wishlist: duster coats

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5

The blogosphere has played it's tricks on me once again. This time, I'm lusting after a duster coat. I can tell they'd be the perfect transitional piece into Autumn, as a nice little cover up thats not quite a coat but warmer than a kimono. You can also see that I am certainly in a monochrome mood, and if it's not black and white it is extreme bright colour. What do you think of my picks?

Leather

T-SHIRT - TOPSHOP // SKIRT - H&M // CONVERSE - OFFICE

I have a feeling this autumn/winter I am going to have a long. ridiculous obsession with leather skirts.. I loved my skort style one from h&m last year and when I found this one in London a few weeks back in h&m too I knew I needed it in my wardrobe! My next task is to get a quilted one! I made this look a little more grungy and paired my oversized denim jacket with it but stupidly didn't take any photos of that!

Bang Bang

JUMPSUIT - NEW LOOK // CONVERSE OFFICE // CARDIGAN - H&M

I may have featured this jumpsuit on my blog only a few posts ago, but I was excited to style it down for sixth form. I rolled up the bottom and chucked on my converse and a cardigan for an easy day to day wear. I wish I had a cropped leather jacket right now because I can just imagine how great that would look with this!

Not the only one

CAMI - DOROTHY PERKINS // SKIRT - TOPSHOP // CARDIGAN - H&M

That heartbreaking moment when you realise only one of the 20+ photos you took is in a decent enough focus. I really can't get the hang of my DSLR, despite using it to blog for  a year or two now, I need my own personal photographer who not only knows about big chunky cameras but also takes good shots. Any takers? I will pay in cups of teas and cookies?

This is what I wore on Thursday for my first day back at sixth form. I wanted to look like I'd made an effort seeing as in a week or so I'll give up completely and be arriving in sweatpants every day. That's one thing I love about sixth form - you can wear trackies and leggings for the whole week and not give a sh*t! Anyway, I settled for a simple cami, cardi, skater skirt and my trusty converse.

Haul: New Look


Now that I'm a working woman with a flow of money into my bank account I've found myself internet shopping a lot more. And the problem I have is that I can't buy just one or two items. For example, in this order I spent originally £300 on 20+ items. Somebody needs to lock my bank card up and throw away the key. Although, thankfully for my allowance I do always intend on sending the majority back. Does anyone else do this or am I just awful at making decisions and cutting down those 30 items in my basket to 10?!

Anyway, thankfully I was disappointed with most of my order so I ended up buying just these 7 items. The boots featured on my Autumn Wishlist and I know they're not going to come off my feet throughout autumn, I've been after a few dresses which I can wear in the winter with some tights and boots and both of these checked numbers will be ideal! Finally, I fell into the monochrome trap and got 3 tops too. I love the floral one with the hint of neon yellow in it and the ribbed neck gives it a sport luxe vibe.

You'll also notice that I've had a bit of a blog make-over! I've got a new design as well as a domain - you'll now find me at lucy-cole.co.uk rather than lucycole.blogspot.com! What do you think?

Autumn wishlist


Summer seems to well and truly gone here in the UK, the colder nights and rainy days have got me crawling the internet for my autumn/winter wardrobe. As much as I adore summer sun, there's something about winter, layering the clothing and snuggling up by the fire with a hot chocolate, it's hard to beat! This year I'm on the hunt for a new super cosy coat and this parka from River Island looks ideal. I'm also lusting for a duster coat at the moment for the transition into autumn while it's not quite warm enough for a coat and this monochrome number is ideal. 

What are you most excited for this autumn/winter?

The White Jeans

JEANS - TOPSHOP // CROP TOP - RIVER ISLAND // KIMONO - H&M // HEELS - ASOS // CLUTCH - MISSGUIDED // WATCH - EBAY

I'm back! I apologise for my disappearance in the past few months or so, but I found myself stuck with a lack of creativity and motivation to blog! But I'm back! I've since had my hair cut short, which I love, but I can't decide whether I prefer my long or short hair, what do you think? I'm also soon to be moving into my brothers old room, which means plenty of ikea and home decor shopping, I am SO excited! It's going to be a lot of fun having a bigger room where I can have my own dressing table and desk! It'll also make taking photos for blog posts a lot easier, hence why I've decided to come back to the blogosphere! 

I love wearing white jeans but they're SO risky! I fear sitting down anywhere or eating or drinking in case something stains them! Although I was brave on Friday night and wore them for a lovely meal with my netball team. I paired it with this pretty pink kimono and black crop top seeing as I don't think any of this outfit will get much more wear this year.. the English summer has disappeared!
