The blogger from Ramsbottom

Following my previous mention of my love for Henry Holland, my collages have started to become dominated by his catwalk and retail collections. I really admire the fun and youthful feel he brings to every piece, without anything being garish or immature. I also find the range of his pieces make it really approachable for such a wide spectrum, along with his slow but sure takeover of more and more high street shops and brand collaborations (Elegant touch, Debenhams and Pretty Polly to name a few). The use of motifs and slogans make HH work recognizable and unique with ease, if I could own it all I would.

Together in Paris

Coat: Debenhams H! collection, Dress: H&M, Boots: Topshop, Scarf: Jeff & co, Lipstick: Topshop in Inhibition.
As an avid Henry Holland fan and also very fond of Anastasia (the 1997 animated film not the singer ;)), I was much inspired for this 'Once upon a December' outfit. The combination of textures as always makes this a perfect warm wrap up outfit with a difference. The coat is from his H! collection for Debenhams, and with their recent sale it was a bargain. It's (hidden) leather detailing around the collar and pockets gives it a luxury feel and goes well with my Leather Morris boots. I find the on trend green goes wonderfully with neutral browns and light pinks, with a little femininity added by the lace material of the dress. Finished off with a velvet scarf to give a vintage feel.

Tis the jumper season

Jumper: Topshop, Shirt: H&M, Jeans: H&M, Flats: Zara.
Its super miserable weather today, my hair barely stayed in one piece(such a girl I know right?)! But nothing that can't be fixed with a comfy oversized jumper and a trip to the cupcake shop for a catch up with the bestie. And even though this style of flats doesn't really fair well with puddles, they are gorgeously simple and awesome quality. I love to wear them with skinny jeans and a bit of colour from my purple H&M ones is welcomed against the nude and cream. Also loving collars throughout A/W and double denim is a no-brainer.
