BLOGMAS Day 23 // Christmas Day Outfit Inspiration

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE EVE!!! Can you guys believe it? Of course you can, it’s practically been Christmas on my blog for 23 days now.

Since we’re only 2 sleeps away, today I wanted show you guys what I’ll be wearing for Christmas this year!

Obviously we start out with PJs, so I’ll be rocking these rather festive joggers with an ordinary t-shirt. (Don’t want to overdo the Christmas cheer first thing in the morning do we?)morning xmas outfitNext we’re onto the epitome of Christmas day. Well, maybe not the epitome, but it’s certainly a massive part of it, the Christmas jumper! I’ve thrown mine on with one of my wardrobe staples, a black skater skirt, some thick black tights (it is still Winter after all!) my antler headband and black brogues. day xmas outfitNow for many of us, the outfits stop there, hell, for some of us the outfits more realistically stop at the PJs, but I wanted to put together a ‘dressier’ option, for those of us that are attending any parties, just going out for the evening, or even if you just want to dress up for dinner with your family.

So for this look, I’ve kept my skater skirt, but added a sparkly halter neck crop top and swapped my tights and brogues, for the most sparkly heeled boots imaginable.evening xmas outfitWouldn’t you agree? I adore these shoes but they are truly made for the festive season, and to be shown off at parties.xmas outfit shoes

Autumnal Lookbook

As the weather is quickly changing, and we’re experiencing crisper mornings and evenings, today I thought I’d share with you guys a little autumnal lookbook, to give you some style inspiration for these lovely autumn days!

So it’s perfect for just lounging around in, or wearing to school or university.


Dressed UpGrey Crop Top | New Look | £11.99 Mustard Skirt | Primark | £7 Tights | Primark | £4 Wedges | New Look | £19.99Grey Crop Top | New Look | £11.99 Mustard Skirt | Primark | £7 Tights | Primark | £4 Wedges | New Look | £19.99This outfit is quite dressed up because I’ve paired it with some lace-up bootie wedges. These mustard coloured button down skirts are everywhere, in every store and every autumn trend, so I’d definitely recommend picking one of these up! Also this look has a slightly different element from most usual autumnal looks, because instead of thick black tights, I’ve matched them to the grey of my top. Patterned tights are always cute to wear with skirts, and these keep you super warm too!


That’s it for my Autumnal Lookbook, let me know which of these looks was your favourite! Do you have any go-to style tips for the colder autumn weather?

Spring Must-Haves: Powder

Founded in 2009, and winning Fashion Accessory of the Year in 2013, there is no stopping the force that is Powder. They recently contacted me to ask me to select some of their spring products and create some outfits and a wish list, and I very eagerly accepted, for a multitude of reasons; their products are all very unique and suit my vintage-inspired style, and they sell everything at an affordable price! Their website is also just my style, and very easy to navigate, you could spend ages browsing through their designs.

So without further ado, here are 3 of their pieces that I have created into 3 styles!


outfit1

Casual-Chic | Here I have paired the Lola infinity scarf with my New look “Weekends I Love You” t-shirt, my New look black ripped jeans and my plain tan heels. This is a simple look, but remains stylish, and the colours all compliment each other nicely, nothing is too distracting, so it’s quite a classic look. And as the scarf is an infinity one, you don’t need to worry about how is best to wear it with this look, just slip it on and you’re good to go!



outfit2

Cute & Girly | Here I have paired the Long Lace Top Socks with one of my floral playsuits. This look is so easy to pull off, takes no time to put together and it’s perfectly girly. The florals and plain ballet flats are perfect for spring, and these socks are not only adorable, but perfect for spring-time when the weather isn’t quite suitable for bare legs.

These socks are not yet available, so do excuse the missing toes as full pictures were not possible.


OUTFIT3Vintage Inspired | Here I’ve created a very vintage-inspired outfit, featuring the Collette scarf. Again, this look is very classic, as I have said before, a black skater skirt is an absolute staple if you like to wear dresses and skirts. Pairing it with a peachy-coloured top, plain black heels, and I chose to add pearls, and instantly you’ve got a gorgeous vintage style. This scarf kind of reminds me of a ballerina, because of it’s light colour and white floral detailing, so I think it’s perfect to wear with a very classic look.


So those are the pieces on my Spring wishlist from Powder, have yourself a little browse and let me know what you’d add to your wishlist and how you would style it!

How To Style: Black Skater Skirt

HTSFor me, there is one staple that anyone that likes to wear dresses or skirts should have; and that’s a black skater skirt.

Every time I went into a shop, I’d be scouring the rails looking for the perfect versatile skirt that I could wear with anything. I had many skirts and dresses already, but they all had other pieces that they went well with, and not much else. And then I found it. A black skater skirt. Now it is my number one recommendation to anyone, it’s great if you love skirts and would love another, and it’s great if you’re not sure whether or not you could match it with other items in your wardrobe, because it goes with just about anything.


So today I though I’d share with you guys 4 different ways that I would style a black skater skirt.


crop

1. with a crop top – you can pair any colour crop top you like and a pair of flats. This outfit is best suited for the warmer weather of the summer because otherwise you are gonna freeze. Put a cardigan over it, and it could also be a nice outfit for an evening meal.

3 . with a collared shirt and jumper – this outfit it quite office/uniform inspired and suitable if you have wardrobe requirements that you have to stick to.

4. with a patterned long sleeved top – this outfit it cute and flirty and it doesn’t look too overboard if you’re pairing the skirt with a pattern or stripes, because the black keeps it classic.
