Outfit – Leopard Poncho

IMG_2078

Oh how I love animal print. I always find a way to work it into my look. Last weekend I was sporting this fabulous leopard print poncho from Oasis. It was a little too chilly to wear it alone so I threw Zara faux fur shawl over it. Cosy and warm!

Oasis flats

IMG_2168

A little birdie told me that Spring’s hottest shoes are flats with a little pointy toe and ankle straps. Oasis hit the nail on the head with these cute pairs. They are such great fit I just had to get myself both colour combinations. This elegant shape will work well with both the casual outfits and pretty dresses. I have to say I am getting used to the idea of wearing a flat shoe, but when they are so cute, who can resist?

This time last year

IMG_4730

This time last year I have debuted my lovely Valentino dress here. I remember this day clearly, prancing around in Spring sun. A year later I am still in love with it as much as when I first tried it on. It’s a shame I do not have enough fancy occasions to wear it to!

I have however made the most of these blue sandals from Dune. I saw that they extended Hydro line with iridescent pink and gold versions… Very tempting!

New Season Shopping

Looks like we are on a steam train heading for Spring! Yay, finally! I cannot wait for the day that I can vacuum pack away all my coats and knits. Spring is a great time to add a few new items to your closet, updating it for the next season. ASOS is my ultimate favourite online store, because they make whole experience smooth and safe. I am definitely guilty of browsing their site a little bit every few days. Here is what you will find in my ‘saved items’…I might just press the order button…

Half Moon Magic by Le Specs

IMG_2145

You know I have been into cat eye sunglasses for a while now, and since my last post about it, i purchased this lovely pair from Le Specs. This Australian brand was founded in the 70’s and relaunched in 2006 with designs inspired by street style in New York and Stockholm. Le Specs sunnies have taken industry by storm and gained a massive celebrity and blogger following. But i can see why, these sunglasses are so much fun, well made and offer great style at very affordable price. Slightly on the large size, super black, polished acetate frame adds a lovely lux touch to any outfit. Now all I need is for sun to come out so I can take these babies out to play!

You can see their whole range out here: lespecs.com
Available in UK through ASOS and Net-a-Porter.

Speaking of coats, here is what I wore the other weekend. Ah how i love my rabbit fur coat! You first saw it here and now its back in a more casual look. Paired with my new Lacoste trainers it’s perfect for running errands on a frosty Sat morning.

PelloBello Fuzzies

pellobello_fur_jacket

I have seen a number of fashion bloggers wear these PelloBello fuzzy beauties. Aren’t they gorgeous?
It’s hard to find a good furry coat for a good price and these seem to tick both boxes. PelloBello coats are made to order and shipped from Sweden. What’s even better is that they come in short and long versions plus a lovely colour palate to choose from.

New in my Closet – Lacoste Trainers

IMG_2118A year ago you would have not seen me wearing trainers outside of the gym, but it must have been Adiyam’s influence and I have finally given in for this cute Lacoste pair. They have this lovely white leather so don’t feel sporty at all. Can’t wait for summer so I can pair these babies with denim shorts! Find them here

Today we simply want to thank you for continuing to follow our journey into bloggersphere. We’re looking forward to keeping you entertained this year, the next and hopefully those that will follow after that.

As always, all the best.

What I wore to Office Christmas party

Unlike a lot of my colleagues I do love an office christmas party! It’s a perfect time to mingle with your friends, have a few drinks and perhaps talk to new faces that you’ve never had a chance to speak to. This year we had our Christmas get-together in a pub by Tower Bridge, so perhaps i was a little over dressed, but hey, it’s that time of year when you can get away with it!

zara-red-trf-dress

My Zara TRF dress with layered skirt is still available online, but now only in navy, which i think still makes it a banger of a dress!
