Oops Looks Like I Lost My Iron




|| Faux fur gilet – Miss Selfridge(similar here) || Halterneck top – Market(similar here) ||

|| Skirt – Forever 21(similar here) || Boots – H&M ||


I know what you are wondering, yes my skirt is the most creased skirt you have ever seen and yes I have lost my iron. Well, I actually have never known where the iron is in the house I am living in at the moment, because I have never used it, and I probably never will. This is a feeling that most, if not all students have. If you don’t feel the same as me, please forgive me for my careless attitude; I do hope though that the crinkles in the skirt add a little something extra to the outfit! If you have been reading my blog for a while you may recognise this skirt from an earlier post when I first moved to London - you can find that post here. Due to the bare armed nature of this outfit, like my last it was also taken a couple of weeks back when it wasn’t as chilly as it is now! As you may know, I love anything fluffy or furry so this gilet is one of my favourite pieces. You can also find this gilet here in another post too! For today’s look, I went for quite a neutral palette with black and browns as the basis of the outfit and a splash of nude pink to break it up!

Marshmellow


|| Crop top - Topshop || Denim Shirt - Dorothy Perkins || Skirt - French Connection ||
|| Hat - Vintage || Bag - Nica Handbags || Pumps - Accessorize ||


This look is a little different for me, if you compare my last post to this it is a prime example of how I don’t have a set style. The last look is a little more masculine with a slouchy shape and this look is extremely feminine. As you can tell, I took the photos for this look about a week and a half ago when it wasn’t as chilly as it is now! I did add this marshmallow-y fluffy hat on that I found in a vintage store in Paris though to keep my ears warm (and to hide my not too perfect hair that day!) The amazingly incredible skirt I am wearing is so thick and perfect for transitioning into winter with no tights and also for when it is really chilly and you need to wear a pair. To keep the look from looking too 1940’s I decided to add a crop top and for an extra layer, as it was not warm enough to just leave it at that, I decided to add the denim shirt you can see here, tying it at the waist to keep the feminine silhouette. You can never go wrong with a bit of navy and gold, so I pulled the look together by accessorising with my favourite Nica gold bag and Accessorize flat shoes.

Scarf Print Trouser


|| Jumper - boyfriends wardrobe || Trousers - French Connection ||
|| Leather Jacket - USC (similar here) || 
|| Boots - H&M || Bag - Primark ||

Scarf prints will stay close to my heart for eternity. The trousers I am wearing here are so silky to touch and feel quite thin, yet they seemed to keep my legs nice and warm even though it was quite a chilly day! I find it quite hard to wear navy, as navy doesn't really go with black (is this a universal rule or is it just me?) As I literally had no other comfy shoes to wear on a tourist-y kind of day around London that would have looked better than these shoes - which by the way seem to go with everything ever, I decided to go for them AGAIN. (soz) I then accessorised with my regular-on-smile-at-style black bag and a black leather jacket to bring the outfit together and harmonise all of the colours.
P.S how amazing is the colour of the sky in these images? Perfect timing or what!

ET


|| Jacket - USC (similar here) || Top - Urban Outfitters || Jeans  GAP via charity shop ||
|| Mules - French Connection || Bag* - Boohoo||

I am absolutely in love with this top! I love anything shiny and extra terrestrial like - I would probably wear tin foil if it was socially acceptable. I purchased these shoes at a French Connection sample sale, as soon as I saw them I literally grabbed them as quick a it was physically possible! They are so chic! With this outfit, I went for a casual/smart kind of look and pulled the outfit together with the black jacket and shoes. I love the irony of the clutch, you can see the slogan on it clearly in the picture below, it reads 'Designer Handbag' when it obviously isn't! Love it!

DANGER!!! *Ross Voice*



|| Coat - French Connection || Skirt - French Connection || Shoes - H&M || Hat - Market || 
|| Bag - Market ||

Don't ask about the name of the post, it is pretty awkward for anyone who doesn't watch Friends (who doesn't?) I had one of my mental blockage thingys again where I can't think of a name for a post. It always fascinates me when I see bloggers give their posts really creative names. Today my post is galled DANGER because I am simply standing in the middle of a road and Ross shouting 'DANGER' at Rachel and Pheobe in the one with Unagi stuck in my mind so I just thought I'd go with that! 
As you can see there is a lot of French Connection gear in this outfit and there are more to come. This is not because I have fabulously won the lottery and can afford high end high street clothes, it is simply because there were two sample sales at work recently and I went a little crazy seen as though everything was super super cheap (I'm talking like a fiver for a top!) I did get a little carried away but hey ho this kind of thing doesn't happen very often! although I got a few close ups, I didn't manage to get any of the skirt but it is amazing, Ill have to feature it on here again soon so you can get a proper look! The Coat that I purchased (at only £30 may I add!) is actually on the website at the moment so you can get a better look at that there if you wanted!
