STATEMENT BAGS.




I get very excited about the festive season (some might argue too excited), which for me starts dead on 1st October. I'm afraid to say, I am one of those annoying people that likes to listen to band aid and drink mulled wine when it's still 22 degrees out and we haven't changed to clocks yet. For some reason, every year this whirl wind of excitement sends me slightly back to my childhood. I get the urge to hand over my black Zara bucket bag, in favour of something that 12 year old me would have been proud to take to the school disco. This year, my yule tide hysteria is presenting itself in bag form. I just can't get enough of embellishment sequins and faux fur. 

If the mermaid clutch in the middle has caught your eye, you must check out the rest of London designer Hannah Beth Fincham's mermaid collection. Cara Delivigne is among those in her mermaid club and she also creates hand customized pieces including an insanely beautiful range of leather and denim jackets. You'll thank me for introducing you!

ZARA RIBBED KNITTED TROUSERS.







I remember seeing these ribbed jogger style trousers a while back in Zara, then they went out of stock & I really regretted not buying a pair. So the other day when I was doing a naughty bit of online shopping, & I saw they were back in stock, I had to nab a pair. They have several colours, & I very nearly went for grey... but 99.9% of my wardrobe is grey, so I thought i'd push the boat out and go for Navy. Shocking. I am kind of thinking of getting another pair though. They're just so comfy, and I love the high waist and tight ankles. A good Autumn/Winter investment piece I would say!

SECRET SANTA.







So it's getting to that time of year again! I love Christmas shopping & all things festive, so I have popped together a little secret santa post for y'all.
These are all things I would absolutely love to receive myself, and i'm always really surprised about the lovely little bits you can get on the high street for under a fiver! How cute is that little H&M pom pom... I think it's something like £2.99 as well! 
I hope this gives you some nice little ideas of what to buy your secret santa this year... although I don't think making this post has really done me any favours, as I've pretty much convinced myself that I need nearly all of these things now! 

HAPPY SHOPPING!

ROLL NECKS & TOPKNOTS.






Vintage Jeans | H&M Roll Neck | Topshop Boyfriend Jacket | Topshop boots | Primark Belt

So this is just a quick little OOTD post.
 I haven't really brought anything new lately (I'm trying to be good!) so I haven't got anything overly exciting to show you. But I'll you what I am excited for... ROLL NECK SEASON! The best kind of season! I just love a good roll neck. I've never been one for low cut tops, I think if you're small chested then low cut, over sized hanging tops look really cool, but for me I just feel too exposed and not very chic at all... so the higher neck the better for me! I've also come to realise that most of my jeans have rips in, and my knees have been getting chilly. So I have rummaged round and found this vintage pair of jeans that I brought a while ago, for £1.50 may I add!

Over & out

KIMBERLEY COAT.









Missguided Kimberley Premium Coat | H&M Jersey Top  | Vero Moda Jeans | Topshop Heels | Asos Sunnies 

I've been after a camel coat for ages! But after ordering & returning a few, or finding one I love that's about £1000 (I might be exaggerating slightly), I found this Missguided beauty. 
It ticks most of the boxes for me... It's a good length, has tailored shoulders (cocoon coats really don't suit me), it has a nice collar and is the perfect colour.
I must admit I haven't actually brought anything from Missguided for quite a while now, but i'm really impressed with how right they have got this and the quality of it. They're outerwear game is strong!

 I can finally call off the search!

TRIANGL





I've been a fan of Triangl ever since I stumbled across the brand on Instagram a while ago. So I was absolutely chuffed when I had an email from the lovely Emma to see if I would like a set. Obviously I jumped at the chance, and I went for this 'Milly' cut in the colour 'Indiana Ice'.  When it arrived and I opened the amazing box (i'm a sucker for a nice bit of packaging!) it lived up to all my expectations. Everything about it is just perfect, from the fabric to the fit and all the details in between. 
 I'm a huge monochrome fan, but have always steered away from white swimwear in the fear of it going a bit see through in the water... Disaster! Although as Triangl's swimwear is made from a thick high quality neoprene, it's nice and thick. So I think I will be safe. 
Now I just need to get the winter out the way so I can wear this bad boy!

OH SO LOVELY INTIMATES.



If you ever look at my wish list or lust list posts, I can almost guarantee that it will contain a beautiful piece of lacy underwear (probably that I can't afford!) I don't know about you, but I just love how simplistically feminine lingerie is. A good set can transform my mood as soon as I put it on. 
So as you can imagine, I was chuffed when I stumbled across Oh So Lovely Intimates. All the separates, sets and swimwear ranges are designed and created by hand in a home studio in the UK, which I absolutely love. They are made with such thought and care, which I think is a really special thing in the days of high street and disposable fashion. The price tags blew my mind a bit as well, the beautiful bra's are around £30! Insanely good for something so personally hand crafted. 

I hope you love the brand as much as I do!
