I'm not the type of girl to wear heels and a dress on a night out. Yeah, I'll wear a cute little bodycon, but paired with converse or trainers to casj it down a bit. Dressing up and looking all posh just ain't for me and honestly, I will jump at the chance to wear jeans on a night out. I'm ngl, I went through a phase at uni where I pretty much had a night out uniform of high waisted skinny's and a crop top. Dw, I'm out of that rut now.

I invested in these Liquor N Poker babies a couple of months ago, and they actually featured in a more casual outfit (click here), but I needed to post something suitable for hitting the clubs cos it's winter. It's cold. These sequin beauts have massive rips in the thighs. They are not suitable for day time wear until, I'm gonna say, around Spring. They can only be worn outside when I've got a bottle or two of wine in me and the cold is no longer an issue.

So, I did initially want to pair them with a little strappy crop (the love of nights out in jeans and crop tops clearly hasn't died yet) but I literally couldn't find one anyway that I liked enough. I tried on this body on a whim cos I was getting very desperate, and the flower detail is pretty af. I really didn't think they would work well enough together, I was convinced a crop top was the way forward. Nope, I was wrong. I admit defeat. The body and the ripped sequin jeans of dreams are a match made in heaven.

P.s. Does anyway else hate shooting night out outfits in the Winter - I got a few odd looks like why tf is she dressed like that in 10 degree weather. Man, I wish people would just mind their own.

I've created a mermaid inspired NYE look because I like mermaids and I like glitter. It was actually really quick and easy to do and I deffo wanna recreate this is another time with different glitter/lipstick.

Products Used:

Silver Face Gems (not photographed)

The eye shadow was a lot darker and smokier than this, my stupid camera can never photograph eye shadow well for some reason. So, in a nutshell, a packed the highlight shade from my Kat Von D palette into the corners of my eyes to give a nice highlight, and covered my lid in the Base shade. I then layered High, from the Smokey palette, over the top to give some shimmer and a final layer of Amour. I blended Smoulder into the outer V because shimmery purple and mermaids just go hand in hand really. Obvs I did a classic cat eye, that's just a standard in most of my makeup looks. I duuno why, but my eyes always look a lot more tired when I'm not wearing eye liner, anyone else get that?

I do love a face gem, so I dotted five along the top of each lid. Tbh, I think this alone would look pretty sick for NYE without the glitter. To stick the glitter on, I used a concealer brush to 'paint' on some vaseline (yes, vaseline!) in a triangle underneath each eye - honestly, vaseline works a treat for sticking glitter onto ya face, and obvs it's really gentle so it won't irritate your skin!

For the lipstick, I couldn't not go for blue. IMO the blue lipstick just transforms it into a mermaid look!

I can't say that I'm the Christmas jumper type. Never owned one before this week, never had any intentions of owning one. Well I say that, but last year Zoella had this black jumper from Asos, cover big white pom poms. It was insane in the membrane. I needed it, but of course it sold out in 10 minutes like everything Zoella shows in her vids. Anyways, it's Christmas jumper day at work so this year I had to invest in one. Obvs I headed straight to Asos to try and find that beautiful pom pom number that's still in my head from last year. Nope, nothing. Can I just say, I think the Christmas jumper selection the high street shops are giving us this year is awful! I was hoping to find something a bit unique and out there from Asos, but they did not pull through. Asos, disappoint me.

Queue vintage. It didn't even cross my mind to go on the hunt for a vintage jumper, but after trawling through the Christmas jumper pages of Asos, Boohoo, New Look, Missguided, PLT, any other online shop I've missed out, and Asos again, I had a little look on Beyond Retro and found this beaut. Ten sizes too big, 20 quid, I couldn't say no. I like this jumper, I think it's a cool jumper. Like, yeah it's ugly, but it's got those cool vintage ugly kinda vibes. I like how it looks with converse and hoop earrings. And it's comfy af, I know I'm gonna end up wearing it all year round. Don't judge. 

So yeah, if you're struggling to find a Christmas jumper (because let's face it, the selection from the high street was pretty dire this year) go check out the vintage options!

I've fallen for pink. It's slowly crept into my life and taken over. I'm not lying, most of what I wear is pink (watch me now post no other outfits in pink...). Particularly dusty/muted pinks, I'm not all about dat bright fushia. Forget double denim, I'm making double pink a thing, and it can deffo work for winter. Obvs the standard for this time of the year is dark colours like burgundy/navy/grey/black, which back in the day I would've been all over, but I'm just not about that dark toned life anymore. Like, I'm obsessed with a nude/pink lip - I wouldn't touch a dark berry tone at the mo - and I just wanna wear pink man!

