it's all about the jacket

18/12/2013


what i'm wearing:
H&M collarless blouse (similar here)
zara pinafore style dungarees
H&M layered necklace (all one-piece)

before any of my outfit posts live, they go through a submission process known as my boyfriend and sister. if they don't like it, it doesn't go live and if they do well it ends up on here. i wasn't particularly happy with the main shot but my sister was adamant that it was nice so hey ho she must just like big lion mane hair on me; although i quote her when she says " i hate your roots though". in hindsight i really am in desperate need of my roots getting done, however you will have to wait until the beginning of next year before that happens. this is because i'm skint as hell, and also i want them done for my holiday more than christmas. they are disgusting mind, actually taking over my head. so one of the reasons why i am so skint is because i decided to buy this coat whilst online doing some "window shopping". and by window shopping i mean, looking for excuses to buy things. now to some people you might be thinking £65 isn't even that bad for a coat, but when you are basically living out of your overdraft everytime you get paid you know it's time to stop clicking 'place order'. that being said i still haven't mustered the willpower to conquer my shopping demons yet. since i bought it last week though i haven't been out of it. even wearing it with things that do not compliment it at all, such as a couple of floral pieces which i shouldn't admit to. i only wish that i'd bought my zara dunagrees in the smallest size, i say it everytime i wear them as it's my biggest regret that i have to wear a belt to hoist them up. hence why you see a vile pink thing in the middle. i couldn't find my black one, sue me.

p.s sorry for it being up so late!

  14. Loving your new outdoor outfit photos! Couldn't you just get your dungarees altered by a tailor? I do that with lots of clothes and they fit way better after.

    1. No I can't as there is a zip on the side of the waist so it can't be removed. It's the waist it's just far too big x
