Changing With The Seasons #2 – February, Winter*

By March 6, 2015 Changing With The Seasons

I know, I know… it’s March and I’m only just putting up my CWTS #2 (meant for February)… I just blame February being shorter, I mean who knew 2 or 3 days less than usual could make such a big difference? I really do apologise though, I doubt any of you are really keeping track of the schedule, but oh well. It’s here now! Want to know how to dress for winter? Step right this way…

It’s definitely getting warmer, which I am SO excited about. I tweeted the other day saying that I literally love summer and spring so much. It’s just that feeling of stepping out the door and not having a freezing cold nose and not having to cover up your meticulously planned outfit with a coat. We’re nearly getting there and that means… COLOUR. I think this skirt (that you guys so amazingly voted for me to style) is a nice inbetween colour, because it matches the purple, but then it also sorta’ blends in those black tights that I’m still clinging on to.

I made this outfit a little bit more snazzy with texture too. I’ve been dying to try out the whole ‘scuba’ trend and I’m loving it. The structure to it makes everything look a bit more sleek and perhaps even a bit more expensive. I’ve had an odd relationship with Glamorous, but the more I wear their pieces, the more I fall in love. The other bit of texture is my faux fur gilet. It has been rather sad as you guys didn’t vote for it… but it made a cheeky appearance anyway!

I love my faux fur gilet, especially now as it matches my super adorable floral headband from Johnny Loves Rosie… but then again that’s rather sad too as it, keeps. on. braking! The stems of flowers just decide to pop off, so I perhaps wouldn’t suggest buying it, unless you just really like the look of it. Speaking of things we really like the look of… LOOK. AT. MY SHOES.

You have no idea how long I have wanted a proper (like proper, proper) pair of holographic shoes, and I finally have some. I do admit that they are slightly noisy (the buckles tend to squeak and rattle) and the zips are a little too stiff, but I can live with that… they’re amazing. I thank Boohoo for bringing them into my life… I will just point out here and now, that this year I’ll be working with Boohoo on a snazzy lil’ prom outfit… who’s excited for that?!

And finally, the video! I hope you enjoy the little video segment, because I do! It also kind of gives me an excuse to put something up on my YouTube channeleek, haha! I know each one is only short but it just gives you a little insight in to what the outfit actually looks like in ‘real life’? Let me know what you think and please do make sure to subscribe, it would make me very happy! Speak soon…

To add to the whole ‘seasonal’ part of this, I genuinely was freezing whilst taking these photos… that’s why there aren’t that many to look at (sorry!). But, that doesn’t take away the charm of the outfit. As I mentioned in one of my recent YouTube videos, I’ve been loving 90s style right now, so statement oversized jumpers have been ma’ thang’. I love them! I’ve paired up with Adolescent Clothing, which meant they sent me over their super cool Photo Bomb jumper. I first spotted it on ASOS, and adore it. It’s made me fall in love with primary colours, and even white.

The skirt really complements the jumper, especially when you nicely tuck it in. I added my super crazy Dalmatian coat on top for an added layer… I really am a rebel! Mixing black and navy… who knew it could look okay? Monochrome really is a fail safe option for any outfit.

 In terms of accessories, I decided to play it simple. I’ve been tossing and turning over getting some Vagabonds for ages, and I finally caved and got them. I used to have a really similar ASOS pair, but these are definitely something different. They’ve got quite a high heel, but they’re balanced out with a platform for comfort. I know white isn’t the obvious choice to go for, but I love how they look. What do you think?

Another new piece into my wardrobe is my adorable pineapple necklace. I have been wanting one from And Mary for ages and I finally got the chance! It’s beautiful. The detail is incredible and I can’t stop staring at it when it’s around my neck. Ooh ooh! Who can spot my french manicure? I did it myself and I’m quite chuffed. Cute and simple, just how I like it!

To top it off, I thought I would treat you to a video! I’m going to do one per ‘CWTS’ post, and I hope you enjoy them. Just the outfit in video form so you can really see how it goes together. Let me know what you think and don’t forget to head over to my channel and subscribe 🙂

Keeping Warm with ARK Clothing*

By December 5, 2013 Fashion

Brrr! It’s a bit cold isn’t it? I have to wear thick tights underneath jeans at the moment! As it is so cold, I thought it would be fitting to do this post about Winter fashion with one of my favourite online shops, ARK Clothing!

Ark Clothing Criminal Damage AX Paris Cheap Monday Winter Warmers Sponsored Blog PostCriminal Damage//AX Paris//Cheap Monday (Brands at ARK Clothing – accessories from other brands on the site!)

When I think about dressing for winter, I think comfortable clothes, layers and pieces which are nice and thick, so that is why I selected the three main items in the image above! The Criminal Damage sweater is really warm and snug, and wearing thick sweatshirts in Winter is one of my favourite things to do! I’m not the biggest fan of slogan tops, but this one is in a versatile colour so could go with lots of different things, and would be perfect for casual wear! The AX Paris dress is my favourite piece! I absolutely love swing dresses at the moment because I think they are so flattering and comfortable, and this one is just perfect for the season! I love how it is quite Burberry-esque with the heart print. I also love how it could be dressed up or down, so to be honest, it is quite a good investment! When it comes down to jeans though, this Cheap Monday pair are my cup of tea! They have that slight worn out look, and look super duper comfy! As styled in the picture, they would look great with boots or perhaps a pair of flats and thick socks (or tights underneath!). With any of these pieces, you could layer them with a big fluffy snood, a pair of boots and a nice dainty necklace – oh, and don’t forget those gloves! Everything looks so cosy and warm!

I really like everything at ARK Clothing at the moment, and some of the brands they have are really nice and have some great bargains! I hope you liked this post and if you did, make sure to leave a comment!
