I would say that I’m not really one to follow trends or have a specific style role model that I copy, I just tend to do my own thing. However there is one ‘trend’ that I have spotted constantly on Pinterest over the last while and I’m loving it!
If there is two pieces of clothing that I just love its a good coat and of course a beloved pair of trainers. Of course put them together: ultimate dream team! There is just something ever so cool about pairing a sophisticated long camel coat with a pair of sneakers. I have been loving this combo and my daily go-to is always my beloved New Look camel coat with my even more beloved maroon Adidas Gazelles.
However when you get caught up in this trend-loving it has only went and increased my wardrobe wishlist further. I now have my eye on a couple other pairs of trainers namely black and white Nike Roche Runs and a pair of black and white Adidas Gazelles (yes I do like my monochrome!). Its a weird smart-casual combo but I’m loving it and maybe the addition of a camel trench coat can take this look right into Spring!

What do you think? Are you a fan of the Coat and Sneakers look?
Its that time of the month again… Monthly favourites! Ever since I’ve started doing these monthly favourite posts I feel like time goes so much quicker as if I’m posting one of these every week … is it just me!? Anyway October is over, can you believe it! So its now time to round up some of my favourites from the month 🙂
First up is a product I just get so excited at by just looking at it, its the Nars Laguna bronzer. I did a review on this not too long ago which you can check out here. Its the perfect bronzer, it looks so natural and has such a lovely shimmer to it. If you haven’t tried it, you must!
Next is a lip product by Mac and its the lipstick in the shade Mac Twig. This is a great fall lipstick, its a browny-red shade or as they say “your lips but better shade”. If you are a fan of the Kylie Jenner 90s esque lip then this shade is perfect to try and also if you aren’t a fan of berry lips then this is a great fall go-to colour.
Another one of my favourites is an OPI polish in the shade Guy Meets Gal-Veston. I actually have this on my nails just now and its a lovely bright red shade. When I first applied this I was a bit weary about it as the formula was a tad watery however I am so impressed with it, while it is a bit chipped now the lasting quality of this polish is amazing it lasted me over a week with no chipped nails or cracks. Amazing
And last but not least my Topshop black slip-ons. Now if you seen my October Pick of the Month I had a pair of River Island tartan plimsolls and I discussed the fact that I was lusting over a pair of plain black ones .. well you can see what happened. These shoes are well on trend this season and I totally get why, they are so comfortable but also look amazing with anything. I just love my plimsolls!
This months Pick of the month is Raised Shoulder Belted Trench Coat from Littlewoods. As Autumn has just came in one piece we all invest in is a brand new coat for the winter and the trench coat is a very popular example.
It is £59.00 and is available in 2 colours of black and beige colour. Its a fantastic buy but if its not what your looking for there is so many more great pieces at littlewoods.
