stars and stripes

coat; new look
scarf; river island
top; topshop

The lovely Bee from Vivatramp featured me in her bloglight this week and I have gained some new followers so I'd just like to say hello to you all and thank you to Bee!

I mentioned in my first post that I was trying to find the perfect winter coat. I can see it in my mind and it resembles an £80 duffle coat from Topshop. I can't imagine spending that much money on a coat though, so I settled for this camel coat from New Look instead.

I also picked up the stars and stripes scarf from River Island that I had been lusting over for a few months. It's so warm and matches my new coat nicely, love it!

I can't believe it's Sunday already! I finally got my car fixed yesterday after it refused to heat up for over a month and I'm so glad I did as the past few days have been so cold. It actually got below 15°C in work yesterday and even with a coat and gloves on my fingers were too numb to type! I woke up this morning to a blanket of snow and it has been a blizzard for most of the day so we now have about 6 inches and it looks so pretty outside! I'm recovering from the cold though so I've opted for a lazy day on the sofa rather than going outside and getting ill again which explains the messy bedhead!

I don't have many plans for this week. I'm hoping to catch up with one of my college friends tomorrow and then I've got tickets to see The Drums tomorrow night. Fingers crossed I can get into town!
