FIVE TIPS FOR TONAL DRESSING


WHAT I'M WEARING

TROUSERS - TU CLOTHING
TURTLE NECK TOP - PEACOCKS
JACKET - TOPSHOP (old)
BOOTS - LAMODA
BAG, GLASSES & BELT - PRIMARK
BERET - AMAZON
NECKLACE - CARTERGORE 
RINGS - TU CLOTHING

I am living for full black outfits right now!
 It's my favourite go to colour so why not wear it all at once?!

Now I know it's not everyones cup of tea dressing head to toe in black and a lot of people tend to avoid it, seeing it as a fashion faux pas. But it's really not the case and besides this look can essentially be recreated in any colour you want!

STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE


WHAT I'M WEARING

JUMPER - PRIMARK
SKIRT - TU CLOTHING
BOOTS - DR MARTEN X LAZY OAF
BAG, GLASSES, CHOKER - PRIMARK

I don't shy away from many things when it comes to clothing, fur coats ✓ PVC pants ✓ crazy hats ✓ but the one thing I've always struggled with is skirts. Don't get me wrong I love them ... but on other people. I'm like Goldilocks when it comes to skirts they're either way too short or way too long and when I do find one with a perfect fit I never know how to style it!

GROWN UP GRUNGE



WHAT I'M WEARING

T-SHIRT - PRIMARK
JACKET - THRIFTED
TROUSERS - PULL & BEAR
SHOES - LAMODA
HAT, BELT, BAG - PRIMARK
GLASSES - EBAY
BANGLE - CARTERGORE

THEY'RE BACK!! Yes, I couldn't resist bringing back the PVC trousers, I am just obsessed!
Anyway, putting aside my current vinyl obsession, in this weeks look I am showing you how I do grown up grunge...

Grown up grunge is an odd term as grunge is something you usually associate with youth and angst. But it has evolved so much throughout the years gaining popularity, particularly within the fashion world. Ironically grunge started as an anti-fashion 'movement' but it's more mainstream now than ever!

MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE



Okay, so I was going to bring you guys an outfit post this week, but lets face it, it is way to cold in the UK right now to even think about going outside. And besides it wouldn't be much of an outfit more like Joey in that episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S when he wears all of Chandler's clothes!

So I thought it might be interesting to share with you the products that I am currently using in my everyday make up routine.

Kiss From A Rose


What I am wearing:
Cher t-shirt - H&M
   Velvet Shirt - Thrifted
Ring Beret - Amazon
Jeans - TU Clothing
Grey wool coat - Zara (similar)

I love to go out and explore new places, but over the past few months it's just been way to cold and dreary to find the motivation to even leave the flat! So earlier on this week we decided to make a visit to Wollaton Hall Garden and Deer Park. It is such a beautiful place with gorgeous architecture and gardens, I'm glad we actually got out and did something! My favourite part of this 500 acre park though definitely has to be the cast iron glasshouse, it is stunning and would be even more so in the Summer when everything is in bloom, I'll have to come back again! It was such a beautiful place that we couldn't resist taking a few images, also the lighting was just perfect!

OOTD with NICCE LONDON


WHAT I'M WEARING

HOODIE - NICCE 
TIGHTS & BAG - PRIMARK
BOOTS - DR MARTEN 
JACKET - THRIFTED
BERET - AMAZON 
JEANS - BOOHOO

How is it still winter!? It has been so cold recently it feels like it's never ending! 
As you can tell winter is by far my least favourite season, I get cold way too easily. Over the last few months I've been trying to keep warm in the way that I dress, so for me hoodies have become a fashion staple. I love a good hoodie they are incredibly versatile and so easy to wear. Long gone are the days when they were associated with antisocial behaviour and slobs. From the runways to the high street, hoodies have had a major fashion overhaul and I am loving it!   

So the clothing brand NICCE have recently released a new range of contemporary hoodies and sweatshirts and I was kindly sent one to style and create an outfit with. If you like the minimal vibe and want some quality staple pieces for your wardrobe then head over to their website where you can find this women's grey sweatshirt along with a range of other neutral coloured hoodies, sweaters and jumpers. These are great items to have in your wardrobe as they can be worn all year round. Their minimal designs and neutral colour palettes will fit effortlessly into your existing wardrobe. I believe that you should always have high quality staples as these are the pieces that you wear day in, day out. They are the building blocks of every outfit.

 Valentine's day, the Marmite of commercial holidays, you either love it or hate it.
Personally I've never been one to celebrate valentine's but when is there ever a better excuse to dress up in red and create a valentine's inspired look!?

PVC Trousers


'LIFE IN PLASTIC IT'S FANTASTIC'

I have been obsessed with this vinyl / PVC trend for a while now. From trousers and skirts to shoes and bags, it is just everywhere and I love it! My collection is slowly growing, I have a couple of skirts and a few PVC accessories, but what I wanted the most was a pair of PVC trousers. They are just so chic and edgy, I had to have a pair! 

MY LIPSTICK COLLECTION


I was recently sorting through my lipstick collection and was thinking it's been an age since I did a beauty post on here. I still have so many lipsticks, despite having a big clear out! So I thought why not swatch them all and review them along the way. Now without further ado here is my current lipstick collection... 

BACK TO BASICS


WHAT I'M WEARING

JUMPER - PRIMARK

For this weeks look I've gone back to basics, no layering, just a simple two piece outfit. Now don't get me wrong I love to layer and play with statement pieces but sometimes you just need a simple go to outfit, something thats super easy and quick to put together.   

How I wear ... THE MONOCHROME TREND


WHAT I AM WEARING

COAT - ZARA (similar)
SHOES - LAMODA
HAT, BAG & HOODIE - PRIMARK
SUNGLASSES - EBAY
TROUSERS - CHARITY SHOP (similar)

Welcome to my first outfit post of 2018! 
I have decided to start the new year off with a simple but classic monochromatic look. 
I absolutely love the monochrome trend, there is just something so chic and timeless about it. There are a number of ways to achieve this sort of look, it's such a simple technique that gives your outfit a big impact without the use of a bold, statement piece. Everything you need to create a monochromatic look is probably already in your existing wardrobe.
