Camel+ tobacco.... a Clarks inspired outfit post...

I think sometimes it is all too easy to get caught up in the pretentiousness of fashion and forget that at the end of the day, getting dressed is supposed to be fun. When I bought this dress I wasn't sure what colours to pair it with but this Clarks advert provided me with all the inspiration I could want. Prepare yourself for some very silly photos!


I unfortunately don't have a cute dog to cuddle so I had to make do with a cuddly toy dog from when I was a baby! :P 


 My colour scheme was slightly different but this advert provided me with the inspiration I needed for styling this up... 

Coat: Vintage Dannimac (stolen from my mum!) dress: Mango, belt: New Look, tights: Primark, boots: Carvela from John Lewis, scarf: gift from Mark's parents
This coat is so so cosy and perfect for the Autumn  chill and adds an edge of sophistication to all of my outfits, a classic camel coat is a wardrobe classic!


A better look at the colour of the dress and the look of love reserved for my wonderful co-model, Zac.


I honestly cannot praise these boots enough- they are possibly the most comfortable shoes in my wardrobe and the perfect colour to go with pretty much all of my Autumn outfits...I love it when a plan comes together! 


I have only just noticed the piece of fluff on my dress in these pictures, how annoying! I have been wearing this leopard print belt with everything recently, it has been the perfect accompaniment to all of the rich colours I have been wearing. 


I really loved taking these photos and I hope you find them a bit more interesting than my usual outfit posts :)

Should I make Zac a regular feature?! What has been inspiring you recently?

I love Zac, my dog Sookie sneaks in to loads of my photos.
Those boots look so comfy, I'm looking for a nice black pair of boots with heels and some sensible boots for the snow and rain.
I've tried to cut down my spending on magazines so it's mainly blogs that are inspiring me at the moment x

Haha - what a cute idea! I've bee getting a kick out of those Clark adverts, too. I usually hate a bunch of mismatched browns but you've made them look lovely and tonal here.

I've been loving those Clarks boots too... I keep seeing the ad everywhere.

I love this outfit, it all works so well. But the most important thing is that Zac definitely needs to be featured more I think, maybe in different outfits :P But lovely outfit, plus the boots are gorgeous!
