Grey on Grey – The return of the sleeveless Jacket

Grey on Grey cover

This is the third outing of this sleeveless grey coat on the blog, and I’m sure it won’t be the last! It’s the first time I’ve managed to pair it with items that aren’t maroon, which is a minor achievement in itself. That being said, I’ve shunned colours completely and gone for a grey and black palette for a dreary spring day. Continue reading “Grey on Grey – The return of the sleeveless Jacket”

A Big Jumper and A Small Skirt

I’m genuinely not sure what was going through my head when I selected this outfit, but I actually really like it. I think the random combination is just on the border of my comfort zone, and lately I’ve been quite pleased with those slightly-more-eccentric outfit choices. The colour palette is still quite simple, which helps keep some level of cohesion. Each aspect of the outfit is quite simple too, it’s together that they’re a bit more bizarre!  Continue reading “A Big Jumper and A Small Skirt”

Butterfly Dress and Denim Jacket – Spring is on its way!

I’d forgotten how much I like this butterfly print dress I picked up last summer. I remember being undecided about which size to get, being a bit in between sizes when I tried it on. I eventually went for the smaller of the two, and I’m really glad I did. After bursting out of another dress last week, I’ve been feeling a bit low in terms of my size, health and fitness in general. It’s definitely been a good start to the week to be able to fit into a smaller dress and being reminded that a broken zip doesn’t necessarily indicate an enormous size gain.

Cosy Knit and Black

On a dreary Monday after a tiring weekend, I honestly didn’t have the energy to try and put together a particularly snazzy outfit. My default throughout the winter months has been a chunky, cosy knit and simple separates. I’ve gone for this tried and tested combo here, with an old roll neck jumper I acquired from a previous house share, trusty black skinnies and an age old wool coat.

More Over The Knee Boots


Not long ago, I purchased my first pair of over-the-knee boots from New Look for a mere 20 pounds in the Christmas sales. I loved them so much, I immediately ordered another pair from ASOS, this time in black and made from real suede. This pair are ever-so-slightly shorter than the burgundy pair, and they’re not split at the back, so they’re more of a snug fit over my knee.  Continue reading “More Over The Knee Boots”

Over The Knee Boots

Over-The-Knee boots are all over the place at the moment, and I’ve wanted a pair for ages, but not wanted to shell out hundreds of pounds for a trend that I wasn’t sure would suit me, or be particularly easy to wear. When I saw this suedette pair in New Look on sale for just £20, I couldn’t resist snapping them up! Burgundy is one of my favourite colours for clothing and accessories so adding more to my wardrobe is a no – brainer.
