It's always darkest before the dawn

Leopard Print Coat!
Coat: River Island Blouse: New Look Shorts: UO Shoes: New Look Bag: Ebay 

This is the first time that I've ever properly worn this Leopard print coat, i've always been a bit wary of it, thinking the print is a bit too 'showy' for me, all of my coats are extremely plain and simple! I didn't realise how warm it would be, it's so lovely and snuggly, I think I could probably sleep in it, ha!
I bought this blouse the other day from New Look. I've always loved peter pan collars, and this one is sequin too, which just made me love it even more. Lately, it must be the Christmas spirit, I'm being drawn to velvet and sequins. There's so many sequin dresses around at the moment, not sure whether I could pull one off though. 
I've just had a pretty average day really, had a lecture at Uni about politics and spent the rest of the day moping around my room. Is it just me that tends to get fed up around this time of year? I think i'm just ready to go home and spend time with my family, hurry up holidays! Are you doing anything special over Christmas? We always tend to have Christmas at home, with just the close family, eating a massive roast dinner and opening pressies!

Love, Charlestown xoxo.
