I like to add a little bling to my Friday work outfit just in case I get invited somewhere fabulous in the evening. (This would be more likely if my friends and I weren’t all in complete agreement that a stuffed crust pizza and a Disney film make up the perfect Friday night! :-D)

Something about the fur lapels and the metallic collar made me feel kind of 70s disco-esque. Which can only be a good thing! 🙂

It was around this time that my phone started going crazy and doing this weird thing that it seems to enjoy:

I take pictures of so much stuff that I like/buy/am inspired by with the intention of blogging about it here, but invariably end up getting distracted/procrastinating/finding something else I want to blog about first. So I thought I’d just bite the bullet and share them already in one long, rambly post. Before earrings become obsolete and no one cares anymore. (Perish the thought!)…

I bought the sheep earrings from Joy as a Christmas present to myself, and am obsessed with how cute they are!

This jumper is from Rad.co – I ordered loads of things from there and definitely want to do a whole post for them!

I went and saw Bryan Adams at The 02 in November. My sister was a massive fan of his growing up so I became one out of necessity! He was amazing, kept it all really simple- just him, his band and some black and white images on a screen behind him. We screamed like teenagers!

I wore: Asos Curve off the shoulder jumper, black M&S treggings, Asda watermelon handbag (that was a gift from my nieces :-D), Office booties and Topshop earrings. The necklace is just some chains that I bought at a craft shop in Monastiraki, held together with a safety pin.

I tried to fwoof my hair up and get an 80s rock chick vibe going… Unfortunately my hair always falls flat after about 10 minutes!

Concert tees are my favourite…

This little tag was on my birthday card from my brother… I think he was trying to tell me something!

And speaking of my birthday…

My friend got me these monstrosities-

PPs

Period panties. FFS. How is this a thing?! My favourite thing about these was that I opened them in front of my father, and his face as he tried to work them out was hilaaarious!

Adorable Oliver Bonas bag, for when you’re feeling a bit Pharrell…

I finally got around to watching the Asprey’s documentary (“Inside Asprey: Luxury by Royal Appointment”, which aired last summer) and thought these torso glasses were really cool. Sorry for the rubbish quality of the photo- it is just a picture of my TV on pause.

Flamingo fever!

There’s a lot of Marks and Spencer in this outfit- the flamingo top and pearls were gifts from my sister for Christmas and my birthday. The Love bracelet was also a gift from M&S a couple of years ago.

The peacock earrings are not from M&S, they were a gift from a friend in Birmingham. I actually just put them on as I liked the green and pink together – the bird theme was inadvertent!

Monsoon jumper- this actually has a detachable feather collar that I removed so as to limit the birdiness!

I love that this top is long enough that the pattern still shows under the jumper. (Although, 2 elderly people in my vicinity commented on the fact that the “youth” never tuck their shirts in!)

You can get away with a boring black outfit with enough bling!

Necklace and big ring: Peacocks

Earrings: Mikey

Small wedding-y type ring and bracelets: gifts from various shops in Athens, I think.

I have made the executive decision that I am not, as yet, too old for pig tails!

(This may be misguided but I don’t care. :-p)

This made me chuckle, I don’t really know why, I just liked it! (Probably the same reason I like the current trend for those really rude and sweary cross-stich embroideries – I like the contrast of something cute, i.e. a teacup with something offensive!) From Sublime.

I love chandeliers, and this one in One Moorgate Place was a nice one.

I’ve been experiencing non-buyer’s remorse ever since seeing this M&S cushion and deciding against it a couple of months ago. I finally bought it! It just makes me smile 🙂

(I swear I’m not a sheep fetishist! :-/ I don’t think…)

Happy Friday everyone, and have a great weekend!

2015 charms

Every year, my parents bring my sisters and I good luck charms for the new year. This year we all got the above bracelets and the little gold pendants with the tassel, both of which I love! In Greece, the New Year’s Day tradition is that each family buys a cake (a Vassilopitta), in which there is hidden a coin or a charm (or sometimes both!) and whoever gets the charm in their slice will have good luck all year. This year my eldest sister won (she always wins…) the pendant on the right.

In other news…..

It’s my birthday today! 😀

I’m at work so am wearing a black top and black treggings (my base for about 90% of my outfits), with my M&S leopard print soft jacket with power shoulders.

Birthday leopard(Ok, they’re not mega power shoulders but it’s my only item of clothing with shoulderpads so I feel very 80s in it!)

LEOPARD

I was wearing emerald green earrings when I left the house this morning…

…but then I met one of my best friends for lunch and now I’m wearing these gorgeous earrings (that happened to match all the other jewellery I’m wearing today perfectly!) instead….

(Both pairs of earrings are from Sublime.)

I have a really good feeling about this year actually (ok, I say that most years but I really mean it this time!), I think 2015 is going to be a good one! 😀

Happy New Year everyone!

Hearty shirt: Marks & Spencer

Love necklace: Peacocks

There’s something about the cartoonish-ness of these hearts that just puts me in a good mood! 🙂 It may have been overkill with the love necklace but hey, you can never have too much love in your life!

Or in your wardrobe. 😉

Happy Friday!

Pjs1

…that these are pyjamas?

My sister bought me these gorgeous PJ bottoms (Rosie Huntington-Whitely for Marks & Spencer) as I have them in pink and they are the comfiest things I have ever owned, but I thought these were way too pretty to wear to sleep! So I have tried to glam them up, in the hope that I can wear them out without anyone realising that they’re PJs. What do you think? Can I get away with it?

Top: Zara

Necklace: Marks & Spencer

Shoes: Marks & Spencer

It would feel like the best life hack ever if I could go out in pyjamas without anyone knowing! 😀

Have a great week!

chartreuse

Why does this always happen to me? I go out in mid-July (one of the hottest days of the year actually) to get a birthday present for my sister, and come home having spent £120 on a snot-coloured winter coat for myself.

Which I love!

😀

It’s from M&S and comes in loads of other gorgeous colours too! I especially love the lilac and pink. I can’t explain why I was drawn to the most controversial colour (it has already received many ‘bleurgh’ faces from the people I’ve shown it to), I just had to have it!

Let’s hope I feel the same way by the time winter rolls around! *

Love,

The Styletterie

 

* Who am I kidding? I live in London, winter will have started by the time I finish this post!

Peplum B2

Top: Marks & Spencer

Necklace: Primark

Shoes: Office

I wore this peplum top to work last week, and then out for drinks after. I always pair it with a biggish necklace, as it’s very high-necked for me and the necklace helps break it up.

(Please excuse me with the black and white photos etc, I have only just got a new phone with these functions and I am still in the “ooh everything looks so pretty in black and white or with one of those filters that makes everything a cool colour” phase!)

(Also, yes, I took a torso selfie whilst on the phone at work. I am that person.)

peplum jacket

This was another way I wore the top a while ago, with my Peacocks pink sparkly necklace, my Warehouse leather jacket and detachable Asos fur collar. Bit more girly/flashy.

Have a great week! 🙂
