High Necks & Knee Highs

Is it just me or is that a tongue twister and a half... 

High necks and knee highs... High necks and kn-

I'm getting distracted, but back to business, this clothing combo is currently my go-to outfit as it is just so comfortably chic. There is also something so satisfying about putting on a high neck jumper in the autumn, don't ask me why  - there just it.

My favourite place to shop at the moment is Zara (and you will know that if you've read any of my previous posts... I need to be stopped). I have found some lovely plain high neck jumpers that are neither to thin nor to thick which I ended up purchasing in three colours; camel, navy and grey (no surprise there). I have found them to be so versatile in my wardrobe; on a lazy day I'm wearing them with leggings, on a day where I need to look slightly more presentable I'm wearing them with jeans or a skirt - basically they can be worn with anything and everything. 

As you can probably tell, I'm loving the 'nude' tones at the moment, they seem to be the easiest colour to 'throw' on with absolutely anything for an effortlessly chic look. 

Coat - Zara
Jumper - Zara
Jeans - Topshop
Boots - Stuart Weitzman 
Bag - Balenciaga

In other news its only the 19th of November and yet I already have Christmas songs playing on repeat, who's really complaining though... nobody can object to a little early christmas festivities.

A Lazy Sunday

"If it's not for brunch, I'm not getting out of bed on a Sunday" - Me 

Trust me when I say I love my lazy Sunday's almost as much, if not as much, as I love brunch - which is a lot. It gives me time to take a breather and do all the stuff I can't do during the week... like catching up on some blogs, reading some of my magazines, online browsing (although lets be real, I do that every other day as well), maybe even some online shopping.

Sunday is like the universal 'chill' day, everyone knows that. 

The Unofficial lazy day rules

1. By no means should you be out of bed before 11:00am!!!! This is a vital rule. Vital. 

2. For just this one day pyjamas are - as far we're concerned - the most fashionable thing you own. So keep them on for as long as you possibly can, ideally all day. No pyjamas = no comfort. 

3. Breakfast in bed. 'Nuff said. But seriously, no matter how many crumbs are left in your bed afterwards, it is always worth it for a nice cream cheese bagel in bed. Mmmmmm. 

4. No magazines? Go buy some. Immediately. Hurry. Sunday's are for flicking through magazines upon magazines; Vogue, Elle, Grazia, Harpers Bazaar... I'm all about an 'inspiration Sunday'. 

5. Catch up on a TV series. I'm pretty sure tv series were invented to be watched on one of those lazy Sunday's, honestly. What better day than a Sunday to binge watch a series. I tend to either watch reruns of old gossip girl episodes or when pretty little liars was on I was watching that. (Side note - any good series to watch?) 

6. Once you've totally 'out-seried' yourself it's then time to move on to some classic Sunday films. I'm talking Grease, Ferris Bueller's day off, Footloose, Breakfast at Tiffany's oh and of course a little Disney. 

7. More food in bed. Because doing nothing tends to work up quite an appetite. 

8. Last of all. Take a photo of some magazines spread out on your bed along with your food and a notebook, because did the day really happen if you haven't taken and uploaded a photo to Instagram ??? 

Have a lovely lazy sunday.
