You're never fully dressed without a smile.

Green grid...








Dress - Topshop 
Waistcoat - Topshop
Necklace - Moxham 
Boots - River Island 


I've had my eye on this Topshop dress for a while, and thought it had sold out everywhere so was really pleased when I came across one in my size in a last chance to buy section! I'm still wearing my over the knee boots a lot as I want to get as much wear out of them before summer, (as much as I absolutely love summer, these have been my favourite things this winter!) 

Green is a colour I wouldn't normally wear apart from shades of khaki, (and my coat) so its quite refreshing to have a change! I love the check grid print on this dress. I decided to pair it with my new waistcoat as I thought the loose tailoring of this waistcoat was perfect for layering on a slightly colder day, whilst making a casual dress look a bit smarter.

Military Mission...

Military is making a big comeback this season. I'd say there's an element of military uniform on the catwalks each season, (who remembers that ammaaaaazing Balmain collection from SS/10, it is probably one of my most favourite catwalk collections EVER) however, this year it seems a lot more grown up, tailored and luxurious.

Military is an easy trend to take on, as you can just dip into it with accents of khaki, olive and camel colours in your wardrobe, or you can really embrace it and adopt the whole uniform look with utility jackets, belted macs and shirt dresses.

Large pockets and big hardware buttons are a must in this trend.

I bought this military inspired dress from Topshop recently, and wore it last weekend with a black and gold leather belt, chunky black boots, and layers of gold jewellery.

Although the dress is quite plain, I like the little details on it such as the turned up sleeves, and the pocket on the front. I also think for the price of £40 it is good value, as it will see me from now right through to summer when I plan to wear it with tan accessories.








Lots of big buttons, oversized pockets, khaki/nude colour palettes, structured garments, and big belts on the SS/15 Catwalks.



That amazing Balmain collection. SS/10. 





Fabulous Street Style spotted by Warehouse at LFW last month. 

Warehouse have taken on the military movement, and have lots of Uniform inspired pieces in store at the moment. Shop here: http://www.warehouse.co.uk/Utility/dept/fcp-category/list?from=talesofthecity&content=lfw_utility_cta



Net-a-porter have lots of luxury designer 'utility' inspired items that have hit down on the website this week. These are all way out of my price range, but its nice to window shop and see where the high street take their inspirations from! Shop here: www.net-a-porter.com



River Island have adapted the trend and added jungle prints to the mix.
