super 70s

top - Debenhams, dress - Debenhams, coat - Debenhams, boots - New Look

The 70s trend is by far one of my favourites and I'm so glad it's stuck around for the duration of 2015, it's love. I'm obsessed with anything rust, suede and fringed so the 70s trend makes me super happy. I love this faux-suede dress from Debenhams, it's so soft and easy to wear. The polo neck is also from Debenhams and it's a must-have piece for AW15. They're so comfy and versatile and can be worn alone and under tunics and dresses to make them wintery and super cosy. They do this particular polo neck in a variety of colours: black, burgundy, rust... the list goes on. Chunky over-knee boots are back with a bang after their huge success last Winter. I picked up these babies from New Look, they're super comfy but kind of baggy round my legs when I'm wearing them with bare legs or tights. I'm still figuring out some sort of trick I can pull to keep them up! If anyone has any, let me know :) Finally, my favourite coat/jacket of this year is this gorgeous checked coat with a huge fur collar from...yes you guessed it, Debenhams (can you tell where I work yet?). It's super comfy and cosy and oh so 70s it's dreamy. Be warned to those who like fastening coats that this doesn't have any buttons but for me it's perfect, I hate zipping up my jackets - it makes me feel so claustrophobic!! 

Are you glad the 70s trend seems to be sticking around?

bye bye macadam

dress - Topshop (similar here), boots - ASOS, headband - ASOS 

I could not for the life of me think what to call this post as the featured outfit is super simple so I decided to go for the classic song/lyrics as a blog post. I don't usually like house/dance music but I'm so sold by this song by French DJ Rone at the minute and the video on YouTube is sooooo cool, you can check it out here

Anyway, back to the post. I got this jumper dress in the Topshop sale, it must've been lurking around in my local Topshop a while coz I can't find it online at all but I've found a similar one on Very for you lovelies to see. It's navy and cream and oh so comfy to wear, the material is ribbed (classic Topshop) and not too thick - perfect for the transitional weather at the minute. Stripes are my go-to and most definitely my thing; I wear them all the time as they're just so darn cute! These boots from ASOS are sooooo dreamy, black suede with fringing on the sides and they've literally just gone into the sale today for anyone that wants them. They're not the comfiest of heeled boots but they're so worth the occasional foot pain simply for the pleasure the fringing gives me when I walk - amazing. 

What's your go-to?
