights are shining and all the Christmas adverts are bombarding our televisions... All clear signs that Christmas is well and truly on it's way. I'm especially excited this year because being the youngest of four children, (I'm 21) there have always been some siblings missing from Christmas day... But amazingly, this year we will all be together! Bring on the family squabbles, laughs and the games of Cluedo and Monopoly I'm going to make everyone play! 

Also HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who follows my blog. I recently surpassed the 1,000 follower mark and I can't even describe how much it means to me!! With constant support and lovely comments, you guys make this whole blog thing worthwhile and enjoyable, so thanks again...
 You guys are the best!! :)

More soon,

Monochrome Madness

Floral Dress - ASOS
Fringed Bag - H&M
Shoes and Watch - M&S
Necklace - Vintage

Hey Loves, 

So I realise it's wayyyy too cold to be wearing a little Summer dress like this one on cold, winter days, but I had to show you this new favourite of mine; a monochrome floral number from good old ASOS. I've worn this dress as a skirt in previous posts but wanted to show you it in it's entirety, as it has a lovely, sweetheart neckline and flared skirt - winning combo in my opinion! With it being very comfortable and easy to throw on, this dress will definitely play a big part in my Winter layering! 

I'm now off to pile on a mountain of jumpers, hats and gloves as I tackle coursework for the rest of the day in my freezing, cold bedroom... A very uninspiring and boring Saturday lies ahead... Having a break at the moment though and listening to this song: 

It must be the 'most played' song on my iPod at the moment, getting me through long and tiring bus journeys to and from uni, and giving me inspiration during much needed walks and jogs around my local park to relieve stress and get away from dreaded coursework. But of course, before any exercise, I'll make myself a cup of tea first. And maybe steal a few biscuits too...

More soon! :)

November Favourites.

I'm sure we've all spent countless hours of fun on Polyvore, lusting over items we can't afford and making pretty outfits we wish we could wear! One can always dream though and it's the perfect site to dwindle away the rest of your day, and get fantastic outfit inspiration! Although it's a very dangerous website to be on, when you should be focusing on uni work, but everyone needs a rest sometimes! :)

This is my current favourite look. A classic style with an edgy grunge twist. Pair a shredded, crop jumper with a pleated, on-trend tartan skirt. Top up with shades, lipstick and your favourite handbag, and you're ready to go!

What do you think of the look? Check out my Polyvore profile here for all item info!
