TOGETHER


As we're nearing the end of November it's about that time I start planning those festive outfits, think about how I'm going to dress my tree and also start the dreaded Christmas shopping. Christmas presents I love to give are presents with a personalisation aspect to them; something that can be monogrammed or engraved..something we've bought and gone the extra mile to personalise for friends and family. 

Jewellery is the perfect gift for friends, family or a loved one. I love jewellery. Whether it be your favourite pair of costume jewellery earrings or an engravable bracelet with sentimental value I really do think there is something out there which caters to everyone. So, in collaboration with Thomas Sabo I'm showing you my favourite pieces from the Together by Thomas Sabo range to give you some inspiration for those Christmas purchases, or just a treat for yourself.


 The Together by Thomas Sabo range features an array of couple jewellery pieces such as the "Together Forever" ring making the perfect gifts for all sorts of special occasion – a wedding anniversary, a birthday, Valentine’s Day – or straight up just to say I love you.  

The collection is also super versatile and ultra-wearable for day-to-day wear which is great if you're looking for something without such a romantic aspect. I wear my jewellery all the time, so knowing the silver hoop earrings or silver mesh watch will also compliment the daily jewels I already own is only a bonus.



 My favourite pieces from the range? The Glam spirit watch combined with the love bridge bracelet.

THE BUCKET BAG TWO WAYS


I've been looking into purchasing a new bag for a while now and up until recently I've been between two; The Simon Miller bucket tote bag and/or the Loewe puzzle bag. I decided to go with the bucket tote bag, I just couldn't get those tortoiseshell handles out of my head! And the fact that the navy will be perfect with my winter wardrobe worn with earthy tones! Plus, heres hoping there may be alittle something Loewe waiting for me under the tree this year (jks).

To show you how much wear I plan to get out of this versatile little bucket I thought I'd style it two ways to give you some inspiraiton if you're toying with the idea of purchasing a little Simon Miller. This style was huge come Summer, and I can't see that changing as we progress ever quickly into Winter, so the addition of the black and navy is a perfect.
 
First port of call, knitwear. This tabacco coloured cardigan is such a gorgeous colour for Winter, it's so rich in tone and it's a great alternative to a cream jumper-which I have many. I'd usually wear this with a blue or black straight leg skinny but how incredible does this outfit look with a pair of camel cigarette pants? These earthy tones really make the bag pop!


Shop The Bucket




 Who co-ordinates her outfit around her new purchase. That would be me. I don't actually own a coloured handbag so the thought of styling a blue bag at first thought would be hard, but to be honest it really isn't-by sticking with earthy colours; black, brown, navy, grey, etc it totally ties the outfit together.

NEW SEASON FOOTWEAR

 
My favourite season? A/W hands down. What could you want more than wrapping up in that new season puffa jacket, the cosiest of cosy knits, an oversized blanket scarf and not to forgot those cold fingers, a pair of buttery leather clothes? Nothing is the answer, I love to layer and that's no secret.


As we approach a new season it's important to switch up our wardrobe. Whether it's investing in a Winter coat or two to see you through until Spring or switching up your footwear in areas of practicality yet fashionable, it's got to be done!

Footwear is an area I tend to struggle with. I find it extremely hard to find the pair of boots. Some say picky, I say particular. I like my ankle boots with a round, toe, a small heel to give that slight bit of height, but enough for a day to day wear and a small enough of design to be on trend yet see me through a couple of Winters! So when I discovered this pair of patent ankle boots from Deichmann, at the grand price of £34.99 I was pretty smug to say the least. Deichmann have just collaborated with Ellie Goulding and the collection couldn't be more of what I'm looking for! With a wide variety of styles ranging from ankle boots, to knee highs to fashion forward platforms there's a style for every occasion, even on a budget.
The lace up ankle boots have a really cool brogue detail to the toe, a high gloss patent finish and a real chunky grip to the sole-exactly what we need with our Winters in the UK.

