Assortment of Suede Shoes

One thing that I love at the moment are suede shoes. It's my favourite thing to pin on my clothes/accessories boards on Pinterest, amongst other things.  Not to mention that, after a few moments of scrolling through ASOS, Urban Outfitters, The Dreslyn or Revolve Clothing, I'm finding myself searching for suede errythang.

Does anyone else have this problem?

WINTER SUEDE

Winter has well and truly arrived and so has autumn, so it seems. I've just noticed the leaves falling from the trees in the last couple days. The gutters and footpaths are filled with beautiful orange leaves.

I have started to become a little uninspired with my wardrobe as of late. I looked at it and realised one of two things: I can't wear jeans all winter, I just can't and I have an overwhelming amount of summer clothes

So, I took to my trusty Pinterest and searched how I could style some summer gear in a wintery way. While searching, I saw some ideas with suede skirts and remembered I owned this ah-mazing suede skirt from Boohoo.com and viola! I threw on some black opaque tights, a cream sweater and my chelsea boots and I was off! 

Now, just to see what else I could recycle into winter clothes...

Petite Engagement Ring by Grace Lee

I said 'yes!' Well, after many omg's and no's, I said yes.

It's been a week since Adrian proposed to me after a hike up a mountain. I thought I should share the lovely news with you guys! I wasn't expecting it at all, honestly.  
In the morning, I knew we were going hiking. So, I threw on my leggings, a cosy sweater and my sneakers and jumped in the car. I was actually having a pretty lousy morning, my nose was really itchy and I was cold, etc. 

Adrian and I parked the car and were going to bail on the hike but, figured that we were there and we should make the most of it. We had just reached the summit and I was eating chips and soaking up the view, completely oblivious to Adrian panicking and shoving the box in his pocket. 
Adrian got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I couldn't believe it, I said many 'oh my gods', and 'no's' in shock. After realising it wasn't a joke and he was being serious, Adrian put this lovely ring on my finger. 

Walking down the mountain I felt like we were leaving our selves behind. I can't be happier with how my long weekend went and that I now get to call Adrian my fiancĂ©. 

When I saw my ring, I knew it was the one I had told Adrian about years ago. The ring is made by the talented Grace Lee whom I found on Pinterest many moons ago. Her jewellery is so delicate, fine and beautiful and I feel so lucky to be wearing this ring on my finger.

SLIP DRESS

My new obsession is this slip dress.
The moment I saw it in Topshop last weekend, I knew I had to have it. I've worn this out at night with a black pair of heels and a small black bag. I was so comfy, I felt just like I was wearing pyjamas! 

This weekend, I styled this slip with a long sleeve white top and my comfy Puma slides and a black tote. I think this style would look great with a black t-shirt, black leather jacket or denim jacket, with a nice pair of heels or styled with a cool pair of sunglasses

I have seen this slip dress/t-shirt combo online and via my pinterest a fair bit lately and I really love it. The relaxed, I don't care, pyjama style really resonates with me, maybe because I love pyjamas and I don't care... I mean I like relaxing! haha 
I'm already keeping an eye out for a new slip, maybe in a powder pink or black! 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and this post inspires you to wear something a little bit outside your comfort zone. You might realise, like I did, that it actually gives you a little confidence boost! 
Whose complaining!?
