A randomly-but-only-to-be-expected blustery day in England day calls for a demure outfit of jeans and a jumper. The wind and rain had me awake at about 4am according to my trusty new Sleep Cycle phone app! It was relatively funny to see everyone's 'ohmagadz the world is ending!!' Facebook statuses: my news feed never fails to amuse. Enough of the weather garble, I wore this to meet my friend Natasha for a long overdue coffee date this morning, and it kept me nearly warm with an added scarf (this one) and my usual Topshop duffle coat.

(Fan-stitch knitted jumper, Unnamed via Hong Kong;
Peach sheer shirt, New Look;
Heattech top - underneath, Uniqlo;
Corduroy jeans/leggings, River Island;
Aggie boots, ASOS;
Pumpkin carriage necklace, c/o Ever Ours.)

I feel seriously girly and a little too cutesy in this jumper and shirt combination, but I really like it with my new favourite jeans. This is probably one of my favourite outfits that I've worn in a little while actually, it's seriously comfy and any outfit that features my most overworn shirt is a good one in my books! I'm also in half a mind to permanently borrow this knitted top from my sister - clothes always feel 100% better when they're not yours. Had to wear my Aggie boots to toughen the look up a little, although I wore my flat boots to town in the torrential rain!

Can't believe it took me all Winter to finally try out Costa's black forest hot chocolate, I'm probably going to be in mourning when their Christmas menu stops running. I've always preferred Starbucks or Pret a Manger by way of overpriced, commercialised coffee goodness, but Costa is as good as it gets back at home! Indulged in a huge cup this morning while catching up with Natasha about potential Gossip Girl return scenarios - two weeks to go! - and other little tidbits.

  3. There's something I love about a simple jumper-and-jeans combo, and yours is perfect! I am absolutely loving the carriage necklace too- really finishes the look off nicely.

  19. this outfits lovely! oh god people definitely need to shut up about the weather. its WINTER. it tends to be absolutely miserable/windy/wet.

  31. That outfit is gorgeous, I'm now desperately on the hunt for that blouse and a jumper that looks similar, as I think going all the way to Hong Kong would be a bit much..xx

    ReplyDelete
  32. I agree...perhaps my favourite of your outfits!

    xx

    ReplyDelete
  33. Aw thanks Georgie! Such an adorable necklace, isn't it?!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hurry! I'm in half a mind to get one tomorrow as well ;) Or I'll just invest in cherry syrup to make my own at home, then no-one can judge me with the amount of whipped cream I like! Aw thank you, the only places I can think of are www.coco-fashion.com and maybe Hong Kong based eBay shops, my sister bought this in Hong Kong a few weeks ago! xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks! I don't "do" tucked in or cinched in hahaha. Yes. Go and buy one before it's too late! (That sounded more dramatic than I meant, haha!) x

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you Erin! Oh gosh, it's a miracle, my sleep has seriously been much better since I started using it, I was skeptical at first but it really does work! xx

  39. the layering is so perfect! :)

  41. this jumper and shirt combination is just wonderful x

    ReplyDelete
  42. Cute outfit - I love the necklace :)

    I tried out the Praline Mocha in Costa but that was a bit too sweet for me - might need to try that hot chocolate instead whilst it's still around! xx

    ReplyDelete
  43. I saw that necklace on ever ours and wondered how big it was, a little bigger than I expected but so gorgeous, even more so now I've seen it on you! Love this simple but pretty outfit Michelle :) xxx

    All of your most loveliest clothing is from Hong Kong! Not fair :(:( oooh that costa drink sounds so lovely too :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love your collar/sweater combination, it's very Blair Waldorf (in a good way!). I think it's been the 'end of the world' for about four days according to tumblr, twitter and facebook statuses. Silly! Hope you're doing well, Michelle! X

    ReplyDelete
  47. Awesome outfit - especially with the addition of the necklace! I only just watched the last Gossip Girl online today and my jaw dropped at the end. Make the next one come!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Lovely lovely outfit! I'm such a fan of layering so this is right up my street! Your necklace is absolutely precious! I'm looking foward to seeing GG back on our (laptop) screens too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. This outfit is absolutely stunning. I one day hope to be able to pull together outfits like you do. I am in awe.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Your knitted top works so well with the peach top, as well as your adorable necklace! Very cute for a coffee date, indeed! Also -- the winds were super crazy here, too. Blew down a wall near my place :/

  54. This is outfit is SO LOVELY! You look so comfy in it and the colours of the tops are so pretty together. I'll defs be looking in New Look for that shirt x

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love that jumper, especially the pockets. have just brought a similar-ish vest top so am hoping it will look as cool as this...fingers crossed.

    And I am addicted to gingerbread lattes at Costa, which I have mentioned on my blog far too many times, and am just hoping that they will not disappear, they are soooo good!

    Oooh, love this with the jeans. I don't think it's OTT girly, with the collar a bit sharper as opposed to a peter pan or rounded style, it stops that.

    The hot choc sounds epic, I'm currently nursing my rocket-fuel-in-a-travel-mug morning coffee which i bring into work from home. mmmmmmm ROCKETFUEL!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I can't believe you've only just tried black forest hot chocolate!! I know how you feel about when it disappears tho :-((
    Love the outfit tho, wish I could be as put together as you "/ xoxo

  58. Costa is always my go to due to the fact I can't stand coffee or hot chocolate and I don't think starbucks do tea, but if they do it'll probably be to rich for my blood. :P

    The jumper is awesome and layers are great for this weather as it's still very nippy! xx

  60. I preferred the Praline Mocha in Starbucks, something not quite right about Costa's version!

  61. Aw thanks Shope! ASOS still have the boots in at the moment, so keep an eye out for a discount code and splurge on them, SO worth it, they're my favourites (:

  62. Oww I know ): So cheap and cheerful, and more 'me' than the likes of Topshop though!
