This is now the last of my Outfit Of The Day reserves. Which is good as it is fast becoming Winter rather than Autumn and this outfit was definitely more Autumn appropriate.
I wore this outfit on the same day I went to a local park and took all the photos in my Nod To Autumn post. It was a really nice day weather-wise. It had that nice chill in the air but wasn’t uncomfortably cold. And whilst it wasn’t sunny it also wasn’t raining, so that’s a major win in my books.
This checked coat from New Look was thinner than I thought it would be, but considering it is advertised as a jersey coat I think that’s more my ignorance to reading than how it’s represented in the pictures. It’s still a lovely coat, just not uber suitable come the really cold weather. It’d be perfect for basically every season, other than Winter. As it’s light enough for warmer days and layered it’s still wearable during crisper periods, but regarding the actual season we are going in to.. not so much. I’m nothing if not shrewd.
The jumper from H&M is very cute, but a bit risky to wear when I have two dogs that like to climb all over me. Not because it’s a light colour but because their claws get caught in it and pull the threads annoyingly.
This day in particular I had been holding Mia at one point and she pulled some of the fluffy threads with her claws. This left me with a very peculiar material nipple. It was a combination of an unfortnate location and the way the thread stood horizontally from my chest once pulled, no matter how many times I smoothed it down. Note to self: whenever wearing this jumper carry scissors.
Unrelated to this post but how is everyone getting on with preparing for Christmas? I think I’ve bought a resonable amount of stuff so far. There are still a couple of people to buy for – well actually I have to think up the ideas first. I feel like I used to be very creative with presents and people always loved what I got them. But as I get older I seem to struggle more and more with buying interesting things. Maybe I just used up all of my creativity?
And here are two pictures that I’ve already used on my blog (possibly in two different posts) already. But if your dogs were this cute you’d be doing it too. 😉
