elfin' around

I picked up this beaut of a bag in the ASOS Black Friday sale. I'd seen it a few weeks ago and resisted for as long as I could. Thank the fashion gods for Black Friday and the excuse to treat myself. I can't wait to show you the Christmassy outfits I've got planned with this guy!

I've been thinking about Christmas nail art designs for a couple of weeks. Most of the best designs have now been done, and for three years now, November is the month in which I desperately search through hashtags on Instagram, trying to find ideas that haven't already been transferred onto nails.

If you've been here for a while now, you know that I can't resist matching my nails to my outfit. Well, what better opportunity than this?! Although I cut my finger and my topcoat smudged the design, I'm still really happy with how these turned out!

What Christmas nails are you doing this year?

lost and found

dress: vintage, shoes: ASOS, bag: Skinnydip London

Recently, I set myself a challenge to try and wear more things that I already own, rather than simply buying something new whenever I feel like it. It's been pretty tough - there's a massive amount of temptation out there - but I have found a few forgotten gems in the depths of my drawers that surprise me.

festive fashion pt. I

crop: UNIF, jacket: Ashish, skirt: Olympia Le-Tan, shoes: Chiara Ferragni, clutch: Anya Hindmarch

I'm the biggest festive nerd going but I always find it difficult to plan outfits for the party season. Whilst I love gorging on sequins and glitter, I never feel myself when dressed up in heels and posh dresses. My ideal party look is one that blends casual elements with fun, dressy pieces, which can then be mixed and matched with the rest of my wardrobe.

For this outfit, I started with this beautiful skirt, pairing it with a 70s style crop to dress it down. I've then let the accessories do the talking - opting for novelty heels and clutch. The sequinned biker jacket adds the perfect amount of glitter without turning the outfit into a disco ball. This look appeals to my love for quirky pieces, but also feels grown up enough for a New Year party.

You can shop this whole look at Farfetch

pomtastic pom poms

shoes: ASOS

I'm not much of a shoe person. I have flat feet and tendonitis, which makes most shoes painful, and I also have short legs and cankle issues, meaning that dainty shoes usually look hilarious.

I'd been lusting after a pair of pom pom shoes for AGES, but was worried that the ankle strap would become a cankle highlighter, and a pointy shoe would look ridiculous on my size 6 feet. Then these ASOS beauties hopped into my life, and I've never looked back.

Keep reading to see how I've styled these shoes in two different ways...
