Outfit Post: windy days and wide leg jeans...

Coat: Topshop (buy similar from Asos here). Cashmere jumper: £159.20, Boden. Jeans: H+M (instore now, but buy similar from Topshop here). Bag: £65, Accessorize. Boots: Tabitha Simmons (sold out, buy similar here
This outfit includes a few firsts for me: flares, for one - I have just never got on with them. Probably due to the fact I have to wear heels with them (anything that always requires heels is not a good buy in my opinion), I also have memories of a pair of Miss sixty jeans at university caked in mud at the bottom where I dragged the flares through hell and back over my Converse. 

The next is a poloneck, I just feel claustrophic in them. And then there's the pointy boot and flare situation - I don't know why, it just scares me - a witchy heel poking out from under a bell bottom.

But today, people, I am embracing all of this. And it feels okay. The poloneck is cashmere, and loose - crushing all my fears. The jeans are £29.99 from H&M, so it doesn't matter if I don't wear them everyday (but they do require a heel). The MiH Marrakesh once again, slipped through my frugal fingers (although they are on sale at the moment, here). And the witchy boots? Well, they're Tabitha Simmons so I'll just get over it.

Oh, and did we mention the bag? Suede, fringed and affordable - the perfect Spring purchase. I spotted it in the Red fashion cupboard before Christmas and stalked it until it came into store.

On wet, windy days, what better weather to take out a fringed bag, I say!


  1. I must admit, I'm also a bit scared of flares, but you are rocking them! Gorgeous coat too :) x


    1. Oh, thank you! Yes, I've been scared for years...but they are very flattering

  2. They look great on you and at least with the heels they aren't too long like a lot of pairs I've tried.

    It's just getting used to a different silhouette isn't it?

    1. Yes - and with not too high a heel - otherwise I just couldn't do them. It is hard to find strength not to just reach for my skinnies, though!

  3. Love, love, love this look Alex! Gonna be getting my flare on! & the bag........Xx
