Have You Got Your Winter Coat Yet?
Well, I have! Sort of. As you may have read in previous posts I’m all for comfortable clothing these days. Nothing comes more comfortable than a sung winter coats and jackets. That was one of my top items to shop for and did I get a bargain?! It is all down to @ldnsamplesales. It is a company that shares the latest designer sample sales. To be honest, when I saw that Phillip Lim was having a sample sale I wasn’t sold just because I didn’t want to spend any more money (as I have of recent) but then you know what happens when you and your girls together lol. Shopping! I ended up in the Phillip Lim sample with this amazing rabbit fur shearling waistcoat which retails at £1,200 but I got it for £50.00!
I kept it simple and rocked a wide length PJ style trousers from MissGuided and a low cut oversized top. For a dressy look, I styled it with Pigalle’s which is a perfect look for a winter date night fit. But champion casual vibes, I do regularly wear the waistcoat with sneakers/vans, jeans, and a T-shirt. This stunning Phillip Lim gem jacket dresses up your day look so easy, which is great as I don’t have to put that much thought into your day look when I wear it.

Mac Jackets are oh so necessary when the sun is ‘sometimish’ and the wind is more consistent than the sun.
A few weekends ago it was a very busy one. Non stop running around starting with shooting content for the blog and writing reviews and insights for the #lifeofamarketinggirl segment, which i hope you guys are enjoying! Then I whisked my way to the other side of London and had an afternoon brunch hosted by a lovely blogger friend @bdblggr you may be following her if not, you should do so! We ate and talked for ages, not really about but life and evolving as we are in our mid 20’s. Lastly I then ended Westfield shopping with my friends shopping!
I really didn’t want to look ‘matchy, matchy’. There was a voice in my head that was saying’ mix it up, wear something random. And that’s exactly what I did. I knew I wanted to be comfortable so wearing tight clothes was not a desire. I threw on this stripy shirt from Zara which is so easy to wear with anything. I paired the top with comfortable stretchy jeans from Zara (that shop is giving me luxury visuals right now with their pieces) and completed my look with Next’s blue Mac jacket and leather Zebra pumps.
I was comfortable, chic and free. A style combo I recommend for any city girl running round trying to do it all!

I think change has been one of my biggest teachers of my 2016. To which I have experienced good and bad change that has now opened my eyes to what really matters in life.
Recently I did an interview for a dear friend and talked about my experienced check it out here. My career is something that I have spoken about before regarding my highs and lows. So I won’t get into that all over again. Back to the subject of change is inevitable and you have to move in that change. As we get older our prospective and fulfilment in life evolves. It is not about expensive shoes or having the hottest bags. To me family, love, true friendships and enjoying real moments.
For me that’s the mind-set that brings happiness, peace and love. Through all my experiences I have never felt the power of these intangible emotions flow through my life, as strongly as they are now.
Wolford Patti Tights
Now to the fashion! New Year and new fashion.
I’m back collaborating with one of my favourite brands Wolford. They have launched new SS17 hosiery trends that are 10 steps ahead of the game. We all know and have seen the net tights hype be one of the biggest fashion trends of recent. Wolford have really pushed the boundaries and gone on to create a new style that has a lot of flare and swag.
I had a beautiful deluxe suite at the Dorset Hotel that I had the luxury of spending the day at. IWanted to push my creative vision when capturing the detail of the tights. It is not about being sexy here, but creating a moment that shows how the tights shaped around a body and adds to your style, no matter how you style it. ‘Patti‘has been released in the sock stockings but will be released early spring of the full hosiery tights.

When spring begins I always feel a sense of excitement and happiness. The sun tends to bring a feeling of relaxation, which is needed!
With more sunny days ahead I have been trying to keep to my style objective, experimenting with brighter and fun colours. I think I am doing ok so far (always room for improvement)! I paired a nude mini leather skirt, with a black silk cami and a white blazer. I actually miss wearing a blazer, it really completes for a simple, classy and chic look. To add some edge I wore black open toe cut-out knee high boots which I got for £35.00 from £120.00 in Topshop’s mid-season sale! I was super happy and surprised by the final price, what a steal! If you are looking for seasonal gems, I think now is a good time to get shopping.
My advice – Get summer glam ready but on a budget, dont spend more than you need to.
Topshop – Boots (something similar)
