Outfit: Khaki Duster at CPHFW

Scarf: Pieces
Black Jacket: ASOS
Khaki Jacket: Missguided (similar)
Tunic: COS
Boots: Zara
Bag: Sandqvist

I've just returned from Copenhagen Fashion Week, a trip that has further cemented my love for the city despite the cold and the wind. This was the outfit I wore for our first day there, with pretty much back-to-back shows of By Malene Birger (my favourite), Lovechild 1979, Baum und Pferdgarten and Ganni. 

Going from outdoors to in so much meant layers were the only way forward, pairing two lightweight jackets over a longline tunic, jeans and finishing off with a chunky blanket scarf. Copenhagen, I can't wait to come back.

Outfit: Slit Dress and Culottes

Culottes: Zara
Shoes: Topshop

Anyone who's followed my blog for a while will know that when I'm not in jeans, I practically live in culottes. They're quite possibly the most versatile items of clothing I own - from pairing with a shirt and flats, to heels and crop top, I think I'd be more than happy if these were the only things I wore for the rest of my life. This is one of the combinations I've been wearing recently; I love how the slits in the dress show off what's underneath, making for an easy yet elegant look.

Getting Over the Failed January Detox

Like most people, I try and use January as a bit of a detox month; a time to recharge the batteries, stay off the wine and get ready for the year ahead. It hasn't really happened this year though, what with a house (and city) move right at the beginning of the month, then straight on to LCM, a hectic work schedule and everything in between. Sometimes a girl just needs a glass of Sauvignon. 

Fortunately, the lovely team at Beauty Expert have given me a bit of a hand, teaming up with Mornflake to make sure I take care of myself inside and out. At the beginning of the month I got a hamper full of granola, oats and skincare - including the Complex 27 serum from Cosmetics 27 by ME Skinlab (amazing if your skin is in need of a little healthy lift) and a couple of hair growth products from Grow Gorgeous (I found this a bit too heavy for my hair but if you're after hair growth, this is the brand you need).

My favourite product though, has to be the Ole Henriksen Ultimate Eye Lift Gel. When I'm tired and have had a few late nights (or more likely, long days in the office), my eyes are the first ones to show. This gel instantly cools, soothes and de-puffs, as well as tightening up the skin around the eye area and reducing crow's feet - winner.

Outfit: The Knot Sleeve Dress

Dress: c/o SheIn
Jeans: ASOS
Shoes: Topshop

It was only after I'd uploaded these pictures that I realised how bright white my feet were...I'm hoping it's the light but if that's not a sign I need some sun asap, I don't know what is. 

Anyway, on to the outfit. For me, those perfect everyday pieces are the ones that are simple and easy to just throw on when you're getting ready for work, but also have a small detail that make it look like you've actually made an effort. This dress is a case-in-point. It's a bit short for me so it's become an oversized top in my wardrobe, but I love how the ties at the wrist create an interesting sleeve. 6.30am dressing made easy.

Outfit: A Contemporary Take on the '60s

Blazer: c/o PrettyLittleThing
Dress: c/o PrettyLittleThing
Jeans: ASOS
Sunglasses: ASOS
Heels: c/o PrettyLittleThing

One of the only good things about January has got to be the time when you start seeing the new collections coming in, with the trends we saw at Fashion Week last season emerging in stores. This promise of a new season always excites me and makes me want to try out the different looks, incorporating them into my own style. 

PrettyLittleThing recently challenged me to style one of this season's trends, and I opted for a subtle, contemporary take on the '60s. Seen at the likes of Louis Vuitton and Orla Kiely for SS16, the '60s is the decade to emulate this year. This shift dress with a cut-out neck is the perfect piece for this trend, and when worn with an all-black outfit of belted blazer, cropped mom jeans and lace-up heels, it becomes 2016-appropriate. And cat-eye sunglasses, of course, because where would the '60s have been without them?
