This past weekend (and today, it seems), I accidentally found myself becoming a walking advertisement for H&M. I seem to have unwittingly dressed myself head-to-toe in the brand - not that I'm complaining. My super comfy jeggings paired with my loose but edgy top went together to create an effortlessly stylish look, and my warm winter boots kept my tootsies nice and toasty for a day spent at the beach.
Although I brought back this outfit today for this outfit post and some quiet shopping for Mamaw's birthday, I debuted this look over the weekend when I spent some time (okay, a day and a half) in Southend. Despite arriving to torrential rain, thunder & lightning, the next day brightened up just for me it seems and so we headed down to the seafront to spend the day at the mini themepark and sealife centre.
So I chose an outfit that was comfortable but also warm and stylish of course. I think my latest H&M purchases helped achieve this!
My hair definitely looked like I'd been dragged through a bush backwards after going on the rollercoasters repeatedly...but it was worth it. We stayed until dark to see the park lit up beautifully with flood lights and multicoloured fairylights, followed by some traditional seaside chips eaten overlooking the beach.
I think my laid back but still pretty cute outfit reflected the spontanious trip away perfectly. It's an outfit that definitely points towards just grabbing whatever is at the front of your wardrobe before rushing out of the house, but I think this kind of works and still looks really fashionable.
