Winter Warmers
One of my new years resolutions ......to continue to visit new places!

With some time off over the festive period (and having eaten a little too much!)...... I visited The Friars in Aylesford.  A frosty morning, bluebird sky, I took in the fresh air and the beautiful grounds.  An ancient religious house of the Order of the Carmelites dating back to the 13th century, it was peaceful, relaxing and tranquil.

As the frost lay over the grounds, I was sure to wrap up warm! Nothing better than a roll neck jumper (to keep your neck warm) and some simply skinny jeans.  Plus my new navy knit cape which was a present for Christmas.  Double knitwear!!

After the frost....hopefully comes the snow?!!  I hope!  Stay warm everyone!

The Cape
Chilly, crisp, frosty mornings ........ just want to feel warm and snug?

Wrap yourself up in A/W's must have cover-up.  This one chic piece can transform the most simple of outfits. The cape....a soft knit jumper, skinny pants and leather boots creates a great casual look.  

Accessorize up?  Add a scarf, hat or headband for extra cosyness!  My collection of hats is very minimal (not many styles suit me), but I decided to branch out.

Winter sun.......... yes please!

What better way to spend my last holiday of the year......a girly weekend in Dubai with our friend Tracy, my mum and my sister!

An action-packed few days... a trip up the Burj Khalifa, shopping in the Dubai Mall, an abra boat ride around Souk Madinat Jumeirah and much, much more!

Conscious of the warm temperatures and respecting the Islamic dress code I packed loose, cool clothing and comfy flats.  Sunnies, messenger bag, my hair tied up and of course....my camera!

Two-Piece
Skirts & Sweaters Season!

For a simple transitional combo this Autumn team a soft sweatshirt with a textured skirt.  The balance of a warm top but bare legs and skate pumps is perfect for that downtime vibe.

I love to vary my look; from city chic...to beach babe....to country girl.  But today's look.....Sports Style.  The sun was still shining but the temperature slightly chilly........perfect for a skirt/sweatshirt combo!  

Love matching pieces?  For me it depends on the pieces or the print!  I love matching tailored separates.... especially cute short suits. But I was instantly drawn to this landscape print casual two piece!
