Lesson Learnt

Posted in Daily Outfits.

Yesterday I ventured out into the deep British wintertime in a sleeveless gilet. I was cold. Today, I’ve learnt my lesson…

Vintage wool coat, Reiss wool jumper via charity shop, Primark jeans, Ravel heels c/o Sarenza, Lauren Elan necklace, Zara bag

At the weekend I nipped to my favourite charity shops for a mooch around and came out with two absolute triumphs. The coat is by Italian designer Marella and is pure wool – the slouchy fit is perfect for wrapping up against the wind, and all for just £9.99. The grey jumper is the kind of thing I’d shell out for – it’s a basic shade, meaning it goes with everything, it’s a relaxed fit and it’s beautifully made in pure wool. I’m guessing this beauty would cost me around £80 brand new in Reiss, but from my local branch of Mind? £6.50!

Lauren Elan ‘Olivia’ necklace

I love tough pieces with a feminine edge – these amazing heels by Ravel have cute ruffle details to balance the studs, while my new Lauren Elan necklace mixes dainty diamante with rough rocks and gold chain. Gorgeous.

So that’s me – what are you wearing today?

I went out today. Didn’t bother with a coat. I thought; mildest Winter we’ve had on record, crocus blooming in the garden, blue tits building in the nest box, Jen didn’t wear a coat yesterday & she’s further North than me…

I was ruddy freezing. And it’s partly your fault! Teehee! x


Oh Jo! I am very sorry for encouraging such reckless behaviour. Hope you’re now snuggled up with a blanket and a cuppa! 🙂


I found it weird too, Nicki! Hadn’t heard from them in years and don’t think they have any shops… but they’re one of the brands sold on Sarenza so guess they’re still going in some capacity! 🙂


Looking lovely and snug today! I did get a little mother-like when I saw you braving the cold in a gilet. Always wear a coat, Jen!


Will you please stop posting such lovely jewellery? My bank balance can’t take it. I can’t replace my dying laptop and buy necklaces.
Although, I did finally track down an amazing spiked necklace after coveting yours for so long. So I guess I owe you for that one.
I want that necklace now too though. Curse you.


loving the coat so much
