Over the Winter months I find it far too easy to sit myself down into a fashion rut. With no high school Mean Girls kicking me off their table if I’m not wearing pink or following the rules, blacks and greys become go to colours, and chucking on sweaters on a daily basis seems totally acceptable. Sweaters are super cosy and can look great over the colder months, but right now I’m over it. The days are slowly but surely staying lighter for longer, and although Spring still seems so distant, I can’t help but feel hopeful in the knowledge that when it eventually rolls around, it will be brighter and nicer and better.
Although I’m no fan of the cold, Autumn and Winter are great months for cozying down. Sweaters are pretty much essential to every outfit and here are the ones I’ve invested in for this seasons ‘sweater weather’. The last look book I featured was definitely for the warmer weather so I thought it was time for another!
You may have already gathered that I’m a sucker for anything Disney. I was far too excited when I heard that they were teaming up with Pandora! I’m a tiny bit late on the hype here, but only because I wanted to wait until I had viewed the collection in person. I wanted to make initial purchases until I spoke about it.
Fun fact; Disney is one of my favourite things in the world. I’ll try and get my hands on pretty much anything Disney themed, and as I’m sure you know, Primark has been absolutely killing it recently. They have some really cute Disney bits and bobs for a super affordable price. They’re much more affordable than the new Disney Pandora Collection anyway. Here are a few things that I’ve managed to get my hands on and have been loving recently.
I’m a very firm believer in drinking elaborate cocktails, impractical heels and wearing the sexy underwear, all as often as possible. Its interesting how much doing these things, amongst others, can boost my self confidence. No one else knows that I’m wearing sheer lingerie under my clothes but they don’t need to, I’m wearing it for me. These a a few reasons why I’ve fallen for Empress Mimi.
I recently returned from a trip to Mallorca which you can read a little more about in my September Favourites. I wanted to share with you the fashion that I took along with me.
I discovered my love for fine jewellery just before my sixteenth. My Mum took me into an antique shop in Ely and asked me to pick something out for my birthday. I received the gold diamond ring that I had chosen in a beautiful burgundy leather box fittingly trimmed with gold. Firstly, I was terrified. I couldn’t even keep a pair of earrings safe for more than a week before I lost one if not both. How was I supposed to look after something this valuable? I soon decided though, that it was pointless having something so special if I was never going to wear it. Six years later it’s rarely, if ever, removed from my finger. Since then, I’ve placed a sentimental importance on jewellery which has seen me appreciate and invest in it in an entirely different way.
