THE CAMEL SCARF


Scarf: Zara
Shirt: Primark
Jeans: ASOS
Boots: Russell and Bromley 'Reserve'
Lipstick: MAC 'Please Me'

Yet another post wearing these boots - I'm obsessed. I bought this scarf just before Christmas and I wear it so much, I have a few different scarves that I just kind of keep in rotation and wear every day. I'm actually kinda dreading summer coming round as I won't be able to wear scarves - weird, I know.

NARS VELVET MATTE LIP PENCIL IN 'CRUELLA'


















I am a part of the ASOS blogger programme called Access All ASOS, and for this Christmas they really kindly decided to host a secret santa with a load of bloggers and other ASOS insiders! We were given a £15 voucher code each and were challenged to pick out something for our secret santa from the whole ASOS site. I was sent the name of another blogger and had to put my stalking skills to good use to track them down and pick out a present for her, I hope she like it as much as I like this!

The Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the shade 'Cruella' is what I received as my secret santa present - I had wanted this since last year when Vivianna went on a Nars Lip Pencil craze but it was one of those things that I never quite got around to picking up. My secret santa Becky did really well to pick it out (despite seeing my tweet from earlier that day saying how much I wanted it!!) and it's safe to say it lives up to my expectations! It's got a super smooth consistency that lasts hours without you feeling as if you are wearing anything on your lips - perfect.

I got it a month or so ago, and I have been wearing it so much ever since - I really should of bought it ages ago as it has quickly become one of those lip products that makes me say "how on earth did I ever live without this before?!"

THE CHECKED SHIRT

Sunglasses: Ray-Ban 'Erika'
Shirt: Stolen from Dad's wardrobe
Jeans: Topshop 'Joni'
Boots: Russell and Bromley (Stuart Weiztman) 'Reserve'
Lipstick: MAC 'Dark-side'
Coat: Zara
Scarf: Zara

I wore this outfit when I went out for a little afternoon walk with mum (photo credit goes to her!) we went along the beach and down to the woods before going to a local art gallery, doing a bit of shoppping and then out for coffee. After, I made an absolutely delicious red thai chicken ramen type thing (based on this recipe by Heather Christo) for dinner and it was one of my favourite meals I've had in a while, I've been loving cooking recently and I blame Pinterest entirely. There's so many recipes on there that I want to make!

I've been wearing these boots so much recently, like all the time. If you've been considering buying yourself a pair then I say definitely do it - p.s. the Stuart Weiztman 'Reserve' style are incredibly comfortable! They definitely dress up what could be a very casual outfit into something a bit more sophisticated, which is what I tend to go for!

THE LEATHER SKIRT




Dress: Zara
Heels: Stuart Weiztman 'Plunge'
Lipstick: MAC 'Please Me'

I bought this dress back in the summer when I was in Morocco and as far as I can remember I've only worn it once - I have no idea why as I absolutely love it! Paired with a classic pair of black suede heels it's such a simple outfit but one that you can wear for a lot of different occasions. I like how it's still a leather skirt, but it looks a lot more chic than what you would associate a leather skirt with being. The shirt part of the dress has lovely detailing too, with the pearl buttons and gem cufflinks as you can see from the photo. It's the small details like these that can turn a simple item of clothing into one which looks a lot more expensive and special.

BLACK ON BLACK ON BLACK





Jumper: Mattalan
Jeans: Topshop 'Jamie'
Boots: Russell and Bromley
Lipstick: Chanel 'La Desireé'

I can't believe I didn't used to like wearing black, I'm borderline obsessed with it now. I bought these boots last week after wanting them for a couple years, and I'm so glad I finally made the investment! These photos aren't really doing them any justice, but they have been in all of the magazines recently and I love the over the knee boot look - I think they make a plain outfit like this look much more pulled together considering I'm just wearing jeans and a jumper! Oh and I'm wearing a turtle neck again, there's no surprise there really is there.
