banana tree









topshop belt (old)
topshop alvins (similar)
OPI bubble bath nails

I nabbed this jacket at the Next Ones to watch shoot I did a few weeks ago and promtly added it to my wardrobe. I've always wanted one of these "Chanel" Style boucle jacket's but I've never really found the one that fit my look right. They can be a touch ageing I think when styled the wrong way but I've got nothing but love for this one! The monochrome mix is just gorgeous and it makes the perfect texture  for the jacket. It's thick and surprisingly warm for just a little jacket. It feels super luxe on as well which makes me feel glamourous. I wore this outfit out for dinner with my friends Matt and Dal at the Banana Tree last week. I wanted something semi dressy incase we went on for drinks but also casual enough for dinner. This fitted the bill perfectly.

PS. Spot the ladder in my tights! Bloody fake nails! I promptly changed them after ;)

  9. i really like your blog and the way you create your outfit but i don't know why but you only wear dark clothes, i see you like a sensitive and cute princess, even though it is winter, your beautiful eyes will look better, with something green, pink, blue, purple :D think about it
    wish you all the best kisses :D
