What I Wore Today: Checkerboard Dressing

For a while now I’ve been wishing that the weather would just hurry up and turn cold already. Today my wishes were answered.

This morning I got to pull out thick black tights, my trusty Topshop brogues and my animal-print Zara coat, which probably makes me happier then it should.
You see, I’m just one of those weird people who loves winter. I like the cold. I love throwing on as many layers as possible and looking like the Michelin man. I look forward to wrapping giant scarves round my neck and pulling on a garishly-jewelled beanie. 
Winter is the time my wardrobe – full of printed, long-sleeved shirts, chunky jumpers, wool dresses, leather skirts, shorts and trousers – gets to shine. 
And I fully intend on reveling in that fact.

My Go-To Summer Skirt

The only song I have running through my mind at the moment is Will Smith’s Summertime. This weather is just incredible and I’m definitely enjoying pub gardens, the smell of suncream (it smells exactly like holidays) and busting out all my long-lost summer clothes.

My current go-to skirt is surprising for me…

 

 

 

This skirt would usually be way out of my comfort zone. I tend to shy away from super tight things as I hate feeling restricted (think it all stems down to my IBS constantly bloating me, I don’t want to look pregnant when I’m not thank you very much) but when paired with a slightly loser top, I have to say I kinda like it.

There is one clear reason I love this vest top. This picture will explain that.

I picked up the animal-print sunnies from ASOS for Latitude as they were big enough to protect nearly my whole face from the sun. Plus, I can never say no to animal print. You should all know that by now. I’m fairly predictable.

 

Why not finish with a little selfie?

Swinging Florals

Technically I wore this outfit yesterday but we’ll brush over those details and focus on how freaking cool this floral swing top is instead.

It’s beautifully oversized with nice long sleeves which I like. It’s a new summer staple of mine as it can be chucked on with jeans, cute denim shorts or dressed up with skirts.

It also lives up to its name and swings like a beauty. Watch it go…

Ohhhh yeah. Check out the volume on that. And the hair.

Life couldn’t get any better right now.

Does my hair look like a wig to you? I just got my roots did…

My Brand Spanking New Cookie Monster Coat

I have a lot in common with the Cookie Monster. In fact, I’ll start by naming three things right now.

1. We both like cookies
2. We both have a blue furry coat
3. We both act a muppet on a regular basis

For today’s purposes we’re going to focus on point two. My gorgeous new blue furry coat.

I originally featured this coat as my Want it on Wednesday at the end of November after seeing it in Topshop the weekend before with my mum. As soon as we both spotted it, I gravitated towards it and stroked it. I probably looked a muppet (see what I did there) but I’m afraid it’s just a basic instinct for me. After 10 minutes or so, I tried it on, fell in love and BAM, there was my mum’s Christmas prezzie to me sorted.

Usually I wear a size 10, sometimes a 12 in coats, as I have extremely broad shoulders. However, I actually got this coat in a size 8 as it’s super over-sized anyway. I find it hangs perfectly and due to the bright blue, brightens any outfit as well as generally cheering me up.

I’ve layered it with a maroon scarf of Al’s (I feel like it’s finally
time to use the not-so-new boys actual name) and this amazing
bling-bling beanie which a lovely friend of mine (thanks Char if you’re
reading) got me for my birthday.

Now, where are the god damn cookies. Me want cookies.
