Stella and Spot

Yesterday seemed like a casual morning as I was off to work at 2pm. The snow hadn't really hit us here and I decided to dig out my beloved converse that haven't seen the light of day for a few months. I love the dot print on them as it is slightly unusual and the grey works with anything. I also wore some old Boden trousers which are really starting to have seen better days which is such a shame and a jumper from Kin at John Lewis. I love this range, it is very similar in style to Whistles but certainly more affordable. In fact, that reminds me to check out the spring go google...

I have recently been made aware of the most beautiful range of jewellery by a company called Stella and Dot. I was lucky enough to get the see much of the spring range at a party recently and fell I love with so much of it. I ordered a beautiful yellow necklace which I was pleased to receive really quickly and a lovely simple gold bracelet. I thought this was the perfect accompaniment to my simple outfit. I cannot recommend the jewellery enough, it is so pretty and seems so much better quality than anything on the high street. I'm not knocking good old Primark for its £3 bargains but a girl needs a treat hey!

Love leather

So finally I have sorted my photos and got everything. Connected, uploaded, saved (I think?!) and working so the blog is up and running again. It's lovely that so many of you have been reading and enjoying and and asking about my updates. I love it that you are Kent up to date on all my wardrobe experiments!

It's still well and truly winter hey, that sucks! I am longing for the spring and my next quest is to find some lovely coloured ballet pumps as I never seem to find any that fit me? Any recommendations? 

Sometime late last year I managed to find my dream leather skirt. I seem to have a list of perfect 'wants' and love it when I find one. This is from Whistles which you will know by now is one of my favourites. They had a great 25% off promotion and so it made it a more reasonable price. It's bad that despite buying it sometime ago I've only worn it a couple of times. I find that is is actually pretty versatile and have worn it for an evening out and a day shopping. I love the slight a-line style and it is a gorgeous buttery soft leather.

For the daytime look I've teamed it with a grey Whistles tee and a necklace from H&M. For the more evening look I'm wearing a fab yellow top from Primark and thick black tights. The necklace is from Primark. I also wore a thick ponte fabric blazer and print scarf also from Whistles. You'll notice the piles of clothes on the back as I had a wardrobe explosion! The rail literally gave way. I don't think this means anything ha,ha!
