Jumper: Very (old, similar here) | Shirt: Matalan, here | Jeans: Topshop, similar here | Boots: River Island (old, but I love these)

Hi everyone! Firstly I am so sorry for the awful photos taken from this phone camera, I broke my iphone last week and am using my mum’s old Samsung and the camera is awful! I cannot wait to get my DSLR camera for Christmas so I can start taking quality photos for this blog!

Onto this outfit – it was the 1st of December yesterday which means Christmas is practically around the corner, so what better way to get into the spirit of things than to wear lots of red? This ‘tomato red’ v-neck jumper is from last year and I love this layered look with a checked shirt underneath. I wore these with my ripped boyfriend jeans  (the knee holes are getting bigger and bigger every time I wear them!) and my old lace up boots. Coincidentally my nails were already painted red, but I had to add the red lipstick to match, of course! I wore Revlon Really Red.

I hope you’re all having a great week, I’m looking forward to going to the Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park on Friday, we’ve been the last few years, and this time we’re taking Lizzy to see the circus show there.

Thanks for visiting my friends! XO

How To Style Mocks (& Review)

imageLast week I was excited to be asked to review a pair of Mocks shoes. Have you heard of them yet? I hadn’t, so I headed over to their website and was happy to see that they look cool yet comfortable. There are so many colours to choose from and I opted for the Mocklite Classic ii in Coral, which comes with both red and light blue laces. I prefer the blue laces as I like the contrast against the pinky coral shoe.

This is what Mocks say about their shoes (from their website):

‘Womens Moccasins from Mocks are a stylish and practical new take on womens moccasins shoes.

Womens Mocks are the ideal casual footwear for a range of locations, from the bar to the beach. Mocks take the classic design elements of ladies moccasins shoes and add a modern twist with the materials and the colours that are used. Our womens Mocks are made from an innovative new material which we simply like to call Mocklite.

Our moccasins for women come in a range of colours so you can match your soul to your soles. Where ever they take you, you’ll look great and feel great in our take on womens moccasins shoes – that’s the Mocks effect.’

With this in mind, I put together two outfits which I think will look great for everyday wear, for travelling or to wear to the beach!

Slogan t-shirt: New Look | Boyfriend jeans: Topshop | Shoes: Mocks (c/o)

Floral dress: Yesstyle (similar) | Shoes: Mocks (c/o)

I think the Mocks look great with a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt, and I also like the way it dresses down my floral dress, which coincidentally matches the shoes perfectly!

These Mocks might remind you of the dreaded Crocs (which I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole) but I actually really like the look of these and they’re fun and comfortable to wear.

They are lemon scented (yes, really!) which is a nice touch, and are designed to be breathable. They are also machine washable which is a bonus and they are well made – I’m sure they’ll last for ages. The only thing is that I find the sides to come up a bit high and dig in a bit into my ankles, but I have narrow feet so this may not be a problem for others.

Prices for a pair start from £40, so it won’t break the bank. They also do kids Mocks (starting from size 10) so you can match with your minis!

Thank you for reading! What do you think of the Mocks? Which colour would you choose and how would you style them?

How I Styled a Striped Top

I absolutely love this outfit – it’s so simple yet I think it looks really put-together and chic. With the blazer it looks smart but the loose fit of the top and the boyfriend jeans make it casual enough for everyday wear. I bet most of you have a version of these three items already in your wardrobe but have you tried this combo yet? The leopard print heels add a bit of sassiness but the outfit would also look fantastic with any colour or even flats. Red shoes would look great! My Louis Vuitton Eva clutch goes perfectly with this look and after adding a couple of rose gold accessories – done!

Here’s another angle of the outfit which I shared on Instagram – are you following me there yet?
