Printed pants/trousers/leggings/harems are the new black… no, not exactly but they are a big trend moving from summer floral prints to Aztec and snake print for autumn/winter! These Aztec leggings from River Island and Urban Outfitters would look amazing with simple long tee’s, shirts or knits. Although I like these snake print options on jeans I still haven’t let go of my leopard accessories just yet! My fave printed jeans I’ve seen so far are these burnt orange horse print jeans from ASOS, love the colour and print! Printed pants can be a little overwhelming at first but there are smaller print options such as these polka dot trousers with belt from Forever 21. I prefer simple colours and styles making the print the focus of the outfit but with the right look and a whole lot of confidence clashing prints can work!

Being an absolute scarf and snood fiend I thought it was only right that I showed a few of my fave pics of the season available online and on the high street. Scarfs, snoods and shawls are one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe they can dress up any old t-shirt, coat or act as an alternative to wearing one at all (shawls!). I like to have huge black scarf/shawl with me while travelling on trains or planes for when it gets cold which it usually does! River Island have actually come up with the goods this season where you’ll see many of choices are from including this galaxy print scarf which I’m already in love with and will be bought very very soon!Miss Selfridge have a great grey and white skull print scarf a nod to Alexander McQueen no doubt. I also adore this red snood from Topshop it looks so warm and cozy. However as it’s only August there are jersey alternatives which are lightweight but still handy on cold evenings to throw in your bag!
I know many people still are yet to get on board with the snoods but they’re unbelievably comfortable and save you struggling with the right way to tie your scarf…I couldn’t recommend them more!

Friday Finds! So the first friday of every month I will put together a few items I find and like ( and that don’t fit into any other post I’m writing!). It’s a bit of a random selection, so I might theme it next month! There’s quite a few picks from Etsy, honestly I’d only ever heard rumblings about the site before so I’m not claiming I knew of it until now as I’m jumping right on the bandwagon! It has really interesting items that would make amazing gifts and some beautiful jewellery! Love these coffee cozies and this jewellery box! I’ve always been a fan of Cath Kidston stuff and this seems to be a new print featured on this day bag! I seem to have missed the start of the owl obsession with necklaces featuring in every shop, EVER! New Look, however has created this owl bangle which I think is really nice and little bit more original when everyone else is wearing the necklace! I’ve also included this gorgeous (little pricey!) ted baker scarf and a few other finds!
(I will definitely ‘theme’ it next time…)

Ever since Kate Middleton walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey last April lace has truly earned a place in my wardrobe. It’s both feminine and sexy, you may first have thought of Dita Von Teese but now everyone from Emma Stone to Katie Holmes (Yes really and looking fabulous in black lace on the cover of Spanish Vogue) are coveting this trend. Lanvin, Dior and Marc Jacobs all featured lace to name a few with Marc Jacobs opting for coloured lace which the high street has definitely picked up on. Below I’ve featured a few dressy and casual options for lace, particularly fond of the neon midi ASOS skirt and the green lace casual sweater from Zara.
The only rules to lace are to watch the length of dresses, shorts, sleeves etc as shown by Miranda Kerr and Emma Stone here, both sexy yet demure.
