Style | Forever 21 Blazer & Missguided Playsuit

It's rare that I actually spend time exploring Manchester, which is a shame as I don't live too far from the centre. Recently a really good friend of mine left Manchester to return to her home in Australia. In her short 2 years staying in Manchester she has seen far more than I have my twenty-something years of living here. There's so much to do and I want to make more time to see Manchester. In that same vein, me and my other half did the tourist-y thing and visited , an 87-storey skyscraper in Southwark recently. The views are gorgeous and it was good to gaze at the sights I don't see enough of.

I didn't plan to make a blog post out of my visit, so this is an impromptu outfit post. I've been wearing this Forever 21 Boyfriend Blazer a lot recently as it's so comfy and the playsuit is a Missguided favourite I haven't worn since November. It's a little short on me, but I love the floral detail and white collar so I'm going to make a point of wearing it a lot more this summer.

Haul | Black Friday Missguided Buys

This year on 28th November was the first that 'Black Friday' really had an impact in the UK. Shops everywhere were discounting stock and I was inundated with emails from places I'd forgotten I'd even subscribed to. The bulk of my purchases were from who dropped several deals over 'Black Friday weekend'. I didn't go too crazy with my purchases as I haven't ordered much from Missguided before but I love everything I bought which has slotted into my current wardrobe perfectly.

Dorothie Floral Print Cigarette Trousers (£24.99 £5)
These trousers are so well put together which I wasn't expecting as the photo on the website doesn't do it justice. I would totally pay full price for these and I feel a little like I've robbed Missguided of these by only getting them for a fiver. I've got a slouchy cream jumper that I love wearing these with and I often opt for these black brogues for a more casual look.

Alison Floral Racer Bodycon Dress (£9.99 £5)
I've been hoarding bodycons this season which is a welcome change from wearing swing and shift dresses. I love the floral pattern on this one. The racer style top makes hiding my bra straps a little awkward but I recently got a very simple but neat tool to tuck my bra straps in which  talks about in her video .

Beatrina Contrast Collar Playsuit (£24.99 £5)
I'm in love with tailored pieces and anything monochrome so this playsuit is perfect for me. I found my size of this particular playsuit quite restrictive (length wise) so I opted for a bigger size this time which is the slightest bit too big. It's not noticeable when I accessorise this playsuit with a belt but I may have to give it a little nip and tuck with my sewing machine.

Kimberley Waterfall Coat (£59.99 £35)
I had to spend so long refreshing my internet browser to get this coat as the website kept crashing, presumably as all coats dropped to half price on Black Friday. It feels very luxurious and this coat has been keeping me warm on those icy cold days. I've mostly been pairing this coat with midi dresses and heeled boots but much to my surprise it seems to go with everything.

Carly Crepe Check Playsuit (£24.99 £5)
I've been eyeing up this playsuit for some time and I couldn't quite believe it was going so cheap which is why I snapped it up pretty sharpish. It's too cold now to wear this bare-legged so black tights, the cosy knit I'm wearing here and the lace-up platform boots I'm wearing in this old OOTD are my go-to items to make this item work for this season.

What I Wore | Missguided Skort

I recently bought a sewing machine to make a few minor alterations to some clothes gathering dust in my wardrobe including this emerald green skort from .

I've always felt a little luke warm about the skort (shorts that look like a skirt at the front) but took the plunge and I bought this one almost a year ago. The problem was this skort was way too big around my waist but I figured I could make it work anyway. I was so wrong. The skort sat perfectly on my hips but something just looked off. As a result this skort got lost with all the other clothes that could do with a little needlework. 

I'm pretty rusty with a sewing machine (it's been 10 years since I last used one) but I managed to nip this beauty in at the waist, giving my skort a new lease of life. I'm a lot more excited to wear my skort now and it'll be interesting to mix it up with my autumn/winter pieces. 

Today I wore my skort with a thick knit and loose white shirt for a casual look. I kept my accessories minimal (as usual) opting for a tan belt and a new Olivia Burton watch.
