Festive Feet

I’ve fallen in love with a pair of shoes.

Christmas heels

As soon as I saw them I thought they are the most perfect pair of heels for Christmas, with that festive red colour and the gold shiny heel! The satin also gives them a luxurious feeling – well if you can’t treat yourself at Christmas, when can you? The snakeskin detail on the back of the shoe and the platform makes them slightly less formal and will help to protect the satin from the elements in the wintery weather. I just want to dance round the Christmas tree with a glass of mulled wine in these shoes! (Another reason I like them is that they just happen to match perfectly with my nail colour today!)

Hot Pink ‘Twiggy’ Jeans

I don’t know about you, but I always find that skinny jeans/jeggings have a habit of being very restrictive and limiting your movement, which, let’s face it, is not a good look! Because of this, it is very precious when you find that perfect pair of skinnies that stretch enough to allow you to have your full range of movement!

I had been looking for some hot pink skinnies for ages but could never find the perfect pair. If you are following me on Twitter then you will know that I recently ordered these beauties…

Hot Pink Jeggings (Twiggy @ M&S, £25)

These are by Twiggy for Marks and Spencer and they are nice and stretchy but good quality and keep their shape well – perfect! The colour of these is described as ‘lipstick’ which is accurate as they are a true strong pink.

As I haven’t owned jeans of this colour before, I tried styling them in a few different ways…

I have used clashing prints with the tops I have chosen in the photo above. The top is by Miss Selfridge as was featured in this post. The jacket is from River Island and is a perfect summer cover up which really dresses up an outfit. I have chosen a River Island clutch bag in a clashing pink to tie together the pink in the jacket and the pink of the jeans. I finished off with a pair of black wedge ankle boots from ASOS.

 My second look is more casual and is suitable for a chilly Spring day. I styled the jeans with a purple top and matching purple flats by Guess. I added my gorgeous soft faux-fur gillet from Zara. I like this look as it is cosy and cute! Here is a close up of the shoes:

Adorable!

My final look is more of an evening look. I have paired my jeans with a pair of snakeskin heels which I picked up in TK Maxx. I added a black vest top from Karen Millen and lots of gold and silver chunky jewellery.

Which look is your favorite? How would you style lipstick-coloured skinny jeans? I would love to hear your ideas!

Florals and Prints

I was browsing on ASOS.com earlier and noticed how many cute items they have with pretty prints and unique details. Here is a round-up of my favourites!

Floral Peplum Dress (£35), Flower Print TOMS (£40), Pink Jacket (£60), Blue Floral Midi Skirt (£40), Strawberry Print Sleeveless Blouse (£29), Gold Toe Cap Blue Floral Heels (£45) and Heart Knee Skinny Jeans (£35) all ASOS.

I love all of the floral prints, they are so fresh and feminine! The gold toe-capped heels are so sexy and made me think of a pin-up girl. The little pink jacket is so versatile and could be worn with dresses or jeans. I just can’t resist those little hearts on the knees of the jeans – how adorable! I love a kookie print, and the strawberry print shirt does this beautifully without being too over the top. For fashionistas who also require comfort,  my beloved TOMS are available in this beautiful multi-coloured flower print! I want them all!

Dancing The Night Away!

This weekend I was out at a gig and club night. I wore a coral dress by Fever Fish at Dorothy Perkins which I have been dying to wear – I was just waiting for the weather to get warmer!

I love the colour and the 50s style of this dress. I added a skinny tan belt and tan wedges to give the look a more Springtime feel. I finished off with a splash of mint green nail polish and glittery gold eye make-up:

Anything sparkly or covered in diamontes is known to get me excited so you can imagine how I feel about these beauties! I love hot pink so normally the second pair would be my favourite, but in this case I think the champagne colour just wins out as there is something really unique about them. Which are your favourites?

Warehouse Neon Bird Print Top

As you will know from my previous post, I recently bought this top as part of my Spring wardrobe:
