Lookbook: Top of the World

Topshop Hat, Mango Top, Topshop Leigh Jean, Topshop Loafers, Michael Kors Watch.

I love hats. I’m not sure where else I can go with that sentence but I do love hats. I don’t wear them often because the British weather seems to love blowing them straight off my head but I think they can be the perfect piece to style up a simple outfit. I now have a small collection of hats in different styles and materials from beanies to trilbies.

I’m wearing my trusty Leigh jeans from Topshop and a Mango white shirt. I’ve never brought anything from Mango before but I actually really like the material and fit so I think I may get more Mango items in the future. Unfortunately we don’t have a Mango store in my hometown so I am restricted to searching the internet for their items.

Lookbook: Relaxed

Warehouse Jumper, Topshop Boyfriend Jeans, Vivienne Westwood Bag, Converse Trainers, Michael Kors Watch, Me & Zena Ring

So I am slowly catching up on my outfit posts which mean you may be seeing a lot of them over the next week or so. I keep finding more as well, I’m not even sure when I took them anymore. I pulled together this outfit for a cinema trip with friends. I have been trying to get some use out of the bag because I brought it years ago and I haven’t used it in ages. I’m finding this with a lot of the stuff I want to wear at the moment; I keep finding things in my closet I haven’t worn in ages and feeling like it is a new item again but struggling to find things to wear with them as my style has changed so much over the last few years. I’m still not sure about this bag. I think it may end up on eBay soon.

Lookbook: Shades of Blue

Asos Navy double breasted coat, Oasis thin jumper, Topshop Leigh Jeans, Asos cross body oval lock bag {similar}, Primark Slippers

Navy Blue is probably my favourite colour because it literally goes with everything, its calming and a great neutral to have in your wardrobe. I have a tendency to find blue and wear it all together on occasion, generally because I want a monochrome feeling without wearing black as I have to wear black for work.

This ASOS coat was a complete steal for me as I brought it at the start of summer in their sale for £35, which was half price and I love it! It’s not too thick and I can still fit a big jumper under it. Little did I know oversized coats would come into fashion for A/W, lucky me.

November Wish List

So now that I have exhausted all my New York photos and dreams of travelling I guess I really had better get back to posting outfits, beauty posts etc. So today I am going to share my wish list for the next few months. November always ushers in the start of the winter season for me as it is the final month of autumn and the weather in the UK always turns a bit odd (It is either freezing but sunny or raining but warm).  So here is my November wish list

1.  A Red Coat - Currently I'm crushing on this Zara red coat but I have ordered one from ASOS as well so I can compare and decide which I prefer. I have always wanted a red coat but I have never found one that the style and colour matched the vision in my head. These two are close so we will see which wins!

2. Jacquie Aiche Stackable V Ring - I have had my eye on this ring for a while, I love the simplistic design as I feel it could be worn casual or dressy. I will probably treat myself to it out of the money I made from my Ebay sales, it feels good to sell on some bits that I no longer want and get something new that I do instead.

3. New PJ's - I am a sucker for PJ's in the winter. The only thing I want to do is come home from work get in PJs and curl up with a DVD (glamorous right?). I have a voucher for £10 off at Next and at £26 minus the discount these Flannel Button up pyjamas will probably be keeping me cosy over the winter months.

4. Knee High Black Heeled Boots - I'm not sure why but I have had a fashion craving for some nice heeled boots which fit sleekly to my legs so I can wear them with tights or tucked in denim. My friend recently gave me some dark brown ones she doesn’t wear anymore so I think I’ll give them a go first to see how I get along with some so I can take my time searching for the perfect pair.

5. A Winter Dress – I love wearing dresses in the summer and I would love one that I can wear in the winter with tights and boots. I’m not sure whether I will end up with one because as a general rule I tend to wear jeans all winter until about March {other than the odd night out}. Currently I love Zaras Lingerie inspired dresses for the lace trimmings and tartan check prints.

Kate Spade New York Goodies

A few days ago I went to Bicester village shopping outlet for a day out with my family and I got myself a few little treats from Kate Spade New York while I was there. I thought I'd just share these with you today, I don't know whether a shopping haul post is something people would like to read on my blog but we shall see.

First up is the little bow ring which I have kind of adored for a while but they have never had in my size before so I finally managed to get one. It looks even better for the fact I had done my nails white with gold polka dots after feeling inspired by the free Kate Spade x Nails Inc polishes on Glamour magazine this month, of which I may have 3 because they are such beautiful shades. 

I also got the lovely white and gold bangle because I have been looking for bracelets and bangles to stack with my watch since I got it back in June but this is the first that I can see myself wearing a lot. I have to be really careful with bangles because I have such tiny wrists and if I am not careful they just slip straight off. But because this comes on a clasp it is much smaller than normal bangles so hopefully I won't lose it. 

Lastly I treated myself to this little pouch bag which I feel is an ideal size for my camera. This way when I decide to go out and take my camera with me I can just pack a card for money and go. If not it is still nice and small and could be worn under a coat for evenings in London or my hometown when I just want my phone and a card.

Lookbook: Mixed Metals

Topshop sporty style top, Topshop fauz leather skirt, Kurt Geiger KAD sandals, Asos Bag, Michael Kors Chronograph watch, Topshop Rose-gold cross ring, Me & Zena emerald gem ring, Accessorize silver rings, Handmade Rose-Gold beaded bracelet.

I'm never really sure what to write when I do style posts. I suppose the inspiration behind each outfit would be normal, except for this outfit i just threw it all together. Through the summer I went crazy over these Kurt Geiger sandals over the summer to the point I felt they were surgically grafted to my feet! So incredibly comfy and with only a small heel ideal for both day and night. I have a lot of catching up to do with outfit posts as I took so many over the summer and haven't got round to uploading them yet, hopefully I will have caught up by Christmas.

Lookbook: Artists and Amateurs

Topshop Embellished Shoulder Jumper, Topshop Ripped Boyfriend Jean (similar), Converse Sneakers, Michael Kors Weston Satchel, Vivienne Westwood Watch.

Please excuse my funny face but I dont enjoy having my photo taken at all, especially by my dad. This is my second outfit post from NYC, unfortunately the weather turned and went cloudy but remained really humid. New York I love you but your weather hates my hair! Believe it or not my hair had been perfectly quaffed only a few hours before these photos were taken. This look is my Downtown look so to speak with it being jeans, sneakers and a sweater but I wore it while exploring uptown.

I adore uptown Manhattan, Central Park for its quiet serenity in the midst of the hustle bustle, Madison and 5th Avenues for their shops {a lot of which we don’t get in the UK}, The Met museum which I wish I had actually had time to explore, the buildings. If I ever win the lottery I will be going back and exploring mid and uptown so much more.
