Call Me Relaxed

There is something so comforting about putting on a warm jumper on a freezing day. I've always been drawn towards knitwear the minute I feel a cool breeze, and with London being not so warm (understatement of the year) outside I've made no exception. My favourite thing to do is layer my knitwear over a clean white shirt, and then some more layering by wearing my baggy jumper over a skirt. I opted for a midi skirt the other day, purely because I wanted a chance to wear my amazing sandals from Forever 21, and midi skirts are a bit more cold weather friendly if you want to wear some sandals and get the toes out. x

Call Me Adore

For Christmas my amazing mother got me Roses de Chloé and I felt the need to voice my thoughts about it because it seems to be the only fragrance I wear lately, and every other day I get lovely comments from people telling me how nice I smell. Now I always tend to be a bit sceptical when different versions of signature scents are released and I was even more sceptical for Roses de Chloé as the Chloé signature scent is my staple fragrance and has been for as long as I can remember.

But the minute opened my gift and smelled Roses de Chloé I was hooked, I guess this is one of those moments where you end up telling yourself that 'mother knows best' and indeed, she does. Roses de Chloé has the signature warm notes of the Chloé fragrance but the strong hits of bergamot and damascena rose combined with the undertone of magnolia is simply exquisite.

Call Me Lady Luck

Some details from what I wore to work last week. I got this amazing Topshop red/orange fluffy coat in the sale around Christmas and it has been surprisingly versatile. It's quite a shocking colour but the texture and the oversize cocoon silhouette works quite well with many of the things in my closet. I paired the coat with these amazing rose print trousers from Oasis and a basic black cami. 

Shoes were easy, these amazing 90s-esque platforms from New Look's Limited Edition have been on my lust list ever since I saw them on the website a few months ago. They obviously sold out by the time I went to buy them online, but after some naughty after work shopping I found them in the New Look store in Bank. 1 pair in my size! If I didn't believe in fate already I would have after that. x

Call Me Blue

So I've had the holiday blues this whole week. It was my first week back at work after an amazing trip to Cuba with my sister. Above are a few pictures from the holiday, from the white sand beaches, turquoise sea and an excessive week long consumption of rum, I can honestly say this holiday has been a favourite. x
