get the look: winter boho

This is my favourate look right now. The gorgeous stitch on the skirt is so wintery and I love waist bands like this. I'm so happy that denim jackets have stayed on trend for A/W, the one I have is practically identical to the one in this photo. 

 I don't have the exact bag, snood or boots in this picture but I have similar items. I have a lovely knitted black scarf that everyone should have somewhere - mines from years ago. The boot's I have are completely different to the ones featured, but any black boots will go lovely with this outfit. I also suggest putting either a pair of leggings or tights with this outfit because of weather reasons and they will also look super cute! I also have a little black satchel - like the scarf, everyone has a black bag somewhere. If you haven't and you want a cheap one, I suggest Primark or even better charity shops.
All I have to do is get this skirt, (which I plan on doing on my next pay day) and I will have this complete outfit! Is it weird that I'm actually excited?

Yesterday I went shopping with my mother, (yes I still go shopping with my mother). We went in a couple of charity shops, not really expecting to find anything special, just for a look really. To my surprise, in one I found a black leather look satchel which I loved as soon as I saw it, it was £1.50! I grabbed it and bought it.
Then I went in another and found a vintage look denim jacket that had hardly been worn and it was £3.00! I saw one that looked similar on eBay that I was going to buy for £20.00. This may sound cheesy but finding things that I have wanted for a while at that price made my day!
I seriously suggest for everyone to start "thrifting". Someone inspired me to do it so I'm hoping to do the same.


my desires - part three

First of all I would like to apologize for neglecting my blog recently. I have started a new job and school started this week and I'm starting A Level so I have to put a lot of time into my work now. I will of course try my best to post as often as I can

Now back on to the post. The first item featured is a gorgeous yet weird ring. It's so unusual and I think that's why I love it so much. Turquoise jewellery always seems to catch my eye. It's one of my favourate colours so that may be why. It's very angelic.
Next is a strapless chiffon dress. It doesn't look as good now as it does on the model. I love the ruffles at the top of the dress and how the dress just, falls. The colour is stunning as well and would go well with different skin tones.
Mmmm Chanel. This bag is flawless. Then again, most Chanel bags are flawless. I especially love this one because it's a backpack. I'm obsessed with them at the moment. If I ever buy a Chanel bag, then I will know that I have made it. I am literally in love with the bag, but I hate the price tag!
So at the moment I am addicted to anything camel. This bag comes in a range of different colours but the camel one is my favourate. I like the detail on the bag and the fact that it's not too in your face, it's subtle. This would easily look good with a lot of different outfits and fits right in for the A/W trends.
I am actually tempted to buy these earrings! I love them! They are absolutely gorgeous. They're so simple but they have a sweet vintage touch. The price isn't actually that bad either, which is always good.
Slingbacks seem to be the next big thing for heels. Courts are very popular right now but their a bit samey-same. I love the simplicity of these, just a simple black - yet they're sexy at the same time. These stood out to me because they are so elegant and classy.
Disney Couture is one of my favourate jewellery brands. I am a big, big, Big fan of Disney and to be able to wear the little mermaids castle around my neck is awesome! I'm like a big kid... I love the detail in the pendant! It's just beautiful.
I'm not normally a big fan of jumpsuits, but this one is lovely. It's so floaty and simple. It would be so easy to dress it up or down. Stella McCartney is an amazing designer and here she shows off how something plain and simple can be so enchanting.

shopping list: camel

Camel is the colour that everyone is talking about. Celebrities are constantly seen in the calm and collected colour, Vogue cannot stop talking about it and it is supposed to be the colour of the autumn/winter season along with khaki. I love that it's a natural colour that will go with a lot of clothes in everyone's closet. Coats and accessories are most wanted right now, their in demand more than camel tee's or trousers which are gradually getting more popular. I'd love a pair of tapered camel trousers to be honest, but mostly, I want a camel coat. I love the one featured.

*First are a pair of loafer's. I've never really been fussed on these, but as of lately, they're making me love them. The pair featured are gorgeous, the tassel detail is stunning and makes the loafers stand out. 
*Next is a leather purse which is sooo cheap! And it looks super expensive as well. I like the way the leather is cut and it has a vintage look to it.
*Court shoes are so on trend right now, so a pair of them in the most popular colour of the season will definitely boost your style.
*This trench coat is absolutely gorgeous! Topshop tend to always make amazing trenches but they tend to be a bit pricey. If you want one similar to this but for a fraction of the price, I saw one in H&M for £24.99.
*Everyone should have a tan/camel waist belt. I wear mine with so much it's crazy. This one is once again really expensive so if you want something similar but cheaper, I suggest looking in H&M or Primark.
*I really like this hair band. I'm not sure whether it would suit me or not though because I have brunette hair, I'll have to try it on in store and see what it's like and whether it clashes or not. I like that it's leather instead of a cotton fabric which always looks cheap to me. It's nice to see something different.
*Over the knee socks are essential for A/W! Their constantly on catwalks. If you see some of my previous posts about Zara and Alexander Wang, you can see how much they effect an outfit and give it that extra bit of edge. These socks are beautiful, the print it amazing!
*Last but definitely not least is the leather satchel. I'm a sucker for satchels, but normally I like cross body ones. This one is a shoulder bag and that makes it a little different to every other satchel. I like the straps and buckles on this, once again it gives it a vintage look. 

I honestly cannot choose my favourate items from this list. I literally can't. Their all stunning.

Tan Tassel Trim Loafer - Miss Selfridge - £40.00
Leather Scalloped Edge Purse - ASOS - £15.00

brown wedges

Wedges are so popular right now, especially dark brown ones. They have so many advantages. One - they're comfortable. Two - they look amazing. Three - They go with just about anything! That's without the benefit of making you taller and slimmer. Genius.

The first ones are probably my favourate ones out of them all, the strappy studded ones. I love the chocolate shade of brown and the fact that they look super expensive, like they could be designer. Next are some lower wedges and these are my second favourate. Their very sweet looking and are completely different to all the other wedges shown. My third favourate pair is the buckled wedges. The colour of the photo on the website is a bit lighter than they are in the store - I saw them the other day and they were darker. I like these because like the first pair, they look high fashion and like they could be designer. 

I like all the other wedges too, I put some "boot" wedges on here so there's a bit of variety, and boots can be very uncomfortable but I have a pair of boots like these and like any pair of wedges, they're really nice to walk in. I also like the studded cork wedges a lot - I think they will go lovely with beach wear.
