Resisting the call of the coat.

In the UK, it is definitely starting to get colder and wearing a coat is definitely something I'm going to have to wear soon. However, like the blog title suggests, I am resisting it and am either layering up instead or wearing this over sized cardigan. The cardigan was given to me from my grandma and is just as good at keeping me warm as a coat.
Tee, Shoes, Tights (Topshop) Skirt (Oasis) Belt (River Island) Cardigan (Grandmas) Scarf (Hong Kong) Hair Bow (H&M)
I seem to have forgotten over summer (what summer?) that I do indeed own some nice coats and jackets for winter so I will definitely be needing to fight into my wardrobe and dig them out from hibernation. I just can't be bothered!

My grandparents and aunts are visiting again from Hong Kong and made my studying a little more bearable with lots of cute Hello Kitty stationary! Oh and no, I'll never grow up!They also bought me MORE magazine which isn't as amazing as Vivi but still pretty good. It has a great little booklet on hair and another on bento. Yesss!
...and there is an article about Arashi (see my chosen music video on the side bar) who I can't help but love. They make me smile but I do wish I could read Japanese...no matter the pics will have to do!
I've also just featured in Chicisimo along with a bunch of other bloggers including Nic from She's dressing up which is quite fun. The site is a bit like a street style blog and they choose all their pics from bloggers. I'm told it will be more interactive in the future but do go and check it out!

  31. I love it when family visits and it's always nice when they bring you stuff. The magazines look great and I'm sure you can pull some inspiration from them.

    Love your outfit, Winnie. Esp the oversized sweater from your grandma. It goes perfectly with your outfit! And your purple scarf is lovely as well.

  32. yeah its getting colder and it won't be long til coat time. I'd really like a nice new coat this year. I always find it difficult to choose a coat, maybe because its such a big investment and it has to go with everything! I love the idea of a warm cardi, yours is great! Also love the hello kitty stickers! I'll never really grow up either! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm not sure which I adore more...the cardigan or that fuzzy scarf. They're both so enchanting in their own way. And as for the Hello Kitty stationary...it's too cute for words. I will never grow up either, I suppose - I have loads of it myself! It makes schoolwork so much more fun! :)

  34. You look adorable! Is that scarf crocheted? I love it!
    Have a great day!
