Skinny jeans and a red coat...

I have raved about this red biker coat before on the blog but it is the only one I want to wear when it is so cold outside. I like the simple, slightly masculine shape, the colour is perfect for brightening even the frostiest of mornings and the wool keeps me from turning the same colour as the coat, haha! This outfit was perfect for meeting up with the lovely Hattie for a (long overdue) gossip and lunch. We have been friends since getting the train back together from the Brum blogger meet in 2011 (!) (see how many familiar faces you can spot!) and we meet up as regularly as our schedules allow for shopping, cake and chats about all things blogging. That is definitely the best part about blogging for so long, all of the awesome people I have met and can call friends as a result :)

Coat: Wallis, scarf: c/o Meadham Kirchhoff x Amazon, jeans: Warehouse, shoes: George at ASDA
This beautiful lace top was an Oasis sales bargain - apologies for the odd link, for some reason it won't let me link to the product page but it is still on their website! I could just about justify another striped top (despite Mark's misgivings) as I don't have one with such fancy detailing on - the lace is just lovely and really snazzes it up. I have been wearing this silk scarf a lot recently too. When you are going in and out of shops and cafes, a woolly scarf is too warm but the silk keeps you nice and cosy without feeling like you are going to melt with all the heat (just me?)


Warehouse have been my go to for jeans recently and their high waisted ones are super flattering on. I got the blue version of these high rise ones instore and although the denim is not as thick as I would like, they are dressy enough to be worn with everything from comfy tops to jazzy blouses. I will always prefer high-waisted jeans as they help to keep my tummy smoothed down and I need all the help I can get in that area ;)


Where do you buy your jeans?

The lace detailing on the top is just lovely, really gives it something a bit different.
My go to for jeans is Gap, they just work on my weird little body! I'm a firm believer in finding the perfect pair and buying them in as many colours as you possibly can.

Stripes and red - quintessentially Maria! My jeans have all come from either Topshop or Mango lately - nice and long, although I do struggle with the hip/waist ratio and usually end up with a gapey waistband :(

That coat is awesome. I love a brightly coloured coat - and I definitely need to wear my own pink one more often. I LOVE Warehouse jeans - their skinny ones are some of my favourites. I also do go for the Topshop Leigh jeans but they don't really last very long in comparison to Warehouse...
