I'm like a bird

Coral bird print sheer shirt: Leather Lane market
Black skinny jeans: Primark
Black and white tweed long line blazer with a leather collar: Next
Leather black giraffe head loafers: Topshop
Gold statement necklace - H&M

This is what I wore to travel down to Leamington Spa - which was absolutely fantastic but more on that in another post. I've been after some tops and shirts to wear with skinny jeans for quite a while. I need ones that cover my bum otherwise I tend to look out of proportion. Luckily Leather Lane came up trumps (again!) with this gorgeous coral shirt. I don't have much in the #wardrobezoo so  this is a welcome addition!The loafers were also a Leather Lane find. I jumped at the chance for real leather shoes for only a tenner! Every year I like to buy a new coat and this is this years one. Given  the British weather I don't believe you can ever have too many coats which I suppose is why I seem to have 14...

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I wish I could spend every weekend hanging out with my blogging babes!
