Jessthetics / Great PlainsIf you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know that I love A: jumpsuits B: anything with a pattern, and C: clothes that feel like pyjamas. Luckily for me, this jumpsuit meets all three of these requirements! I’ve been wearing it non-stop this week (is that wrong?) for sewing, lounging, running errands and everything in-between. It’s super comfy and the cute print means that it looks like I made an effort. It’s from Great Plains who, I have to admit, I hadn’t previously heard of, but they do some great basics as well as having some really cute prints! When the sun comes out, my hair gradually starts to turn a cooper colour. It’s fun that you can see that in these pictures! I think the golden-hour sunlight is also lending a hand.

I took these photos in the countryside which is a 5 minute walk from my house. It really is beautiful up there in the evening light. I’ve mentioned it before (in this post!) but these fields are soon to be turned into housing estates. I’ll be sad when that happens, but until then I’d better make sure I take more walks and soak up the sunlight. My mum told me that one of the most beautiful places in the world is the English countryside on a perfect summers evening. You know, I think she might be right!

What I Wore: Blue Fur Forever

I’ve been dressing very lazily recently. It’s too cold to spend a long time getting ready in the morning, so I’ve just been wearing whatever top and trouser combination comes to hand. I’ve also been finding tights very irritating, which means that I haven’t worn a dress for ages. This is the perfect lazy morning outfit because it’s easy and warm but the fur coat makes me feel like I put some effort in.

I picked up my coat from the Guildford Car Boot sale. Car Boots tend to stop for the winter, but I’m excited for when they start-up again so I can go treasure hunting! I also think these earrings do a great job of jazzing up  my outfit – my friends bought them for me for my birthday last year and they’re glittery! I love glitter, especially at this time of year. I’ve blogged about these ASOS jeans before, and I’m still wearing them all the time. I wear them to my volunteering job every week!

You guys, it’s almost December! I love the run up to Christmas and I’ve already been drinking a lot of hot chocolate in preparation. I’m driving to Oxford tomorrow for my brother’s birthday, and I’m hoping to start my christmas shopping, even if some of it is for me… do you have any plans for the weekend? Has the cold been influencing your outfit choices? Happy Thursday 🙂

What I Wore: Oversized Wool Coat

I love the oversized wool coat trend, and I’ve been seriously jealous of the pink coats that have been everywhere on fashion blogs this autumn. I didn’t need to buy one of my own, since I inherited this beautiful grey wool coat! It’s super warm and chunky. I think it makes a statement by itself, so I kept the rest of my outfit simple and monochrome. I always wear colours so this is a bit different for me!

My necklace is from H&M and I bought it for my christmas ball at uni last year – I’m missing the christmas ball now I’m a graduate. Getting dressed up and having a posh meal was so much fun! My skirt is an old one from Primark. I don’t shop at Primark anymore, as I’m not sure it’s ethical but I still love this skirt. It goes with everything. I’m running low on winter shoes, and these are the boots that I wore throughout sixth form. I still love them, and it’s nice to know my taste hasn’t changed all that much in the last four years! The one new item in this post is my shirt. I think I’ve worn this shirt everyday this week (is that wrong? I hope not!) it is so comfy and it’s such a wardrobe staple!

Have you got a new coat this winter? Do you like oversized coats? I hope your week has been fabulous so far 🙂

What I Wore: A Bike Ride

When I was studying in York, I went everywhere on my bike. This bike belonged to my mum when she was at university in the 80s. It’s rusty and it only has one working gear but it’s red and white and so pretty and I love it! Until recently it also had a wicker basket, but it has become tatty from carrying my books around for years. I really miss cycling every day so I decided to try cycling in the countryside around my house. It was fun, if a little hilly! This vintage dress is the perfect cycling dress because it’s loose and long and heavy enough to stay put!

This dress is such a great throw-on-and-go dress, and it’s lovely and comfy and warm – perfect for autumn! I tried to keep make my hair and make-up a little more seventies to match my dress – I exaggerated my usual small cat eye and wore my favourite daytime red lipstick with my hair down.

Hopefully I’ll get some more cycling in this Autumn. Maybe I’ll be brave enough to cycle the four miles into town next time I need to do some shopping! Do you ever cycle to places?
