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?
I’m still finding it quite hard to believe that we are nearing the last few months of 2014 and I’m now looking at coats *gasp*. Anyway my excitement over coats has made this beauty the Pick of the month for September. This Pale Pink Boyfriend Coat is from New Look and priced at a okay price of £54.99 (don’t forget student discount!). Pastels are here to stay for Fall *applause* particularly pale pinks and blues which are everywhere and I
want need a pastel cosy coat for the cold weather ahead and this coat is perfect for me 🙂 The coat has a boyfriend fit so it is oversized which is a bonus for being all cosy and its also available in pastel blue as well. Please note that this coat is only in the Petite section, sorry to all the lanky tall people out there but there is many other alternatives from New Look and other places such as ASOS.

As Glastonbury is already under way millions of people are hitting the shops for the finest looks to wear to all the great music festivals over the world. I have a teamed a cute outfit perfect for dancing in the mud and rain. Playsuits are huge this summer and are always a hit at festivals so nothing can go wrong with this cutie beauty from Matalan for a stealer at £18 ! And you can team it with this amazing plastic raincoat from ASOS which comes in 3 colours Yellow, Blue and Red at £50.00 – it may seem expensive but it’s perfect not just for festivals but for everyday wear and it has a very stylish look. And of course to complete the outfit you just can’t go to a festival without some awesome wellies. This outfit has some Hunter Gloss Red Wellington Boots from John Lewis at £37 to give it that festival feel. Hover over pictures for prices and shops.

Yip i believe this is the exact dress here from Zara for an amazing £49.99 or $89.90 and now that Kate Middleton has wore it i am sure this dress will be worth more so snap your up fast from Zara and team with black wedges and a black jacket to get the Kate look.

A popular trend that occurs mostly every year is Monochrome. Monochrome is very simple to wear but is also very fashionable. Below is a few pieces from ASOS which follow the Monochrome look. P.S If you hover over the pictures you can find out how much it will cost in dollars and in pounds.
