Blue Zara jacket

You've probably gathered from some of my recent posts that I'm a fan of the Mary Portas collection at House of Fraser. The pieces are so versatile, flattering and comfortable – a combination that's often hard to come by. These trousers are no exception, they feel so soft and silky and could easily take you from office to night out. For a smart casual look I'm wearing them with a jacket from Zara, which is almost a perfect colour match, beige jumper (also from Zara) and shoes from TKMaxx.

Every now and then a fashion trend emerges that's so eye-catching you've just got to grab a piece of the action. The pop art prints inspired by the artist Roy Lichtenstein burst onto the fashion scene with the 3.1 Phillip Lim Break Up clutch bag. Since then others have followed suit and there are now more purse-friendly ways of buying into the trend, such as this top I'm wearing from Choies. Wearing it with black jeans really makes the colours stand out while keeping it casual, but I plan on wearing it with a  black pencil skirt – maybe in leather – for a more dressed-up look.

If you're a fan of  pop art prints then you will love the Heart collection by Karla Spetic. The Croatian-born Australian designer has created some fantastic pieces – I've selected a few of my favourites below.

If having comic book images emblazoned across your body is not your cup of tea then you could wear them on your nails instead with these Models Own nail transfers….or maybe try your hand (pun intended) at a DIY manicure.

What do you think of the pop art trend? Do you like it, and if so how will you be wearing it?

Bloggermeetup3

I had such fun today at the Blogger Meet-up in Nottingham which was organised by the lovely Sophia Ford of Tattooed Tea Lady blog.  Sometimes being a blogger can feel a little lonely when you only talk to other bloggers on Twitter so today's event was a fantastic opportunity to meet a group of lovely ladies with a common interest and talk about beauty and fashion. As luck would have it the meet-up coincided with day two of Nottingham's 48 Hours of Fashion. I managed to catch the New Look dancers but unfortunately I wasn't able to stay for the whole day – the small matter of running 13.1 miles in the morning meant I had to curtail my shopping and gossiping and head to Peterborough for the Great Eastern Run. Here's hoping we can all meet up again soon!

Asos fur gilet

When the temperature starts to drop faux fur is a surefire way to keep warm in style. I bought this gilet from Asos last year and I get so many compliments whenever I wear it, it's so gorgeous and soft to the touch. There are plenty of faux fur pieces on the high street right now, particularly in  berry tones which are so popular this season.
