Recent and Black Friday buys

Black Friday madness has come and gone for another year and it was a pretty good one in my opinion. I'm being a lot more mindful with my spending so I only got a couple of things and considering I filled up baskets on almost every favourite shop of mine, I'd say that is pretty good will power- I must be stronger than I think ;) 



So, first up are the shoes. 




These were an amazing £12.50 from Missguided and I really heart them. A little awkward with the pointy toe bit, but I can deal with that for twelve quid.. And hellooo they're navy  and velvet!?! It's a No brainer! 

Bag also a new purchase. I have included it in a couple of previous posts if you want to check it out.


Secondly, it's no secret that I love a pyjama shirt from and this crisp white one from ASOS is a great wardrobe staple as it can be worn in many ways. Loving the oversized look of this one great for layering but also works tucked in and I love the relaxed fit because sometimes shirts can feel a little stiff. 


Shoes also new at £6 from Primark. 




I've layered the shirt here under quite a short jumper just to give it a bit more length and with leather jacket. 



And here's the outfit in full. 



I didn't intend on wearing this as an outfit but it has worked or pretty well I think and may well wear it for Christmas cocktails with a fur jacket. *starts browsing fur jackets* 





Lastly, this pink silk cami from H&M is just divine. Again, looks like underwear/nightwear hense why I've bought it.. Plus it was only £9.99. 



Wearing it here with washed black high waisted jeans and western belt ( sorry about the poor pic quality- these dark nights are taking their toll on my photo taking abilities). For daytime I would wear this with a cream chunky oversized cardy and boots. And for evening I would throw on a black leather jacket or blazer with some strappy heels and clutch bag. 




So there we have it, I think I've been quite sensible there (killer heels aside lol). Not too much money spent on unneeded things. I clearly needed ALL of these things; who doesn't need a pink silk cami?! ;)

It's good to be green

I love a bit of green, especially in Autumn/winter and when the festive season comes around. The emerald green comes out in full force. It's such a beautiful colour and really brings some 'chicness' to an outfit.

A little bit of sparkle

Right, so it's back to business on the blog tonight and I'm talking about a little bit of sparkle. 

Christmas nights out are all booked on the calendar and the outfit search is most likely in full swing. And as its Christmas there is no better time to add some sparkle. I personally am not a very sparkly wearing person so, for me, little touches are the way forward for the festive season. Whether it's sequins, a little shimmer, velvet or metallic anything that shines, for me, is classed as a sparkle. 





I am quite partial to a sequined jacket and like it when styled down ie, with jeans and a Tshirt to give it a bit of a rock chick vibe.
