what I wore: april showers

quick outfit post today! this is actually one I wore while I was away, I thought I'd best share it before the summer when pictures of me sporting a woolly hat led you to question my sanity!

this is my usual wet day get up, enough layers to qualify as a walking onion & a hat to stop my hair from resembling an 80's perm. I think I look slightly like a hobo in this outfit, but dammit it was comfy.

the weather is due to be glorious tomorrow; I've been raiding the depths of my wardrobe to resurrect long neglected summer dresses... hip hip hurray! I'm even splashing out on some fake tan this evening (somebody stop me I'm going wild..)
hat: topman
navy boyfriend coat: primark
yellow check scarf: h&m
pink mohair jumper: h&m (ss12)
jeans: topshop baxter
racoon print shirt: asos
heart collar clips: c/o chelsea doll
leather satchel: topshop
boots: office

I'm best be off as I have my niece and nephew visiting. I've dug up 6 worms, constructed a nest for a ladybird and I'm now attempting to build a den in the back garden. I feel like a poor mans david attenborough... wish me luck!

  5. I remember that pink jumper coming into store, it was sooo nice but the fluff kept coming off and sticking to my jeans which is why I didn't buy it...I sometimes wish I had though!

    You look lovely :) Also, great scarf and you really cannot beat a satchel!
