Game of Thrones Inspired Jewellery

If you’re a big Game of Thrones fan and you’d like to indulge in some retail therapy before the premiere of the new season this week, have I got a post for you! I love giving a subtle nod to some of my favourite shows and fictional characters in my outfits and accessories, so check out my picks for pieces to celebrate some of the most famous noble houses of Westeros!

House Baratheon

Baratheon

Red Hart Earrings, Clogau, £224

Pay homage to House Baratheon by celebrating the noble stag – Clogau also has some beautiful rings and pendants, all crafted from rose pink Welsh gold!

House Tyrell

Tyrell

Grecian Laurel-Leaf Bandeaux, Jennifer Behr, £250

Imagine the wind whipping through a golden field of corn, and the sun beating down on scented rosebeds. Celebrate the bounty of Highgarden with Jennifer Behr’s beautiful headpiece.

House Targaryen

Tessa Metcalfe pigeon grasp

Pigeon Grasp Ring, Tessa Metcalfe, £85

No one needs to know your dragon claws are merely pigeon’s feet. Just like Daenerys, fake it ’til you make it with Tessa Metcalfe’s gloriously quirky pigeon grasp rings!

House Lannister

Lannister

Large Lion Head Pendant, Azuni, £50

Hear me roar! Lannisters are famous for paying their debts, having loads of gold, and being really, really fond of lions. You can tick off at least two of those boxes with this fantastic lion’s head pendant, which also comes in a smaller version.

House Martell

House Martell

Timeless Rose Gold Vermeil Cuff, Links of London, £525

Distil the essence of Sunspear into a piece of jewellery and you’d get this elegant rose gold cuff from Links of London.

House Stark

Stark

Large Snowflake Pendant, Azuni, £50

The famously chilly home of the Starks, Winterfell, lends its icy grace to this delicate snowflake pendant from Azuni. I don’t think it’ll ward off any Boltons, though…

Christmas party daytime look: Nordic print T-shirt and ballet skirt combo

I can’t be the only girl who secretly wants to wear ballet skirts all the time, can I? There’s just something so beautiful and elegant about the soft layers of netting that will make anyone, even a heffalump like me who only barely knows what a pirouette is, feel like a prima ballerina! So I took the plunge and ordered a cheap skirt from eBay, figuring that even if it didn’t suit me, at least it wouldn’t break the bank in the process…

Stag Tee 2 enhanced

I have to say, I think it looks pretty good, even with my pear shape – the length is long enough to make it tolerable for winter, too!

Ballerina skirt detail

I paired it with my new Brat & Suzie Loose Fit Nordic Stag T-Shirt from ASOS (here), which I love, because it’s very festive and comfortable. AND, it’s not another Christmas jumper, but it’s still very seasonal. Now, don’t get me wrong. I LOVE Christmas jumpers. But, as we all know, most of the time, the heating on in people’s houses means it’s actually too hot for a lovely thick jumper, and then what are you supposed to do? My answer: rock a festive T-shirt!

Stag Tee detail

Check out the adorable detailing, with the Rudolph-lookalike, and the Fair Isle style patterns. Love it! The colour is bang on trend, too.

I had to break out my latest favourite shoes, which I’ve been coveting for months now – these beautiful leopard print, pony skin* India flats from French Sole! (* Just so you know, pony skin is not actually made of ponies!)

French Sole Leopard 3

If you had told me last year I’d be buying a pair of animal print shoes, I would have thought you were mad, but somehow the trend has really grown on me – I think it’s all the vintage fashion I’ve been looking at recently! And the red trim is amazing, too!

French Sole Leopard 2

Of course, you know I love me some French Sole, right?! There’s just something about these shoes which are really Christmassy and festive – I guess it’s the implied warmth of the animal print, and the red trim which just screams FESTIVE TIMES ARE HERE!

This kind of look is the sort of thing I think would work really well for an informal, daytime Christmas party – it’s not too dressy, but it is playful and festive. And, you won’t be panting like a dog in your thick knit jumper when someone whacks the heating up!
