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

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?

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!

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!

Darker Shade Of Red

IMG_1618

Last week I was on a work trip to Cologne which was so hectic, exhausting and amazing at the same time that I needed a whole weekend to recover! (Think I may still be feeling the effects now and it’s nearly been a week since I’ve been back!)

Saturday was spent in my pajamas on the sofa where I could barely move, but on Sunday I managed to get out and about so a simple, effortless outfit was on the cards!  These oxblood coloured leggings are such a nice shade of deep red that all you need with them is a chunky black knit or top! You can’t go wrong with pairing it with a nice piece of jewellery as well! ;-)
