what i'm wearing:
zara studded collar shirt
zara fur gilet/jacket
topshop leather trousers (old)
mulberry alexa bag
MK watch


i'm sorry everything on this picture was bought at the beginning of this year so i can't provide a link for each item if you were interested in them. i'm sure if you look at each brands website though they will provide something similar to what i'm wearing. i have a love/hate relationship with this jacket because although i love colour and the fur on the front the fact it's sleeveless means it's really difficult for me to wear in the A/W season. unless i chose to wear a long sleeved top with it. even so, i love the combination of the browns from the jacket and my bag paired with the white shirt and the texture of the leather trousers really sets it off. i also really love the detailing on the back of the shirt with the chiffon pleats it makes it so pretty, although my bra always shows through which is annoying!

my title is because ever since watching the john lewis advert it's been stuck in my head, isn't it the cutest christmas advert ever! also i found out that the cover was done by gabrielle aplin who i used to watch religiously on youtube 2/3 years ago so i'm so happy for her success.

    1. It really gives off an autumnal vibe doesn't it? And I know it made me tear up a little bit when I saw it the first time because it was so sweet. I'm such a softy! x

  16. Love this outfit, the gilet is so pretty :) it's a shame about you having to only wear long sleeves though, why don't you try another jacket underneath, like a biker jacket? :)
    The top is beautiful too :) xx

  20. I totally get what you mean about the sleeveless jacket. It would look awesome with a long sleeved top underneath though.

  21. You have such amazing style! That's annoying about the jacket, it's because our weather is so extreme! Always either way too freezing or boiling hot haha xxx
