Country rose..

Coat: Louche
Necklace: Topshop
Dress: Cath Kidston
Shoes: Irregular Choice
Jumper: Primark
This jumper and dress combination is one which I've had in my mind for a long while, inspired by Jazmine a little while back, now. I'm not sure what took me so long to get around to it, other than the fact that the last time I tried to wear this jumper, I realised that the sleeves were cut so tight I could barely fit my arms into it.

I managed to ease my way into it - I certainly don't think that my arms have got any smaller, so that can't be it - and I do like it, on it's own and over the dress. The dress itself, I'm not so sure about. I've worn it a lot, by my standards, but even so, every time I wear it I feel as though it's a bit, I dunno, frumpy? Not that flattering. I'm not sure what it is.

I'm also not sure what these shoes are called, but they were my absolute favourite pair of Irregular Choice for a good couple of years. During uni, I would wear these a couple of times per week, with just about anything; skirts, jeans (yes, jeans!) etc. I still love them, but they don't really fit me that well anymore. I don't know if it's that my feet have shrunk, or that they've stretched with being worn so much. I will probably  keep an eye out for a replacement pair.

And the necklace? Doesn't seem to have left my neck all week! A lovely present from the weekend.


  1. That coat is absolutely amazing! As is the necklace! You look fabulous

  2. Love the fur collar on the coat!


  3. I love the coat too! And the your pink bike! xx

  4. Like everyone else I love the coat, it looks so snuggly and warm.

  5. Oooh, I like those shoes, they're so pretty!! It strikes me thigh, Char, that you could very easily buy some simple pink court shoes and upcycle them with fabric roses that come from any haberdashery if you couldn't find something similar! X

  6. I love everything about this outfit!
