The Winter Capsule Wardrobe

I think I find picking outfits in winter a lot easier than summer?  Chunky jumpers and a pair of skinnies are my go-to.  I also love a nice pair of ankle boots with tights and skater dresses.  So what's in my capsule wardrobe for winter?

Skinny Jeans

I prefer skinny jeans in winter and boyfriend jeans in summer.  I especially like dark skinny jeans and have a gorgeous navy pair from Zara which only cost about £25.

Roll Necks and Chunky Jumpers

Chunky jumpers worn over shirts or tight fitted roll necks tucked into jeans or skirts.  Or a combination of the two which is my ultimate fave; chunky turtle necks and cowl necks.

Ankle Boots

This is one item I truly believe every girl should have in her wardrobe.  They go with skinny jeans, skater dresses and pencil skirts.  I would wear ankle boots every day if I could, so comfy too.

Over The Knee Boots

I didn't know whether to include these or not because I know they're not for everyone but seeing as they're everywhere at the moment I thought I would.  I got a beautiful burgundy pair for Christmas from New Look which I am yet to wear but be assured they will be on my Instagram as soon as I do!

Grey and Camel Coats

These seem to be the go-to colours for coats this season and I'm not complaining.  I love my boyfriend coat I bought last year from Dorothy Perkins in dark grey after seeing it on Millie Mackintosh.

Blanket Scarfs

I could literally buy so many of these, they are my favourite thing with any outfit.  I have lots of bright coloured ones from Target and Primark as they're so cheap but warm and fashionable which is exactly what I need when I want more than one.


I wasn't sold on this trend at first because it just seemed to be a bit like a tent and shapeless but I gave in and bought one from Peacocks after falling in love with the Burberry ones and they are so comfortable.  Styled the right way they can look rather chic.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too!

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
