To start with a slight disclaimer; these photos were taken on our annual family trip to the Manchester sales the day after Boxing Day, and therefore I am sporting the ever attractive post Christmas ‘too much prosecco’ face. In other words puffy and tired.

The idea of this post was to re-shoot an outfit I wore a while ago (here) and basically showcase my ridiculous love for the Cheap Monday turtleneck sweater. Yes guys, that love affair is still very much alive! It was only when looking back at the photos however, that I realised perhaps the real star of the show was my wonderful NaaNaa coat which has basically not left my back since the wonderful Billie-Jo at Branded Lab PR very kindly sent it to me last Autumn. It has seen me through multiple weekends in London, very cold shopping trips, Christmas market explorations and the occasional date and I swear it is my absolute favourite coat. Ever.
The perfect length (for someone of restricted growth – ie. it doesn’t reach the floor) and the perfect blend of lightweight and snuggly it really is, well, perfect. How many times can I fit that word in one sentence?!
