Surprise surprise

#teenvogue // M&S pink coat (wut, find it here), UNIQLO silk shirt (find it here), TOPSHOP jeans, ZARA bag, SIGERSON MORRISON bootays

I say surprise in many senses; firstly, jesus holy mother is that some color on my body? Is this real life? Secondly, and somewhat sarcastically, I'm insinuating that the fact I caved and bought a pink coat was not inevitable because who doesn't love feeling like a giant candyfloss stick? I sure do. And finally because this coat is Marks and Spencers which I think we can all agree, nobody saw coming...unless of course you've been on the internet for the last three weeks, in which case you've probably seen it...
If fashion makes me uneasy in any sense, it's that I never really know what I would or wouldn't buy if I hadn't seen it plastered in every magazine or on my favorite blogger. I like to think that I'd pick up most of the pieces anyway and while I'm not innocent of conforming to certain trends, I certainly don't follow every one that spring off the catwalk and eventually trickles down to Zara (see: wedge sneakers, Birkenstocks, that whole trend where you left the house in glorified PJ's). Here I am though, wearing a bright pink coat that I have a feeling I wouldn't have given a second look otherwise, but I love it. If I love it, does that make it OK? There's definitely an argument as to whether or not the creation (and one might argue sheer exploitation) of trends either conforms you to themselves, or opens a door to a concept you wouldn't have otherwise considered.

  19. This coat is a beaut, I love it with the sleeves rolled up. I've got my eye on the one from Primark if it doesn't sell out in less than 5 minutes.

  25. I just know that inner conflict as I got hold of me last monday barely trying on a rose coat, but I love it! You look great.Seriously.

  26. I could not agree more with not knowing if I like something because I like it, or if I've just seen it so much everywhere that I think I must like it.. This has happened to me far too many times..

    But anyway... you look lovely so it's definitely OK

  28. Beautiful coat! I heard it got sold out and can't believe it's from M&S. A store that I rarely visit. I think with the blogging world It's all about having the latest without really thinking about whether you personally love it or you just want to because it's everywhere.

  29. Funny as always. The only pink think I possess is a thong and a pair of sneakers. Both are partially pink but that counts. Considering it was my favorite color growing up (looking back "society" made it my fave color) I have very little pink in my life these days.
