Pink Duster OOTD

 This coat has to be the most colourful thing I own now and I am in love with it. The colour is a really dusty muted pink with a soft touch (and fab wrist ties). I can pair it with all my much loved basics and it really makes an outfit. 
Another amazing find are these boots. I have a pair I bought from Zara over a year ago now very similar and I have always had so many people ask about them, I've worn them so much they're falling apart and really needed to get myself a replacement. When I saw these boots online I instantly loved them, they fit perfectly around the ankle, and for only £25(!!) a really great buy.

This outfit is all from Misspap (minus my Mansur Gavirel wanna be bag) and with code 'OLIVIAH10' everything I've linked below comes to just under £80! I've been a fan of theirs for a long time now and they're really great for on trend pieces!

Happy Sunday,

Statement Sleeve OOTD

I picked up this super fancy top from Topshop recently, I'm in love with the sleeves! The material is so slinky and soft, I'm all about minimal colours and statement shapes so this is right up my street.
I'm planning to be little bit more adventurous when I wear it next, I have a new culotte jumpsuit I think it could look fab layered under! For today I paired it with these tailored trousers, black boots and my trusty Misguided bucket bag.
I'm back in the swing of 3rd year now and currently living and breathing my new project I'm working on, I'm really enjoying it though! Hopefully I'll have some work to share with you soon!
Happy Saturday,

October Wishlist & Inspiration

I've finally accepted it's now 100% autumn, which on the plus side means all the pumpkin spice lattes I can afford. I'm already noticing I'm drawn to all the chunky knits. I've done a fair bit of shopping recently but here's a few bits I'm still after! (also wouldn't they make a fab outfit all together too?!). They're mostly staple wardrobe items, I can see myself wearing an outfit like this next autumn and it still being 'on trend', which is the beauty of neutral colours and classic shapes!

I use Pinterest as my main source of inspiration for my wardrobe. Maybe because of the nature of pattern cutting I look for shape before anything, then fabric followed by clever details. I've really found my love for velvet this season, although it comes around every year it has never been me. Who'd of thought it now I have 2 pairs of velvet shoes, in the words of Bieber- 'never say never' hey!

Happy Monday,

Jumper Dress OOTD

 Long time no post! I've done a little shopping recently and excited to share some autumn ideas with you! This season I'm loving a good jumper dress at the moment, it was terrible weather today but I didn't feel the cold one bit with this dress! I'm also obsessing over this Mango bag, I love the simple tie detail on the front. Plus it can be used with the chain tucked as a clutch (justified that as two bags for the price of one)!

Cote d'Azur, Day 3: CANNES

For our third day on the French Riviera my boyfriend was keen to top up his tan and and do a bit more relaxing (up until this point I was trying to fit 21393423 activities into each day). I knew I wanted to explore Cannes at some point so we packed our beach stuff and headed for the beach. 

From memory the train cost €28 euro return for the two of us and took about 20mins from Nice (where our apartment was). As soon as we got off the train we walked for less than 10mins past shops and market stalls to the beach (it was sand not pebbles this time!). It was relatively busy, but a lot less than along Nice promenade. 

After a couple of hours we set off from the beach to find some lunch, along the promenade is filled with luxury designer stores and some very stylish looking bars and restaurants (also the most expensive I'd seen so far). We struggled to find somewhere that we could really stuff our faces so headed away from the coast (only just the street behind the shops) and instantly found more casual places to eat. We sat at a family run pizzeria, pizza and drinks each came to just under €40. We spent the rest of our time in Cannes back on the beach and exploring the shops, very relaxing and not too hectic this time!

For dinner I wore this Misspap jumpsuit, and nude courts. It's lovely and lightweight so it didn't feel uncomfortable to wear in the warm weather! We ate at Rina (a restaurant and oyster bar) in the old town. Although we were charged €8 for a bottle of water (!!), I had the most amazing goats cheese salad and my boyfriend said he his muscles were amazing!

Stay tuned for my last post of the holiday!

Cote d'Azur, Day 2: EZE & MONACO

Tuesday I took us to the small village of Éze, it’s only a 15min train from Ville Nice. From Éze station we caught the 83 bus that took 20 mins and cost €1.50 into the village. It’s a beautiful old village that felt very remote, even though it accommodated for tourists, having most signs translated into English. 

We walked uphill to Le Jardin Exotique. The walk up is scattered with trinket shops and restaurants built into the mountain. Once at the top the garden costs €6 to enter and well worth it. It’s a garden of cacti and aloe vera plants with a stunning view of the coast. On the walk down we stopped at a restaurant, shared half a bottle of wine and ate the best salad imaginable (people literally stopped to order the same as us while they were passing by!). Our bill came to just under €50, but again we felt we'd totally had our moneys worth.We took the 83 bus back to Éze station and then caught another 15 min train to Monaco. Be aware the ticket machines only take card or coins, if there isn’t a change machine nearby it can be tricky to change notes into coins! The train to Monaco cost €4 for 2 of us, and took us right near the port.

Once in Monaco we found a bar with a beautiful view of the port and relaxed with a glass of rosé, the boats are incredible! We followed signs to the casino (that famous one James Bond was filmed in) but decided to go into the one next door. I’m definitely not one for gambling my money so when my boyfriend was down after minutes of entering we headed back and jumped on a fast train (15mins) back to Nice and again only cost us as little as €7.80.

For dinner we headed back to the old town of Nice and ate at La Favola, amazing food! Huge portions, we were laughing with an english couple next to us about how you really could feed a family on one pasta dish. Again our meal came to just under €50, so a really good price too!
We finished our day with another stroll along the Promenade, so beaut' at night!
