sheer shirt: H & M
skirt: H & M
coat: romwe*
rings: jwlry, love hearts and crosses* and market stall
boots: new look
necklace: forever 21
nails: look beauty nail pop in ribbon*

I love with my new coat from Romwe, Its just so classic and easy to wear. It feels really high quality too, and it was pricey, even for Romwe at about $130, obviously mine was gifted, but its definitely worth the price. Im always asked about the quality/sizing of Romwe and there is honestly no way of me being able to tell you. Sometimes its good sometimes it bad. Really hit and miss, but I do think they are a good brand. The coat itself a absolute lint magnet though! Have to get my roller out on it and I've only had it a few days! New boots that I got for Christmas too. I cant normally wear New Look heels as the arch is too high for my feet and it makes them super uncomfortable. However these are really easy to walk in and wear, they are dupes for some Topshop boots as well, Ambush possibly? I dont know Im not to clued up on stuff like this!

  33. Ur hair looks so pretty was that done with the babyliss wand? I've been trying to convince myself that I dont need one but the curl in ur hair is exactly how I want mine to go.

    I tried those boots on and I know exactly what u mean about the arch, they were way too uncomfortable on me, I had them on for like 5 seconds and could not wait to get them off so unfortunately I did have to pay out for the topshop ambush ones :/

    1. yup i did it with my conical wand! do get ittt! its really worth it! i paid like £25 for it but you can get it for around 16 sometimes!

      im glad imnot the one that has problems with new look shoes! they are really high arched and just make my feet hurt! so annoying as I do love their shoes!

  60. Thinking about it, I might have to get the boots as well! I'm ridiculously tall, but the heels on them don't look too high so I might be able to get away with it. Will be keeping an eye out for a similar pair! Definitely looking for the shirt today.
