Hey! I'm Sophie, I'm 22 and live in Leicester.

You can usually find me at a gig in the photo pit or shopping for another new outfit which definitely won't fit in my wardrobe.

Enjoy looking around my blog!

AD | Change The Way You Shop With Style Seeker

On Saturday, I was invited to my local shopping centre to take part in an exciting challenge regarding their new Style Seeker section of their app. If you haven't seen the apps that change the way you'll shop, then you're really missing out. Style Seeker allows you to take a photo of somebody's outfit (this can be a live photo or one you have already taken) to see where you can buy the item yourself - or at least a similar item.

When we arrived, each blogger was given a recent trend, I had animal print. We all headed to the Style Seeker pop-up store in Highcross to watch a small fashion show and get our briefs. Once we were all ready, we ran off to a store to find our outfits using the Style Seeker app.

Izzy from A Dose of Chatter tagged along with me and we headed into Debenhams where I had spotted a lovely animal print coat from Red Herring, on a mannequin. The leopard print, wool blend longline coat looks so sophisticated that I knew I could pair it with some beautiful items for the perfect autumn look. You can buy it for £69 which I don't think is that bad for a coat in this season!

It's a super soft material and is double breasted. The coat is lined and comes dow to about the knees (on a shortie like me, it's a little lower). I thought about what to pair this with and found several outfits to go underneath it.

I made the choice to find animal print accessories. When browsing the show section, I came across these Carvela beige 'jagged' low top trainers (£79). The material is a snake print and is teamed with a zip up the outer side of the shoe. I thought these would work really well with all three outfits I had chosen.

The first outfit I chose was this ochre tie back ribbed knitted top from Miss Selfridge (£22), which I paired with my black, lift and shape skinny jeans from New Look (£25.99). The top at the back is rounded and open (which means it's probably best to go for a strapless bra) with a tie up at the base of the neck. I think the mustard colour works really well with the leopard print. It's a great, casual outfit.

I would pair this outfit with this mustard, embossed mini tote bag from Zara (£29.99). It's small but has a load of space through the different compartments. It also sticks to my animal print theme with this crocodile exterior. The bag itself is quite small so will compliment the top without distracting from the animal print coat as well.

The second outfit I chose is definitely my favourite of the three. I found this ochre soft touch funnel neck ribbed jumper from Miss Selfridge (£32) and fell in love. It's got balloon sleeve which I love an this funnel neck - this is the ultimate autumn jumper and I'm considering buying it for real. Again, this colour works really well with the leopard print coat.

Thinking of a way to make this outfit slightly different, I opted for this leather look mini skirt from Topshop (£25). The smooth faux leather looks great with the knitted jumper. I chose to tick in the jumper to show off the zip and popper detail on the skirt. The burgundy colour works so well with the ochre and the leopard print - the outfit would look great with the shoes too!

I chose to pair this outfit with this Carvela wine 'sara clean saddle bag' (£69) which would look amazing with the skirt. The cross body, croc print bag compliments the leopard print coat with the wine colour and the small gold embellishments (clasp and chain). Trust me - I'm considering buying this whole outfit.

This is the perfect Autumn outfit, I reckon. Paired with some brown tights, if the weather is cold, the colours and animal print are sure to draw eyes to you as you walk down the street.

My final outfit gives me proper winter vibes. I chose out this cream striped pointelle ribbed knitted top from Miss Selfridge (I figure I need to buy from them more often now) which is available for £25. I paired it with this red corduroy denim skirt from Topshop (£32). The skirt is super comfy and Izzy also loved it and picked it up for one of her outfits.

I chose this black croc print bag from Zara, to pair with the outfit. I can't find this online, so I'm unsure of the price for it. It matched the black detail on the top and I think it works really well together.

I had a tonne of fun using the Style Seeker app, it's super easy to use and is so good! Izzy managed to snap a photo of one of the models from the first floor of Highcross and it still managed to find similar items. This app is bound to change the way you shop - I'll be using it on some celebrities no doubt.
