'I'd like a cheeseburger, large fries and a Cosmopolitan' - Carrie Bradshaw

Skirt - Missguided | Top - Topshop | Coat - Primark | Boots - Forever 21 | Hat - Missguided | Necklaces - Ebay and Topman

So this is the outfit I wore when my mama came up to Newcastle for the day to visit me at uni! The day basically consisted of food and cocktails, shopping, Christmas markets and mulled wine and then more food and cocktails hahaa! The best kinda days if you ask me! (You know it's been a good day when at the end you can't feel your feet anymore and your hands hurt from all the shopping bags, it's safe to say the cocktails were definitely needed). So yeah I had such a fab day with my mama!!

Anyways mini life update over and on to the clothes!! So It was a pretty chilly day and I knew we'd be in and out of the shops so I wanted to wear something warm yet still look nice for cocktails. I haven't worn this skirt since summer, I guess I just associated brighter maxi skirts with summer but they work so well in winter too! So grab them out your wardrobe girls and get wearing!!  I'm all about making summer clothes work for winter too, with the right layers you can make them work all year round and as you all probably know I'm a summer gal through and through! Don't get me wrong I love a white Christmas but this weather right now is just not doing it for me :(!

So I layered a longer sleeve top over my maxi and wore my fave coat from primarni to complete the look! Oooh and I just thought I'd add that I'm loving the coats in primark this winter, they've really upped their game and could give topshop or river island a good run for their money for a fraction of the price! So definitely give primark a check out before you go spending close to £200 on a new coat this winter!
