What I Wore: Leather Jacket, Top, Jeans & Bag – c/o Oasis, Leopard Print Shoes – c/o Daniel Footwear, Nails – c/o Juku Nails
A few years ago I was a no-jeans-fit-me-right kinda girl, and would find shopping for them a bit of a pain and hence, never really bothered with it. But since then, I’ve taken to wearing jeans as my go-to casual bottoms, and I’m pretty set in how I like my jeans now. Which is why when Oasis got in touch a few weeks ago inviting me to a little showcase of their newly revamped denim collection for Autumn/Winter, I was all ears!
I picked out a couple pairs from their new collection (more on the second pair soon!) and then set about matching up my grey jeans with an all-over Oasis outfit. Not one to appear too same-y, I teamed my grey jeans & top with a black leather jacket and tassel bag (who am I kidding, I LOVE same-y). And because I got the feeling there might-possibly-definitely be an overpowering dark theme going on, I popped on my favourite print in the form of the most comfortable slip-ons, the leopard print shoes of dreams! <3 x

If you saw my over-excited declaration of love for this outfit yesterday, I hope you agree with me now! It’s been a while since I’ve put together an outfit that I’m so happy with it’s worth blowing my own trumpet, but this one deserves it. And for me, it isn’t hard to see why; shades of red (my favourite colour, obvs) with a cream turtleneck and black pleated skirt, topped with the warmest faux fur leopard print coat. If you know me even a little bit you’ll know that combination is a guaranteed winner in my book!
The burgundy boots are from Clarks as part of the latest Take10 Challenge, and I’m honestly so happy with how comfortable they are despite the heel on them. And even though October is fast approaching, there’s still enough sun in the sky for a matching pair of sunglasses to be very necessary (I’m definitely attempting cool-wintery-woman-in-shades-chic here). Having revisited these photos I’m now sat here in my dressing gown planning the next time I can wear this get-up! x
There’s no outfit in sight in today’s post, as I’m turning my attention to something I tend to begrudgingly refer to as my ‘wild mane’ – yep, it’s all about the hair! You might have spotted the news over on my Twitter last week, but I’m collaborating with Toni & Guy this Autumn/Winter to represent one of their product ranges- the Classic look. Having always had thick, long hair, I’m so happy to be getting involved with something that finally awards my hair for, well, being thick and long (things I usually complain a heap about!). And ever since I was generously sent the above products, I’ve been treating my hair SO well, I feel pretty bad for hating on it all this time! I’ve also got a very simple step-by-step blog post coming up showing you how I’ve been recreating the Classic A/W ‘Nordic Sleek’ every day…
But for now, announcing this exciting collaboration seemed the perfect opportunity to give a little something away. The photo below tells all: a set of Toni & Guy straighteners and their hero product, the cool defining cream for styling super sleek straight hair. To enter, you just need to follow me on Twitter and leave a comment on this post with your favourite hairstyle! I’ll pick and announce the winner next Friday 3rd October on my Twitter, good luck! : ) x
