From Night To Day

 Outfit 1: Christmas Night Out

 Outfit 2: Boxing Day Shopping

Outfit 1: Box clutch bag, strappy sandals: NEW LOOK, *Rose gold bangle and *Necklace: c/o EMOZIONI 
Outfit 2: Leather jacket, tights: NEW LOOK, Lace up boots: TOPSHOP, Watch: MARC BY MARC JACOBS, Necklace: PRIMARK 

If there's anything you probably know about me by now it's that I am not one to waste a good piece of clothing by only wearing it once on a night out and then leaving it to collect dust in the back of my wardrobe. I always try to restyle party pieces so they can be worn in the day too so I thought I'd show you today just how I would do that with this beautiful playsuit from Glamorous

The dark pattern on the playsuit makes it perfect for the work Christmas party or a simple night out and I teamed it with barely there heels and a contrasting clutch to set the whole thing off. The dark lipstick gives a kind of vampy vibe which is perfect for this time of year and I also added the very glam jewellery from Emozioni to finish it off. 

For the day time look I added tights, a failsafe way to dress down any dress, playsuit or skirt, and the chunky boots. We all love a good black ankle boot but I thought this "rust" pair from Topshop complimented the colours in the playsuit fantasically! Such a happy moment when two random things from your wardrobe look perfect together! The messy ponytail and leather jacket are a great and easy way to make things a little more casual and with the more subtle lippy this for me is the perfect smart yet casual outfit for a day out sale shopping (the boots are super comfy too - always a plus!)

Do any of you restyle party pieces for a day time look?

 *Black Lacoste vauban trainers: c/o GET THE LABEL / Crepe trench coat: MISSGUIDED / Striped tee, ripped skinny jeans: TOPSHOP / Necklace: PRIMARK

I have never really been a trainers kind of girl, always gravitating towards a pair of black ankle boots but recently trainers have really been growing on me and my new love was confirmed with this pair of Lacoste beauties from Get The Label. They are so comfy but still manage to maintain a classic kind of chic look, especially when teamed with the Missguided trench and I love the smart casual vibe that it creates. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of these as they're just so easy to throw on with a pair of jeans and a tee; perfect for those lazy days at university or college or for a comfy alternative for a long day out shopping!

The Sunday Post: Some New Additions

Hey guys! Hope you've all had a lovely Christmassy week! It's a bit of a different Sunday Post from me today as I've been so ill all week with the flu. You know that awful kind where you can't breathe, your eyes ache and you have literally no motivation whatsoever? That has been me all week so I haven't really done anything interesting to share with you! So I just thought I'd give you a little glimpse into a few of my new additions from Get The Label. You'll have seen a couple of the pieces before but it's just a little round up of the bargains! The dress is a little Glamorous number and with it's deep red colour and gold detailing, it's the perfect dress for teaming with a leather jacket and boots during the day and a fur coat and killer heels for the night and can you believe it is just under ten pounds. Yes you read that right. Get The Label offers amazing discounts from so many brands, it's definitely worth looking on their site! 

Look out for these pieces in my future outfit posts!

Gift Ideas: The DW Watch

For me, a watch is one of the greatest gifts you can give to a special someone at Christmas. It's something that everyone can appreciate whether it's for a partner, a parent, a grandparent or a friend, a watch is a gift that is perfect for all kinds of people and is one that will be used year after year. Daniel Wellington is the perfect brand to turn to for watches; their watches are simple and classic and are a fool proof gift idea, especially as Christmas is just around the corner!

You can also get a massive 15% off your order when you enter the discount code holidaysaltandchic so if you're looking for a last minute gift for someone or even for yourself definitely check them out!

How is everyone doing with their Christmas shopping?

Dark Rose

*AX Paris rose printed trousers: c/o GET THE LABEL / High neck top: PRIMARK / Duster jacket: TOPSHOP / *Chelsea boots: c/o GLAMOROUS / *Crystal cut necklace: c/o LOLA AND GRACE

First of all let me apologise about these incredibly boring photos. The weather in the north east has been absolutely dreadful of late and if I had tried to get these photos outside I would have probably have been whisked away by the gale force winds so I had to take refuge! Anyway we all love a good statement trouser don't we? This AX Paris pair from are so Christmassy with the dark red colours yet they'll be fab all year round too. The grey makes a nice contrast with the boots and duster toughening the whole outfit up a little bit, something which I love doing!

Hope everyone else is having better luck with this awful spell of weather than I am! Bloody wind...

Christmas Gift Ideas For Him

With Christmas a mere two weeks away we're all starting to feel that panic starting to set in that everyone is familiar with. For me it's the men who are hardest to buy for; I always think females are so easy to get lovely presents for but men can be so much more difficult! That's where Mainline Menswear come in; looking through their website is like a dream when you're shopping for the men in your life whether it be a boyfriend, a father or a brother. They stock brands from Adidas to Converse to Superdry and with such a huge variety you are virtually certain to find something for anyone's taste. Because I'm such a nice girlfriend, I let Karl have this two pack of Armani t-shirts early (if you read my post on Monday you'll know I forced an early gift out of him!) and he was over the moon with it - the t-shirts are right up his street!

How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping?

Winter Navy

 Navy cropped sweat: BOOHOO / Boyfriend shirt: ASOS / Ripped skinny jeans: TOPSHOP / Tassel bag: H&M / *Chelsea boots: c/o GLAMOROUS / Amy Watch: MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Navy and black is one of my favourite combinations, especially when it includes super cosy sweaters and lots of layering. Layering has been my best friend recently and believe me it is hard to look anywhere close to stylish when you're walking around with three pairs of tights on and slightly resembling the michelin man... This outfit is a far cry from that look thankfully!! I love the contrasting lengths of the shirt and the sweater, with the white shirt breaking the outfit up nicely. My knees were a bit nippy but us girls have gotta make sacrifices!

p.s I'm sorry about the state of my hair in these photos! The weather is not my friend recently and the gale force winds are making it very difficult for me to get any kind of decent photos!
