What I Wore | 50 Shades of Beige

As regularly mentioned, one of my pet hates is poor quality photos, sighh. But, it is winter and winter does not equate to pretty photos (at least not with my camera). I really must learn to stop starting every blog post with the same complaint though, I am sorry! (But if you guys have any tips, I will love you.)

My boyfriend's very lovely mother donated this scarf to me and, oh gosh, I love it! I can't help but think that it was just made to go with this beige coat; the colours match perfectly. Keeping in line with the beige/neutrals colour scheme (not black/white for once, gasp!),  I teamed these with this Zara playsuit. This is basically like wearing the biggest, loosest, comfiest pyjamas and requires no thinking about what to wear with it, perfect for those nothing-to-wear days! Finally, I added some dark lipstick, burgundy ankle boots (as always) and a super delicate choker necklace to complete the look.

Playsuit - Zara - £30 (ish)
CoatPrimark - £23
Scarf - Mulberry - £?
Ankle boots - H&M - £29.99
Choker - Miss Selfridge - (part of a set)

PPS. Have you tried Primark's cosy tights? I'm wearing them here, they are lined with fleece... Oh gosh - to die for!!

What I Wore | Mom Jeans, Stripes and Tartan

When it comes to jeans, I tend to take a if-they-aren't-cutting-off-circulation-to-my-feet-they-aren't-for-me sort of approach. So, finally purchasing a pair of Mom jeans from Asos was kind of a big deal for me (even if they were called 'Slim Mom Jeans').  

I'm still undecided whether I do actually like them and my feelings towards them change daily. Pros so far is not having to do that skinny jean dance when getting dressed and that post-dinner food babies are hidden nicely by the high waist. Definite cons are that I cannot find anything to wear with them (other than this top which does in fact belong to my sister) and also you get kind of a breeze up your ankles when the wind blows.

Feel free to send some Mom jean outfit inspo photos my way, I am a girl in need of some fashion help! 

Jeans - Asos - £32
Top - Zara - £?
Ankle boots - Schuh - £45
Scarf - Primark - £? 
Scrunchie - Stitch By Lou B - £1.50
Belt - Asos - £6
Glitter socks - Topshop - £3.50
