My De Beauvoir Diaries - 5 fashion items I am obsessed with

Hey lovely people, I hope you are all doing well. If you follow me over on any of my social media channels then these 5 items will come as no surprise. I have been loving to style these pieces, some of them for years, while some are new obsessions! Do follow along on Instagram as that’s where I tend to share my outfits before anywhere else.


First on my list are oversized black sunglasses, they are a fashion staple, whether it be spring, summer, autumn or winter; they are a necessity. Mainly because they look super stylish, but they can also hide a multitude of sins too. They have saved the general public from the horror of my tired, or hungover no make-up face on several occasions.

Gimme ALL the cool shades please.

You may already read the post from a few weeks ago where I shared the best faux fur vests for under ยฃ100. Yes, I’m still thinking about them, hehe. I have been wearing this ASOS number a lot recently, it is so cosy and warm that’s it’s making me want to invest in another one similar very soon – sorry I picked this up in the sale at the end of last year so it’s no longer available ๐Ÿ™ but I have found some great alternatives below.

I have never been a big dress person, so the jumper dress hasn’t really ever been on my radar until I took part in a accessorise the dress challenge with Next, where I styled a gorgeous block colour jumper dress from day to night using only accessories. I have been loving them ever since and consequently bought this green embroidered dress too. They are so versatile and can be worn in so many different ways, for example, I chose to style this piece over skinny jeans; which I thought worked really well, what do you think?

Now I will hold my hands up and say I have a problem here. I currently own 5 black designer bags and have already asked Santa (that’s code speak for my husband Steve) nicely for a new one for Christmas. Luxury bags may not be to everyones taste, but I adore them and love nothing more than saving up for a new beauty to add to my collection. I do tend to go for black a lot though as I know that they can be worn with almost everything I own, which makes them a safe bet when parting with a small fortune.

Big love to all the lush black designer bags.

Boots, boots, boots, who isn’t obsessed with boots?! I’m especially loving the Chelsea style boots at the moment. This black patent pair go with EVERYTHING, well maybe not my pyjamas, but nearly. They are super comfortable, which makes them great for exploring the city and keeping dry from the rain – they wipe clean so easily too, which is ideal in the current British weather.

Chelsea boots are so classic and will never go out of fashion, definitely worth a purchase, if you ask me.

Which fashion items are you currently obsessed with?
