Fondant Fancy

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 nowโ€ฆ!

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?

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?
