The Essential Cosy Jumper: 3 Ways

3 Nov

Topshop duster coatOne of my key pieces this Autumn/Winter, is my cosy, ridiculously warm, beige wooly jumper. I’ve styled it in three different ways in this post to show how it can be worn in alternative combos!

River Island Hat

Topshop Duster CoatTo add a little detail to this outfit, I wore my black slip style dress underneath, which reveals a little bit of its lace trim just under the jumper. I also wore my (matrix style) black duster coat, added a hat for a splash of colour and finished with black, open toe Zara heels, which I must say are the comfiest heels I have ever worn! I can literally wear them for hours on a night out, dancing away, with no pain! They’re a heel dream.

The duster coat comes with detachable black/emerald faux fur around the neck, which I will be adding on as we move into winter!

Outfit minus the jacket

The material and the roll neck style of the jumper keeps me so warm, it is exactly what I need being up north!

DSC_0748Metallic is still around this season, so here I’ve put the jumper with metallic shorts and black ankle boots. You can always add black tights if it getting too cold for a bare leg, but I always feel I stay warm if my upper body is wrapped up! I wear these boots frequently in the daytime as they’re a great height for walking around and they are also high enough to wear on a casual night out. The boots also have side cut outs, so I like to wear coloured, print or glitter socks for an extra bit of detail.

Metallic Shorts ZaraMetallic Shorts ZaraLastly, my lazy day uni outfit… ripped jeans, jumper and trainers! Let’s be honest here… when you have to be up early and your brain isn’t working, this is going to be the obvious outfit choice!

Zara ripped jeansThe trainers are Nike Flyknits, which I spotted in the Nike store in Las Vegas and had to have after a few wins in the casino!

Nike FlynetsI have also purchased a black roll neck in a thinner material from H&M, which I have also been wearing in all these combos! The thinner roll neck jumper is my choice for when it’s slightly warmer outside.

I hope everyone has had a great start to November and please share this post if you’ve enjoyed!

Product of the week – Raincoats

Leeds is rainy, cold and windy… hence, I’m not a happy bunny up here today. The rain however led me to this product of the week! Pastels still look super cute coming into winter and this jacket is perfect for the weather right now.

Topshop – £55.00

For the FellaElvine

My favourite raincoat for guys is the Elvine – Grundens collaboration mac. A slightly more expensive choice, but this classic jacket is 100% wind and waterproof! The mac is available in more colours and also in womenswear!

DSC_0605I purchased this jumpsuit during the summer and I literally wore it every week! The all in one attire means you don’t have to spend time piecing together an outfit when you’re running late on morning! You can literally just throw it on and walla (voila)! Safe to say due to my morning routine… I wore a lot of jumpsuits! I shot it here with trainers and heels. Trainers I would wear to work and heels on a night out or for dinner etc. VERSATILE!

DSC_0618I’m going to be slipping black long sleeve tops under all my jumpsuits so I can keep wearing them this winter! There’s no reason to not take your summer pieces through to winter if you still like them, just add more layers!


Flower powerJust a quick one today, but I’ve finally settled back into university life now so will be able to get back into posting!

Happy Sunday!

New Years Eve Edition

6 Jan

I fell in love with velvet this season, hence the reason why I couldn’t resist this party outfit! The navy blue velvet jumpsuit that I opted for, rather than a dress for this New Year was tight fitting with a plunging neckline and had small subtle shoulder pads.

I felt comfortable with the low V as the rest of me was covered up, however the getting ready process did take a bit longer as I had to adjust two strips of magic tape down each side of my boobs to keep the suit in place for all my dancing activity! Some people may not need the tape but I didn’t want to take the risk of any ‘nip action’ (as most people know how my dancing goes on a night out!) Safe to say it worked!

I used body shop Honey Bronze products on my chest and a little bit of St Tropez the night before. The Honey Bronze products are really lovely as they give you a great shimmer for the evening.

The jumpsuit was from Missguided so I didn’t break my piggy bank for this outfit! I’d definitely recommend it as a ‘dressy dressy’ outfit if you don’t fancy getting your legs out! Missguided do loads of different styles too so you can find one that suits your body shape.

My magic tape aka ‘tit tape’ was from Boux Avenue and my shoes are from Primark.

The handbag which I am in love with and carried on the night is from Whistles. The luxurious leather clutch, can be paired with all sorts of outfits and shades thanks to its contrasting sides, one pink and one black. The classic design of this bag is timeless and I know I will be keeping this one until I’m old and grey.

Handbags are my weakness for splashing out, but as mother would say,
‘If it’s a classic it will last forever!’


I hope everyone had a fabulous night and Happy New Year!

Olive Loves.
