OOTD- Everyday glamour...

Good Evening my lovelies!
 it occurred  to me that I haven't done an everyday outfit post for a while and as I came home for Christmas yesterday I thought I'd take advantage of having family members around me again who don't mind taking photos of my outfits...I have so much new stuff to show you as I went shopping last Friday to blow all my birthday money (it was an amazing day!), so actually everything in this outfit is new. My favourite things though are my gorgeous faux fur coat and wedged boots...

Coat- River Island
Blouse- COW
Cardigan- Primark
Belt- New Look
Scarf- Primark
Leggings- Primark
Wedged boots- New Look
Earrings- Dorothy Perkins
Bracelets- New Look
Ring- Topshop 

I've wanted a faux fur coat for ages, but have never found one that was in my price range and didn't look tacky, however I found this gem in River Island and as it was £30 off it's usual slightly too expensive £80 price tag I just couldn't resist! I love the fluffy almost feather like type of faux fur and the style and fit, although I did have to get a size 6 to make sure it was fitted enough and didn't just make me look like a yeti! I also adore the colour as I think the multi tonal brown is very wearable, so now I can add a bit of glamour to everyday outfits...

These brown suede wedged boots are little gems that I found in New Look, they are usually £30 but with student discount they were only £27. I really wanted a pair of heels that I could wear with everyday outfits, as all I own are platform stilettos for nights out and I'm bored of wearing flats all the time in the day. Wedges and chunky heeled shoe boots are really in fashion at the moment, however lots of the ones I tried before this pair were too clompy and unattractive, so I thought these more dainty ones were perfect as I can wear them on nights out as well. I'm going to wear them Christmas shopping with my friend Lydia on Friday to see how I cope in them all day, as they are a little bit on the high side for lots of walking, but I'm determined to give it a go!


Underneath my coat I was wearing bargain burgundy leggings which I found in Primark for £3, which make such a refreshing change from my black and grey ones. I also had my new white blouse on that I got from the vintage store COW for only £7, which I love because it goes with everything and has nice subtle silky print detailing. It does have quite a boyish fit so I nipped it in at the waist with my staple skinny belt from New Look. The cable knit cardigan and scarf were both Primark bargains, the cardi was £12 and I got it especially  to wear under my fur coat as my coat is quite short with three quarter sleeves, so my long cardigans look silly underneath it. I got the scarf because it was only £3 and I adore silk scarves as they are an easy, cheap way of glamming up any outfit! 


I've been playing around with 1940's inspired hair styles since 'Guys and Dolls' and this is an example of my side parted pinned back look that I really like as it's easy, keeps my hair off my face and looks quite pretty. I'm going to go into my make up in detail in another post, but you can probably tell that it has also been inspired by 'Guys and Dolls', as I have much more dark and defined eyebrows and brighter lips. I'll show you close ups of the earrings later as well, but they were from Dorothy Perkins (they have a 30% off sale at the moment so make sure to check that out!) and I think they are fab because they are nice and dangly with feathers, what more could you want! 

So that's how I try to achieve everyday glamour on a budget!

What do you think of my outfit? Do you have any heels you can wear all day? How do you jazz up your everyday outfits?

Hope your having a good week! 
Love Meg
