Outfit: Emerald Jumper and Cropped Jeans

Jumper: Y.A.S at Coggles
Jeans: Weekday 
Shoes: Topshop

When it comes to colours, I definitely play it safe and tend to go for those neutral shades - black, grey, camel, navy or white - but every now and then I like to inject something a bit different into my look. Granted, this jumper isn't exactly eccentric but that rich jewel tone is a gorgeous alternative to my usual choices. 

For a casual look, I've been wearing it with my favourite cropped Weekday jeans (do you ever buy something and wonder how you got dressed without them before? Well, these jeans have that status for me) and new Topshop shoes. Seriously, these shoes are amazing - they're so comfy, go with everything, and really lift an outfit.

Lust of the Week: Just Female Belted Dress

At the moment I'm really loving those pieces that are essentially smartened-up pyjamas and lounge wear; the long dressing gown-inspired coat, the slouchy trousers with matching shirt, or the oversized maxi dress that isn't too far off something your grandma might wear. 

This belted dress from Just Female is the prime example; its shape is that of a belted kimono but the silky, tailored fabric makes it appropriate for times other than a Sunday morning.

The Sunday Pamper Session

Jumper: Zara
Mug: HAY c/o Amara

There's nothing I love better than a Sunday with absolutely no plans; getting up late, having a lazy breakfast with the Sunday papers and a much-needed pamper session. My current skincare obsession comes from Mio - the 'fit' skincare range designed to firm, moisturise, banish cellulite, and everything in between. Fortunately for my sensitive skin, too, the products are free from all the rubbish and chemicals found in most.

Recently, I've been using the Liquid Yoga to wind down - pop it in a warm bath and it does exactly what it says on the tin; it's instantly calming and relaxing. Before getting in the bath (or shower), I use the Double Buff exfoliator. It goes on dry skin which isn't something I'm used to but boy does it work - even after the first use my skin was so smooth and silky. Finally, The A Cream comes out. Super moisturising, it also firms and strengthens, making this a product I can't live without.

Once that's done, the rest of my lazy Sunday is spent catching up on blogs or magazines with a good cup of tea or coffee. This gorgeously minimalist cup is from HAY (one of my must-visit shops in Copenhagen - click here to read more) via the equally lovely Amara. If you're as obsessed with interiors as I am (seriously, just look at my Pinterest board) you'll spend hours racking up a wishlist from this site - it's perfect for Christmas gifts too.

Outfit: The Suede Biker Jacket

Jacket: c/o SheIn
Jumper: ASOS (similar)
Jeans: ASOS
Boots: Zara (similar)

The suede biker jacket is probably one of the easiest pieces to wear this season; you can throw it on over a dress or jeans and a jumper and it instantly adds a stylish element to your look - plus, it puts a different spin on the ubiquitous leather biker. This jacket is faux suede but it's still incredibly soft, and at only £20 it's an absolute bargain.

Lust of the Week: Finery London Whitmore Dress

With party season coming up, I'm spending most of time planning what I'm going to wear to various Christmas parties, drinks and dinners. Finding a good outfit isn't as easy as it sounds - especially when you've got to take various dress codes into account. This Finery dress has topped my list for those occasions that are smart but not black tie; I love the simple but interesting shape, and the gorgeous fabric gives it a real luxe feel.
