Over the knee boots seem to be everywhere and although I really love the look of them they aren’t really a timeless piece, therefore I really didn’t want to invest too much money in them. I picked these up from Public Desire and was actually very impressed with their selection, there were a few I really liked. I decided to go for the Janine Over the Knee Boots as I like the heel but it isn’t too high or thin making these quite comfortable.

I thought these would be quite easy to style but I actually found them to be a little tricky especially as I have rather generous thighs, everything I tried on with them other than trousers ended up looking a little more Pretty Woman than I had hoped but I soon discovered that the trick is to keep it quite loose up top. The colour and shape of this dress may not be to everyones taste but I think it works really well with these boots.

I’ve also been getting lots of wear from my Daniel Wellington watch, they’re the perfect timeless piece, use discount code DWSabrina for 15% off all their watches.

It’s getting a little colder now though so I suspect I’ll be layering up the coats in my next outfit…

Since the weather in London has been surprisingly good for September, I have been resisting the temptation to be boring and put on a pair of jeans and instead have been opting for dresses. 

I recently picked up this utility dress from Topshop which I really love, the colour is perfect and I do love a good shirt dress as I think they’re really versatile all year round. Since it was a day look and I had a lot of walking to do I just teamed the dress with a pair of leopard flat, Daniel Wellington watch, my usual handbag and sunglasses. It’s nothing fancy or groundbreaking but I really like it and I’m really enjoying the weather too! 

The reason I was brave enough to bare my legs in autumn thanks to the Braun Silk-epil 5 wet & dry, as I usually hide my legs as soon as August ends. Braun asked me to take part in the 30 days of switch up your style campaign, which I agreed to as I love the idea of always being outfit ready all year round. I will admit that I usual start to show my legs a little less love in autumn and winter, which is awful as I am always left with only trouser or tights options. 

I started epilating about a month ago now, I get my legs waxed in the summer but it can be very costly and time consuming all year round so I swapped over to epilating and have really been enjoying it. It’s not as painful as I thought it was and I even use it on really short hairs meaning I don’t have to wait too long between epilating sessions. The Silk-epil 5 Wet & Dry can be used in water or out which I love as I find using it in the shower can help open the pores in my skin and really reduce any sort of discomfort. 

Adding the Braun Silk-epil 5 Wet & Dry to my routing has made my morning routine so much easier as I don’t have to worry about shaving my legs but even more exciting is that my legs are now always ready for a great skirt or a beautiful dress, even if I was feeling particularly lazy that morning!

How do you get your legs ready for your favourite dress/skirt?

 It’s hard to believe since it rained to heavily (and was so cold) the whole of yesterday but we actually had some lovely weather here in London on the weekend. I had a few new bits which I was looking forward to wearing and felt that the nice weather would be a great reason to do so.

I’ve been trying to get myself out of jeans and was browsing the internet for some shift dresses that I could wear with tights when I came across this pinafore which caught my attention. The fact that it’s black appealed to me instantly, I like the length of the skirt, especially as it’s getting a little colder and I have nothing like this in my wardrobe. It’s the perfect dress to take you from summer to autumn (which starts tomorrow!) and I’m looking forward to playing around and layering it over jumpers when the weather gets a little colder.

This time I put it over this very pretty and easy to wear Zara T-shirt, it’s nothing too fancy but I think that the pattern is almost lace like and makes it more versatile.

My shoes were also a recent purchase which you may have seen in my recent Primark Haul (link here), I love Primark heels as I find them very comfortable and of course quite inexpensive too. I love these as I’m really into both lace-up and pointy heels- and these are both! I wore this for quite a while this day and they were no different to my previous Primark heels, very comfy but also really pretty- and all for £14! Along with the shoes, my jacket is also Primark (£25)- it’s a great colour, inexpensive and perfect for this type of in-between weather.

My Parfois bag was a holiday purchase and although I usually sling if over my shoulder I instead opted to tuck in the handle and wear it as an oversized clutch. These Quay glasses also pretty much haven’t left my face for the past few months and I’m sad that the summer sun is disappearing away and sooner or later these will have to put away too…

Before heading to Paris I went to see Hannah, a Topshop Personal Shopper at the Oxford Street Store. I wasn’t really too sure what to expect from the experience but ended up loving it. I’ve been struggling to shop recently as I just don’t know what I want so it was great to have a little help as well as to see how Hannah styled everything. I ended up getting a few items but left with ideas as to what I want to buy the rest of the summer, it’s a free experience, with no minimum spend that I would really recommend.

I asked for a denim dress and after trying on a few I choose this one as I liked the mid-wash, the shape and length of the sleeves and I haven’t stopped wearing it. It’s a great easy to wear dress that can be teamed with almost anything, a chunky heel, a gladiator sandal (like here) or in this case my Ugg Espadrilles.

My sunglasses are also a current favourite from Quay and I’ve been loving these Ugg Espadrilles, really comfortable and I love the pattern although they do make a bit of a noise when I walk which is a little annoying when I’m somewhere very quiet.

I’ll be uploading a Topshop Haul onto my channel (subscribe here) later today and sharing more Paris outfit photos over the next few weeks.

I recently had a family party where I need a fairly conservative dress that looked smart but was still quite fun and after looking around numerous stores I found this Oasis floral print dress which I fell in love with. Typically I don’t like florals but I found that the floral pattern was so large it almost became abstract and I love the shape of the dress. It’s a great dress if you usually look for dresses that cover your arms and it’s not too short either. I find this shape to be quite flattering on most people and the material is quite thick which I find to also be more flattering. If you are looking to buy this dress than I would order it quick as it’s currently on sale but they also have lots of other similar shaped dresses.

I teamed it with my Zara nude heels which I got on sale in Portugal a few years back for around £6, probably one of my best ever bargains as they are so versatile and go with everything. I was between these a plain black pair of strappy heels but as it was quite a cold and rainy day these won.

I had also had a spray tan from St Tropez which instantly makes me feel a little bit better and more confident to show a little skin.

Excuse the less than glamorous brick walls but I had to make do with what I had…
