OOTD: A Tartan Tuesday


Hi all! Hope you have had a great day! Just a quick OOTD post today, nothing too exciting really, keeping it casual. Been for a lovely little walk today by the ocean, and just got in from an amazing three course Italian meal in Victoria (I love Italian food! I literally have no control…) and I now feel that I am actually going to pop out of my jeans! But before I do, I will get this post up for you guys :).

Also, I’m going to apologise now for always doing the same pose in these posts! (boring) So I will try out some new ones for you next time. (This may take some experimentation and pretending that I am on America’s Next Top Model!)

As per usual, I am wearing far too much Topshop (literally everything!), but as I do not work there anymore, I may now switch things up a little and dive into lots of different brands…yay! I am loving the tartan trend at the minute and absolutely love this casual top.

What do you think?

Much love!

OOTD: Back to Black

Hello all! Just a quick post showing you my simple outfit of the day. I am wearing everything Topshop (surprise surprise!) which are my black Leigh jeans, black cropped top, little ankle boots and  white wildlife scarf. My watch is Olivia Burton (you can find this in my what I got for Christmas post) and some crystal earring studs (also in my Christmas post).

Enjoy! Hope you are having a great day!

OOTD: A chilly trip to London Town!


Hello everybody, I know it has been quite a few days since my last post…sorry about that! My parter and I had to go on a last minute trip to London and I didn’t take my laptop (silly me!) But fear no more….I am back home and lots of posts will be coming your way! Anyway, below are a few pictures for my outfit of the day (from yesterday) in the erm……lovely hotel room. Where the carpet actually matches my skirt! We stayed at The Gloucester Place Hotel, and despite the pattern overload in the rooms, it was clean and tidy. And as a master deal finder, £74 in a superior room for bed and breakfast in Central London seemed a steal! I am normally used to paying £120-£170 per night, so we were very happy people!

Again, everything that I am wearing is from Topshop (surprise surprise…) and I just love them all. I have a real love for velvet at the moment, so when I spotted this skirt online, it was in my basket faster than light! It can be dressed up or down and it is right on-trend this season. I wore it with my favourite little black ankle boots (they have super cute little tassels on the front) and a embroidered off-white shirt. I love to wear shirts and blouses with everything as I think they look classy and sophisticated. My leather jacket is quite new and it is from the Topshop Boutique range, and when I saw that it was reduced as a seasonal offer from £165 to £125….well again… I had to have it! I feel that they are very versatile and can be worn anytime to achieve a fashionable look.

So, that is my outfit of the day :). Below, I though I would share a few of my snaps from my two day trip to London (sorry for the picture quality, I really do need to buy a good camera!) I actually think that London is my favourite place to go, I love everything about it. And at this time of year, we visited the amazing Southbank Christmas Markets….getting wrapped up (it was actually freeeezing!), mulled wine, German sausage, Crepes, and fairy lights galore! Yay!!

Another one of my favourite skirts at the moment from Topshop. Black velvet with lace detail, and It was that cold that I made a dash to H&M to buy this cute bobble hat.

Sparkles, sparkles….the most beautiful bauble I have ever seen in the Swarovski Crystal store….and no, I unfortunately didn’t buy it.
