Start With Sound

You may have seen this badass jumper from Cos in my recent haul video (which if you didn't, you can view in this post) and boy am I glad I bought it. It was one of those things that I'd bought and weeks had gone by without me wearing it and I was beginning to wonder if I really should have invested all of my non existent pennies it. But y'know.. then I wore it and basically fell in love with it all over again. Nothing beats swishy flowy sleeves in my opinion.. I guess I'm a little bit like a small child.
I also managed to fit this trench coat over it without it feeling too awkward which was a welcome surprise. Batwing sleeves and excess material never really mixes with layers does it?! These photo's were taken by Megs last weekend on a bit of a countryside walk which I absolutely loved. It's so nice to get out of the city, especially when I'm not the biggest fan of Birmingham anyway. It really makes me want to move to somewhere a little more rural, where you can see beautiful scenery by just wandering round the corner. I guess it helped massively that the weather was just beautiful too. Seeing how these photo's turned out has really made me want to experiment more with the location of my photo's too. It's obviously a lot easier having someone to shoot with and you don't get these kind of locations anywhere near me but.. it's certainly worth exploring and trying to find new places, so expect to see more diversity in my outfit photo's in the future!

Where do you go when you want to breathe in the fresh air and take ten? I think it's important every now and again to make sure that we give a bit of time back to ourselves and have a little break in our day or routine. Even if it's just talking the dog for a walk or going for a drive with your favourite CD blasting. I know that for me, it can help make my brain feel a little less mushed.. and that's always good isn't it?

  3. I love the cape - it screams you! I used to live/grew up near Birmingham and there are some lovely rural areas just outside the city - haven't been back in so long :(

      Ahh yeah, it's just hard to find the time to go as it takes quite a long time to get anywhere like that from where I live! Dreaming of living in some kind of cottage surrounded by trees and wildlife atm haaha!

  5. I love that cape! They're beautiful photos, it's nice to get out into the country for a different perspective. I live very close to lots of countryside and pretty villages and it's nice to get away and go for a wander. I love driving down to the New Forest - lots of ponies about and beautiful scenery.

  8. I love swishy, flowy fabric! Hopefully you'll get an ace amount of wear out of this jumper as the weather warms up and we get to ditch all the layers (well not all... but yeah). Your legs are also incredibly enviable, and I want those shoes, too. :D
