"The days are getting colder, have a warm heart"

It's extremely cold in Wales right now.

Who am I kidding? It's always cold in Wales...

I was going out for a meal and wanted to look cute, but also needed to dress well suited to the weather; painfully cold winds and torrential rain. I'm not even exaggerating!

I must admit, cream and burgundy are some of my favourite colours, especially in blocks.
I wore a plain burgundy skater skirt from River Island and paired it with this gorgeous cream blouse from New Look. The blouse is really pretty as it has a lace panel that stretched from the sleeve and all the way across the back. It's also quite oversized so I tucked it into the skirt to give me some shape. Just to tell you, the blouse is rather sheer so I put on a pale pink vest underneath, also from New Look.
Under the skirt, I wore black tights, cream frilly socks from Topshop and tan and tapestry brogues from good old New Look.
Simple, but so elegant. 

How gorgeous is this coat!!!!!
It's actually a deep navy, but it's coming across as a purpley colour, I don't know why and it makes me sad but hey ho.
I bought it before going to Paris in March, especially for the occasion obviously. I'm pretty sure that it's from Dorothy Perkins and cost me a grand total of £20 in the sale... Bargain!
As you can see, it's a pea coat made from a fluffy (ish) material with gorgeous pearl and silver buttons! It's the perfect length and also features a peter pan collar, which unfortunately, you cannot see.
Oh, and it's suuuuper warm and cosy :)

I love this outfit. When you break it down it's really simple, but it makes for a gorgeous, elegant look.
