(Another) Casual Friday

 I'm becoming quite accustomed to having Casual Fridays here on the blog:) i guess by the end of the working week i am often in a jeans kinda place.  As a girl who lives in dresses and skirts 95% of the time, i quite enjoy these days.

 What i'm not happy about is the freezing cold, wet windy weather we're having right now. I know, i know, I'm British, i should be totally used to this... but c'mon! Its seriously freezing. I have packed away my big knit jumpers and i wish i hadn't now... it's that cold!Least i get few more weeks out of my beloved tights- i hate not wearing tights...:(

 So this weekend for me is going to be filled with boxes and packing. We are edging closer to the big move and i just want it done already. I want to be in the new house and settling in. It's been set back by another week so i am literally on tenterhooks now and filled with anxiety/excitement..
 Jeans & Bag: Next
Sweater: Ichi
Coat: Matalan
Boots: New Look

 Don't think there's really a lot to say about this outfit really is there? Comfy jeans, colourful sweater, bright scarf, duffel coat, fave boots and a walk in the woods. Simples :-)

 How are you spending your weekend?
If anyone would enjoy organising me and helping pack a gazillion boxes then by all means come on over... i make a nice cuppa tea;)
Oh and it's the last day to enter the Lotta From Stockholm Shoe Giveaway, make sure you're in!! Winner will be announced tomorrow.

  11. Great look, bright colours look so nice on you! And I'm feeling ya when it comes to the weather :)

  12. I love how you always look so colourful! xo

  13. I used to have a red duffel coat when I was little and absolutely hated parting with it. So I am on the look out for one for the slightly larger sized me. I love the way a red coat makes you feel on a drab day and yours looks so bright, cosy and uplifting. I wish the weather here in the UK would just warm up a bit though! Beautiful last shot

  14. Comfy clothes are the best in this weather. I'm wrapped up in my snuggly oversized fairisle cardi at the moment with the fire on. Happy!

  15. eurgh, moving. Not fun but so worth it. I love all the colours in this outfit,

  16. I always miss wearing tights when the weather gets hot too! They just add so much to an outfit and make remixing things so much easier. I really like your casual Friday outfits! You always look cute in your jeans!

  17. You always look so lovely and cheery! I adore this jumper, it looks super cute on you!
