OOTD: Turn ups and Tinsel

Hello Lovelies!

It's time for another seasonal outfit post today so I can show you a look I've been loving lately which is both preppy and cosy. I also can't get enough of turn ups and tinsel right now (although I'm using tinsel more as a symbol for all things festive!), but then you probably guessed that from the title...

I wore this outfit today as I was mainly just lounging around the house doing some uni work and filming videos, but I find it also works for casual drinks and days out as the jeans and jumper make it warm and comfy, whilst the boots and shirt still keep it dressy. This outfit contains so many of my absolute favourite pieces of clothing such as the Topshop Leigh jeans which are as comfy as jeggings but still look like proper jeans and also the chunky knit jumper that I got to pick out at the Next Fashion Lock In I went to a few weeks ago which I've pretty much lived in since. I never used to turn up my trousers but I always thought Lily looked really cool when she did it so I gave it a go and now I turn up almost everything I wear including leggings and disco pants and love the sort of alternative look it creates, particularly when teamed with socks and boots. These boots actually destroyed my feet the first time I wore them (my poor house mate actually had to give me a piggy back all the way home from uni!), but I think I've broken them in a bit more now which is good as I think they're so beautiful! It also dawned on me today that it's only one month till Christmas, hence the tinsel reference in the title, so to mark the occasion I thought I'd show you the fairy lights we put up in our house today to get in the festive spirit (excuse the huge pile of washing up making a sneaky appearance in the background)...

I needed this chilled out weekend so badly and feel so much better and prepared for the busy times ahead because of it. I got so much blogging stuff done today too so there should be a lot of posts and videos appearing on the Boutique next week! I also have some exciting life news to tell you which is that I've just secured a weeks work experience with the social media team at the Next head office just before Christmas, which I'm super excited about as I think I'd really like to go into social media and PR after I graduate :)

I hope you've all had a good weekend and remember to vote Union J tonight, ohh I'm such a teenage girl sometimes.
Love Meg


  1. Love this look doll. xx

    p.s- loving the mirror

  2. I love the jumper:)!

  3. Social PR is something I really want to do despite currently training to be a teacher, I didn't even really know much about PR before I started uni though. This outfit is so lovely! I love how you have a checked shirt under that jumper to funky it up a bit :) You'll have to tell us all about your work experience when you do it if you can!
