ANTIGUA

If (like me) you spend a lot of time on Instagram, you may have see the "Antigua Dress" by For Love and Lemons on various celebs and bloggers. And if (like me) you are working on a student budget and have lusted over one for ages but can't bear to part with your food money for one of these lacey numbers, then I have found a solution for you!

Choies.com has a huge selection of pretty dresses, but more importantly- perfect imitations of some of your favourite designs. So instead of paying over £100 for this dress, I got it for around 20 quid!


I love the lacey design of these dresses and the mix of sheer and nude fabrics which give it a unique look. They come either as a maxi or a mini dress and in black, white and green so you can find one that best suits your tone. 


I can't wait until the summer to wear this with some strappy sandals and pretty bangles!

LAYERS



As much as I love dressing up, even I can't deny the fact that it's pretty chilly at the moment! That can only mean one thing- dressing for comfort. I would usually gasp at the thought alone, but there are ways to be comfy and still looking stylish. 

Here I'm wearing a thick scarf from Zara, which not only keeps me super warm but also adds a bit of colour to any outfit I combine it with. A beige coat is also another way of making your winter outfit look chic, and they'll never go out of style so you're set for a good few years! If you want to wear a chunky knit jumper like the one hidden under my layers here, then pair it with either some leather leggings or a leather skirt to give it some edge.

Turns out you can dress functional and be still be fashionable- who knew!

SUPERLATIVE


Top: nANA jUDY | Skirt: Missguided

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! I had such a wonderful day with my family, there's nothing better than the festive season to bring everyone together.

Here I've combined a little white crop top by nANA jUDY with my white bodycon skirt. If you're wearing all one colour, the best way to break it up is with some print. The printed rose detail on this crop top creates an eye-catching feature in the outfit. On a colder day I'd also wear this crop top with either some leather shorts or some leather leggings.

Lots more outfit posts to come- I love being home!
