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!

An InLinkz Link-up



  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

    Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Love this monochromatic look. The scarf is gorgeous! ~Cynthia

  5. You cannot go wrong with black and grey! Such a classic and chic combo. I have been wearing black and white non-stop lately it seems like.

  7. Great wintery outfit. I love those statement earrings.


    Hope to see you for TBT Fashion linkup.

  8. I adore this classically chic look head to toe! Thanks for hosting this link up. T.

  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.

  11. How beautiful outfit, you look so gorgeous.

  12. Love to visit this amazing blog. Cool!!!


  13. I came by because I missed you blog and was so happy to find the linkup still open! and YES it is crazy busy this time of year, I can barely keep myself afloat and I also find that I am in a "mood" and continually reach for the same items that help me feel put together...and fast!!

    I wold love to co-host passion 4 fashion again if you need a co-host, let me know. And I'll also shoot you an email about submitting to be a yosa cover girl. I really REALLY love my necklace!

  14. I'm loving the Houndstooth scarf!

    God bless,
    XO, Claire
