What I Wore // A rare warm day = Colours!





Jacket - H! By Henry Holland at Debenhams
Top - Topshop
Necklace - Dolly Bow Bow
Jeans - Zara
Shoes - H&M

I'm usually cursed when it comes to sunshine. If I'm not at work, I'm cramming in revision for exams staring out of the window craving a bit of those warm rays. Well today my lecture was cancelled and my boyfriend suggested getting out of the house for a bit. Inspired by the sudden influx of colours that I've been unable to see through the dark fog for the past however many months, I of course, in true English style, dug into the far corners of my wardrobe for something a little more representative of summer! 

This jacket is a size 18, can you believe it? I hadn't realised until after I bought it for a bargainous £5 and it fits perfectly! I don't understand sizing sometimes. 
I'm also in love with this necklace, I'm not a massive fan of high collars on me but this is a perfect, glittery compromise! The magpie in me is in love. I'm the same with flatforms, I've finally fallen for them but just cannot commit just for the constant reminder of geisha shoes, but this H&M pair have a very slight heel also, which makes them perfect for me!

  7. Hooray for getting a chance to enjoy the sunshine! I know that curse ... it seems like the nicest days leave me stuck behind my desk only to live vicariously thought glances out the window to the passerby's below :)

    I adore your colored jeans (so want a pair this season!) and that collar necklace is pure, sparkling perfection :)

  8. Your pictures are gorgeous, and those colours really suit your hair and skin tone so well. With regards to your jacket size, I give up with clothing sizes! to label anybody as one in particular is so absurd nowadays given the variation between manufacturers, let alone the garment fabric and fit! *le sigh* Anyhoo, you look really lovely. ^_^

    1. They're all over the place aren't they?! I can only assume that its meant to be a super tight cropped jacket which is why the size 18 fits me perfectly! Weird! And thank you <3 x

  9. Loving the shoes. I want to like Flatforms,I just can't help feeling they're a tiny bit TOO clunky... Loving your H&M shoes though, just a bit more elegant and gorgeous colour.

    1. They're really nice! I'm the same as you really, I'm still not sure about them but for some reason the colour and slight wedge changes these so much! :p
