Little Black Coat







Coat: Topshop // Shirt: Urban Outfitters // Skirt: Urban Outfitters // Bag: Zara // Watch: Michael Kors

I've had my eye on this coat for quite some time now but I've only ever seen it available in store in the Topshop petite range and it has been sold out for a number of weeks on the website. Feeling disheartened I decided to try the petite version on regardless of the fact I'm 5ft 6 and by no means petite, yet surprisingly I'm pretty happy with the fit. The fact its not as long in the body means my skirt peaks out the bottom and although I've read a couple of reviews slating the normal version's sleeves for being too short, as this one is petite they look more 3/4 length which is a nice bonus as it lets me show off my beloved watch.

This weekend has been a fairly chilled one for me! It's consisted of reading endless history articles for uni, a jaunt to Costa, watching Back to the Future and a spot of lane swimming with my best friend in an attempt to burn off the alcohol and post night-out food rampage that occurred on Friday evening. The weekends always  seem to fly by!
