Sing the blues.

Today has been a very blue day, I mean literally. The colour blue was all around me, from the deceptively bright blue sky to my outfit, which was dominated by shades of navy and sky-blue. I think the universe was making an effort since it is February now (please, explain where January went..) and wanted to at least look spring-like, but I was not fooled by the dreamy sky outside - it was actually ice-cold and windy, so this outfit was bordering on appropriate.. Oh, and singing comes into it because I was belting out some Lana Del Rey as I drove in and out of college today (feeling very grown up too!) - her new album is incredible.

Coat, Scarf & Tights - Primark; Dress, Shoes & Earrings - Topshop; Gloves - Accessorize.
I think everyone should own a good trench coat - they are a classic piece that will never go out of style. Most people go for a beige or camel trench coat as their staple, but a while ago when investing in (well, buying) mine I decided that navy blue was more flattering for me.. I am tempted to pick up another in a different colourway! What I love about this one is the amazing silhouette it gives, for a coat. With most outerwear, I tend to get very shapeless (the trials and tribulations of being a bit boyish in shape), so I love the fact that this trench cinches in my waist, an illusion that is aided by the flaring hemline. My new season touch to this perennial piece today was the printed silk scarf - a must-have accessory right now after the insanely creative uses designers put them to on the catwalks. I wasn't particularly imaginative with mine today, but give me time..

One last thing - I just wanted to let you guys know about an awesome giveaway going on at Lipstick Fridays - it is for a load of MAC makeup & an OPI nail polish, and will end when they get 200 followers. I am keen to win this, and so I am getting an extra entry by blogging about it (and hopefully making it end sooner, with me having more of a chance..). I have only just found Lipstick Fridays but I already love it and follow it, so go and take a peek.

Love and kisses, Tara xox
