I Am Wearing : 

Checked Wool Coat - Peridot London c/o Tags On
Sequinned T-Shirt - Glamorous c/o Asos Fashion Finder
Denim Shirt - Primark
BoyFriend Jeans - NewLook
Glitter Heels - c/o Deichmanns
Wide Brim Fedora - H&M

This is look 3 from my Asos Fashion Finder style a sequinned t-shirt 5 ways challenge.

I opted for a layered look - since it has turned super cold in the UK I was happy with this decision!!

Working sequins into your day look is a festive season must! In fact I have been happily working sequins into my day wear all year long and it has been well received by you guys and the people I meet. For some reason sequins seem to make people happy! 

A little sparkle on a dull day goes a long way.

(you can totally use that quote - I think I might make it my new mantra! LOL)

Here's to the freakin weekend friends!

I Am Wearing : 

Pink Coat - c/o OASAP
Roll Neck Jumper - Zara
Ripped Knee Jeans - Asos
New Balance Trainers - TK Maxx
Bobble Hat - Primark

Matching my laces to my coat and my lipstick is just how I roll!

Brrrr it's cold in London.

I have been wearing a lot of comfy and cozy outfits recently and I feel like its time to make more of an effort to look sharper but I am just feeling so chilled I cant be bothered to make any effort. I am such a mood dresser - maybe the festive season will bring the snazzy dresser out in me!

Until then, it's oversized knits and trainers for me ;-)

Lux Fur Gilet

I Am Wearing : 
Faux fur Gilet - c/o BooHoo
Roll Neck Jumper - Zara
Knee Patch Jeans - H&M
Pointy Slip Ons - Primark

It is finally cold enough to wear our faux furs again girls!

This faux fur is a new addition to my wardrobe and boy is it a gooden! The fur is a great imitation and does the whole moving in the breeze thing that a good shaggy coat should. Also I love the slight cap - power shoulder detail that gives the gilet that little something extra and goes a long way to making it look like a far more expensive jacket than the mere £40 it really cost.

This is not the only fur I have welcomed into my wardrobe this week ( I happened to purchase another beauty from Primark, watch this space!)

Hope you are all keeping warm!

I Am wearing :

Blue Fedora - H&M
Grey Roll Neck - Zara
Fur Gilet - H&M
Camo Jeans - Internacionale
Snakeskin Heels - c/o Next 
Handbag - OASAP
Lips - MAC Neon Orange

Move over leopard print, snakeskin is the new animal print for this season and I like it!

I fell head over snakeskin heels the moment I laid eyes on these beautiful shoes at the Next AW press day a couple of months back - I have been counting down the days till they came into store. The POP of orange is a perfect way to brighten up any outfit - this time i decided to match my shoes to my lipstick wearing MAC neon orange on my lips.

My mission now is to introduce more snake prints into my wardrobe!

Will you be trying out the snakeskin mini trend this winter?
