A chill in the air

7 Nov

November and December are perhaps my favourite months of the year. Ignoring the horrible cold I have, the icy conditions and the sleet that soaks right through you, it is the most wonderful time of the year. The shops are filled with Christmas goodies, it’s acceptable to have a mince pie and Starbucks is the only place for a toffee nut latte. Fresh Christmas trees line the streets of my market town ready to be purchased and planted and the first blanket of snow can be seen.

November means it’s certainly too cold just for a thin jacket and my beloved snakeskin flats are replaced by riding boots, Wellingtons and every outfit comes with a pair of earmuffs or a bobble hat. Fashion at this time of year is so cosy and warm. Everyone is bundled up, stylish leather gloves and all.

There are so many beautiful items of clothing and darling accessories out at the moment that just make me excited to walk through the snowy lanes of Nottingham. Here are my 7 favourite pieces at the moment- one treat for every day of the week!

Christmas Gift Ideas #1

26 Nov

With Christmas fast approaching, the inevitable Christmas shopping panic appears to get stronger by the day. I’m compiling a whole host of Christmas gift ideas (with a few sneaky treats in there for yourself too!). Whether it’s the boyfriend who has everything, the bratty brother or the picky mother-in-law, I’ll be helping solve all your Christmas gift woes with some inspiration from some brilliant brands.

First up, I’ve selected an item so universal that you simple cannot go wrong. This classic bead necklace with satin ribbon tie is the perfect for any female in your life. Mums, grandmothers, stylish sisters and even the boss will fall in love with this statement necklace from Hobbs. And, even better, Hobbs are offering 25% discount this weekend so this cream bead necklace can be yours for £41.25 if you snap it up before Monday.

Statement Belle Necklace by Hobbs is available in store and from the Hobbs website.

The sweetest belt of all time?

12 May

The words “sweet” and “belt” are not two words I’d normally put together but, upon spying this stunning creation, I think I’ll make an exception. This dove motif belt comes from the NW3 range by Hobbs and would look stunning paired with light coloured chinos and some tan brogues. It’s currently sold out but I’ll be keeping an eye out for it coming back in store.

It comes in at £39 and can be purchased in sizes S-XL.
