Wednesday Wants #3

Hat: River Island, Parka: Matalan, Midi Dress: Topshop, Blazers: Nike, 
Slipper Flats: Missguided, Leather Look Leggings: Topshop,  Necklace: Disney Couture

My 21st Birthday is fast approaching, and to celebrate my family and I are taking a trip to Disneyland Paris. Nothing like going to a land of make-believe to celebrate becoming an adult! When I checked the weather forecast, it said that there would be snow, so I had to invest in this parka jacket from Matalan, which has a drawstring waist for a flattering fit and a big, fluffy hood... It arrived today and I adore it! It is a little bit short in the body, but I am taller than the average bear (said in Yogi Bear voice). 
The faux-leather leggings are super gorgeous, and will add a little touch of glamour to proceedings, which will no doubt be undermined by the presence of a giant bobble hat... but practical is practical. The Blazers will be great for walking around, although probably not so great in the snow (being suede and all...) 

For the last 6 or 7 years my New Year's Resolution has been to lose the extra pounds that I carry around, and it has so far been unfulfilled; however this year I am more determined than ever to get in shape, especially since I lost the confidence to don bodycon (which used to be my go-to going out solution) So when I get to where I want to be I'll treat myself to something like this elegant Topshop creation. 

I fell in love with these Missguided Slippers as soon as I saw them. I'm a hippie at heart, and I like to wear my heart on my sleeve... or my feet.


  1. Can totally recommend the Nike's, so comfy!
