Neutral







 *COAT: C/O LALALILO / PLAIN TOP: MISSGUIDED / RIPPED SKINNY JEANS: TOPSHOP / *SUEDE TASSEL BAG: C/O ASOS / *CHAIN ANKLE BOOTS: C/O SOLE AFFAIR 

Sometimes you just gotta have one of those days where you simply haven't got the motivation to put on a big fancy outfit with lots of colour or layers and a really simple and plain outfit is just the one. This was one of those days. It was bleak and cold so a minimal effort yet still stylish outfit fit the bill perfectly. This coat is one of those really comfortable oversized pieces that you can just throw on and still feel like you made an effort and who doesn't love those pieces?!

The Sunday Post: #intuColours Event at The Metro Centre






On Wednesday night I was kindly invited to the Fashion Live '15 Blogger Preview Event at the Metro Centre for an evening of goodies, mini cupcakes and a little sneaky preview of the Fashion Live shows that have been going on this week! As you can see by the photos above we were well and truly spoiled on arrival with little shots of cocktails, glasses of wine, macarons, mini cupcakes (the temptation to eat the whole tray was strong). Also how cute is the little V.I.B sign?! Anyway after we'd eaten our fill of nibbles we got a little peak of the shows to come in Fashion Live. The theme was colour so everything was wonderfully bright and perfect for SS15. We can all get a little too comfortable with monochrome outfits at times so it was really refreshing for literally everything to be bright bright bright!






The collections featured brights from brands including Topshop, House of Fraser, Warehouse, River Island and Superdry and boy were they good! How frickin' beautiful is that River Island stripey two piece in the photo above?! I'm going to need to do some talking to my bank balance....






This is the first event I've been to in the North East so I was thrilled to be able to meet some other wonderful North East bloggers including the two gorgeous girls Laura from Girl Talk With Laura and Lucy from Dinosaur Dances whose blogs you should definitely be following! It's always nice to meet other bloggers especially when they're from your own neck of the woods! We were also spoilt rotten with the uh-mazing goodie bags which included an absolute stack of samples and freebies from Origins, Pantene, Krispy Kreme and so many more plus this adorable "Eat. Shop. Blog" notebook - so appropriate right?!

Anyway I'd like to say a huge thank you to intu Metro Centre and to Amy from The Girl in The Bowler Hat who did an amazing job organising the event!

Rome: Outfit #3


















 STRIPED TEE: ZARA / SUEDE BUTTON DOWN SKIRT: TOPSHOP / SANDALS: PRIMARK / *PINEAPPLE NECKLACE: C/O TALLULAH'S THREADS / *WATCH: C/O DANIEL WELLINGTON / *TASSEL SUEDE BAG: C/O ASOS / *RAY BAN ERIKA SUNGLASSES: C/O SUNGLASSES SHOP

So we've come to the end of my little mini Rome series on the blog which, I'm not gunna lie, does make me a little sad! Definitely getting a case of the holiday blues.... Anyway I picked up this little beauty of a skirt in Topshop a couple of days before I left for Rome and had to take it with me. There is nothing I don't love about it, especially when teamed with the double set of stripes with the top and the socks. Socks and sandals are okay in book! Speaking of the sandals, can you believe they were a mere £14 from Primark?! Yes you read that right. £14. They are definitely my best bargain in a while so get down to your local Primark now to snap them up in time for Spring! The little pineapple necklace from Tallulah's Threads just adds a little bit of fun to the outfit; I mean how cute is it?!

Rome: Outfit #2












 FLARED JEANS: WAREHOUSE / T-SHIRT: TOPSHOP / *TASSEL SUEDE BAG: C/O ASOS / *WATCH: C/O DANIEL WELLINGTON / RINGS: PANDORA, LOLA AND GRACE

I'll firstly apologise about my terrible frizzy hair in these photos; the weather on our second day in Rome was warm-ish but there was that drizzly, hazy rain we're all too familiar with here in England and I'm sure you know how it can cause havock with your hair! Anyway my outfit for the second day of my trip to Rome was 70s galore with the gorgeous flared jeans from Warehouse, the tasseled bag and the 70s-esque pattern on my tee. 70s really is something I can't get enough of so I couldn't reisst taking it over to Rome with me! Plus, like I said yesterday, jeans are always a winner for city breaks and that is a fact.

Rome: Outfit #1
















 *WAREHOUSE GIRLFRIEND JEANS: C/O DEBENHAMS / ROLL NECK JUMPER: NEW LOOK / CREPE TRENCH COAT: MISSGUIDED / *TASSEL SUEDE BAG AND *TORTOISE HEELS: C/O ASOS / *WATCH: C/O DANIEL WELLINGTON / *RAY BAN ERIKA SUNGLASSES: C/O SUNGLASSES SHOP

City breaks at this time of year can be hard to plan outfits for. Is it going to be hot, cold, rainy, sunny, windy? It's the luck of the draw no matter where you go and last week Rome was no different. So I planned this outfit with all weather possibilities in mind and it turned out to be the perfect balance. The Warehouse jeans from Debenhams were obviously an essential; you can't go wrong with such a stylish pair of jeans, especially when teamed with the light knit jumper and classic trench. These jeans are so versatile and are perfect for a weekend away, especially if you need a changeable piece to keep the luggage weight down (oh those pesky 10kg hang luggage limits...). For me this is the perfect transitional outfit when we're in this inbetween stage from winter to spring, no matter which country you're visiting. Casual, comfy, chic but warm enough to protect you from the chill.
