NEUTRALS



I think I should start this post off appropriately by saying.. HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Perhaps I should have incorporated some the Halloween spirit into my outfit today but instead I opted for what I know best (all I know); neutrals. Needless to say, I will be indulging in all things spooky tonight and going seriously OTT on my costume. Check my Instagram later if you want to know what I am going as!

I have been wearing this coat everyday since I found it in a charity shop last week. I've kept my beady eyes peeled for a camel (well I say camel, its more of a greyish camel. What would you call that colour?) coat for a couple of months now, one of which that would not take a serious pounding on my bank account. So at £12, I can't complain. I actually did a little DIY on it too by removing the inner lining of the sleeves to give it that dressing gown/ coat vibe which I'm oh so digging right now.

This has been appropriately stuck in my head all day. I hope it gets you in the Halloween mood too.

SHOP ME



So on my day off from uni I had the mind set that this would be the time where I really sat down and got started on my intense work load I have to do for my course. Instead, I spent the whole day making a shop for my blog.

I have been signed up for Tictail for a while now, wanting to create a shop for my unwanted clothing items in order to earn a bit'a easy cash. So I finally bit the bullet and made one. Some of which feature in my blogposts and if they have, I've added them to the picture gallery so you can see how they fit me!

If by chance, you do want to buy an item and have any questions or if you're feeling risky and want to haggle with a price, please don't hesitate to tweet me at @bryonydodds or just drop me a comment on a post, I'm a friendly gal and I'm always up for a chinwag even if its nothing to do with this post!

More stuff will be added, so if you like what you see, keep your eyes peeled!

FABULOUSLY FRUMPY

SHEINSIDE T SHIRT// TOPSHOP CULOTTES// PRIMARK SHOES

Culottes, the marmite fashion wear. I have spoken of my love-hate relationship for culottes. I absolutely loathed them when they first came about and now I absolutely love them. Is it weird to say that I feel fabulously frumpy in them? An oxymoron if I ever did see one, but I just cannot get enough of slouchy, comfy wear and these Topshop culottes fit the bill perfectly. Expect to see these on my blogpost's a LOT.

I'm off to see my family for the day in Sheffield. Finally I can be treated to food that isn't a jacket potato or a stir fry (student woes). Have a great saturday!

AUTUMN INSPIRATION



 

It's got to that time again where I need a little bit of a fashion inspiration pick me up. The autumn/ winter colour palettes all over my favourite shops are making me want to squeeze my bank balance dry (must refrain, MUST REFRAIN) and don't even get me started on Alexander Wang for H&M's collection (that 3D print grey sweater; SWOON).

This autumn/ winter I'm feeling the low, messy knotted buns, grey on grey cashmere and oversized chunky roll necks layered over leathered skirts. Oh, and I cannot forgot a pair of lethally pointed kicks. The sharper the point, the better.

BIRTHDAY BOOTZ

GESTUZ FEDORA FROM FLANNELS// TOPSHOP TOP// DIY RIPPED NEXT JEANS// M&S LIMITED EDITION BOOTS// URBAN OUTFITTERS BAG

I have been rather spoiled for my birthday this week by my boyfriend, friends and family (you're the best! No truly, you are). I was desperate to blog these red pointed boots from the M&S Limited Edition Collection that my housemates bought for me. Admittedly, I drunkingly cried with happiness when I opened them (I didn't believe this until I was shown evidence of it the next morning on my housemates Instagram).  They are the brightest and happiest pair of boots I have ever owned and (wait for this) they are SO comfy! Finally, I am blogging about a comfy pair of shoes. Thank you, to the wonderfully generous people who are in my life! You made my birthday the bestest-estest birthday ever -insert love heart kissing emoji-.

DRESS LIKE A MAN. ALWAYS.

H&M COAT// ZARA DENIM SHIRT// COS SCARF// PRIMARK SHOES & TROUSERS

I had a lovely little blogging day with my housemate (and fellow fashion blogger) Libby in Leeds today. I found some fab photo opportunities (such as 'King Henry' the dog; it's almost like he was ready for his close up) and a magazine shop called 'Village' inside the Corn Exchange. The Corn Exchange is one of my favourite places to visit in Leeds; not only is it beautiful inside and out, it is home to some amazing and quirky shops.

Since buying this H&M coat, I haven't been able to take it off. It has that perfect manly oversized feel which makes me want to pair it up with more oversized garments and chunky soled shoes until I well and truly look like a, well.....very small man.
