Friday night last minute outfit! EEK!

I wasn't planning on going out on Friday night... so with a last minute decision on my hands, what was I going to wear? 

Arrghhh with the pressure of having to go out for the next bus I picked out a couple of things but in the end I wore one of my favourite outfits which I know I would enjoy wearing.

I wore a Hobbs NW3 dress in navy blue with my favourite glitter collar plus Topshop 'All mine' boots and Mulberry Lily bag.

Found similar in dark red

Out with my friend Miss E on Friday
Here are a few other times I have enjoyed wearing this combo out, however there is another reason why I love wearing this collar so much. 

I bought it about 3 years ago from H&M I was going to wear it with a jumper...but that didn't happen mainly because it didn't fit round my neck. I started asking family members who I knew were quite handy with needle and thread if they could change the fastening to a bow instead of the hook. 

I then tried to give it away to a few friends but they said no you love it you should keep it, you never know. Little did I know that one day I would never have it off my neck. 

I didn't realise when I was bigger that I was carrying weight around my neck, it's not something you think of when you know you want to lose a few lbs. You look at the obvious things, tummy, legs, face. It's the little things that add up and really make you happy :-)

I wore the combo out when I went out with my mum in March
What outfit do you like wearing when you are going out with friends?

Miss K's August Favourites!

Better late than never! This is the products and things I was loving in August!

Cinema - What IF 
Bit quirky but a typical predictable lovely story I really enjoyed. I love the illustrations used all the way through which made the film a quite unusual. It took me ages to figure out where the film was based as it looked a bit like New York then everyone seemed British.. then as the film went on I finally saw some landmarks and it turned out to be Toronto, Canada so pretty! Might have to get there for a visit one day!

Clinque Moisture Surge
Is your skin feeling a bit dull? Well..start with a Double cleanse with Liz Earle cleanse & Polish and finish with this miracle product. I discovered years ago and totally forgot how amazing it is. I ordered 2 mini tubs from ebay as I needed travel size and I now carry this with me at all times!

Mac eyeshadows
Inspired by Bobbi Brown Surf & Sand I started to look through my makeup bag I felt I already had most of the colours in the pallet and it would be better to just add to my collection instead. So I headed to the Mac counter to top up - 
I bought Amber Lights (gold metallic), Expensive Pink and Bronze frost.

Chinese Sweetcorn Soup!
I have tried so many times to make this soup myself and it just never tastes as it does in a chinese restaurant. I am going to try and find another good recipe, or if you have one please let me know!

Verdura Fritta - side dish @Carluccios
Mix of peppers, aubergine and courgette in a light crispy batter, so yummy as a treat to share with your main course. Now I have ditched starters and puddings its all about enjoying the main event.

Blogger and You Tuber - Gabby (Velvetgh0st)
Aww I just love Gabby, I think I have a soft spot for her as she is a Yorkshire girl but she has recently moved to Brighton to be closer to her fellow blogger Zoella. Zoe now has nearly 6 million followers so if Gabby can have a taste of that community I am sure she will do well.

She does wear her heart on her sleeve and from having a tough time at school and inspiring weight loss she really does deserve some happiness.

After reading comments on her videos she gets a lot of stick on her clothes (wears the same thing too often! Can you believe people complaining on a free you tube channel!?!!) Her glasses, and good for Gabby she says... err I need my glasses and I like them!
GO GABBY! She is one to watch (literally!)

Blazer! Key item #misskautumncapsule

When building my capsule wardrobe I found the key item has to be a good selection of Blazer's.
What is in my Blazer collection?
Topshop Black with Navy Sleeves
Topshop Burgandy 
River Island Blue Tartan 
Zara Yellow
Zara Yellow Bomber
Miss Selfridge Orange/red
M&S Navy 

By investing into a good collection of Blazers means you have a good variety of mix and matching with the other items in your capsule wardrobe.

I try to keep some just for weekends so I look forward to wearing them and some will suit being off duty with jeans and casual skirts than formal items.

Zara Yellow 
M&S Navy
Zara Yellow Bomber
How many blazers do you have in your wardrobe?

Ooo I have also got a new hat (bought before 1st September! lol) to add a bit of something to my capsule wardrobe. Its not quite autumn just yet so I will probably have to wait to wear this out! Only £7 in the Topshop sale!

Introducing Verity! My new Whistles Backpack

Meet Verity, my new backpack from Whistles.

I deliberated over this purchase for a few weeks after spotting it in the Whistles store in Leeds.  I haven't had a backpack since I was at school so I wasn't sure how much I would use it, plus are they cool?

After looking for a less expensive alternative, I gave up and bought Verity. 

Made of beautiful soft grey leather with a large loop handle (so can still use as a regular handbag) plus 2 adjustable straps. 

Super useful small zip pocket on the front hidden by a fold of leather with a magnet closing.

The main zip also folds over and fastens with another magnet. Inside is one zip up pocket to keep valuables. The lining is a lovely beige cotton which means you can see whats inside and its not a black hole. It helps all my accessories are pink! Total Winner!

I think it is going to need some getting used to as it is more effort to get your bag off your back to get your purse out but maybe I will buy less? haha

Inspired by the Cara Delevgine collection for Mulberry it looks like backpacks are here to stay. Blogger Tanya Burr was recently provided with a free Mulberry for a photoshoot and she has been sporting it everywhere she goes since and its worth £1600! Eeek! 100% jealous but even I can't justify that for a Mulberry.
