Rock city

A while ago I won a blog competition thanks to Sarah. My prize was a £60 shoe voucher for the online shoe boutique Sarenza. It took me ages to decide what I wanted but last week I finally chose a pair and they arrived quick snap in the post. I wanted a shoe that was going to be practical yet cool i.e. something flat and on trend for winter. I love brogues but already own a few pairs so decided to go with a boot shape instead. The shoes I chose are quite edgy so I dressed accordingly.

Tee from Ashish @ Topshop
Leather Jacket from Primark
Skirt from Topshop
Leggings from ASOS
Boots from Sarenza

The shoes have a small heel but are still mega comfy so all-in-all I am thrilled with my choice and FYI Sarenza are really good on the customer service front plus delivery is free and very speedy!

Most of this outfit is brand new (naughty) except the skirt. I picked this faux leather jacket up in Primark when I was visiting The Boy in Leeds this week. I've been looking for the perfect black leather jacket for ages and this one pretty much ticks all my boxes. I think it looks decent enough and not too cheap so top marks on that one Primark. The leggings are part of my leopard print AW10 obsession. I am loving leopard print at the minute and these leggings are a dream. I've asked for a faux fur leopard print coat for Christmas and a cardigan I've seen in Topshop. The tee is from the new Ashish range at Topshop and I love it. Bisous bisous is French for xoxo which is a total Gossip Girl phrase. After watching the first 2 episodes of the new series and bisous bisous being quoted at the end of each ep I knew I had to have this tee. The black lettering is in velvet and the fit is fab, I LOVE it!!!!

The whole rock chic vibe isn't something I normally channel when I'm getting dressed but today was an exception and I rather like it. When I was a teen I was really into the whole band tees, baggy jeans and trainers but these days it's a much more sophisticated affair.

Any who I'm off to a boat party tonight to celebrate my birthday. I don't actually turn 24 till next month but because I'm away travelling I decided to have an early party with my friends before I go. The theme is nautical and at the minute my Mum is painting a stripey tshirt for me!!!!

I promise to do a travelling post tomorrow night before I head off on Sunday. I am really excited but still have lots to sort out.

Have a great weekend x
