What I Wore #99

Happy Saturday my lovelies!
Like everyone else I'm struggling to adjust to this abrupt switch to autumn chills and damp and dark days again. It seems like a lifetime has passed since I was having lunches on our balcony in the sun or drinking frappuccinos and complaining about sunburn, yet in reality it's not even been two weeks! My wardrobe is equally struggling to yield any warmer options as it seems I only own summer dresses or heavy jumpers, neither of which is suitable for the in-between weather we have at the moment! One thing that happens every autumn without fail for me is the panicked hunt for yet another season-appropriate coat. I don't ask much - just somewhat fitted, warm, a bit jazzy with a hood (ain't nobody got time for umbrellas when you're walking to work in a rainy gale). The last few winters I've used a combination of coats and hats to stay dry but this year I've hit the jackpot, courtesy of New Look.

This lovely navy number ticks all my boxes - snug enough to keep out the cold, with a snuggly hood to keep my barnet frizz-free(ish). I've had a bit of a strange relationship with New Look over the years, I used to buy all my clothes there but as time passed the number of items I fell in love with each season diminished more and more until I simply stopped venturing inside when on one of my shopping sprees. Recently though, I've been spotting pieces online that have really struck my fancy and when I saw this coat I just had to have it!

Today's dreary weather also meant I could dig out the awesome Mighty boots from Topshop - I snaffled these up at the beginning of the summer (at a fraction of the price, cheers eBay) and have been patiently waiting for it to get cold and wet enough to wear them out. They're super comfy, super cosy and look rather nice with my textured jeggings, although I'm also planning on rocking them with dresses and tights over the coming months as I put my ballet pumps to sleep for the winter...

I'm trying out new locations for photos now as well - this is Brentwood "cathedral" (although it does not resemble the cathedrals I'm used to, i.e Canterbury, Luxembourg, France...) and it was reasonably empty today so I got Jon to snap some pics while on the way back from our weekly Starbucks date. I still feel a bit silly posing when there's a lot of traffic passing, but hey ho, the light's better than it is in our flat! My hair's responding in its usual way to the drizzle and damp so I'm thinking I may give up on the old ghds until the sun next rears its head. If you have any recommendations for your fave products for curly hair please let me know, I'm going to need all the help I can get!

 Love Dani xoxo
