Passion 4 Fashion Linkup, and some Grey, Black & Houndstooth




I have thing for all greys and black outfits at the moment. Which is rare for me, a girl who is normally all about colourful outfits, but none the less i am very happy with the new monochromatic editions i've been adding to my wardrobe this winter. Life is so incredibly busy lately(anyone else find the Festive period crazy-hectic?!) and so i have been reaching for simple outfits more and more. In fact when i'm not going far and i'm home with the pooch and kids, i find i'm just chilling in skinny jeans and a chunky knit, and more often than not i'm happiest like this. Being surrounded by loved ones, in  simple and comfy clothes equals my happy place.
I know this won't last long, after a week of repeating the same outfit i get bored and look forward to mixing it up, the joys i guess of being fickle ;)
As for this outfit, this once again was from le birthday week and a meal out.. birthday and celebrations all seem to revolve around eating out for me.. good food and good company; Life doesn't get any better than that!









Scarf, bag & Biker Jacket: New Look
Dress: Primark
Boots: F&F
Earrings: Coming soon toYosa

Are you busy this festive season? Do you ever revert to super easy outfits?

If anyone would like to co host Passion 4 Fashion whilst Lena is on sebatical just shoot me a tweet or email! :) 
I would love to have some more co hosts!

  1. Looking lovely and cosy in that outfit! I do like houndstooth, so the scarf is fab, and your boots are such a lookalike of the Acne Pistol boots, but from F&F they must have been much more affordable. Thanks for hosting x

  2. Ohhhhhhhh lovely lady this SO works! I'd noticed your outfits had been getting darker and more sultry lately... it really suits you!! I too love the bright colours on you but with your gorgeous hair and colouring these dark colours look amazing on you. That scarf's a winner.

    Have a marvellous weekend Rachel, lots of love

  9. Another fab outfit. You always pair your dresses so unexpectedly with more casual or edgy pieces and it always works.

  10. I'm a sucker for houndstooth! I love how you paired yours with gray and black. I usually reach for a pop of color, but this is sophisticated.
