JUMPER - ASOS 
BOOTS - H&M

CHOKER - RIVER ISLAND 

Rihanna has been on my Twitter TL for like weeks slaying her streetstyle lewks. I have found myself completely infatuated with incredibly monster size jackets shes been wearing, which are okay for the celebrity lifestyle that she leads but totally impractical to wear on a morning commute on the Jubilee Line. Not everyday Uber Code. So last week while I was in H&M Tottenham Court Road, I tried on several jackets that were just humongous and downright ugly and then came across a oversized black puffer jacket, it was perfect! This same jacket inspired my last post HERE.

I wasn't happy with the ones in the store so I decided to order it online and added a few more pieces into my shopping cart, including a white padded jacket that I hadn't seen in store. Honestly I only added this to my order for bants, I had no intention of keeping the jacket, I was just curious to see what it would look like on, as far as I was concerned the black quilted jacket, above, was a clear winner, until.....

I never expected to find everything I was looking for in this jacket, It is super warm and I love that its longline, has a high collar and pockets in the front of the jacket. I ordered both jackets in a size 10 so theres no need to size up! The black one has a detachable hood which would've been great on the white jacket thought but never-mind. I cant believe I'm saying this but I never thought I would be so happy winter is coming!!!!

However not everyone shares the exact love as me for this jacket; before I posted it up on my Instagram I showed my Mum the pic and her exact words were "Thats nice...but you look like the Michelin man." ROTFL!!!! Then she asked me if I intended to keep it (she likes the black one more) yes Mum its here to stay, she doesn't get fasssshun LOL!

THE WEEKEND MUSE #4: THE PUFFA JACKET

Is it a sleeping bag? Is it a duvet? No its Superman, the PUFFA JACKET! (or puffer jacket). Winter is coming and this is about to be this years unlikely "It" jacket. Sure one can look for a standard double breasted item but I have dreams of getting cosy in a padded feather down jacket that may or may not make me look like the michelin man. Here are a few of my favourites:

1. Bershka Cropped Jacket (Available in Black & Cream!) / 2. H&M Padded Jacket / 3. H&M Black Padded Jacket / 4. Uniqlo Hooded Jacket  or similar

THE £7 PRIMARK JUMPSUIT


- SHOP THE LOOK -
Primark Jumpsuit available in store (similar here & here) / Dorothy Perkins Bardot Top / Superga Trainers 

Y'all Primark are having a sale. I will say it again. PRIMARK. ARE. HAVING. A. SALE!
I didn't even think it was possible for a shop famous for its low price points could go on sale but if your available get yourselves down to Primark ASAP!

I scored this jumpsuit for only £7! First off I dont even recall seeing this jumpsuit at full price and honestly if I had I would have still bought it. I dont have enough jumpsuits in my wardrobe and I'm always on the hunt for one but I feel like their always quite slouchy and casual or formal and tailored. I love this one by Primark, its linen, culotte styled and it gives me this vintage vibe because I for one have not seen anything similar in highstreet fashion, it feels like a jumpsuit I would find thrifting.

This shade of green is not something I have alot of in my wardrobe but I decided to layer it over a bardot top because I am loving showing off my shoulders lately, however I really need to invest in a strapless bra because at the moment I just slip the bra straps on my standard bras to the side because I really have no clue where to look for one, so if you have any suggestions let me know in the comments section below!!!

Remember PRIMARK. ARE. HAVING. A. SALE! GO! GO! GO! lol
