With the announcement that after 16 years Marc Jacobs is set to leave Louis Vuitton leaves one big question; who's going to fill those shoes?

Last weekend I made my first ever visit to Amsterdam, I'd wanted to go for sometime and I wasn't disappointed. It was bitterly cold but the sky's were clear and the sun was shining, and it was the perfect excuse to give my Zara sale purchase trench it's first outing. I love visiting new cities in Autumn as I find the colours so beautiful and picture perfect. I must have walked at least 30 miles but it was great to see the city on foot. I found the centre so endearing, and as indiscreet as the Red Light District is I found it fascinating. I'm sure there is an underlying tone of exploitation but coming from such a prudish nation I found the openness of sexuality quite a liberating concept. As a typical tourist I also included the usual Anne Frank visit, a wonder round the art galleries (Van Gogh was a terrible painter!), pancakes, Waffles and possibly a coffee shop stop (when in Rome) and generally I had great time in a fantastic place the company wasn't bad either.

I'm a bit slow uploading this but this is my outfit from Bank holiday Monday. I had a lovely trip to London, had lunch at Meat Mission and caught up with a very good friend. I ditched my 4 inchers for trainers, so much for comfort the backs of my heels are still crying! These New Balances are defnitely going to take some wearing in, good job these 420's are on trend.

H&M Trend never seems to let me down, when I spotted this incredible sweater I couldn't believe my eyes. For starters it was my size and the only one on the rail, the detail is amazing and most importantly the price tag. This little gem was £39.99, it weighs a tonne and it'll be impossible to wash but I don't care H&M once again you have outdone yourself!

I bought this faux leather skirt a while back and ashamedly I've only managed to get one wear out of it. Last night gave me the perfect opportunity to give it an outing, I went on a rare evening out with a friend and what better colour to pair such a fun skirt. I love bright pink it's a very flattering colour on my skin tone, and as it's a colour that will have an expiration date as I age I like to make the most of being able it wear it now. My bracelets are from a gorgeous little boutique in Peterborough that I happened to pick up on a little shopping trip yesterday. I can't wait to expand my Tahlias Closet collection.

I'm going to sound very British saying this, but why is the weather so rubbish? I love layering as much as the next girl but I'm all layered out, doesn't the sun know I've got newly toned arms to show off? As a nod to the lack of sun I thought I'd take inspiration and wear grey to match the sky. I'm still obsessed with my wedge trainers and I fear they may walk themselves off my feet before I can bare to lay them to rest. On a plus side, lack of warmth means I can grasp a few last wears of my faux leather trousers before they get packed away until autumn.

I am a huge Rocky Horror Fan and last night I was invited last minute to go to the 40th Anniversary of the show. I'm an ex Music Theatre student so there wasn't a chance I'd say no. I'm a bit anti fancy dress but you cannot turn up to this show and not get involved. The show was fantastic and my dragged along other half even enjoyed it. What a great way to spend a Saturday evening and an excellent opportunity for the first outing of my vintage Dior clutch.

I hit the dreaded milestone of 30 in a month so I'm getting some last minute twenties appropriate outfits in before they become too questionable. The crop top is doing the rounds at the moment, mostly with a high waisted bottom half, but I thought I'd go for broke and base my outfit circa early 2000's when hipster jeans and exposed midriffs where all the rage. Go big or go home I guess, but then I was a total chicken and kept my silk cape jacket on all evening, well with age comes the wisdom to know that cold back is not fun! Seems I'm more ready for 30 than I thought.

Everyone needs a casual day every now and again, and with the current wedge trainer trend this is made all the more possible. Love them or hate them they're not going anywhere soon. I've lived in mine the past two months and I'm praying for their longevity so it doesn't get embarrassing!

I love that logo tees are in but the big label ones can only be described as obscene on the price front. There's fakes practically everywhere but I'm not keen on counterfeit goods and I found this Féline version from BATOKO. I'm sure you can guess it's a cheeky take on a Céline tee but not an obvious copy, there are some other fun tees on the site just avoid the obvious copies.
