Brilliant Burgundy

I'm not usually one for girly shoes, but when I saw these double strapped ballet pumps, I knew I had to have them! There I was, trying not to spend all my wages (unsuccessfully of course) when they popped up from the corner of my eye! 

Although the colour is more autumnal, these shoes will be great for all seasons (unless it snows...). My choice of clothing to pair with these feminine shoes would be with a pair of skinny jeans, and blazer for colder days or a skirt and t-shirt for the summer. 

Double Banded Ballerina Pumps- New Look 2013

Outfit Of The Day #3

The weather today was absolutely freezing (well it is England), so jeans were my first point of call. I'm not really one for a hoodie and jeans so I try to dress for both warmth and style. 

For this outfit I teamed my black studded Boohoo boots with my studded leather jacket to go with the 'rebel' trend this season, but also they're my favourite things at the moment so am always happy to wear them! While searching through my wardrobe I also trudged out my old purple jeans which add a bit of vibrant colour to my look. Finally, my shirt and collar chain (both from Primark) keep the look quite sophisticated whilst the chain adds that extra bit of bling.

Weekend Wishlist

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while; A-Levels are ridiculously time consuming! 
This post is simply a little wish list of clothes that have been catching my eye recently on various online retail websites which I love but cannot necessarily afford (sigh). 

Piece 1 is a brilliant Burgundy Tailored Blazer from Topshop. I love blazers; the way they fit in at the waist and can smarten up any pair of jeans, creating the ultimate 'boy meets girl' look. 

2 and 3 are both from one of my favourite brands: Jack Wills, a fairly high end store with quality tailored looks and logo printed t-shirts. These two wool blazers are something I can only dream of purchasing (due to a hefty price tag!) but are definitely a staple in any heritage lovers wardrobe. Both blazers are made in collaboration with British cloth manufacturer, Moon, meaning by purchasing the jacket you're also helping the British clothing industry (a valid reason for making yourself feel better after buying it?). 

High street and online retailer Urban Outfitters provide the masses with quirky alternative clothes in great designs. The 'Staring at Stars Lace Back Playsuit' (4) would be great to wear as casual daywear but could also be styled into the night with a leather jacket and boots with a wedged heel. Urban Outfitters describe it as 'folksy-inspired...featuring a...bold print' with colours making it perfect for autumn/winter. 

Finally, nĂºmero 5 is just a simple striped top that I have wanted for a while now as they go with a variety of things and are suitable for every season. This particular one is from River Island.
