OOTD: Valentine’s Red

♥ Valentine’s Day may have gone in a flurry of roses, glasses of bubbly and sexy snogs but I am still feeling all romantic and keeping up the Valentine’s theme by injecting some passionate red into my wardrobe. I feel in love with this coat when I was browsing the George at Asda site (seriously, there are some hidden gems on there!) and ordered it instantly. It’s a soft trench with great gold zip detailing and came in at a mere £28!

♥ This is my very first Outfit Of The Day so please be kind! I’ve been inspired by the incredible plus-size blogger Callie Thorpe who is constantly stylish, always lovely and very, very beautiful. Fingers crossed y’all like it!

♥ Take Me Back To Paris

♥ Last year my lovely boyfriend whisked me off to Paris to celebrate my 23rd birthday in style. As a huge fan of French fashion, I spent weeks pouring over French style blogs and hunting out the perfect trench coat and navy accessories to wear in the city of love.

♥ I’m still obsessed with French style- stripes, monochrome, cute little neck ties, red lips, navy, spots… the list goes on. With the world’s eyes on the Paris Couture Fashion Week shows, I’ve fallen head over heels (again!) for the Chanel Couture collection featuring lace, black and white and the beautiful Cara Delevigne walking the catwalk. The whole collected wowed me with lace, monochrome, gothic style and prettiness and I’ll be taking a lot of inspiration from it to add to my own everyday looks.

♥ My own style is very paired down with a usual mix of ballet flats, a trench coat, chiffon shirts and slim fit trousers or jeans so I was chuffed when I started browsing the Next website to see they have a real French inspired style in their latest collection. As you can see below, I’ve picked out my favourite pieces and added some snap shots from one of the best trips of my life!
