NOTD: Holiday Nails

Hey everyone,

As some of you may know, I spent the last week in Tenerife. I got my nails done before I went. I decided against Shellac as I like swapping my nail colours around on holiday. I chose this gorgeous colour called 'Lola' and I also had it on my toes. I think it looks really nice with a tan and is just a really girly pretty colour!

New coat (finally)

I've been looking for a winter coat for about 4 months and have only just found one that I like! If you follow me on Instagram you might of already seen it.

It's from Miss Selfridge and I love it to bits! I couldn't decide on a jacket with contrasting leather or a fur collar so when I saw this I had to have it. There are leather shoulders with a black fur collar. The material on the rest of the coat is wool I think? I'm awful with stuff like that but feels like wool to me!
It's fur on the inside so I'm sure it will keep me nice and warm in the winter.

Favourite Autumn Trends

Hey everyone,

I'm so sorry about my lack of posting recently. Obviously I've just gone back to school so I have a lot of school work and will not be able to post as much. In this post I will be talking about trends coming straight from the A/W12 catwalk and how you can incorporate them into your casual looks!

This is one of my favourite looks from Fashion Week; Cara Delevingne is also one of my favourite models! Trench coats are very in this autumn as is fur and this Burberry one is stunning! Sadly, not everyone can afford Burberry so here's some alternatives!

This is by Zara for only £69.99! It's not fur but is neutral colours and a lot more reasonably priced than the Mulberry coat.

This coat is from Mango at John Lewis. It is not fully covered in fur but the collar is which really makes it a statement piece.

This is the most expensive out of all the coats so far and it's from Asos It's £149. It's really stunning and the detail on the flaps are gorgeous.

Another trend is heavy knits. These are both off the Topshop Unique A/W12 catwalk. Khaki is also huge this Autumn as is the cross type print. These are also very expensive so here's some alternatives...

This jumper's from Topshop. They do it in lots of different colours and its really versatile ,it costs £36.

This next jumper is from Asos. I love the neckline on it and the laid back effect of it. They also do this in purple and its £42.

This jumper reminds me of the black and red Topshop Unique jumper above! It's from Topshop and is £42.

Obviously, peplum is a HUGE trend as its everywhere! Peplum is literally, everywhere but here are a few of my favourite peplum pieces...

This metallic peplum top is gorgeous and would be such a nice top you could put with a simple outfit to make it a bit more fun. It's by Rare** at Topshop and is £30.

I think this peplum skirt is a statement in your wardrobe. This one's from Topshop and is £28.

This skirt is gorgeous and tweed is also very on trend. It's £34.99 at Asos.
