November Wishlist

November Wishlist

There has been a few things that have caught my eye recently so I thought I would share them with you all! 

1. Ana Faux Fur Jacket - I have wanted a black faux fur jacket for what has seemed like forever, I already own a leopard print one, but you know, black is my thang! I spotted this beaut from +Missguided on Charlotte's blog and fell in love!

2. Lurex Crop Top - I have been trying to avoid Topshop all together, mainly because my addiction to it was getting way expensive. Despite this I still have the odd nosy at the "New In" section. I luuuurve this top, it would look perfect with some high waisted mom jeans and a sock and sandal combo!

3. Hearts and Bows Morta Velvet Kimono - This kimono is gorgeous, it has a real Fleetwood Mac Stevie Nicks vibe about it. The metallic detailing on the hem is beautiful; not to mention its made of velvet - what's not to love?!

4. Sun Moon and Stars Babydoll Dress - You know when you see a piece of clothing and your like that's a 'me' dress, well that's what this is. I have no idea why I haven't bought it yet as I love all things celestial, it has been sitting in my +Motel Rocks wishlist forever so I think it's time it was officially mine. 

5. ASOS 90's silver rings - These rings are so awesome, I love wearing rings but unfortunately have fat knuckle syndrome (makes ring purchasing dead awkward), luckily these are adjustable! 

6. Lucifer Platform Sandals - Oh my gawd these shoes are perfect. To be honest I wish I had never laid eyes on them, as they're pretty steep at £72. *Cry*  Please can somebody let me know if you find any cheaper alternatives! I need them in my life.

7, Metallic Satchel Handbag - I have featured the silver version of this satchel on here before in a previous wishlist but have suddenly become a fan of gold; maybe its the (premature) Christmas spirit coming out of me - I dunno!

7. Black Patent Block Heel Boots - These boots from +Public Desire are a dead ringer for the Topshop absolutely chelsea boots, I'm definitely going to be purchasing them very soon, they will look great styled with skater dresses, skinnies or mom jeans!

So that's my wishlist for this month, what do you guys think? What's your favourite piece?

Outfit Of The Day | Enter Sandman

Coat - Primark
Cardigan -  Primark
T-shirt - Topshop
DIY Ripped Jeans - H&M 
Duffle Bag - Primark

 My lovely boyfriend whisked me away to Bournemouth recently, for a weekend in a fancy hotel to celebrate our year anniversary. I'm not used to fancy so it was a real treat, made even more so by the fact that we had a Jacuzzi bath and champers! It was a well needed break for us both, as we have had such a busy summer working and not much time for each other. We mostly spent our time relaxing, swimming, and using the saunas at the hotel. I didn't want to come home to be honest!
These pictures were taken on Bournemouth beach. It was such a beautiful day and, as you can see from my squinty face, the sun was in its full glory. I couldn't resist taking some pictures in front of one of the pastel beach huts; I chose the mint green one, naturally. 

Now onto the outfit! You know when you buy something new and you just wear it to death? That's what has happened with this Primark coat. I bought it on a recent shopping trip and have not stopped wearing it, no matter how hard I've tried. It just gives every outfit that extra something, you know, even my standard waitress uniform now looks fashionable! The cardigan I have had for a while, it's the perfect slouchy ensemble and is baggy enough for over-sized t-shirts to be worn underneath (I really hate those cardigans that can only fit thin tops underneath - pointless!). I wore my Metallica tee from Topshop underneath; I love band t-shirts, especially old-school metal ones.
 On another note, my favourite jeans ever decided that after 3 years of pretty much wearing them constantly, they were going to give up the ghost and fail on me with the zip breaking. Bollocks. Still they had a good run. RIP jeans.

Outfit Of The Day | Wednesday Addams

Shirt - Boyfriends
Jumper - H&M (old)
Dress - ASOS
Necklace - DIY
Pumpkin - DIY
Knife - Kitchen

Bit of a spooky-esque outfit post today - Wednesday Addams style! If you follow me on Instagram, you will have already seen my Halloween outfit but here it is in a little more detail. 
This was what I wore to work, I was so excited when I found out we were allowed to dress up. It was a pretty last minute costume idea, as I only found out the day before Halloween, but I think it turned out really well, and I received a lot of compliments on it - which was nice! The dress I have had for ages, it was perfect for this outfit as it is slightly baggy so it meant the shirt underneath wasn't too bulky. Originally I was going to wear just the shirt and dress but it wasn't quite Wednesday Addams enough and remembered this H&M jumper. I'm not going to lie I was absolutely boiling, I work as a waitress so you can imagine how hot I was, rushing about! The shoes are my fave recent purchase, you can't really see them in these photos but they are the chunky patent brogues from Primark. I bloody love them! I had seen them on people's blogs and Instagram and knew I had to have them. They were the last pair of Size 7's so obviously they were destined to be mine. The best part? When I got to the till I mentioned that they had a few defects so the cashier said she could knock off 10%, and when she scanned them she said they were coming up as £6! (originally £14) So I got them for £5.40, deffo my bargain purchase as of late. I think they worked really well for this outfit as they're a bit school-like (they did hurt my feet after a while though so I had to change into my work pumps - fashion is so painful sometimes!). I finished the outfit with the pumpkin I carved for work and a kitchen knife - obviously. Please note the knife was just for photo purposes, I didn't serve people with a knife hanging out of my hand, that would be too much! Haha. 
So that's it guys, what do you think? Did any of you guys get to dress up for work?
