One item of clothing I’ve been on the lookout for recently is a good pair of leather (faux or otherwise) trousers. I already have one fab pair from Missguided which have a really cool crocodile-skin effect, but I wanted something plainer to add to my collection and this pair from AX Paris are perfect! They’re not matte but aren’t too shiny, and also aren’t movement restricting-ly tight. The also have some nice detail on the knee, a non-leather strip on the inner leg and are faux leather so are vegi and vegan friendly. I think I will be getting a lot of wear out of them this winter, but here I paired them with another new piece from Choies – this very Alexander Wang-esque (I think so anyway!) textured jumper. I rolled the bottom cuff under here as the length sat awkwardly with the trousers, but I like that this jumper actually fits me rather than being cropped or oversized like most of my others. My adorable Choies Marc By Marc Jacobs-esque flats made an appearance too as it was a dry day.
I also wore my AMAZING new Primark coat which I’ve lived in since I finally got my hands on it after seeing it online months ago. It’s so fab I’m almost tempted to go back and buy another in case it bobbles easily… hm. At £32 it is a steal compared to pretty much every other high street alternative; all hail Primark!
Jersey midi dresses are perfect to dress up or down – I love this monochrome striped one from AX Paris*, I wore it yesterday for uni and lunch out. Monochrome can be paired with literally anything, yesterday I wore it with some gold tones in my boots, necklace, rings and the studs on my amazing Haute & Rebellious coat*.

You may have gathered from a couple of my recent posts that I’m obsessed with the colour white at the moment, and also with the newly rejuvenated monochrome trend. I love this 1960s-esque high neck a-line dress in a creamy white from AX Paris – I belted it because I think it suits me more, but I think it would look stunning without a belt on someone with a smaller chest. I wore a slicked back ponytail because I think it suits the sophisticated look of the dress, but dressed it down a little with my trusty Underground creepers. It could easily be dressed up with heels for a night out though! The dress comes in three other colours if you’re not feeling the white trend as much as I am, and at £25 I think it’s a great, simple piece to add to your wardrobe.

This week I received this super cute polka dot dress from AX Paris and decided that it was the perfect opportunity to use the iron on swallow patches I bought recently from eBay. At £2.19 for the pair the patches are an absolute bargain and are easy, quick and completely mess free to apply to any dress, t-shirt or even a bag.
I wore a baby pink belt around my waist to add a little pop of colour to my outfit, and wore Underground creepers on my feet. This outfit is quite rockabilly-esque, what do you think?
It might sound mundane to write this post from the ‘every girl needs a good LBD’ angle, but there is no other way to go about it because that statement is so true! This particular dress, which I received courtesy of AX Paris, is perfect: its use of faux leather panels and mesh make it an interesting and slightly different take on a classic LBD, whilst the figure hugging fabrics make it super flattering too. Here I decided to accessorise the black only with silver, including heels from Topshop, a simple clutch bag from Primark and these amazing embellished tights by Pretty Polly, which I received courtesy of Tights Please.
I received this beautiful Galaxy Plat Strap Maxi Dress in the post today, courtesy of AX Paris. It’s perfect with a lightweight denim jacket and sandals for warm summery weather like we’ve been having in England this week, or could be dressed up with a pair of heels for a meal or evening out. The fit of the dress is ideal and super flattering for most body shapes. Additionally, the ever popular galaxy print is really striking and any of the three dresses in the Galaxy Collection is sure to turn a few heads.
