Duster Jacket, Cropped Breton Top and Pointy Loafers

Sunday, 17 August 2014

Do you ever wear an outfit that just feels so right? Like you have an image in your head that you know where you want your style to be at, but often that doesn't transcend in to actually happening?
Well that's me normally. I like a certain look/style in my head but i just don't pull it off.
Well that all changed when i pieced this outfit together.
I actually love this outfit.
This is exactly where i want to be right now, style wise. THIS NEVER HAPPENS!
I'm really happy. I don't know what it is exactly, but i've worn this outfit twice this week and each time i've just felt like me, which is always a good things isn't it.
I've been enjoying more 'grown up' styles and by that i guess i mean more tailored because i actually feel very far from 'grown up' and i don't think i ever want to truly grow up, but a more smart/casual style is what i'm gravitating towards of late. I don't really know why, but that's just where my heads at right now (this changes regularly i can assure you) I am loving crisp white shirts, or breton stripe tops. Smart blazers or (duster jackets in this case) and well fitted jeans/trousers.
The loafers were a recent purchase after so much research. I wanted the perfect loafer for autumn, something that was smart but would hopefully go with many outfits and also become like slippers.
I ended up, after way too much deliberation i might add (im so fickle its actually painful), buying these River Island patent point loafers. When they first arrived i was reeally unsure.. they just added extra lengths to my already fairly substantial feet, but then i wore them and fell in shoe love. I've had them on all weekend and they have been really very comfy( i've worn them with those little inner sock liner thingies which are a god send!)
So yay, i see a lot of wear in their very near future.

Drop Waist Navy Dress with a Biker Jacket (& Passion4Fashion Linkup)

Friday, 15 August 2014


 A week long break from outfit posts has felt relaxing and frustrating all at the same time. You know when you can't get photos on any given day so you kind of dress down or wear the same thing (a lot) well thats been me. But then i get frustrated and wanna play dress up and take blog photos. it's a hard life eh.
Its been raining so so much here in the UK that we have had literally no chance to grab photos, that and being super busy with the summer holidays and kiddo stuff and hub's been working really long hours. All this equates to not many #ootd pics. But i am so glad to be back with this one today.
Last week do you remember my bargain biker jeans from Primark and me saying i also bought a few other things on my super speedy shop. Well, this drop waist dress is one of the other purchases, which i utterly love! This is my second attempt with the drop waist and i like it!
I can see this simple little dress with tights and boots in its very near future (man is it cold here.. its like autumn has come early!)
Plus navy and black together with a little added 'neutral' of the leopard print all makes for a simple but effective outfit.

Couple Of Things...

Monday, 11 August 2014

Just wanted to run a few things past you guys..
I'm not here on the blog today, i'm actually over at Polka-Dot Pink stepping in for Donna whilst she's on her travels through Europe (which looks amazing by the way, some of the places she has seen...oh em gee!! Very jealous!)
So if you're missing me i'm actually over here.

The weather here is atrocious at the moment, it feels like summer was already an age ago which makes me so so sad to think we may not have any more summer evening walks..Come on Britain, give us some summer again please!

But silver lining, i am already very excited for autumn clothing! Yep i am that person who loves this season and the clothes that go with it. Gimme great coats and gorgeous boots any day!