I really wanted to bring out the detail in these ankle boots so I've kept the outfit fairly minimal. I've paired them with a black knit, with a major oversized sleeve. A pair of pyjama style printed burgundy trousers (which matches the old style Mercedes very well!) I'm also planning on wearing them paired with a midi dress layered under a leather jacket or chunky cardi.

What I'm Wearing

Trousers - & Other Stories
Bag - Mulberry
Sunglasses - Celine
Boots - Deichmann



The style of boots I'm wearing are the lace up boots from Ellie Goulding's star collection. I also bagged these gold buckled detail ankle boots, too.

LOVE COINS


 I love jewellery, it's no secret. I love my jewellery to be statement, yet minimal enough to wear day to day. To be completely honest I hardly ever take my jewels off, so when I find a good piece it stays with me, literally. My latest finds are from Thomas Sabo. Not the new kid on the block, just a brand I've rekindled my love for as of late.

Necklaces are a big fetish of mine. I love to layer different kinds of metals against different chains, lengths and designs. The gold necklace I chose comes in a variety of different metals and looks amazing layered with different pendant. I've got a thing for engraving and personalisation (which is free!) , so these love coins were the perfect addition.

Mixing metals is something I love to do. This mesh bracelet watch is the perfect piece to add into the mix, especially if you're not sure on wearing gold and silver together. With that said, I had to add a hint of silver to compliment the watch, and this silver charm bracelet was the perfect addition. I really love the bracelet alone, but for added personalisation turn to the charm club for a mix of gold and silver charms.

CORDS


Cords, cords, cords. Don't get me wrong jeans are my go-to. But, for a slightly more fashion forward look I've been reaching for cords as of late. Straight leg, wide leg and/or boot cut are my favourites. This pair from Nastygal fit incredible well. I'm not usually a bootcut kind of gal, but for some reason they just work? I'm not sure whether it's the oversized jumper tucked in at the waist, or the buttery leather tan peirce bag I'm sporting? Either way, I'm hooked.

CASTA DIVA LAKE COMO


Lake Como. Hands down the most beautiful, luxurious, scenic and tranquil place I've ever visited. 

Having spent a long October weekend away from a dull and dreary London, and greeted with open arms by idyllic shorelines, warmer climates and beautifully manicured lawns it's safe to say I'm already planning my return come Summer



Staying at the Casta Diva Resort & SPA on a #TBPAbroad trip with The Blogger Programme was pure luxury, boasting lake views for miles, every where I looked was breathtaking - I found myself snapping away at every opportunity!

 The resort consists of nine villas and 73 rooms Located on the east side of Lake Como in the village of Blevio, just outside of Milan Airport. (I'm thinking of taking a pit stop post Fashion Week..)

Staying in one of the Junior Suites was heavenly. The view, the space and not to mention the decor. (Think contemporary furniture featuring gold and platinum colours!) Marble flooring swept the main lobby, up onto a marble staircase which housed the SPA; Indoor heated pool and jacuzzi, Turkish baths, not to mention the 4 SPA Suites inspired by the 4 elements; Fire, Water, Air and Earth.




 The best way to discover Lake Como? By boat. If you want to admire the beauty of Lake Como, its unspoilt landscapes, its banks filled with luxuriant vegetation, sumptuous villas and small villages of rare beauty where tourism, history, art and nature combine harmoniously, the ideal solution is to do it directly from the water.



 The tiny historic town of Bellagio is the perfect way to spend an afternoon with its picturesque views, cobbled lanes filled with small boutiques and arrays of restaurants and bars.

 
The “Orangerie” lake restaurant, as well as the entire dining proposals of the resort, are managed by Resident Chef Massimiliano Mandozzi and his brigade, with important experiences in the most renowned restaurants in Europe and Italy. Catering to both individual guests and events, allowing CastaDiva to offer proposals of “haute cuisine”. The restaurant features a beautiful lake terrace and veranda for “al fresco” meals. Eating here every morning was idyllic! Watching the sun set on the lake terrace watching the sun set wasn't a bad way to spend my evening, either.
