Outfit Details: Coat – Topshop, Skirt – Topshop, Top – Primark, Hat – Primark, Shoes – Topshop

Ditching my typical fedora or bowler hat go-tos, I recently re-discovered this beret in the bottom of a drawer and couldn’t resist wearing it out. It was always a favourite of mine a few years back, and wearing it the other day reminded me why. Perfect for those days where it’s a little too blustery for other hats, I feel like it adds a nice twist to an otherwise boring outfit. Plus it makes me feel very Parisian chic and if it has any connection to a city I love swooning over pictures of (but still haven’t visited yet – boooo!) then I’m all for it!
A month or so back I referred to this leopard Topshop skirt in one of my posts, talking about how my queen, a certain Miss Chung, had been spotted wearing it over London Fashion Week and it had quickly vanished from the rails before I had a chance to pick up one. Slightly devastated, I spent weeks refreshing the Topshop website and by some miracle, my prayers were answered and a random one appeared in stock in my size – fate, right? A complete impulse purchase and one I do not regret at all, it’s become of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. Although it’s incredibly short (and I’m only a little over 5″) it’s nothing some thick black tights can’t really solve. These boots are a very recent purchase of mine, as they reminded me of a pair of Vagabond boots I’d had my eyes on for a long time, but at a fraction of the price. A little (much-needed) height, with a suitable heel (perfect for us clumsy folk) and the bonus of them being super comfy to walk in? I am in love.
