The Winter Coat

Blouse - Next / Trousers - Mango / Necklace - ASOS / Shoes - New Look / Coat - Next

I'm sorry for inflicting this necklace on you three posts running, but this post was a bit impromptuI've literally had the busiest week, so it's really nice to take some time out to do a spot of blogging. A few friends and I travelled down to the Marriott Hotel in Bournemouth this morning for an interview, and it was just so pretty that I wanted to take some blog-worthy photos. 

I picked up this shirt in Next a little while ago but hadn't had the chance to take pictures of it yet. It's so pretty - I love the unusual collar and the pretty pleats. I love the Next sale, I always find so many good buys and no-one seems to think to look there! As I was attempting 'smart casj', the Mango trousers were out again. 

The most important item in this outfit (given the ridiculously cold weather), and probably my biggest wardrobe staple, is the coat. I ought to get a new one really, but I love this one so much! I bought it last Christmas and it is literally the warmest thing, and goes with so much. I really like the colour and the shape, and it usually has a fur collar on but it's not cold enough for that yet! I really like fit and flare style coats, they're so flattering and really great if you're throwing them on over a skirt because you don't get cold. You also avoid flyaway skirt moments!
