Grey Is Neutral

Thursday, 11 December 2014

So here's the thing, if I could dress this way all the time I would. This is my favourite kind of style, I absolutely love the chique feel to it, I love everything about those people who are dressed really quite simply but then the addition of heels and a gorgeous coat just make the whole look. On Pinterest (find me here) you'll see that the majority of outfits I pin are like this one and I'm really excited I've managed to recreate something similar (in my opinion of course, you may completely disagree with me). 

I feel like this is the path I want to take with my blog, I want to dress more maturely but then I think realistically, how often do I actually go out in high heels? I mean, on a day to day basis it just isn't functional for me. Imagine, off to university for a full day of lectures in a pair of heels, and a coat so long it gets caught in every door. I love fashion, and I love this type of look but for my everyday routine it just doesn't work. Hopefully when I 'grow up' (I'm turning 20 next week *eeek*) I'll be able to dress however I want and not feel silly walking down the street. Somehow, I think it's a confidence thing - I don't know why but the only people I ever imagine seeing in heels on a daily basis are celebrities haha! This is sort of turning into something other than a blog post - not quite sure what though - so onto the look!

Like I said, I love this style! It's funny because when I really love an outfit, it's never that popular with you guys haha! Nonetheless, I've been wearing a lot of black recently so this is the total opposite. Apparently white jeans in the winter are a no-no. Well, I disagree, I think they're the perfect offset to black during the colder months; what I would say is to wear them with a longer coat (we all know how messy white jeans can get), you could sit somewhere or lean against a wall and that's them stained for the day - not a good look. The rest is simple, a ribbed knit jumper, a coat, heels, a bag, and of course some jewellery and you're ready for the day.

Also, what do you think of my hairstyle? I had my hair this way the whole time I was in London and loved it! Although, nobody else seemed to like it, but I think it's such a fun way t keep those strands of hair out of your face and to add a little more volume - my hair is so flat and in the winter just looks awful. I'm due for a cut soon though and have a few hair bits I want to share with you in either a blog post or video, let me know what you think.

What's your ideal style?
