Winter Style Challenge with Bonobos!

Coat - Primark | Shirt - ASOS | Jumper - Charity Shop | Trousers - ASOS | Heels - ASOS (old)

I have recently taken part in the Bonobos Winter Style Challenge for their autumn/winter mens suit collection. Bonobos is a menswear brand based in New York that sells a wide range of mens shirts, trousers and tailored suits and blazers.

As part of my style challenge I chose one piece from their autumn/winter line of suits and put together an outfit to compliment the piece. I chose The Nottingham Blazer which can be found here.
I love the versatility of the blazer which gave me a lot to work with in terms of colours and textures.

I kept my look quite smart with my amazing new Primark camel coat and my skinny ASOS trousers. The chunky white knit jumper which I bought from a charity shop a while back is a perfect basic for layering in these colder months and a great piece for your capsule wardrobe.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Coat - Charity Shop | Top - Charity Shop | Scarf - Charity Shop | Trousers - Zara (old) | Shoes - ASOS | Sunglasses - ASOS 

Just a short and sweet post today, a very thrifty one too!

Before heading to my volunteer job I have a snoop round the charity shops. Out of sheer luck I spotted this amazing maxi coat for only £10! It comes with a detachable fur colar and the colour is just perfect. I'm quite a believer in destiny, maybe destiny brought me to this coat? who knows...

I'm obsessed with turtle necks. I love this one I picked up in a local charity shop. It's a little smaller than I would like but it's great for wearing with high waisted jeans and great for the autumn/winter months.

Hope you all had a fab weekend! Mine consisted of work, work and more work! Love don't pay the bills as they say...

OUTFIT | Beggin' for Thread

Jacket - Primark | Tshirt - Charity Shop | Jeans - ASOS | Shoes - ASOS | Scarf - Charity Shop

If you read my last post you will know that I've recently got a new tripod so sorry if my photo's are a little skew-iff!

I spotted this jacket in Primark when I was up in Edinburgh for my anniversary with my boyfriend. I've been on the hunt for the perfect camel coat for so long and I've finally found it! I love how it just smartens up any outfit and gives it more structure. The colour is perfect for autumn/winter and will forever be a staple in my wardrobe!

I've started volunteering at my local Barnardo's so while I was sorting out the shop floor I spotted this scarf and I just had to buy it! There were a couple more that I'd spotted so I may just have to go pick those up too next week!

Hope you all had an awesome weekend! I finally managed to spend some spare time with my boyfriend and went out for some dinner and drinks. He's off to Amsterdam for the second time this year, hopefully I'll get to go next year *fingers crossed*

OUTFIT | Jungle Fever

Top - Motelrocks | Jeans - ASOS | Denim Shirt - Charity Shop | Nikes - JDSports

I apologize in advance for the horrendous state of my roots. I'm currently in the midst of trying to decide what to do with my hair, keep it blonde or go slightly darker.
I also got a new tripod as my old one had seen better days so I'm trying to get used to this one. I decided to go with a Gorillapod tripod in the hopes that it will get me to more scenic areas without having to carry around a massive tripod with me. So far it's proving a wee bit difficult trying to find places to sit it so we will see how it goes!

Motelrocks were having a sale so I managed to grab myself a few bits. One being this cool jungle print oversized tee. I don't normally go for things like this but I'm trying to get a bit more variation in my wardrobe with different colours, patterns and textures. Statement tshirts are great to throw on with basics and just head out the door when your in a hurry.

Hope you all have a lovely week!
