Remember when Alexa Chung got this coat and everyone went completely crazy over it? I somehow managed to snag it on eBay just before the craze hit. I contemplated selling it to cash in, but I don’t think I could part with it now. It doesn’t feel entirely ‘me’ but there’s something about it which still makes me feel a bit fierce. Think it’s the side that wishes I was covered in tattoos too.

These boots are a new favourite of mine, despite buying them from the Zara AW sale. I seem to have developed a fear of actually wearing new shoes incase they hurt, so they always get left for a few weeks until I pluck up the courage. These, however, have worked out pain free and they’re the perfect pointy chelsea boots. Like The Beatles vs an off duty supermodel. Or something like that…

Anyway, hope you had a lovely weekend (mine was filled with taking outfit photos) and that this week goes super quickly, as I’m crossing my fingers that it will so I can chill next Sat/Sun.

Remember you can win the rose gold GHD styler and hairdryer in my latest giveaway!
