Style | A Grey Day


A few weeks ago Mr C and I took a trip to Northampton to do some Christmas shopping. I had all good intentions of having my shopping done by the beginning of December, compared to last year which turned into a weekend before mad rush, however, I failed! Not only did we not get any presents but at the time of writing this post we still only have one gift! Is it me or does the fun of the festive period lose its sparkle as we get older! Ok, no more moaning before I turn into the Grinch!

Whilst we were there we had a look in New Look. Trying to find one of their stores with a decent Curves section is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. So when I spotted a fairly decent selection of clothing in the corner I was pleasantly surprised. I came away with three bags of stuff, a miracle!

Two of the items have since become essentials in my wardrobe. First of all this coat, a real step outside my comfort zone. I always stay away from long coats as I'm very short but after some gentle persuasion from Mr C to give it a try I fell in love. It's not the ideal winter coat, it doesn't do up and there are splits up either side, however it looked so good on I couldn't resist it and it was only £20! I'm wearing a size 24 here, I find the sizing in New Look comes up small in the coats and jackets section so I would recommend sizing up from your usual size.

I also picked up this top, again, something a bit different, I don't usually go for high necks but as I had a chance to try this on in store and take time deciding on what I was going to wear it with I was happy to purchase it. Again I got this in a 24, it is very fitted so if you prefer a looser fit make sure you size up.

Coat - New Look
Top - New Look
Trousers - ASOS
Shoes - New Look (old)
Bag - Radley (old)

Is there still a Curves section in your local New Look store?
Much Love


  1. You look so effortlessly classy! I love the coat especially. xx
