Fondant Fancy

IMG_3425

Feeling a bit like a Fondant Fancy in my lasting pink obsession, but I don’t really mind! It’s keeping me going at the moment as the dark mornings are continuing. I would say I’m pretty ready for spring now…!

Saturday saw the boyfriend and I take a stroll along Hammersmith river with only a few runners and a bit of a chilly wind to keep us company… so much so, that I had to keep hold of my hat pretty tight!

After our morning around Hammersmith, we drove up to see my parents for the afternoon before meeting up with two of my lovely friends and their boys for a Chinese meal. I haven’t been out for a meal back home for a good year or two so it was nice to catch up in our home town!

I wanted to wear something that could transition from day to night… so a knit with a leather look pencil skirt was the best option. The necklace is pretty big and sparkly, but who doesn’t like a bit of sparkle? ;-)

How do you transition from day to night?

Weekend Walks

IMG_2859

Last weekend, before our Christmas at Kew evening, the boyfriend and I grabbed a coffee and went for a little walk around Kew Bridge and the river.

Knowing we would be outside all evening, I made sure I wrapped up warm with this grey knitted jumper and my leather look trousers from Topshop, which I have worn a lot since I bought them a little while ago.

On a weekend I do like to keep it simple, so a knit with these trousers is quite a trendy, comfortable option. I feel that a statement necklace is also a must to complete the look. I am loving my pink coat too, which I can’t stop wearing! (I promise I do have other coats but this one is just taking centre stage right now!)

What’s your weekend outfit of choice?

The Leather Pencil Skirt

IMG_2816

A little while ago I was lusting over a leather (or faux leather) pencil skirt, which I blogged about here. I finally found one!

I love how many ways you can wear a leather look pencil skirt… Dressing it up for a night out or wearing a casual piece to dress it down for day time. On this occasion for a day with family, I dressed it down with a plain striped tee and a cardigan and added my statement necklace and my Fedora hat. The tights and boots are also necessary in this weather!

The skirt is a perfect piece for the Christmas season, which is nearly upon us as you can do the day to night look pretty easily! I will keep you posted on a more dressy look involving this leather look beauty!

Have you caved in to the leather pencil skirt? How do you style it?

Meet Buddy

IMG_2675

This is Buddy… he’s a Springer Spaniel and he’s the new addition to my friend Claire and her husband’s little family! They recently got married (you might have seen my outfit post from their wedding here) and within a couple of weeks, they have added this little puppy dog to their married life!

The boy and I went to visit them last weekend just outside London for a day in the ‘country’… (I couldn’t help getting the wax jacket and wellies out… perfect excuse!). We took Buddy on a walk where he met a little doggy friend who wore him out so he was asleep for pretty much the rest of the night, letting us chat and eat dinner!

Buddy seemed to like my outfit… especially my jumper, which he found particularly tasty! ;-)

It has made me want a Pug puppy even more, although it does sound like hard work!

Cropped

IMG_2481

Another busy week down…! Very happy it’s Friday, although I can’t look forward to a lie in tomorrow as I have a pretty busy weekend ahead seeing friends and family! Talking of weekends, last week the boy and I went on a little walk around Syon Park and managed to get a couple of shots of my outfit where the wind wasn’t blowing hair in my face! ;-)

I’ve had this fluffy cropped jumper for a while and I wanted to find a bit of a different way to wear it other than with a high waisted skirt/shorts/jeans… Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those options, and I’ve been wearing it with said items too… but I wanted to get a bit more wear out of it as I love the colour and the fluffy texture!

I decided to try it with one of my favourite tops, one that seems to save me on those days when no outfit seems right! (I’m sure I’m not the only one!?) It’s a dip hem silk-like number, which I usually wear on it’s own or with a cardi, so pairing it with a jumper was a new one, but in my opinion it works! It felt quite effortless and casual and for a weekend day out (as well as work as I can wear whatever to the office), it felt like a good choice! It’s definitely saved as one of my go to outfits from now on!

What are your thoughts on cropped jumpers? What do you think to this combination?

Have a lovely weekend guys! :)

On Top Of The World

IMG_2401

Apologies for being a bit quiet this last week… it was my birthday so I was a bit of a busy bee!

This weekend, Paul and I met some friends at the Alexandra Palace Fireworks and before it got dark, we took a few snaps!

IMG_2398Topshop Camel Jumper .:. Topshop Coated Jeans .:. Zara Leather Jacket .:. Topshop Cut Out Boots .:. New Look Necklace .:. Primark Hat (Present) .:. Mulberry Satchel

It was a tad windy and I had to keep hold of my hat pretty tight, but the view over London was amazing! To keep a little warm during the fireworks, I wore a new purchase I made on my birthday day off – this organza camel jumper. It’s quite light but super cosy, and the organza panel on the front makes it a little different to your usual knit. I do have a mild obsession with knitwear but this is currently one of my faves!

I’ve also wanted a jewelled necklace for a while and found this little gem in New Look the other week whilst browsing with my bff, who actually bought me my new hat for my birthday! (Fankoo! ;-)) The berry colour really compliments the camel jumper, which is good news as it will go perfectly with my camel coat too!

What do you think to my autumnal outfit?

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

A Leopard Never Changes Its Spots

Sometimes you want an easy outfit for work or play and I like how a patterned cardi can update a simple outfit and make it look that little bit cooler.

IMG_2087Topshop Cardi, Long Sleeveless Shirt, Matte Leather Look Leggings (similar here) and Belt .:. H&M Loafers

I wore this outfit to work the other week. I’ve pretty much had most of the pieces in my wardrobe for quite some time and I like how sometimes you find something you haven’t worn for ages and find a new way to wear it! For me it was this long sleeveless shirt. I added a belt to break it up and give it a little more shape and chucked on my leopard print cardi and voila!

What do you think to this outfit?
