a love affair with cobalt blue

02/01/2014


what i'm wearing:
H&M satin blouse (similar here)
H&M leather heeled boots
topshop earrings
vintage bag

my first outfit post of 2014, it feels totally crazy thinking that another year has gone past already. say hello to my new coat, for the great price of £25 down from £58. if you've read my blog for a while you know how i feel about cobalt blue so i just couldn't leave this even when i know just how many coats i own. in other news i'm finally getting my hair done next week! i'm about 80% on giving my hair the chop to my shoulders as my hair is in need of some TLC and at the moment it just looks like a mess. only thing putting me off is that if i hate it i won't get any photos with liam on holiday. what do you think, should i go for it? or keep my length?

  1. Bargain coat! I wouldn't of left it either.
    I also end up cutting my hair off when I get bored of it growing! Always make it healthier and gives it more shape!
    happy new year

  2. Gorgeous coat and colour and looks great on you! (currently searching Topshop.com in hope! :p)
    I love hair appointments! I'm sure the length will suit you well.. everyone seems to be getting 'the chop' recently.. think I took it to the extreme by getting a 'pob', so can't wait for it to get back to my shoulders!

  6. I picked up the same coat along with the pink fluffy one as well - at such a great price all restraint goes out the window especially when they're so beautiful.

  12. Absolutely lovely coat, I am such a sucker for cobalt blue and the blouse has such a lovely pattern on it, I'd say yes to the chop! I've been debating it recently as I feel my hair could do with it too, but if you're worried about not liking it and so not wanting to take photos on holiday you could always hold off getting your hair cut until after if that possible, but I think you have nothing to worry about because I'm sure it will look lovely on you :) xx

  24. I love a bright coat! I think no matter how many coats you own they're always something worth buying another one of as they dictate so much of your style for the day when you live in the UK - no point in wearing a beautiful outfit then hiding it under a boring black coat, so coats are ALWAYS justifiable. Especially when they're as beautiful as this one.
