take me outside, sit in the green garden..

top: new look // cardigan: h&m
fur coat: vintage shop
skirt, necklace: primark
shoes: marks and spencer limited collection
Today I have plenty of time planned at the allotment, I have to sort out some paving stones for the shed to sit on, when I manage to get those sorted I'm quite excited about putting up the shed and fancy painting it a nice pale green colour, because of some photo I found on Pinterest I think.

Not exactly gardening garb, but an outfit post nonetheless. I'd had to spend some New Look vouchers as part of a mystery shopping assignment recently, so thought I'd be best off putting them towards some staple vest tops. I can't seem to get enough bottle green in my wardrobe. Hence all the wear these heels have been getting, lately.

I tried it with a skirt which is really too big these days and looks a bit ridiculous, so will be relegated to the ebay pile before long. I am never quite sure how to wear this collar necklace either, but I think it's ok with this neckline.

I need to figure out how I replace the hooks and eyes which were on this coat, as I'm now down to just one which sort of negates the point of it being the warmest coat in the world.


  1. One of my favourite songs at the moment!
    Gorgeous coat, it's beaver lamb, a treatment applied to make sheepskin look fur-like in the 1930s- 1950s. You need fur hooks, most haberdashers do them. x

  2. I love the print on the outfit m'dear x

  3. Aww I have this skirt too and sadly mine is also now too big :( xx
