Blouse - Oasis
Jumper - Oasis
Leggings - H&M
Shoes - New Look
Ahh I don't think anybody knows how much i love snakeskin! I love the print so when I saw this blouse I had to have it. Would have preferred if it was like a more browny goldy creamy kinda print but the grey still looked nice. Thought I'd make it quite preppy with the jumper and obviously the pu leggings were a must with the whole look! Went with the small wedges as they're easier to walk with :) I went with pink lipstick as I prefer it with the grey/silver shades.
What do you guys think?
And how were all of your christmas celebrations?

Top - Vintage
Skirt - Oasis
Today I was in a rush so it was kind of a basic outfit! Went with this vintage leotard which I love because if you know me you know I love anything monochrome especially when it's vertical stripes! Paired it with a basic jersey maxi skirt which has an elastic band at the waist to show it off that little bit more! Sadly as I was rushing I forgot to add the accessories needed, but I would of went with a nice statement necklace :)
But I can not believe i've reached 100 followers via GFC I'm so happy and this means there should be a giveaway soon!!
Thank you for all your support!

Top - Oasis
Trousers - Oasis
Shoes - Oasis
Hat - H&M
Yesterday I went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and this is what i wore! As we weren't quite sure on what we were doing I didn't know what to wear it was either cinema and dinner or Winter Wonderland so I went for dressy but comfortable just in case! I went with this glittery top from Oasis. Normally i'm not a very glitter sort of person especially silver as I don't wear much silver but I absolutely loved this especially as it has shoulder pads too!! So I decided to pair it with my Oasis velvet trousers. If you've been reading my recent posts you would know I have an obsession with velvet currently! So this is one of the many pieces from my velvet collection. I love these as they have a red silky kinda piping round the top and pockets. With trousers and jeans I feel I have to roll them up or I look to short, the disadvantages of being 5 ft 2 I guess! Still I think them being rolled up still makes the look quite preppy especially with the hat and lace up shoes! You guys probably think Oasis is one of my favourite shops as most of my clothes seem to be from there! I just seem to find really nice pieces from there and i've noticed not many people I know actually shop there so it allows me to stand out and be a little unique!
I can't believe Gossip Girl has finished! Anyone else traumatised by this!? On the brighter note Christmas is now only 4 days away I can't wait to see what i've got :)

"You Better Shape Up...For The Party Season" - So New Look currently have a competition going on where bloggers pick a dress and style it for party inspiration. The catch is that it has to be a dress which you think would suit your body shape! They've given 5 different types pear shaped, straight up & down, apple, plus-sized and hour glass. Personally I find my body shape quite weird as i'm quite big on my upper half even though weirdly it doesn't show! And i'm not small on my bottom but i'm not big either. So I would say i'm like an in between pear shaped and hour glass but mainly i'm going to go with hour glass :) So working with this i've always seemed to notice that skater styled dresses and skirts really flatter my figure. So when searching through all their dress this skater stood out. I love the colour and the fact that it was velvet just sold me further. I'm currently very very veeeerrry obsessed with velvet :) I seem to find skater dresses flattering as they do my top half justice as well hide the little growing belly that I have and to add it shows of my little waist. I'm sure you guys have also noticed i'm very stud obsessed so i went with these heels and clutch as they go perfectly together and black goes with everything so thought it would cute with the dress. I love statement jewellery so i was going to go with a statement necklace as the dress is quite plain however when I saw the cuff I thought putting one on each arm would party it up! So i went with a simple long cross necklace and little studs. Personally I think a nice little head chain would look so cute with the look but sadly New Look didn't have any online!
What do you guys think of my choice?

Playsuit - Oasis
Heels - Vintage
As you can see i've gone with the look of less is more! I decided not to wear any jewellery as to me it seemed more elegant without all the bling. The playsuit is a lovely material its so soft and silky and I felt like a million dollars wearing it. Sadly I can't show you the tie up at the back, it's extra long and thick so you can do a big bow which I thought added to the cutest. This little number was an absolute bargain as it was passed down to me for free :)
The lyrics in the title of this post is The XX - Angels which is a song i've been in love for ages!! Like absolutely ages and just never knew the name. I remembered to shazam it today and I was like exceptionally happy for ages!! Now you know it's going to get overplayed :)
I really need to start doing some more day wear outfits they all just seem to be evening!! So my sincerest apologies for that!
Hope you're all well :)

Dress - Miss Selfridge
Jacket - Zara
Heels - Vintage
Clutch - Primark
Anklet - Portugal Stall
I recently attended my managers wedding reception, it was my first time going to a non-indian wedding. So I absolutely had no idea on what to wear!? I literally asked everyone and also the other invitees which I knew and they all basically said a pretty dress. I've had this Miss S number for a while and haven't had the chance to showcase it. This seemed to be the perfect occasion its and elegant yet cute dress. I love the sleeve detailing as it puffy and then cuffs and the little bows on the waist! When I saw it on the hanger I thought nope it really isn't going to suit me but trust me it's extremely flattering! Went with my basic heels and clutch as red and black always look cute together and i love getting gold studs into anything and everything. The leather jacket made it look a little more chic!
Sorry for the lack of posts i've finally finished my first term of my second year of uni and am now home for 3 weeks. So what does that mean? PLENTY MORE POSTS!!
Hope you're all well :)

Playsuit - Mango
Boots - River Island
Cuff - Vintage
Jacket - Zara
Earrings - Primark
Sunday night was my work christmas do, we went to Smollenskys in Strand. It was like a bar plus restaurant quite a nice place. They're cocktails were amazing I was addicted to the berrilicious which I regretted the next day when I struggled to get up. I decided to go quite dinner but able to go clubbing in as the plan for after was to go to Aura but I didn't really feel up for it when it go to the time to leave. So I went for this Mango playsuit I love it as I find it quite flattering it goes in and out at the right places so it did extremely well in hiding my bloatedness. The print is gorge too! Well it is to me as i'm totally addicted to monochrome currently all I seem to wear is black and white. I find this funnier because while writing this I am wearing black and white!! Now these boots aren't actually mine I've 'borrowed' them from my sister they're gorgeous she got them from River Island. They're the perfect winter boots in my eyes, they have a zip detailing on the inside and outside which I Love! To accessorise I went with my vintage silver cuff which has a big red stone in the middle. Sorry for the photos, still relying on my Iphone so you guys can't see the details! For earrings I went for simple pearls, I find them so elegant!! And to save me from the cold I went to my beautiful Zara studded leather!!
Anyone else been out for their work dos? Would love to see your outfits
Hope you're all good

Top - H&M
Skirt - Warehouse
Earrings - Asos
Ring - Topshop
Quick outfit post from the other night! I am totally loving acid was these days, literally just bought a pair of jeggings and jeans but they look like the same thing! As you can see I get a bit excited on pay day! Absolutely love statement jewellery so you can understand why I bought these earrings. They're the biggest touch to the whole outfit! However I did think maybe a necklace would be too much.
Sorry for the short post my last assignment is friday and trust me i'm so excited for the 4 weeks of freedom!!
Hope everyones good and is anyone else getting a little excited on payday?
