Cosy...cosy





Jacket: Primark   Jeans: H&M   Jumper: H&M   Trainers: River Island

Simple one today, standard outfit atm...jeans jumper, hat (I get cold ears!!!). Just wanted to put up this jacket, got it a while ago when the tartan craze was going on a few weeks ago. Just like the collar and the contrasting sleeves. Need to brave it and take some posts of some new skirts I bought, and also released need to get my fringe trimmed! Also got these lovelies, here, now it's payday! Lil treats are allowed as a pick me up every now and then!

Going to…market

 1. Choose a basic, but warm, outfit. Comfy boots and a statement necklace never hurts!

 2. Add trusty winter coat!

 3. Then oversized knit scarf, worn full length

 4. Add beanie…(my Nan always said to wear a hat, not that she ever did as it would ruin her hair!)

5. Go to the Markets!!!

Coat: H&M   Shirt: Primark   Jeans: H&M   Boots: New Look   Scarf: Primark   Hat: H&M   Watch: River Island

As some of you may have seen from my Facebook/Twitter page and photos, here, and, here, it has been the most glorious day here in Manchester. I've said before, I love this time of year! Yes don't get me wrong am all about the warm weather and sunshine but days like today are great. Crisp air, perfect sky and no wind! As long as you go out wrapped up enough, it can be lovely, hence my steps to getting wrapped up above.

Even more lovely (told you that necklace suited what I say!) was to explore the Manchester Christmas Markets today, just had a quick look round to see what was there and get into the Christmas feeling a bit more, not that it takes much! Usually feeling very festive and looking forward to putting the tree up soon, that and is now less than a month till my birthday, eeeee, getting excited! Shall add a post with some more pics from today at later point!

Staying…in











































T-shirt skull design: Jacky Tsai   Skirt: River Island   Shoes: Faith   Watch: River Island

You may remember my previous post, here, about attending the Vogue Fashion Night Out in Manchester, which was great. Finally got round to taking some photos of the t-shirt I bought as part of it which supported Save the Children with profits from it. I did manage to get a cool design screen printed on the back from the Jacky Tsai and his team in Harvey Nichols too. 

I then couldn't resist the skirt the girls were wearing at the front of River Island so ran into get one of those too! A good night well spent I say!

Days…getting away






Coat: H&M   Jumper: Primark   Leggings: H&M   Boots: H&M Parics Collection   Necklace: Primark   Bag: Primark

Ok, ok I know, I have been generally quite rubbish with keeping up on here at the moment and now the nights are drawing in, it's even harder to find time to get some photos and update blog. Thing is I do miss it and generally every time I go out will think 'I'll get someone to take some photos today!' and then usually wimp out of asking, or at the moment put on a MASSIVE jumper over what I'm wearing.

Truth is circumstances lately have changed and I need to find a way to work around them and keep doing what I love…where there's a will I'm sure there's a way! It's just taking a bit of time! Anyway enough of the reflective stuff, am loving this "Lovely" necklace (btw it was £1…that's right £1!!!!). I love text necklaces and when asking my mum recently if I have any particular phases she said 'well you do say lovely a lot!' so seemed right! P.S. I also know I need to sort out photo sizes etc…one day soon, when I get some quiet time will get it all back to normal, promise!

Lazy...Sunday





Jumper: H&M   Necklace: Topshop
Sometimes there are days when it's just good to be inside and cosy, watching the rain and dark outside, today is definitely one of those days! And this is one of my ultimate lazy day jumpers, oversized, warm,  (a steal at just £9.99!) and slouchy neck. Good for just chilling on the couch and watching random stuff on TV.

Can't get through a day without a cuppa too! Have in one of my favourite mugs (everyone has a favourite!) for the Manchester Christmas Markets last year, scary to think they're nearly here again. Just reminds me of good times and equally tasty drinks that were originally in it! Apologises for random size of photos too, still need to get a proper art programme on new laptop but keep spending money for it on new clothes instead...ooops!

Vogue...Fashion Night Out










So last weeks highlight was going to the Vogue Fashion Night Out, held for the first time in Manchester. I did walk around a bit in a daze as there were so many people that you talk/read about just right there!!! Like Bip Ling DJing and having a bit of a chat in the Ugg store, Sophia Webster and the boys from Made In Chelsea in Harvey Nics customising FNO t-shirts and various Vogue editors in random stores giving advice. 

There was loads going on, random fashion shows, advice and set up stands for hair and beauty tips...the only thing am bit gutted is that missed Matthew Williamson in Flannels. I have got my FNO t-shirt customised by the team from Jealous Print Studio London with a design by Jacky Tsai, just loved the skull design. Thought would go well with the skirt I bought after seeing the girls in River Island above! Love it!

So it...starts






Jumper: H&M   Jeans: H&M   Shoes: Zara   Bag: Primark   Sunglasses: H&M

Well it's definitely Autumn, love this time of year and all the colours that come out. It's that time in between jackets and big coats...must go coat hunting! Was randomly looking around H&M the other day and saw this jumper in their sale, was one I'd seen on the website ages ago! I love the design and colours on it and couldn't find it again when I went to buy it, like when you find something like that.

Tonight in Manchester there is going to be the Vogue Fashion Night Out and have been looking at some of the events going on, looks very exciting. Check out some of the events going on, here. Not sure what to do first!

Scottish...reel





Jacket: River Island   Trousers: Primark   Jumper: Primark   Boots: Topshop

If I described my style, I don't think punk would really come into it anywhere but am loving the autumn/winter trends at the moment, particularly all the tartan! Bought this jacket from Primark, here, couple of weeks ago but though would try with some tartan trousers. 

Was originally going to wear with my Zara, single strap sandals and sheer white shirt for bit more of a dressed up looked but because it's reverted back to typical Manchester weather (that being friggin' cold and flippin' wet!) went more for a casual, thicker jumper and bigger boots look! Having said that the cut outs to the boots, not so great when you tread in a big puddle!
