Tartan, not just for picnic blankets

  poncho ~ Henry Holland @ Debenhams, dress ~ Monsoon, boots ~ Linzi shoes, necklace ~ New Look

Today has been an ultimate lazy pyjama onesie day so i've had plenty of time to upload/edit photos and catch up on a bit of blogging....starting with some outfit photos from the weekend.
I actually brought this coat two years ago in the Henry Holland sale but it just so happens that it lends itself perfectly to this years tartan trend, which means its been dragged out from the depths of my wardrobe and given a new lease of life. I've worn it more in the last two weeks than i have done in the last two years and it feels like i have a new coat for nothing which is always nice. I'd say that about 90% of the time when i wear a patterned coat or jacket i end up pairing it with all black, Sunday was no exception with this simple but pretty dress from Monsoon. 
I guess that's it for now, today's outfit has been a Pikachu onesie and this evening is going to be a continuation of my lazy day; a bit of catch up tv, blogging then an early night i think.....i really am an exciting blogger!


  1. ooh very nice, I love rediscovering stuff too and this is lovely. Ahhh I wish I could spend the day in a onesie watching tv ;) Hope things are good in Cardiff!xxx
