I had a break from college this week so I finally got around to doing a clear out of my wardrobe. Three full black bags later and this long overdue task was completed. I can now see my clothes again which makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier! During the clear out I found these jeans hiding at the back of my wardrobe. I bought them in French Connection during a trip to London about two years ago and this was only their second outing. It’s funny how you just forget about certain pieces in  your wardrobe when it becomes unorganised. It’s all about the detail with these jeans. That little bit of sparkle takes them from your ordinary pair of jeans and turns them into something a bit more special.

I know it’s not the most appealing task to face, but I strongly advise any of you with overflowing, cluttered wardrobes to sort through the mess… you never know what gem pieces you’ll come across again!

That’s all for today. I hope everyone is having a lovely relaxing Sunday… you know what they say “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content”.

My God does this girl have serious style! If you are ever looking for someone to show you how to wear the mini skirt, well then look no further. Alexa Chung and her extremely long legs pull off this look perfectly. Luckily for Alexa her height allows her the option of wearing flat shoes and still looking as though her legs go on for miles… so not fair! Alexa’s style has a definite 60’s vibe whilst also being quite relaxed and very cool. She is also a bit quirky and sometimes she will accessorise an outfit with weird and wacky accessories which I admire her for. Accessories are the perfect way to add a touch of your personality to an outfit. On that note I leave you for the evening to swoon over these photos. Enjoy!

When I was younger I wouldn’t have been caught dead in a polo neck! It is only in recent times that my love for them has really manifested. Maybe this is because I’m finally realising that looking stylish whilst staying warm is actually a possible combination. Although I will admit that I sometimes still leave the house on cold days without a coat…All in the name of fashion! Please tell me that I’m not the only one who does this? I reassure myself by the fact that I am a still a college student, so naturally my collection of coats hasn’t quite reached the stage where I have one that will match every outfit. Of course some day I will have a closet especially for my extensive coat collection!

I am a big fan of high waisted, skinny jeans and these Topshop ones are the ideal pair. The material is so soft and comfortable, making them the perfect choice for everyday wear.

My old black boots were looking pretty worn recently, so I decided that it was about time to invest in a new pair. I had my eye on this pair for a while, so when I saw that they had gone into the sale and they were in my size (flabbergasting stuff) I quickly snatched them up!

On a final note, where did that weekend go to? I can’t believe it’s already nearing the end of January! That’s all for today . Talk soon Xx Elle

Eleonora Carisi 2Eleonora Carisi, Italian fashion blogger and concept store owner, sported this vibrant look during Milan Spring Summer 2015 fashion week. I know this was a while back now but I only recently came across the look and I just had to share it. I love how she added a fun and youthful vibe to this Roberto Cavalli dress with her choice of accessories. I mean how cool is the red lips clutch? The contrasting pink shoes are the perfect match for this dress and show that Eleonora really knows how to accessorise! I hope you enjoy todays post. Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below. Talk soon Xx Elle

 

 

New Years Eve

DSC08882 DSC08890 DSC08895 DSC08900DSC08892 Here is the outfit I wore on New Years Eve. This year I kept things quite simple and steered clear of the classic New Years Eve sequins. Although of course I did introduce a bit of sparkle to the outfit with my jewellery. I adore these earrings I recently bought in Topshop as they are quite different from my every day go-to pearl earrings, so the change was very welcomed. I am a big leather pants enthusiast as they are just so comfortable yet stylish at the same time. Whether it’s a casual or more dressed up event that you’re attending the leather pant is always a good option! I’m also really into high necked tops at the moment as they provide a bit of extra warmth during these cold days. It was the pattern on this top which initially caught my eye. I also love the transparent detail of this top as it added a ‘going out’ kind of feel to the finished look. That’s all for today. Talk soon Elle Xx
