Casual

Kimonos and Capes

So the fact that it is Autumn has taken its toll on what I wear, sadly the times of dresses, shorts and vests are long gone because the weather is bitterly cold and windy lately and lets not forget the rain! So I have been wearing items that are more warmer as well as comfier and two trends that I really love this Autumn are capes and kimonos, they are creative and colourful as well as comfy and stylish and a great autumn/winter must have!

Kimonos have been in fashion this year quite a bit I don’t think the trend has died down once and I doubt it will for a long time and for a good reason, they are stylish and comfortable and that’s all we care about in the colder months. Many retailers and online stores sell some really lovely kimonos that look fantastic and I really wish I had the money to go and buy them all but sadly that’s a dream! With this in mind, capes are also very much in trend and desire, for many of the same reasons as kimonos and fortunately I am lucky enough as I brought a red and black cape last year and it is a staple wardrobe piece that I love to wear with t-shirts and jeans and all sorts of combinations!

Definitely a key piece to anyone’s wardrobe and a star buy 🙂

My Outfit Of The Day – First Day Back At Home

Today was my first day being back at home, I must admit it was super nice to wake up in my double bed in my house and feel at home! I haven’t been home for about 4 months now as I have been away at University in Leeds as you would’ve known if you’re a constant follower of mine! 🙂 I’ve missed being at home and missed seeing my family, but I thought to mark the occasion of me being back at home I will write a little post about my outfit of the day today!

Me and my parents went to town and just went to Costa to grab a coffee and catch up so today I wore:

  • My blue skinny jeans
  • My tan boots
  • My leather black jacket
  • A mustard dark brown fitted jumper with cute shoulder buttons!
  • My new handbag – which is beautiful 🙂

It was super sunny today so the picture is a little bright, but that’s my overall outfit of the day for a casual day out 🙂

Hope you all are having a lovely day!

My First OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) Post!

Okay so my partner brought me this Warehouse blazer and I love it so I thought I would do an Outfit Of The Day for everybody to see how I wore it today! This is my very first Outfit Of The Day post and I am hoping it will be the first of many to come if it receives good views 🙂

So why do I love my blazer so much? Well… My blazer is a lovely shade of beige with some light brown stripes on it, I love it because it’s such a beautiful colour and can be matched with nearly everything! But today I chose to wear a plain black vest and blue skinny jeans so I looked casual with a hint of formal. I really am a big fan of blazers as I love to look and feel professional and quite classy but I also think they’re great because you can wear them with almost anything even casual attire, so a blazer is always on the top of my favourite pieces of clothing list. In my wardrobe I have tons of blazers but this is my new found favourite, it’s soft and warm and fitted which make it perfect in my eyes at least!

What else I love about blazers is that you can wear it in many different ways and still look great, sleeves rolled up or rolled down, buttoned up or unbuttoned – you name it it’ll work 🙂
So this is how I went to University today and I felt happy with the outfit I chose, I didn’t really use many accessories as I always wear quite a few bracelets anyway and I have a special necklace on which I keep on 24-7. But never the less I love accessories especially if they are cute, unique, big or bold! 🙂

Anyway hope you liked my first OOTD post :)!

My 5 favourite items of clothing in my wardrobe

So being an avid clothes lover and fashion conscious girl, my wardrobe is jam packed full of pieces of clothing. I openly admit I do not have enough storage space so much so my partner has to keep some of my clothes in his accommodation as well! & back home in North London before Uni I was in the same situation where I had to many clothes and not enough space. So putting all these clothes to use I thought I’d share my 5 favourite items of clothing in my wardrobe with my faithful followers! 🙂

  1. My dark blue denim skinny jeans – Obvious essential and easy to wear with near enough EVERYTHING.
  2. A red embellished teddy bear jumper I picked up from a vintage fair when I first arrived at University -It’s dead cute!
  3. My Hello Kitty onesie – There is nothing better than coming home from long seminars and snuggling up in it!
  4. A Gok Wan black formal fitted shirt which my mum brought me before I came to Uni – Perfect for the formal/casual classy look.
  5. A new tunic shirt I brought from Dorothy Perkins in the sale – It’s autumn colours are beautiful and it was a bargain! WIN.
