Okay seriously I feel like it’s been ages since i’ve shot an actual proper outfit post? I’ve been massively slacking on the fashion front, super sorry. Luckily for you i’ve been away behind the scenes picking outfits and killer clothes to wear in New York next week so there’s going to be – if anything – too many outfit posts coming soon! Well I got a couple of amazing pieces from Next of all places recently and as both have made their way into my permanent Autumn loves already, I couldn’t resist getting Lily to grab a few Carnaby St snaps.
I wanna be straight up honest with you – and because I know Next wont mind – I never shop in Next. Never. The only times i’ve ever shopped in Next were because my Mum has a Next card and they do absolutely amazing shoes, so i’ve always picked up shoes via her instore, but otherwise? Nope. I got booked to DJ instore for Next during their Vogue Fashion Night Out a couple of weeks ago, and so I had an amazing afternoon instore on Oxford Street shopping away with one of their PR girls. We had the best afternoon! I actually found *so many* things that I loved, and even more luckily for me, Next let me take them home. Wow. Spoiled.
One of which is this amazing poncho-blanket-wrap thing that doesn’t have sleeves or anything, and is just kinda a big snuggly blanket that you just wrap around yourself. I fell in love with the instant 90s vibe of the baby pink faux fur trim, and the general snuggy-ness of it, and i’m not gonna lie… i’ve barely taken it off the fortnight i’ve owned it. Oops. Homer’s beloved poncho vibes again.
Also how badass are these little snakeskin print boots? Also from Next. I know, I know. Full of surprises me. Just goes to show, don’t judge a book by it’s cover…!
