Hey everyone! I hope the start of 2014 is treating you all well. I'm sure we've all experienced a bit of the 'January blues' after the excitement of Christmas and New year being over so my way of curing those January blues is by going to the January sales! I popped out to town last week and picked up some great bargains (i.e.. more clothes that I don't need, ahem). I've been keen to get an oversized coat for a while now as they are everywhere at the moment and spotted this beauty at half price in Pimkie-it's 30% wool as well, amazing! It's going to keep me nice n toasty for the next few months but I'm sure I can take it out again in years to come, it's a timeless piece. I spotted this gorgeous jewel necklace in Promod (it was literally the first thing I saw when I walked in the shop, the wee magpie that I am) and the reduction was too good to say no to, there's no such thing as too much jewellery (there probably is but that's besides the point). Last of my bargains were these acid wash jeggings from Zara. I've never bought a pair before so I was a bit sceptical but I'm so pleased I did. They're identical to jeans but 10 times comfier! I also picked up this plain black collar shirt in Pimkie, which wasn't actually in the sales, but as I already have a white one and wear it very often, I thought it would be great to have it in black too as they can be worn with anything! And yes, that is a garden spade you see in the photos, it wasn't supposed to be there.

I hope you enjoyed todays post. Oh, I also reached 100 followers this week! It's such a great achievement considering I've only been running this blog for under a year, so thank you so much to you 100 (102 now, actually) lovely people for taking an interest in my page! I'm not sure why you do, but you do, so thank you!

I went back to school on Monday and it's been a bit rubbish to say the least! Buuut I am finishing school FOREVER in exactly 6 months from now (yes I am already counting down to this woooonderful event). This is an outfit I threw together ages ago and really wanted to snap this look as I think it's perfect for the chilly months of winter. I seem to put my fedora on in every photo, but I really can't help it, it just goes with everything plus I don't have many hats except this one (I hope that's a valid excuse...). It's still pretty cold outside so tights and jumpers are a must but I'm trying to put a spring in my step by wearing this lovely Topshop butterfly print dress I got on Ebay ages ago which adds a bit of girly-ness to my denim gilet I got from a carboot for 3€. I have spent my weekend with my friend Megan (who took these photos, thanks Megs!) watching Breaking Bad, eating scrambled eggs on toast and getting locked outside by accident while taking these photos, thanks for rescuing us Mum.

What have you been wearing this winter?
