The 'it' coat of the season

It Coat of The Season

Winter coats are one of the only things in life that I take seriously - along with naps and baked goods. I've seen so many overly chic women wandering around the streets of New York (albeit via my Macbook screen) wearing jackets that can only really be described as dressing gowns, and I wanted in. So obviously - me taking the coat business seriously and all - I got in. Or rather, I got one. Now, I guess I can pretend I'm that chic woman wandering the streets of New York with the dressing gown coat..just, minus the New York and chic bit. Life goals = pretty much accomplished.

DESPITE my undying love for summer (note: ice cream), putting together a remotely acceptable outfit on a hot day is something I really struggle with. One of the best things about living in England however, is the fact that even in the warmest months we still manage to get rainfall and cold gusts of wind - thankfully today was one of those days. To ‘celebrate’ this British down pour I’ve decided to throw on one of my best (or worst - you decide) looks and run a few errands before heading over to the boyfriends. First stop: picking up a new coffee table that I won on eBay for £13. Hashtag bargain.

These trainers are quickly becoming one of my favourite things that I own, and I’m often asked where they’re from when I’m out and about (Hummel, if you were wondering). My Adidas sneakers of choice have been sold out for so long now that I decided to try out these bad boys and they haven’t really left my feet since being back in Cornwall. Has anyone ever tried driving in Birkenstocks or platform wedges? It’s not the easiest - or probably safest - thing in the world. Stick with the trainers, like I always do these days..

CALL IT fate, karma, conicidence, whatever, but the past few days have been pretty darn good. As if it wasn't already enough being able to sleep in my own bed, with my own bathroom and with the company of my feline friends, I've managed to score some pretty cool opportunities for le blog and I (we come as a pair you see). 

However, the main reason for my general excitement and lust for life these days rests on some of my readers. Remember that Stylight competition I entered a few months ago? After gaining the most votes and winning both the first and third round I was put into the international blogger final, and I won! As of January 13th (two days before my 21st birthday) I'll be hopping on a plane to Berlin for the Stylight Blogger Awards - how's that for an early birthday present? Definitely beats a hang over that's for sure.

While I'm stuck on 'super sop mode' I'd just like to take two seconds to get a little bit emosh and thank you all for your support over the past few months. It's crazy how much my life has changed since making this blog and it's mostly down to you readers - I couldn't be happier! Thank you thank you.
