DESIGNER WISHLIST

1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Its very rare that I splurge on designer items but theres no harm in having a perv from time to time and for me,this usually takes place as a new season unveils.I love having a nose at what's on the catwalk and who cares if i'll never be able to afford those Marni Boots or that Isabel Marant dress? theres no harm in looking right? (and constantly teasing myself by creating wish lists ).
As much as I loathe the winter there is nothing like wrapping up and layering everything you own in an attempt to keep warm,I would wear a vest and a long sleeve top under this gorgeous shirt dress from Farfetch followed by my favourite sheepskin aviator jacket for added cosiness.

What designer pieces are you lusting over this A/W?

Ladies and Gentleman(thats if any gentleman read my blog),Autumn has officially arrived.
I Posed like a tosser in the wind and rain for these photos and all because I was digging my outfit that day,the lengths we go to for fashion ey?
Although the colder months are on their way I can't bring myself to put my ripped jeans aside,theres just something about these boyfriend jeans that I adore,they seem to make any outfit look cool and seeing as there is no way in hell that I can pull off white skinny jeans I'm stuck with these,yay!
I paired them with this faux sheepskin jacket which i'm currently living in,its lined with fur all the way through,even down the sleeves so its excellent at keeping the wind out and proves to be super toasty.

What will you be wearing this A/W?

MEET THE MUNSONS

FEEDING PLATTER : GETTINGPERSONAL

I don't think I have ever introduced my dogs on my blog,there has been a couple of photos here and there or they have appeared in outfit posts but they have never had a proper introduction and its about time they said hello,meet Betty and Burt aka "The Munsons" (mine and Paul's last names joined together...yup sad I know)

What more can I say than these two are the loves of my life,if you're not a doggy person you won't understand but the love I have for these two is ridiculous,they are what I look forward to seeing the most when I come home from work (and Paul of cause)For some people its babies/children,for me it's these too lovely lumps of fur,they are my everything <3 font="">

Lets just take a moment to appreciate comfy trousers.....done it?

My legs spend their days strangled in skin tight jeans so today I gave them a break and slid into these gorgeous,rusty beauties,they are so god damn comfy and are an acceptable "comfy trouser" you can actually leave the house in without the risk of looking like a dirty slob,this happens quite frequently when I do the food shop in my trackies and hoodie(just envision Bianca Jackson from Eastenders).

I'm not 100% comfortable with the 70's trend,I love how it looks on other girls but because I dress like a man 9 times out of 10,I find it difficult to incorporate into my outfits,so for all you masculine lovers this is my spin on the trend that isn't going anywhere soon.

How do you wear the 70's trend?

CURRENT FAVES

chic swig hip flask yardley hand cream pom pom keyring katelouiseblog the body shop camomile

I've always been a huge fan of chic but this baby got lost in my record collection until a few weeks back when I stumbled across it,let me just say I have been dancing around like a loony to this album since finding it and the love for it is still there.If you are into uplifting disco/funk and you have never listened to Chic then get yourself on Amazon or iTunes and buy this album NOW,you won't regret it.

If you think a hip flask is something an old alcy carries around filled full of polish vodka then think again,hip flasks just got cool and I managed to bag myself this little beauty recently,I wouldn't say I carry it around on a daily basis,if that was the case I should probably get myself to an AA meeting however it will be perfect for my winter holiday to Cornwall this year filled with my favourite Gin or whisky,brilliant to warm the cockles on a chilly beach walk.

Now I've had the oil version of this and I have been in love with it for months,the only problem being IT BLOODY LEAKS EVERYWHERE!!! So I decided to nip into TBS recently and pick up the tin version instead,why didn't I get this before? the same amazing product in a less messy packaging and perfect for travelling with.

I'm a sucker for a good hand cream and here I have met my match,my hands were in desperate need of nourishment while I was shopping the other day so I popped into savers and picked this up for the bargainous price of £1, probably the best pound I have ever spent,it is extremely softening,smells divine and keeps your hands moisturised for hours.If you buy anything this week, buy this!!

They are everywhere,on the catwalks,on bloggers and in every magazine I flick through so when they came into stock in New Look I immediately bought two,this lovely navy shade and a small grey one which is waiting to go in my new car (I GET MY NEW CAR THIS WEEK, GOD DAMN I'M SO EXCITED)that aside I think these fluffy little balls of fun make the perfect accessory for A/W and I will be buying them in every shade they come in.

What are your current favourites?
