What I Wore: Breathe Me.

This trench coat is one of my favourite Primark finds, I'm not sure when I got it but it must have been a few years ago now. Trench coats are definitely the most flattering style for my body shape and I'm feeling the need to invest in a couple more, I think a nice navy colour would be perfect, especially if it had little touches of gold on it too. Pretty!



Coat: Primark, Dress: Love Label, Cardigan: Boohoo, Tights: Matalan.
Shoes: ASOS, Bag: Disaster Designs Dandy Bag purchased from Yumi
Necklace: Sailboat, Ahoy! Heart Ring: Scape Jewellery, Ruby Ring: Studio59.
Eyes: 17 Wild Curls Mascara - horrible, don't purchase!

Venturing outside to take outfit photographs is probably one of the best choices I've made regarding the ol' blog but oh my gosh, something embarrassing, silly or just plain ridiculous happens every time! This time as I was merrily posing away an old man walking his dog came up to my boyfriend and said 'ooh no no no, this isn't right, she should be in a bikini and posing in the river. That would look nice that would'. Cue nervous laughter and hello red face & a quick exit. Oh how I hate feeling awkward and that conversation was probably the epitome of awkward. I hope these things happen to other people too...

Just wanted to quickly say a huge thank you to everyone that takes the time to leave a comment! Now that blogger has finally added a reply function making it easier to see my replies, I'm aiming to reply to every single comment, even if it's just to say a simple thank you. I figured that if you take a few seconds to type something to me, it's only right that I do the same!

I hope you're all having a lovely Monday. I'm going to hopefully finally film a new video for my YouTube channel (yay!) & make a start on my next University assignment (not so yay!). Lots of love!

xoxo

  2. Oh, that's a pretty trench coat! And I agree, I think a navy one would be very nice indeed!

  3. I absolutely live in my spring trench from H&M. It just fits perfectly over every outfit and instantly makes me feel smarter and more ready to take things on! xo

  4. I think navy coat with gold buttons would be perfect for you - sailor style! X

  6. You look gorgeous!!!

    I can relate to your embarrassment my dear!!!! some people are just so weird! Not surprised you went red! I would have. I was in La Senza a few weeks ago looking at their sale underwear and some guy came up to me and said 'you should be looking at red, it would suit you more' ooohhh my face went the colour of the underwear he was on about! Haha. xx

  9. I had this trent a couple of years ago too. I wore my to death at uni. It's very thin so it shows off all the good bits rather than pad out a figure.

    Your jewelry designs are lovely - you've created a really cute style. It's good that you've found a direction.

  19. I have 17 Wild Curls mascara as I thought people had said it was good, you're right, it's not! I've been wearing daily just to use it up, but it does nothing other than make them look a bit blacker! I love your bag! xx

  22. Posing outside is hard! I had my engagement photo shoot here in Brighton on a busy Saturday a couple of weeks ago, and we had some odd looks and people commenting. AWKWARD! I think I look a bit odd in some of the pics, but i'm putting it down to people watching!! I love the dress and the lippy tho!! Good Luck with the assignment, and look forward to your vid! xxBelle du Brightonxx

  26. I have found that as soon as i pull out my camera to take some snaps, curtains twitch and people become very aware that i'm there (even though i'm innocently shooting scenery or friends etc.) I get people make comment all the time too. I wouldn't mind, but i'm rather shy and would be quite happy for people not to notice at all, but it doesn't seem to be the way when shooting!

    I am really enjoying your new outfit photos, love that your shooting them outdoors and the quality is so good too :)

    This comment is already far too long, but i was wondering if you had wrote a post about studying with the open university at all? I'm really considering taking up on one of their degree courses in the future as actually going to uni full time really isn't for me!

    1. People are super nosey haha! Thank you so much, that means a lot. I haven't written a post about the OU, I don't really think I've been studying with them long enough to judge but what I will say is that each module is different, you have a different tutor for each one and some are more organised/better than others! xoxo

  27. I remember you posting about this dress a while back and bought the pink version :D It's really pretty and flattering!

    The old man story sounds really creepy, but also kinda funny! My friend told me how last week, when she was on the bus, an older guy got on and sat behind her. When he got up to get off, he handed her a piece of paper saying 'you dropped this', and he'd made a weird drawing of her! D: Hopefully she'll never see him again..

    1. Aww yay, I love the pink version too! Oh wow, that's really creepy, definitely nope she never bumps into him again! xoxo

  28. Love this outfit and all the little parts to it! I love your shoes, the t-bar style I adore. I think I need a pair :P Also love your pair I have a wallet but the same people and now I really would love a bag to match, too OTT though maybe? I dunno. Anyway lovely outfit, and I really love the setting too :)

  41. Hey Jennie!

    Have been inspired to dig out my dress like yours after seeing it again in this post... It was your original post that drove me to buy it in the first place, such a pretty dress! It looks lovely with the cardigan, I feel a sneaky pre-birthday purchase coming on ;)
