Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth

Smart black coat - c/o Clothing At Tesco
Black dipped hem vest top - Topshop
Crystal gold coloured statement necklace - Primark
Khaki green skinny jeans - Primark
Black leather heeled ankle boots - Topshop
Black chain handbag - Zara

Yellow socks - Not supposed to be on show!

Looking at these photos i'm not sure I like the outfit! The jeans kinda make me looks like I have sausage legs ha. Thankfully they've loosen up a bit now i've worn them for a day. Anyone else find jeans fit better after they've been worn a few times? A few weeks ago at the Clothing at Tesco press day we were very kindly given a gift voucher in our goody bags so I treated myself to a new winter coat. In Britain you can never have too many coats! It reminds a bit of the Zara version but at a much more purse-friendly price. It's brillant for work and smart enough to wear for a night out over a dress. The necklace is my new favourite and was only a fiver from Primark. Bargain!

I bet you'd all forgotten what i'd looked like thanks to the lack of outfit posts eh? These were a total embrassement to take - nothing like a neighbour doing his painting while watching you pose outside your house!

A snapshot #18

This week has been another busy week - I need to slow down a bit as it's not good for my bank account or my sleeping pattern. I fear it's only going to get worse coming up to the festive season. With Meat Liquor and Wahaca both on the menu this week my skinny jeans are starting to feel a bit snug so next week i'll be on a health kick! I went with a few friends to see Rizzle Kicks on Friday and despite too much being alcohol comsumed it was such a good night. I couldn't wish for better people to do the hump with! London is beginning to feel very Christmassy with the reindeers at Westfield and giant Christmas trees in Covent garden - this year will be the first time in six years i'm not working so i'm very much looking forward to it. Not 5AM wake up calls on Boxing Day!

Have you had a jam-packed week too?

Traffic People S/S 13 Press Day

This week I was very kindly invited along to Traffic People to have a sneak peak at their S/S preview. Although i'd heard of the brand i'd never really paid it much attention but boy have I been missing out. Everything is right up my street! The theme next season is based on 1950's Americano style with lots of pretty prints and retro cuts. I adore anything vintage inspired so will be keeping an eye out for all these pieces.

The top yellow dress stole my heart as soon as I saw it - the midi length and vintage style will be perfect for next summer. The blue stripy dress also caught my eye - just look at the yellow piping. To be honest I mentally spent a fortune admiring all the gorgeous clothes!

Which is your favourite item of clothing?

Thanks so much to Lois at Carrot Top PR for the invite.
