Finally a blog post!! It's February already and I've missed out on so much. So- I'm going to start by wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! Today I am sporting a double denim look grounded by camel and a splash of leopard. There are various ways you can wear your double denim and it's always fun to mix and match different washes. Today I decided to experiment by just staying to one tone.
4 weeks till Christmas and temperatures are finally dropping in London! It's time to get out your chunky knits and have fun with layering. It's ridiculous how much I get excited to pile on the winter apparel when everyone is yearning for summer. I have the most fun when it comes to putting outfits together in the colder seasons because you can play around with so many different elements.
When it comes to layering I love experimenting with different textures, pattern and colour. I styled my Bohemian Print Dress from Zara with my go- to Camel Coat from Mango (also love this one here ) and my Mum's Black Frilled Wrap. Lastly, a winter outfit isn't complete without a hat.
I've been keeping an eye out for over the knee suede black boots for quite some time and I have found the perfect pair in NEXT. I haven't been able to stop wearing them since.

So I originally bought this crochet sheer dress to wear on the beach. I was making the illogical decision of buying it in September knowing full well I would not be seeing the sun, sea and sand any time soon... and I was definitely not waiting around until next summer.
Therefore, I decided to use my dress as top. You should never be too restricted when it comes to how you can wear your clothes. Especially with dresses! A dress is all in one, easy and effortless, but it can be so much more. I used to always wear my dresses, well, exactly how you see them, as a dress. But its fun to experiment and turn your dress into a skirt just by simply belting in a top over the top, Or, if you love the top of a dress, add a skirt and you can achieve a completely different look.
I love the juxtaposition in today's look, the cream sheer dress offers a feminine contrast to the hard leather skirt.
