For someone who hates being cold, I am terrible at ‘weather appropriate’ outfits. Maybe it’s because I’ve never found a jumper which doesn’t make me look like the Michelin (Wo)man, maybe it’s because I’m awaiting the day where it’s socially acceptable to wear an electric blanket in public, but my ‘Winter look’ tends to comprise of jeans + stupid shoes + leopard print coat (GOTTA LOOK CHIC WHILE I’M SHIVERING MY ARSE OFF) and a gigantic blanket scarf. Which, coincidentally, is what I wore for most of last week.
I wore the above outfit when attending a Superbowl party last week as I wanted something which both looked good, and had enough give to accommodate the mountain of buffalo wings, nachos and mac & cheese I intended to consume. The t-shirt is from the ace Junarose, and is one of the softest, comfiest items of clothing I own. Plus, it’s incredibly sturdy and looks awesome.
Skinny jeans: ASOS Curve (Ridley)
Gold flats: London Rebel
Leopardprint coat: Vintage
Necklace: Tatty Devine
And here’s a closer look at that Tatty Devine necklace. I’ve owned it for a while now, but absolutely adore it as it’s huge and goes with practically everything. It’s not the cheapest item of jewellery I’ve ever bought, but it’s certainly one that I get the most joy out of. The lipstick is Screen Siren by Topshop. I’ve fallen head over heels for Topshop’s make-up recently, particularly their lipsticks which are fantastic value for money. Screen Siren is the perfect shade of raspberry red, and goes perfectly with my (recently dyed) red locks. Perfect for all you financially savvy redheads out there.
