call the shots








top: topshop
skirt: primark (old)
boots: topshop alba's (old)
scarf: river island (similar here)
coat: topshop (v. old, sale)
bracelets: black tied*, topshop, turkish market stall

Today's outfit has to be one of my personal favourites. I just like the colours and the patterns and the subtle colour pop of the arm candy! I wore a similar outfit yesterday for my epic food sessions but decided to wear it again as I did really like the outfit. Yes. I wear outfits more than once! I've worn this Topshop jumper so many times since I bought it a few months ago. I just love it! So versatile and easy to wear. I've worn it with disco pants, and over a midi dress and now with that much loved Primark skirt! I rediscovered this cream jacket a few days ago, I'd never actually worn it and it has been sitting in my wardrobe for god knows how long know! It even had the sale tag still on it! This is why I never buy stuff in the sale! I always forget about them! I think I got it over a year ago now but Im sure Topshop will have something similar this year!

I really can't wait to splash out on a few new items one I get paid, I've had my eye on loads of things this month but funds have been so tight (two holidays in such a short ammount of time = money drain!) So I'm excited to pick up some of the things I've had my eye on. Number one on my list at the moment is this jacket from Topshop, I wanted the Zara one but I left it too late and it ended up totally sold out! I also ordered the Night Hawk Boots I mentioned in yesterday's post. I could resist no longer!

  24. This kind of outfit makes me weirdly excited for autumn weather and coats and scarves. Love how this has all come together, big fan of the top especially! That topshop jacket and the night hawk boots are top of my list at the minute too, bit pricey though when I've got final year at uni booo

  61. I'm so gutted, two weeks before the Topshop jacket with leather sleeves came out, i had bought the normal army jacket, because i gave up hope that the Zara one would ever come down to a reasonable price!xx

  63. I ordered that jacket from Topshop after missing out on the Zara one too. Unfortunately it's really cheap looking and so not worth £65 in my opinion. Hoping the Primark one you posted about will be a bit better, or at the very least not I won't mind buying it as the price is much lower.

  64. Really want that jumper! The pattern is gorgeous!

  67. The popularity of designer cheap omega watches has reached its highest peak. People are still buying Coach and Gucci bags even though there is a global popular christmas giftsrecession. Well, the seemingly overwhelming prices of designer discount rolex watches, leather bags and shoulder bags may not be that dramatically overwhelming at all. There are a number of truly great qualities catier bangles of designer handbags that outshine the high prices of such bags. The incredible workmanship womens jackets and beautiful design of fashion handbags are what most people see.
