Winter Warmers.

It feels like only yesterday we were suffering from a sweltering summer and sleeping on top of the sheets because it was just too hot, and even wearing a thin tee was too much in the heat. Somehow, winter has snuck up on us again and it’s that time of year when we start looking for last winter’s thick knitted jumpers and cosy scarves. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve added a few winter perfect pieces to my net-a-porter wish list, and with winter well and truly upon us, now seems like the perfect time for me to start looking for cheaper alternatives. Check out some of my favourites below.

Five Favourites Thursday.

Somehow I managed to miss doing one of these last month, so I decided to mix my favourite things from both September and October.

GRADUATING

Earlier this month I graduated from uni and it was such a surreally incredible experience. It seems strange to me that I spent three years away from home learning so much about the world and about life in general; and that that time of my life is now finished. I had so many experiences at uni and it will always be a period of my life that I’ll look back on fondly. Not only that, but it just hit me that I first started this blog a few days before I was due to start uni, and looking back on old posts, it’s so cool seeing how much I’ve grown, developed and evolved into the woman I am today (whoa, even saying that now gives me chills!)

Graduation

CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST

Omg I only realised this series was back the other day when I was randomly on YouTube. I ended up watching five episodes from the new season and found myself laughing the whole way through. Chrisley Knows Best is perfect if you’re looking to unwind after a long day, and I can guarantee you that you’ll be laughing all the way through.

MUSIC

October particularly has been the best month in terms of music, what with the release of Florida Georgia Line’s sophomore album, my discovery of Royal Blood, and not to mention Ben Howard’s latest release. I definitely feel that I’ve been spoilt for choice this month!

HTGAWM

Or How To Get Away With Murder to those of you are unaffiliated with this latest creation from Peter Nowalk who has worked on a number of great shows such as Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy. I have to admit that when I first heard about this show, I told myself that I was not going to watch it; and even as I was watching the first episode, I told myself that I wouldn’t like it because it was going to be shit. Obviously I don’t listen to myself because not only did I watch the first episode, but I’ve watched every episode since and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. The cast, script and storyline are great, and I loved that I was so pleasantly surprised. For a reference point, it’s a sexier version of Damages.

TORY BURCH

There’s no denying that I’ve had my eye on this bag for the last couple of weeks now, and with my birthday coming up next Monday I’m about THIS close to justifying the purchase even though all my financials are screaming at me not to. But what can I say, the heart wants what the heart wants.

        

I can’t wait see what November has in store for me. Happy Thursday!

Alaïa, Louboutin, Rossi.

I don’t know about you, but these last eight days have been insanely tiring, and I think I’m only just beginning to feel the comedown of it all. What with graduating (I’ll share some pictures with you soon), reading for classes, driving, graduation parties, more reading, thinking about future careers, thinking in general; I think I can be forgiven for just wanting to curl up in bed and sleep for the next month. Sadly that’s not exactly an even remotely viable option so instead I’ll just kick back and relax with the help of net-a-porter’s ‘What’s New’ section. This week I’ve become completely enamoured with heels (which in part could be because I basically spent the majority of last week in them), so I was happy to see four pairs that I wouldn’t mind receiving in the post *hint hint*.

Wtf Wednesday.

Today has definitely been a ‘what the actual fuck has happened today’ kind of day, with a most apt description being A Series of Unfortunate Events – but I won’t go into that because having to actually live through it was already bad enough. Anyway, what better way to forget about the randomness and stresses of the day, than by sharing a few of my favourite net-a-porter pieces from this week?

Monday’s Black.

My brain’s done WAY too much thinking and stressing today, so what better way to chill out than scrolling through net-a-porter and adding new pieces to my wish list? Believe me when I say that it is coincidental that all the pieces I’ve chosen are black… maybe it’s my subconscious’ way of trying to tell me something, I don’t know…

Blue Cream Basics.

I live for basics. In fact, you could most readily describe my entire wardrobe as a basics haven. Even when I do dress up to the nines and don my highest heels, there’s always still a sense of simpleness that comes from pairing basic pieces like a white tee, cut off shorts (which I must admit I’ve only recently become OBSESSED with), and striped dresses with canvas sneakers. Today’s picks really emulate my somewhat lazy style with: a striped navy dream from A.P.C., that I just so happen to won a similar design by Jack Wills; a cutesy mini bag in the much sought-after trapeze shape by Michael Kors; and finally the must have denim shorts, courtesy of Victoria Beckham. Check it out below.

Pink.

I’m sure we’re all more than aware that glitter is my favourite colour. However, whenever those really annoying people continue to press me about a “real” favourite colour, I always go with pink – I mean after all, who could hate the colour? Anyway, as you can probably guess, yesterday net-a-porter offered a beautiful assortment of pink picks and here they are. Stella McCartney wowed me twice with her matching coat and dress pink set (FLOTUS perfect or what? I’m thinking Jackie), that could really only be worn with each other unless you have an equally chic pink extra to wear them with. Then RED Valentino (who for today should probably be referred to as PINK Valentino) impressed me with such a cute pink mini dress that I’m looking for a cheaper alternative as we speak I type. Tory Burch rounds off the group with (what I think is my favourite of the lot) a silk jacket, great worn with jeans or a mini skirt, depending on the occasion.
