A Checked Coat, Hot Pink & A Bit Of Bling

I'm always looking for ways to dress up a multitude of warm layers in the winter, and sometimes it's just too cold for anything other than making like a yeti on a day trip to the South Pole - but on those not-quite-absolutely-freezing days I like to add a touch of bling or style my hair properly if a hat's not needed. So the double necklace thing I've got going on here may have been a bit over-the-top for what was an ordinary weekend at home, but who cares?

I've also rediscovered heated rollers after not having used them for years. I had a bit of Christmas money to spend so decided to treat myself... what a revelation! So much less work than using curling tongs or straighteners (to make curls). So they'll take a bit of practice to get them right, but the curl lasts so much longer than sitting and curling all the bits of hair separately. (So tedious, and it makes my arms ache - hence why I don't curl it that often!) I even had time to put them in on a weekday before work - normally I wouldn't have anywhere near enough time to curl my hair. I think me and the heated rollers are gonna be best buds ;)

Hope you all have a great weekend you lovely lot!

  5. I love that you added some bling - great way to personalize your outfit and it totally works! I am so glad to hear you are using hot rollers, I love mine but it seems the rest of the world is using curling wands. Seems like a lot of work to me and I love saving time in the morning while I get my curl on!

  10. Lovely combination. Great shoes. Great pop of colour with the pink. The only thing I would desire is the pattern of the coat going all the way round (horizontally).
    I am spoiled, I know.

  11. I was going to comment on your hair! I think it looks amazing and I would have never guessed it was from hot rollers. I actually love hot rollers, but I find the curling iron quicker for me. Hee hee. But your hair looks so soft and bouncy! :) I love your coat and it looks so fresh with the hot pink! <3

  18. Loving the hot pink, especially the way the sleeves hang out of the coat, adding that splash of color when it's belted. Your hair looks like you stepped out of an advertisement for shampoo! Beautiful. Keep those rollers plugged in.

  21. Love that coat! You look so pretty.
    I bought some hot rollers this past year and have used them a few times on my very, very hard to curl hair. I won't say it ends up curly, but it does help.

  22. wow! you look FABULOUS!
    in love with your coat!

  23. Love the coat, and so many colors would really play off this so well!

  24. Gorgeous. Looks wonderful on you. A lesson not to be missed here is that staying home deserves as much, if not more, attention when choosing what you want to wear. Hmmmm ... I have a deep purple and black plaid on beige wool coat that could use a similar treatment. Really, your posts demonstrate how pictures can be worth a whole lot of words! 'Preciate 'ya.

  25. This coat is absolutely remarkable on you! I keep thinking that my next coat will be a pattern one, but with all the prints I wear, I'm afraid it would be hard to pair things with. I'm inspired, once again.

  26. Oh- I just have to add here- late, I know- how incredibly gorgeous your hair looks! Before I even read your post, or, if I'm honest, noticed the clothes, I thought, Wow! That is hair perfection!

  27. I don't think the double necklaces are too much at all! I love using rollers, I do it once in every blue moon, but when I do I always love it! Love the the pink sweater you are wearing, looks very comfy and warm oh and stylish haha! Have a great day!
