Pyjama Suit - River Island
Bag - Celine Trio Bag
Heels - ZARA

…After dabbling with various pyjama inspired looks in the past i decided the trip to Venice would be the perfect time to commit. 
You have no idea how many strange looks i got but on the plus it was the most comfortable sight seeing attire ever!
I love the fine details this suit has, the contrasting white trim, tassle trouser tie and the pocket embroidery all add to pyjama perfection.

This was the final day in Venice which was mainly spent picking up last minute souvenirs. Any coffee lovers planning a trip to Venice, i highly recommend 'Torrefazione Marchi' on Strada Nuovo in the Cannaregio neighbourhood. It is a small stand up bar and is the oldest coffee roaster in Venice dating back to the 1930s. Perfect stop off for an espresso power up but i mainly go to stock up on bags of the stuff to take home!

Beenie - H&M Mens
Peplum Tee - H&M Trend
Necklaces (two layered) - Primark
Pencil Skirt - Topshop
Embroidered Bag - ZARA
PVC Sandals - Missoni

Fall is in full swing, its November next week and christmas decorations are already starting to appear.
I am really enjoying autumn so far and have completley embraced the seasons warm colour palette…oranges, mustards, greens and beautiful burgandys are doing wonders for my wardrobe.

This outfit is a second post from my trip to Venice, this look i wore for a day trip to Verona - a beautiful romantic city with a laid back mediterranean feel.
Anyone visiting this city, make sure to stop by ‘Ristorante Milio’ it is literally the most amazing food i have ate in my life. You will find it on ‘Santa Anastasia’ and of course you have to stop by Juliets balcony and the bronze statue of juliet for good luck.

It was abit rainy and humid on this day so instead of wrestling with my hair i wore this colbalt blue mens beenie. The rest of the outfit was very ladylike with a nipped in waist, pencil skirt and jewelled necklaces so the beenie gave abit of colour and contrast.
The mini embroidered velvet bag is a favourite purchase of mine this season from ZARA, small and perfectly formed.

...Good Things

Peplum Top - H&M Trend
Trousers - H&M Trend
Trio Bag - Celine
Embroidered Slippers - M&S
Lipstick - Mac, Dark Side

...We all know the saying 'All good things come in pairs'
 When H&M dropped these brocade numbers a few months back,  there was no question in my mind, i had to buy the set.
 A beautiful rich jacquard fabric in metallic blue and black gives these pieces such a luxurious feel. I will be wearing the trousers to death with fluffy knitwear through the winter season but will also rock the peplum over polo necks with long leather gloves.
This is my first outfit post from my recent trip to Venice. The weather was glorious on day number one and we had ALOT of walking to do so heels were not an option. Instead i went with these embroidered slippers for total baroque overload and an old school Venetian vibe.
I was so comfortable and keeping my shoulders bare meant my pasty skin got to soak up the Italian sunshine. My Celine bag was a complete lifesaver on this trip, three pockets to store maps, guide books , sunglasses and the usual rubbish us women lug around every day.

Stay tuned for outfits from day 2 and 3.

...Fall Essentials

Coat - H&M
Roll Neck - Topshop
Belt - Vintage
Skirt - New Look
Bag - Celine
Heels - H&M

...Winter is round the corner and i havent been holding back when it comes to stocking up on the essentials. In the past few weeks i have been buying wisely, leather gloves, beenie hats, chunky knits and coats. Last year i struggled to find a winter coat, as soon as this bottle green number hit stores a few weeks back i knew i had to lock it down. The style is exactly what i have been looking for, straight cut with a double breast. The colour was a nice suprise as i was orginally looking for a staple colour like camel or black but i adore forest green its just so perfect for fall. Since buying this i have also managed to find a camel number so thats me pretty much stocked up now. Is there such thing as being too prepared?! Knowing my luck we will have a mild winter this year.
These images are from a shoot i worked on for a certain magazine feature, i will update you when it comes out and of course post further images from it on here.

...Flats For Fall

Shirt - ZARA Mens
Jumper - Thrifted
Skirt - H&M Trend
Bag - H&M Trend
Flatforms - H&M Divided

...Another look from before my trip to Italy, almost back on track with my posting now.
Still in the transitional period between the seasons has me mainly wearing a uniform of knits and pencil skirts. I find this to be the perfect combination during this stage, just the right amount of warmth whilst still making the most of bare leg weather. Today i stocked up on some winter essentials however, a beautiful winter coat, leather gloves, scarves and knitted hats.
I am bracing myself for a long harsh winter, i could be wrong but after this 'summer' i am not very hopeful.

...Red Details

Jumper - Borrowed from my mum (No Tag)
Earrings - H&M
Trousers - H&M
Clutch Bag - ZARA
Heels - ZARA

...I'm now home from my trip to Italy. It was beyond perfect but as always too short! 
I have alot of outfits to post, some from before my trip and of course the ones worn during. I will try my best to get them up on here ASAP.
The first, pictured above is a look i wore the first day the temperature dropped here in Newcastle. I went from wearing silk shirts and skirts to scrambling in my wardrobe for anything to keep me warm. Inspired by the Chloe AW12 collection, i opted for a chunky cream jumper which i borrowed from my mum and paired it with red trousers, lips and clutch bag. Of course i added some jewelled earrings, they seem to be becoming a trademark of mine these days. I love this H&M pair, perfect shape and colour - i only wish i'd had a chance to wear them with crisp whites and tanned skin. I'll have to save that image for next year, its almost time to start the Christmas countdown.
