Winter layers

I commute into London for work every day, so planning outfits isn’t always successful. On several occasions I’ve either severely over dressed or under dressed and have been left freezing/melting in central London. One thing I’ve found which normally always works is layering, and below is one of my staple favourites I love, and which can work well this winter.

Let me know what you think! 🙂

Winter Make-Up Trends

So, I’ve spent most of this week debating with several groups of friends what I should, or definitely shouldn’t, wear to Christmas parties this December (yes, my life is that interesting!)

However, the only thing I can decide on is the make-up and nails – something dark. I know most people dye their hair darker when the weather gets colder, but for once I’ve stayed blonde and feel I need to go dark elsewhere this Winter. So, I’m thinking Wine coloured nails (more Pinot Noir than Grigio), classic smokey eyes and lashings of mascara. All I need now is a dress…

Nails. Dark reds always tend to shine more in the winter. Try a delicious dark red, and either a top-coat of Barry M shine, or Essie’s matte to add something extra. An accent nail in a similar shaded glitter, or nail caviar, could add a little extra if you’re looking for some sparkle too.

Blushed cheeks A great tip I heard recently is to apply blusher under a light later of foundation for a rosy cheek effect, rather than after foundation. It looks more subtle too, especially if you’re worried about your blush overpowering your look.

Smokey eyes. Certain to add a little extra to daytime make-up, smokey eyes done well can transform your outfit, with rock chick effortlessness. Want a break from the staple grey/black smokey eyes? Try gold, or even rose gold, this winter.There are no rules! Having statement eye makeup doesn’t mean you need to tone down the rest of your look, just wear what you feel comfortable in.

Sultry lips. Dark red lips are fast becoming a winter night favourite. Paired with a LBD and heels, you’ll pretty much nail any dress code this Christmas. A brighter shade might work fabulously with smudged eyes, but pale pink lips might look stunning with natural eye makeup. It’s all down to personal preferences, and you’re willingness to experiment.

Outfit: Winter Chill

Hi!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few weeks!!

Recently, I’ve been layering a lot of my outfits, rather than having one winter coat. I love the leather jacket and hoody look – esp when one is in a dark berry shade…

Outfit: Saturday Night Eats

Hi!

Last night I went to a Indian buffet restaurant with my boyfriend, and some of his friends.

The blazer is from Mango, and the sleeves roll right down. It fits so well, and I’m wearing a M/12-14.

The jeans are Topshop, Baxter. I go through leggings so quickly so I thought I’d invest in some black skinny jeans – they’re quite tight but are an amazing fit. They do so many leg lengths too, which is fab for a tall girl like me!

The pumps are H & M, and the top is old season Topshop.

Let me know what you think!

Outfit: Saturday Chic

Hi!

I recently went to London on a shopping trip with my best friend Robyn. We spent the whole day walking up and down Oxford street, and found some amazing pieces.

The outfit below is mostly from that London trip. The maxi skirt is from Zara, and was such a bargain – under £20! It’s in a dark berry shade too – so def OTM for AW2012.

The leather jacket I live in – from missguided. The scarf is from Accesorize, and the tshirt is miss selfridges.

Let me know how you’re wearing this seasons trends in the comment box below. Love hearing from you all!
