[Outfit] Back to School Blues

Hello from 2014!  Gosh, where did last year go? It's like September swallowed up October and November and ran through December at full speed... Yesterday was my first day back properly in the office, and blimey it hit me with a bang.  We were all fairly slow, it's fair to say - kept going with frequent coffee runs and pointing out the saucy bits in the new Beyonce album. On one of the coffee runs I bribed Sarah to take some pictures of my new cable knit (a steal in the Whistles sale here). I'd been after one for months (even set up a Pinterest board) so am thrilled I found it...

The other bits are some of my favourites, the coat was a gift from my friend Geneva who gave it to me when she moved to sunnier climates, but I found a similar Maje one here.  I've had the jeans for ages and have been meaning to mention them, they're by a brand called Noisy May (who are on ASOS) and are the perfect boyfriend jean. I lived in them over the summer and they're warm enough for winter too. They've got that 'baggy but fitted' thing nailed to perfection - plus they're now in the sale, win!

The bag is from Anya Hindmarch, and was also a present from a friend last year, I love it. I've tried to cut down on my leopard print buys but I always find them creeping into the closet, the boots were a purchase from Sam Edelman in the sales last year too, they're now only £54 on Matches! When you're wearing a really simple outfit like this prints can finish it off quite nicely. My hair is all courtesy to the geniuses at Sassoon Salons on the Kings Road - I'm loving it at the moment, although missing my really long hair a little...

All in all, this outfit did make my day feel a little brighter. The jumper is so cosy and warm but not too stuffy (there is nothing worse than a 'wool sweat' in the winter) and the boots popped a little bit of life into an otherwise boring outfit... This weekend (which cannot come soon enough) I'm going to be clearing out my wardrobe of everything I didn't wear in 2013 (new years resolution), spoiling Lopez (he stayed with my parents whilst I was away and I missed him so much) and catching up with Lucy over hot chocolates and gossips. What have you got planned?

Happy New Year darling!
You look so gorgeous here; all that South African sunshine clearly did you well! And I love the fisherman jumper (yay, you got it at last!) and leopard on you.
