Boots: Matalan*

One of the things that I love most about the cold weather is that it becomes pretty much universally acceptable to wear a scarf or snood round the clock, inside or outside. This wine coloured Matalan number is so cozy and such a gorgeous colour, though my sister did recently get her hands on a faux fur version which has ignited a touch of the green eyed monster in me!

I'm slowly but surely building up a collection of striped tops in a number of colours and styles because they're just so classic and easy to wear and they pretty much go with any type of outfit. I usually team this one with a pair of jeans or denim shorts but this time I thought I'd go for something a bit different and dug out this wet look skirt and my beautiful Missguided chain embellished fedora. Slightly less 'French' than denim and ballet flats but equally lovely in my opinion!

When this post goes live I'll be in the middle of my new job as a teaching assistant so fingers crossed everything goes well! I really hate being the new girl in any situation and I'm so nervous that I'm going to end up with no mates and eating my lunch in the loo Mean Girls style. Lets hope not though eh?


  1. I love a good Breton tee, there is just something about them which means they go with anything.

  2. I love this outfit Lauren! I've got a couple of striped tops in my wardrobe. I just need to get myself a Pleather skirt now! Then we could be twins!
