Happy Humpday sexypants! Hows it hanging?
I have taken a slight social media/blogging hiatus recently and have been spending my time focusing on eating more food, not going to the gym aaaaaaaand drumroll please,..
This outfit should come as no surprise to you, if you know me, you know I have long been a huge fan of over the knee boots. In fact I bought my first pair 7 years ago, and I still have them! They are black, leather and have a wedge heel. I cant get myself to throw them away, because I havent seen anything like them again.
So you know when you buy a gorgeous light blue turquoise coat, and like all your coat goals come together at once? And then, you know when you’re wandering around east London after a fabulous brunch with Simply Argan, Lauren from SaharaSplash sees a wall that totes matches your coat color?
Oh sweet holy jam! It’s like a match made in heaven!
but it’s also freezing and windy and like NOT ideal for outfit pics. I believe my face below just says it all.
This is also the day I decided to take these beautiful puppies for a walk. I mean just look at the shoes..
I SAID LOOK!
Now excuse me while I casually pretend to be knocking on this door.
Nobody’s home but YEAY for this wall!
Most of my look is last years bargains so incase you wanna shop it, I’ve added some similar looking stuff below.
One thing I LOVE about the festive season is how everybody seems to come together and agree that this is the season you make a little effort when it comes to the parties. This is the season to bring your A Game. It’s one of the tings about this season I adore the most. Nice shirts, sparkling dresses, beautiful shoes, heavy fabrics, champagne flowing and Christmas songs pumping out of the stereo, enveloping you like a warm hug.
The one thing I don’t love so much during this season is walking home from a Christmas party, in the cold, in heels. Like is it just me, or do all girls turn into some from of deformed zombie on their walk home? Oh maybe that is just me.. Self highfive! So I have made it my mission to find flat shoes that can take you from the office, to Friday drinks in 0 point split seconds and will easily let you dance your heart out way in the early hours of Saturday mornings or even Sunday mornings! And ones that are priced in way you might even find them underneath the xmas tree 😉
Not gonna lie, I have already clicked a few of these home… Dont judge me! Christmas comes early to girls how cant wait..
Ok so lets try this posting thing again shall we?
On of the hot trends of this season (for like the last 3 years) has been denim jackets with borg lining. I have probably been to every high street store in London, and browsed every online store, that ships to the UK in the search for the perfect one. I wanted one that wasn’t too short, baggy but yet fitted. One I could squeeze a knitted jumper under if it gets too cold. And one that had a stone washed colour. Huge bonus would also be if it didn’t end up costing me an arm and a leg. So you know, not asking for much!
I found this little beauty at River Island, who is currently, in my option SMASHING it this season with their collection. This jacket doesnt have a full borg lining, its pretty much just what you see in the picture and that suits me perfectly! I also gotta add that NewLook is doing a BEAUT of a denim jacket which was also high on my list… I just cant justify having two… or can I?
I paired it with this super versatile and work friendly black swing dress from ASOS which has become a staple in my wardrobe and can be dressed or dressed up, as well as my trusty FjallRaven backpack (which every scandinavian, and wannabe scandinavian should own) and some beat up old Nike Roshe. Keeping it casual on a whole new level! I wore this outfit to work, and it was like the perfect work attire. You just cant beat a LBD!
The jacket you can find here, and some similar versions from New Look here (which to be honest was basically in my hand on the way to the till as its got lining all the way through!) and, Topshop here . The black swing dress is still available from ASOS here
