18 Today!

18 according to my birth cert but
8 at heart ;-)  ..........

Zara monochrome coat


As you grow up there comes a time when they stop putting your age onto balloons, banners, napkins etc, so when a 'big' birthday comes around you gotta make the most of it by pretending you're 5 again and decking the whole house out with balloons, bunting and the works. Birthdays are my favourite - I love asking people what they got, making cakes and giving gifts to people. There's just something about them that feels magical. And they feel even more magical when it's your own birthday! This evening's plans include a takeaway, presents, family and lots of cake *wink wink* And then on Saturday is the real celebration which I'm way too excited for! I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve, ha ha! And, of course, I'll have to squeeze in another outfit post because one birthday outfit just isn't enough ;-)

The chill has set in and I can already sense that Winter is on its way. On the weekend, I dug out all my winter coats and I came across this beautiful monochrome coat from Zara last year. I blogged about it last winter in this outfit post  but I thought I'd revisit it as it's just so beautiful. The incredible houndstooth print is a statement in itself meaning you don't really need to put much effort into the rest of the outfit - just throw on a white or black jumper, a pair of comfy jeans and some cosy boots, et voila, you have a cosy casual outfit perfect for the Autumn. The material is soft and cosy for the cold winter months and I can't help but feel like Blair Waldorf in if ;-)

Happy Humpday!
