Sleeveless Turtle Neck Jumper – c/o Primark

White Pleather Skirt – Zara

Nude Sandals – Whistles

This was such a cute morning taking photos! As Laura and I are snapping away this gorgeous white cat wants to get in on the action! If you check out Laura’s Christmas Jumper post you will see more pictures.

This sleeveless jumper from Primark is the best layering tool! It’s not quite a dress due to the slits on either side but can be worn over anything!

Oversized Jumper – c/o Primark

Burgundy Boots – Zara

Black Studded Bag – c/o Reiss

When I received my £100 gift card from Primark at their SS15 press day, I immediately thought ‘KNITWEAR!’. I will be spending Christmas with my family in Cornwall and will obviously have to embrace the cold, wet, windy weathers during our post Christmas Lunch clifftop walks. This jumper is so perfect for that! Not only is it warm and snuggly, but it has a turtle neck (my favourite Winter trend!). Primark really do have a great Winter selection of warm clothes so it’s definitely worth checking out! If you take a look on their website they show you previews of items coming into store as well as ways of styling (I currently have a feature on there).

I’m also thinking of possibly vlogging my Christmas hols so you can see everything we get up to in Cornwall!

I had so much fun christmas shooting with Flossy Shoes! As I’m sure you know by now, I am good friends with Laura (The Fashion Wonderland) and Jess (Copper Garden) and as Laura put it, we are like the Powerpuff Girls of Blogging! It was the perfect shoot for us as Flossy’s wanted to shoot friends having a good time together in their plimsols. Southbank Christmas market was the best location for this, and it meant we could enjoy some hot mulled wine :)… and Laura bought £10 worth of fudge… and ate it all there and then! It’s always a pleasure shooting with Sophie too!

I absolutely loved the Primark Spring 15 Press day! It was like going down the rabbit hole into a wonderland full of beautiful things! I’m incredibly excited by their festival wear having already bought my ticket for Glastonbury. Laura and I were just in awe of the shoe tower, particularly the various metallic sliders coming out next year. We also love a bit of homeware shopping, so when we were told we could get a sample of their new bedding, we jumped at the chance!

Also at the end of the viewing we were given a gift card worth £100 so expect a lot of posts with Primark clothes!

I had a wonderful time being shown around the Urban Outfitters SS15 Press Day! It was particularly interesting hearing about the inspiration behind it and their ‘detox’ trend producing the clean silhouettes and neutral colour palettes pictured above. To go with this theme they were promoting vegan leather products and handing out samples of vegetable cleansing drinks that will soon be available to purchase in store. Something that has me especially excited for SS15 is the addition of Calvin Klein to the Urban Outfitters Brands section! It was also music to my ears to hear about all the monochrome colours coming in to stock! It’s pretty safe to say that my wardrobe with be bursting full of Urban Outfitters come Spring 2015!

Silver Trainer Style Shoes – Richard Nicoll X Swear London

I can’t believe how cold it’s getting now and its going to get worse! Especially with expected snow… I hate snow. Call me a kill joy but it only looks good for the first couple of hours and then it turns to slush and mud. Everything stops, you can’t drive anywhere, its cold, its wet and I would probably still be expected to show up at uni!

I do love wrapping up in cosy clothes though!This scarf is so warm and soft, plus you know I love all things furry like this to die for skirt from Warehouse! Also Primark have brought out a pair of shoes just like the limited edition ones I’m wearing, so check those out when you’re next shopping!

I loved shooting this in during sunset. Laura and I had just been to see Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 (which was absolutely incredible!) and decided to make the most of the beautiful sky by shooting our outfits!

I am a massive fan of wearing white in Winter months and these faux leather items are so thick and cosy that I can still keep warm. Not only is this look white on white but it’s pleather on pleather!

I will soon be adding the outtake shots from this outfit on Le Outtake so keep checking back!

I have a current ‘all things soft’ obsession and have found myself purchasing many fluffy/furry/fuzzy items! This jumper is the most incredible invention! I wear it all the time now! I do end up sitting there stroking my arms though which probably gets me a view odd looks…

I am so busy at the moment! Not only am I balancing my typical uni work, blogging, part time job… but I am also currently working on an illustration collaboration with Matchesfashion.com a big online designer fashion store! It’s so fun and seems to be going well :) Watch this space!

I have another OOTD post coming in the next couple of days so keep checking back!

Also, Laura (from The Fashion Wonderland) and I have started up a new kind of blog called ‘The Outtake‘! It will feature all the silly outtakes that we do whilst shooting our OOTD posts. Please check it out for us!

Black Studded Bag – ℅ Reiss

Black Buckled Courts – Carvela

This skirt was one of the pieces that I bought from Fashion Union with my winnings from the Style Battle shoot. I absolutely love it as it makes me feel like a 1920’s flapper with its pleated drop hem.

Recently I have been feeling such a lack of motivation with my uni work so I thought I would share with you some success quotes that I have found online…

- Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs: the future can be better than the present and I have the power to make it so.

- If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan but never the goal.

- The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.

- When someone tells you it can’t be done, it’s a reflection on their limitations not yours.

- The secret to getting ahead is getting started!

I love this look that I wore to the Motel Rocks Party at The FarRockaway! It felt like I was having a 60’s moment with the a-line mini skirt from Zara and my new bobbed hair cut… Especially when posing in the telephone box! You can see more photos from the event in my post below.

After the event we took outfit photos by Liverpool Street Station to test out Laura’s new camera lens. I freaked out when I saw the monochrome telephone box! Which was really just a black telephone box but it just felt like fate!

Got some more posts coming at the end of this weekend guys so keep checking back!
