FASHION || The Aviator Jacket Takes Off

Primark highstreet aviator jacket
 Hey Everyone, 
Aviator jackets are essential this Autumn / Winter. So, for this week’s blog, I decided to dedicate it to my new fashion favourites from my favourite high street store - Primark!
I've seen a lot of Aviator jackets online & in stores this season which has all been relatively affordable compared to the designer ones. Most have been under £100, I nearly bought one from River Island that was £90 but when I spotted this near enough identical jacket for a fraction of the price I had to have it. Can you believe this jacket was only £30! 
A black mock-leather aviator jacket with a faux-fur collar, it straddles the boundary between low-key and statement piece nicely. Best of all, it’s pretty much guaranteed not to go out of style for a good while yet. Shearling and leather jackets and faux-fur collars have been popping up everywhere.

I paired this outfit with my bold red statement boots also from Primark for £14! I loved them so much I decided to buy them in black, think they'll be the only boots I wear this season.

FASHION || Autumn Wardrobe - Red Obsession

Hi Everyone, 
It's finally Autumn & I couldn't be happier, this is by far my favourite season of the year. I love to wrap up warm and get cosy. I've put away all my summer clothes away for the year & got out my Winter wardrobe. My A/W17 wardrobe is mainly made up of chunky knits, turtlenecks and faux leather jackets. 

I've decided this year I want to ditch the all-black outfits, which I seemed to wear all of last year & replace my wardrobe essentials with some brighter pieces. 
This weeks collaboration is with LilyLuLu Fashion which is a brand I found through Instagram. I picked a few pieces off their website & this jumper has got to be my favourite as well as the boldest jumper I've ever owned. 

This jumper is in the Bardot frill style but can also be worn as a turtleneck style which then makes the jumper slightly cropped.  I'm a little obsessed with red at the moment hence the matching red earrings but I have seen on Instagram that this style jumper does come in different colours if the red is a little too bold or not your colour.

FASHION | Holiday 2017 Lookbook

Last month I jetted off to Palma Nova for a girly holiday with my best friend for some sea, sun and cocktails. We're both self-employed - Tasha is a hairdresser & I've got my social media consultancy business which means we're both our own boss so we're lucky we can go away whenever we want. We got a last-minute deal, packed our bags and went. 

I was grateful for this holiday as I was in much need of a relaxation but also because I had so many holidays clothes I had yet to wear. So blogger mail and some SS17 sale items I'd picked up. You always get some great bargains in August as retail is making space for all the cosy A/W collections. 

As a lot of people on my Instagram were asking where my holiday clothes were from I decided to put a mini blog post together of some of my favourite outfits I wore away including links and where I bought some pieces from.

LIFESTYLE || Updated Office Tour

Hey Everyone, 
I’ve finally got round to doing an updated office tour. I’ve been putting it off as I’ve still been buying bit and bobs for my office to update the interior. I decided I wanted to add more colour to the room to brighten it up. 

Original Office Tour | HERE |

My main requirement from my office was the need for storage space as well as an ‘instagram friendly’ room. The IKEA KALLAX is the perfect solution. You can display your treasures & hide your clutter. It’s a versatile piece of furniture which you can buy storage boxes to fit into them. I've got my gin collection in one of the squares as well my trainer collection down the left.

I like the fact I can change the layout and accessories whenever I want, The colour palette I’ve gone for is a mixture of white, copper, black, beige and green. By having the background as white and all my furniture is white it makes my coloured accessories pop and is bang on trend this season. I’ve also got a few marble accessories to match my business 'Collab Media' theme.

 I was kindly sent these leaf prints by Alice Accessories who found me on Instagram. I've been after some of these for a while as I wanted to something to fill the white space. Instead of putting them on the wall I decided to just prop them up instead. (mainly because I lack basic DIY skills)

Copper Tray - Tiger 
Artificial plant - IKEA

Frames - The Range (Black) (Brown)
Red Candy Corkboard Map Collaboration
I’ve also collaborated with RedCandy who are interior accessory brand & they've kindly sent me this cork board world map to put on the wall of my office. This is a great way for me to display my favourite travel memories as you can use pins to pin up things like travel tickets and postcards! You could also use this as a notice board, which is essential in an office!  

To win a Cork Map for yourself, head over to my instagram page to find out how! @elliereessRed Candy Corkboard Map Collaboration Gin Collection

A lot of the main details of my office such as paint colour and where my wall paper was from is in my original post, so I won't repeat this information. But one of the new additions to my office is my degree which I've had framed put up on the wall, directly in front of my desk, I always look at it if I'm in need of some motivation or a confidence boost! 

Hope you enjoyed my office tour if you want to know where anything else is from add a comment below.

FASHION || Trendeo Summer Fashion

Hey everyone, 
I think it's safe to say our summer has been pretty crappy this year, it feels like we've only had 1 week of sunny weather. That being said, it's not putting me off getting a full wardrobe of new summer clothes. Luckily I've been on 2 holidays already this summer and have just booked my 3rd for September with my best friend so at least I'll have a chance to wear my SS17 wardrobe. 

Trendeo recently contacted me regarding a collaboration with the brand.  Trendeo is an online fashion brand where you can shop for less, the website has a range of brands from across Europe on one platform which provide you with an extensive range of great quality, stylish fashion products at really competitive prices. Thousands of new lines are added weekly, with discounts of up to 75%!
I decided to pick a piece for my upcoming holiday which I'd be able to wear on the night for a meal etc. I'm really into playsuits & dresses that are either short at the front & long at the back or have a slit leg. I spotted this playsuit which combines the two and is a lot more practical as it's a playsuit rather than a short dress.

Heels - Primark 
Hair Extensions - KoKo Couture 

The playsuit is currently out of stock but I'll keep this blog up to date when it comes back in. Trendeo has also offered a coupon for my followers giving 20% off orders so don't forget to use this when you check out. - ELLIER20
