You know you've run out of blog titles when you blatantly just start naming the colours in your outfit, amiright?! Maybe its the cold, may be my brains tired, who knows. Either way, i was pretty happy with the simple little outfit.

This outfit is a nice mesh of old(er) pieces and new. I had been after a nice khaki parker for a while but, not actually needing another coat i had put it on the back burner. That was until Eilidh posted that Internacionale had a grand 40% off discount code (which she kindly shared with me! and she had bough the black parker. So, i thought it'd be rude not too right? Turns out its exactly what i was looking for! Its hardly left my back since and was only a fraction of the usual cost.  The zip back sweater was also a fairly recent sale buy from New Look, its casual/smartness was appealing.

And yep, apologies but the coated skinny jeans are back once again.. its just so hard to stay away from them when they add the perfect amount of "edge" to any outfit, hhaaha! :-D 
So things are gaining momentum again over here, its been back to work, all the tasty food has almost all been eaten so we are back to healthy stuff and my blogging routine seems to be somewhat back to normal (lets hope thats not a speaks to soon moment) After a nice break i kinda relish in having my routine back (sort of). 

Jeans, Sweater, boots, Scarf: New Look
Coat: Internacional
Bag: Primark

I'm hoping to do a couple of re cap posts from the last year. 2013 saw quite a bit of a style transition for me so could be quite interesting to look back and see it evolve. 
I've also been thinking about making myself some goals. but instead of the general New years resolutions i was thinking more of a 30 before 30 list, because well, Decemeber  2014 sees me turn the big 3-0! (say it aint so!!!)  
I've already started my list but have a few more to go and some more thought to put in, but i would love to share that with you all soon.
So any New Years eve plans folks? We are staying up with the big kids and playing games.. should be fun if last year is anything to go by. (also note to self, do not let hubby be the banker in word..CHEAT!!)



  1. I love the coat and boots! x

  2. What a vamp you are with your red nails, leopard, and black hair! Love it.
    Those coats are really in right now here in Finland, I'm thinking I'll really want one come spring. I love how they lend a big of edge and toughness, while still being casual and neutral enough to wear with most outfits.

  3. You are looking absolutely gorgeous my dear!!

  4. I think the 40% code ( FFAM40 ) is still active - I used it last week for a pair of boots. The khaki version is lovely - and isn't it just SO cosy? I practically cook in mine! Haha xo

  5. Beautiful as always! The brown and black really work well together. I know what you mean about missing the daily routine. Even though I don't necessarily want to go back to work, it does mess you all up when your schedule is off.

  6. Hey, I named my post after a color today too! Love this coat, and your hair looks glorious as well. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday. xo

  7. Lovely outfit, especially the coat and boots. Great look for autumn!

  8. I like coated jeans. I'll probably be wearing them when they are totally passe. That zip-back sweater is so cool. You look wonderful.


  9. Stopping by from Funday Monday Blog Hop! I'm never really sure what I should title my blog posts. My food blog is much easier to title :) I'm okay with coated skinnies all week long, they're so fun. I also wear mine all the time.

  10. Rachel this is all kinds of adorable. I love the new coat! :)

  11. That olive green jacket looks perfect with your leopard print scarf. It's like they were made to be worn together!
    I stayed in for New Year's Eve and had a small celebration with a couple friends. I'd rather avoid the crowds if at all possible! I hope yours was great!


I love to hear your thoughts! Thank you for commenting :)
