Outfit | Suit up, Look sharp

Hat // Primark
Waistcoat // Missguided
Cropped top // Missguided
Trousers // Missguided
Bag // Zara
Shoes // Missguided

I wouldn't exactly consider myself a smart person, being in the fashion industry means I’ve never really had to conform to strict work wear, and I haven’t worn a uniform since school when even then I would bend the rules. Luckily, comfort seems to be the latest concept in fashion with even the most tailored of suits being worn with trainers. So when Missguided contacted me to get down to business with their ‘Suit Up’ campaign I knew I’d be putting a casual spin on things.

If you’re from a more corporate background you may want to save the satin crop top for after work drinks and trade it for a shirt during office hours and of course, loose the hat! Black sleeveless Missguided blazers, tapered trousers and pointed brogues should be your new staples as all can be smartened up separately during the week and dressed down at the weekend, whichever suits!

Outfit | The last of the Green Leaves.

Beige Trench // Primark
Printed Sweatshirt // Primark
Khaki Shirt // H&M
Suede Shorts // Topshop Unique
Sunglasses // Asos
Heels // Linzi

With Autumn finally upon us the season of layering can commence and I'm kicking it of with light layers of a sheer khaki shirt under this MSGM inspired floral print sweater paired with one of AW14 hottest colours red in a key texture of suede. Shorts are my favourite transition piece from summer to autumn as you can pile up the heavy knits and coats over the areas that get the coldest whilst still flaunting the last remnants of those tanned legs!

Monday Must Have | Faux Fur

More inspo can be found on my pinterest

We're back with another Monday Must Have and with the weather taking a turn for the worst its time to start thinking Winter warmers, and where better to begin than with faux-Fur! The cosiest of all textures, its ideal comfort for those cold mornings when you want to roll out of bed and in to something just as snug. This year there's so much variety on the market be it curling up with a teddy bear, multi-coloured or long haired/ shaggy furs. And if you aren't ready to go all out sully, then the many fluffy accessories from scarves to pom pom bag charms, shoes and of course the 'IT' season fur clutch could be that touch of texture you're looking for.

Glamorous have a really great selection of faux fur coats at the moment so I've picked my favourites:

Wish List | Mango

Mango is fast becoming one of my favourite stores! Sadly I think Mango is quite under-rated amid highstreet faves Zara, Topshop and H&M, I myself can't say its a must-stop and I'll often overlook it. However after being attracted by the 20% discount during Vogues Fashion Night Out I ventured in and I've been hooked since by their chic key pieces so I thought I'd put together my clickable Edit of this seasons collection including camel waistcoat, cool ear cuff, and yes that is a shirt playsuit! I think if I could only shop in one place it would be here..
