I have always been totally obsessed with anything with a Boutique collection tag. Topshop’s Boutique and Boohoo Boutique always have such amazing pieces and amazing quality. I did a takeover talking about the Boohoo AW14 range back at the AW14 press day and fell in love with it all then so as soon as it dropped we couldn’t wait to blog about it! 

I absolutely LOVE the print on this maxi dress (I also got the wide leg trousers in the same print!) This maxi dress is so silky and has such a gorgeous shape when you walk - I know it’s going to be perfect for party season! I threw the little beaded cape in ivory over the dress with the burgundy faux fur cape jacket which is stunning. I love capes and love fur so this combination was perfect and doesn’t ruin your party outfit! Accessorised with a cut out clutch also from Boohoo which matched the pattern perfectly and a clashing boot with my leopard print Zara beauties! 

If your after something a bit different and want to stand out this AW14 check out the rest of the amazing Boutique collection and get ready for party season in style!

Having seen, and completely fallen for Boohoo's latest Boutique collection at their AW14 Press Day back in the summer, we have been impatiently waiting to get our hands on our favourite pieces and huzzah! the day is finally here! The collection itself is the perfect blend of boho and tailored and is the perfect way to go from Autumn into Christmas Party mode with sequins, silk and fur bombers a plenty.

I absolutely love all the paisley pieces in this collection and this tailored jumpsuit literally, jumped out at my straight away - the muted colours make this statement print so easy to wear and this would equally as good with an oversized grungy jumper and heeled boots for a more relaxed look. I decided to dress it up (or as dressed up as I go really!) by adding a simple blazer and sandal combo and finished off with a statement fur.

What do you think of the Boohoo Boutique collection?

I have got to admit I'm a Doc virgin! But when I came across these floral ones on Bank Fashion online I knew they were the ones for me! I love the cute but subtle ditsy floral print and think there going to be my absolute godsend for Glastonbury and festivals next year. 

I recently went to the Free People pop-up and got to pick an item, the lace dress in a gorgeous lilac colour was the perfect piece and knew it would look great teamed with my Docs and some big fur. I layered my black roll neck underneath it for a bit of hard edge against the pretty lace and belted my PLT long white fur gilet over the dress, which is the perfect layering piece for autumn. I just love the pretty lace against the tough but girly Docs for that girly/tough edge!
I was so pleased with the outfit and it shows just how versatile Dr. Martens are! What's your favourite style? They are fast becoming a wardrobe staple for me!

What's Up, Doc? - Amy

Topshop Tartan Check Coat (similar here and here), H&M Jumper, Primark Grey Roll Neck, Topshop Jamie Rip Knee Jeans, Cherry Red Dr. Marten Boots










It is only officially Autumn when the Docs come back out - good bye pool slides, so long peep toes and hellooo big chunky socks and weatherproof boots. Any shoe that is both fashionable and practical is a winner in our books but the DM is such a classic, it is definitely our most essential wardrobe staple.

My favourite pair are my cherry reds and this is fast becoming my lazy day, go to outfit this Autumn. I will happily wear my docs with just about anything but the layers and little added extras to this essentially 'jeans and t-shirt' look are what makes this simple and chic. The black and grey tones keep the outfit quite androgynous but the statement coat adds the perfect feminine touch and even better, colour matches so perfectly with my boots. 

Could you live without your Docs? If you can, tell me how!

If you caught up on Amy’s post last night you will know we were luckily asked to take a trip to McArthurGlen Swindon Outlet a few weekends ago, I have never been to Swindon before and it was in the middle of myself and Amy so thought it would be the perfect outlet to check out! My usual outlet shopping is Bicester Village which I always found great pieces at so I was really excited to check out Mcarthur Glen and all the exciting shops!

Our first stop was of course Starbucks as we are totally obsessed with PSL’s - who isn’t? After a quick caffeine fix we were ready to shop, we planned out a route over coffee which of course top of our list for denim was the ‘Levis’ store. I was lucky and found both my denim pieces straight away! I went for an amazing shearling Levis denim jacket and a denim shirt dress also from Levis! I hardly wear jeans so these were the perfect alternative for me and I knew I could get some amazing pieces to team with them!

We then headed to French Connection where I couldn’t resist this amazing boucle jacket with fur trim, which I have worn to death since! I thought it would look great with the shirt dress and yellow roll neck underneath for a 60s twist- which worked perfectly! Then headed to Hobbs where I walked past the window and saw the most incredible floral shirt dress which I just had to have! The Levis shearling denim jacket worked perfectly over this for a smart,casual look playing on my bohemian style. I mixed my leopard print boots with the look for a bit of clash!

I wanted to be really experimental with my looks and make them me, so don’t be scared to team your denim pieces with prints and pretty pieces! For my last double denim look I threw my blanket scarf over my shoulders for a bit of interest and my over the knee boots from Next with tan bag gave it a bit of colour and detail. 

Which of my 3 looks is your favourite? Have you been to a McArthurGlen outlet before? Check out their Denim - The New Icons campaign here to get a little more info and don't forget to show us your own Denim Diary using the hashtag #DenimTheIcons
