new name, new blog

Banana Republic cardigan / Primark blouse / Skirt from a boutique in London / Sirens booties
H&M purse / Watch from Camden Market (London) / Forever 21 necklace made into a bracelet

Well, same blog really. But after giving it much thought, I decided to change my blog name to 'My Voguish Diaries.' I feel that this name better reflects what this blog has become to me, and where I want to go with it. Hopefully this doesn't cause too much confusion! Be sure to save the URL to !

I love the small, unique details on classic, simple pieces. That's why I fell in love with this blazer. Yes, I also love the colour, but I was sold as soon as I saw these buttons. The blazer itself could have been lime green and I still would have got it for the buttons. I also like the navy/air force feel of it. Now I'm on the hunt for a deep red blazer. What do you guys think about coloured blazers?

Can't go wrong with $10.00 H&M dress! When I saw it I sort of wondered to myself "what the hell is this?" Obviously that wasn't enough to stop me. I'm not sure how it's supposed to be worn, but I just tied it in the back and worked with the bunched look. And with such a soft colour, pops of colour were definitely a must!

lazy saturdays

H&M sweater and bag / Gifted scarf / Urban Behaviour Jeans / Boots from shop in London. 

I love those lazy Saturdays when the only plans are to eat pancakes and catch up on TV shows. I also love when good plans just come up as the day goes. For days like this when it can go from taking the pup to the park to meeting up with friends for lunch, I always pull simple pieces. The easy choice for me was skinny jeans,  comfy boots, and a chunky knit to bear the cold. I'm starting to face the fact that soon I'll be needing my winter coat - *insert sad face here*. 

wild and muted

H&M T-shirt / Skirt from boutique in London / Sirens booties / Jessica Simpson clutch
TopShop bracelet / Necklace from a mall kiosk 

The latest Bloggers Do It Better Challenge is animal prints! Great reason to pull out my orange crocodile skin Jessica Simpson clutch and this little brown snake skin number. I originally thought this top with this skirt and the booties was too much of the same palette, but I actually ended up liking the muted feel to it all.

back to the (new) basics

Forever 21 Blazer / Wildfox T-Shirt via Harvey Nichols / Boyfriends H&M jeans turned into shorts 
Booties from a boutique in London / Necklace - I cannot remember! I think H&M 

Blazers are definitely an easy go-to to finish off an outfit. They can transition an outfit from day to night, and even summer to fall. Exhibit A - T-shirt and shorts, blazer and booties! I'm obsessed with this blazer I got a few weeks back from Forever 21. I love the colour, the lining and the length. I must admit, I've definitely been guilty of wearing it far too many times in the last 3 weeks. Must. Cool. Off... Before I get sick of it!
