WINTER FOOTWEAR

This post was inspired by one of my lovely readers who is in need of some Winter shoe inspiration! She requested a post on what to look for and where to go to find some ‘must have’ winter footwear.

Finding that perfect pair of Winter shoes can be a challenge for even the most seasoned shopper, so I have put together a few styles that are currently on my wishlist and can be found on some of my favourite online shopping websites – all with an extensive selection to browse through! (see links below)

I hope it helps! xx

2014 JACKET TRENDS

As much as I love summer, I have noticed that the temperature is beginning to fall which has got me (secretly) excited because it means I can start thinking about my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. When these cooler months roll around, there is nothing more crucial than that outer layer, that outfit topper – the jacket.

I have put together a collection of my favourite jacket trends from the runway and some similar picks to help you master each look. Yip, I’ve got you covered (pun intended).

LUPITA NYONG’O OSCARS INSPIRED

It’s common for fashion loving Oscar viewers to have a number of looks they adore on the red carpet and I’m usually part of that majority. But for the 2014 Oscars there was one look that I loved so much, as soon as I saw it I completely lost interest in everything else and spent the rest of my afternoon intermittently glancing at the television screen with my main focus on Google, where I searched frantically for more picture of the heavenly dress and the celebrity who did it such justice! It was, Lupita Nyong’o in Prada.

Now, it’s common knowledge that Lupita Nyong’o never looks short of amazing, but WOW. Such a beautiful dress on such a stunning lady! I have always loved the colour “duck egg blue”, as Ryan Seacrest so brilliantly described it, and this dress rekindled my obsession, while confirming that yes it is indeed my all time favourite colour (for now). So with this in mind, I have been on a mission to add more bluey tones to my wardrobe and have put together my current duck egg blue inspired wish list to share with you.

CHANEL ESPADRILLES

After seeing these stylish yet comfortable beauties on some of my fashion favourite bloggers such as Song of Style and Sincerely Jules, I fell head over heels and knew I had to have them.

So, after a lot of time day dreaming about how many different outfits I could wear them with and carefully saving my pennies, I am now the proud new owner of a pair of my very own Chanel Espadrilles (Squeal).
