Doc Martens: Christmas present (off Ebay) | Bag: Carboot | Skirt: Carboot sale | Jacket: Tokyo Doll at New Look | Jumper: C&A

This is a quick look I threw on today for going out for a little coffee and catch up with friends. I wanted to include my new doc martzzz that I got for Christmas cause they're just so pretty and I love them, they won't be leaving my toetsies for a while. Plus, they go really well with this lil' burgundy bag I snapped up at a carbooty. I love carboots and I can't wait to go to more next summer! I can't believe the end of 2013 is already upon us but I can't wait for what 2014 has in store. It's going to be a big year for me with lots of changes and I'm looking forward to putting behind me all the nonsense from this year but ofcourse keeping all the good memories. Onwards and upwards I say though! Also, thanks to my two lovely friends, Charlotte and Megan for a joint effort in taking these snaps even though I suck at posing!

What are your plans for the new year?


Polka Dots & Overalls

Dungarees: Missguided.co.uk | Shirt: Carboot sale | Fedora: Missguided.co.uk | Brogues: Ebay | Bag: Carboot Sale

My style can go from 'rock chick' black all over to preppy in a day...I really can't seem to settle on one style yet, as I like so many, maybe that'll come later with age, who knows? I'd been meaning to feature this shirt on my blog for ages, so here it is! I got it for 1 € at a carboot sale during the summer...I love how it can be put with anything, for day or night and I think it looks great with the blue denim. This bag is another carboot find, it's perfect to fit all my bits 'n' bobs in and has a real old vintage feel to it...it was pretty windy outside (hence the first photo) and I was trying to hold my hat on...but the photo turned out pretty good anyhow!

2 days till Christmas eeeek! Who's excited?!


The Ankle Biker Boot

 Boots: H&M | Jacket: Zara | T-shirt: H&M | (Faux) Fur gilet: Thrifted on Vinted iPhone app | Jeans: H&M | Beanie: H&M (basically, a lot from H&M!)

I am in love with these boots! I had been searching for the perfect ankle boot for a while, on Ebay and other online stores but didn't quite find what I was looking for, till I spotted these buckled beauties in H&M. They're actually two sizes bigger than my normal size 6 but surprisingly fit as if they were! They look no bigger and are perfectly comfy...which is strange, but it was either that or a pair of size 4's...and nobody likes squished toetsies. I've been wearing a lot of black lately...it's just so easy to mix and match things and black always goes. I put on my (faux) fur gilet, again, but this time over my leather jacket and I really love the combination of textures beside each other, and it keeps me sooo warm. It's getting even closer to Christmas and I'm pretty excited now (mainly for food).


The (Faux) Fur Gilet

Hat: Missguided.co.uk | Necklace: Primark | Jumper: C&A (yes we still have that store in France and it's not just for old people!) | (faux) Fur Gilet: Vinted app | Polka dot playsuit (worn as shorts): charity shop | Doc martens: Ebay

This beaut of a fur gilet (which is faux by the way, before anyone starts throwing red paint all over me) is the answer to my winter woes. I bought it off the Vinted iphone app for about 10 € which I consider a pretty good bargain! I've seen them everywhere lately, on the likes of the MIC cast and on the high-street so decided to nab myself one. It's so cosy and can be thrown over anything from leather jackets to dresses to add a bit of glam to your outfit...although, my dad says I look like our black cat, thanks pops. I've been putting knee high socks over tights a lot lately for that extra snuggly-ness and it looks great with my DM's. In other news, I've been spending a lot of time applying to schools for next year-to think this time next year I'll be somewhere else...it's an exciting and nerve wracking thought at the same time.


The Leopard Print Jacket

(Faux) fur jacket: Thrifted on Vinted.fr 15€ | Shirt: A friends from Primark | Necklace: River Island | Jeans: Zara | Bag: My nanas from ages ago | Shoes: Carboot sale 3€

 Today, this is my 100th post since I started back in April- how time has flown in! I'm actually pretty proud of myself to have kept this blog up for so long. It's became something I really love to do now, and I plan to continue it as long as I continue to enjoy doing it. Anyway, just a quick thanks to those that follow me on here and care about what I have to say...strange to think some do as I tend to ramble, (here I go again..) but it means a lot...ok, I can't stay cheesy for long, let's move on shall we!

This is what I wore last night out for a friends birthday. It's quite 'out there' from what I'm used to but what the heck, if you can't dress up for a birthday then when can you?! I love mixing boyfriend jeans with heels, it's a great way to dress them up without going overboard. I bought this (faux) fur jacket from the Vinted app which I'm slooowly becoming addicted to. I've seen leopard print jackets everywhere lately and finally snapped up my own, perfect to dress up any outfit, during the day with biker boots or at night with heels.
