Transitional dressing with H&M

With the colder weather creeping in, it's getting harder for us to dress accordingly. Whilst we do get our share of rain and wind we do also get a dash of sunshine. So for this transitional period I wanted to show you guys 3 ways to style this H&M light jacket - perfect for the unpredictable weather and great for layering! 

For the first look I opted something thats suitable for a meeting. I'm often up in London 3-4 times a week and on the go so don't want to overdress incase the weather warms up. I've paired this checkered dress with the lightweight jacket to keep it rather casual and finished it off with some military boots to match the 'Girl Army' trend. With the dress and jacket being really thin - I can feel comfortable moving around without getting hot.

This outfit is perfect for a shopping trip. Even though you might be indoors for most of the day, you don't want to put on a heavy weight jacket or something thats really insulated. Keep it casual with high waisted jeans, basic tee and your go-to white trainers. I find this combo also perfect for dog walks, museum trips and a good old lunch date. You can even wear the jacket over your shoulder too for an ultra chic look. The key to this outfit is to mix casual pieces with a lighter outerwear option which is great for on the go.

For my last outfit of course I had to finish it off with an all black one. I opted for my culottes, turtle neck top and super comfy trainers. This is perfect for school and is easy to put together in less than 5 minutes! This jacket is perfect to have in your back to school wardrobe for sure, you can dress it up or down and layer scarves on top if the weather gets colder.

Nikki heels

These are my favourite heels from Public Desire. I've worn them so much I actually have them in khaki and nude! They go with everything and are my go-to pair of heels for occasions. I've also added links to other colours down below too!

So for LFW day 2, I went for something super casual during the day! All of my wardrobe staples paired together.

I've also been obsessed with this clutch as it fits in everything and the design is so beautiful so had to take it out again!

Kicked off my LFW with an all black outfit by my favourite designer - Alexander Wang! I've been saving to show you guys these pieces and wanted to wear them for the first time at fashion week! These are my absolute favourite pieces that I own by him at the moment and I was even lucky enough to attend his store opening party and go to his after party with him! Yes - I fan girl so hard but didn't get a photo with the man himself as my anxiety got the best of me and could not move!

Thanks to ELLE UK for capturing my outfit!

My make up storage!

Glamour Living make up cube


So as you guys may have seen on my instagram and snapchat, I've been obsessed with my new make up storage! I've waited years for a Kim K inspired make up cube and I finally found a great company that does them! I spent my afternoon organising my make up and for someone who was never into 'beauty' I'm starting to get more enjoyment out of it and wanted some place to keep my make up tidy. With out this cube before - my make up was all over the floor and in the bathroom. This beautiful cube is from Glamour Living. A company actually based in the UK! Everything is handmade here and the quality is insane!

On the site there are 3 choices of sizes to accommodate how much make up you have. I know I didn't have as much as a usual beauty blogger but I decided to go for the biggest size so that I would have space to fill it up over the next few years. When it arrived it came in a huge ass box and I thought that I wasn't going to be able to fit it in my room but thank god it was just padded up! With these vibes being made of acrylic Plexiglass, you have to be extra careful when unwrapping it and placing on the surface. I treated this cube like it was my child and did not want anyone to touch it besides myself - starting to be a crazy make up lady now.  I just love how classic, minimal and organised everything is! It also comes with dividers as you can see above which makes life so much easier. I've actually just ordered more dividers to separate more items in the draws too.

I've also got the brush holder - which I've turned half into what it's actually meant to be for and the other half I'm storing all my lip liners in. I thought it was a pretty good idea as I didn't have as much brushes as I though. Also the same for my make up collection. By organising everything I thought I had way more but surprising myself I've only filled up about 1/3 of the cube! This excites me though - I've been buying more make up to fill in and play around with so look out for a beauty haul coming soon!

So if you are looking for a minimal way to store all of your beauty bits (maybe even jewellery too) then definitely check out Glamour Living! Other than cubes there are also perfume trays and lipstick storage! Also get 10% off with my code 'YNGLAM' at check out! No expiry date!

Disclaimer - This post was not sponsored by Glamour Living but they were so lovely & provided me with a discount code to purchase the cube!

The Canadian tux

H&M Denim jacket (similar here) | Topshop girlfriend jeans | COS t shirt | EGO sandals


I'm a sucker for the Canadian tux that I have to find more ways to style it right! One of my fave combos is a plain tee and a complimenting colour footwear. Also a shade lighter denim jacket or top half then a slightly darker bottom half. Keep my make up clean and minimal and hair the same!

Topshop boutique wish list


Been browsing Topshop like crazy lately & I'm just in love with their boutique collection as always. I thought I would put out another wish list! I'll definitely be picking up some of these pieces for sure and maybe I'll even get some in time for LFW! The pieces that I picked out are great for casual days but also great for transitioning into the evening and even A/W!

Autumn Berry

Topshop coat | Zara t shirt | Nixon watch | NYX Matte lip cream in 'Monte Carlo'


With the Autumn weather coming in to play, I can finally rock my coats I've been piling up since the summer! This is my latest piece and I am in love! Initially on the site it's a stone colour but when it arrived it turned out to be a slight mauve. I didn't mind as it's a beautiful piece!

Also this mauve colour goes so well with the darker maroon! I've added the shade in with the t shirt and the lips. Perfect little combo!
