OOTD – Styling a Statement Coat

Hi my beauty’s, hope you’re all ok and enjoying the Weekend? Is it me but does the week go really slow and the weekend seems to go really fast. It’s like you blink and then bam it’s back to the dreaded Monday morning. This weekend I went shopping and not just for necessities like food and boring household stuff (nothing says welcome to adulthood quite like that and oh bills). I actually went clothes shopping. If you would like to see a mini Primark haul let me know in the comments.

Styling a Statement Coat

In winter it’s essential that you wear layers that keep you warm and are practical for all weathers including snow. But wearing a warm Winter coat doesn’t mean you have to pick practicality over style, introducing the statement coat. The statement coats job is designed to keep you sheltered from the weather while providing the outfit with the style that makes you stand out in a crowd. In winter most of our outfits are covered by layers such as jumpers and coats. So keep the rest of your outfit plain and let the coat make the statement for you. You can also pair with statement accessories if you like to stand out from the crowd.

OOTD – Black & Yellow

Hi, my beauty’s hope your all ok? Life’s been hectic this last week as I have a new job, so I’m slowly adjusting to getting outta bed in a morning and getting myself and Ava outta the door on time. As far as my goals (read post here), that’s a pretty big goal ticked off. I’m still working on a morning/night routine so if any one has any tips for me that would be really helpful.

The Trend Behind The Outfit

Leather trousers and Faux Leather trousers were once just reserved for Bikers and rock-star musicians such as Jim Morrison (don’t think anyone will pull the look of as good as him though). Now leather trousers and faux leather trousers are a wardrobe staple and are regularly seen on models off duty such as Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss and Kendall Jenner. Leather trousers and faux leather trousers are a wardrobe staple and so versatile and you can create a number of looks around this statement piece. You can dress them down with trainers and a slogan tee or dress them up with a nice top and heels.

OOTD – Winter is Here

Hi my beauty’s, well I’m back with my favourite posts to write a simple OOTD post. I wanted to make a Game of Thrones reference in the title but alas winter is already here and don’t we bloody know it. I nearly froze to death (ok slight exaggeration but not far off), taking these pictures.

The Trend Behind The Outfit

Another year the Shearling coat has dominated the Autumn Winter Season. The coats were seen on the catwalks at Marc Jacobs, Balmain and Alexander McQueen. In a range of different colours and textures and styles. From corduroy, teddy coats, trucker jackets, aviator jackets and denim jackets all lined with real and faux shearling. Even accessories with shearling detail walked the catwalks from hats and bags and boots. This is a trend that won’t go away and keeps you warm from the winter chill.

Yellow was another big trend for 2017 with catwalks such as Chloe, kate spade and coach all featuring the colour in all different shades, one shade that seemed to be everywhere on the high street and street style stars was Mustard. I love this shade of yellow, as it suits most people. From jumpers, shoes, hats, jewellery, coats I’m sure you will have seen someone rocking this it shade last year. Don’t worry the good news is that the shade mustard seems to be going nowhere and was seen on the Spring 2018 catwalks for Moschino and Isabel Marant. So don’t go throwing away your mustard colours just yet.
