Monochrome grid check.

Coat & Scarf - Vila
Leather Trousers - River Island
Top - H&M
Boots - PLT

When it comes to winter, it's all about finding the perfect winter coat. I am a self-proclaimed coat and jacket obsessive and I find it hard to say no to a good coat (I mean, who doesn't?!) so I just couldn't resist this beautiful wool checked Vila number. I can't get enough of monochrome right now, or grid print checks for that matter, so this coat and scarf combo ticks all my boxes. I can't stop wearing it! It's perfect for wrapping up against the freezing weather that's started this week. After all, who cares what outfit you've got on underneath when your layers are this great?

Trees, leaves and fur.

Fur Gilet - Pretty Little Thing
Leather Pants - River Island
Jumper - Hush

I'm such a Summer girl at heart, but there's something you just can't beat about Autumn days - crisp sunshine, beautiful leaves all around and the faint scent of bonfire night in the air....I love them! They also make for some great blog posing amongst all the fallen leaves and I couldn't resist wearing this Autumnal fur outfit to match the backdrop! I am all about the fur when it comes to Autumn, and a fur gilet/jumper combo is perfect for the in-between days when it's not quite chilly enough to whack out your full-on fur coat. I love the 70s vibe of this multicoloured fur and the oversized shaggy fit makes it super cosy! Paired with my staples - leather trousers and a baggy knit, it makes for the perfect throw-on Autumn look!

Manchester camouflage.

Jacket - Lavenham 
T Shirt - Dead Legacy
Jeans - Topshop

Whenever I tell people I live in Manchester, one of the first things they always say to me is how cold and/or rainy it is. Well, that may be true (for example I went to London last week and realised how absolutely freezing it is here in comparison!) but it doesn't mean that Manchester isn't still an amazing place to live. I've been here for over 5 years now, and am currently moving into a new apartment on my own which will be the 6th different place I've lived in in Manchester and I'm still as excited to be here as I was the day my parents dropped me off in halls for my first year of Uni! This awesome T Shirt from Mancunian brand Dead Legacy sums it up for me - there's a lot of amazing cities out there (and so many I can't wait to try out) but right now, Manchester is the place for me!

And, as for the rain - I've got this awesome camo jacket from Lavenham to keep me dry in whatever weather this city wants to throw at me! And look pretty cool at the same time. Sorted!

Lovebox festival throwback.

Shorts - Desire Clothing (DIY)
Crochet bralet top - Vintage
Boots & Rucksack - boohoo
Sunglasses - eBay

It seems crazy looking at these sunny photos when I can't imagine the weather being warm enough to wear so little, but I couldn't resist sharing this outfit with you from way back when I went to Lovebox Festival in the Summer! These photos were actually taken for a street style feature on Elle Magazine by the lovely Victoria Adamson and I had to wait until they'd been used in the mag before I could get them to show you guys on the blog!

I love this outfit so much though that I just had to share it even though it reeeeally doesn't fit in with the season! This Summer was all about white and since seeing a shedload of celebs wearing white crocheted maxis, I couldn't wait to try out this PLT one. It made for the perfect festival vibe and (luckily) I even managed to not get it muddy, which if you know me you'd know was a bit of a miracle! Anyway, I hope looking at these sunny photos brings back your happy memories of the Summer just as much as it does for me - here's looking forward to next year!
