I was off to the pub last week with the girls for our little weekly tradition of pub quiz, nachos and a catch up. It’s a nice chilled cosy pub and on this particular night I was freeezing (I pretty much feel like this all of the time, I’m sure it’s not normal to be this cold). I picked up this absolute saviour of a scarf from the purse friendly Primark for a complete steal of only £6! It is huge too! When laid out flat it is so big and could very easily double up as a picnic blanket in the Summer, multifunctional is never a bad thing. I currently have said blanket wrapped around me while I write this. I have been tucked up ill in bed for a few days hence the old photos being used for this post. I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging so luckily I had this outfit that I hadn’t posted. You definitely wouldn’t want to have seen my attire for the majority of this week…..It consisted of tartan pj bottoms, a burgundy long sleeve top, a pink polka dot dressing gown, fluffly pink socks and a hot water bottle permanently attached to my front. Being ill sucks but Christmas is almost upon us and that, my friend, does not suck in any way shape or form.

How cute is the shade of this coat?! I was shopping about and have seen this coat a few times instore, I’m surprised it didn’t sell out already as finds like this usually do. My local store seemed to have loads left, I caved and eventually decided to buy it. For a mere £25 you can’t really lose out when a coat is this pretty. I was highly impressed at how good the quality was also, that may sound a bit snobby but with Primark the quality is sometimes reflected in the low cost price. This is definitely not one of those items though, it is lined and keeps me really warm. I sized right down to a 6 on this one as its a cocoon oversized fit and anything bigger seemed to drown me. This one fits perfectly even with chunky knits worn underneath. I am going back at the weekend and if it’s still available I am going to snap up the grey version as it’s so cheap and grey is a good base colour to have and wear with all sorts.

I got this jumper a couple of weeks ago and I’ve barely taken it off since. It’s soooo bloody cosy and comfortable and exactly the what you need in this bitterly cold weather……warm! I love khaki when it comes to knitwear and in the winter it’s a shade you see again and again. This jumper can be worn in a casual way with your ripped knee jeans and uggs for a lazy Sunday or you can dress it up a touch like I have here by wearing it with a leather skirt.

This is bit of an oldie of a top but I still love wearing it, I tend to get it out more in the summer but I just fancied wearing white and didn’t want to go for a plain cami top. I got it from Topshop a while back, it’s so cute and girly. It has a plain cropped underlay and the pleated chiffon overlay sits on top. I like the thin straps too as they add to the delicate style of the rest of the top.

I am so in love with this cuddly pink teddy coat, it is the warmest, snuggliest coat I’ve had in ages. It’s also super girly in this cute candy pink colour and it’s a perfect way to soften up a boyish kind of outfit. I like the contrast I have here with the faux leather skirt and chunky boots, it balances out the outfit niceley. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a breton top is an absolute must for every wardrobe as they are so versatile and easy to wear.

I love a boyfriend blazer, they are so easy to throw on with all sorts and they just make an outfit. I love the masculine twist a boyfriend blazer adds instantly to an outfit. The baggy oversized fit balances out the skinny jeans and girly shoes. I wore this one with this outfit as it was a nice contrast to the sheer burnout style print on the cami top. I love this top and always seem to forget about it, it’s a cute alternative to a plain black cami, it looks a lot less see through in real life when you wear it (the flash made it look a lot more sheer than it really is). It was a bit of a run around day so the hair was thrown up into a quick messy bun, probably my most favoured go to hairstyle when I am in a hurry.

 I wore this outfit a little while ago for my beautiful little nieces christening. I have blogged this dress before a few months back when I was on holiday and a lot more tanned might I add, boo! I have had so much wear from this piece (and the navy version which I also have) and it was only, a very purse friendly, £9! I absolutely love bagging a bargain. I thought it was perfect for a christening and I love the all over texture, it makes it a little more interesting. I kept all my accessories gold as I think cream and gold complement each other so well.
