Trench Coat - Aquascutum  //  Blouse - H&M  //  Jeans - Topshop  //  Shoes - Topshop 

Firstly I'd like to apologise for the constant garden pictures, I'm constantly trying to find the confidence to go elsewhere, in public, to shoot some shots but the thought somewhat terrifies me. The thought of other people watching me, who most probably don't understand, scares me silly. I even grew fed up when taking these snaps because I felt horrendous in them all (see how my hairstyle changes 3 times?) however I managed to salvage a few to share because I was fully committed to his post. #blogplans

I'm currently on the flight to Turkey (I'll be sunning myself by the time you read this) and I have high hopes that pictures will be taken in pretty settings with people around and I won't care, but we'll not rely too heavily on that! 

Moving on. If you know me in person then you'll probably know how I live in these jeans 89.9999% of the time I'm out of work, they're the comfiest pair I own and make me feel the best I've ever felt! Because of my shape and size, I find that Topshop's Jamie jeans do the trick. 

I've paired them with this pale blue blouse that has been a constant Spring staple since I purchased it a few years back, it looks cute with the majority of my wardrobe and is so comfortable that I can be relaxed yet look chic-smart.

How cute are these mules?! Thanks to a sale a few seasons back, I purchased 3 (oops!) pairs and they are the lightest shoes everrrrr, I've even bought 2 pairs along with me on this trip. They bring a spring/summer feel to all my outfits and make me think the sun is finally gonna show!

My Aquascutum trench is another staple, you wouldn't believe that it was a hand me down would you? It may be 2 sizes too big for me, but thanks to the coats belt - and my mum - it fits much sleeker and is the perfect companion for the vast majority of the UK's weather (except for this weekend! Must wipe my brow).

The whole outfit makes me feel my age (finally!) without feeling terribly uncomfortable. Definite Spring go-to!

Ps. Totally not wearing these jeans and shoes to travel in...not at all.
I definitely reached the point with these photos where I gave up, this was the result.
