Next Camel Coat

In my last OOTD post (you can read it here) I mentioned how I have been going back to more neutral tones with my looks. It’s so refreshing taking my outfits back to basics and this Next Camel Coat is no exception. I’ve never owned a coat like this before; it seems to be very on trend for us bloggers! So I was very excited to style it with some of my keys pieces from my wardrobe and channel my best Autumn appropriate lady.

Along with the coat, these fab monk shoes also from Next are new additions to my A/W wardrobe. I’ve been wanting to branch out with my footwear and try a more preppy style. When it comes to shoes, I need a supportive sole as I can’t wear a completely flat pair. I have the worst feet that are extremely high maintenance so proper shoe choices are a must for me. These black patent beauties are by far thee most comfortable shoes ever. They are the perfect flats for Autumn and are easily styled. I opted for my trusty Zara bag to complete my prep based look.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the letter ‘N’ prop?! Haha. The fabulous Titanic Quarter is my new favourite location for shooting looks. The architecture is out of this world and my obsession with water based details continues. I also wore my Zara biker jeans and monochrome top to complete the look.

I paired my favourite necklaces with my simplistic look. My treasured Emozioni coin pendent and Pandora longline necklace is a classic combination and personal favourite of mine. The feather piece is from their rose gold collection, it’s my go to necklace at the moment. What I love most about this coat is the strong structure. It is beautifully chic and a popular coat during the autumn/winter months. I’m planning on bringing this beauty with me to Berlin in a few week’s. I’m excited to style it using various colors and prints, I think a dark demin shirt would look amazing under it for a more street style look.

(If you order before 12pm midnight, you can order free to your local store for collection. Visit Next online for more details… Happy Shopping!)

What do you lovelies think of the camel coat trend then?! Sometimes when piece’s are a huge favourite within the blogging scene I tend to stray away, but this one I’ve given into!

Less Is More

I tend to go through phases with my accessories, jewellery in particular. Sometimes I love making a bold statement with an embellished necklace, boyfriend watch or stacked rings. However, over the past few months I have fallen in love again with the more delicate look. I love wearing simple rings, a single watch or a miminal necklace. I have never been one for wearing big earrings, they don’t suit me and I just don’t enjoy having them weigh me down.

I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful pair of rose gold diamond earrings from Emozioni (thank you!) in the post. You all know how obsessed I am with everything rose gold, add a touch of sparkle to them and I’m in heaven. I was so excited about these little beauties and I have honestly not stopped wearing them.

The earrings were launched towards the end of last year. They are incredibly light weight (which I love) and they make a nice change when I don’t feel like wearing a necklace. They’re just so pretty!

They make a simplistic statement without looking too much. It’s always nice to try a new look and your accessories are always the easiest way to start. If you’re in the mood for a treat to help banish those January blues, then I suggest starting with some earrings.

Happy Wednesday, lovelies. Hope you’re all having a great week. Is it just me or is January flying in?

My Week on Instagram ♥

Is it just me or are the months flying in? Halloween seems like years ago and Christmas is sneaking up. Not that I’m complaining or anything. The Christmas Markets have arrived here in Belfast and I am extremely excited to visit them. Each year I often find a beautiful vintage bag or purse and indulge in some seriously sweet treats. The atmosphere is always great and makes the countdown to the festive season all the more enjoyable.

I just noticed that this week’s Instagram
images are heavily fashion influenced. The AW14 season is in full swing and I am absolutely loving it. By the way, can I just say how excited I am to have finally got my manicured hands on Diane Von Furstenberg’s latest book, ‘The Woman I Wanted To Be’. I tend to hibernate during the Winter months so I am looking forward to ready this little beauty by the fire. Does this make me sound pathetic?

Also included in this week’s post, a little California dreaming, hairstyle inspiration, indulging in some seriously mouthwatering food, enjoying a Kate Spade Saturday and getting into the Christmas spirit.

My Hot Diamonds || Emozioni

Thursday was such an amazing day for me. I received some amazing news, I went on a mini shopping spree, I closed the door with some personal obstacles and I came home to this spectacular rose gold Emozioni necklace. ♥

image

I love when you feel so good about yourself – you feel like you can take on the world. I’ve been working extremely hard building up my journalism and blogging career. So, to receive this breathtaking gift from the lovely folks at Emozioni, was just the most perfect and extremely stylish icing on the cake.

A few months ago, you may remember that I was invited to the delicious Coppi restaurant in St Anne’s Square to attend an intimate dinner held by the lovely Paul & Sarah for Emozioni jewellery. They talked us through each piece of jewellery while we ate mouthwatering tapas food and sipped on some sweet beverages. Throughout the evening, we tried on every piece available and we were lucky enough to take home a bracelet of our choice.

As soon as I opened my gift on Thursday, I literally squealed. I could not believe my luck at becoming the proud owner of this fabulous rose gold and black diamond necklace. My love for all things jewellery has now taken an all new high. I have a large collection of statement necklaces, but none quite like this one. It’s such a delicate piece while remaining bold enough to make a very breathtaking statement.

I decided to showcase my new baby at a family BBQ. The weather was sweet and I had styled up a very cute but casual outfit. It needed a beautiful final touch, and my necklace was it. I just love the combination of colours used in my new favourite accessory. The rose gold pops perfectly against the pretty black diamonds. The design of the coin helps add a touch of movement to it and the Hot Diamonds brands around the keeper gives off quite a Roman Numeral effect. I honestly cannot stop staring at it, it’s the perfect gift!

I just want to say a massive thank you to Paul and the fabulous Emozioni for sending me this little beauty. I am extremely thankful!

I hope you all had a brilliant weekend. ♥

Summer Statements

I’m all about statement pieces no matter what season we’re in. Although during summer, I love playing with my accessories that little bit more. This week, I changed my nail colour so I’ve been eager to make a bigger and bolder statement.

I’m such a huge fan of statement necklaces. I have a massive collection of different styles. More recently I started to invest in cocktail rings and a some Michael Kors arm candy. For today’s post, I’ve put together a collection of my most worn and favourite ‘go to’ accessories. With the sun making a big appearance over the last week or two, I am constantly reaching for my cute Warehouse sunglasses. Yesterday I picked up my chic monochrome French Connection glasses that I’m in love with. I look like quite the chic, but, I’m absolutely loving them! ♥
