today: leopard and plum

fur coat: vintage, similar here | jeans: topshop, here | jumper: H&M, similar here | shoes: asos, here | bag: mulberry | lipstick: MAC craving | nails: topshop on the blink

a fur coat in april? i wish it wasn’t so, but it’s still freezing out there and i for one cannot tolerate the cold. shouldn’t we all be swanning around in blazers and little jackets by now? a pair of shorts, even with tights, would be lovely too. as much as i do love my winter clothes (self confessed jumper hoarder up in here), the spring/summer section of my wardrobe is wishing it could see the light of day. i guess we’ll be stuck like this for a little while yet. so, it’s good job i adore this coat, even if i never know what to wear with it. it’s so warm and it was a gift from my bro-in-law’s nana (she bought it in the 1930’s, we think), so i didn’t have to pay an obscene amount for it on ebay. score.

i’m hugely disappointed with that topshop nail polish as it started chipping pretty much as soon as i applied it. i decided to see if it would ‘peel off’ as it claims and it does, but it takes a layer of your nails with it resulting in them looking horrible. the colour itself is lovely, but everything else about it completely lets it down.

also, my bag never photographs properly. in reality, it matches perfectly to MAC craving lipstick, like a berry plum colour. but in photos it looks really red. i know this isn’t really important, but it’s so pretty in person and i need to wear it more.

anyways, enough complaining, i have an absolute crap load of work to get done as i’ve left everything too late as always. STRESS.
