My 2014 Style Evolution

As we're approaching the end of December, the time has come to evaluate the year. And by 'evaluate the year' I really mean take a look back at some of my outfit posts from 2014. It's always a bit cringe looking back on old photos, but I think it's fun to see how my style has evolved over the year.  


The time I mastered the one leg behind the other pose and developed an obsession for strappy sandals.

Green was my new favourite colour, apparently.

The leaves started to turn and I bought a pair of flared jeans.

Things got cosy in knitwear and a cheeky new coat.

So that's my year in outfit posts! Do you have a favourite? I think my favourite season was summer. It was a hot one and those pleather shorts really saw me through. 

This year I graduated from university, landed myself a new job (which I start next week!), traveled Scandinavia with my brother, relaxed in Portugal with my best friend, attended London Fashion Week both seasons and generally had a lot of fun. At the beginning of the year it wasn't certain that any of those things would happen, but I'm very thankful that they did. I think it's important to have goals and dreams but if there's one thing I've learnt this year it's that life is what happens while you're making other plans. Here's to an amazing 2014 and an even better 2015. Cheers!

The Perfect Christmas Gift

TOPSHOP coat (old)

Since this sparkly mermaid clutch bag of dreams arrived on my doorstep last week I have been carrying it with me absolutely everywhere. It started with a couple of Christmas parties and nights out, but slowly it started coming with me on lunch dates with friends and even a quick trip to the shops now and again. I guess if I can't wear sequins in the day time in December then... when can I?

On the opposite end of the festive accessory spectrum is my new Daniel Wellington watch. Minimal and oh so sophisticated. The black leather strap goes with everything and the white face with rose gold detailing is simply beautiful. A timeless classic that would be perfect for a last minute Christmas present.

(Psssst! Use code 'holidaysarahnunn' at the checkout for 15% off and order with express saver delivery by the 22nd December to get it in time for the big day!) 

I'm off to enjoy a peaceful night before the madness of last minute Christmas shopping commences at work over the next few days. I hope you all have a happy holiday and I can't wait to see what Santa brings you all. ;-)

The Party Season Edit

Things are getting very festive around here. I've done some Christmas shopping, the tree is up and my schedule over the next couple of weeks is jam packed with Christmas parties and festive activities.

Of course I've already started planning my outfits and today I thought I'd share with you a few ideas for different occasions this party season. 

The Work Christmas Party  
Xmas Party 2

The office Christmas party is always a tricky one. You want to dress up and look festive but you also want to look appropriate as you'll be spending the evening with your colleagues... and your boss. 

In my eyes this navy ASOS dress would be perfect as it is ultra sophisticated but still fun. With a masculine jacket thrown over the shoulders, a matching clutch bag (navy and grey is my fave colour combo ever), and some festive finishing touches - et voila! Perfect work party outfit.   

Drinks With the Girls
Xmas Party 4

'Tis the season for glittery mermaid handbags. For a girls night out you can't go wrong with a little black dress. Or a little black jumpsuit in this case. I'll be amping up the festivity with a huge pair of heels and a beautiful statement clutch ready for a lot of cocktails and dancing with my best girlies this Christmas.   

Dinner Date
 Xmas Party 3

Christmas meals out are another unavoidable occasion that seem to take over every weekend throughout December. Whether it's a work meal with your management team, a family get together or a simple dinner date with your significant other. There's no getting away from them.

As you'll probably be sitting at a table all evening it's really only the top half of the outfit that needs to do the talking. Other top tips include avoiding anything too high waisted or tight fitting if you're anything like me and like to indulge in a starter, main course and dessert. This seventies inspired outfit fits the bill pretty well and I'm especially drooling over that black and gold Olivia Burton watch *all the heart eye emojis*.

What is your must have party season staple this year?
