Fashion Trend: Leopard Print

I've had a busy couple of weeks with Bobble hat day, Christmas jumper day & spring samples arriving at my work Gemini Woman.






But there's always time for retail therapy! Luckily enough for me I work just around the corner from H&M dangerous I know! So when I saw the words sale walking past I had to go in.

I ended up buying this leopard print dress just £7 & a black bag for £5! I do love a bargain! 


I love it because leopard print never goes out of fashion & I can wear it in the day or even at night I decided to wear it for the boyfriends Christmas party where I learnt never drink jagermeister straight! Ha


 
I wore it with tights & my Matalan shoe boots. 

I'm excited for the Christmas sales already a coat is on my top priority for when I go to Paris for New Year's Eve exciting!

The Jumpsuit

On Saturday night I had my Christmas party at Greek restaurant El Greco (amazing food) and as I knew we were going out afterwards I wanted to wear something warmish - the jumpsuit I'm not as brave as I was at uni anymore! 

I got this lovely black jumpsuit from Missguided when they were doing their cyber weekend offers for just £5 - I do love a bargain especially when its back up to £19.99 now! It's great because you can jazz it up with jewellery, belt & a clutch. 




I experimented with gold - new look tribal necklace and heels, primark belt,  accessorise clutch, forever 21 sparkly jacket

The jumpsuit made me feel so tall so definitely a winner I've bought this ASOS monochrome one aswell (£11) might wear it to my boyfriends Christmas party!

Fluffy Blues

My Outfit on Friday was this fluffy H&M jumper which was only £10 when I was shopping in Birmingham not only is it bright but very warm! I went to Wagamamas after work my first experience there it's amazing! I would normally wear a shirt underneath but on this occasion I layered it over a H&M aztec skirt that matched the colour perfectly. 





A new thing I've been doing this AW is layering knee high socks over tights which I thought would look silly but it really doesn't I want to get some spotty tights too! I get sick of wearing jeans all the time when its cold so skirts and tights are a great alternative. If the snow coming our way is correct I may have to get the thermals out ha

Fashion Trend: Winter Gilet

I recently bought this GORGEOUS beige Florence & Fred loop knit Gilet for just £5 with a voucher what a bargain! (They also do it in cream) I know I should be Christmas shopping for others but I cant resist a bargain.

I didn't know what to expect when I went to collect it but I love it the colour goes with lots in my wardrobe and it's so soft and warm.

I styled it for the day with a rust blouse from ASOS, french connection jeans and H&M boots!


For a more dressed up look I styled it with my H&M floral dress (£9.99) that I was lucky to get as it sold out really quick but the Gilet compliments it perfectly and tan glamorous boots that I got last year!









I've had blonde highlights in my hair recently aswell which I love .

Gemini Woman Party Blogger Event

On Thursday I hosted and style my second blogger event with my colleague Holly. I love these photoshoots as we get to pamper and make people feel special for the day!

On this occasion it was bloggers Fiona Avenue 57 and Donna I won't wear sludge brown who were so lovely to talk to and looked amazing in all of Gemini's clothes. They were spoilt for choice! 


In terms of heels we had a lot of ankle boots in brands such as Kennel and Schmenger, Unisa and Peter Kaiser! Sometime I wish I had bigger feet!


The clothes were picked out of our brands French Connection, Great Plains, Noa Noa, Bernshaw, Marella, and the colour tones were very Christmassy reds, golds etc

The backdrop for the shoot was made up of presents, tinsels, baubles so much fun to put together really got me in the Christmas spirit!

 
Both bloggers chose six gorgeous outfits each - my favourite for Donna was the French Connection Imperial wool coat with the great plains blouse and leather skirt.
 
 

 
Fiona looked fab in the Marella red dress perfect for Christmas!



Me and holly are with Donna and Fiona (mind my cheesy grin)

A Berry Autumn

I love the colour berry and these Sandwich Clothing texture print leggings (£59) are so comfy and look fab with lots of clothes you could even dress them up for night with heels, cami and leather jacket. I did get them half price with my work discount but they are different to any I've seen in other shops and they come in a shade of blue.

 

I styled them with a H&M blouse and knitted cardigan which has berry and red around the sleeves and front which keeps me so warm. I'm also wearing H&M brown boots! Can you tell I am a fan of H&M?





I wore this outfit today to walk the dog around Stratford! Luckily it wasn't raining for a change! Have a great weekend :)

I styled them with a grey jumper from H&M (£7) and Primark check scarf (£4) the great thing is that I can even wear these trousers for evening with a black leather jacket and heels.




Matalan have such amazing clothes at the moment including this:

Sport block cardigan £20


Navy Pea Coat £35



Printed shirt £8

Great Plains Fur Gilet

Until recently I used to think Gilets were padded and let's just say hideous! But by adding some faux fur they are definitely the 'it' item of the moment, a halfway between knitwear and outerwear what could be better?!

My style icon Olivia Palermo sure knows how to rock one!

 

 At work Great Plains have designed this stylish Faux Fur buckle version (£100) which I love! It so soft and good quality for the price - an investment piece.




I styled it with a Great Plains embellished collar shirt, (£70) French Connection Jeggings (£70) Pia Rossini hat (£29.50) and Marco Tozzi Boots! (£60)

 
This shirt is great for evenings out aswell due to its Christmas sparkly collar! (swoon)
 
Other Gilets I love are:
 
 Matalan £30

The Outnet £70

Next £30
