One of my favourite things about cold weather styling is getting to wear all my leather pieces! Perhaps I got a bit overexcited here, because I’ve doubled up in a leather jacket and skirt. Both are real leather pieces, and I personally think it’s worth the investment to pay that little bit extra to get the real thing. Unlike fur, there aren’t the same animal cruelty issues to worry about (unless you are vegan of course, and then you can go for amazing vegan leather alternatives like Matt & Nat’s products), and leather is easy to keep and clean. Plus, it practically lasts forever … though perhaps not, given how much I wear these two pieces! We all have plenty of leather jackets, so why not branch out and go for a bright red one like my one from Mango? It’s the perfect zap of colour for black and white outfits. It looks super hot with blue jeans and a tee too, or over dresses to toughen up your look.

I’d usually wear an outfit like this with a pair of boots, but since it’s the party season I thought I’d go for something a little more playful like these gold strappy heels from Tamaris. How amazing are they! I’ll be completely honest – when I first saw them in the box, I thought they were going to be so uncomfortable. But they’re actually incredibly comfy! I was wandering around the flat, trying them out … and an hour later I was cooking dinner, totally oblivious to the fact I was still wearing them! They look great on their own, but as it’s nippy out I kept my tippy toes warm by wearing them here with some fun socks. You saw my love for the socks-and-heels combo just one post ago. Some people aren’t keen on it, but it’s definitely a favourite style of mine – and for some of you guys too, judging from your comments!

Just so you know, I was sent these heels to take part in Tamaris’ amazing blogger challenge, where one lucky girl will be flown to Berlin fashion week in January to cover the shows as Tamaris’ official reporter! Please keep your fingers crossed for me if you like my outfit 🙂 I’ve never been to Berlin – or to Germany, for that matter – and it’d also be my first international fashion week, so I’d absolutely love to win! Have any of you been to Berlin? I’ve heard it’s a super cool city with the best night life! At least I’ll have my party shoes ready if I do get to go … x
