Red and Black

 Black and red is probably one of my fave combos this autumn/winter. I am a girl who loves red all year long, but with more black than ever being added to my wardrobe, its making for lots of easy to wear remixability (is-that-even-a-word?)I've loved this window pane, type pattern thats been gracing everything from sweaters to trousers. I've wanted something in the white and black print for a while, but this one took my fancy big time and it is so so comfy and warm and cosy to plus in books!

I totally need to get a new black fedora type hat, i've flattened this one way too many times and its gone reeeally misshapen,but its been well worn i have to admit, its time for a new upgrade. Rachel The Hat needs a new Hat! Have you seen a good ones around of late?
I recently picked this sweater dress and long-line biker jacket out from the wonder that is Sheinside, that site literally has so so many amazing (really well priced) pieces, its like blogger/clothes collectors heaven.. talk about bad for the old bank account...eek!!

 Isn't autumn just looking beautiful lately?! I have to admit i am already getting Christmas excited, but restraining myself till Dec 1st! Plus with my birthday next week (arghh) i feel like December could be a really fun month, i can't wait! Do you have any great plans for the coming cold month? I would love to go to the Winter Wonderland in Cardiff to go outdoor  ice skating and take Neo to see Father Christmas and then we have our works Christmas doo which we are getting all dressed up for and drinking champagne! I can't wait! I LOVE this time of year, im like a giant kid!! I've already drunk my weight in Christmas coffees and hot chocolates (yup ive tried each and every one!!) and i'm going to make sure i soak up every moment of this wonderful season. Taking the moments in and enjoying every single second!
