Outfit: Textured Black

Happy Monday!!

A fitted top, structured skirt and minimalistic heels – sometimes you’ve just got to keep it classic and clean. The drop in the temperature has encouraged me to play with texture instead of colour. So today, I’m keeping it simple with a little black number. Couldn’t resist a hint of colour though, hence the nails. Bisous beauts, have a great day!

Outfit – Subtle Hues

img_533512With the turning of spring, both myself and El have been swapping our darker, more warmer garments for softer, more subtle shades. As promised here’s my new wrap dress from H&M. Wrap skirts and dresses have reappeared this spring and you probably will have noticed a few high-street stores endorsing them. I think they strike a perfect balance between playful and modest. There’s nothing like a little twist every so often.

When I was on holiday in St. Petersburg, Russia I came by Monton boutique. Monton is a very popular eastern European brand, that produces lovely smart casual pieces.

I couldn’t resist picking up this ‘palm’ print skirt. Although in these photos palm trees are hidden under my knit. The skirt is made from structured fabric, nipped at the waist. Playing on the burgundy notes I paired it with a thin knit from New Look. You can see skirt’s beautifully unusual pattern much better here:

I highly recommend taking a look at Monton’s website, montonfashion.com. They have loads more pieces that I’d love to order. For now I will wear my new skirt to work. Ta-Ta!

Love this drape dress by H&M. The cut, the colour and the price. At only £14.99 it’s a bargain, I’m so tempted to buy it in every colour…! I snapped it up about 3 weeks ago. It’s gorgeous on. I wore it the other day and the compliments wouldn’t stop rolling in. I’ll dress it up for you soon!

Told you you’d see another one! This was what I wore the other day before heading out for some drinks in town. I do love this skirt. Monochrome colour palettes are doing a lot for me at the moment, and Gingham print is currently all  the rage. I must say, I do think it’s quite flattering on the curves too…

Outfit – Hello Autumn

IMG_1946Hello 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 :)

This is what I wore yesterday. A casual tee, dressed up with a fitted midi and a pair of heels. And also my French Connection ‘Let It Be Rock’ studded leather coat. You might remember me lusting over it last year…!

IMG_1488I love the detail on the arms. I can’t lie; it’s quite heavy to wear. But it does the trick when I want to spruce up a simple outfit.

Outfit for the Office: Pink Peplum & Python

next peplum pink lace topI have to admit that I was looking at this Next lace peplum top for months, having tried it on a few times in the store in both colour combinations (also comes in navy); I have decided to take the plunge and part with £50. And oh my, this has been a very good investment!

next peplum pink lace top topshop midi skirtI absolutely adore the fit and this pale pink colour never fails to illuminate even the most tired face of mine. Paired it with a simple tight fitting midi skirt from Topshop, which is so soft and stretchy, perfect for the whole day of sitting by the desk!

Colour Blocking – Mini Neon Dress

Mini Neon Dress - TFNC Topshop London

Happy Monday!

Any one that has had the pleasure (and stress) of rummaging through my wardrobe will vouch for my fondness of colours. In my eyes, all things bright are beautiful.

Mini Neon Dress - TFNC Topshop London

A little under two weeks ago my amazing colleagues treated me to a birthday shopping trip in central London. After spending hours – which felt like minutes – getting lost in Topshop I decided on this mini number by London brand, TFNC.

Now I know the colours are a little on the bright side but I absolutely adore this piece! The focus on block colours meant that it was easier and best to keep my accessories to a minimum. A perfect time to wear those ASOS ‘Hollywood’ heels I bought a couple months ago. Likewise the feathered simplicity of my clutch bag and my timeless, gold Michael Kors piece helped add both texture and jazz.
