Boxy Tweed Coat


Isn't it so nice to take a random day off of work? Just knowing that everyone else is doing the same old routine, but you have the freedom to do whatever you like. This is exactly what I did on Thursday and it was wonderful! I had a little sleep-in, worked on the blog, went to meet Ollie for lunch and ran a few errands. Nothing extra-ordinary, but it was exactly the recharge that I needed.

These photos were taken during our lunch, at the top of Stanley Park. We only had about 5 minutes to get these in, but I really wanted to show you my new coat from Topshop! I was looking for something that was nice and over-sized, with a bit of colour that could go with pretty much anything. I found this one and have been wearing it pretty much every day since. It is so comfy and I love the boxy shape of it. Maybe not the most figure flattering of all shapes, but boxy tops always make the legs look much leaner, and who wouldn't want that? Plus, I'm super obsessed with menswear inspired pieces right now and thought this would be a simple way to incorporate it into my wardrobe.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! xoxox






I was wearing:

Topshop Coat (similar in grey)
Zara Top
Urban Outfitters Skirt (similar)
