Converse hits McArthur Glen!

Last weekend I had a very lovely visit to the new Converse store that’s recently launched at East Midlands McArthurglen Designer Outlet and we were greeted by wall to wall Converse – exactly what you’d expect.

I know what you’re thinking, weren’t they all just random neon yellow pairs that no one wanted from online? I’m not going to lie to you, there were a few random pairs knocking about on their sample sale style walls but seriously, there were so many bargains and so many pairs that you’d really want. These guys? £60 on the highstreet – so many pairs in every size for £40. That’s a £20 saving and £20 more to spend in the Cadbury outlet store. Yep.

Mixing textures: Faux fur, leather look & borg

This winter has seemed to go on for ever, right? I feel like hardly a day’s gone past when I’ve not worn my aviator jacket because it’s just possibly the warmest thing that I’ve bought this season.

I wanted to change things up and *try* to wear a different coat for once so this Primark borg teddy coat came into play! It’s so cute, surprisingly warm and I think it was only £20. I don’t think it’s available in stores anymore because like the psychos that the fashion industry are, the spring stuff is already out! There’s a similar piece here from New Look on ASOS which is also amazing so if you’re still in the market for a teddy coat there’s definitely some out there on the high street.

My denim evolution

Denim is one of those things that I think people have comfort blankets with, it definitely is for me. I’m 80% a skinny jeans girl these days and have been for a long time now. Pre-skinny jeans days it was all about the boot cut for the school disco, right? And before the boot cut days it was all about the skater fit jeans – remember those Tammy Girl dreamboats? Amazing. The more ripped, the baggier, the grubbier, the better. Those were the days. My jeans evolution has grown with me as I’m sure it has for most people my age and denim will always be my number one go-to for the start of an outfit.

Finding your ‘going out’ style – easy or dilemma?

Going out ‘out’ is a funny thing! It’s a bit of a mine field for casual gals like me and it kind of sets me into panic mode. I don’t like to really show much skin apart from my legs but then I stress out about being cold. Does anyone else do this? I then stress about being over or under dressed!

Let me know your go-to going out style in the comments, maybe you’ll inspire me!
