Tartan Tailoring

 ASOS tartan suit & t-shirt

You know there's nothing I like more than masculine tailoring, and when I spotted this suit on my gorgeous friend Sophie a few weeks back I knew I needed it in my wardrobe. Tartan is a trend that reoccurs every Autumn / Winter so this matching two piece will be a staple that takes me through several seasons. 

While usually I'd pair this outfit with a sleek pair of stilettos, the chilly weather got the better of me today so I opted for a pair of heeled ankle boots instead. The shiny bag is a new favourite from Paul's Boutique. It's the perfect size for everyday and has a very luxe feel with the chic, black patent combined with  sophisticated suede. 

I can't help but feel like I'm channeling my inner Proudlock in this tartan tailoring. A bit of an unexpected style icon but a good one none the less.

Classic Camel Coat

NEW LOOK scarf
NEXT mules

The perfect camel coat is something I've lusted over for years. It is the epitome of sophistication and makes even the most laid back outfit of skinny jeans and a T-shirt look fabulous. Most high street stores have been offering variations on the classic style this season but surprisingly it was the simplicity of the Missguided one that caught my eye. No belt, no fastenings, no fuss - just pure perfection. The length of the coat is really flattering and the material feels thick and heavy, therefore making it look (and feel) a lot more expensive than it really is.

The outfit underneath the coat is actually what I wore to a job interview last week, but more on that another day. I think the burgundy cigarette trousers are a chic and seasonal alternative to the usual black and I thought they looked great partnered with the deep red tartan scarf and my amazing matching nails that I had done at WAH London for my Birthday. There's something very Victoria Beckham about a big, long coat over simple tailoring, all I'd need is a sleek ponytail and a huge pair of sunglasses and I'd be one step closer to nailing the VB look.  

What's your must have item this winter?

Paul's Boutique Christmas Collection Launch 2014

We all remember Paul's Boutique from our teens, right? Loud clashing prints, "I <3 PB" symbols, those jackets worn by all the cool girls in year 10. Well it's time to forget the old Paul's Boutique and welcome the sophisticated, affordable, luxury brand that it has become. 

I was lucky enough to attend the launch of the new Christmas collection at Westfield in London last week. The champagne was flowing and it was a great opportunity to have a sneak peek at the new range as well as catching up with the lovely ladies at Paul's Boutique and even meeting Paul himself! 

The collection features gorgeous shades of cobalt blue, rich cream and dark grey with pops of animal print on luxe fabrics such as suede, patent and faux leather. The range varies from cute little clutches to office appropriate shoulder bags, and everything in between. 

So what do you think of the new, grown up Paul's Boutique? I can't wait to share with you the little treat I took home from the party!

NEW LOOK skinny trousers
NEXT mules
PRIMARK fedora

Is this sheer, over-sized, sparkly forest green T-shirt not the most amazing thing you've ever seen? It's super slouchy and made of a really thin knit so it's comfy to wear during the day, but the sheerness and sparkle give it a little extra somethin' somethin', so it can totally work for evening too. 

I think the general rule for over-sized clothing is to pair it with a clean silhouette so today I went for some skin tight black trousers and a sleek pair of heels. I finished off the look with my camel fedora which FYI was an absolute steal from Primark. I think this T-shirt would also look amazing half tucked in to a leather mini skirt and pair of high heels for a night out, or equally over a pair of flared jeans and ankle boots for a more casual vibe.

The Christmas party season is looming which means all the shops are filling up with beautiful glittery and metallic clothes. I'm a bit of a magpie at this time of year and will most definitely be picking up some more party appropriate bits over the next few weeks.

Are you down with the over-sized trend? How would you wear this T-shirt? Leave me a comment and let me know!
