Black Lace Bralet – Urban Outfitters

Black Plunge Neckline Jumpsuit – H&M

Gold Bangle Style Necklace – Warehouse

Black Strappy Shoes – Carvela

I love a jumpsuit, although it took me a while to get into them. I always thought that because I’m short, they wouldn’t suit me but once you find which style fits your body shape best then they are the easiest way to look chic. This gorgeous jumpsuit from H&M has a beautiful plunging neckline meaning that it can be styled for the day (with a turtle neck underneath for example) or as I have style it here with a peek-a-boo lace effect. Perfect for a date on Valentines day? ;)

I highly recommend that if you haven’t found the confidence to rock a jumpsuit that you definitely take the plunge and try a few on!

Black Lace Trim Skirt (worn underneath) – Zara

Black Leather Boot Heels – Forever21

Black Fedora Hat – H&M

Many apologies for my blogging hiatus, I’ve had to concentrate on my dissertation which is finally handed in! I chose do base my dissertation around the development of the personal style blog and it’s effect on the fashion industry, which turned out to be incredibly interesting to research! I knew there were multiple opinions on us fashion bloggers but some of the article written about us are hilarious! Please give ‘The Circus of Fashion’ by Suzy Menkes a read. Despite the fact she is slating us, her writing skills are brilliant, witty and I laughed the whole way through!

This outfit is a very easy, thrown together look which is perfect for that Winter to Spring transition. Plus any opportunity to show a bit of leg, now that the sun’s coming out of hiding, is not to be passed up on! Also, (big headed moment) how great does my hair look!? I’m trying this fab product by Bed Head called ‘Blow Out’ and ever since, my hair has been easy tameable and falls into perfect place! I highly recommend, as do my housemates who steal it all the time!

ced49bc6d4ab8c98be6645ef44412a1c

Graphic Prints, in a subtle and chic way.

Soft Tailoring, draped and feminine.

Leather, because it is always necessary!

Statement Shoes, a subtle way to stand out.

Varied Hairstyles, because who wants to be boring!?

I am so excited about Fashion Week fast approaching and I’m already planning my purchases! It will probably get in the way of my final collection schedule at uni but, what the hell! We can call it research right? Everytime Fashion Week comes round it makes me more and more buzzed about my future in the fashion industry and life after uni! This is my last Fashion Week before I graduate! I hope you like my inspo pictures, they are also perfect for that transitional Winter to Spring period!

Long Black Coat – Zara

Black Shift Dress with Sheer Trim – Urban Outfitters

Black Strappy Sandals – Carvela

Crystal Pendent Necklace – Urban Outfitters

This coat was a happy accident! I never meant for it to be such a big size, I’m a size Small but they only had Mediums left so I went for it (seeing as the sale price was only £60) and I love it! It literally looks like I’ve stolen some guys coat and I think it’s fab!

NIGHT LOOK

White Shirt Dress – River Island

White Pleated Skirt – c/o Fashion Union

Black Boot Heels – Forever21

Red Laser Cut Clutch – Topshop

I love this white shirt dress from River Island! It was a Christmas present from my sister and I thought I would show you how I would wear it for both day and night. It can be worn over jeans as an easy daytime look, I wear all the time! But layered with this Fashion Union skirt it also looks good for an evening look.

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!
