New year love

It's 2016 and with that comes some of my new purchases. Today's post is all about what I am loving in this fresh, new year. It's safe to say I did get a few items in the new year sales which I'm loving. I will also be bringing afew of my Christmas presents through to this post as I still cant get enough of them in 2016.

Stay tuned for another post all about how I style these brand new items but let's get to it with introducing you to them first :). 

These Dune boots I purchased in the sale. They are the perfect height, I didn't want an over the knee boot but just below, and I didn't want a high heel but I knew I wanted a heel so these are just perfection. Butter soft leather all over, these boots are pure comfort but still have a sophisticated feel about them.

This House of Sunny striped top I received before it went on sale to the general public. They have great communication with thier customers and they are very active in the social media world there fore creating a buzz about the brand with bloggers and buyers. I absolutely love the unique shape with the buckle and tie. 

The perfect colour, the perfect shape and  the perfect style. These flats from & Other Stories are just amazing. I absolutely love grey and these flats just work with so many of my outfits because I tend to wear a lot of black, white and grey. 

Isn't this just tooooo pretty. A girls dream with the colours and the shapes. I already owned the Too Faced chocolate palette so when the Bon Bon Palette was released I knew I had to purchase it because these shadows are so pigmented with great staying power. I am definitely not disappointed it's turning out to be a firm favourite within my makeup bag.

This Givenchy clutch bag was a present from my boyfriend for Christmas. I'm in love with it, how thoughtful of him not only to buy such a lovely gift but to know it's exactly my style. 

This is my absolute favourite perfume. My lovely parents topped me up this Christmas with a brand new bottle and now I can stop using it sparingly. I always get lots of compliments when I wear this it really is such a unique scent.

My brother and his girlfriend got me this Nars eyeshadow palette for Christmas. The colours are absolutely lovely, the shades, the pigment and the packaging, it's absolutly dreamy. I love the light and dark shades to create a lovely smokey eye. 

My mum and dad got me this Too Faced bronzer and blush called Soul mates based on Ross and Rachel from friends. I absolutely love it. I don't think I have seen a makeup product look prettier. Im soooo happy with it so a huge thank you to my mum and dad. 

I love this longline waistcoat from Mango. Everything about it from the soft wool. The colour and the shape. It's a firm favourite in my wardrobe at the moment. 

Thanks for reading, stay tuned for a post on styling these beautiful new items coming soon.

Grey love

Grey is one of my favourite colours wheather it be the clothes I wear or the colour I paint my nails. Sometimes an all black outfit can get a little tired-some even if it is a fave of mine. Grey just adds another colour which still keeps it neutral and keeps those bright shades away when you don't feel like looking colourful. I think grey is one of the most chicest colours you can wear, it's my absolute favourite. 

Below are some of my favourite items out there at the moment in stores and online.


Below is a moodboard of an outfit styled around grey. I love a black and grey outfit and this one is a favourite of mine. I love every single item from the metallic loose t shirt to the tailored trousers and the metallic nail polish that would just finish the look. Go to my Instagram (katywatts8) to find out where to get these items from.

I'm a little obsessed with coats and jackets especially a leather jacket. The weather at the moment is wet and cold and it's not looking like it's going to change any time soon so here is my outerwear edit.
 I'm sure everyone has their coat or jacket already for this season, however, if your like me and always looking if not buying them then this is the post for you. 

Browsing the web I have been lusting over all of these jackets. I have even been counting the months of wear I would get out of them and summer does seem like a while a way so maybe one might have to be purchased :). Perhaps one that's a little lighter so it will take me in to the warmer weather.


Here is a moodboard styled around this amazing jacket from Love how well the brown accessories with the matching green works with it. 

Jackets just finish an outfit, whether your going for a put together tailored look, or an edgy leather look, a jacket can complete it so it's important to shop around and pick the right one that works for you :).


Love for a t shirt

One of my favourite items to wear is a slogan t shirt. You can dress it up with a blazer and some leather trousers or skirt, or dress it down with some skinny ripped jeans and a leather jacket. T shirts really do give you so many outfit options and that is why I am bringing  this post to you today. 

A t shirt with a positive slogan on is a fave and at the moment there really are so many of them out there. 

Below are some favourites of mine.

I find these types of t shirts so easy to wear and style. Below is how I would style this simple black one from, with black and gunmetal being the theme with a pop of red from Burberry.
