Dare To Flare

Not really sure what's up with my brain lately, I'm half switched on. It's so cold here in London, but our snow lasted all of a day so can't really moan. I need to stop buying coats, in the last two months I have somehow ended up with three, yes three in my overly packed wardrobe. This caramel coat was a bargain that I got form the charity shop (Mind), for a mere £6! I've also added four new hats to my collection, and I really have to ban myself from buying any more for a while. Or soon it will be summer and I'll be rocking some massively warm coat. I blame the Rachel Zoe project, I have been watching it on Netflix's and I love Rachel's bohemian yet tailored look. I'm a million miles away from being her body shape, but I think a flared jean styled up a little can look cool. 

Hat & Coat: Charity shop
Blouse & Snood: Primark
Bag: Matalan
Rings: gifts and possible eBay

I went for lunch in the local cafe, it was nice to be out and have a chat with my mum. Corben my three year old was at nursery, so I just had Logan with me. Logan is one this Monday, which is crazy as it feels like yesterday he was a newborn in my arms. His been walking from 10 months, so his a handful, as his almost running around now. It was so nice not to be in the house tidying up, or shouting at the kids for being naughty. I think in summer your out more, so everyone is a lot happier and more relaxed. I'm out with my girls soon for a late 'Happy 30th Birthday' meal, and I have a Witch skincare meet up so I'm really looking forward to those things. I was naughty and treated myself to two skirts from Motel Rocks Sale, they are so pretty and they have a free delivery option so I was a happy bunny.


  1. So cute, loving the photos & the outfit is just lovely. How do you get away with wearing, anything?! Please tell me! BABE XXX

  2. Oh Laura,
    I think this is one of my favourite ever outfits on you; I can't quite explain why but you just look amazing


  3. you look great I'm so jealous of your flares!! I went through a punk phase (I say phase it's never really left) when I was 12 and haven't worn a pair in over 10 years! Im so jealous as you look great!!
    I don't seem yo be able to dress for the weather either- I always feel cold (even on holiday) so ho matter what I wear in the winter I'm cold so I dint always dress that appropriatly
    looks like a great day out with your mum- tea dates with family or friends I the best activity ever!
