Comfy days in the colder season.

Hey all, sorry it's been a while since I last posted! I started at my new job in Mod Dolly this week and staying here with my friend and now boss Amy. Not going to lie it is very tiring to travel every day and that is only a half hour bus journey within London. I start commuting from Portsmouth as of next week and it is a 2 hour trip morning and night, don't know how I will cope but will just have to!

I am really enjoying myself here and it makes me even more excited to move to London.
If there is one thing it makes me appreciate more though, it's spending days with family being comfy, warm and eating yummy roast dinners! I miss my family already and I haven't even moved to London yet, it does sometimes feel like you are a world away. I suppose it is what you make of it and I know with time I'll get used to the hectic lifestyle.

Vintage Jacket - Thrifted 
Satchel Bag - Primark
Geek Shoes - Missguided
Plum tights - Primark
Necklace - Miss Selfridge 
My outfit on days like this tend to be a variety of things. This particular look was a kind of throw on outfit that ends up being a nice mixture of colours that looks like I have planned it! In fact, I didn't plan this to happen but I threw on this jacket and didn't realize just how much it suited my tights until I'd left home. I like the colour pallet for autumn with the freshness of the lilac. This time of year a vintage jacket and pair of sunglasses are my go to staples, especially my new Ray Ban retro specs from Sunglasses Shop. There is nothing better than making an autumn winter outfit feel colourful!

Beauxoxo Lookbook

 photo _MG_2518_zps802ed01c.jpg
Hey all, I said i'd be back at some point with the amazing Lookbook photography from the Beaxoxo Autumn shoot. Here they are, I chose my favourites to show you but of course go see the set over on Beauxoxo directly. 
All I can say is that the photography work by Ailera Stone along with the beautiful hair accessories the photos came out amazingly. It was a much needed little confidence boost this week, as been having one of those 'everything look horrible about myself' periods at the moment. My skin has been suffering bad break outs and I miss my long hair a lot, it's a combination of things. What I love about this lookbook as not only is is perfect for Beauxoxo as a brand but also for me! It sums my style up perfectly and you will more than likely be seeing the images used around my social channels for the next few months.

Puppy love.

My two weeks off work are nearly coming to an end, which makes me sad! I only have 5 shifts left before I start my venture at Mod dolly in London, I can't wait. The last few days I intend on enjoying the sleep, good food and relaxing, I think I even enjoy the boredom that comes with lazy days just to appreciate it. Soon i'll be up at the crack of dawn to travel daily to London, a 4 hour round trip there and back every day is going to be tiring. When fashion and style is concerned mixed with the new colder weather coming in, comfort is definitely the most important thing.

This outfit is one perfect for Autumn and one I have made the most of a couple of times while I have been off work. On the days with a bit of blue sky and fresh sunshine a furry gillet is perfect! It will also be good on train days, as walking about and travelling can get quite warm in a heavy coat, so a jumper and gillet may be the answer! The trousers accompany it very well, and both items are from Missguided making it so easy to create a lovely autumnal outfit.

When taking photos the cutest and calmest dog strolled by and couldn't help but get involved in the photos, what a poser!
