Burgundy on Burgundy

Hi All! As you can see I've been a tad bit obsessed with burgundy this winter so regardless of whether its trending or not I will still be rocking my burgundy pieces with pride!

I wore this outfit to uni yesterday and as I was also going out for a meal with some friends in the evening, I wanted to go for a casual but polished look that was suitable for both day & night. If ever there was a way to achieve both a day & night look, then a blazer and skinny jeans combo has to be it! Adding a blazer to an outfit always automatically gives it a more polished and smart feel and if you're not a skinny jeans person then a pair of fitted trousers or a skirt can look just as good. 
I paired mine with a sheer frill detailed top which I have owned for about 4 years and never tire of wearing and a pair of burgundy jeans identical to a green pair I wore in a previous post here. I wore a pair of brogues/Flatforms from H&M which are very comfortable for the day and smart enough to carry off a night look. Alternatively, I would also wear this fit with a cute pair of pumps or ankle boots.
The jacket is another H&M buy (H&M really have their moments!!) which I got in the x-mas sales and its definitely one of my favourite items right now because I feel like I can wear as plain and simple an outfit as I want and it will still add some character to it. Super warm too, so its a win-win!


Hope you like the look & follow my blog for more!
Enjoy your week!

Houndstooth Jacket

Firstly, apologies about the quality of the pics, God will bless me with a proper camera veryyy soon...until then my Samsung is fulfilling its purpose and as long as my outfits are relatively visible I can live with it. 
Secondly, if you are reading this - thanks for visiting, hope you like & feel free to leave a comment/suggestions etc as I have a lot to learn about this world of blogging.
Now the best bit: The outfit. This Jacket! This jacket has been sitting in my wardrobe for a while now as its been way too cold lately to wear anything this thin without freezing to death. But yesterday the weather warmed up a bit (for about 2hours lol) so I got the chance to rock my beloved houndstooth and leather combo. Houndstooth has been trending for a while now and it looks set to be around next autumn & winter so not a bad buy (especially as it was reduced from £75 to £15)!  I especially love the leather sleeves on it because as we know leather accents makes everything that little bit nicer + more stylish. I wanted to keep everything else simple so I went for a plain black top, with this high-waist skater skirt and a pair of gold-detailed pumps which I think complimented the jewellery quite well. 
I have more outfits planned for thing jacket which I can't wait to share once the weather gets a bit better so look out for them.

Happy weekend!


Going with the flow

This is an outfit I wore sometime last week but didn't get time to post, better late than never though! I love converses because they can be worn with/look good with just about anything and they're so comfortable. Been wanting a pair of the high-top versions for agesss, so I think that will be my next treat to myself! 
I teamed these with a long skirt and denim jacket but I love that this outfit could very easily be changed into a formal/outing outfit by switching the converses to some pointy-toe heels (or cute pumps) and the denim jacket to a black blazer and.. voilaa a whole new look!! 
As I've said before (if I haven't it'll become evident very soon) I have a major obsession with coats and proud to say that I've added two babies to my collection this winter! yaay. lol. Anyway this is one of them - an oversized fur collar type which I got on sale from Debenhams. I got it a size up because size 8 was sold out but I'm glad I did because I can wear big cardigans and jumpers underneath and it still fits perfectly.
