Fashion Friday: Flares - Yay or Nay?

Is anyone else just a little bored of skinny jeans? Or is it just me? Lately I have been thinking about different styles and flares have been springing to mind. Maybe I am feeling nostalgic (I remember some huge ones I had when I was going through my "hippy"stage) but I think they can look really chic and also pretty flattering. If you follow me on Pinterest you may have noticed me pinning a lot of very stylish looking girls with flared jeans, this is what I essentially aim for, of course, I am very aware that I will look nowhere near this cool (but I can dream right?).

Stripy tops and flares = magic combo

This does not mean that my skinny jeans are gonna be thrown out - I'm still a big fan and they will be what I wear for the majority of the time. However, I'm definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for the perfect pair of flared jeans.

What do you think of flares? Yay or nay?

Autumn Picks: Coats under £100

It has taken me a while, but I am no longer in denial about the summer being well and truly over. I'm now embracing the colder months ahead (I wont be by the time we get to January) and looking forward to big jumpers and cosy layers.

I'd thought I would start of the Autumnal posts (a little late) with my favourite picks of coats under £100. I've tried to pick out a few different styles and colours.

Autumn Coats

1.Check Lined Duffel Coat - Oasis || 2. Reefer Jacket - H&M || 3.Sheepskin Lined Parka - Zara || 4. Dogtooth Coat - M&S || 5. Faux Fur Collar Coat - Warehouse || 6. Double Breasted Coat - Zara

I think the best bargain is the Reefer jacket from H&M but I can't resist a bit of fur trim!

Revlon Kiss Me Coral

Now, some may argue that coral is not a very autumnal lipstick shade, but I'm not sure who makes those rules anyway and I say wear whatever colour lipstick you fancy! Revlon Kiss me Coral is a lot more on the orange side of coral than the pink. It's a cream formulation so highly pigmented and slightly glossy. I love it! I like to wear this lipstick either with an orange toned blush or just a bit of bronzer. Personally, I think these colours of lipstick suit my skin tone quite well but would look great on someone a bit more tanned than me as well.

Revlon Kiss Me Coral normally retails at £7.99 but I got mine reduced to £5.99!

I'm keen to try a few more Revlon lipsticks - any recommendations?
