The Girl In The Bowler Hat







Dress - H&M (old)
Jacket - Fashion Union
Necklace - H&M
Bag - Ebay
Shoes - Topshop
Ring - YSL
Watch - MK
Bowler Hat - H&M

I originally wanted to buy a tartan scarf this winter to add some character to a dull black outfit in need of some TLC. Instead of purchasing a scarf, what do I end up with...a jacket!! I never seize to amaze myself at how impractical I can be sometimes and the fact that I tend to buy on impulse, without thinking things through.  But in my defense *every shop-a-holic feels the need to justify their spending* when I saw this coat on the Fashion Union website I fell in love. At the time they were also offering an extra 30% off everything plus free delivery so I ended up getting this jacket for about £22 which I thought was a bit of a bargain. It is probably not as practical as a scarf but I think it is important you love what your wearing especially if it is making any sort of statement. Usually I like to wear this jacket with a denim shirt underneath and a statement necklace of course, but this also works to add a little something to a plain black dress. My Topshop shackles have made another appearance and I cannot stress how much I love them. They are so comfy and now the snow has melted away I can finally wear them...yipeee! I don't love these as much as my JC's but they are definitely up there with the power shoe. What are your thoughts on tartan? Yay or Nay?

  14. I really need to get myself a brighter blazer, I have my trusty black one which I've had for about 4 years now, and I recently bought a white one which I'm far too scared to wear! But I could do with a colour, like you say to brighten up my standard black outfits. I DID have a tartan scarf that I bought in the Boxing day sales - however I seem to have lost it and I am absolutely kicking myself for! I loved it so much!

    1. Oh no that's such a shame about your scarf! I hope you manage to find it. The white blazer sounds lush, you should definitely wear it with some denim shorts in the summer ;-)
