Okay, okay, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking 'wow Lauren, where on earth did you get the idea to buy a pastel pink coat? That's so original of you, I haven't seen that on anyone.' I KNOW GUYS BUT THEY'RE JUST REALLY NICE OKAY? I hadn't planned on hopping on that trend bandwagon but when I saw this one in Matalan I just had to buy it, its the perfect lightweight spring coat. The only thing I'd say is that you need to size down on this bad boy because it is pretty damn roomy. 

I've teamed it with another sheep-like purchase, although in my defence I bought this lip print jumper from Primark before I saw it on half the blogosphere, so lets just go with the idea that I'm too on trend for words okay guys? 

The cutesy Heidi braids and sugary pink coat could have looked a little too Disney Princess so I added a bit of edge with these tough buckled military style boots which are my favourite thing to wear at the moment because they're ridiculously comfortable and I like the biker chic twist they give to an outfit. I'd never have guessed they were from Shoe Zone if I'd seen them on someone before, they've really progressed from the cheap and cheerful school shoe scene and there's some brilliant bargain high street trends to pick up there if you take a look!


  1. I love the pink coat on you (and the other hundreds of people..;)) ha and also kitty climbing over the little fence what a doll! I think if I could wear baby pink I would have snapped this up, but sadly I'd look a little on death's door, so instead I shall live it through you xx

  2. I don't blame you for picking up a pink coat, they look so good :) I love your boots too :) xx

  3. You look very cute, even the kitten thinks so! I love your boots, Shoe Zone is actually pretty good these days (although I'm fairly certain I had a stylish pair of clogs from there when I was little!). xxx

  4. I love your coat! I always find pastels hard to wear but this looks gorgeous :)
    xxElise -

  5. Ah I'm so jealous you have a pink coat I'm still in love with pastel everything but every pink coat I have seen is so out of my price range, I'm still keeping my eye out for one though! You look awesome and super pretty hair too! X

  6. Those boots are awesome - very goth chic. Stephen :o)
