Pastels in the Rain

Oh, we are well and truly transitioning into our ever bittersweet British Winter here in London. I say bittersweet because while the wind, cold and rain is biting at my shivering skin, a huge part of me loves the city in the Winter - dark nights, Christmas pop ups, festive food markets, and an impossible amount of entertainment to try and pull us out of the Wintery darkness.

Whilst today wasn't spent enjoying any of the above and Charlie and I were pretty much working inside all day, we did pop out for a bit to take some blog photos and get some naaiiiiice fresh (and wet) air. These photos are a bit all over the place - we had to go back home mid-shoot to clean the camera lense, and as you can tell the cold seems to have numbed all my face muscles... still, it was the perfect opportunity to start showing off my obscene Winter coat collection. Another reason why Winter in London is great - you don't have to think about what you're wearing under all those layers.

This coat is a perfect example of how when my willpower makes a very rare appearance, it can pay off. A couple of years ago I was lusting over this pastel Miss Selfridge coat which unfortunately for my bank account was around £70, but after spotting it in the Summer sales I grabbed it for £20. YESSSS. There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of a good bargain. For super cosiness I paired it with my pastel blue fuzzy fuzzy cookie monster muppet jumper from Brave Soul. Not a brand I normally go for, but their jumpers are so soft I couldn't resist. Throughout the Winter months you'll begin to see how comfort takes priority over any fashion sense I may have had....
