Love hearts and fur.

 photo IMG_5823_zpsbe5e2aff.jpg
This time of year is my favourite for many reasons. One of which is being able to wear my many coats and a lot of them include fur collars or are fur! I just love the added texture to a look and this outfit post today resembles this. The weekend just gone I spent most of it with my family and my dad's puppy who is a little menace but utterly adorable!

My outfit is a collection of older items in my wardrobe I just fancied wearing because they went with my fur coat, from Blue Vanilla! I love the style of this coat as it's different to others I have had. It actually has a shape and a lovely 60's style with cute large buttons, which is adorable. 

Coat - Blue Vanilla
Skirt - Hand made
Tshirt - (can't remember as 2 years old) Sorry!
Cardie - Primark
Shoes - Missguided

Florals & Fur

 photo IMG_5621_zps35c06169.jpg
On the rare occasion that I get a free day with my boyfriend, Chris, I love to get a bit dressed up and spend the time together going for a nice lunch or wondering the local shops. Of course most of the time we have lazy days but I really appreciate any time together.
As a lot of you may already know I started working in London last week and fair to say the next 5 months are going to be very tiring. Keep up to date with my day to day life on instagram, paigecalvert1! :)

My go to outfit is always a floral tea style dress, cardie, cute tights and boots and this is exactly what I went for in this look. The dress is a beautiful style from Sugarhill Boutique that is perfect for autumn, with warmer coloured florals. To make a look more quirky I always go for a slightly different tights style and these polka dot ones are my favourite! Lastly, some pretty pearls and a bowler hat makes it more dressy and pretty for a lunch date and you are good to go.

Coat - Oh My Love

Pearl Necklace - Present from my mum

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.

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!
