The other day, for an afternoon amble with El in Hampstead, I swapped my staple look of a skirt and pumps for a pair of worn converse and tattered, although new pair of skinnies. Wearing a knit that was two sizes up helped add to that extra slouchy look. Dress down days – gotta love ’em. They get two thumbs up from me.
We took a stroll, did a little bit of shopping and then had a sensible afternoon coffee. In one of the shops (Whistles I think), I saw this gorgeous necklace with an inscription that caught my eye…
“He who holds the key can unlock my heart.”
How quaint; how cute.
Although I can’t exactly say the same for my chucks… oops! Err, I think I need to invest in a new pair sometime soon.
Hope you beauts have a lovely day

We all like a day off every so often, even a workaholic like me. On those days you’ll find me wearing a whole lot of menswear. It’s probably the secret tomboy in me. Don’t believe me? I should pull out some old photos. Actually, on second thoughts, I probably shouldn’t…!!
Ooh and can I add, how comfy these Hi Dunks are?! They are totally dreamy, and perfect for this mucky weather us Brits are facing at the mo. I definitely recommend them to anyone who is either intrigued or sitting on the fence!
I’ll be back in glad rags soon. Promise!

Hello Autumn. My precious. My favourite season of the year.
Yesterday I said that I’d wear my new boots for you; what do you think? I’m so in love with them and, bonus, the heel is one I could easily spend the whole day in. I’ve paired them with my new Angora jumper which is a slight pain in the bum. It sheds like crazy! I’m looking for a solution so if any of you know how to stop fluffy jumpers from shedding, please share! Also, there’s nothing like a couple of gold accessories to add a little bit of glitz and glamour :)

Finding a good, oversize clutch can be tricky business but this clutch is beautiful. I love the simplicity of it.

Could they have got it any more right? Im loving the monochrome theme that Zara have incorporated into this Decembers look-book. They have quite a few standout pieces, but I can really imagine myself wearing these ones below. Check out the shoes! How cute are they?!

It looks like Kurt is also getting involved in this season’s oversize trend. I can just picture how amazing these shoes would look worn with wide leg trousers and an oversize coat or, equally, with a silhouette dress. Such wedge perfection. I love the crisp, white look too!

Most girls I know are pretty scared of sporting oversized items and I don’t exactly find this shocking. So I’m pretty sure that like me you’re feeling a little thankfully for the rise of the oversize this fall.

If I had to chose three words that best illustrated what ‘oversized fashion’ is all about, I’d chose big, bold and bossy. To help maintain that trendy look this fall, I really do suggest that this is the one trend you don’t ignore! For one, it’s really comfortable, looks fierce and, bonus,it’ll keep you warm.We’re not just talking about clothes here to; ‘oversize’ is taking over scarfs, jewellry and bags too.
Choosing the right items to pair your oversize garments will help accentuate your look. A word of advice; always think opposite. Oversize trousers & fitted top. Oversized top & either a pencil skirt or tailored trousers (ankle trousers too!). You get the idea. Remember, what you want to do is compliment the other section. Now go on, try something new today.
