Outfit: Hold Back The River


Primark Dress · Primark Coat · eBay Boots · Sunglasses London Retro c/o Glasses Direct*

Soooo, 40 days into the year and this is my first outfit post. Tragic. I don't really know if I class myself as a "fashion blogger" anymore. I'm just that girl who writes about her life and occasionally takes a selfie to share with you all. So, what do I call myself?! The lazy once in a blue moon blogger from London? 

I picked up this dress in Primark months ago so I doubt it's still available. Sorry about that! I really love the 60s smock shape where it flares out at the bottom and of course the quilting. It reminds me of something The Whitepepper would have.  I automatically paired it in my head with bare legs and boots and today realised it was still sitting on my rail wearing its £10 price tag. I'm so bad with money ): The coat has been my most worn thing throughout the winter and for good reason. It's on trend, long, warm, affordable and comes in a range of colours. Primark just get better and better!

The sunglasses are my new babies and I absolutely love them. They are the London Retro Retrospectiv Fairbanks glasses from Glasses Direct who stock designer sunglasses with either prescription or no prescription. I got no prescription as I often wear contact lenses now. They also offer a free home trial if you want to try out different shape frames to see what suits you before you buy. I have used this before when getting some prescription glasses and cannot recommend it enough!


  1. I love this outfit! Xx
