Checked coat

 Checked coat 

So were nearing the end of 2016, and I've succumb to dislike the barrage of NYE outfit posts hovering around the Internet. Glitter and sparkles - sure are a great thing! But I don't need a hundred different women telling me douse myself in rainbow glitter. So today I bring you a breather, a reflective post and one hell of a cute checked coat.

This coat is extremely dreamy on a winters day, in a pale blue check this coat is perfect for the winter season. It was Paris AW16 fashion week that brought back the check this year, also seen in Victoria Beckhams Autumn fashion show where dominant check was distinguishable upon many of the outfits. 

The beret, my personal love affair piece for this season has made another resurgence in this blog post. Yes I must own one in every colour now, but I'm counting that as a benefit. This grey one is actually one of the most versatile. Grey is the colour most people deem to not match anything but in fact the complete opposite. I find grey works best for my skin tone with blues, pinks and yellows.  

 The only thing I'm unhappy about with this coat is it's lack of pockets. Not a shock, considering every woman's apparel piece seems to never have actual functional requirements. Nevertheless I still adore its pattern so I guess I can overlook that hindrance.

The slip dress

The slip dress 

The slip dress is becoming one of my new favourite things purely for the reason that I can layer them so easily and most are actually quite cheap. This 90's trend has made a come back onto the high street towards the end of this year along with other 90's staple pieces for instance the overalls, hooped earrings and who could forget those over sized denim jackets. The 90's revival is what I've based this outfit on today, my slip dress is layered over a short sleeved chifon blouse. This particular slip dress provides the only colour to the outfit seen readily on many of 90's outfits. Keeping colours minimal to focus all attention onto one piece of clothing. 

The beret is not a new found obsession for me, seen in an earlier blog post here  and worn numerous times by myself. I adore this shape and style, seen on Cher in clueless, Rachael in friends and even Cindy Crawford gracing the red carpet in the mid 90's . The era loved this staple piece.

Christmas party outfits ideas 2016 with Herdemeanor

Christmas party outfits ideas 2016 with Herdemeanor

(Click image to shop product)

I'm back home for the holidays, and ready to get into the festive mode! Tree has gone up today, and my first Christmas party is tonight. So naturally I'm tired but can't wait to see all my friends again and get back on top of my blogging game. 

Struggling for a Christmas part outfit/outfits is the bane of the season but herdemeanorfashion has made it easier for me, for this years do. With a growing following of wearers and inspired styling from catwalk collections and celebrities, herdemeanorfashion promises to be a stylish platform for the latest clothing. Stocked in misguided, and a cut I was familiar with I couldn't wait to try on the dress I had selected. 

I selected the Lisa wrap dress in mocha/nude, it is knee length at the front and slightly longer towards the back with a wrap slit side. The three quarter length sleeve accentuates and narrows ones waist which will probably be extremely helpful this time of year with all the Christmas food haha. I would say this is more evening attire dress and perfect for a Christmas party, or possibly work's do. 

Here's some other top picks for the Christmas party season from their website,
