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!

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.

I love seeing what people carry around on a daily basis,from what's in my bag videos to handbag essential blog posts, is it interesting for you guys or am I just nosey?

I thought I'd put up my version (the sorted out,tidy,recieptless version) usually my handbag is full of crap and sweet wrappers but these are my daily essentials that I couldn't be without.

Also how cool is this marble effect phone case? I love the case app website you can upload anything at all and have it printed on your phone,they make great christmas gifts for friends and family if you are stuck for ideas (yes its that time of the year) you can get 10% off using the code ' PWSTIH '

what do you keep in your bag?

This is the most colour I think i've ever worn,i've always been a black,white and grey kinda girl but to be honest i'm a bit sick of seeing it everywhere and on everyone,its good to introduce a bit of colour when you can,it certainly livens up my mood anyway.This beanie and jumper go perfectly together and add that bit of brightness to an otherwise dull outfit.
With that being said,I had to add black in a couple of places,one being this beautiful gilet I bought from H&M last year which still has the labels on and also these awesome heeled ankle boots which give me the much needed bit of height.

THE DUSTER

DUSTER COAT C/O NAANAA // JUMPER C/O CHOIES // NECKLACE C/O LYLALOVES // JEANS: TOPSHOP // WELLIES C/O SHOEZONE

Theres nothing more I love doing in the chilly months than to get all snuggly,don my wellies and take the dogs for a long walk.I must admit,I would usually throw on my trackies, a dirty old hoody and an old coat to do this but I thought why not go in style today.
I adore this duster coat and its autumnal plaid print, paired with the all black outfit and all black wellies it makes the perfect statement.

How would you style it?
