Merry Christmas!

Just a quick post to say Merry Christmas as let's be honest, who spends lots of time reading blogs on Christmas day?! 

I just wanted to do a quick post on my gorgeous Christmas jumper pictured, which reads "This Girl Loves Christmas", I picked this up from ASOS a few weeks ago and have worn it to death in the run up to Christmas! I like to just dress comfy and casual on Christmas Day (hence the no shoes!) making sure it's something with an expandable waist!!

I've also taken the plunge and after 8 years of having blonde highlights, I finally decided to go brunette. I decided around 6 months ago and my hairdresser gradually kept adding brunette to my hair each time I had it coloured ready to go fully brunette a few days ago! It's also got a hint of red in there to give it more life and I absolutely love it!

Anyway, I'll stop rambling now and wish you all a Merry Christmas again and I hope you're all having a wonderful day!

vintage burberry

jacket - vintage Burberry (ebay), tee - h&m (old), shorts - urban outfitters (old), shoes - Topshop, bag - H&M

These pictures were taken around a month ago before the weather became super cold and I needed a thick coat! However, I wanted to use them for a post as I've never blogged about my little ebay find: my vintage Burberry Harrington Jacket. I found this jacket on ebay a few months ago and just had to have it. It's a gorgeous pink colour with a slight shimmer to it, luckily I wanted the sizing oversized as it's 2 sizes bigger than my actual size. It's lined with the infamous Burberry print and is super thick and cosy. I'd really advise checking out some of the vintage shops on ebay as they sometimes have really great items for a really good price! 

As the jacket itself is a statement piece, I teamed it with this pair of elasticated checked shorts from Urban Outfitters, a simple plain white crop top with the word "Geniale" written across the chest and a pair of black pumps from Topshop, which have been everywhere this season. I received the bag as a gift for my birthday from a friend and use it constantly, it's such a nice size and goes with virtually everything.

I'm finally feeling ready for Christmas now I've finished wrapping all my presents and am sat wearing my Christmas jumper right now, which I'll be blogging about tomorrow. I always find it hard to decide whether to dress up on Christmas day or not but I think this year I'm just going to keep it casual in my Christmas jumper and a nice pair of trousers!

I hope you're all having a lovely Christmas wherever you are in the world and whether you celebrate today or tomorrow!

Merry Christmas!

duster coat

shirt - urban outfitters (old), jeans - ASOS, coat - ASOS, shoes - deena & ozzy via urban outfitters (similar here), handbag - new look (similar here), choker - amazon

It's been so so long since I did a blog post, it's shameful! I started back at University in September and I didn't anticipate just how much work final year entailed on top of applying for jobs, silly of me, I know. I've also had so much going on since I last posted, I've been to Toulouse, had my 21st birthday and have been to multiple concerts (The Courteeners, Paolo Nutini, Jake Bugg and Lady GaGa!) Due to this lack of posts, I now have a huge backlog of outfits so I'll be catching up over the Christmas holidays as I have 3 weeks off!

The duster coat is either a love/hate piece particularly the ones longer in length, they really create divided opinions! I love this duster coat and it was my favourite piece to wear throughout Autumn. It's so versatile as it can be worn both in the day, as shown in the photos above, or as a smart jacket for evening wear. It's now in the sale on ASOS so if you wanted the infamous ASOS one pictured, also seen on Kylie Jenner here, but didn't want to fork out £60, you can grab it now for just £42! I personally think ASOS has the best selection of duster coats so it's definitely worth checking them out if you're after one.

I picked this handbag up a few months ago in New Look in Toulouse whilst I was visiting one of my best friends there. I love the cobalt blue colour and shape of the bag, it also has a longer strap to wear it as a shoulder bag too. I picked up the checked shirt a while ago in Urban Outfitters. It's really easy to just throw over a plain white tee to jazz it up a bit or just wear on it's own with some skinny jeans. The jeans pictured are from ASOS and have a rip in one of the knees, they're low rise and ankle grazers so perfect to wear with loafers or ankle boots. Finally, the choker I'm wearing is from Amazon and was only £2.50! It's really simple but right on trend and so so cute. 

What do you think of duster coats?
