outfit

layering up

 Wearing: H&M hair elastic, Cici blouse, Doury crystal necklace, Bardot boyfriend coat, vintage bag, Forever 21 jeans, Betts boots

A little bit of muted colour fun. Very rarely do I dress in such dull shades as I’m always one for all things bright and cheery. I really don’t know what I was feeling when this mix was put together but I sort of like the look. Melbourne has been quite cold lately so a really warm coat is always a necessity here! I’m still on the hunt another perfect winter coat. I bought this coat a couple of months ago though after wearing it non-stop in London, I now feel like it’s a little bit dull in colour for me. So far, I have just one coat that I am completely, utterly in love with – my dark orange coat from a couple of posts ago. So I’m still on the look out for another and have been using this “need” as an excuse to trawl the shops online. Next week, I’m going to be having dental surgery to have all four of my wisdom removed (*cries*) so I think I shall have plenty of time in bed to go shopping online. Feeling delirious on anaesthetics/painkillers would probably also speed up the justification journey to “check out”!

    I like it! The tweed coat with those purple suede booties is enough colorful for the cold and the printed button down is lovely too!

      @lovecharliej:disqus  I’ve always been one to stay away from darker colours. I think it must be because I have so much black hair that I feel like it’s enough for my outfit hehe

    Oh no! I kinda get your feeling. I gotta have dental surgery to remove my wisdom teeth as well (although I’m delaying it as long as possible). Good luck! And although you’re not that big of a fan of your coat, I still kinda like it (; And the boots are pretty, me want!

    Your coat is lovely, but the shoes are even better. Good luck with your wisdom teeth removal. I hope you don’t get too much bruising (it’ll only last a week max and nothing concealer can fix) and for that week jelly, custard, yoghurt, ice-cream and mash potato is the way to go. :)

    Maybe the colors are not bright, but still, I love the outfit !  The shirt, the boots and the coat are a very good combination in purple/red shades.
    And, oh, yes, these shoes are awesome, and the necklace too.

    Kisses from France !
