Hello Cold World

Top: Forever 21 | Skirt: Zara via eBay | Coat: Zara | Scarf & Bag: Primark | Watch: eBay | Boots: New Look

Well I think my outfit photos have (only slightly) improved in comparison from my last attempt at using my tripod. I still haven't got the hang of it, mind you. It just seems to be a lot brighter than it should be and the focus isn't really on point. I think if I extend my investment and purchase a remote, that may help but in reality it'd be so much easier if I had a personal photo taker who was available when I was! Having to stay outside in the cold with imagined icicles hanging off my nose doesn't really appeal to me that much but somehow staying outside trying to get some usable photos seems completely worth it. Anyway, enough of the babble...

I should have photographed the ever so famous pink Zara coat as soon as I got it last year but obviously that went out of the window as we're now in February 2014 and I've only just managed to greet it to the blogging world. It's pretty much been the only thing I've worn through the entire duration of Autumn/Winter and that showed when it started to get grubby. A week or so ago I had the coat dry cleaned and haven't dared to wear it again since then because it looked so lovely and fresh but I had to give in sometime, and that time has come. I've had this tiled top god knows how long but it's always been one of my favourites and it's a proven point that keeping hold of old clothes seems to pull off when they return to the trends again. I'm also in love with this bag I picked up from Primark, it's exactly what I've been wanting. Primark seem to be doing extremely well on producing bags that look a lot less tacky than labelled and a lot more high quality. The outfit seemed to match my makeup for the day. As usual, it was the natural look with rosy cheeks and soft pink lips; the only difference being this time I decided to add in some eyeliner and matte brown eyeshadow. I quite enjoyed making a change to my normal makeup routine and it's something I'll most likely interpret more often!

Hope you're all having a lovely week and don't forget you can enter my giveaway here.
