Aztec in Autumn

Autumn is well and truly in full swing and the time to bust out the coat has arrived. I often find shopping for the perfect style, colour and print difficult as not all of them look flattering. I got this aztec coat last year from Marks and Spencer after seeing the fab Fearne Cotton wearing it.

It’s pretty light weight yet holds the heat like you wouldn’t believe. The silk lining keeps me nice and warm while the bold print does all of the talking. It’s by far one of my favourite pieces from my wardrobe and I wear it constantly during the autumn/winter season.

I paired it with my new favourite Zara top and torn boyfriend jeans from Topshop. I kept all accessories and make up to a minimum as there is a lot going on with this look. Sometimes I just love laying off the jewellery and focusing on the clothes themselves. By the way, how cute is the pink pom pom?! I’m really into them at the minute. I love mixing and matching them with various bags.

I’ve had these tan cut out ankle boots for a few year’s now and rarely wear them. Every time I get them out I tell myself that I need to wear them more (another strange trait of mine) and I’ll make sure I do this season. They are a really comfortable shoe to wear as the heel isn’t that high and they are so easy to style, I loved pairing them with my jeans.

Happy Friday, lovelies! Hope you all have a great weekend, I’ll be spending mine indulging in some retail therapy!

Oversize It

You may remember that last week I attended a pretty perfect event in the Fitzwilliam Hotel held by the lovely ladies from Clarins. For the occasion, I wanted to remain comfortable but mix up my look a little. Therefore, it was an oversized H&M dress, Topshop ripped jeans and standard ankle boots from Miss Selfridge for me. It was a last minute and relaxed look for me. Often when I attend events I will have my look thought out the morning or even night before if I’m being good. I paired all of this with my edgy rose gold spike necklace (my favourite) from Topshop and my absolute go to novelty handbag from Accessorize which is now on sale for £7.50! A brilliant bargain for such a trend setting piece of accessory. I just love metallics, particularly the copper style.

For my make up I created a natural and soft smokey eye using my NARS palette, And God Created The Woman. As it was a beauty evening I thought that it was only natural to pay a little more attention to my face. You can’t really see it in the photo and I forgot to take that awkward up close selfie so I just thought that I’d describe it for you. 😉

I always find blogging that little more enjoyable when I’m playing Grey’s Anatomy in the background. Although I’m often distracted when Mc Dreamy makes an appearance! See you all in my next post.

Sunday Best

Slowly but surely the dark days are on the turn around and it will be time to break out our Spring looks. Feeling this way, I styled my Sunday best with a touch of colour incorporated. Last year when I was down in Dublin, I took a trip to Penny’s (the Irish version of Primark). They always have better stock than Belfast and you’re not going to see every Tom, Dick and Harry wearing the same item as you. It was there that I picked up this bold printed longline jacket. It’s quite lightweight and extremely comfortable to wear making it an essential piece to style.

Teaming it with my Topshop blouse and ripped boyfriend jeans, Parfois bag and Carvela wedges, I was weekend ready. The jacket has a soft print running throughout it making it look all the more pretty. I wanted to keep the base of my look simplistic with bold elements mixed in. I purchased this pretty flamingo cross body bag on the same trip to Dublin. Any time I’m in the capital, I always nip into Parfois. It’s the perfect purse friendly brand and they have a gorgeous selection of bags and accessories available.

I purchased these Carvela gladiator wedges around two years ago. Since then, I have not stopped wearing them. They are so comfortable to wear and go with every look within my wardrobe. I prefer a wedge look as I find them less painful, particularly if I’m planning on dancing the night away.

It has been a while since I last featured a full outfit look on the blog. Feels good to get back into the swing of it. I hope you all had a delightful weekend.
