Swarovski Stardust Collection and Karen Millen Perforated Clutch!

Today I'm featuring another one of those *quick, I have 30 seconds to get dressed* outfits. I was recently send a bundle of treats from the sparkliest jewellery company of them all, Swarovski. They've just launched their brand new Stardust collection and I couldn't wait to rock my beautiful new Stardust pink double bracelet. Lo and behold...

I wish I had an entire jewellery cupboard full of Swarovski! I'm really hoping Santa will bring me a few different colours in this style because the way it catches the light is just magical. If you're looking to buy someone special a beautiful gift, you can't go wrong with one of these beauties.

Oversized check scarves are becoming an everyday accessory for me, this pretty one from Oasis makes a nice change from the Zara scarves every girl on the planet wears. My unusual perforated clutch is by Karen Millen - I think it's a really cool piece and slightly Sports Lux...Am I right!?

Are you a fan of sparkly jewellery? Do you shop at Swarovski?

AW14 Bexley Barbour Boots at Shoetique!

On Sunday I went for a stroll around Bristol. I love this city in the Autumn, there's just something special about its fallen crunchy leaves and fresh, crisp air. So I've started to pull my fringe back because it's just annoying me, my poor eyebrows have been neglected for over a year so please excuse them! Gah!

Ankle boots are a must-have for this time of year, I was recently sent these rather stylish Bexley Barbour boots from Shoetique and I couldn't wait to take them for a walk. I don't own any other Barbour shoes but these fit true to size and are extremely comfortable. I love the tartan print lining and outer quilted detailing, there's just something rather British about them...Wouldn't you agree?

I definitely believe in investing in decent footwear which will last, I know I'll be able to keep these for years to come. I threw this hella casual outfit on in less than 30 seconds - I always find outfits work better when I don't plan them. I still adore this IL2L dip dye leather jacket, if I didn't have a wedding to pay for I would certainly snap up the black/white version. My jeans are a few years old are by Charley 5.0 (we miss this brand on a daily basis) but Jade, Halle Berry & I love them.
 
Do you own anything from Barbour? Which pair of boots is your favourite?

Bath Fitting Room - #DuoBootTribe Blogger Event!

One of the many perks of being a Bristol fashion blogger, is that I get to attend local blog events and hang out with some of my favourite south west bloggers! A few weeks back I hopped on a train and headed to the #DuoBootTribe event, held at DUO's Bath fitting room

I visited DUO earlier in the year during the Bath in Fashion blogger preview, where I remember drooling over their SS14 footwear. I was excited to head back to the store and discover which boot tribe I belonged to! I had a sneaky suspicion which camp I'd fall into, but had fun browsing their latest AW14 styles while I socialised and sipped on some bubbles. Tasty.

Every DUO shoe is available in 3 different widths which is pretty incredible! I had no idea which width I needed but the extremely helpful DUO girls sized me up and we discovered I needed a narrow boot. In the end I opted for these rawrsome Morton Biker Boots. Perhaps I could've went for something a bit more adventurous but I wanted to pick a style I could wear every day... The Morton boots are so me!

At the end of the night (rather unsurprisingly), the ankle boot was crowned the most popular style with a whooping 60% of us joining the ankle boot tribe. I guess most of us are just Alexa Chung wannabes. ;)

During the night I had a good ole chat with some of my favourite blogger babes, including Megan of The Briar Rose, SJ of Ship-Shape and Bristol Fashion and the always lovely Lorna of Raindrops of Sapphire (pictured above).

Huge thanks to DUO and Octane PR for inviting me, I had an absolute blast and I can't wait to feature my new boots in an outfit post!

Do you own any DUO boots? Which boot tribe do you belong to?

T - Biker babe.
