Hello again! We're still in the transitional weather phase in the UK at the moment and this Zara coat is the perfect 'go-between' which has been my staple for the past few weeks. On colder days, I've been layering it with a knitted black polo neck and a grey tweed dress or jeans (as in the first photo) but for days when the sun makes an appearance, I've been testing out my new ripped jeans and loafers. It's heavier than a cardigan but lighter than a coat -so I think it fits into the 'coatigan' category! Hopefully after the Easter weekend the sun will re-emerge and I can begin to make use of my pre-summer purchases! Have you got your eye on anything from the new season's collections?

Hello! After a hiatus I've decided to share an outfit photo as I can't seem to stop wearing this Jack Wills peacoat. After grabbing it in the sales, I've been making the most of the cold crisp weather (as far as is possible!) we're having in the UK by layering up! I paired the pea coat with a fluffy cream beret from John Lewis, a tweed shift dress from Superdry and Dr. Martens Kensington Flora Chelsea boots which I cannot recommend highly enough! Unlike my 8-hole Dr. Martens which I've had for a few years now, the Flora boots are very easy to break in. I also find that they're a bit more wearable as I prefer to pair the Chelsea boots design with skirts and dresses. Blog of Bits and Bobs for the photos!

Hello! Another photo outside the ever beautiful bunches of flowers outside Liberty in London. I love spending hours wandering around the different departments; I particularly love the gorgeous printed fabrics!

Hello! As I've finished university for the summer now I've been making the most of the beautiful countryside which is not far from m y home. I really don't appreciate it as much as I should! Hopefully we can have some more long sunny evenings in the near future if the weather co operates!

My sister Helen, whose blog you can check out at http://www.blogofbitsandbobs.co.uk/ is currently revising hard for her final university exams! It seems so strange that she is already finishing and will be entering the world of work! After being contacted by Simply Health with the opportunity to visit Botanical Gardens, Helen invited me to take the opportunity and I was very glad to do so! We're all aware of the need to make sure we're healthy but often with busy lifestyles we're pushed for time. It's hard to get a balance sometimes but Simply Heath's campaign emphasises that you don't need an expensive gym membership and the ability to work out for hours each a day! Small steps can be taken to ensure that exercise can be effective yet fun!

Hello! I'm coming to the end of my first year at university (!) and so I'll be able to post more in the next few weeks. I've got some outfit posts today and have realised I seem to have a slight obsession with floral trousers! Even though the sun is out in the UK it's not quite warm enough to delve into 'high summer' clothing just yet. These trousers are the perfect medium as the fabric isn't too heavy. Paired with my new Birkenstocks, which I cannot recommend highly enough, this is my go-to outfit for those 'not quite summer yet' days.

Hello! After all these months, my Zara coat is still my go- to jacket. It's still a little too cold here to go sans- jacket just yet unfortunately! I'm beginning to compile my summer wardrobe at the moment so I'm waiting for the weather to improve. My post today is quite a simple outfit. I teamed a white shirt (hidden under the coat!) with dark skinny jeans and nude brogues from Office for a casual daytime look.
