Blanket Cape


What I'm Wearing:

Polo Neck - Uniqlo (similar here) / Blanket Cape - Topshop (similar here, here and here) / Jeans - Topshop / Boots - Topshop / Hat - Topshop (similar here) / 

The blanket cape is back and boy am I loving how cosy it is. The perfect layering accessory that adds a little something to an everyday casual outfit. When I first saw Olivia Palermo and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley embracing the trend with their very own personalised Burberry blanket cape, I knew that I needed to find an alternative....fast. Topshop definitely answered my prayers but if this pattern isn't for you why not try this black one which is also a favourite of mine. Of course I couldn't resist pairing this blanket cape with my favourite Topshop over the knee boots which are now back in stock. The over the knee boot definitely seems to have taken the shoe world by storm and I must say I do love the way they elongate your legs. One day I will own the infamous Stuart Weitzman boots but for now I must say I do love these River Island beauties. Is the blanket cape for you or is it a seasonal trend that just won't stick?

Ostrich Feather Co-ord


What I'm Wearing:

Blazer - Topshop / Top - Missguided* / Skirt - Missguided*/ Heels - Topshop (similar here and here) / 


Ostrich feathers have taken the fashion world by storm as of late.  For those of you who read my blog you will know that I love a good co-ordinate and this Missguided feather trim co-ord is no exception. Perfect for the party season, it also has the added bonus of being worn seperately. Great cost-per-wear ratio if you ask me. Here, I have paired this dreamy feather co-ord with my Topshop forest green blazer and statement heels for a pretty dressy look. To dress this outfit down you could just throw a leather jacket over the top but I wanted to inject some colour into this ensemble. If the black isn't for you it also comes in a dusty pink version. You can see the top here and the skirt here. Perhaps I am slightly feather obsessed but I love the added texture this outfit brings and will definitely be getting my wear out of it over the festive period.

Stan Smith


What I'm Wearing:

Polo Neck - Uniqlo / Coat - ASOS (similar here and here) / Trousers - Topshop / Stan Smiths - Office

When in doubt reach for your Adidas Stan Smith's. I know I certainly do. And If you don't own a pair it's about time you invested in some. I promise you won't regret it. The versatility of these trainers means that I can pair them with so many items in my wardrobe, especially the more tailored pieces I own. I particularly like that I can dress down a smarter outfit making it more effortlessly cool, with maximum comfort. Here, I am wearing a pair of tailored trousers from Topshop with my trusted polo neck jumper. As you all know by now, I am an avid polo neck wearer. In actual fact I am a bit of a wuss when it comes to the cold weather and find these types of jumpers are the only things to keep me warm in the colder months. I think it is time I upped my polo neck game and added some cashmere to the collection. This cashmere polo neck from Wool Overs looks like an absolute dream and not too hefty on the price tag either. What do you all think of the tailored trouser and Stan Smith combo? Do you live in yours as much as I do? I would love to know. See you in my next post.

The Blanket Cape


What I'm Wearing:

Blanket Cape - Topshop (similar here and here) / Jacket - Y.A.S (similar here) / Polo Neck - Uniqlo / Jeans - Topshop / Boots - ASOS / Bag - Zara (similar here) /  


Oh boy has the weather taken a turn for the worse. The past few days it has felt so bitterly cold that extra layers have been necessary to stop me turning into an ice cube. That's where this Topshop blanket cape comes in handy. Layered here over my polo neck jumper and leather jacket, I am keeping the cold chill at bay. This cape also looks good worn on its own cinched in at the waist with a skinny belt. And may I add how very Burberry-esque this cape looks at a not so Burberry price tag. I love the autumnal colour palette in this outfit and quite frankly couldn't resist taking these ASOS booties out on another outing. Have any of you invested in a cape this winter?  If you are debating on a purchase check out my selection above. See you in my next post.
