Keep it Simple, Stupid // K.I.S.S - who remembers learning this acronym at school? Whenever I'm writing a report, article or even a text, sometimes it's better to keep things simple. I believe this can also be applied to fashion - less is always more - and was definitely my thinking behind this outfit. Yes, it's super simple but also effortlessly stylish? I've been wearing this skirt non-stop since I bought it back in August - it's that staple piece that just seems to match everything so well. I paired this simple striped top from Primark, alongside my trusty fringed bag from H&M, and voila - simple, understated and stylish. Well, at least I think so... ;)

Instagram // How has your week been my loves? I honestly cannot believe just how fast the year is flying by... It seems as though it was only Summer a few weeks ago, but now we are seeing the start of December?! When did that happen?! Anyways, I'm sharing another dose of inspirational pictures from my Instagram account - you'll notice there are lots of autumnal themed pictures, mainly cozy cups of coffee and gorgeous sunsets... I do love sharing a wonderful motivation quote too, as they always help to brighten my day! :)

Jilly Jilly Design // Hello lovelies, hope you've had a great week. You'll no doubt know from my weekly instagram update posts [see here, here and here], that I'm huge fan of the social platform. It allows me to share, post and find inspirational and motivational pictures, come across new brands and products and interact with so many different people across the world. A couple of months ago, I stumbled across a company called Jilly Jilly Design and instantly fell in love with their quirky & kitsch range of products. Last week I saw that the company were having a giveaway competition and knew I had to enter. It seems like I'm a very lucky duck, because low and behold, I only went and bloody won!

Comfort over Style? // I've spent the last week battling a horrible cold. It started on Monday and I'm still trying to shake it off. Luckily, I work part time so I've been able to hibernate in my bed half the week. My outfits have mainly consisted of cosy pyjamas, fluffy socks and a mountain of blankets. When you feel like rubbish, deciding what to wear can be hard - oh how I wish it was acceptable to wear a onesie to work... When I had to venture outside, I opted for something super comfortable. I threw on this smock 'love heart' print dress that I've had for god knows how many years, and paired with a warm knitted jumper from H&M - I think I still managed to look smart, regardless of the red nose and snotty tissues in my hand...

Instagram // Hello loves, I hope you've had a great week! I'm sharing another load of pictures with you all - these snaps were taken over the last few weeks and feature my love for food, particularly poached eggs with avocado and good, old spaghetti bolognese! The winter months call for delicious food and we need to build up that warm layer of insulation to keep us going through the bitter cold. . .

StickerApp // Oh, how I love stationery! It's one of life's simple pleasures, to open a new packet of pens or begin writing in a crisp, shiny new notebook. I have countless cupboards filled to the brim with pens, pencils, crayons, glitter, and now recently, stickers. I've always been a fan of using stickers, whether it be to decorate a letter, seal an envelope, or just add a lovely touch to any card or notebook. I was recently contacted by StickerApp, an online site that allows you to create customised stickers for any occasion and I was thrilled to order some stickers for myself.

Work Wear // Work wear can be a bit of a challenge, particularly when you want to appear stylish, but also practical, professional and smart. It can be a struggle staying true to your personality whilst in the workplace, and as I've embarked into the big, bad world of work, this is something I've experienced. I'm lucky though, as most of the dresses I've collected over the years can be easily transformed for the office environment. Take this checked number from F&F for example - this old number is a solid staple, I really love the pattern, the thick texture and the over-the-knee length which is perfect for the colder, windy days.

Instagram // Oh Autumn - how I love the arrival of the colder months, the golden leaves and the endless supply for hot chocolate. Nevertheless, I find a part of me dreaming of those warm summer days spent by the beach and I miss that lovely feeling of hot sun on my skin. I'm sharing the last few pictures of Summer that were still on my phone - and find myself reminiscing of the time there were apples growing in the garden and the local funfair was in full swing. Autumn and Winter bring their own amount of loveliness, but there's something about Summer that you just can't beat.

Pretty in Pink // Pink is a fantastic colour. It's a lively, vibrant and more importantly, fun colour to wear - and that's what fashion should be about, am I right?! I'm pretty ecstatic to be sharing this wonderful pink number with you all today! I won this beauty on eBay for four pounds (yes that's right, £4!!!) last week, and was thrilled when it arrived in all it's colourful splendour. It's originally from Oasis and fits like a glove - the dress features a subtle floral pattern, which is such a lovely touch.

Instagram // You'll know from my previous post, that I have a slight obsession at the moment with pretty sunsets/ sunrises. I think it's something about the mellow, purple haze - I just find them very relaxing to look at, easy on the eyes and that's probably why I've been posting so many on my Instagram account. I'm still managing to share pictures from Summer - for example, that ice cream pic was taken back in August, when we had a scorcher of a day. Me and Owen loaded the car and headed down to the beach to spend the day in the sun and enjoyed treats like this one. Memories like that make me miss summer - I love Winter but there is nothing like having hot sun on your skin and not worrying to have to wear a jacket, or a dozen layers for that matter.

New Winter Coat // Oh hello A/W! It's officially time to get your warm winter coat out of the wardrobe and get ready for the colder days ahead! It's always a fab idea to treat yourself at this time of year to a brand new winter coat. I was scrolling online one evening, on the look out for a new one myself, when I decided to share all my favourite finds with you guys. Whether it's shearling, leather, camo, trench, puffa or bomber, I think this list shows a wide range of winter coat styles! Click on each picture to be taken to the product page, you can thank me later! ;)
