Embellished Collars and Culottes

Since my last outfit post I have had my hair cut into a short bob which I absolutely needed and I couldn't wait to show off to you all. So of course I had to take some new outfit shots but being winter here in the UK it was freezing cold! I may not look cold in these pictures but my friend Hannah and I shot this outfit in 2 degrees!

Before I start rambling on about the weather...the outfit in question is a beautiful grey sweater (£22) from Blue Vanilla which has a white embellished collar complimenting my white watch from Johnny Loves Rosie. If you follow me on Instagram you may see a lot of pictures of collared tops/dresses I absolutely love them, they're just so cute! 
I find that embellishment details add subtle bling to your outfit but don't go over the top.

Blue Vanilla is a London fashion brand you may have come across in New Look or Debenhams, which is where I discovered them, but they do have their own website too. Whether your looking for a party dress or your winter essentials they have it all and the best thing of all it's so reasonable priced. 

I have styled the snugly, soft jumper with culottes from Boohoo (£6), I used to think they could only be worn for Spring/Summer but then throw on a pair of neutral tights and your ready to go. I also like wearing them to work too. 

Which is your favourite culottes or collars?
