For a while I've wanted to do an outfit post as I find that clothes take on a whole different shape and form when worn. Whenever I see this coat of dreams, the River Island pink swing coat, I'm dreaming of
liquorice allsorts! It exudes winter princess vibes with the faux fur collar and I fell for it, love at first sight!
It has the softest, silkiest interior and is ever so warm! I went for a larger size than normal so I can wear my thickest, cosiest jumpers underneath, but I don't think I will need them! The oversized feel makes me feel so cosy and protected and I feel the urge to don my twirliest skirt
technical term and go ice skating.
I have this thing for collars. I love to browse Pinterest and save all the cute patterned, embroidered and scalloped collars I can find to my Cute Wearables board for future reference. I often like to wear pinafores in winter as I can layer them easily. I swear my wardrobe is mimicking my old school uniform haha!
I definitely like to use my coat to add a pop of colour to my outfit, especially in winter when the landscape is grey and cold! I find that it really accentuates an all black outfit, with a LBD for the evening and is such a cute day coat too. Winter is definitely made sweeter by donning a candy pink coat
and adorable collar!
It retails for £65 which, compared to other coats, is quite cheap but expensive for me haha. I think this only makes me treasure it more and I've justified it as a good investment for winter
if it were summer I'd still buy it. I've layered this Primark pinafore over a second hand collar dress and they look so cute together, as well as being warm and toasty. I love the oversized handkerchief style collar, so quirky!
My face on this one! Realistic portayal of photo taking as my Grama was trying to style me and she has her own fashion and decorating ideas ie involving a bob haircut and fleece combo. No Gma!
My goal is to share my favourite outfits and showcase different ways of incorporating period dress (I adore Victorian era fashion!) and vintage pieces in to a modern day style outfit. Let me know what you think! Do you have a favourite winter coat? Are you lusting after one in the shops? ♡
