This is a happy time for me for multiple reasons. 1. I've finally managed to venture out and shoot some pictures, and 2. GRAFEA. I HAVE A BABY GRAFEA!!!!!!!
On a slightly damper note, I was supposed to be going to London today for an event, but I've been so unwell recently, and I need time to reboot my system! I decided I'd shoot the pictures for the outfit I was going to wear to it, and share it with you all on my blog! 

I've just realised pretty much all of the clothes I'm wearing are from ASOS! Ha! Anyway, I literally purchased this dress for the sole purpose of wearing it to the event, but I'm actually so in love with it. It's so me, and the fact that it's a simple monochrome makes it easily pair-able with all of my brightly coloured Grafea's!
I have near-enough every single colour coat, but I was oddly missing a black one! I bought this one a while back from ASOS, and it comes in handy when I'm going for simplicity.
I popped this long-sleeved white top underneath to add a layer, and to bring out the white in the dress! It's just a good ol' basic from Primark.

The shoooOooOooOooOES. (That was so necessary). 
If you haven't seen these floating around the blogsphere.. where you been girl?! They're of course the highly coveted ASOS 'Ka Ching' boots! I'd wanted these since I'd laid my eyes on them, but unfortunately my bank balance was screaming no.. Well, when I'd seen that they were out of stock, my love for them grew dramatically, (much like a child who can't have what they want!). I was actually in Tunisia when I purchased them, thank the Lord for free wi-fi! They're very comfortable, and so versatile with the chunky heel. 

Obviously the main focus of this outfit is the bright blue beautiful bag! My dreams came true when offered a baby of my choice! (A bag.. not an actual baby..), and since I'd been after a blue one for a while, it was the clear winner! The baby Grafea bags are their new line of miniature 'Hari' bags. The collection currently consists of blue, lilac, pink, white, black, red and wine, but they're rapidly adding more colours, so you're never going to be short for choice! 
I own the 'bigger' Hari bag in lilac, and although the baby is undeniably smaller, it's still the perfect size to fit all of your essentials and more! As much as I'm devoted to my lilac rucksack, I can't help but feel the smaller size is more beneficial whilst trying to push through queues, or dash past people! Seriously, I think I have a Grafea addiction. I have my eyes firmly on 'Wine'. Big or small, I need it!

PS! The baby Grafea bags are currently on offer, so I urge you to buy them all....... NOW!

(Also, they're good for dogs too!)

Hey! Apologies for the little lack of posts on my blog.. well about 3 days maybe? Not good!
I've been struggling with the weather and timing, so I haven't managed to get out and shoot any pictures! I'm assuming this is greatly adding to my low mood.. 
Anyway, I was doing some online browsing, (as always), and was practically frothing at the mouth at the insanely beautiful, (and cheap), coats on SheInside!! I added them all to my bag, but even the grand total of £6 in my bank account wasn't going to cover the amount. I decided, in the meantime, I would make a little wish-list on my blog featuring all of my favourites! Enjoy!

(This one is my ULTIMATE favourite).

I should really have just called this blog post, 'insert witty/cool title here'.. probably would have been better!
Anyway, it kind of sucks that I'm no longer reminiscing over holiday snaps, whilst typing up these blog posts. Yep, the holiday is officially over, I need time to grieve. 
GRIEVING OVER. How can I be sad when I have fabulous clothes? Of course, clothes aren't everything.. but damn, they sure cheer up a gloomy day.

I arrived home from work to a package from the lovely people at NaaNaa Clothing, instant good mood! If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen me wearing the summery version of this beautiful playsuit. I'm not normally a strapless kind of gal by any means, but for some reason, these playsuits work! (In my opinion, that is). Obviously, I'm not going to be rocking my summer gear this time of year, but it never hurts to own it in a more seasonal shade, right? I think since being a blogger, my legs have become immune to the cold, so I no longer feel the need to destroy an outfit with tights! Incredibly beneficial when the majority of my outfits consist of items that don't cover up my legs!
The fit is absolutely perfect, and I feel surprisingly comfortable in it! Top marks from me.

