Okay – so here’s something new for me: wearing purple! I genuinely don’t think I’ve owned anything purple since way back in 2012, when I had this violet coloured vintage dress. In all honesty, I simply just don’t like purple very much. Or, I didn’t, at least, until quite recently. It all started with Nicole by OPI – they sent me a few polishes to style, one of which, was purple – a shade that I actually kind of liked! I painted it onto my nails and matched it to a rabbit print playsuit by Ark. And just like that, I’m cool with purple.

It’s also very in line with my latest mission: to wear more colour this winter! I’ve fallen into the dreaded trap of wearing black, black, black, and I’m over it. So yeah, colour sounds good! Hello purple, hello yellow, how are you guys doing? Good? Me too!

Ariana Grande Problem Outfit

I really, really like the song ‘Problem’. And with that confession, I’m hoping that I’m not the only 25 year old who feels this way. Right guys? (Back me up… please!) This passion for teeny-bopper tunes has crept it’s way into my wardrobe in the form of this black and white coat, which I generally refer to as my ‘Ariana jacket’. It’s a little over the top, but I’m rather smitten. Plus, every time I put it on, my sweet sweet boyfriend gets to hear a round of “head in the clouds, got no weight on my shouldeeerrrrss” – cracking multiple highs along the way of course! Hey Barnaby, just wait until you see the referee style high-waist striped bikini I bought for our holiday next month. There are bound to be countless Robin Thicke impressions, I’m sure (“hey girl, you know you’re looking so damn fine!“)

I had my eye on this street as soon as the coat landed on my doorstep. Just look at all that black and white! If you look extra closely – or not, because I’ll tell you about it anyway – the doorstep I’m beside belongs to a beautiful handmade candle shop. I try and walk past as often as I can in the early morning, as the scents that waft out are incredible! Vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, you name it! It all smells so good – I literally do a double take when I walk past, but you know me – I’m a bit of a foodie! ; )
