When I was putting this outfit together, I needed something that would work for a nice meal in a restaurant and then the pub straight afterwards. So far, so good until this has to be done in -3C weather... I always find dressing for the pub so difficult but I think this outfit managed to straddle the line between chic and cosy. You must be getting pretty sick of this coat by now but it is so cosy and I like how it looks slightly smarter too, it is definitely my favourite coat at the moment!

Can you tell I have been watching a lot of New Girl recently?! Zooey Deschanel is definitely one of those Marmite people but I do love her and her wardrobe in New Girl is absolutely divine (she is definitely up there with Blair Waldorf for style inspiration!) Jess is a big fan of cute dresses in bright colours and I knew this satiny style prom dress would be perfect for layering up. There's also nothing better than bright colours when it is gloomy outside, they put such a spring (har har) in your step! I think am going to have to replace this stripey top soon as I wear it so often but the Breton stripes and slouchy fit seem to be the perfect match for most of my wardrobe (and this dress is no exception) ...
The eagle eyed amongst you will spot that I am not wearing my glasses in these pictures and this is because I forgot to put them on and only realised once we were halfway to Worcester... oops! I found it very bizarre without them as I have finally got used to wearing them (it has only taken me 4 months!) and I can't get used to my face without them, I look completely different! The gorgeous corally/orange lip is courtesy of my latest beauty purchase: the Revlon Just Bitten lipstain in Rendezvous. I can't believe it took me so long to succumb to their allure but I haven't looked back since I did, I am a total convert!
Which characters' wardrobe inspire you? Are there any beauty trends that you are late to the party on?
