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!

Every cloud has a silver lining.

Well, the cold days are creeping in and I take it back slightly what I said, as much as I love winter clothing I can't stand cold hands and feet! It's blog posts like this one today that make it all worth while, with pastel pretties to brighten the day. Even though it is getting colder and the days shorter, I wont wear dreary, boring clothes for anyone! I was so happy last year when it was made acceptable to wear pastel in winter for the first time, with the famous 'pink boyfriend coat' seen everywhere. This year the trend is back in full force which makes me very pleased indeed.

If there is one thing every girl should have, it is a good quality coat. In the UK it is vital that it gets you through all weathers including wind, rain and cold! This pale blue polka dot beauty from today's outfit is an all rounder and just about ticks all the boxes. It's from Joules, one of my families favourite brands and they are good old reliable with all the athletically pleasing elements that you would want also. This particular style is Wind proof, shower proof and breathable which as sad as this sounds made me very excited. And although these photos were taken on a sunny autumn day, I got to test it out yesterday just when the showers came over the UK. Even though the weather was dark and depressing, all I could look forward to is testing out the coat when going to the local shop! It lived up to it's expectations and did exactly what it said, keeping me dry. As it is also in my favourite colour with the added cutness of polka dots i'd say this is a complete treat and one I intend on cherishing this winter. 
When worn over a pretty dress you get this dreamy retro feel. Grey tights and boots are all that is needed to complete the look and of course a pastel bag to go with it's sweetness. I can't wait to team it over a vintage jumper and black jeans for a more preppy style.

A special thanks to Ailera Stone and Beaxoxo for a wonderful day photoshooting! We went to this adorable cupcake shop in Chelsea called Peggy Porschen for photos and chit chat. The day was for shooting a lookbook for Beauxoxo winter styles that will be released soon. The cupcake shop matched it perfectly as well as my outfit so all in all a top day!

P.S I just checked the website and the coat has now been reduced! Totally worth the price.
