Bye Bye Winter!

Springtime weather is definitely on its way and I am totally ready for everything that spring has to offer! But as the dark, cold winter days draw to an end, wouldn’t it be nice to take advantage of a few last minute treats that only winter really offers?  The cold season really isn’t all that bad… so here’s a list of things to do to make the most of the last few weeks of the cold weather!

  1. Cosy Movie Day

You can have a movie day anytime of the year, but isn’t it just all the more cosy when the rain is falling outside your window, whilst you are safely cocooned in a duvet with your favourite film playing and a box of chocolates within arm’s length? Let’s grab our duvets and dedicate a day to our favourite films and worship the art of cosiness. Thank you winter for teaching me to be cosy!

  1. A Walk in the Park

Ironically, a walk in the park is not the easiest thing to do in winter (it’ll be a walk in the park…haha I’m hilarious.) But, there is something just a little more magical about the outdoors in the winter months. The crunch of the leaves, the fresh cool air and the peaceful sound of people hiding inside (they’re probably having a Cosy Movie Day…) Parks get so much busier when it starts getting warmer, so lets take our gorgeous winter boots and coat down the park for a little piece of tranquillity. Besides, your winter style deserves to be shared!

  1. Grab yourself a Coffee

A personal winter favourite of mine – sitting in the window of a coffee shop of your choice, watching the world go by. The big selling point to this one is that you a) get a hot drink and b) get to be cosy whilst having a front row seat to the town centre  – people watching at it’s finest.

  1. Pamper Day

If you really are too scared to venture into the cold, why not make the most of your home comforts? Give yourself a pamper with a face masking, nail painting, blow-drying evening at home! After all, what better way to get over the winter blues than treating yours truly to a little bit of TLC…

  1. Plan your summer

They say summer bodies are made in the winter, but so are summer plans! Book a holiday, book a festival – start planning your summer fun! From the wardrobe you’re going to slay, to the day to day adventures that you want to enjoy… Summer is made for adventure.

Fashion By The Numbers

£50 overdrawn – bailed myself out… £60 overdrawn – #OopsIDidItAgain tumblr_mco2wr7vth1qgiq62o1_500

Oh January – you’re killin’ us! How are we supposed to enjoy the sales and fund our ‘New Year, New Me’ goals when our empty piggy banks are still crying from our Christmas splurges?

The key is in the basics of it all. Why do we always wear the same things when there is a tonne of cute clothing at the back of the wardrobe?

Because we haven’t cracked the idea of versatility. Sigh.

Why do we buy 2 different tops when you could buy 1 that can be styled in 2 different ways, saving you half the cost?

This  February (yes, January is a total write off for me…) I’m going back to the basic mechanics of my wardrobe. Staples. Individual pieces that can be switched up. Versatile shopping! 

Maybe I’ll buy another yellow rain coat, or another pair of stripy trousers. That’s cool wth me, I need the odd random piece in that closet o’mine. However, the fact of the matter is; maybe I could buy something to go with the trousers, which can also be easily worn with other pieces in my wardrobe?

So lets get the basics down to a tee. That way, when we’re crying into our penniless piggy banks, we can still be smoking’ hot without any effort, switching between the most basic of styles for the biggest of impacts.

With this framework in mind, here are a few of my favourite staples right now on Boohoo.com that won’t break the bank and definitely give effortless style…

1.

The midi dress – the apple to the pie. Get the midi! I love that a midi dress can look cool with trainers or boots, being worn effortlessly to work or out in town. I need this bad boy.

2.

This beautiful top is so adaptable for easy style, day or night. Wear it to work with a pair of trousers or on a Saturday with a pair of jeans! Adaptable? Yes?!

3.

I’ve had a break through recently with the bodysuit hype. They can literally change a pair of trousers or a skirt – they are one of the biggest staples you can get right now for your stapler. And what could be more perfect than a turtleneck bodysuit?! Smart casual everyday.

4.

Swishy Swing dresses are cute with trainers and flats and are easily styled with a statement jacket or blazer. Effortless, again. Yet so versatile!

5.

T-shirt dresses have always been so cute. Again, change what you have on your feet and your choice of jacket for completely different styles. One dress, multiple styles.

Sole Sisters

Oh my. It is super chilly and our feet are the only things we want on show right now because the rest of us is covered up in scarfs, coats and hats – so let’s slay with our sole sisters…here’s my two faves this season.

My go-to booties this season are these cute little ankle boots from Boohoo – I adore the gold details, which are perfect for the crossover between Autumn/Winter styling. Plus they’re super comfy. Oh I would walk 5,000 miles… in these boots.And my second favourites this season are these bad boys. Talk about chunky monkey slaying vibes. They are technically a sandal but who said sandals couldn’t come out in the cold? Nobody.

 I love the details on the ankle of these beauties, giving a little bit of a boot illusion even if we’re classing them as a heeled sandal… they look super cute with skinny jeans, velvet disco pants and even a skater dress. Talk about versatility.

Let me know what your feet are slaying this season! And if you like my faves, here’s the deets:

Chop Chop…

I have a little something to tell you all… I went for it. I took a big step, and went for it. What did I go for? Well.

I started the day as a devil dog… note the length of my hair (Hint Hint)

Then I went on my travels and… Chop chop! All gone!Today I had a super chop of my long long locks, and damn it feels good. My hair had grown to the middle of my back and had recently been bringing me down (both physically and mentally!)
With so much thick hair, I’ve really been struggling to keep it styled. So I decided, lets chop it off.

I hope you like it!

Embroidery Baby

I absolutely adore the embroidery trend right now. I think it is absolutely adorable!

Embroidery boots, dresses, skirts, tops, bags…. it is a trend hitting everywhere, and is super versatile even when it is so simple.

I particularly love my boohoo shift dress that I recently purchased – it is really easy to dress up or down. 

Me and Ben visited Cadbury World on Sunday and I opted for a little Sunday elegance, wearing my shift dress, black tights and a pair of black trainers. To dress it up, little black boots would do!

And of course, a little black leather jacket was essential in this super bitter October…

Smoulder with your Shoulders

Come on ladies, let’s get your shoulders out!

I absolutely love the “off the shoulder” trend that is currently in stores right now because it is the perfect style when crossing over from Summer to Autumn.

There is something super elegant about showing off your shoulder line in a cute blouse, which can lead to you looking absolutely smouldering this Autumn.

I adore this zig-zag patterned blouse from Boohoo – I had so many compliments when I first wore it to the office! 

The best thing about this look is it is not only secretly sexy, but extremely versatile. Wear it with skinny trousers and dollies to the office, or your favourite pair of jeans and a pair of heeled booties for the weekend!
