This is the look that I wore last weekend when I went out shopping with Adam. It was absolutely freezing though and I definitely didn’t wrap up warm enough, I ended up having to buy a new pair of gloves when I was out, just so I could wear them. I do really love this look though! I usually opt for a lot of colour in my outfits, but this time I decided upon various shades of grey.

I got this gorgeous All Saints Lorie Tula Coat in Charcoal last month when they were having a 20% off sale. I fell in love with it online and even though I loved the navy version, I really liked the grey more in person. The fit of it is perfect and I find it to be really classic and smart. It has a leather lapel to it and the plaid stitching is bigger on the arms than it is on the rest of the coat. It’s really stunning! For those of you interested in the sizing, I’m between a UK 6 to 8 and I took a 6 in this one. It is really fitted though.

Underneath I wore a GAP grey jumper and then layered a grey checked scarf by the brand on top. For my jeans, I wore my trusty AG Adriano Goldschmied Legging Jeans (similar here) and tucked them into my Kurt Geiger Winona Boots in Grey. Finally, I finished it off with my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Love Bag in Black and my Daniel Wellington Grace London watch.

This coat is absolutely something you will be seeing a lot more of on my blog, especially worn with black skinny jeans or burgundy ones, I really can’t get enough of it! What do you think of it? I would love to know! And on a side note, I will be taking a bit of a break from blogging until Saturday as I’m having an early Christmas with Adam! I will post on Saturday though with an update of things, so until then, have a great week!

My New Daniel Wellington Grace London Watch

daniel wellington grace blue burgundy watch My New Daniel Wellington Grace London Watch

I own two Daniel Wellington watches already (here and here) so as you probably already know, I am a huge fan of the brand. I was lucky enough to be able to choose a watch from their brand new collection, so I opted for the new Daniel Wellington Grace London watch in Blue & Red. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I adore it! Navy and burgundy is a combination that I am a huge lover of anyway, since I wear it numerous times in clothing, so combining it in a watch is fantastic.

The new Grace London style features the classic nato striped strap, but it also has brown leather around it too, giving it a more elegant and expensive feel. The case is a sand blasted rose gold which hides the eggshell dial, so it combines a lot of luxury in one in my opinion. When I first got the watch, out of its pretty leather box, I was instantly drawn to it. It works for both women and men as it’s unisex and I think this colour combination goes with everything, but if it doesn’t, the straps are also interchangeable!

I’ve worn this pretty watch a few times already and I will be sharing the outfit I wore it with soon, but for now, I wanted to dedicate a full post to it because I really do love it. I’m happy to have added this one to my watch collection. Have any of you other fashion bloggers got the new Grace London watch? And do you love Daniel Wellington too? I would love to know! In the meantime, you can purchase this watch and the other strap colours online by clicking here.

It’s that time of year again where I create my Christmas gift guide (see last years here)! This one is pretty big and includes 50 items, ranging from clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery to accessories, make-up, beauty products and food! There’s something for everyone here and they are all pieces I love myself too. Instead of doing a December Currently Craving post, like I do each month, I decided to incorporate it into this gift guide instead! It’s super easy to buy the items, like usual, just click the numbers under the collages that correspond to the numbers on the items. Happy Holiday Shopping!

Above I have 10 different beauty items, choosing make-up in the form mascara, like the Benefit They’re Real Mascara and the Lancome Glamour Eyes Set (c/o), eye shadows from Illamasqua and Mally, lip balms and tints from Pixi, then a fantastic moisturiser for night time from Origins and the most amazing scrub that literally smells like Haribo from Jan Marini. I love everything here and I have no doubts that you will too!

Who doesn’t love cosy accessories for Christmas? I’m always used to getting slippers, socks, gloves, hats and mittens! They are an essential which we all need at some point, but how adorable are some of these pieces? I even included a festive hot water bottle for those cold nights, an iPhone case and a pretty little snow globe!

Spearmint Fresh

(Jumper – Exact, Jeans – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Bracelets – Exact & Exact, Bag – Exact)

Spearmint shades in Autumn? Some of you might be questioning it, but I think it’s kind of cool. I got to choose this gorgeous tree print jumper/sweater from Rose Gal and instead of styling it with black jeans or something equally as plain, Adam and I decided that it would look quite cool if we carried on the the mint shade into the legs, which is why we went with these Mavi skinny jeans in mint green. It sort of gives the outfit an ombre feel to it in a strange way.

For the shoes, we went with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black as the jumper has black accents, so it was fitting and then we added more spearmint with my Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip bag (similar here) too! Finally, for my jewellery, I chose my ASOS oil slick ring, my horns ring and I also wore these two gorgeous bracelets from Annie Haak. I got to choose them from the site and the quotes on them really match my personality. The pink slimmer one says ‘Dream. Believe. Achieve’ which is what I do daily and the silver bangle reads ‘Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Lots’ which again, is something I stand by for a happy life. I would love to know what you think of my outfit, and of course, I want to say a huge thank you to all of you for the support you give me on a daily basis! It really does mean so much to me, from other fashion bloggers and regular readers, it’s nice to know you like my blog and appreciate all the work I put in.
