My 18th Birthday

I’m 18! My 18th birthday was on Monday and it’s so weird that I’m an adult now! To celebrate, I went out to dinner in London with my family. We had dinner at Piccolino on Heddon Street and the nearest tube station is Piccadilly Circus. If you hadn’t already figured from the name, Piccolino serves Italian cuisine which is my favourite and I’d definitely recommend this restaurant. I had linguine with king prawns and courgettes (Linguine ai Gamberetti) and it was delicious. Then, we decided to have pudding and drinks at Hotel Cafe Royal which is just up the road from Piccolino, on Regents Street. I opted for a light chocolate mousse alongside a cocktail called Bela (Sagatiba Velha Cachaca, white grapes, strawberries, passion fruit juice, mint). I had such a good birthday and thanks to everyone who made it such a special day!

I wore my Zara jumpsuit in blue tile print (need to get legs taken up- they are a bit baggy!) with Clarks black ankle boots, my mum’s oversized navy coat, Cambridge Satchel and dangle navy earrings from Accessorize.

OOTD- Life is a great sunrise

Hey guys! Today’s post is an OOTD featuring my trusty Zara oversized coat which I also wore in my last outfit post. I got ready really quickly this morning so that I could take some photos whilst the sun was rising and luckily I was just in time! With my tan coat I chose to wear my Topshop short-sleeved silky t-shirt with a check and floral half and half pattern and I clashed it with my Topshop burgundy velvet floral shorts. Then I added Zara caramel thin belt, M&S thick grey tights and Clarks black shoes. I completed the look with a plaited hair-do which is a fab solution for a bad hair day and if any one wants to see a tutorial on how to create this hairstyle just comment saying so! It’s been a lovely sunny day today and it has been a refreshing change to the horrible raining weather we’ve been having recently. I hope everyone’s having a nice weekend!-Hope you like- Enjoy!

OOTD- Zara Oversized Coat

Today’s post is going to be a wintry OOTD, built around my new Zara Oversized tan coat. I wore this outfit at the weekend when I made a frantic trip to London to do some last-minute Christmas shopping! The oversized coat is a big trend for A/W13 and I love Celine’s and Stella McCartney’s swing on this trend, but I opted for one from Zara! I then threw on my chunky patterned scarf by Electronic Sheep (which I have worn to death over the years), my vintage white blouse, Topshop floral paperbag skirt, M&S grey wooly tights and my tan ankle boots from Hush Puppies. This look can be re-created with any oversized coat and I feel this look has an element of class and it is very¬†effortless. Also, I think the patterned scarf really offsets the whole look- Hope you like!- Enjoy!
