Life in monochrome.

Dress - Coast
Jacket & Necklace - H&M

Now that it's not quite so sunny, my work wardrobe has quickly slipped back into monochrome. Some might call it boring, but there's something so great about black and white that just makes it easy to throw on. The newest addition to my mono-wardrobe is this beautiful dress from Coast, which is just perfect for a day in the office. It's from their new Autumn/Winter collection but it's actually really good to wear for this in-between season with bare legs and little boots.I love the slouchy style of it and the monochrome grid print is just awesome! I wore this to work last week and so many people commented on it - a sure sign of a good dress choice, I always think!

What do you think of today's look?

The Watch Gallery

- All available at The Watch Gallery.

If there's one thing every fashionista needs/wants/has/lusts over (delete as appropriate), it's a statement watch. I'm not generally one for expensive designer pieces - although I dream of owning the perfect designer handbag collection one day, I don't think I'll ever find it reasonable to spend hundreds of pounds on a designer tshirt - but when it comes to watches it's a different story. A watch is such an investment piece, something that will last forever if you buy it for the quality, and there a so many beautiful designer watches that can ensure your arm candy will never go out of style! With all this said, I obviously couldn't resist when the Watch Gallery asked me to share my dream watch wishlist with you! I picked my top pieces from their site, from the must-have blogger styles, to classic designs that you'll want on your arm forever. Me, I'm dreaming of that silver chanel beauty lasting me forever, no matter what my age or outfit! One day eh?A girl can dream!

Off the grid.

 Playsuit - In the Style
Jacket - H&M
Necklace - H&M
Boots - boohoo

Sometimes taking photos of an outfit really makes me realise how much I love it, and this playsuit was one of those! Sometimes it can feel awkward taking blog photos (especially when you take them outside your massive block of flats with lots of overlooking balconies like I do) but when I hit on an outfit that I really love, I just feel comfortable and don't care that there's probably a few people peering out their windows wondering what that crazy blonde girl is doing posing in the car park again!

I wear this playsuit a lot, especially to work. The monochrome print is perfect for office chic and it looks great with or without tights. I styled it up herewith a retro vibe and a rock and roll jacket to match my new haircut! I was scared of taking the plunge and getting a fringe even though I'd been thinking about for ages,but I absolutely love the result! What do you think?

Coral dress & statement necklace

 Dress - Ad Lib Girl
Shoes - Dolcis
Necklace - Rosa Red Jewellery

If there's one bad thing about the sunshine at the moment (I can't even believe I'm going to say there's anything bad about the sunshine...) it's that it makes it so damn hard to take good blog photos! Honestly, I spend half of my time moaning about how it's too rainy to take photos in Manchester, and then when it is sunny it's just as difficult!

I've been wearing this dress loads lately - it's perfect for work when the sun's out and I've been wanting to blog about it for ages. I was surprised how much I loved the colour too! It's perfect with some statement jewellery and a pair of heels to dress it up for more of an occasion too (I didn't wear these rose-gold shoes when I wore it to work, obvs!) I'm loving this statement bling from Rosa Red Jewellery - it's my new stop for bejewelled necklaces, you have to check it out! These are my last blog pics with my old hair, this weekend I braved the hairdressers and got a fringe - I'll  be taking some outfit snaps this week to show you all, or check out my instagram for a sneak preview! What do you think of today's outfit?