My fluffy, marshmallow, snowy goodness jacket is one I have featured before, but I figured it looked super cute with this outfit, and definitely added a wintery twist! Anyway, who said you can only feature things once?!

I'm actually dedicating an entire paragraph to these shoes.. I might even write a book.. or a song.. 
They are the most comfortable shoes I have worn in my ENTIRE life. Please read that sentence three times, or as many times as you need to, to understand just how comfortable they are. 
I attended the Linzi Shoes Press Day back in July, (I believe!), and it was quite obvious what my favourite pair of shoes were! Whilst they were releasing their new collection over the previous months, I was adamant I would wait until my beloved shoes were released before choosing a pair! It honestly came to the point where I was checking the website every single day.. I know, I had a problem. But it's okay! I have the shoes! Panic over! 
Alright, I'll stop being 'dramatic'.
Basically, you need the shoes. The shoes need you. 
They're almost identical to a pair of Dr Martens, (chelsea boot style, of course!).
Besides when I was in Africa, I've worn them every single day since receiving them, and we couldn't be happier together!

This is getting weird now. It's almost 1am. I'm delusional. Enjoy!

A couple of weeks ago, I placed an overdue order on Fashion Union and I purchased quite a few autumnal pieces! I'm currently struggling to not only afford all of the beautiful items being thrust upon my eyes, but to find space for them too! I'm in the process of getting my bedroom re-done so I'm able to fit more of my clothes in, but I could probably do with a walk-in-wardrobe, and that's just for coats!

As I was saying, I picked up a few autumnal pieces from Fashion Union, and I'm pleased that they're stocking some cute seasonal two-pieces! It was a tough decision between this one, and a green zig-zag set, but I was swayed by the more earthly shades. 
I'd be incredibly surprised if you hadn't seen this coat knocking about the blogging world as yes, it's the famous 'Kim Kardashian' Missguided camel coat! I purchased this as soon as it was released on to the website, and I absolutely adore it. It truly is very Kim, and the lack of hardware/buttons makes it look so chic. 
I decided to play on the more neutral colours with this look, and with camel being super on-trend this season, it was quite an obvious choice!

Both my hat and my shoes are from Primark. The hat is a very recent purchase whilst I was doing a bit of retail therapy in Manchester! I've wanted a camel fedora/floppy hat for absolutely ages, but the only one I ever liked was from American Apparel, and lets face it, I'm no millionaire.. so spotting this was like hitting the jackpot!
My shoes are 'the' chunky shoes which sold out almost immediately! When I first bought them, I got very little wear out of them because I was on a black chunky shoe high, but they're definitely making their way back into my staple wardrobe! 
My bag is an oldie but goodie from H&M, cheap and cheerful! Everyone needs a simple black bag.. I just wish mine was a Grafea, haha!

As I've rabbited on about, I've been on the hunt for some new/unique locations for my blog pictures, and discovering this creepy, colourful surrounding called for an impromptu shoot! 
I purchased this super sparkly crop top whilst browsing in Primark. I'm a sucker for anything holographic, shiny, sparkly.. you name it! My boyfriend thinks I'm like a magpie.. quite true actually! The price was a pleasant surprise at only £8, a pittance compared to the outrageous price tags in the likes of American Apparel!
Since I wore the most simple outfit ever, I decided to jazz it up with the showy crop top, and my beloved Grafea. 

Unfortunately the coat hasn't come across as fabulous in these pictures as I'd have liked, but seriously girls, if you get the chance, head down to H&M and pick this baby up! I was so beyond shocked when I discovered it was only £24.99!! This is up there with the £90 Topshop coats, and I managed to track it down in my size in my local store after failing to in the Manchester branch! With a little help of 20% student discount, it would have been stupid to leave it behind.. regardless of the 1,000,000 coats I have already acquired this season. 

By the state of my hair, I'm sure you've all cottoned on that the weather wasn't particularly kind to me, so I do apologise for looking so poop. We did try to shelter underneath some lorry.. type.. thing.. but still ended up soaked anyway!
