Regular readers will know now that I am obsessed with all black looks. For me, they are so easy and require little to no thought when getting dressed. What goes with my black trousers? My black top. And what goes with my black top? My black shoes. Plus, in my opinion, they look chic and glamorous. And for the office I like looks that really don’t require too much thought when I’m still half asleep in the morning!
If there is a black option for a piece of clothing that I like, I will inevitably choose that over any other option.
So whilst browsing the sale racks in Dorothy Perkins the other day I was instantly drawn to the rail of black tops – all for £5 and under! And so I snagged two new black tops.
Of course, I had to wear one of them immediately:
I teamed my new black peplum Dorothy Perkins top with my black H&M trousers and black Clarks court shoes.
The ease with an all black look too is that accessories and make-up can be used to add colour.
Do you choose colourful or all black looks? What do you think of my look today?
My summer holiday might be over already but that doesn’t mean I can’t still dream! And fill my virtual wardrobe with summery pieces that I won’t ever be able to wear during the British summer:
H&M has some particularly pretty pieces this season. Have you shopped their summer collection yet?
A girl can never have too many Little Black Dresses, in my opinion. This is my holiday LBD. I rarely wear it except when on my holidays. The length is a little difficult to work with when I’m not in a laid back mood:
I am totally loving print trousers for spring. Teamed with a plain tee and bright heels, they look great for the office. And they don’t have to be expensive either. Both of my pairs have come in under a tenner! I’ve picked out my five favourites from H&M:

Have you tried the print trouser trend? How do you wear yours?
The MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA for H&M collection was last autumn’s most anticipated collaboration on the high street. If you failed to get your hands on anything, fear not, as the H&M website currently has some gems, like the asymmetric calf-length crêpe dress above, in the sale at ridiculous prices!
#1: Long, draped, figure-fit dress; #2: Short inside-out leather biker jacket; #3: Gently flared knee-length crêpe skirt; #4: Knee-length wraparound dress; #5: Small leather handbag.
Did you buy anything from the collection when it was launched last autumn? Will you try to pick anything up in the sale now?
I am currently lusting after this batik tie dye dress by H&M which will work equally as well in the office as for dinner and drinks after a day at work. For less than £20 it’s a bargain not to be missed!
Plus, these codes are currently working for H&M too and can be combined!

What do you think of the dress?
The Swedish powerhouse behind H&M is launching a new brand for Spring 2013 and the hype begins now.
& Other Stories will offer women a wide range of shoes, bags, accessories, beauty and ready-to-wear to create their personal style, or story. With diverse lines, ranging from masculine tailoring to feminine chic, the collection is designed to provide endless styling choices. The aim is to create lasting wardrobe treasures within a wide price range.
Hats are one of the quickest and easiest ways to not only keep warm in the colder months but also to update your look. I love my faux fur Cossack style hat for adding a little something to an otherwise dull or plain outfit. But this season, I’m craving a felt fedora to update my look:
Shop the look: 1. Next Felt Floppy Hat; 2. Reiss Wide Brim Trilby; 3. Warehouse Wide Brimmed Trilby; 4. H&M Wool Hat; and 5. Reiss Wide Brim Trilby.
How do you keep your head warm in the winter?
H&M’s neon necklace proved a huge hit with bloggers and fashionistas every this summer and sold out nearly everywhere within days. If you didn’t manage to get your hands on, fear not, as they have just realised a pink version for AW12. And it is just as beautiful:
And it’s still only £9.99!
These amazing print trousers are perfect for Autumn 2012. Print trousers were hot for SS12 and the trend has definitely made the transition into AW12 too. If you’re still looking for the perfect pair at the perfect price, look no further:
I received these trousers in the post yesterday and had to put them straight on this morning:
