This pretty much sums up my winters uniform. Longline coat, check. Dusty pink knit, check. Bobble hat, check. Celine-esque skater shoes, CHECK! After eye-ing up this style at the Celine show and near enough every blogger thereafter I was shocked to find these in the River Island sale for just £6!
The Stella Mccartney A/W'13 collection was possibly one of the most sought-after of the season so you can imagine I almost choked on my morning tea when I clapped eyes on this Stella worthy arm candy*! Front Row Shop is fast becoming my number one online spot to drool; they are setting the standard for designer-inspired, unique pieces you'll need in your wardrobe season after season.. in fact I'd quite like to just fill my entire wardrobe with the collection please!
Just a few items I've had pending in my shopping cart recently that work nicely together for a dress down day. After my recent eye test proved my iPad is slowly destroying my sight, I've had my four-eyes on these Tom Ford specs. And that Zara bag is definitely making its way on to my Christmas list!
This winters key item is evidently the coat and although that may scream obvious with it being bitterly cold; this season really has focused on finding that IT winter warmer, be it colour or print you edge towards. If the pink coats from my previous post didn't make your wish list then I'm guessing tartan is next to be ticked!
Rochelle Humes is showcasing her LOVE tartan boyfriend coat by almost accessorising with a simplistic all black ensemble to really highlight that her outfit is all about the printed coat. I liked her style so I put together a similar version using other staple items from the inlovewithfashion website. And lucky for us there's an exclusive offer on the cards if you click below!
If you follow me on Twitter you'll know I've been banging on like a broken record about the pink Primark coat since it hit stores in October. You'll also be aware of how heart-broken I've been to not get my hands on it as it sold out apparently within a day. It's no surprise really with pink being this seasons IT coat colour and Primark offering it up at just £32 a piece! But with my heart now set on it without a pink coat, my winter wardrobe will not be complete and this is no exaggeration. I have been determined to find a replacement and one of these darlings above will happily suffice.
With Christmas approaching (I know, ITS ONLY NOVEMBER!) you have to start prepping what to wear to all those upcoming festivities early or you run the risk of leaving it last min and potentially missing out on that IT dress that now your mate has nabbed first or anxiously anticipating if Christmas deliveries are going to be as fail-safe as every year! hmm!
But I'm sure now I've warned you, you've got that dress in mind and comfortably sitting in your check-out bag.
Next Dilemma, I feel lost without my watch but its chunky boyfriend fit doesn't quite resemble the same elegance I'm going with for such a glamorous season and I find this is often the case on many a night out. No one wants to compromise on style, so I looked to The Watch Gallery for something a little more 'What would Belle wear to the Ball?'.
I came across this Longines La Grande timeless beauty that would compliment many a ball-gown whilst keeping on trend with its simplistic clean white face. Don't be surprised if you have more people admiring your watch over you're dress!
In all honesty I don't know if I myself would have the guts to rock this outfit outside of my bedroom walls but beanies off to you if you can nail the 90's look from day to night. I'd either have to swap the heels for hi-tops or ditch the beanie because I admit there's a whole lot of look going on here. However, I was trying to channel next seasons highly sort after sweatshirt from Alexander Wangs s/s14 collection with Choies take on the trend 'Rich Fashion Advisory' sweat.
We all love the elementary task of online shopping, fashion at our finger tips, be it a light distraction from the working day or when in search of an outfit for any given event. If you're already a fan of the likes of Romwe, Sheinside or Choies then Persun should be the next stop on your list! PersunMall stock some seriously cool items you and I have probably spotted on many a celebrity and blogger, so if you haven't already browsed the site I suggest you get your game face on and head over! Above I have selected my edit of the great on-trend pieces the site has to offer.

Autumn is here, so its safe to say the beanies are back! I was having a casual day and decided to rock the nineties trend, mainly because I can't stop wearing the two favourite items in my wardrobe right now; Adidas tee and Nike Airs. Never thought I'd be this obsessed with sports labels again since my tomboy days aged nine!
I've put a grey toner in my hair and played around with the lighting on these images to try and achieve the hair colour I'm considering going permanent with. Its a bit of a love/hate subject, what do you think?

