December walks and pretty portraits

My mum took these pictures of me last month – not a special outfit as such but just thought I’d share  it since I haven’t been able to get any pics of my outfits this week (Merissa, I need you). And this really sums up what I’m into at the moment: black, leopard print, gold jewellery and my R&B bag, of course.

I was after a simple black coat to match with everything, and Zara of course had the answer. It’s been a great winter coat and I love being able to just throw it on with any outfit, but its blackness definitely made me miss colour, making me prone to wear my red coat quite frequently. The leopard print top is also from Zara, one of my best sale buys this season. Come to think of it, I’ve actually bought very little during the sales.

Nothing like some red hot nails to brighten up an outfit, don’t you think? On a literally brighter note, I just had to share this illustration and do some blatant friend advertising, my super talented friend Rachel De Ste. Croix (I have some very arty friends you see) drew this lovely piece of me and three of my other friends…

And I only just blogged about this outfit a few days ago! Here’s a reminder of it, and that big cheesy grin pretty much sums up how I feel about the picture. You really should check out Rachel’s blog, she’s an amazing fashion/children’s book/all-round illustrator, her work’s even been featured in Amelia’s Magazine latest coffee book, Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration. Can’t wait to get a copy!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
