OOTD | January blue tartan

Blue tartan plaid shirt and black faux fur stole | outfit post full length

Evening chickens! After the excitement of Christmas is all over, I'm trying to muffle severe January blues today. We've taken the tree down and all of the decorations, so our flat is looking decidedly bare. Let's plan loads of fun stuff for the next few weeks to pull me out of my funk, yeah?

Blue plaid shirt - Glamorous
Black skinny jeans - J Brand (old)
Cut out leather boots - Sammydress
Leather jacket - French Connection
Necklace - ASOS
Faux fur stole - c/o Laura Ashley

I hadn't realised my outfit was so dark until I looked at these photos, I guess it reflects my January blues! This blue shirt is one of my sales purchases, which is on the Glamorous website for a mere £10. It's soft picnic blanket material, and I'd definitely advise to go a size up to get that boyfriend shirt look.

I've typically tried to squeeze myself into the skinniest jeans I own and promptly failed so I think running has to start again this week! This faux fur black stole was a Christmas present to myself (no guilt whatsoever) using my Laura Ashley press day voucher. You can still find the the white version available online in the sales, but keep your eyes peeled in store too - as this was the last one left in my local one!

If, like me, you return to full time as of tomorrow, good luck. Take in all of those leftover biscuits and chocolate, and book a weekend away to have something to look forward to!

  4. I'm going to try get out running more, no i will get out running more. For sure. Those are some clumpy looking boots right there. Blue is good, my most worn colour. Thanks for the comment, looks like we're both happy with our 2013 look back.
