DUSTER COAT: YOINS // SHIRT: SHEINSIDE // LEGGINGS: LEGGSINGTON // HEELS: MISSGUIDED // 
WATCH: NIXON

I know what you're thinking...Kate,you look like a vicar ready for a night out! I agree,however I ADORE this outfit,its not anything I would usually wear but I thought I'd get out of my comfort zone and try something a tad different.
I haven't taken these leggings off since they came through the post,they are surprisingly warm so at the moment I'm pairing them with everything I own.
This duster coat is also a new addition to my wardrobe,a basic,it can be worn with anything,it's great for layering  and it just adds that extra bit of warmth.

Hope you are all getting in the Christmas spirit and had a lovely weekend

P.S You can grab a cheeky 15% off from Leggsington using the code 'kate'

TOMBOY

BEANIE: CARHARTT // JUMPER: CHARITY SHOP // SKIRT: HYBRID // ADIDAS GAZELLE: SOJEANS

I think its fair to say that its a tad too chilly to wear this skirt but I had a vision as soon as it popped through my letter box and that vision was this outfit.
I'm not entirely sure I can pull off the whole 'smart skirt with tomboy accents' style but I had a go and i'm quite fond of the outcome.I didn't want to wear it like the typical girl would (high heels and a crop top) because lets face it,its far too bloody cold and would be an unrealistic outfit for the day time!!

How would you style it?

THE CAMEL COAT

COAT: RARE LONDON // SNOOD : FUNI // JEANS: TOPSHOP// JUMPER: CHOIES // NEW BLANACE: ASOS

The Camel coloured trend has been around for quite a while now and as usual I'm the last to jump on the band wagon,however,I'm not a fan of the bog standard, structured trench style as they tend to drown my figure, so when I came across this lovely duffle style coatigan my eyes lit up.Its super warm and cosy but is also thin enough to layer underneath another coat if required.

As for the rest of the outfit,I kept it really casual,threw on my trustworthy jamie jeans,a snuggly snood and my extremely comfy New balance and I was good to go.

THE ACNE-ALIKE

You saw it here first,the best Acne jacket dupe EVER!!
 I was amazed when I tore open this baby from Sheinside,If i'm being completely honest I wasn't expecting anything great,however I was gobsmacked at the quality and although the leather is faux it feels like the real deal and has a beautiful matte finish,massive thumbs up from me.

Another item I'm currently loving are my new red stained ankle boots,they look so expensive but were a mere £24.95.I love how they go with any outfit and give me an extra bit of very much needed height!

How would you style the Jacket & boots?

SCARF: CHOIES // JUMPER: CHOIES // LEGGINGS: LEGGSINGTON // BOOTS: DR MARTENS

I chucked this outfit on today to run some errands and by accident it ended being a very warm and comfy ensemble.
I've always wanted some leather leggings but find it hard to come across ones that aren't cheap looking and shiny,these however are awesome,they have a lovely matt finish and are super snug,I can see them being a staple in my wardrobe from now on.
I paired them with this snuggly grey long jumper,my new favourite,super soft scarf and my trustworthy weather appropriate Docs.

Hope you are all having a great week

WINTER EVENINGS

I don't know about you guys but I find going out at night in the winter a complete and utter ball ache,it's cold,it's drizzly,it makes your hair stand on end and all in all it's a bloody bore.However,I tried to style an outfit for a 'winter night out' it's smart, yet casual with a hint of 'I promise I tried'.

I love how boyfriend jeans look with a simple pair of black heels, they add an instant oomph and take away the tomboy edge, as does the massive whisky bottle tag style choker and the pretty dainty rings which by the way I am LOVING!!!

I think its a pretty acceptable outfit for drinks and some food? or am I just hiding the fact that these are my slobbing around clothes and by adding some lovely black shoes and some bling I can venture out into the nightlife?

What do you wear out on a cold winter evening?

Much Love

NEW IN : FEATHER PHONE CASE

PHONE CASE C/O ICONEMESIS // LEATHER BOOK: TKMAXX // NAIL POLISH: MAYBELLINE 'BURGANDY KISS'

You may of guessed by now that i'm a sucker for a new phone case,I get bored easily so like to switch around from case to case,this is my current favourite,the print is so pretty and intricate i'm absolutely sure it will be staying on my phone for the next few weeks.

Two other things i'm loving at the moment is this vampy nail polish by maybelline,its such a gorgeous deep blood red/black colour and an awesome dupe for Essie's 'Wicked' if you're looking for something a fraction of the price. Secondly,I've been meaning to mention for a while,TKMAXX's notebooks!!!! Oh my goodness they are beautiful,this one is super soft italian leather,i'm so in love with it,next time you are walking past pop in and pick one up!

STAND OUT

I've neglected the blog over this past week due to a horrible cold and feeling like death warmed up so apologies for the lack of posts.

However I'm back in the swing of things with a cosy outfit. I've been dying to receive these new gazelles in the post and I couldn't be happier with them, they give every outfit that sporty/street style touch but are quite feminine at the same time as they are very slimline.
The vest and beanie are also new additions to my wardrobe,I love a good basketball-esque jersey,this one works perfectly with the sporty vibe i'm going for,I will be wearing it layered over a long sleeved black T-shirt as the days get chillier.

Much Love
