"Cum on, feel the noize.."

The first words uttered from my dad when he saw me waltzing round the house in my new vintage trousers..."You look like Noddy Holder! If your DM's were the boots you'd be spot on..."

Not exactly the look I was going for, gotta be honest, but I love it all the same! I was rooting through my favourite shop, Cow, on my last weekend in Brum when I stumbled across these beauties! They're so so high waisted, which creates such a flattering shape. 

The pale checks definitely do give a '70s vibe though, which of course is all the rage at the moment! Teamed with a moss green roll neck and vintage train case to really max out that throwback look. I'm also wearing my new pale tortoiseshell glasses, and I'm loving how they look with a nude lip. 

I threw on my oversized wool boyfriend coat to change up the silhouette and keep those dastardly chills away. Once again, roll on Spring! (Although I will miss my coat collection). Next time I blog I will be living in the big smoke, the one & only London Town. 

Keep cool, guys.

Autumn Vibes in Midwinter.


So never one to stick to the rules, I found this beautiful Fedora in Peacocks over the weekend & couldn't resist styling it into a gorgeous autumnal outfit. Especially as there's still some leaves knockin' about on my driveway! All pieces are current, so I guess it's allowed! ;) 

Burgundy is my favourite colour so I'll be rinsing everything I own before Spring comes around. I actually cannot wait for some warmer weather...a London summer is calling me! But for now, I'm still loving anything cosy, like the Shearling detailing on this textured coat, and of course a hat to keep your noggin' (Brum slang for a head, of course!) warm, and finish off any look perfectly!
