Mango Coat / Asos Scarf / Primark Jeans / Topshop Socks / Next Boots / Michael Kors Watch
If you've been following me on any social media platforms lately then you might be aware I have a favourite new coat and scarf combo for the new year- I've wanted a nice new coat for ages so as soon as boxing day hit I was on those sales faster than you could say 'more mulled wine' and was lucky enough to find this gorgeous shearling number on the Mango website at over half price for £20! At first I was worried I'd resemble Del Boy Trotter (a resemblance my Dad has been more than happy to point out), but after wearing it to work for the past couple of weeks I've actually fallen in love with it. The fur lining makes it super cosy, the neutral colour goes with nearly everything and it can be worn casually as I'm demonstrating in the photos or dressed up as I will demonstrate in a 'get ready with me' soon. Despite finding coat perfection I obviously couldn't stop shopping there as every new coat needs a new scarf to accompany it and I am actually overjoyed that I found this faded tartan beauty on asos. It wasn't in the sale but the cosiness, colour and coat compatibility makes it one amazing purchase. As well as wearing it like a normal person I also like to wrap myself up in it like a burrito and in the Summer it will make a great makeshift picnic blanket...Other items of note in this outfit are my perfect skinny jeans from Primark which are still going strong after a whole year of use and favourite Topshop dolly socks and Next boots combo, not forgetting my beautiful Michael Kors which brings a statement to every outfit. I don't know if you'll be able to tell but this year I'm all about investing in those more classic staple pieces and trying to dress a bit more classy (aka like Vivianna and Lily) and I hope you think I'm off to a good start!
I've been a bit more absent than I'd have liked on the blog this week- I'm actually trying to get into much more of a blogging and vlogging routine but there's just been too much excitement going on. For starters I went for an amazing Covent Garden dinner at Shake Shack last night to meet the lovely Becca Rose- the food (and milkshake) was amazing and Becca was sooo lovely, in fact we ended up having a girly sleepover and now we've got London adventures and exciting collab content lined up so stay tuned for that and make sure your following Becca! I've also had a fun work night out, been given a Benefit event to social project manage and am currently in the process of packing for a weekend in London with the boy- best get back to that actually as I do love to pack everything including the kitchen sink...
