OOTD | You and I, We Don't Want to Be Like Them

This OOTD was pretty casual with a kind of smart element from the boyfriend coat which is an oldie from Topshop. I really love the colour of this jacket and was a steal at half price in the sale - how could I say no!
To keep frostbite at bay, I chucked on this pretty scarf from a charity shop. I love the Burberry-esque colours and think it compliments the jacket nicely. Whilst mine is a cheap and chips copy, you can grab the real deal over at Suede and Velvet Vintage Clothing.

Under the outer layers is a pretty simple outfit. Both top and skirt are from River Island. I really like the texture combination of the winceyette tshirt and matte leather skirt. Mother dearest felt this skirt a little short but I figured I got away with it with the high neck top and tiggy tights.

For a slight splash of subtle colour I went for my dark red Dr Marten Kensington Flora Chelsea Boots which are now in the sale over at Asos! I would definitely recommend these as they are so comfy and sturdy; perfect for winter walks through puddles and dreary-ness. If you want to read more about them, a whole post has been dedicated to these beauts which you can read by clicking HERE!!

To complete the look I added a worn looking necklace which is again from a charity shop. It was brand new in the original packaging from Next and I believe I bought it for about £1.00. I really love the 'teeth' it has in a lovely brushed, old silver.
