Plaid-a-Plenty


Hey everyone, hope you've all had a good weekend?
It seems a lot of Christmas trees went up this weekend, haven't quite got to that yet myself, still choosing colour scheme!

I have been doing a bit of research though, as I had a request for advice on plaid shirts. And no better time for a bit of plaid than the festive season, right?

Penneys/Primark

So, I've been looking around to find a few different styles and colour combinations to suit all tastes. I have my eye on some of these myself, so have a peek and see what you think.

The first and obvious choice for December is red, and whether you prefer navy or black, you'll find at least one you like, I'm sure of it! I've put a few sample looks together to show a few styling options so you can get the most from your chosen shirt..

The failsafe option of jeans is an easy option and one I usually go with, but you can branch out to leggings, a denim or knit skirt for alternative day wear.

How about trying leather trousers or even some tailored trousers or pencil skirt - to bring your plaid into your work wardrobe as the holiday season approaches.




I particularly like the pleated skirt option below, one of my current obsessions! Once I find my perfect shirt, I'll be trying this one. I'll let you know how it goes :-)




And last but not least, if a plaid shirt isn't your thing, or you prefer a more neutral option, don't forget accessories can be a great way to add a trend in to your outfit..

Outfits of Christmasses past

Did you ever get one of those days where you just suddenly miss your childhood and wanna go back there for a while?
Been having one of those funny days today, probably from being stuck indoors a bit too much. Or maybe all Christmas ads are starting to wear me down!

It just occurred to me as I posted an OOTD pic on Instagram, it reminded me of one of my childhood go-to comfort outfits.

Attempting the London Look


Ambient mood lighting any time day or night. Indoors or out.
Even in the midst of an argument, the sun sets in a bluish/pinkish sky. While the birds sing sweetly. And the crisp autumn leaves twirl around, oblivious to the unfolding conversation.

Red Red Wine



For those of you who don't share my infatuation with pink/blush hues for Autumn, (and every other season), here are some alternatives I've come across in stores recently.

This time I've gone for Penneys/Primark, another of my fashion weaknesses, and a great option for quick trend pieces or wardrobe updates on a budget.

Keeping cosy

keeping cosy

A little outfit I put together based on this week's mood, and the Danish concept of Hygge we're seeing online lately. I've got to look into it a bit more, but so far I'm liking the idea, and they say Denmark is one of the happiest countries so it's worth some research!

This outfit includes my fave colour, which I'm sure you've picked up on by now. I'm really loving the fact that blush pink is hanging around this season. (As if I need an excuse to wear it).

I picked up a cosy knit like this in Penneys, haven't found the trainers yet but I've got pink brogues to wear in the meantime.

Oh and the coffee cup represents the Lindt hot chocolate I've yet to try.. I'll let ye all know how that goes!

What's your fave cosy winter outfit? (Or hot drink?) :-)

'Til next time,
E
