Frolicking in a field v.s. freezing in the snow. I wanted to shoot this top for so long. I took it to Paris but never wore it. So in a free moment with Hayden we went and shot in a field somewhere. Then it snowed and I couldn’t pass up the chance to wear it in the snow.
How to wear an evening look during the day.
The easiest way to wear an evening look during the day is trainers. Simple mono chrome, tonal trainers/sneakers. Mine are Converse* from Footway, They have faired so well and look amazing still and are the easiest shoes to clean. And nude lips as soon as you whack a lip on it’s a completely different look.
Just by adding come key elements you can change the look completely. Add a luxurious coat. Thins heavily one is a vintage inspired one from M&S and is so versatile. It’s not a classic trench but more a 70’s hair band style coat.
Accessories to add to make this look an evening looks is a small handbag. This Folli Follie one is perfect, fits just the essentials and adds that pop of colour. Purple is a big colour this season. Jewellery is always a safer bet in the evening. Go for gold for a classic look or silver to be more modern.

Forever trying to get that shot. This pillar was so high but looks so small. I was so nervous, thinking I’d end up in french A&E from falling off it. So ridiculous I was shaking like a leaf.
A love poem to my new coat…
It’s long, it’s blue I wore it to the lo(uvre) …?
I am obsessed with this coat. Full credit to my friend Marshaine for showing it to me because I love it so much. I needed a new coat to replace my red one (which is falling apart) and I can’t get enough of it. The coat reaches my knees which is such a comfort for me because I am so tall and over sized things just look average on me. The high pockets, lets talk about the pockets. They just under the boob area, also knows as the waist. Giving the coat some shape and to not make it look like i’m wearing a sack.
Hair in a low bun because that Parisian wind in no joke. Later in the day we went up the Arch de Triumphe and my hair was all over the place so a chic low bun was the only option.

I’ve seen so many bloggers here and just didn’t think we’d have time to go here. I wanted those blogger photos so much. I saw that we could cut through to get to our destination one day and found this place. I loved it so much we came back more then once. Make it your mission to go here.
The tartan dress in a Zara piece which I’ve been waiting to wear as such for a few weeks. I’ve worn it with jeans but never as a dress. I think from now in it’s just going to be a dress. I felt super chic with the asymmetric hem and cuffed sleeves.

Just arrived back from Paris and couldn’t wait to show you all the photos I took. This is the look I wore to Premiere Vision on Thursday. I spilt breakfast down my shirt 10 mins after putting it on, what are you going to do?
I wanted to dress smart because it was my professional day going to Premiere Vision so I picked a monochrome look and this Top Shop coat for the pop of colour and excitement. Hair was in Plaits because Paris was so windy and it was much easier to just tie it up. Tie the plaits together for a twist on the classic look.
There will be more Paris posts coming your way soon, so hold on for them. I can’t wait to go back. Hayden and I are thinking in Summer and go to Versailles too.

Do you guys know about footway yet?
I am so excited to talk about these Converse with you. Footway contacted me and asked if I wanted to be sent a pair of shoes to review. Of course I said yes. I had never heard of Footway before but I can see myself shopping on their site again.
Footway present the different types of shoes you can pick in a visual table. Black silhouetted shoes are lined in rows for ease of navigating to the shoes of your dreams.
I knew right away that I wanted trainers and looked through so many options. These mesh leather parchment Converse are a god send. It snowed the day before these photos were taken and I was worried my feet would get cold, but my feet wear toasty warm.

Can you tell that I love my new denim jacket and shirt?
I walked past this field a few times and thought that the lighting was so beautiful and soft and pink in the evening and the perfect place to shoot this outfit.

Celine debuted a pair of silk trousers with a monkey pattern on them at their AW/17 runway show. They are total heaven and couldn’t get the print out if my head. H&M have reinterpreted the pattern and created a shirt dress ( pictured) and a skirt. H&M added adorable crowns to some of the monkeys. They remind me of Hanuman. Anyone else a real R.E buff at school?
It’s really starting to feel like Autumn, which means I can wear more earthy warm tones. My tan vintage leather jacket paired with my dark brown Osprey are perfect tones to work with the pattern of the blouse ( dress). The pussy bow collar is usually such a frumpy look but paired with a denim mini skirt makes the whole look a little less granny chic and more 70’s hun.

Getting a cute jacket is one thing, then finding out it’s one of the key pieces for this season is a whole other kettle of fish. I got this jacket purely because it was cute and I love a jacket. Glen Plaid ( Prince of Wales) is all over the blogosphere at the moment and I couldn’t be happier.
I knew that this victorian inspired blouse would be the perfect fit with this look. Really bringing out the 70’s elements, which I am all about. Finally added my mums hand-me-down of a vintage Calvin Klein faux fur bag.
I wore this look to the Dorset Wine Festival at 10 Castle Street, which I’ll tell you all about soon. Thank you for reading.

Blogger friends are truly great, they understand that you want cute photos taken of you infront of colourful walls. They know the angles to shoot you and how to make you look confident for your blog. Poppy is one of these friends, we met at university and got on like a house of fire and have taken photos for each others blogs before. We spent a good hour getting the right shots of our outfits. She’s really talented and the best because I love the photos.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know that I love a good jacket. My mum actually got me this jacket from a charity shop, about 10 years ago (I know right this jacket is old).
I love bright and bold jackets and should be wearing this jacket more. The clashing colours next to my silk scarf shirt just makes the whole look so bold and statement. The faintest blues in the jacket are picked up with my Lulu Guinness bag, which is my pride and joy. Did I mention that it has fish on it?
Ofcourse I added bat earrings to the look, I love a bit of whimsy in an outfit. I was inspired by Wednesday’s costume in The Addams Family musical which was why we were in Southampton. We went to see the show on opening night at The Mayflower. If you’ve not seen it yet, please do it’s great ( there will be a review on the blog soon)
