Outfit Of The Day | KMC Beauty

So my last post was a FOTD and this post is a OOTD, normally i'm not into OOTD posts just because my blog is a beauty blog and I normally don't venture that much into fashion, but I got a new jacket that's definitely going to be a winter staple of mine this year and it inspired me to do this post.
I'm not sure if posts like this will be a one off but it definitely won't be a frequent thing here on my blog, like I said a beauty blog it is and a beauty blog it will primarily be.


Last week I went into Debenhams and typically I wasn't even looking for a new jacket, but I saw this pink and grey checked collarless coat in the Red Herring section and immediately wanted it. In store this was retailing at £65 however my friend told me I should check the price of it online as they were having a sale, when I checked the price online had been slashed to £32.50! I ended up buying it online in the end but I am glad I tried it on in store as it gave me a good indication of the size I needed to get, with these types of coats I always think they look nice slightly over-sized, normally I am a size 8 but I got a size 10. I will say that the photo online really does not do this jacket justice, if I hadn't of seen this in store first and had only seen it online I would DEFINITELY not of bought it. This coat only has a hook and eye fastening mid way up, I like to wear mine open so not having a zip or button fastening doesn't really bother me, the outside of the coat is super soft and the inside is lined with a silky feeling fabric. One must have on all my jackets is pockets, I have to have pockets for my phone and other things when i'm not carrying a bag, but also somewhere to put my hands in the colder weather, the two deep pockets on this coat are very handy.
I paired my jacket with a plain black long sleeved t-shirt from Matalan and my light wash Joni jeans from Topshop. Another favourite of mine during the colder months are my black leather boots from Warehouse, they are super comfy and go well with any look.

Coat / Red Herring - still on sale and still plenty in stock find it here
Top / Matalan - here
Jeans / Topshop (similar) - here
Boots / Warehouse - unfortunately no longer in stock on ASOS or the Warehouse website but I did find some that were incredibly similar by New Look and they are considerably cheaper than mine too. Find them here.

I hope you enjoyed my post, its something a little different here on my blog but hopefully whoever reads it will enjoy it anyways.
