OOTD | Overdrive

 Jumper - Missguided // Shirt - River Island // Trousers - River Island // Shoes - ASOS // Hat - Missguided // Necklace - H&M
Hello my lovelies!
So I've been trying ever so hard not to overspend this month but it's the season of sales which makes things even harder when you're trying not to spend. However while browsing the Missguided sale I spotted a few bits which I had to buy!
I picked up this really nice dusky pink knitted jumper in the sale. I've been looking out for the perfect pink jumper for ages (I'm very fussy on my pinks) and this goes really well with my hair colour. It's great for the spring to summer transition as it's still quite a bit colder up in Scotland but adds a bit of colour to your outfits too!
I'd totally forgotten about my leather trousers from River Island. They are just the perfect basic, great for when you want to layer or add texture to your outfits and I love how matte they are as I find some 'leather' items can still look a bit too shiny. I also can't get enough of my ASOS plimsols which still need a lot of breaking in but no pain no gain as they say!

Hope you all had an awesome weekend!

Thrifty Finds // The Little Black Coat

So if you read my last outfit post you'll probably know that I headed down to the West End of Glasgow a few weeks ago for some thift/charity shopping. I managed to pick up this awesome black jacket in the 99p shop and it fits great as an over sized coat. I'd say I'm a massive jackets/coats hoarder and one colour I don't have is black so this was a great find!

I do apologies for the sheer bad quality of this photo, black just seems to be the most impossible colour to photograph. Also as part of my blog New Years Resolutions I aimed to start a couple of new series posts so let me know your thoughts on this type of posts or more you would be interested in seeing, I love getting feedback from you guys!

Fashion Lusts #10

Hello lovelies!
So as you can maybe tell there is a slight baby pink trend going on with this wishlist. I'm a sucker for anything pastel pink right now and such an amazing colour for spring/summer.

I've also been incorporating a lot of basics with key items lately with my outfits and have been opting for the comfy/casual look especially when it comes to shoes. I've been dying to get myself a pair of vans for so long and I just love these checkered ones. They remind me so much of the circa 2008 emo/scene faze I went through but I'm again a sucker for any comfy footwear and they are just a really handy thing to have to just throw on and will last a lifetime.

I've been on a few nights out recently after a while of being a hermit and I've realized I've not really got any going out shoes. Pairs upon pairs of flats, trainers, boots but nothing that goes well with anything I want to wear to go clubbing. I found these awesome Jeffrey Campbell-esque platforms off ebay and just had to add them to my watch list!

What's your favorite item? Hope you all had an awesome weekend!

Outfit of the Day | Coco Made Me Do It

Tweed Blazer - Vintage // Tshirt - SheInside // Trousers - Asos // Skater Shoes - Asos // Beanie - eBay

Hello lovelies!
Sorry this is a bit of a late post, I was meant to have this up days ago but life just happens sometimes!
So I headed up to Glasgow for a good old shop with a friend of mine last Monday and had a really nice time. The weather was cold but the sun was out and I knew we would be doing a lot of walking so I decided not to take a jacket (I made the right decision for once!) and we hit the West End for a bit of vintage shopping. It was my first time down west end Glasgow and we didn't even to get through half of the shops because we were so tired but I managed to pick up some really awesome pieces!

When I'm out and about comfort is my main priority as well as looking somewhat put together. I picked up these trousers off Asos when they were having one of their deals and these RRP for £32 but I managed to get them for £16 so I was super chuffed! I was also quite skeptical of them and wasn't sure if I would like the material but I was in no way disappointed. These are perfect for looking smart but not too overly 'school trouser/just stepped out the office' looking which makes it a great versatile piece.
I'd also dying to get my hands on a tweed blazer for ages and wasn't willing to pick up the first one I saw as I knew I wanted it to be an item that would last and hopefully stay without me falling out of love with it but I'm so happy I invested in it.

Do you have an item in your wardrobe that you love? Hope you are all having an awesome week!
