Nothing brighter is there than the sun in these cold months?! Who’d have thought I’d have chance to wear sunglasses in the middle of winter in Newcastle!
The sunglasses are from Scarlett of Soho, an amazing new start up company (more about them later!).

Scarlett of Soho are a new glasses/sunglasses company that’s about to change your prescriptive life! A must for any sunglasses or glasses wearing fashion lover. The company send you your choice of around 3 glasses, for you to try on at home, and you simply pick your favourite after, or resend and get some others. There’s no obligation to buy but if you do, it’s really really cheap as they’re an online company, so they’ve no need to hire opticians and rent high street spaces etc.
This is great for all you selfie lovers out there as your mates can help you pick your new eyewear. Check them out here.
The jumper is my failsafe black winter jumper but I love the added grey pattern and faux leather panels. I paired it with a white frilly skirt from Reiss, some sparkly Topshop tights and my old black leather boots from Office.
This gorgeous leather Dr. Martens bag is a new addition to my handbag wardrobe (yes, I really do have one of those!) and it’s so impressive that even the boys in the office were oohing about it. Seriously, they never ooh about anything! You can pick one up for yourself here.

I’m delighted to say that recently I was made an Official Dr. Martens blogger! To celebrate, I thought I’d head out with not one but two Dr. Martens pieces for a quick outfit post on the Newcastle Quayside. Two you say? You cannae wear two Docs on your feet, you say? Ah my friend, this is where their beautiful, beautiful bags come in…
Though it’s winter, the sun was out so it made for a gorgeous day on the banks of the River Tyne. For this outfit post, I thought I’d go all candy colour pink to give a girly edge to my Docs.
Bag: Dr. Martens
Shoes: Dr. Martens
Overall, the outfit was just snuggly. A cosy jumper, thick Topshop tights with a hint of sparkle, and faux-fur lined boots with a pair of toasty earmuffs.
The bag is my new favourite thing. Just such incredible quality and made of stunning leather. I feel like a female Indiana Jones. The bag is unisex and was also snapped up by Paul Smith from Maximo Park, I was told, just the day before. If you love it as much as I do, you can pick it up in their Newcastle store or online here.
Finally, the shoes I picked up at the Newcastle store of Dr. Martens when they first opened and for me, are the cosiest winter boots ever. I throw them on all the time in the cold months as they feel like a big fat hug for your feet. I adore the off-white colour, but the Dr. Martens Serena boot comes in a range of colours.
Hope you like my outfit post and thanks for reading. Ciao for now! x
