I always find this time of year a little funny for fashion. Deciding what to wear in the mornings isn’t easy. First thing it’s cold and misty then when the sun breaks through layers and layers of wool and scarfs can become to much. Last weekend, Scott and I had the day to ourselves so wanted to get out and grab some fresh air. Knowing we wanted to head to the outskirts of Norwich and the Cafe Jungle at Urban Jungle, I just needed to work on my outfit decisions.
We have been wanting to visit Urban Jungle for ages. Well I say we, I totally mean ‘I’ wanted to visit and drag Scott along with me! Although I have to say he was pleasantly surprised by the amazing cafe decorated with cacti, complete with cosy fire. We also spent an imaginary fortune on plants whilst there, all good planning for the house we may one day have.
A couple of weeks ago I brought a few new pieces from Zara including my black Military coat. From memory, this coat should have been way over £100. What’s that? Under £40 in the sale, oooh yes please! I’ve popped a link down below to the last few on the website. Knowing I wanted to wear this, I worked backwards with my outfit. Sundays always call for an element of cosiness so my bell sleeved grey jumper was choice number two. Now making simple decisions has never been my strong point, I can often spend an hour deciding just what to have for lunch! So whilst simple skinny jeans were a given, the shoe choice was proving a little more challenging. Until I remembered I picked up a pair of new flats in the H&M sale.

For the first time in a long time the sun had his hat on so I grabbed my MK Sunnies as we headed out of the door. Scott brought me these sunglasses a few years back and every year they fail to disappoint becoming a trusted ‘go with everything’ wardrobe staple. As I mentioned my pointed lace up flats are from H&M and although they said £7 in the sale, they scanned through at £5! Don’t you just love it when that happens. There’s a link down below as there are still a few pairs left online and available in black also. My Black slouchy bag is from H&M too – surprise, surprise! This bag is brilliant for a quick throw everything in and go. A great shape to transition into spring also.
The pop of red under the collar of this coat really caught my eye in store. I love the contrast against the black and how it compliments the beautiful gold buttoning detail. The thin pockets and stitching on the coat are all clean details which suit the shape perfectly.
