FILA




Fila t shirt - Urban Outfitters | Slacks - ASOS | Bag - Urban outfitters | Trainers - ASOS 

---------------------------

Finally got myself this tee and a pair of navy clean pleated slacks. I've been wanting to style this look for a while but wanted to find the right pieces. This is the ultimate casual/cool/comfy outfit I've ever worn. These slacks are amazing and I will be doing some more outfits styling these. 

I also finally picked up a pair of white sneakers, from Lacoste to be precise... 
Yes, I'm super late to the party but after debating weather or not to do so, I caved in. I did have to break them in a bit but no blisters or pains (thank the shoe gods!)

I was going to style the slacks up with a plan tee but thought that this logo one fits better and the nice little pop of red ties everything in. I guess if you were to wear this out in the evening you could glide on some red lipstick and winged eye liner. I, however, just opted for the super lazy make up and kind fresh face and hair.

Oh & how cute is this bag I picked up from Urban Outfitters? This cute little fluff ball will deffo be making another appearance soon! It's also the perfect size to pop in your phone, your cash card and your favourite tube of lipstick!

Mathilda





Dungaree - Lazy Oaf | Sunnies - ASOS | Vans - Urban outfitters | Choker - Lamoda UK 
White tee - ASOS | Lip liner - Urban Decay | Wig - Ebay | Beanie - Ebay

---------------------------------

Happy halloween guys! This is something super last minute that I threw together as I wanted to do a halloween outfit post. I just pulled together what I had (minus the wig; I bought that off ebay for like £2.39!) and decided to be Mathilda from 'The Professional'. If you guys haven't seen this movie then I suggest you go watch it!

So Mathilda is a girl who seeks revenge on a gangster who killed her family, with the help of a hit man, who happens to live next door and takes her in.

I decided to go for his wig, which initially was meant to be for a 'Mrs.Mia Wallace' look but the wig was too short I quickly changed my mind. I started off with my make up, really natural and used a red  lip pencil to draw and smudge myself a bloody nose. With my outfit, I wanted to wear some type of dungarees, I swear she wears some sort in the film, not too sure but thats what I had in mind. This cute cat one is from Lazy Oaf and arrived yesterday, just in time. Thank you Lazy Oaf for this little number which works perfectly!

A large white tee to pair underneath and her signature choker. This one is from Lamoda UK, Mathilda's is more of a velvet thick band one but this is what I only hand around.

She also has these cool round glasses, kinda Ray Ban like but I didn't have those either, the next best thing was this circle frame ones I picked up in the ASOS sale for £7!

To finish it off, you can carry around a potted plant, a teddy or a gun. I only had the teddy around so opted for that.

And voila! A Mathilda outfit/costume that you can work easily into your everyday wardrobe! Minus the bloody nose of course!

Yesterday's OOTD


Jumper - H&M | Scarf - Primark (similar) | Loafers - Chanel | Bag - Alexander Wang 
Fluffy key ring - Ebay | Jeans - Topshop

---------------------------------------------------

It was surprisingly bright yesterday but still chilly. The weather in the UK really can't make it's mind up huh? Anyways, I had to go into Reading to return something in H&M - but turns out I exchanged it for this jumper & then take my little sister to see a movie. 

I haven't worn my Chanel loafers in a while so I thought I would with my fave pair of jeans and the most cosy scarf I got from primark! 

This outfit has been gotten a lot of attention and love on my instagram so I thought I would share it with you guys here too!

Yetti



Coat - Choies (similar) | White tee - ASOS | Jeans - Topshop | Boots - Choies (original
Sunnies - ASOS | Phone case - Topshop

-------------------------------------------- 

Don't know why I've been M.I.A from doing mirror selfies for a while. But I took these the other day before filming and then the camera died. This coat is thicker than I remembered and this is deffo going to be my go-to coat when it snows. Think I'll blend in to be honest but that would make such a fun hide and seek game.

Also saw this beautiful pair of sunnies in the ASOS sale and had to get them. Another steal at £3.50!
Crazy! These are white but in a matte finish which is different. It makes them looks super expensive and adds something extra to your outfits.

(I'm also writing this post whilst watching Geordie Shore, so I'mma have to love you and leave you cause I can't focus and I'm super sleepy!)

Another outfit featured in my latest fall outfits video. You can view it here

I love the green on green in this outfit and the layering. I thought having an all black base would really up lift the colour and thought the old buckle brogues would be a nice touch.

Mixing the two shades of green really makes the items compliment each other and it was a total accident that I picked up the green fedora. I love it though and one of my faves that I will wear a lot of in the next couple of weeks.

A slither of red




Scarf - Primark (similar here) | Jumpsuit - OhMyLove | Vans - Urban Outfitters | Blazer - Topshop

-------------------------------

I don't normally wear scarfs, but something about a classic tartan design calls my name. I saw this beauty in primark and for only £5 I had to get it. It's super warm and cosy and has so much fabric my face buries it self in it.

I decided to just throw it over the top of loose long layers and black attire. I also feature this outfit in my newest video, which you can view here

Mirror mirror.

