New Additions | Topshop Magnificent

Saw these a few months ago, fell in love, bought them, the end.

Its pretty much that simple! I tried these on first time just before my birthday which was in mid November. Thats how long it took me to decide to take the plunge.

It is ridiculous really, because I wouldn't normally think twice about making two smaller purchases separately which would add up to this amount, but for some reason when its a slightly higher price on just one item I get very reluctant to part with my money. And we are only talking about £80, I have no idea how people decide on designer brand purchases that cost hundreds, I bet I'd be agonising over my choice for years!

But back to the boots, the description calls them 'sock boots', they are meant to be very slim on the ankle, unsurprisingly they aren't as slim as that on me. I purchased these in a size 8, I always have to size up from my usually 7 in pointed boots, and on my thin (some have said chicken legs!) there is a little more space around my ankle but I don't really mind. It tends to be what happens for me.
I love the style, the heel height won't be one that I can wear everyday or all day but more and more I prefer to dress up that little bit more when I'm not at work. 
I live in trainers as I am on my feet all day so given when I don't have to I want to be wearing items that I love and that give me a bit of separation from what I wear when I'm working.

Thats how I justify it anyway, sometimes you just have to buy the shoes!

Wishlist | Missguided

I've alway been a bit hesitant of Missguided. I like the styles but having never ordered from them as I wasn't sure of the quality of the clothing. Or how the sizing is for that matter. I can fit into a size 8 in most shops but being tall (5'9) I tend to go up to a 10 to make things a little more comfortable.

I still haven't placed an order (hello being broke in January) but am looking to get a few bits. I have been reassured by the lovely Leanne of the quality and to keep en eye on the suede section as its especially good. Thanks Leanne!
This combined with the fact I see other bloggers with their stuff all the time (the advertising is obviously working on me!) I want to try it out.
The price points are really good and to be completely honest I am pretty easily tempted.

These are just a few of the items I've got my eye on. The list will probably have grown by the time I am able to place the order. 
The end of January pay day seems a looong way off at the moment, but I am well aware there is nothing I actually NEED just things that I WANT so waiting is of course what I will be doing!

If you have had an experience with Missguided, be that good or bad, Id love to hear about it.

Outfit | Stay Calvin

T-shirt, Calvin Klein 
Coat, Cos
Boots, Topshop
Watch, Calvin Klein
Glasses, Ray-Ban
Necklace, Argos, Similar here

I can't even remember the last time I took outfit pictures, let alone wrote a blog post on it. I feel so incredibly rusty with everything! From using my camera and tripod to editing and forming basic sentences! Ha!

I blame working in retail over the christmas period for my brain temporarily having a melt down, Its been a hectic couple of months to say the least. Hopefully I will return to being at least semi coherent soon.

I got this t-shirt a few months ago and have been wearing it non stop, Calvin Klein is definitely having a moment and I am a complete sucker for it. I even have the matching jumper, which is completely unnecessary.

The skirt was a bargain find in the sale at work and the coat is now also a bargain. Unfortunately I paid the full price for it, but I would again. 
I love the coat, its beautiful and amazing quality, If you are looking for an good winter coat thats more of a classic style I cant recommend this one enough.
I'm clearly in love it with and reduced to half price I think its a steal.

I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things, and I want to wish everyone a happy 2016 and say a big thank you for sticking with me for all this time!
It really does mean so much.
