Anything Less Than Butterflies

 



jacket: H&M kids
top: Primark
jeans: Topshop
necklace: My Name Necklace*
watch: Juicy Couture

Oh gosh. This is definitely one of those outfits that look really nice in real life but in photos I just look podgy. Which I guess I am at the moment - thanks to the extreme cold and rubbish weather forcing me to basically hibernate! I really need to stop drinking so much coffee as well but it's so hard to resist a warm cup of goodness! I've been super, super tired lately for some unknown reason, I made sure I slept longer today and all it's done is made me groggy and lethargic! Zzz.

Moaning phase - over. Gushing phase - BEGIN. How cute is this little jacket I found in the H&M kids section?! I originally saw it in Brent Cross but only up to 10-year-old sizes. I managed to track down a 14+ in another store and went straight to the till without trying it. I really didn't think it would fit but it's a dream! I think it's supposed to be cropped anyway, I'm sure it was part of a wedding style outfit but I can't see it online! It's very reminiscent of the American Apparel jumpers (which are ridiculously priced - some good dupes on eBay here though!) but I've been after a Carrie style floral bomber for ages so this was just the ticket. I just wish it came in more colours as I'd have a whole rainbow of them!

I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple but in retrospect I think it would look better with a plain black tee rather than a peplum. It may be hard to believe but I actually don't own one, so that needs to change. Jeans, as ever, my beloved Leighs.

Do you have anything planned for tomorrow? I trust everyone is still full to the brim with pancakes from yesterday?

  5. This jacket is SO nice, I would really like this in black, to wear with a red top or something. I regularly visit the kids sections, I have two jackets from the New Look kids range! I find they fit my shoulders much better.

    I am definitely still full to the brim from pancakes, I had to resist buying pancake mix in asda today, and tell myself I've had enough!

  38. Yay kids section, I nearly bought a onesie from the kids section!
    Is your hair naturally waved at the bottom like that? I'd love to get my hair to go like that rather than just straight, if it's not natural how did you create the effect?

  44. I just got so excited about that jacket and then got to the part where it is from the kids section. I don't think even the 14+ will fit my 5'9" frame!
