#196 Coat Season

I am now 21 and feel like I should start looking a bit more older as I have such a baby face so my style is still the same but I am more about quality over quantity, not that I wasn’t before but always used to look for a big bargain but now spending a few extra pounds does not hurt. If you know it is going to last you a very long time and it will have a value in the future.
Coats are going to be in season all the time that is why you should always have a cute and unique looking coat/jacket. Here are a few of my coats that I have that will be worn until the sun starts shining for longer than 8 hours out here in the UK. They are more structured, over sized and suited to my size as I am quite petite this is what I believe looks good.

The first jacket is from Topshop and I fell in love with it when I started to see quite a few celebrities in the over sized coats so I was inspired by them but come on who isn’t now. Kim Kardashian is one lady who got me hooked on it I am not a fan of her but of her style I am proud to say YES. It’s priced at £96 and is not even on their website anymore or in store I actually bought it with the £300 vouchers I won a few months ago, it is such a plain and chic coat and the camel colour is stunning on all skin tones. The second coat is from Zara priced at £129 and was a present for my 21st birthday and I have been showing this coat love every time I walked into a Zara and my beautiful amazing mother surprised me with it and I was just speechless, I have never imagined myself in a blue coat but it just has this soft look and very baby doll that I liked and it is not common as well that is a motto of mine. Last but not least, only bought this jacket yesterday and it’s on the blog the next day ha ha this heavy crepe biker jacket is so bright that you may need to get your sunglasses out it is the brightest colour in my wardrobe at the moment but I am in love. It was originally £125 then went down to £60 for boxing day sales but I had vouchers and the amazing student discount which *DRUMROLL* broke it down to £31.50 amazing.

I drag on a bit I know but at least you finished your tea or your Friday night glass of wine to a nice read from my blog, I will be posting more quite often I am hoping and you will be seeing many blog posts of me in my coats over the new year. Hope all of my amazing readers had an amazing Christmas and have a great new year and spend it with the ones you love most and appreciate them and the fact you are able to see the end of 2013 and the start of a whole new chapter.

1. Oasis White Coat £60
2. Mango Navy Blue Oversized Wool-Blend Coat £60
3. Jisgaw Baby Blue Melton Coat £189
4. French Connection Camel Lisettta Coat £120
5. Topshop Lime Wool Boyfriend Coat £98

#195 Grunged Up’

Afternoon, I haven’t done an outfit of the day in a while this one is a bit strange due to the weather you were probably expecting to be in something summer looking but really I am ready for winter and all the layering up. Winter needs to run on over because I am ready by far. Everything that I am wearing is from Zara and bought in Valencia besides the wet look leggings from Topshop petite. This look is very casual and simple look and each item can be purchased at any store literally. I have done another styling set that is related to this theme and colour circle but is a bit more smart and office wear, I hope you enjoy it tell me your thoughts and views. Enjoy the rest of your day xo

 Tee: Zara // Leggings: Topshop Petite // Sandals: Zara // Bag: Zara

#193 Spanish Purchases

1st Image – I know you can’t see much besides the colours and prints but all will be worn in time so stay posted. Firstly is a navy blue dress that has a peplum at the bottom of the dress which is such a different and classy design only for 5 euros it will be so nice for a dinner out. The print tee from Zara priced at 3 euros is just something casual to snap up with some leggings or jeans if I am going to uni or a quick shop, it would really nice with a winter hat and scarf as well. This beautiful patterned blazer is one of my buys while I was on holiday as was originally 80 euros and went down to 19 euros, it is such a big bargain and an amazing statement piece to wear when going out for an event.

This knitty jumper on the far left was 49 EUROS from h+M expensive you think but Miss Desriee got it for 7 euros I was over the moon and was thinking how does my eyes attract such good pieces and bargains lol. It is a long knit jumper which so many holes but would look so cute with a cami dress underneath some big chunky jewellery and thigh knee boots. The floral summer coloured blazer is from Zara from the S/S 13′ collection who says you can’t style something like this winter and stand out. This was originally 75 euros and went down to 19 euros the same as the blue + white blazer, I just love my statement piece items a lot of people may be scared thinking you will have to wait to wear it a few months later but no no its not the case. I always make sure that I have complete different looks when wearing my statement piece items so just change it up with jewellery, hair or even just shoes alone. This gorgeous blouse from Lefties was on 3 euros and is just so cute and something simple to wear for an event most of these clothes are ha ha but it just had that versace look so had to purchase it with a click.

The white pieces, white is something that celebrities, stylists, fashion lovers have been crazy off their heads about this year and I had to add to my collection with this cute bohemian dress from Zara that my mummy actually picked out its so girly in a different way which is not me but I did end up liking it funnily enough it was priced at 12 euros. The two jumpers do look alike but one is very oversized and big the other is a cropped jumper with a bow at the back with the skin showing off which I thought would be nice for winter with a white vest underneath.
Thats the end of my clothing purchases I hope you liked what I bought and if you have any questions just comment below xo

#192 Bikini Wear

 

I am back in London and I actually missed the rain funny enough, think the sunshine was a bit too much ha ha. I have come back with a few snaps of the bikinis that I wore on holiday.

The first bikini set ” Blue Jewels” thats what I named it, the bikini top is from H+M priced at £7 as soon as I saw it I had to purchase it I just love the embelishment detail so much. The bottoms are from a store in Madrid that I got a few years back.I felt really comfortable with the top but the bottoms aren’t my favourite as I prefer high waisted bottoms. ( 7/10 )

The second is the monkini that was only 3 euros from 24 euros in some random store at the Bonaire Outlet and was very bright especially for me as I love bold colours but the design of the monkini was brilliant as it is well shaped for all body shapes, it has two strings at the back also for you to tie if you want to suck in a bit it definitely made me feel as if I had a bit of shape. ( 8/10 )

The last bikini was my all time favourite which is from the UK store Urban Outfitters which have so many quirky items that are so fashionable make sure you check the stuff out especially the sale I always find some good bargains there. This is priced at £32.00 for the set and unfortunately it can not be sold separately but I think it’s actually better as a set. I loved everything about this it held me in very well and the high waisted pants fit perfectly no joke. If your going abroad I would recommend this. ( 10/10 )
