D-RING & FUR

jumpsuit & fur collar (similar): primark
leather jacket (similar): matalan
trainers: dunlop

Am I the only one that used to wear these shoes in year 4 PE?  Blast from the past! White trainers, d-rings and fur have all be greatly appreciated this season, especially by me. This jumpsuit was a Primark Tottenham Court Road gem, I love the androgynous feel and awkward length (or maybe that's just me being annoyingly tall), paired with the trainers it gives a very relaxed feel. This piece could also be dressed up with a furry clutch, lace up heels, bold lip and probably the same leather jacket, it's so versatile.

THE BLUE STRIPE

shirt: m&s (similar)
trousers: french connection (similar)
heels: new look (similar)
bag: primark

Excuse the grumpy expression, trust me I wasn't as angry as I look, if anything I was happy, I managed to pick up some ridciulous bargains at Primark Tottenham Court Road, whenever I go there it makes me ultra sad that my local Primark is just rubbish (keeping it PG 13) and although I only live 25 minutes from London a train ticket is £19 which unfortunatley means I cannot pop off to London every day I want to go to Primark. Almost all of this outfit (minus the shirt) I've picked up recently in sales. The trousers were £10!!! I feel like a bad blogger because I never got round to doing a haul, amd now I've started wearing the items (sorry I couldn't help myself) it's a bit too late, I don't know, maybe I'll consider doing a quick haul sometime soon. 

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think of this outfit and if you have managed to pick up any crazy bargains from the sales! Don't forget to follow!

#tbt- PARIS

#TBT seems like a fitting excuse to post my four month late Paris photo diary, better late than never eh? I was looking through my pictures the other day and decided to face the daunting task of organising them and picking a few for this post head on. In August I went on a short impromptu trip to Paris and fell in love with the city. It's quite funny how before this I had been to France at least five times, but never made it to Paris city centre, but after going I will definitely be going back!

{queing for the eiffel tower}
When we arrived to Paris city centre we decided to wonder sound for a bit before going to the compulsory destination of the Eiffel Tower. Although people say British people enjoy queuing I was not ammused by the hundreds of people queuing left right and centre, the queue was sooooooooooooo long and there were so many, it was rather confusing. Luckily my mum stayed on the queue for us while we wandered round and bought tour bus tickets for later, meaning we didn't feel it as much.

When I say this is the COLDEST I HAVE EVER BEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE I am not lying, it was deep. Because it was a short trip we wanted to make the most of every hour, as soon as we got out of the Eurostar we headed straight to the city centre and Eiffel Tower, the weather was lovely and actually really warm, but the night- not so much. After the day of exploring the city we got the coach from the arc de triomphe, and toured the city in the night- it was beautiful. Unfortunately I was still wearing the same clothes from earlier and the chilling wind from the top deck was unforgiving.

I hope you enjoyed some of photos from my Paris trip! Have you been to Paris recently? Let me know below and make sure to follow!

GO-TO OUTFIT & UNWANTED WIND

jeans: gap
tshirt, heels (similar) & cardigan (similar): primark

The wind was really trying to kill my vibe and ruin my outfit pictures, I felt as though it would be a few seconds until I'd be holding onto a lamp post for dear life. I don't know whether I was being pedantic but my hair blowing about in the pictures was really bugging me. Don't get me wrong, wanting to post the best quality content is not a bad thing, but I think a lot of the we compare ourselves too much, to people who have professional photographers or blog as a full time job. And as they say 'comparison is the thief of joy'.  So here you are, one of my go-to outfits featuring my hair flying in ten different directions and a very awkward half smile.

What is your go-to outfit? Let me know below, thanks for reading and make sure to follow!
