game of thrones

coat: H&M
skirt: zara
necklace: forever 21
rings: asos & jwlry
nails: models own coral reef

Todays outfit was pretty much a bit of a OH CRAP I'M LATE FOR UNI look. I was going to change for the purposes of the blog, but thats cheating right? I overslept by three hours this morning, and was supposed to be taking my mum and brother to town! I threw on anything I had lurking in my drawers. I wore the scarf and coat combo yesterday out shopping, the jumper on Friday to lounge around in and the skirt was just the first one on top of the pile! Accessorized with whatever jewellery I had lurking in my car and bag! However I quite like it, feels a little throw back 70's but thats cool with me!

I adore this single breasted coat, It really photographs badly compared to the way it looks in real life! It has this really nice ~mens wear~ inspired feel to it which adds so much to outfits. Heres a proper photo of it, to show it does look nice IRL! The proportions just look really off with my normal photo stylee! I really ummed and ahhed over buying it months ago but after seeing it was the only one in my size left I knew it was meant to be! I also have a thing about sheer tights at the moment. I always think they look a bit grannish, but in a good way if that makes sense? I find myself going through pairs and pairs though as I always get them caught on things or rip them when I put them on!

  6. a bbz as always! i have a fur scarf thing like this which goes on jackets too, but the first (and only) time i wore it a woman said i was "disgusting" it was like £10 from H&M, it's not gonna be real fur c'mooonnnn. so now its tucked in a drawer in case i get paint thrown over me.
    so cutes! xo.

  11. Love the coat, it's a great shape and the fur collar is gorgeous. I'm terrible with sheer tights, I don't think mine ever make it to the wash basket as I always end up ripping them by the end of the day. x

  15. though this outfit may have come together as an accident, it's so perfect, i love the colours of your jewelery against that top, and you messing but kept hair - I also love the faux fur - did it come with the coat?

  26. I did that exact thing a few days ago, there was a pair of trousers I loved in the sale and the last pair was my size - clearly fate!
    My granny also told me if you put your tights in freezer before you wear them for the first time it stops them laddering. I tried it - homegirl was telling the truth! x

  27. I wish I could look this good by just casually throwing things on! Especially the way you've done your hair !!! My hair just ends up looking like a birds nest if I don't do anything with it when I'm in a rush :) It would honestly take me ages to get looking this good and even though it wouldn't look as gorgeous as this!
