Time to cosy up

ASOS faux fur stole (here) and polka dot tights (here), TOPSHOP skirt (similar), COS turtleneck, ZARA bag (similar), TUFFA boots

 Yo! With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow I'm getting in a cosy festive mood- I'll be in the Caribbean this Christmas so I'm taking advantage of winter warmers while I'm still in this chilly weather. This faux fur stole is my current fave- it is possibly the softest thing ever and baby blue is one of the three colours I actually wear so that's handy too.
I'll keep this brief since I have an essay due soon and I'm so busy! Bring on holidayz.

That seventies boot

& OTHER STORIES boots (similar), ASOS velvet pinafore (similar) and tights (here), DKNY bag (similar), GAP turtleneck, DANIEL WELLINGTON watch (here)*, MONICA VINADER bracelet (here)*

I haven't felt as seventies as I did when I wore this since the actual seventies - these boots are possibly the best thing to happen to the world in a good long while and you know how I love a good polo neck. I wore this for a quick pit-stop in London on Thursday for some meetings and events- as much as I'm settling into Bristol life well, I do miss my home town a lot and being able to step out of my parka and trainer lifestyle induced by hills and semi-constant rain. I'm actually heading down again this coming weekend for some belated Thanksgiving/ National Pumpkin Pie Day celebrations with the whole family.
Nothing says festive like eating more Turkey and sweet potato then seems feasibly possible- It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

My Dorothy Moment

ASOS jumper (here) and socks, TOPSHOP kilt (similar), DOROTHY PERKINS shoes (here)*

Took these shots quickly in between some lectures earlier this week- Dorothy Perkins sent over these pretty darn fine boots and they're proving perfect for days in the library and heading straight to the pub with friends when lectures end at 6pm as they do sometimes. I like to add a little height to an otherwise fairly chilled outfit and since heels aren't a brilliant idea with all the hills, these suffice nicely as an inbetween. 
The best thing about these boots though? That they're part of a competition Dorothy Perkins is running- all you have to do is take an instagram/ twitter picture of you wearing your Dorothy Perkins shoes and hashtag #MyDorothyMoment letting them know what that moment is. A years supply of DP shoes is up for grabs, which would make 2015 a little bit sweeter than it's already going to be. What are you waiting for?

Cobalt blue and marl

ASOS coat (similar) and top (here), KURT GEIGER boots (similar), ZARA pants and GIVENCHY 'Antigona' bag (here)

So chilly weather has settled in and my love for polo necks has been reignited to epic levels- my collection is actually almost embarrassingly big but I'm pretty sure it's a common known thing that you can never have too many polo necks- sort of like chocolate and puppies. And shoes. And chocolate.
Slowly but surely I'm battling the urge to cuddle up in everything black I own and am trying to integrate at least one colour per outfit- since my main motto is go big or go home, ultramarine blue seemed a sensible place to start. Kind of like a sartorial dolphin...but also kinda not.
I have a bucket load of reading to do (as always) so I'm going to love you and leave you for now.
Have a good rest of week!
