Well I did it, after months of telling myself that I did not need a pink coat, and I would never wear it, here we are. And I bloomin' love it. It's fluffy and just the right amount of pink that it doesn't make me want to throw up when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror. Oh and it goes GREAT with this Topshop gingham skirt. This was my reasoning to my Mother's raised eyebrows at another coat. I'm trying my best to compromise with the weather in the hope that spring may start appearing soon, but until then thermal layers are a must. Also I have finally found my dream pair of loafers, in Asos's Musical leather beauties - they're music to my ears anyway that's for sure, there's even a glimmer of a smile in these pictures!

All this horrible grey weather is really starting to affect my outfit choices, not to mention my mood. Grey is the most befitting colour to match this in the form of this cropped jumper that I picked up in Topshop's sale, accompanied with a side order of black Joni's (the most flattering jeans ever). Sun where are you? I'm bored of luggin' this big ol' coat around.

Winter come at me - I am fully ready for you. I spent yesterday in London getting absolutely peed on by the rain, however all was fine as I was in my new Zara duffle, which is the cosiest coat you can imagine. It does upset me a little that it doesn't have toggle fastenings, but it does have a beaut tweed lining, so I guess I shouldn't be so picky. My Kanken mini is also my new best friend - it fits my camera in plus everything else that must be lugged with me 24/7 minus the backache which usually comes with carrying all this. My cosy cropped aran knit, Topshop devore blouse, cord AA circle skirt and these beyond perfect chelsea boots also from Topshop, not only did a great job at keeping me warm, I then managed to transform them for an impromptu night of dancing. This may have been helped along with a few cocktails convincing me that a tied up blouse (Britney style) looked okay, but we'll just ignore that.

Today I spent the day up in London, exploring Liberty's treasure trove of fabrics with my Mum and Nana - we're all avid stitchers - followed by a spot of lunch and a trip to the Prince Charles cinema in Leicester Square to watch Philomena. It was such a treat for all three generations and definitely something that will have to happen on a more regular basis! I didn't take many pictures, but just couldn't resist snapping some of the gorgeous floral lawns.
