Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: what i wore, YesStyle outerwear, winter coat refresh
Western shirt with rose gold poppers, c/o Levi's®; Burgundy knit, c/o BANK Fashion; Leather look leggings, H&M; Coat, YesStyle; Black KATZ2 cut out shoes, Topshop.

Apologies for the phone snap, I'm writing a quick on-the-go post that I’m writing on the train and stealing Wi-fi to upload! (I passed up Sunday’s usual outfit shooting session to decorate my house and basically lie down a LOT after a really busy week.)

Last week I took advantage of a pretty good 20% off deal that YesStyle had on and snapped up another new winter coat. I know, I know… how many winter coats can I possibly wear?! Truth be told? A lot. England is colder than I can ever recall this year. I even bought gloves. Albeit touchscreen ones so I don’t sacrifice Instagram for photo scrolling’ and those infamous filters.

The coat itself is the 45SEVEN Contrast Trim Single Button Coat. A classic black and grey number that lends itself to a relaxed military boyfriend blazer hybrid, it ticks all the boxes for a more grown-up look. Ya know I love my scallop edged coat but it was getting a bit too twee alongside my, er, scallop edged clothes. The price is… about right for its’ quality, I’d say. £78.87 pre discount, it’s the ideal bump-you-up coat to tide you over in the long winter. And YesStyle are offering 15% off at the moment - I swear I'm not being sponsored ;)

Underneath, I’m wearing my Levi’s denim shirt and burgundy knit from BANK Fashion, with my leather-look leggings by H&M. Easy, fuss-free dressing for a relatively mild December Tuesday.

By the way, I’m still experiencing heart palpitations at the thought of it being 2014 in less than a month. (Christmas, please stay with me forever.) However 2014 already looks like a crackin’ year for me - I shall spill all soon! Time to get my evening fix of Man Repeller and crack on. Until tomorrow… x
