Feeling Festive

MISSGUIDED coat

PRIMARK top & jeans

ALDO boots

H&M bag

Hi friends. So you'll never guess what I did yesterday? I bought and decorated my Christmas tree. I'm not sure what came over me because normally I don't put the tree up until just a couple of weeks before the big day, but this year I couldn't even wait until December. Madness! There's something so magical about the Christmas tree though, isn't there? When it's starting to get dark and gloomy in the afternoons but you don't want to give in and shut the curtains and put the lights on, having a little glowing tree in the corner of the room is very comforting and cosy. Bliss. In other news, I've finally bought my first Christmas present of the year! The ball is officially rolling and now I have big plans to buy some mince pies and a tin of Quality Street.

So, moving on from Christmas, what do you think of my jeans? I bought them for £7 from Primark and ripped them myself with a pair of scissors. I think they turned out quite well and I really like the simple symmetrical rips. I paired them with a simple long sleeve crop top and my big fluffy Missguided coat for when I went to London the other day for the New Look press day. After seeing this coat on the gorgeous Mel I just had to have it for myself. The collar is the biggest, fluffiest thing I've ever seen, so I don't think I'll be needing a scarf this winter!

Have a great weekend my lovelies!

Current Obsessions: Shenae & Josh


For the longest time Shenae Grimes-Beech (AKA Annie from 90210) has been my number one style icon. She used to run her own blog where she shared photos of her outfits and trends that she'd been loving, but after a while of reading it religiously it seemed to disappear off the internet-map. Sigh. Anyway, Shenae's style is pretty cool. She rocks denim cut offs and band T-shirts like no other and I totally dig the laid back, rock star, vibes that accompany all her outfits, whether she's dressing up or down.

Since getting hitched to the gorgeous model Josh Beech, the stylish couple have joined forces and created a blog called Two Halves. You can imagine my excitement that Shenae is back in the blogosphere, and with the added bonus of her lovely husband it's a pretty great website. They combine their passions for music and fashion and generally just looking pretty to create some awesome content. So yep, right now I can't get enough of them.

Who are some of your favourite style icons?

Off Duty Style

TOPSHOP coat
PULL&BEAR playsuit
PRIMARK super cosy tights
ALDO boots
H&M bag
ASOS sunglasses

Hello! Do you like my leafy pictures? It is a beautiful sunny day today so I couldn't resist popping outside for some outfit snaps. It's my day off so I wandered down to the shops and may or may not have bought some new Christmas baubles and a Christmas Costa. Honeycomb hot chocolate to be exact. Ahh, perfection.

Also, yep, wearing tartan again. Just forget everything I said in this post about being bored of that particular trend. Yes, I still think it's overworn. But I just couldn't resist this pretty little playsuit in Pull & Bear, and when I was offered it as an additional Birthday present, well, I wasn't going to say no was I?

I'm also wearing my beautiful new boots that have featured in many of my blog posts recently, but now here they are in all their glory. I got them for my Birthday and I think they are just the most perfect Autumn boots. Gorgeous colour, pretty cut outs and buckles, a low chunky heel. What more does one want in a boot??

I hope you're having a wonderful week. Lots of love.

What I'd Wear | Amsterdam Fashion Week

I was invited by fashionchick.co.uk to enter their competition to win an all expenses paid trip to Amsterdam Fashion Week, simply by sharing with you all what I'd wear if I were to win! Recently I've been making plans for where I want to travel to in the next couple of years, and Amsterdam is definitely on that list. So you can imagine it would be a dream come true to win a two night stay in the beautiful city, especially during the best week of the year! 
     
 
What I'd Wear | Amsterdam

I'm starting this off with a bit of colour co-ordination. An all black outfit is simple and chic, just add a luxurious boyfriend coat to keep off the January chill with some downright perfect ankle boots and.. ta-dah! You've got a perfect Fashion Week look. 

Note: I feel I must stress that high stiletto heels are only for the professionals. You will be on your feet all day figuring out the city and running from show to show, so how anybody does that in 5inch heels I'll never know. Us mere mortals should stick to flats or chunky low heels at the most. Trust.  

What I'd Wear | Amsterdam #2

My second outfit is a pretty girly one. You guys know I love the androgynous vibe of my leather trousers, and combining masculine with feminine pieces is all the rage right now. Just throw this pink fluffy coat over your shoulders and strut around pretending to be part of the fash pack. Sorted!

What I'd Wear | Amsterdam #3

My last look is a little bit edgier. After falling out of love with tartan for a while I spotted this playsuit last weekend and fell in love all over again. For Fashion Week I'd pair it with tights (because.. brrr) and chunky ankle boots. Chuck on a cropped leather jacket and some dark lippy and you've got a laid back, grungy outfit. I'm channeling Kate Middleton by 'recycling' my hat and bag from the first outfit because why not?
 
So there you have it... I hope you liked having a peek at what I'd wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week. Please let me know which outfit is your favourite!

Chartreuse


H&M jumper

PRIMARK skirt and shoes

ZARA bag

I am very undecided about this skirt. It seemed like such a good idea at the time, quilted pleather skirt for £10? Yes please! However, in reality it's pretty awful quality. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting much, but I suppose because I've been so impressed with other Primark stuff this season I thought I'd feel the same about this piece. Sadly it has just not been the case. The material is very thin and plasticy making it look as cheap as it was. Ugh. Don't you just hate it when that happens?

On the plus side it doesn't look half bad in the dim light paired with a statement bag and a chartreuse woolly jumper. I guess what I've styled it with takes the attention away a little! I'm not fully sold on the whole idea yet, but what do you guys think? Take it or leave it?

Anyway, on a brighter note, it's my Birthday this weekend! The celebrations officially start tonight, and I'm heading out for some sophisticated cocktails with some of my favourite girls. I won't be getting too drunk though because I have a lot planned for the next few days and I can't wait.

I'll probably be absent from the blog now until next week, so try not to miss me too much!

Lots of love,

Sarah...x

Autumn Update



Hi gorgeous people. I thought I'd do a quick Insta update because I haven't done one in so long and I've been feeling lots of lovely Autumn vibes over on Instagram lately. I just absolutely love this time of year, with my Birthday coming up, Christmas on the way, Halloween, bonfire night, pretty leaves, new fashion and beauty collections. There's always so much to look forward to! I just wanted to take a minute to breathe and be thankful for all the wonderful things happening in my life right now.

Whilst you're here, I'd love to know your opinions on which types of blog posts are your faves. Do you prefer my outfit posts, beauty reviews, lifestyle posts, etc? Please do a girl a huge favour and comment below letting me know what you'd like to see more of!

Lots of love,

My Ear Piercings


Hey there! Today I thought I'd write a quick post about my various ear piercings. I went through a phase when I was 18 where I wanted lots of weird and wonderful piercings, some of which I kinda regret, but most of which I still have and love today! 

Most of the piercings on my ears didn't hurt very much at all. The only one that was a real killer was my scaffolding (the bar that goes across the top of my left ear). That one hurt a lot at the time, but now I forget it's even there! It's probably my favourite piercing, so I'm really glad I've got it. The one that I regret getting done was my surface hip piercing (I'll let you google that one). Again, I loved it at the time, but it only lasted about 6 months and it used to get caught on stuff a lot. Ouch! It's also left a teensy little scar which is annoying, but should fade in time. 

I am getting the itch for a new piercing now though! I'm not sure what I want to get yet, but it'll probably be another ear one. I'm not really into facial piercings at all, ie nose, lips, etc. I prefer ones that can be hidden by my hair or clothes, should I want to hide them. What do you think? Any ideas?

I hope you enjoyed this little post.
