Winter Outfits – High Street Shops

14 Dec Evening Winter Outfit

Here are some affordable high street outfit ideas.

I’ve collected together a casual and evening outfit. After searching for ideas I actually ended up ordering nearly all these items and after quite a bit of hinting to my boyfriend, I now will be getting the Zara boots for Christmas. Yippee!

Casual Winter Outfit

High street casual winter outfit ideas

  • Shirt New Look £22.99. This winter I am obsessed with wearing oversized shirts with leggings or jeans. I love the casual comfy look.
  • Jeans Topshop £44.00. Skinny jeans are my fav and I love the ripped look to grunge up the outfit.
  • Boots Zara £59.99. Perfect boots for the cold winter weather. The patent and chain also gives that grungy look.
  • Hat Very.co.uk £20.00. As a cat obsessed person, I completely fell for this Bowler Cat Ear hat when I saw it. It’s so cute as adds a little fun to the outfit.
Evening Winter Outfit

  • Top River Island £16.00. This yellow ribbed fitted top adds a splash of colour to any dreary day.
  • Skirt Miss Selfridge £45.00. Leather look skirts are much cheaper than actual leather and I think they do the job just as well.
  • Shoes Dorothy Perkins £25.00. A classic pair of black patent pointed court heels compliment any outfit. (I’m clearly loving the patent shoe look this winter.)
  • Necklace Mickey £21.00. I always wear dramatic necklaces as they add so much character to an outfit. They are probably what most people compliment me on about my outfits. It gives the outfit a little bling for any Christmas celebrations.

I hope you like my winter outfits and got a little inspiration from them.

What I Would Buy If..

3 Jun

Last week, whist walking around oxford street on my lunch break from an extremely boring promo job I was working on, I couldn’t resist the temptation of wondering into a few shops. Normally this would be heaven for me but as I am so very poor at the moment, it was torture. Working as a jobbing actress is great for my artistic licence but terrible for my bank balance. I am currently making pack lunches and bringing a hit flask with me on a night out. Oh yes, it has got that bad.

During my torture hour on Oxford Street I saw so many items that I would normally buy without any thought but I had to strongly use my will power to resist. So instead of buying them I thought I would put them on my blog because if I can’t wear these items at least I can look at them… It’s the same thing right?!?

Oh, a girl can dream!




I love the simplicity of this dress. You can just chuck it on with a pair of sandles and you are ready too go. Its from Miss Selfridge at £26.








Yum! These shoes are perfect for a summers day. I love the chunkyness of the shoe. There from Topshop at £65.


Dorothy Perkins Stripe Wrap Shirt




I’m loving thick stripes at them moment. Not only do I want to wear them but I also want to decorate my house with them. This shirt is beautiful and falls so nicely. It’s from Dorothy Perkins at £40.







I have been looking for so long for a pair of high waisted shorts that I love. Finally I stumbled across this gorgeous pair. They are from River Island at £28.







This is such a pretty summery dress that is perfect for a lazy summers day. I love the bright yellow. I may have blonde hair but it won’t stop me from wearing yellow. Its from Topshop at £18.







I am in desperate need of a backpack. Firstly they look good, secondly the are better for your shoulders and thirdly it will make my journey on my bike a lot easier. The studs on this bag make it for me. Its a perfect size to stuff everything it and it looks so good. Its from River Island at £40.



My April Outfit

3 Apr

So as the weather in England has been absolutely pants this year I am still wearing all my winter clothes which is really annoying as all I want to do is crack out all my summer clothes. However I am trying to brighten up the month of April with my outfits.

Outfit of the Day

I have tried to make this outfit as summery as possible without looking silly wearing it in the wind and rain. It is skirt season and I don’t care if it is cold, I am wearing a skirt. I have matched it with a bright pink shirt to brighten the look up, and of course I can’t wear any outfit without a statement necklace at the moment.

Punk Rock Spiked Necklace

Dorothy Perkins Striped Pencil Skirt











  • Pink Shirt – H&M sale. I got it for around £7 in the sale last week, so if you like it I’m sure you will be able to find it if your lucky.
  • Skirt – Dorothy Perkins £14. I love this skirt. I think this striped jersey tube style of skirt is flattering on all body shapes.
  • Necklace – eBay £1.77. I always get compliment on this costume jewellery necklace and its great because it was so cheap. Search Ebay for Punk Rock Spike Necklace and you should be able to find it.
  • Belt – Back of my wardrobe. I bought this years ago at a car-boot sale and I think it adds that little bit extra to an outfit about without being too bling!
  • I pair this outfit with a pair of spiked boots from Office Shoes (forgot to take a photo of them…oops.)
