#OOTD: 17.03.17

When I broke my wrist earlier this year there were VERY few things that were capable of cheering me up. Realising that in a miserable post-Gilmore Girls world I could still watch hours of Matt Czuchry by starting seven seasons of The Good Wife was one, and this Topshop Duster Coat was the other.

I first saw this coat on some cool cat at Portobello hotspot, The Electric, one morning during a meeting. I assumed the over-sized, colour blocking coat HAD to be designer - the maximalist sizing and the colour clashing just seemed too fashwunnn to be easily (or financially) accessible – so I quickly moved my thoughts back to my pancakes.  I saw the coat a week later whilst perusing Topshop’s website, which was OBVIOUSLY a sign, right?!! I mean, I basically manifested this coat back into my world, and at a jolly decent price… It had to be mine. 

As predicted, I absolutely love it, and with Spring toying with us, seemingly unwilling to stick around and play ball, this colour block Topshop Duster Coat is warm enough for London’s current chilly situ, but not too wooly or faux furry that I feel like I’ll melt on those rare, but gloooorious, sunny days.  EVEN better, this coat is now in the sale (reduced from £129.00 to £65.00!) so move QUIIIIICK!!

Now, excuse me, must get back to Cary Agos… (*I still love you Logan Huntzberger!)

Debit Buy: H&M's Sleeveless Blouse


Whenever I wear my H&M ruffled top I am inundated with people asking me where I bought it.  Although I purchased it recently in store recently, it was an instant sell-out (having been featured in several magazines), and no longer available. HOWEVER, H&M have just released a similar style online (left), which may actually, with it's lighter, softer material, be eeeeeven more appropriate for the summer months (when they actually decide to begin...!)  

Quick, quick now, I don't expect this little on-trend frilled number with stand up bib collar will last long on the shelves either.

Debit Buy: L.K Bennett's Martina Saffiano Tote

As Autumn has most certainly arrived and my wardrobe is becoming increasingly darker by the day, I am loving that the current apple of my eye, my L.K. Bennett handbag couldn’t be shining any brighter.  The classically styled bag is roomy, with three compartments, yet small enough to carry desk to dinner (and beyond!) Oh, and did I mention it’s in the sale?...

Debit Buy: Novelty Socks

Depressingly, it’s time to go 'back to school' and back to shoes… I've decided the only way to cope with the severe lack of sand between my toes is to with some good ol’novelty socks.  Seriously, what doesn't alleviate the summertime withdrawals more than looking at your feet and seeing some hula dancing cats?!...  

Debit Buy: Topshop's MOTO Pretty Bleached Ripped Hayden Jeans

Even in the heat of the summer I am a real jeans girl... so wearing jeans with fully installed air conditioning?! Errrrrm... Perfect!

Topshop jeans are hard to beat, with a consistently up to date range of styles and accessible prices, and I am loving wearing their MOTO Pretty Bleached Ripped Hayden Jeans.  Boyfriend in style with very of the moment distressed and shredded rip detailing, they are relaxed and cool.  Real COOL. 

RRP. £45.00


Debit Buy: Chinti and Parker Heart Pocket T-Shirt at Iris Fashion


I am totally in LOVE this Heart Pocket Striped T'Shirt from Chinti and Parker... Why exactly?  Errrrrm, did I not mention the awesome combination of two of my favourite things? Breton style nautical stripes (a la Audrey) and hearts.  This soft, 100% cotton, 3/4 length sleeve top is now on SALE (*wahoooo!) HERE at Iris Fashion.  
it would be rude not to really...

RRP. £85.00 £60.00

Debit Buy: Zara's Rubberized Effect Sunglasses

I’ve been enjoying my sky blue Rubberized Effect Sunglasses from Zara (above, on the way to pick up the keys to my new HOUSE – hence, the shocked/excited/confused look!) ever since the sun put his hat on, albeit briefly, earlier this year.  Although now sold out, Zara have just brought out this sea green pair (below right) which are just as awesome and affordable.  A summer must have methinks.  Available HERE (RRP. £15.99).


Debit Buy: Topshop 'Kiss Me' T'Shirt

Pucker Up!  Loving me a Topshop ‘Kiss Me Boxy Burnout Tee!’  (RRP. £!6.00)  
They are oh-so-soft, oh-so-cure and oh-so-appropriately ‘out there’ in the lead up toValentine's Day.  However, they should almost certainly come baring a hazard warning;  ‘Wearing this t’shirt outside the comfort of your own home may put you at risk of increased and unwarranted attention!’  Honestly, wear this t'shirt in public and prepare to feel like a walking piece of mistletoe - so pick your company wisely!

Debit Buy: Gap's Leopard Print Slip On Sneakers

As perfect transition footwear, the ‘slip on sneaker’ had a BIG revival this Autumn, adorning the feet of many a hipster, fashion blogger and usually well-heeled fashionista.  I was naturally pining for Céline’s leopard print calf hair pair (right), but without wanting to beg, borrow or steal, I more than happily settled for GAP’s bargainous Céline’esq version for £39.99! The quality is great and I particularly love wearing them with my skinny black jeans and black cashmere jumper.  Several of my friends have also now run to buy them while they are still in stock – and whilst this weather remains ankle-friendly… #Hurry!

Debit Buy: H&M Floral Trousers

The first day you are forced to wear you A/W coat is always a sorry one.  I was so glad that on this particular dreaded day I had my new pair of H&M floral trousers to help with this seasonal transition (my glittery shoes may also have helped too!)  I adore this print - the same one that Lana Del Rey models in the latest H&M campaign (below).  The high street is still currently blooming with many fabulous floral pieces after having a summer inspired by designers such as Erdem and Celine. So hurry and pick your favourite bunch...

H&M Floral Trousers  RRP. £24.99
