This coat might possibly be my new favourite possession.
I've always loved mink, but it's so hard to find clothes in the perfect mink colour ... let alone a coat! I find it's always too lilac or too pink, so when I spotted this bad boy I fell a little bit in love. It's not only the colour I adore, the cut & fabric are so perfect. It has a really nice oversized fit, complete with storm flaps and turn up sleeves. It's also made of a really dense scuba-esque fabric, which is light enough to hang nicely but has a good quality weight to it, which I always love in a jacket. It also comes in grey which you can find here ... but lets face it, the mink tops even my beloved grey!
I feel I might live in this coat this season. I can't wait to style it up really casually with washed denim, a baggy tee & boots to (which of course I will share with you).
I get very excited about the festive season (some might argue too excited), which for me starts dead on 1st October. I'm afraid to say, I am one of those annoying people that likes to listen to band aid and drink mulled wine when it's still 22 degrees out and we haven't changed to clocks yet. For some reason, every year this whirl wind of excitement sends me slightly back to my childhood. I get the urge to hand over my black Zara bucket bag, in favour of something that 12 year old me would have been proud to take to the school disco. This year, my yule tide hysteria is presenting itself in bag form. I just can't get enough of embellishment sequins and faux fur.
If the mermaid clutch in the middle has caught your eye, you must check out the rest of London designer Hannah Beth Fincham's mermaid collection. Cara Delivigne is among those in her mermaid club and she also creates hand customized pieces including an insanely beautiful range of leather and denim jackets. You'll thank me for introducing you!
I remember seeing these ribbed jogger style trousers a while back in Zara, then they went out of stock & I really regretted not buying a pair. So the other day when I was doing a naughty bit of online shopping, & I saw they were back in stock, I had to nab a pair. They have several colours, & I very nearly went for grey... but 99.9% of my wardrobe is grey, so I thought i'd push the boat out and go for Navy. Shocking. I am kind of thinking of getting another pair though. They're just so comfy, and I love the high waist and tight ankles. A good Autumn/Winter investment piece I would say!
So it's getting to that time of year again! I love Christmas shopping & all things festive, so I have popped together a little secret santa post for y'all.
These are all things I would absolutely love to receive myself, and i'm always really surprised about the lovely little bits you can get on the high street for under a fiver! How cute is that little H&M pom pom... I think it's something like £2.99 as well!
I hope this gives you some nice little ideas of what to buy your secret santa this year... although I don't think making this post has really done me any favours, as I've pretty much convinced myself that I need nearly all of these things now!
Vintage Jeans | H&M Roll Neck | Topshop Boyfriend Jacket | Topshop boots | Primark Belt
So this is just a quick little OOTD post.
I haven't really brought anything new lately (I'm trying to be good!) so I haven't got anything overly exciting to show you. But I'll you what I am excited for... ROLL NECK SEASON! The best kind of season! I just love a good roll neck. I've never been one for low cut tops, I think if you're small chested then low cut, over sized hanging tops look really cool, but for me I just feel too exposed and not very chic at all... so the higher neck the better for me! I've also come to realise that most of my jeans have rips in, and my knees have been getting chilly. So I have rummaged round and found this vintage pair of jeans that I brought a while ago, for £1.50 may I add!
I've been after a camel coat for ages! But after ordering & returning a few, or finding one I love that's about £1000 (I might be exaggerating slightly), I found this Missguided beauty.
It ticks most of the boxes for me... It's a good length, has tailored shoulders (cocoon coats really don't suit me), it has a nice collar and is the perfect colour.
I must admit I haven't actually brought anything from Missguided for quite a while now, but i'm really impressed with how right they have got this and the quality of it. They're outerwear game is strong!