Four ways to dress up your jeans
Forget those skimpy bikinis and raunchy leather stage clothes. Rihanna recently shocked diners at swanky LA restaurant Giorgio Baldi when she ditched her risqué wardrobe for something more
conservative. The Grammy-winning singer pulled off a sophisticated look, combining a casual pair of blue skinny jeans with a pale pink tuxedo jacket and black heels. You don’t have to be an A-List celeb to look as smart and glamorous as Rihanna. For everything from an informal job interview to casual drinks with friends, dress up your jeans with these four simple suggestions.
Throw on a blazer
Sharp and chic, the right blazer can smarten up any casual jeans and cuts a more formal figure than a comfy cardigan. Go for a flattering tailored fit, or try a boyfriend blazer for a trendy take. These oversized jackets are hot off the catwalk and a hit with stylish celebs like Beyoncé, Britney and Holly Willoughby.
Choose fabulous footwear
Ditch those muddy trainers for a more glamorous style. Wedges provide a comfortable alternative to high heels and create a refined look that's favoured by such classy fashion icons as the Duchess of Cambridge. However, if you’re perfectly comfortable with sky-scraping stilettos, try the popular gladiator design for an edgy twist that can even make your legs look slimmer.
Come over to the dark side of denim
Pale, ripped and baggy styles are perfect for an edgy streetwear-inspired outfit, but a black or midnight blue tone will give you a more sophisticated look. Create an elegant contrast by teaming with a light top for understated cool.
This doesn't mean you have to stick with blacks and blues - for a more colourful take on dressed-up denim team jeans in bold greens, rich reds or deep purples with a pretty blouse or crisp shirt. Remember to stick with a dark tone and a slim fit for a suitably formal look.
Whether you're planning on debuting your new style at the office or a fancy restaurant, you can find a variety of women's jeans at Very.co.uk.
If the tan didn't give it away that I'm back from my travels, then the sight of me back in heels should! I've spent the majority of the past three months running around barefoot like some scantily clad cave woman! And as much as I want to jump on a flight back to Australia immediately its comforting to be back to my wardrobe and have more options than "what vest shall I wear with my Levi's today?!". If you'd like to see me in true traveller form, the amazing experiences I had and places I visited flick through my instagram veeveevogue.
Of course, I've returned to autumn which I'm still coming to terms with as I'm in summer mode. So I've found a happy medium and teamed this seasons key print Tartan with a skater skirt and toughened it up with chunky boots and their go-to season accessory, thick socks! Frontrowshop.com kindly gifted me this tartan top so if you're after high design on-trend pieces at highstreet prices be sure to check them out.

I got old on the 30th April, so drowned my sorrows with some friends! I was gifted this beautiful Gabby dress from Hedonia. It was the epitome of a birthday girl dress, and more on the sophisticated side in length now I'm a mature woman ;) but still kept it party in the back-less.
I was delighted with the quality of fabrics and finishing when the dress arrived and it will be a piece I keep in my wardrobe and pull out for special occasions. So definitely check out the website if you're looking for that wow factor!
I’m off to Australia and Thailand this summer and I'm attempting to travel light so I need to mix and match items going from day to night. I know you’re probably thinking the colours aren’t at all selling summer but I’m feeling rather monochrome at the moment, and it would be rude not to, considering its one of this summers’ biggest trends. Also this way I know I can create multiple outfits as everything will blend within the same colour palette and I can add splashes of brights around these items! Another great tip to note is, as nothing is too statement no one should notice it’s been styled more than once. Just because I’m packing minimal doesn’t mean I can’t be savvy!
However, I am on a minimal budget and as much as I’d love to spree my way through the rails of Topshop and Zara I need to save what I can for my travels. So I headed over to Newlook.com to get my on-trend travel attire at an affordable price. All this came to just over £130 and I can get a total of 11 outfits out of these combos!
Many of the items featured here/or similar will be coming with me on my travels so look forward to seeing them pop up in future outfit posts!
