My top three designer fashion houses

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Ermmmm can we talk about this teddy coat of dreams please, this beaut is from Nasty Gal and it is genuinely the best thing I own at the minute. I actually chose this in a large which was such a good call, because I absolutely afore the way it looks oversized, plus babes its £50…and its crazy warm, honestly the best thing I own!! I am so happy that we are seeing checks move from winter into spring/summer this year. Although the winter style checks will change, we’ll be seeing loads more colour, which I am so excited about. These beaut trousers from Romwe are my transitional piece of choice, plus they are only £16, mad right? Then the ugly, ugly Dad trainers the Fila Disruptors, that I have not had off my feet since I bought them, they are so ugly but so amazing at the same time! I need them in all colours!! Coat & trousers are linked in the text above, and everything linked is also linked at the bottom of the post, for any of you gals who need to do a little shop :).

So I wanted to talk to you guys about my favourite designer fashion houses, and explain to you why I love them so much, although I don’t buy too much clothing from high end designers (we all have to buy food and live right) I love to take inspiration from their work, in terms of styling and finding similar pieces on the high street;

  1. Celine

Celine, Celine, Celine always my number one, honestly if I had all the money in the world, this would be the one and only place I would shop. I adore the androgynous suits, the oversized midi dresses and the pastels we are seeing this season. Give me a white Celine oversized suit any day and I would be a very happy girl!

  1. Isabel Marant

From the perfect leather skinnies to the most amazing double breasted checked blazer. Isabel Marant for me gives off a kind of carefree boho style, and don’t get me started on the knits. I find I spend a lot of my time looking for dupes on the high street. Apparently Isabel herself tries on her entire collection before it leaves the studio. I mean if it was your collection, and it was this good, you really would do the same.

  1. Jil Sander

Tailoring at its absolute best (and you guys know I love a good bit of tailoring) sleek, clean lines and mega figures flattering styles. I am in love with the camel trousers and the oversized white shirts. Plus you know that the fabric is so luxe, it will all feel so good on.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post babes and thank you for reading.

How blogging has improved my wardrobe

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

First of all my loves can I say that I am honestly so sick of winter, I long for the weather to be just that little bit warmer, where we can wear jackets rather than coats, and don’t have to be completely bundled up with scarfs and gloves. Until that day we have roll necks, which are an absolute staple in my wardrobe at the minute. This nude roll neck jumper from Shein is honestly so perfect, you guys may have realised that I love a ribbed jumper, and what I love about this version is it is thicker than any of my other jumpers, but still has that fitted silhouette that I love, also babes its only £18!! Next this beaut of a checked coat from Missy Empire, not going to lie, I’m completely obsessed with it! I love how oversized it is and the checked print is just perfect. Then finally the most perfect wide leg jeans from H&M, that look great with pretty much everything I own!

I guess I just wanted to talk to you babes about how blogging has improved my wardrobe, well thats a easy answer you say! You take more time to think about it?! And yes you are right, but its way more than that, for me being a blogger is a form of self expression, and something that gives me a platform to showcase my personal style and also my personality. As we all know bloggers today are their own brands, promoting their style and view on the world. I have spoken to you guys so many times about how I believe it is so important to have the most positive attitude to life, to your work and in terms of blogging to yourself and your body.

The great thing about taking the time to blog, is the time you get to research, whether that is fashion on the catwalks, magazines or taking inspiration from other bloggers. The latter is my absolute fav, blogging means that anybody from anywhere in the world, with any job and any body type can put their personal style out there. Blogging makes fashion more real, more relatable for every body type. So how does being a blogger improve my wardrobe? From taking more time to research the current trends and styles, to taking the time to engage with gorgeous REAL bloggers I can relate to, and take style tips from. This means I make far more informed decisions when shopping, which I think means I am more stylish people because of that :).

My take on the key trends for Spring

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

First of all babes, let’s talk about my complete obsession with layering. I mean it’s a good job that I am obsessed because it is absolutely freezing in the UK at the minute, and probably the only way I am able to survive. Let’s also talk about this gorgeous bargain of a midi skirt from Shein, I love how tight the pleats are and how full the skirt is. Plus, it’s an absolute steal at only £18.00!! I think for me this navy long coat, this denim jacket and these black leather boots are going to be items that are in my closet for a long time, staples that I will never get tired of.

Neutral suits

Double breasted in a beige/nude colour, slightly loose, man I want one so bad. This is the thing though, it’s the sort of thing that I dream of, but never find, unless its Celine, then I can’t afford it! One day I aim to have my own clothing line, and these wonderful design will no longer be a figment of my imagination!

Cowboy boots

Cowboy boots you say?? Not on your nelly, but trust me babes, it’s not full on cowboy, it’s a hint towards this this full-on style, with the chunky almost Cuban heels, the square toe and the embroidery details. I have my eye on the most perfect white pair from Mango

Belt bags

I have the most perfect version from COS, it’s a simple black leather version and it honestly does look so good over fitted blazers or coats. Or on the waist of your trousers with an oversized coat over the top. One tip I would say, I have seen so many garish versions out there, that it really is better to go for a simpler version that will stand the test of time in your wardrobe

Micro sunnies

I genuinely wasn’t sure about this trend when I saw it on the catwalk! Tiny sunglasses that barely cover your eyes, but now I love the cool 90’s vibe that it gives to any outfit. Also not going to lie they look cool perched on the end of your nose for a selfie (I know you’ve done it babes). There are also so many cool style around from the likes of Pretty Little Thing, ASOS and the star of the show Ebay.

My favourite coats for autumn/winter

I always get really excited when it gets to autumn/winter, and I can really start thinking about what winter coats I want to wear. Although when the cold weather drops I then realise how much I really need the warm weather again, can’t win lol!! However right now I’m still in the excitement period, so I just wanted to share with you guys some of, what I think, are the key styles of coats for this season. With of course, you know I’ll be getting one of each :);

  1. The checked maxi coat

TS07X17MBGE_Zoom_M_2 (1)

I loved the camel maxi coats we saw all over the high street last year, but this year its all about the checked maxi and I flipping love it, this version from Topshop is a little bit pricey at £125 but I honestly think that its worth it as you’ll we wearing it all season.

2. Coloured faux fur

TS07U08MDPK_Zoom_M_1

No surprise on the fur coats for this season, but what I love about them this year is it is all about the colours. So not your average browns and muted creams, its all about pinks, blues, yellows. I actually have the above pink version from Topshop, and its so insanely warm, plus I don’t think its a bad price at £79.

3. The aviator

2969069800_1_1_1

Again I know we saw this style last year, but I think last year veered more towards the faux suede style, where as this year we are looking more of the faux leather styles, which I love so much more. The distinction between the faux leather and the fur is so much easier to see, rather than with the faux suede (if you can understand what I am going on about!).  I love this version from Zara however there are so many cheaper versions on sites such as New Look, PLT and Missguided that are just as nice.

4. Borg/sherling coat

PIXIERED1_2048x2048

So to my last (and definitely not final, I could go on all day) pick of this seasons coats is the sherling/borg coat. I loveeeeee this style of coat, so warm and comfy, and again although there are lots of neutral coloured borg jackets around, I really am veering towards the coloured brighter versions. This red version from I am Gia a brand I have just discovered and am now obsessed with, is so perfect that I am definitely going to go out and buy this one, I love it!
