The Imperfectionist



[Coat - vintage, tee - All Saints, skirt - vintage, shoes - Primark]

I wore this outfit for lunch with the boyfriend and a hair appointment (these were taken pre-appointment, so my hair is shorter now) at the weekend.

I swear it all looked less creased in real life. The sleeves on the coat are admittedly slightly too long, hence the crumpled effect, but then coat sleeves always seem to be too long for my arms!
Just call me the imperfectionist; creases and crumples and incorrect lengths always find their way into my outfits. I guess not every item of clothing has to end up looking perfectly preened in order to enjoy dressing up!

Wishing you all a lovely December 1st tomorrow! :)

  7. I have the opposite problem... all coat arms are just a few inches too short on me! You still look gorgeous though. :)
