Wish list shades of grey

Hey lovelies you may of noticed I have a bit of a thing for grey, and as it is everywhere I'm guessing I'm probably not the only one. I already own a few grey bits but doesn't stop me lusting after more, I especially love these cute pom pom gloves and the suede style fur collared coat,

ootd// man shirt and leggings with a difference (review)

Hey lovelies today's outfit post features a pair of leggings with a difference. I was recently asked to review these Pertz high performing shape wear leggings* that provide shape and comfort. They claim to limit any 'muffin' top appearance and give a smooth appearance to your legs , make your bottom more pert and limit tummy bulges with their tummy support panel. So of course I had to try them.

I must admit I found these leggings really comfortable and not tight or restricting like some shape wear garments, they have no tight waistband to restrict you and because of the high quality fabric they just seem to smooth everything out and made my tummy look flat.
The fabric has a slight sheen to it which just gives these leggings something a little different from cheap brands, and with these leggings you have no worries about them going thin and see through and being unflattering showing every lump and bump.
I was very impressed with leggings and have worn them on a few occasions including to work, so if you are looking for a quality pair of leggings that will be not only flattering but comfy too, I would recommend giving Pertz a look.
I styled mine with an oversized men's brushed cotton shirt and my new totally awesome asos Pointed Chelsea boots, but you could style these with a big woolly  jumper a sweatshirt or dress them up with a smarter blouse and blazer.

I hope you liked this outfit.

Hey lovelies I have yet another lust list this time from Topshop, It's no good I just need to win the lottery cause there is just so much stuff in the shops that I totally need.

ootd// shades of grey

Hey lovelies today I'm sharing with you the 3rd outfit in my series of OOTD posts, shades of grey featuring my new love my Topshop Joni jeans. I have been lusting after a pair of Joni's for a while, but when I was scrolling through Topshop's website recently and saw these dark grey ones it was love at first sight and I ordered them, there and then. I new I wanted to style them in an all grey outfit as I've really be drawn to grey at the moment and I think is a great alternative to black.

I've put them with a grey oversized tee, a chunky cardigan and woolie scarf, I think they would look lush with a plaid or denim shirt too or with a black oversized jumper and ugg boots.
I am now seriously considering these jeans in another colour as they are just such good quality and fit perfect.

Let me know what you think to this outfit.

You can catch outfits 1 and 2 here and here !

What's in my Asos saved items

Hey lovelies, I am just loving asos right now they have just so many nice things that I really 'NEED', here is what I've got in my saved items ;

Denim shirt £25/Plaid shirt £25/Chelsea boots £40/Stripe sweatshirt £18/Olivia Burton watch £70 

How nice are these boots ? I am totally in love with them, the stripe sweatshirt is just my kinda top as I absolutely adore stripes and although I already own striped tops of course that is not gonna stop me pining for this asos one. I have also been after a plaid shirt for a while and when I saw this one I new it was just perfect I love the colour and the boyfriend fit of it, the same goes for the denim shirt it will just go with literally everything in my wardrobe. As for the watch this has been on my Xmas list since about August as I love the simple style and its rose gold, enough said !!  
I seriously suggest you get yourself on asos and have a little look you wont regret it, well you might when you do some damage to your bank balance but hey ho !!

What are you lusting after at the moment ?

Make a wish its all in the detail + discount code

Hey lovelies, I'm a great believer in the saying "it's all in the detail" and a gorgeous handbag, scarf or necklace can really make an outfit just sing!
So when I discovered Coconut lane's website I was immediately drawn to their lovely jewelry and in particular this silver plated  Make a wish necklace* it's such a dainty but stunning piece and something I couldn't wait to add to my jewelry collection. I pretty much always where silver so this just fitted in with my look and silver jewelry always looks stunning with a black outfit a colour I wear a lot.

Coconut lane not only stock jewelry , there is an array of cute phone covers, greetings cards and prints, so the perfect place to pick up a gift this Christmas for maybe your best friend, sister or mum. I know I have my eye on another gorgeous necklace called moon and stars and maybe one of those cool marble phone cases.
So lucky for you guys I have a little discount code so you can get 20% anything of your choosing, just type in kate20 at the checkout.

So why not have a look let me know if your buy anything I would love to know what you choose,
