Red Riding Hood, Military Jackets and Mary Poppins ♥

Hi girls! Hope your week is going well, I spent last night at the library researching what I want to write about for my MAC contract magazine. I've come up with some pretty good ideas - I think. I'm going to start writing up my first draft today! Ahh scary stuff. Anyway, todays outfit is very Cheryl inspired ;) The military jacket was only £5 from Primark! It was £20. It's great because it goes with everything and it still keeps me warm ;) We all know I have a fear of winter because I hate wearing layers and layers. How romantic.. Any who, the boots are also from Primark and were £15. The teal coloured crop top was from Miss Selfridges - I love it! I bought it last year for £8.
Now the bag clashes nicely with the outfit (which I like), it was £35 from Office. I got it years and years ago. I like how chunky looking it is and of course the colour ;) It reminds me of the bag Mary Poppin's has because the amount of stuff you can fit in here is unbelievable -not that I carry around hat stands or giant mirrors in my bags...

I'm currently listening to Fever Rays 'The Wolf' to get me inspired for my MAC feature post. I'm basing the beauty look on Red Riding Hood. Pretty neat idea huh? I think it would be nice to do a post on what products I come up with! :) I love the whole look of Red Riding Hood, it's pretty amazing how you can apply a Gothic theme to the character and that it still works so well together! I think Amanda Seyfried was perfect in the film, don't even get me started on how amazingly gorgeous Peter is.
I definitely want to go as Red Riding Hood next year, we all should have a red hood in our wardrobe ;) What's your favourite fairytale story? 



  1. another amazing outfit!! I wanted to go as red riding hood this year but couldn't find a cute hood!!


  2. Arrr thank you! :) Oh really?! Hmm I have a feeling we'd have to make the hood..that was never part of the plan! haha :) Especially with how tragic my sowing skills are... Ebay maybe? :) x

  3. I love the contrast of the bold bag to your outfit! & I can't believe your jacket was reduced to £5? You definitely picked a good bargain there, it's lovely!

    I know what you mean about trying to stay warm in winter, but i don't know, there's something about loads of layers and thick coats and cardigans that i just love! xx
