Ok don't freak out! Yes I am wearing pink. I'm still a bit surprised myself.

So I was browsing the Missguided sale one day and stumbled across this coat. Usually, I wouldn't look twice at a pink coat, but there was something about the shade and the cut that stopped it from looking so 'girly'. I could actually see outfit potential, and ways in which I could add my own touch of grunge. The shape is also quite new for me too. I'm stuck in the mindset that because I have curves, everything I wear has to be fitted, but I'm slowly realising that actually, some shapeless garments can also look quite flattering.
I think my hair helps with a coat of this colour. It's a good contrast and sets the tone for the rest of the look. It's faded a lot, and can barely be recognised as purple, but I'm actually enjoying the two-toned blue at the moment.
As for the top and the shoes, they're the kind of pieces you walk past in a shop and think 'Oh come on, it would be silly of me not to.' The word mermaid gets thrown around a lot in reference to my hair, so I thought the slogan was very apt.
I don't think I really need to explain my mentality behind buying the shoes. They're shiny, they're the same shape as the classic Dr Martens 1461 shoe, AND they have cleated soles. Need I say more? They're surprisingly comfortable, and actually, go well with a lot (I got them soo muddy whilst taking these pictures).
I'm still getting my head around the fact that I own a pink coat, but I'm really looking forward to coming up with some looks that make it work for me.
