I'm In Love With Mr. So And So

So I bought a coat that feels like a hug. Ideal.
I'm definitely one of those that struggle with not looking like a gigantic furry blob when wearing a big furry coat but, y'know what? sometimes... I just couldn't care less. Sometimes it's not about desperately trying to suck in my Christmas belly and making excuses for my festive rolls.. sometimes it's okay to just embrace the blobness and whack on a hug coat. Okay then.
Anyway, I digress.
So when this coat first came into store.. I kinda.. well.. I didn't love it.. lets just say that. However, days went by, brushing past the coat, lovingly placing it back on its hanger... slowly it made it's way onto the mannequins and then onto my body.. as has most of Topshop. 
I took a little (a lot) of inspiration from the lovely Megan from Pages By Megan  in THIS instagram picture.
 I obviously don't look effortlessly cool and insanely beaut in the way that she (always) does, but.. she taught me that it was more than okay to wear a fur bomber.. and for that I am glad.
I'm wearing it here with a vintage shirt that I picked up at a vintage fair in Birmingham quite a few months back. It looks best when tied round the waist into a cute little crop but, not really the weather is it guys?

I also somehow managed to find time to film a bit of an Autumn Winter lookbook ( with a tonne of help from the beloved boy, mwah!) it's got a couple of NYE appropriate items in there, along with some staple winter threads, let me know what you think!

    1. Haha, to be honest I should have got it in a size smaller but they didn't have my size so ended up going extra swampy! Ah well, cosy and warm is the way forward ha

  5. I can tell you now, you do not look at all like a furry blob! You pull of outfits so effortlessly, I'm very jealous. Love the vintage shirt as well. Great lookbook as well, we're scarf twins! That primark scarf is my best buy this winter!

  8. Such a perfect outfit! That coat looks gorgeous - I also have a fur bomber. When I move to London the pair of us will have to swan around in fur bombers together, looking fabulous and generally just being great! xo