Wearing double of a colour is not as scary as it may first seem. The trick is to break the outfit up with two different tones. I actually bought this jumper in mind for work. I did not expect it to become one of my most worn, but I can't get enough, it's just well comfy and easy to throw on. I also added my leopard print coat for a bit of contrast, and I think it looks pretty damn good against the pink if I do say so myself. The fishnets under the trousers was also a given - another one of my current obsessions.

I think this is the third post I have included this Primark jumper in since I made the excellent decision to purchase it, soz not soz. It's one of those jumpers that you can just live it. So soft, cosy - the perfect jumper for chilly winter days watching Netflix. In bed. All alone. With my cat. Naturally, I got a size 16 so it's extra oversized and I can get away with wearing it as a dress - anyone else do this? Anyway, I thought I'd 'rock n roll' it up a tad with a pair of oversized fishnets (can someone please tell me why fishnets make an outfit so much more provocative than if I was just wearing bare legs aha!) and these chunky biker boots from Ego. I've been pretty much living in trainers for the past 6 months, so it's nice to switch it up a bit with a pair of boots!

Also, in case you hadn't already noticed, my hair got the chop! I didn't realize how long it had gotten, like she cut off a good 6 inches. It's funny, I wanted my hair long for suchhhhh a long time, like I went to so many lengths to get it into the perfect condition so it would grow. I did it, I succeeded, but I dunno man, I don't think long hair's for me. My hair is quite fine so it being long didn't do anything to help it look any thicker and it just kinda hung there. I much prefer it short. And the bright blue will be back soon, I promise!

Remember my 'granny-chic' outfit last Sunday? Well this week myself and Batsheva from Cynical Duchess have both styled an outfit around the idea of 'inner-child' (see Batsheva's look here). I've gone for dungarees because what's more reminiscent of childhood in the 90's than a pair of dungarees? 

I've layered them over the cosiest vintage roll neck to give a laid-back Autumn/Winter look. I like 'cool' casual outfits like this that look like you've made some sort of effort with what you're wearing, but really all you've done is chucked on like two things. Sneaky, so very sneaky. Tbf, I don't think just a jumper and dungarees is a sassy enough outfit for yours truly over here, so I've popped on the world's finest glittery flamingo earrings, and my pink Superstars to match. Love a good 'ol pop of colour. And the fishnets under the dungarees just add so much more interest and sass to the outfit. I did this in my last outfit post and feel like it's deffo going to be a bit of a recurring theme this season!

This is by far my fav outfit/photo location I've had up on my blog in a long while. Pastel houses and a matching pastel fur jacket, what more could I ask for? Honestly though, this is my dream jacket, I couldn't believe my luck when I saw it on the Iron Fist site. It's weird how much personal style can change over time, like three years ago I would've looked at that jacket in all it's pastel faux fur glory and just been like, 'what da fuck is that'. Don't get me wrong, it would've thought it was pretty damn cool, but you wouldn't have caught me oncering around in a jacket that has eyes... Now I can't get enough.

I've gone for fishnets under jeans, because face it, it looks bomb af. I actually completely forgot about the fishnets and jeans combo until I saw it on Instagram the other day, and my obsession has been once again, reignited. I feel like it adds a bit of edge to an outfit. Not that this outfit needs anymore edge, it's already got a mesh top and a fricking jacket that sees all, but you get the point.

Y'know what? I really hate taking outfit photos in the sun. I can't get along with it mate. It makes me look pale and washed out. I mean, it's probably my own fault for not putting my camera on the right settings but trussssssst me I've had a good play around and this is the best I got. Any tips are welcome.

This outfit is a collab with Batsheva from Cynical Dutchess, where we both came up with a theme and created an outfit around said theme. Today's is 'Granny-chic' (my theme is next Sunday!), and I've gone down the slouchy winter outfit route (see Batsheva's post here). Like, who doesn't want to be comfy in the colder months? The oversized jumper is a vintage piece that I picked up from a charity shop for under a fiver. Seriously, if your looking for cheap vintage pieces, raid your nearby charity shops - you may find some gems. Deffo a lot cheaper than most vintage shops. Tbf, with the jumper, this outfit is probably more Granddad-chic (lols) than Granny, but I still rock it.
