Burberry Pre-Fall 2014 // Images via Style.com
As I’ve previously mentioned, it takes a lot for me to fall in love with a collection, but here I am again falling for clothes that are beyond my reach, thanks to Christopher Bailey and the Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2014 Collection.
It feels wrong to be focusing on trends for 2014 when I’m still getting over the fact it’s 2013… and we’re in December.* Nevertheless, I am more than willing to wholeheartedly embrace this Burberry collection due to the fact it flirts with many of my favourite fashion-y things: Jaquard, Fur, Green, etc, etc. Jacquard being my main guilty fashion pleasure, largely due to the fact that it’s just sophisticated enough to do day-to-night, but also makes me want to pretend I’m one of the upper class members of a period drama, even though I’m far too clumsy to be regal.
Well done Bailey, making me aim above my station for the 10000th time running.
*The New Year is clearly going to be too much for my poor little mind this year… and not just because I can’t work out what to wear.

When I first hear that the fashion world was slowly coming down off it’s 5 inchers and embracing the world of horizontal feet, it would be an understatement to say I was excited. I’ve been championing the flat shoe for around a year now due to clumsiness,* but the more people start joining me, the less short I’ll feel. My neck is almost aching from looking up at people.
With December approaching (WHAT… 5 DAYS?!), party season is on my mind, and therefore I’m searching for the perfect shoes to get me through. Let me tell you, searching for the perfect flat party shoes is a mission in itself, but you can see my first collage of inspiration above.
How do you guys feel about flat shoes for the party season?
*Two twisted ankles is enough to put you off. I wasn’t even wearing heels at the time.
Anchor Printed Trousers: Malene Birger via Net-A-Porter
Over the past year or so I’ve started wearing trousers around 100% more than I used to,* and a printed trouser never fail to capture my sartorial heart! After finding that my favourite pair are now too big (good for my ego, not for getting dressed), I’m now on the hunt for their replacement, and this pair by Malene Birger have shot straight to the top of my wish list.
*In that, I used to exclusively be a dresses & skirts kinda gal.
Hat & Scarf: Zara A/W 13
Say ‘hello’ to my face! Which is hopefully pale & interesting rather than just, well, pale. After waking up yesterday to my boyfriend declaring that there was snow on the roof* I decided that it was high time I shared my latest winter warmers, AKA two of the 50 million things that I’ve bought from Zara recently. I tell you, Zara Winter Accessories are on FIYAH at the moment.
The hat was a treat from my Mum (HI MUM – THANKS AGAIN), and I can’t tell you how much it amuses me that it has ears. After all, who doesn’t love a novelty head warmer? The scarf was a lunch break purchase,** when I realised that my H&M blanket scarf was slowly deteriorating after years of use.
*I’m slightly skeptical about this.
** FACT: It is extremely dangerous working within 100yards of a Zara.
