Salty sea dog

We've just got back from a lovely weekend in Exeter, which I'll be blogging about (of course) over the next few days once I've gathered all my hundreds of photos of yummy food and beautiful blue skies.  This is just a quick outfit post from our walk to the shop to get provisions for a lazy Sunday night tea.  My Seasalt coat was sent to me a couple of weeks ago and has been the perfect throw-on jacket for chillier days and threats of showers.  I love the gingham print on the inside.

boots: barbour at cloggs* // coat: hellweathers mac from seasalt*
bag: kate sheridan [old] // jeans: asos [old] // hat: primark mens

jumper: primark

The boots are also a new addition, they're Barbour boots from Cloggs.  They're super sturdy and comfortable and will see me through until it's flip flops weather (which some people seemed to think was today, put your toes away until at least May people!)

A slightly odd thing happened today when I was getting ready to go out for the day this morning.  I put on a spotty denim Primark dress I'd bought a couple of weeks ago and teamed it with tights and boots.  I looked in the mirror and something just didn't feel right.  I looked over to my jeans in a pile on the floor and my Nike trainers in my suitcase and I just had this overwhelming feeling that I wanted to wear jeans (not sure how I've made the notion of wearing denim sound like some kind of lifechanging event there).  Wearing a dress somehow just didn't feel like me. I seem to buy an awful lot of dresses - I spend an inordinate amount of time swooning over beautiful printed 50s style skater dresses and it's always the first section I click onto when I visit a new website.  But the truth is, I love jeans.  I love Nike trainers, I love long coats, I love ankle boots, I love baggy tees, I love hoodies, I love jumpers, I love dungarees, but do I love dresses? I'm not sure.  (Have I just made myself sound like a massive casual Cathy, or some kind of slob - should I carry on, I love PJs, I love slippers, I love leggings, I love onesies....)  And what does this mean for my blog? A blog with outfit posts but no dresses? Is that even allowed? I need to think on, but one thing's for sure, those jeans of mine might be coming out more often.  Sorry dresses, you might be hanging in my wardrobe and feeling a little unloved for a little while...

  1. Such a cute, outdoorsy outfit! Those boots are gorgeous and I like the lining on that coat, it's a good length too. I'm really fussy with dresses these days, I could probably live in maxi dresses and pass on every other style!

  3. I so understand this Rosie, I love dresses and buy them all the time but lately I feel so much better in jeans, boots and a jacket. It's an odd one...

  4. Your boots are really lovely Rosie, I'm keeping my eye out for a brown pair at the moment as they're a bit more spring appropriate than black :)

  5. OH MY GOD YES. I have so many pretty skatery type dresses, which I love, but I feel MUCH more comfortable in jeans & Nikes. But I think the casual look is really cool and is what sets you apart from other bloggers! You pull off pretty dresses AND casual looks so well and do not stick to one style, nor should you have to. I give you a high five and a gold star.

  6. Yeay, I can comment again! I've also recently had a hankering for denim, and I never wear jeans apart from camping trips and festivals, but since picking up a pair of jeans at the clothes swap I've worn them at least four times already! My skirts and dresses don't know what to think about the situation...

  7. Well my dear Rosie, it seems that I am the same as you - considering my huge amount of dresses, the first thing I do online is search dresses (smock dresses in particular). I mean they're easy, and great to throw on but I'm a bit like 'hmmph' another dress - nothing exciting. So I say this, and then I'll go shopping and buy a new dress? Because it's easy? I don't know.. But I do.
    Lately I've wanted things different, you know, like shorts (I own loads of them too) and recently I decided that maybe I wanted denim jeans so I tried some on and automatically had to take them off - I looked hideous, like honestly! I guess I don't know where I'm going with this, but we buy and pick dresses because it feels like you've bought an outfit, and it's easier that having to sometimes throw things on but then I'm forever in awe of the way you dress your jeans so well (even if you think it's so casual!).
    And my comment is now over - and there was no moral to this story. Just yeah!
    PS your face is hot. xxxx

  9. Oooh I love that jacket, I've been looking for something just like this for a while now, really nice with the cute lining. I also adore those boots with the quilted panel, so Barbour you can recognise them instantly! :D

  10. I love the way you make jeans and casual outfits look so good, though> I never wear jeans because I always look like a total dork in them. I have the wrong shape for jeans, it seems. Or for anything else at the moment, in my opinion. But, less of that.

  12. Love the coat :) I get that feeling sometimes - today is definitely a jeans and jumper day - but 9 times out of 10, I feel more 'me' in a dress! x
