Jumper - Primark
Doc Martens Boots - Old

I'll be the first to say that I hate dressing for winter. I hate winter, full stop. I hate that it's dark (although it's been getting a lot brighter and sunnier recently, wahey), I hate the cold, the rain, the bitter wind. I hate having to wrap up in layers of clothes, only to start sweating out on my daily power walk to the station. I hate having to lug a coat around with me. There's a lot of hate for winter. 

I think my hate of having to wear a coat has pushed me into buying a more interesting selection this winter. I got my hands on a big silver bomber (featured in this post), and a bright pink faux fur number (featured in this post). I think my fave has got to be my leopard faux fur coat. I feel like most people have a leopard coat, and I can see why. It became a staple by accident. Honestly, it goes with most things I own. It's warm and I wear it almost everyday. It can be worn on a night out, can be made to look girly, made to look grunge, like in this grunge inspired outfit. So versatile, I'm telling ya now, you'd be a fool not to have one.

Another accidental staple is these extreme ripped skinny jeans from Missguided. I mentioned this in a previous post, but they are honestly the comfiest jeans I have ever worn. They have all the stretch, and paired with some Doc Martens, they add 'grunge' and interest to an otherwise basic outfit.

80s Crimped Hair | Babyliss 210 Crimper Review

First off, thoughts on my new hair? I was getting a bit bored of the blue dip dye. I wanted more of my hair to be blue, but didn't want to get rid of the blonde completely. I've decided to settled for blue ombre hair. I luv it.

So, talking of new hairstyles, I got my paws on the Babyliss Professional 210 crimper. At £20, it's an absolute bargain. It heats up fairly quickly, in about a minute or two. Obviously not the quickest heat up time, but I can't complain. There are ten heat settings to choose from, which to be honest, I'm not really fussed about. I'm the kind of person to stick it on the hottest setting and hope for the best (probably not great for my poor hair), but it's good if you like a choice of settings. 

Crimping is super quick as well. I'm not going to lie to y'all, I hate doing my hair. I love having it curly, but it takes forever, so I don't usually bother. With this baby, I had it all crimped within 15 minutes. Perfect. The plates are really wide, which means you can get a good chunk of hair on the go each time. The crimper only takes 2-3 seconds to work it's magic on each section of hair. I mean, that might be because I have it on the hottest setting, but quicker is always better, am I right?

Let's talk about 80's crimped hair. I'm still a bit unsure. It will be fun for a festival or a night out. 80's fashion is going to be big this year, so it meshes well with that. I think it's because I've never ever had crimped hair before, I just need to get a bit more used to it.

Would you ever crimp your hair?

Black Slip Dress - Motel (Old)
Black Fishnets - Asos

Greetings y'all. I've got another night out outfit idea for ya. As sad as it makes me to say, I'm no longer somebody who goes out on the regs. I get nostalgic over the uni days, getting wrecked multiple times a week. Honestly don't even think I could hack that now, can barely handle one hangover a month these days #whatislife #whoami. I feel as though that is why I've been posting more and more night out outfit ideas. I want to showcase them somewhere, and if I'm not gonna do that being a drunk mess in a club, it's gotta be here. 

 I picked up this black slip dress months and months ago for a night out, and haven't worn it since. That's what I do at the moment. I buy a new outfit for every night out and don't really wear it again. Bad, isn't it? I've decided it's gotta stop, so the black slip is coming back out. I've paired it with some black fishnets to give that stripper-esque look (soz not soz), and everyone's fave copper velvet ankle boots. By far my fave boots right now, and they go perfectly with my much loved leopard faux fur coat. 

I've got a few more night out outfit ideas planned, they are my fave to share on my blog and Instagram at the moment! It's just a bitch shooting them because it's so bloody cold out.
