Fifty Shades Of Grey - Amy

Zara Coat, Zara Check Scarf, Zara Grey Military Shirt Dress, Topshop Jamie Rip Knee Jeans, Fritha Boots c/o Public Desire












As they days are getting greyer, it seems my everyday wardrobe picks are too and although I am a huge fan of colour injections within 99.9% of outfits, I am oddly loving the monochromatic looks I've been falling into each morning.

This may be because there hasn't been a day gone by since buying this Zara coat where I haven't worn it. It is just the perfect size and shape and the exact weight needed for this time of year. It's not just coats Zara are getting right, it's dresses too (and the rest) and I couldn't resist this thick material-ed military style shirt dress - I love it layered over jeans here for a relaxed boyfriend look but swap for a biker and opaque tights in the evening and this is my ultimate drinks outfit

The boots may not be grey but they are definitely contending for favourites in my wardrobe (next to these and these) Pointed boots are all the rage at the moment and with their slick appearance I can see why! These beauts are only £24.99 and they haven't rubbed yet either.

Do you find yourself edging towards subtler colour palettes during the winter? Let us see how you're dressing the greyscale.

Monthly Must Haves (Christmas Gift Guide) - Naomi


With Christmas just over 4 weeks away we thought this months 'Monthly Must Have' post just has to be a Gift Guide special! With so much to choose from on the high street and online It was so hard to choose my favourite bits but these are the things that are definitely on my list to santa and I hope they will be on yours too! Good luck with your Christmas shopping everyone!

If this isn't the perfect Christmas Day dress then I don't know what isn't! It's gold and it's sparkly plus I love the cute shape, it would look perfect with black boots and faux fur!

Amy and myself are totally obsessed with fur stoles and probably have well into double figures between us! This one is absolutely divine and is totally giving off the snow queen vibes!

I always find jumpers are such perfect gifts. There easy with size as you know they will fit and living in England they are most definitely always needed! This one is perfect for the season and would look great dressed up with sequins. 

I have always wanted one of these snazzy cameras from UO and with a added flash it's the perfect camera for on the go and also looks super slick with the honeycomb white and gold pattern.

I am so in love with these boots and would love to get them under my tree this Christmas! I love animal print and since purchasing my leopard print ones from Zara earlier in the season, I can definitely make a loving home for these too!

Oh Free People, you get me everytime! The detail on this sheer maxi is so beautiful I was totally won over, I think it's great for layering and a good piece for all year wear..

As you know from our blog sunnies aren't just for summer! We love them all year and why not give them as a gift for Christmas! I have been after these Miu Miu ones for a while and love the shape and print. 

I got the Moxham Anubis necklace for my birthday last year and absolutely love it. The new collection is fab and if you are looking for something a little bit different then a Moxham piece is definitely the answer. 

These turntables from UO are a thing of beauty! A great way to chill out and listen to old school records and also look great in your home, I love this gold one so perfect for the festive season!

Faux fur clutches have been everywhere this season and I think it's about time that I invest! They looks so great with sparkly party dresses or even just to jazz up a simple outfit, I love the pastel shade of this Whistles one, it's definitely a winner for me!

Monthly Must Haves (Christmas Gift Guide) - Amy


With little over a month to go, the only shopping we're all doing is Christmas shopping! So for our monthly must haves this month, we have compiled a list of our festive faves. Whether they're gifts for loved ones, or just a cheeky 'from me, love me', I think there is a little something for everyone to get into the spirit of things!

Topshop Red Tartan Pyjamas
One of the most important festive outfits is your pj's for Christmas Eve! These check babies look so cosy don't you think?

Customised Starbucks Red Cup Phone Case
This why I love etsy! Carry your red cup around with you all day with this amazing phone case

Swatch Watch
I think watches are one of the nicest gifts you can give as a gift (even if the receiver is time effiecent!) and Swatch are one of the best bugdet brands on the high street. Their slick designs are perfect for every day use

Tatty Devine Holly Necklace
My absolute faves when it comes to jewellery, love this seasonal little number!

Topshop Check Scarf
Who doesn't love a new scarf in the winter?

Florain Mini Vienna Leather Bag
Spreading the joy - I have recently been gifted this gorgeous little bag myself and I am absolutely in love with it! Perfectly practical for everyday use in high quality leather and statement colour - I want it to make someone else as happy as it makes me!

Ray Ban Wayfarers via Red Hot Sunglasses
Christmas is time for indulgences but we can't ignore the awful weather that comes along with it! Get excited about summer already with a brand new pair of designer sunnies - I will always be a classic wayfarer girl

Topshop Seasons Greetings Sweater
Of course I had to include a Christmas Jumper! Not as tacky and in yer face as some options out there, but a little bit of sparkly fun none the less

Kate Spade Sparkly Shoes via Daniel Footwear
The perfect party shoes! I am head over heels (cough) in love with these

As the nights are longer, it was only a matter of time before we got a little creative with night time shooting! But what a perfect location for our military themed post 'Atten-tion' As you all are probably aware military influences are slowly creeping back into our wardrobes so make sure you are kitted out in style!

I went for a slightly different angle on the military front with a uniform vibe rocking the pleated skirt with chunky knit and a cute little beret which I absolutely love and this look is totally wearable for AW14!

Boohoo are absolutely killing it this season and this leopard print maxi has fast become my new staple coat, infact the whole outfit is from Boohoo showing you can be on trend on a budget and look great! Whether you go all out army this season or go for a subtle barrack babe uniform, we would love to hear your military operation for the season...

Atten-tion - Amy

Zara Coat, Topshop Camo Tee, Topshop Black Denim Dungarees, Marc Jacobs Sunglasses c/o Red Hot Sunglasses, Pointed Boots c/o Missguided











One of those on-going AW trends has to be Military. But despite the re-occuring theme, this year is by far my favourite yet - military influences are coming in much cleaner and much simpler this time around. Gone are the insane amounts of army jackets and chunky lace up's are a thing of the past! AW14 is all about slick, chic uniforms.

This double breasted Zara coat is spot on for this look - perfectly smart and clean cut, and the perfect way to dress up the dungarees (if these take your fancy, size up!). I did want a little nod to the must-have military print so layered a camouflage tee over a white collar to get that dressed up feel.

I finished off with my new favourite patent booties from Missguided and these AMAZING sunnies from Red Hot Sunglasses to give the overall look the 'cool' edge it needed.

You can always rely on Motel to find you the perfect dress for any occasion and when we were contacted by mega babe Analise we of course jumped at the chance to style up one of our favourite brands in our own way. I chose the new Static Rose Venice Dress which has an amazing plunge neckline and all over monochrome rose print. See the other items in the print HERE

I wore this stunning dress on a night out the other week and got so many compliments, I took the plunge and wore it with no bra and lots of necklaces and absolutely loved it! For a day look I wanted to style it up with layers so layered my ASOS crochet high neck top under it, I love the detail and instantly made the dress wearable for the day!

It's got cold the last few weeks so layered over it my new Bank rose cardigan which has a gorgeous almost vintage print all over it and I love all the colours. Let's take a moment to appreciate the BAG! The most perfect red bag which not only fit's everything in it but is also bang on trend with the colour for the season! This work of art is from british brand Florian and I highly recommend them for quality and style. Are you in love as much as I am?! Last but not least my godsend in Amsterdam last weekend my Daniel Footwear black long leather boots. So simple, so well made and the perfect shape for day wear!

This post proves white isn't just for summer and there's lots of amazing crisp white pieces that are perfect for winter to! What's your favourite white piece you can't live without?!
