Must haves//Blue on black.

So I'm beginning the week with some very exciting news. I've been shortlisted for the Cosmopolitan new fashion blog award! It's amazing to have that sort of feedback and thank you so much to anyone who nominated my blog for the shortlist; the other blogs in my category are stunning - there's definitely some stiff competition! You can vote for me or any of the other shortlisted blogs here.

Anyway, back to this week's must haves. As dreary as it is, at least the weather fits the new AW collections that are filtering into the shops. What you buy today, you can wear tomorrow. I'm not sure why everyone seems so surprised - this is England after all.

A lot of people shun wearing naby blue and black together but I've always had a thing about it. Hopefully this post will open eyes to the fact that you can do it well. What do you think about pairing navy blue with black?


Maje jersey mini dress £210. Proenza Schouler large tote £1660. Pierre Hardy glossed leather & suede ankle boots £645. Lanvin alpacca and wool-blended hat £430.


Monki silky tunic €40. Cambridge Satchel Company navy 15" £110. Topshop tamara velvet laceups £24. Brixton heist beanie £20.

Congratulations on getting nominated! Black and blue is one of my favourite colour combos, especially the winter. Great choices!
