Grey on Grey – The return of the sleeveless Jacket

This is the third outing of this sleeveless grey coat on the blog, and I’m sure it won’t be the last! It’s the first time I’ve managed to pair it with items that aren’t maroon, which is a minor achievement in itself. That being said, I’ve shunned colours completely and gone for a grey and black palette for a dreary spring day. Continue reading “Grey on Grey – The return of the sleeveless Jacket”

A Big Jumper and A Small Skirt

I’m genuinely not sure what was going through my head when I selected this outfit, but I actually really like it. I think the random combination is just on the border of my comfort zone, and lately I’ve been quite pleased with those slightly-more-eccentric outfit choices. The colour palette is still quite simple, which helps keep some level of cohesion. Each aspect of the outfit is quite simple too, it’s together that they’re a bit more bizarre!  Continue reading “A Big Jumper and A Small Skirt”

The Sleeveless Coat

I can’t believe it’s March and I’m still working through my sale haul from the New Year! I guess that just goes to show how much wear I get out of my favourite pieces. Also, it might give an indication of how nervous I am to try new looks. In my defence, it’s not been warm enough to wear a coat without sleeves until now. I’d been on the lookout for a sleeveless coat for a while, and when I saw this one in the Next sales just after Christmas I knew it had to be mine. The fabric is a really heavy mix which I really like. It also hangs quite long on me, which I think works well for a chilly spring day. Continue reading “The Sleeveless Coat”

Old favourites – Knitwear, leather and white denim

Just a quick post today, as I’ve not got a lot to say about this outfit of current favourites. I’ve got a pile of clothes at home from my winter sales haul that I’ve not even worn yet! Somehow, though, I seem to keep reverting back to the safety of my favourite pieces. These white jeans have appeared a lot lately, with the onset of spring. It’s still a risk for me to wear white as I’m so very clumsy, but I quite like the challenge! I’ve lost count of the number of times this super soft jumper has appeared on my social media. I’m pretty sure it’s my favourite piece of knitwear ever. Continue reading “Old favourites – Knitwear, leather and white denim”

Old Clothes, New Outfit

I’ve worn every item in this post hundreds of times, but never together! The burgundy knit from last winter is the newest piece here, and it’s featured many times over on my Instagram. I’m also wearing my go-to block heeled ankle boots, which have had A LOT of wear over the years. This thin Mac from Primark was a bargain buy ages ago, and whilst I’d like to invest in a higher quality version, I’ve yet to find something that I’m willing to splash out on when this one does the job pretty well. Finally, this printed light cotton skirt: I’m wearing in my Twitter profile pic, and it must be at least 10 years old now!  Continue reading “Old Clothes, New Outfit”

Cosy Knit and Black

On a dreary Monday after a tiring weekend, I honestly didn’t have the energy to try and put together a particularly snazzy outfit. My default throughout the winter months has been a chunky, cosy knit and simple separates. I’ve gone for this tried and tested combo here, with an old roll neck jumper I acquired from a previous house share, trusty black skinnies and an age old wool coat.
