She Finally Wears Stripes…

When I first started this blog, I said that I called it She Wears Stripes because I wore stripes all the time, but since the summer came to an end and I really got into outfit posts I have worn no stripes in my outfits at all… until now!

I love winter, but winter also means that it’s already getting dark when we get out of college making trying to get outfit photos so much harder in full light. After college we had to head down Oxford Street to do some work and the plan was after that we would get outfit pics but then it was dark so I scrapped that plan. Although Oxford Circus tube station being closed due to overcrowding was originally a bad thing, it meant that we decided to  go to Tottenham Court Road station instead and as we were walking down the centre of the road my friends stopped me to take outfit photos for me! Although it was beyond embarrassing, I’m actually proud of myself for doing my attempt at modelling during rush hour, in the middle of the road…

Coat: French Connection (Similar)

Top: Asos (Similar)

Jeans: Topshop 

Boots: Asos (Similar)

Bag: TKMaxx

(Finding something again or similar in TK Maxx is very difficult!)

I brought this coat from French Connection in the January sale so didn’t really get much of a chance to wear it when I first brought it, so when I saw similar style coats back in for this A/W in so many shops, I was excited for it to get cold enough to wear it again. I was drawn to this coat because it reminded me of a teddy bear due to the colour and the brushed finish that makes it have a slightly fluffy appearance. I would recommend buying non- trend, more expensive pieces like coats and jackets in the sale after the season, I think this coat was around £200 originally but I got it for £50, meaning I got a super good quality coat which will last me years for a fraction of the price.

Most of my outfits last me year on year because I try to go for classics that will last, probably why I have so many striped tops (this high neck, crop top is my favourite for A/W) and black boots are an essential for winter.

Although mom jeans are a lot more trend driven, these jeans have lasted me over a year now and I have worn them to death, and I really hope this trend sticks around for a while longer because I’m really not a fan of stretch denim. The high waist of these jeans help bring the waist in, and look especially good with slightly tighter and cropped tops.

Although the lighting isn’t the best meaning that the photo’s are a bit blurry, I didn’t pretend to be a model on the busiest street in London for nothing!

Until next time,
