Christmas Day

What I'm wearing:
| Dress - Missguided | Boots - Lavish Alice | Body Chain & Rings - Pixie Lott for Rock 'N Rose | Necklace - Ebay |

Okay so I'm so (not) sorry for the picture overload but since it's Christmas... it's allowed, okay?! If you can't guess from some of the pictures, I got a new camera for Christmas, YES. I got the Canon 1100d and I am SO happy with it. I knew I was going to get it as it was something I had asked for a few months prior so I literally could not wait until Christmas day to get my hands on it. I can assure you that there will be a TON of new outfit posts in the new year. 
I won't go into all of my presents as I don't want to bore you all but I was also lucky enough to receive IT by Alexa Chung. I've scanned through it (Ha) and I have to say, it does look so inspiring but that could be just down to the fact that I find Alexa inspiring anyway, I do love a bit of the Chung (I highly doubt that anyone has said that - ever - cringing right now) and plus, how pretty does it look?

Anyway, all of that aside, I do hope you all had a lovely and fun filled Christmas with all of your loved ones. I for one hope the festive spirit continues into the new year, Christmas is just such a happy time for me and I hope it is for all you lovely people too. :)

Lime Time | OOTD

I adore the colour of this jumper from h&m. It's such a lovely material too - neither too thick or thin... I also really like how it's kind of sheer, adding a black crop top underneath just adds definition to the lime jumper.  

As soon as I laid eyes on these daisy shorts in Primark a few weeks back - I knew I just had to have them. They were exactly what I was looking for, fitting in with that whole 'dark florals' trend for autumn/winter. The design and flimsy material of the shorts makes them flow so nicely, so much so that I almost mistook them for a skirt at first glace.
I personally think that these shorts look like something that you'd expect to find in Topshop, especially with the sheer layer underneath the daisy pattern - very topshop-esque.
With them being from Primark however, the shorts were an amazing £10... I couldn't leave them at that price could I?! What's even more unbelievable is that I popped into Primark the other day and now they've gone down to an amazing £3... I mean IT'S £3?! If you happen to stumble upon these shorts with their ridiculously reduced price tag, I think it would be wise to snap them up while you can - there's no room for hesitation ay?

Wishlist | Missguided & Rare London

Missguided is just too good at the moment. Every time I browse their new in section, I add more things to my imaginary wishlist. 
One trend I've been loving recently is sequins, hence the sequin flower crop top and rose gold sparkly dress featuring in this wishlist post (both of which I absolutely adore). In the past, I've always edged away from sequins because I thought they looked tacky and kind of cheap... though maybe that was just because I may have overdosed on them in my primary school years.
I've been eyeing up that black PVC skirt for awhile too - it's only £19.99 which is totally justifiable right?! I think so.

I love a good playsuit and with Rare London offering an exclusive blogger discount for you all to use when purchasing either a jumpsuit or playsuit, I thought it was only fitting to show you my picks out of their range

The discount code gives you 15% off all jumpsuits and playsuits on the Rare London online store.
It is only valid until the end of the December so use it now so you don't miss out!:


Grunge It Grey | ootd

I miss my pink hair. Not that I had it for long at all, the bleach london dye only lasted about 3 days but it looks so cool in these pictures, I guess I kind of forgot all about it. It's a shame we're not allowed 'colourful' hair in my sixth form or I'd consider doing it permanently - or even going pastel, ah, I absolutely adore that whole hair look.

We all know how much I love the whole grunge/90s style... yep, I still haven't grown out of that one. Sometimes I wonder whether I just imagine that almost every outfit I throw together has that 'grunge essence' but anyhow, I try to channel it through most of my outfits.

I've always preferred simpler items such as the grey skater skirt and the purple speckled crop top in this ootd. I love how they both look kind of effortless when pieced together in an outfit yet somehow it isn't all left looking too plain. I love how the cut out boots and black leather jacket give the look an edge.

I do tend to have favourite outfits of mine without me realising, and this is definitely one of them.

October Favourites & Haul

Okay so this is really quite late but I've been meaning to upload this for the past week. Better late than never right?! Another haul video but as I've included my October Favorites, it makes it okay? In my mind anyway. Haul videos are always my favourite to watch anyway. It's a bit of a longer video than usual but I hope that doesn't matter.

Embellish The Dark | House Of Fraser Denim Blogger Challenge

When I heard about the House Of Fraser Blogging Challenge, I knew I had to take part, not only would I be in the chance of winning a £75 House Of Fraser Voucher but I absolutely love putting items of clothing together to create a possible outfit, it sounds slightly strange but it excites me a great deal.

Recently, I haven't been wearing jeans as much, but when I do, it has to be a pair of high waisted skinny jeans, they seem to go with everything and I love how they're so flattering. I paired the jeans with a black and gold embellished top to dress them up, I love how the top would be the stand out item of the outfit. For outwear, I opted for a classic black leather jacket with a twist, you can't go wrong there can you ay? I finished the look off with a pair of chunky ankle boots, I haven't been without mine this past month. I think this particular pair add a grunge feel to the outfit, I don't think I need to stress any more on this blog how much I adore that look. Lastly, an outfit is not complete without a few key accessories such as this DKNY shoulder bag, I think the bottle green colour ties in nicely with the darkness of the rest of the outfit without making it all too monochromatic. Even though the top is a statement in itself, I thought adding a necklace would add something extra to it all, plus, it subtly draws a bit of colour into the look. 

How I Style Christmas Jumpers | Boohoo

| Christmas Jumper (Out of stock - sadly) |

Christmas jumpers aren't typically something I would lust over but ever since Boohoo contacted me about featuring a 'How I Style Christmas Jumpers' post on my blog, my love for festive knitwear has been ever increasing.

Since it's well into November now and with ever other advert on tv being Christmas themed (I'm not complaining, I seriously love it.) I think it's only appropriate to get into the Christmas spirit and what better way to dive into the festivities other than throwing on a Christmas Jumper?! 

In my mind, I'd never been particularly fond of Christmas jumpers purely because I had no idea what to pair them with. It wasn't until I was browsing for items to style the red reindeer and snowflake jumper with that I realised I had multiple possible outfits that I could potentially style this jumper with. I have to admit, it was harder than I expected to choose between the different combinations. 

I finally settled on the one outfit that I could personally see myself wearing on a cold winter's day (with tights of course!).
I'm not usually one for jackets in any other colour than black in fear of it looking tacky but I really love the look of this white PU jacket (and it's on sale!) I think it ties in well with the jumper. For the bottoms, I went with a skort. I don't actually own a skort but I desperately want to purchase one, I think they just look so amazing paired with almost anything, especially in a classic black. Of course I had to finish the outfit with a pair of chunky cut out boots, they've been a huge staple in my wardrobe over the past month, I've barely worn any other footwear.
