April OOTD


I always find this time of year a slightly odd season to dress for, it's either freezing cold or extremely sunny, there is no in between. I always find my self dressing a bit diverse or what I like to call it "Autumn Meets Spring". Today it was a typical rainy day so I decided to bring out the burgundy and my new favourite coat. Before I go into my look, I'm trying to improve the quality and content of my blog so I'm trying out new things like using a better quality camera for my photos. Let me know if you have any tips on how I can improve, it would be a massive help! 






Coat // New Look
Black Top // Unknown
Skirt // Thrifted
Bag // Calvin Klein
Flats // Primark 

I have been a little bit obsessed with this skirt since I bought it a few weeks ago! I thrifted it from a local charity store in Nottingham, it's amazing what you can find! The only issue is that because my legs are so long, it looks shorter than it actually is. Shout out to the tall girls who face this problem daily! I paired it with a simple black top so nothing could clash with the plaid coat and added my simple black CK bag, I was going for a effortless but stylish look! I opted for a pair of flats over my usual heels to tie it all together!
