* Late to the Party *

Hello lovelies! 

I'll quickly apologise for the lack of blogging recently! From my last post, you may have read that it was my birthday last week, and I had a very busy weekend celebrating with family and friends. I had a wonderful day filled with fun, food and fancy presents - thank you for all the kind messages on social media! I've written a post about my day which I plan on sharing with you all soon! :)





 (Pink Coat - SheInside / Skinny Jeans - ASOS / Sequin Top - H&M / Clutch Bag - Primark / Necklace - Vintage / Shoes - New Look / Watch - M&S) 
  
Now I know I'm a little late to the party, and some may think that pink coats are 'so 2013', but I couldn't resist picking up this sweet number from SheInside. My regular readers will know by now that I have hundreds of dresses and even more necklaces, however I severely lack in the jacket department. I have two main coats that I wear religiously and I can really struggle when it comes to finding a style I like. However, I saw this coat online and it instantly appealed - The light pink shade makes it a perfect item for Spring, and can be easily paired with other items.
Today, I decided to style my new coat with some skinny jeans and top - a fairly simple look as I wanted to let the coat do all the talking. I bought this old H&M top on eBay for about £2. I absolutely love the sequinned scallop hem detailing - it adds such a lovely touch and a subtle sparkle to the entire outfit.
What do you think of my SheInside coat? 
Are any of you still rocking the pink coat trend? 
More soon,

Helen
