Coat - River Island (similar)
Jumper - The White Stuff*
Jeans - Topshop
Boots - John Lewis*
Necklace - Primark
Earrings - Debenhams*
Glasses - Rayban
Lips - Glo-Minerals, Willow

I feel that when done right, leopard print is one of the best prints out there (and if done badly, not so much...) This coat is actually a bit of an old sale find, one that I have had for many years and always found its way back into my Winter wardrobe (I even featured it on Tiny Twisst way back here) I love coats with a slight boyfriend, baggy style - extremely great for a casual feel. Coats are also brilliant items to add a bit of print in your life - keep the rest of the outfit simple to help create the ultimate casual look. I paired this with neutral tones, including this beige jumper by The White Stuff, some classic ankle boots and my all time favourite Topshop navy Leigh jeans. As always, I finished it off with a matching lipstick, this little brown shade is from Glo-Minerals and I rather like it!

How do you wear your leopard print?

In aid of Mother's Day, the lovely guys at The White Stuff invited my Mum and I along to their Bluewater store last week to have a little look around. They also kindly gave my Mum some vouchers to spend in the store and paid for us to have a nice lunch out - which, as you can imagine, made a very lovely day. The campaign is called The Bees Knees and centers on why you think your Mum is 'The Bees Knees' - I'm pretty lucky when it comes to both my parents, we're incredibly close and I see them as my best friends. My Mum being no exception, she's my partner in crime in most things, too.

Mum picked out some lovely pieces including a gorgeous tan leather shoulder bag, which I know she'll get loads of wear from, and some lovely casual blouses. The store itself is so pretty, with vintage carpets, lounge areas and a cafe upstairs, as well as a 'serve yourself' cafe which gives all donations to charity. I vlogged my day there, so if you want to see more.. watch it below!

NEW SOUL

 photo fashpill1_zpsdf6a5e3e.jpg  photo fashpill2_zpsa21241c2.jpg  photo fashpill9_zps6f0a3d86.jpg  photo fashpill3A_zps75319c32.jpg  photo fashpill3B_zps7f3f3e15.jpg  photo fashpill4_zps51a2f7de.jpg  photo fashpill5_zpsbf2c9bfe.jpg  photo fashpill6_zpsf852a494.jpg  photo fashpill7_zpsd64bde67.jpg  photo fashpill8_zpsb344ed52.jpg  photo fashpill10_zps25259db1.jpg Dress - Fashion Pills*
Shoes - Missguided*
Bag - Radley*

This dress tugs on every single one of my heart strings (assuming I have more than one?) A perfect lace detailing placed over panelled sections (I still love a cut out) and generous long sleeves, which I always love in a mini-dress - it's the perfect little black dress. I popped on these glam Missguided heels, which aren't the most practical for a 'heelaphobe' like myself, but they add the perfect touch to this dress. I also recently received this beautiful blush Radley bag from the new collection. Usually Radley isn't a brand I would go for, but this recent release has definitely got me re-thinking (check it out, the colours are perfect for Summer) When it popped through my door, my heart skipped a pink, handbag shaped beat. This bag is thr perfect shade of the lightest pink, a structured shape and simple choice of two handles, one long and one short. I'm not sure my heart can take much more! ;)

Speaking of heart, my most recent YouTube video is the first in my Tiny Talk series, and it's all about first date tips! (and dates in general) You can watch it below. Tiny Talk is a collection of videos inwhich I talk about personal issues, tips, advice and so on. It's something I've really wanted to do for a while now, I love helping people and this seems to be my way to be able to! If you have anything you'd like me to chat about, leave it in the comments or email it over!

"Whoever is happy, will make others happy too" - Anne Frank

I find with happiness comes inspiration. When you're at a really good place in your life, flicking through magazines, blogs and social media can inspire you to a whole new level. That's what happened here. Trawling through press releases and various instagram accounts I had the sudden urge to create something a little more 'artistic' for Tiny Twisst. Sure enough the uniformed outfit post may be what I do best, but I love photography and I do sometimes miss being creative with it. So here it is, something a little more 'raw'.

I received this beautiful watch recently from mvmt, the matte strap and simplicity of blue on black creates a stylish, classic watch - something everyone should have atleast one of. Their story, is also an inspiring one, give it a read here. (Use the code tinytwisst at the checkout for $10 off your order too) Thanks to Chris for editing these photos beautifully.
