Go Down To The Sea And Tell Me What It Is You Want To Be

Colour Block Faux Fur Coat - Topshop
Crocodile Print Faux Leather Bag - Topshop

I bought this coat and bag in the Topshop sale this year and just had to show you! I nearly bought this coat full price at the beginning of December however my card got declined as I'd blocked it from spending too much money in quick succession on payday (hahah). Anyway I had to walk away from the little beauty knowing I might never own it, which killed me as it is so perfect. When I checked the Topshop online sale I couldn't believe it was £45 down from £95 and still available. I purchased it without even thinking and have worn it non stop since. I've never owned a faux fur coat before, and now in my eyes I have the most beautiful one in all the land. 

After the death of my much beloved black leather backpack I needed a new everyday bag to lug my things around in. I love the structured look of this doctors case style bag which cost me £20 down from £42. I tend to pick a bag I love and wear it every single day until it breaks. While some girls have a vice for bags, mine is very much for shoes (as you can see my Aggy X Dr Martens are still attached to my feet at all times).

I have a little giveaway for you all this weekend to celebrate reaching 600 followers, then 650, and now I have reached over 150,000 page views. All this blows my little brains out and I love giving something back to those who make my hobby so worth it! 

Today's song of the day is 'The Sea' by Swing Deep. The band have a really mellow yet fuzzy rock sound that is so soothing and intriguing. I love their new single which only makes me current lust to go for a day trip to Brighton stronger!
