The pink fluffy coat

Probably one of my favourite purchases of this year: the pink fluffy coat. I bought this gem from Newlook a few weeks ago and haven't looked back to be honest (I also have it in the cream and love that too).  I will link it at the bottom of the post along with similar alternatives!

The style is a trend that was around last year and has come back again, so hopefully will last a while longer too! The teddy jacket/coat is one that matches so many outfits and is great to add some texture to a simple look.

One of my favourite ways to styles mine is with a neutral colour palette underneath, then the pop of pink on top. The jumper is a cropped grey one from Topshop; a staple to have in your winter wardrobe.

The trousers are from Newlook and have a thin white stripe running down each side. The style has been around for a while now and I LOVE how comfy and easy to wear they are!

For shoes I went simple. I'm wearing my very well loved black and white converse which are in keeping with the neutral colour palette I went for.

The other day, I also styled this coat with a burgundy skirt, black top, tights and boots for a meal out and the pink on top looked so nice alongside the autumnal tones!

It's all about the checks

I think one of the biggest trends this season is checks. Along with animal print, they are everywhere and I kinda love it!

 Scrolling through ASOS and check trousers in particular seem to pop up a lot. To be honest though, they can be quite intimidating to style to me, but I think I've found one of my favourite ways to wear them!  Incase anyone else is struggling, I thought I would share how I style mine and some pieces I think work well with any pair.

I've styled mine with a cropped sweatshirt from Stradivarius. It's a neutral colour, so a perfect basic piece for your wardrobe every season. Because the trousers are so high wait, it sits nicely above for you to tuck in at the front to show the high detail of the trousers.

On the bottom I went for some chunky white trainers from Monki, also anything trend item around at the moment. I like how they add height, and again are neutral so don't make the outfit too busy and will match everything.

Then onto the trousers. As I said they are from Bershka and they have orange running through them, adding a subtle bit of colour to the outfit! They are quite a thin material, but it means they are comfy and easy to wear throughout the seasons as the weather changes!

My perfect base routine using two products

Finding a perfect base routine is something I've searched for for what feels like forever. Products can be amazing for one person, and just not right for another. However, I feel now I have found something that works perfectly for me and only feel it's right to share it in hope its right for someone else as well!

My favourite base comes in the form of the No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation and No7 Airbrush Away Finishing Powder. Firstly, the foundation  (which I apply with the Real techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge) blends into the skin with ease, leaving it looking smooth. The coverage is medium to full, however it still feels weightless on my skin. The finish is matte, without looking cakey, meaning I can wear it throughout the day and not have to worry about touching it up every two seconds!

The powder is then the perfect finish to my base. It sets my makeup in place, absorbs oils to take away and shine creeping in and seems to blur any imperfections. As it isn't cakey, it is perfect for any touch ups you need to make throughout the day!

In between these steps, I often apply a concealer under my eyes, but it can vary which one, whereas these often remain the same! I find that with the foundation, I rarely need to put any concealer around my face due to its high coverage!  I hope this helped and gave someone some new base products to try!

What are your go-to base products?

Seaside Stripes

On a slightly windy and dull day, my family and I took my two dogs to the beach at Weymouth for a day out. Whilst Oscar ( our 10 year old miniature Schnauzer) isn't a fan of the water, Loki (our 7 month Cockapoo) loved getting into the sea and then trying to dry off in the sand! It was his first time bless him so he got very excited about it all.

For my outfit, I wanted warmth and comfort, so opted for a staple piece of mine: pinstripe trousers. These ones are from ASOS (isn't everything though;)) and they work for so many occasions. You can dress them up, or style them casually with a simple t-shirt or jumper and some trainers. The jumper is last years Topshop but I will link a few similar as you can never go wrong with a cream jumper as it's perfect for all seasons!

ps. excuse the very windswept photos it was a challenge to get any decent ones on a very windy coastal day!
