London Fashion weekend // ootd

OK. Shall we address the elephant in the room before I start this post? I have no style.
Zero style in fact. 

I dress for warmth and comfort which basically means boring and boring. This would also explain the lack of OOTD posts I do because who would want to take an fashion advice from me?

Anyway, enough of the self deprecation!

Back on a very cold but bright Friday morning, Hayley Owen (blogger friend extraordinaire) and myself visited London Fashion Weekend at the Saatchi Gallery near Sloane square. On most days, I'm not opposed to just chucking on whatever is around me and running out the door but that day I was trying to go for this effortless street/chic style which I'm sure I didn't pull off but hey, God loves a trier!

I knew the temperature was going to be dwindling that day so I was more than happy to rock my new grey duster coat I picked up in the sale from New Look. I had my eye on this beauty for a little while and snapped it up online for £38 down from £54.

My dark denim looking top (which is actually just a cotton shirt) was also a sale purchase from New Look. Purchased for £6 down from £12.

As always, I had to get some black in there somewhere and so I threw on my Joni Jeans from Topshop to maximise comfort and warmth.

Also, if you haven't noticed, white trainers are all the rage nowadays (sweetie darling) and even though most people are wearing white Adidas Superstar trainers, I decided against them (as they make my feet look HUGE) and went with some classic flat slip ons from New Look purchased for £12. Bargain.

My hat is also a New Look purchase but it was from last year (I swear this isn't #sponsored but I wish it bloody well was! Have you seen the latest collection from New Look?! It all looks good enough to eat...or wear...whatever)

My bag is from Primark which I included in a YouTube haul. You can watch that here!

(Cheeky plug)

So there you have it, my not so effortless, trying to be cool but not OOTD!
