Bell Sleeves & Boots

We all know I like a bit of alliteration, especially when it means I get to be wearing my favourite knit and my favourite boots of the moment. 

I have a thing for stripes (that's no secret), but I also have a thing for special touches that make a stripe knit a little different from my 100,000 other striped knits - so when I saw this one I just knew there wasn't a chance I couldn't not get it (there's also one with red sleeves that I'm now tempted to get)! I absolutely love the candy pink bell sleeves and think they are just the perfect way to make an outfit a little more fun and on trend. 

With my favourite new knit and my favourite new boots, its was only right that I also wore my favourite new jeans, that you will be seeing very frequently (aka most likely in my next blogpost). 

These jeans have quickly become a staple in my wardrobe and I have to say I haven't stopped wearing them! I've always been one of those people, who if not leaving the house won't wear jeans and will mostly likely be wearing work out leggings or loungewear however these on-trend straight leg jeans have got me wearing them even when I'm at home - yes they're that comfy!

So yes, saying I'm obsessed with these jeans is a little less than an understatement. 

Paired with my striped jumper I love how laid back and easy this outfit is I could easily wear it at home on a chilled out day (most likely with slippers) or how I'm wearing it today with my gorgeous heeled ankle boots that I'm, yes, obsessed with! This outfit is diverse, cool and just one of my favourites of the moment. 

Okay and last of all, lets talk about the boots... I saw these boots online on the Zara website and I just couldn't stop thinking about them and all I did was talk about them to my mum who finally said I should just order them, which I eventually did. And boy am I glad I did, they are the perfect leather ankle boots that every girl needs in her wardrobe especially now in the autumn and winter months! These boots and almost 'sock like' (so very Kanye I have to admit) with their tight fitting and material top. I just love them!!

I love this outfit for the pure easiness of it, do you like this outfit? How would you style these jeans?

Ugh, as if! 

Yes, that is 100% a clueless reference; aka a reference to one of my favourite films ever

Ever since I was little and first watched clueless I have been utterly in love with Cher Horowitz's fashion - you know her infamous plaid miniskirts, knee socks, matching co-ords and yes her faux fur backpack. I think her 90's style mixed with her endearing personality which shines through her funny statements is what makes her one of my fashion icons, and all over movie crush!

When shopping in Zara (because I think we've all realised by now this is all I do) I came across this ridiculously cute skirt, which my cousin and I automatically deemed a "Maija piece" and coincidently is is also a "Cher piece". However I left without it and decided to instead put it on my 'Autumn Wishlist' which you may have seen. My grandma actually got it for me after reading my 'Autumn Wishlist' blog, because she's #cute. 

One of my favourite outfits for autumn is a cute statement skirt worn with a high neck knit and my over the knee boots - it is such an effortless outfit that never fails to look chic and it is always my go to look whilst it is still weather acceptable to get away with skirts before jeans and comfy bottoms become to only thing I'll even think about putting on if I'm leaving the house. 

This skirt is a lovely boucle esk material that feels like such good quailty and the texture adds a nice touch to the outfit, when worn with something simple like I did in this outfit as I paired it with my simple black knit and my over the knee boots that definitely aren't unknown on the blog and are never far away from me during the colder months. 

Today my cousin and I met for a long awaited catchup and because we had an exciting afternoon tea that our aunt and grandma booked for us when we got our exam results. We headed to the Pret-a-Portea at the Berkley that I have actually been to before and it was one of my all time favourite afternoon tea experiences so I definitely didn't complain when I found out I'd be going again. 

Since I last went, they have actually redecorated and I have to say not that it wasn't gorgeous before, but now... now it is what I'd call 'instagram worthy'... yes I'm talking white marble!

We had a lovely time; eating until we were in what some call a 'food coma' and we actually both bought home doggy bags full of cakes we couldnt finish because that is something I've come to realise - always say yes to a doggy bag at afternoon tea's!

Knit - Topshop (last year) Similar
Skirt - Zara

I'd love to know what your go to outfit is for autumn!
