6am OOTD | 19.11.13

I feel like being a bit braver than usual with this OOTD post – after all the photos were taken at nearly 6am this morning! (Please be kind with comments.)


I am a morning person generally, but as it’s been getting colder and colder lately my outfit choices have become less exciting due to the fact that I don’t want to freeze shortly after leaving the confines of my flat.

One absolute must for me in the winter time are athletic leggings – absolutely amazing for keeping you warm!

I’ve had this pair for ages from Nordstrom (Zella brand) but Uniqlo also have some excellent quality ones for a reasonable £12.90 (available here)

Shirt: H&M (similar here)

Jumper: H&M (similar here on sale!) (Or from Missguided here)

Heeled Chelsea Boots: M&S (available here)

What was everyone wearing today?

Casual Saturday Wearing Zara & ASOS – 17.11.13

Manchester has been quite chilly lately, but yesterday was a bit warmer than usual so I was able to get away with less layers than usual.

I went for a cosy knit with leather leggings as I was due to meet up with friends (for a girly cake filled afternoon) later after running errands in town. I’ve been wearing this wraparound coat from Zara a lot lately as I think it dresses up an outfit and makes me feel a bit more put together.

I’m a huge fan of Zara as I find the quality and uniqueness of their clothing a bit more than other high street shops. I swear anytime I go in there, I find loads of items that I can’t wait to add to my wardrobe. Thank goodness the Zara in Manchester is open again!

Unexpected Find: M&S Chelsea Boots

I struggle to find shoes in larger sizes from a number of my favourite high street stores. Thankfully M&S came to my rescue a few weeks back. I now practically live in my pair of Chelsea boots.

They’re comfortable, good quality, waterproof (after all I do live in Manchester), and go with just about everything I own. Plus, they’re the perfect amount of heel for an ankle boot meaning I can wear them for long lengths of time.

I highly recommend having a browse around the M&S shoe department if you’re in the market for a new pair of shoes (especially for those size 8+).

Weekend Leather & Jewels – 08.11.13

Leather trousers are one of my favourite things. The style possibilities are endless: edgy, chic, glam, or preppy. [Just be to sure to buy a pair that doesn’t look too pleather-y]. Obsessed with this pair from The Row (if only they lived in my wardrobe!)

Feeling a bit on the preppy side after finding this lovely J.Crew jumper (covet!).
