Top 5 Lipsticks

When it comes to makeup I am definitely a lipstick person. I'm too lazy to bother with eyeshadow on a regular basis, lipsticks are quick to apply and can instantly change your whole look. My favourite brands for lipsticks as you can see are definitely Maybelling, Nars and Charlotte Tilbury. When it comes to those brands these are my top 5 lipsticks that are in high rotation at the moment.

Work Outfit: Knits & Skirts

Coat: Topshop (last worn here, here & here), Knit: Sportsgirl, Skirt: Forever New (last worn here), Boots: Betts

A knit and a cord skirt. I'm pretty sure everyone around me is sick of this combination this winter, oh and my camel coat of course. I'm an extremely busy person, so having a uniform of sorts for different areas of my life is important so I can quickly get ready in the morning and still look put together. This is my work uniform. One of my cord skirts, a knit, tights, ankle boots and my camel coat, and I'm out the door.

Bedroom Inspiration

When I first moved into my bedroom in January of 2015 I had very little money to furnish my new room, so Ikea was my go to. While my Ikea furniture has definitely served me well I do want to update my bedroom over the next 6 months. The items above are all on my wishlist and if you can't tell I'm slightly in love with West Elm and Mid Century Modern styling. Below are two images that are definitely goals for me for my updated bedroom and are a huge source of inspiration. For more bedroom inspiration, head to my pinterest page.

Chambray Shirt & A Camel Coat

Shirt: Topshop, Coat: Topshop, Jeans: American Eagle, Boots: Betts

This chambray shirt is one of the most annoying items of clothing I own. Being 100% cotton it is impossible to wear it without getting wrinkled. Even if I iron it and bring it up to my bedroom, by the time I have walked to my bedroom it's wrinkled again. The upside is, it's a super versatile piece of clothing if you can get past the wrinkles or find one in a polyester blend.

Olive Knit & Camel Coat

Knit: Sportsgirl, Skirt: Forever New, Coat: Topshop (Last Worn Here), Bag: Forever New, Shoes: Betts

I hate wearing scarves! So wearing a turtle neck or roll neck knits are perfect for me over winter. I picked this one up from Sportsgirl and I love the colour. Olive has always been a good colour to go with my darker hair, it's also a nice colour to brighten up my dark winter wardrobe.

My Favourite Cord Skirt

winter outfit, fall outfit, work outfit, turtleneck knit, black cord skirt, ankle chelsea boots
I love fashion, don't get me wrong but I've also got some ideas about what I shouldn't wear on my body. We all have insecurities. I tried on this skirt without any hope that it would either look good or fit, and like most insecurities mine were found wrong. After figuring out that I could actually wear this skirt, I ended up buying it in both colours you can see the other one here.

Winter Camel Knit

This outfit has been a staple in my work wardrobe all of winter so far. My family must be sick of me wearing the same combination of outfits every weekend at work. Even now as I sit at work writing this (don't tell my boss =  parents), I am wearing a cord skirt with a cropped knit. It's full proof, especially when it's a Sunday morning and I have to head off to work.