-----------------------------------

It's been a while since I took a mirror selfie so here it is. This outfit is a sneak peak of my new youtube video I'm working at the moment. Hopefully I can finish filming tomorrow and upload it then as the lighting today was a joke.

Also, these shoes are magical. Super comfy and I can't wait to take them with me to LA next month.

Dinner attire





Leather jacket - AllSaints | Boots - Zara | Two piece - Missguided | Clutch - H&M

Hair installed by - Beyond Glam

--------------------------------------------------------------

So this is a bit of a different post. I've been getting a lot of messages via tumblr about what I would wear to a birthday meal, a dinner out with friends or just a going out outfit in general and thought I would style this up and show you guys!

I love sticking to co-ords of any type for the evening. They are perfect to throw on and are ever so comfy so that you don't feel constrained when you're out and about. This baby pink ribbed set is from Missguided and yet so simple and minimal. Having the fabric in a ribbed material for me, just makes it look more expensive than it really is. I opted for the light pink as I've been gravitating towards light shades lately. Nudes, beiges and pastels. Silly time to really as we are heading to autumn/winter.

But I feel with this outfit, you can switch and change, you can pair it with a nude lip for a romantic vibe or a bright or dark purple lip to make the outfit really edgy an perfect for a night out in shoreditch!

With the shoes, you deffo don't have to wear boots but I thought it was something different and I love to be comfy. You can for sure switch it up to a pair of lace up heels or if you are gunna wear this outfit during the day for a casual look then you can also pair with trainers!

To throw it all together, of course I've paired my AllSaints leather in there too and kept my hair really simple and blown out.

Wednesday Addams & Coven with H&M

So as halloween approaches us quickly, people always ask yearly, 'What are you going to be for halloween?' or 'Any costume ideas?'
I always opt for my all time faves and basics which I can transform from my daily outfits, make a few tweaks here and there and you can happily go to a halloween party and fit in.

This post I've partnered up with H&M again and wanted to show you guys two outfits I styled together from their H&M range. One being totally inspired by Wednesday Addams and the other inspired by AHS: Coven. Apart from this being totally focused on halloween, you can still wear these outfits out daily! It all comes down to how you style them!





First the first look, Wednesday Addams; I opted for this dress from their halloween collection which literally is perfect. This dress with the white collar pretty much has done the job! I styled it with a pair of basic black brogues, hair in pigtails (biggest feature) and kept my make up pretty simple. I chose a shade lighter for my foundation, used a muted pink shimmer blush and kept my lips nude or you could totally goth it up and slick on some black lips!
And if i's chilly on your way to a party then you can easily throw on a black duster coat!





Second look, we are focusing on the AHS: Coven girls. Think black, basics, jeans and fedoras. Effortlessly cool. I'm focusing on Taissa's character of Zoe Benson, whose straight slick hair, tom boy cool and gives us fedora envy. I paired this loose vest with the long sides with these awesome black stretch skinnies as she pretty much wears them all the time. Having some long and loose fitting pieces seems to be the style tone through out the whole season and when I saw this vest I actually choose a size medium instead of small to make it extra baggy on my body. Tying it all together, is this black fedora, H&M does awesome styles also, if you are feeling a wide brimmed fedora or a short brimmed one. Of course, we can't forget the boots, I paired some cut out boots with a slight heel to add some height and a leather jacket as I thought a long coat would cover the sides too much as I wanted them to be on display.

With these looks, like I said, you can definitely wear them more than once and adapt them into your daily outfits. These H&M pieces will also last for ages in your wardrobe and with the collection being reasonably priced, it sure wouldn't hurt your wallet!

Let me know what you guys think below in the comments!

Basic instinct.





Shirt - Choies | Boots - Choies (original here) | Jeans - Topshop | Grey t shirt - Zara (similar here)

-----------------------------

This is one of the best comfortable outfits I've styled in a while. I had to pop out to Reading for my eye test today and wanted something quick to throw on but not look too rushed.

This combo, any colour really works well on most occasions and I love how laid back it is. I also received these boots from Choies this morning so though I would wear them out today and see how they were and I've had to issues! They are the dupes of the Givenchy boots but I couldn't spend that much on a pair of shoes so I was so happy that Choies were able to gift these to me! Thank you Choies!

That sporty vibe





Mesh t shirt - Dark pink London | Trainers - Miamasvin  | Leather shorts - Missguided  
Crop top - Choies (Similar here) | Choker - Urban outfitters | Name necklace - Anna Lou of London

-----------------------------
I wanted to style something that took me back to my style a year or two ago but make it workable with my wardrobe now. I opted for a sports luxe feel by adding the trainers and the box boyish cut of the leather shorts. 

I also received this beautiful mesh polka dot t shirt from Dark Pink and knew it would go perfect with this leather short and crop combo to add a bit of extra detail. I kept the cuts simple and went with all black and paired it with two silver necklaces. My choker and my name necklace which added such a nice personal touch and ties everything together. 

Again, if you're not feeling the mesh tee then you can always pop it off and wear without!
