I was off to the pub last week with the girls for our little weekly tradition of pub quiz, nachos and a catch up. It’s a nice chilled cosy pub and on this particular night I was freeezing (I pretty much feel like this all of the time, I’m sure it’s not normal to be this cold). I picked up this absolute saviour of a scarf from the purse friendly Primark for a complete steal of only £6! It is huge too! When laid out flat it is so big and could very easily double up as a picnic blanket in the Summer, multifunctional is never a bad thing. I currently have said blanket wrapped around me while I write this. I have been tucked up ill in bed for a few days hence the old photos being used for this post. I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging so luckily I had this outfit that I hadn’t posted. You definitely wouldn’t want to have seen my attire for the majority of this week…..It consisted of tartan pj bottoms, a burgundy long sleeve top, a pink polka dot dressing gown, fluffly pink socks and a hot water bottle permanently attached to my front. Being ill sucks but Christmas is almost upon us and that, my friend, does not suck in any way shape or form.

How cute is the shade of this coat?! I was shopping about and have seen this coat a few times instore, I’m surprised it didn’t sell out already as finds like this usually do. My local store seemed to have loads left, I caved and eventually decided to buy it. For a mere £25 you can’t really lose out when a coat is this pretty. I was highly impressed at how good the quality was also, that may sound a bit snobby but with Primark the quality is sometimes reflected in the low cost price. This is definitely not one of those items though, it is lined and keeps me really warm. I sized right down to a 6 on this one as its a cocoon oversized fit and anything bigger seemed to drown me. This one fits perfectly even with chunky knits worn underneath. I am going back at the weekend and if it’s still available I am going to snap up the grey version as it’s so cheap and grey is a good base colour to have and wear with all sorts.

On Wednesday I was very kindly invited by the lovely girls at Reiss to the bloggers lunch to showcase their spring summer ’14 collection. The afternoon was held in the luxurious tower suite of the amazingly beautiful Landmark Hotel in Marylebone. It was an afternoon of high tea, finger sandwiches and very yummy scones complete with clotted cream and strawberry jam. To say I was a tad full by the end of the afternoon is a massive understatement. I indulged big time!

First off I realise that I have no feet in these pictures. I was in a crazy rush to snap this outfit as I was off to the hospital because I became an aunty for the first time! When I got home I looked at the pics and realised I had the camera too high and so therefore no feet! It was too dark to take the pics again so I will just have to use these but you get the idea. You aren’t missing much below the ankles, just a pair of dusky pink suede tassel Topshop loafers.

I picked up this cute daisy print shirt last year in a Topshop sale. I’d been looking at it for a little while and wasn’t too sure but as soon as it went into the sale I was straight on it. It’s an oversized style shirt making it one of the most comfortable tops to wear. It’s black base means that you can pair it up with so many options.

A while back I got a pleather t-shirt from Topshop. It’s a nice change from a plain jersey boyfriend tee sometimes and the addition of texture makes an outfit more interesting. As it got towards the cooler temperatures of November I realised that it wouldn’t look that good with my much worn winter staple, my leather biker jacket.

I recently had a big clean out of my wardrobe and I got to this old plain navy jumper I got aaaages ago when I used to work in New Look. I kind of had a vision because even though I haven’t worn the jumper in probably well over a year I didn’t want to get rid of it. My rule is usually, if unworn in the last 4 months then it has to go on ebay to a new home where it will be loved. I suddenly remembered some little sew on gems I bought from ebay and my love of embellishment took over.

Nail Polish: OPI ‘A Roll In The Hague’ (Holland Collection)

Not a very long post today, the last few have been on the longer side of things so I have decided to keep it short and sweet for you. I was heading out for cocktails so I decided to dress up a little bit I went for a more smart/dressy combo as I don’t tend to go for smarter styles too often and it’s nice to change things up a bit sometimes. I didn’t go the whole hog as I opted for flats rather than heels as I just wasn’t in a mega ‘heels’ mood.
