Style Diary: Candy Coated

Jeans- Topshop | Jumper- Red Herring at Debenhams | Coat- New Look | Shoes- Boohoo

You know those days when you feel like your skin is awful, your hair won't go right and you look super chubby from every angle? The day I had set aside to take these outfit photos was one of those days. I literally got home and wanted to cry after looking over the photos, I was absolutely gutted as I love this outfit and I was so looking forward to doing a post on it. After a few hours off my laptop and some kind words from James and some lovely blogger pals on Twitter, I decided to go ahead and post this anyway. We all have bloated, bad skin and bad hair days that's just an aspect of life and that's what my blog represents, my real life, so here I am for you guys in all my chubby glory. 

But this post isn't about me anyways, it's about this outfit and it's one I will say I really love. I'm a huge jeans girl - their soo comfy I could literally wear them every day - and what is more perfectly on trend but still just a cosy to wear with jeans than a high neck jumper? This one is actually my mumma's that she kindly let me borrow, but I will definitely be investing one of my own once she gets it back as it's such a staple item. My only ever qualm with jeans and a plain top is sometimes they can appear a bit boring but in the winter months there is no better accessory to bring a little bit more to an outfit than a coat. I bought this gorgeous pink New Look one last year and leading up to the end of summer I was so excited to be able to wear this again. It's super soft and adorable, I love the girly colour but comfortable, relaxed fit. Another aspect of this outfit I'm a little bit in love with are my shoes. I recently bought these gorgeous shoes the other day from Boohoo and have not wanted to take them off. They are so flipping cute, the little bow detailing on them is to die for and the subtle platform is perfect for me as my massive feet can't pull off those fabulous chunky platforms that everyone else is flaunting all over my Instagram feed.

I hope you're all having a lovely week!

  5. You look lovely - it's so easy to look at ourselves and worry that we look terrible, but nobody else notices the flaws! The coat is gorge, such a lovely colour :)
