Finally- a purple coat!. And, a lazy days outfit

As I mentioned here, I have been looking for a purple coat. In the comments section of that post, the general consensus leant towards the Topshop one. Imagine my disappointment when I get back off holiday and it's gone! Fortunately, I had a back up, which was this one from H&M.
Also it was £20 cheaper!

I trust H&M coats. I bought a black winter coat there when I was 16 and only threw it out this year. That's like 4 and a half years! Top quality and cheaper than Topshop.
If you look closely at my laptop screen in the picture you can see I was browsing etsy!
I also thought I'd show you what I generally wear day to day if I'm just going to work and can't be bothered to make an effort. You could say it's my staple look.

Shirt dress: Tesco, Belt: Topshop, Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: M&S

When I have run out of tights or dresses or if the dress I have put on just feels too short today, or if I'm feeling lazy, this is the kind of outfit I wear. A tunic/short dress, skinny jeans, flat shoes and a big waist belt to wrap it all up! It's very boring and I try not to stick to it, but we all have lazy days don't we!
Also, very exciting- Joules have a sale. Take a look!

I can't tell you how happy I am that you got a colorful coat! Enough black and grey - next winter I'm definitely getting something bright and cheery. :)
