outfit of the day
coat: new look
jumper: monki
longsleeved top (under jumper): primark
gilet: forever 21
leggings: topshop
shoes: H&M
necklace: river island
nails: essie chinchilly

Im not feeling to good today, I have a swollen face (I think I've got an infection or something, gross. Soz!) and Im generally just feeling a bit under the weather. Its so cold here in London today I can hardly feel my fingers, even as I type this I cant feel my hands! Considering I'm inside my flat this is not a good thing! Think I'm going to have to get some gloves suitable to typing! Today I went to a Missguided Press day and saw the lovely Sara, Tonight I sort of invited myself to a event, then got properly invited to, that Kate is doing for some haircare brands.

I'm probably going to wear something else to the event tonight, but I wore this to Missguided press event today. I was running late so threw the easiest and simplest thing on! The coat is my bargain of the whole sale season, down to £10 from a whopping £59.99 (srsly new look?). Sara said it looked like a coat a Grandad would wear! I totally see it as my Grandad used to wear the same, all I need now is a flat cap! Too far? I had to wear a gilet under it purely because I was so cold! It looked kinda bulky but I like that look if it makes sense? I like to have all my layers on top!

  1. This outfit looks seriously comfortable! I loooove the shade of your nails. I had to miss out on the MG press day because all the train times were rubbish and I wouldn't have gotten home till late D: Gutted. You looked good though! Have a good time tonight.

  27. Wow at the coat... £10?! Sale bargains this good always make me feel a bit sorry for the people who paid the full price though, lol! and it makes me think, wow - would New Look REALLY have made like £50 pure profit off that one garment before the sale? It's crazy how much the high street make of us and our hard earned cash!

    Nice look, my cold weather layering never seems to come or looking quite this stylish though, heehee! :-)

  31. Love the jacket. £10 was an absolute bargain, it always gets me thinking when shops are able to reduce stock by so much. New Look especially have sale bargains a few weeks after it begins!

  41. It is freezing at the minute! I'm wearing two pairs of thermal socks and still can't feel my toes owwww. I like all the bulky layers on top (you definitely need them at the minute anyway!), balanced out by the leather leggings. I love the New Look coat, grandads are a good style inspiration source I think!
