OOTD: PLEATHER PASTELS

I’m trying desperately to teach my boyfriend how to take pictures for my outfit posts, I’ve had quite a few that were just unusable. however with this 20 minute, 500 photo shoot, I managed to salvage a few to use. so, I bring to you, pleather pastels.

I’m loving the Autumn/Winter trends this year, its all very biker, tartan & grungy. I do love a little bit of a girly touch though so that was my inspiration for this look. I think its important to not go too gloomy in the colder weather so decided to mix things up a little and incorporate this bright scarf into this edgy look.
I work in an office, so Monday – Thursday is pretty much dresses and blazers, but every Friday is ‘dress down day’ where we can wear smart/casual attire. This was what I wore this last Friday.

Coated Disco Pants  |  Newlook  |  £22.99
I was kind of on a spending ban, when Newlook text to let me in on 25% off for cardholders, honestly, it would be rude not to at least have a look, right?
whilst browsing the tall section (something I love about Newlook) I came across these beauties. To be honest at first I thought pffftt £22.99 for basically a pair of leggings, but when I considered the 25% off I slipped them in my basket, and I’m so happy I did. These are so comfortable and stretchy and they are really high waisted, so if like me your a little insecure of those lumps and bumps, these are a great buy.

Grey Faded Jumper  |  Primark  |  £10
I found this in my local Primark, and could not believe the quality, this honestly feels so soft and cosy, it’s well structured and was an absolute bargain in my opinion. Its a great length for both leggings (covers the bum) and jeans and goes with pretty much anything. I love it.

Pastel Scarf  |  Gift from Egypt
This scarf was a gift from Egypt from a friend a few years back. Its a bit of an awkward length and is neither here nor their so I’ve struggled in the past to find things to wear it with, despite my love of the colour. I think the contrast between grungy pleather and this girly pastel scarf works great.

Pastel Pink Statement Necklace  |  Primark  |  £3.99
I saw this necklace in Primark and had to snap it up, its so pretty and perfect for jazzing up a plane T or jumper. You would usually expect to pay between 10 and 15 pounds for a necklace of this size. Yes, its quality isn’t as good as those expensive ones, but for the price you cant go wrong. I think its gorgeous.

Checked Pleather Sleeve Blazer  |  F&F  |  £15
This was one of the many things I picked up at the F&F 50% sale recently, this was before I banned myself from spending! Lets just say I went a little crazy haha.
This was love at first sight its gorgeous and so comfortable, and with the checked body and leather look sleeves, its right on trend. What more could you ask for?

Leather & Suede Boots  |  Aldo  |  £100
Finally these boots. ahhhh they are just THE BEST! When I recently attended the Next Blogger Network event in October, I got the chance to meet the lovely Lily Pebbles and Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup. During the whole seminar I couldn’t help but stare and Lily’s boots, so much so, that I had to ask her where they were from. Would you believe, that very day my boyfriend won a bet on the football and gave me £100. a sign? surely haha. I couldn’t resist, I whipped these straight up and couldn’t be happier with them.

 

What do you think of this look? whats your staple item this Autumn/Winter?
