Winter Green | Faux Leather Trousers & Layered Tops

This has been a look I've been wanting to share for so long. I bought these faux leather trousers in an attempt to refrain from using the "I have nothing to wear!" phrase every time my jeans were in the wash. I also have always found it extremely difficult shopping for denim - I am so picky about what I like and hate the trying-on process. These trousers (from Next) are so perfect - I can wear them with every outfit as a substitute for jeans; they add an edgy element to any outfit and they fit beautifully. I love pairing this cream trumpet-sleeved ribbed sweater with these trousers and this gorgeous silk vintage evening top for the perfect juxtaposed outfit. I added a cream fur coat and black paperboy cap when I went outside. Black studded ankle boots and a dark green handbag seemed like the best accessories to compliment the rock'n'roll feel of the rest of the outfit.

Born in the Wrong Decade – Street Style Inspired By The 70’s/80’s

I’ve always gone through phases of being inspired by different vintage eras – often fuelled by a new TV show I’m watching, or a Pinterest board I’ve recently discovered. I’ve always gravitated back to periods of glamour: the charm, glitz and elegance of the 20’s and 30’s; and the disco, punky style of the 70’s and 80s. I love incorporating elements of the 70s’ and 80’s (especially in autumn and winter) into my outfits – berets, straight leg jeans, studs, fur, bright knits, polonecks - especially in the last few seasons, when these eras have been so well represented on the highstreet and catwalks.

Deconstructed Ruffled Midi Skirt


Both the ruffled trend and deconstructed pieces have been huge this season - I bought this midi skirt a while ago and have been waiting for the right moment to wear it. I felt like this was a good debut: an Italian sunset backdrop, a basic white t-shirt and a sleek twisted bun to complete the look.

Any excuse to add more luxurious textures, regal colours or unusual pieces to an outfit is an excuse I will use within the hour.

Gorgeously Weather-Inappropriate Wrap Blouse

If beauty is pain, then surely it is acceptable to wear a thin cotton poplin blouse in the midst of icy mid-February.

I now proudly own a pair of trousers (silver, fine-pleating, metallic, cropped - I'm in love) which are not the two jeans I wear or the single pair of cigarette trousers I also happen to own.

Sometimes I challenge myself to wear the exact same outfit as many times as I can until someone brings it up: eg. this get-up.
