black, black and black

I'm not really one for buying things on a whim anymore but I wondered into Zara today to but myself a new jumper, but when my beady eyes happened upon this rather simple fur jacket I thought oohh well thats nice, it wasn't until i put it on I fell in love. The price tag did make me slightly panic, but I figured if I wore it everyday then thats ok! haha!
At the moment when it comes to what I am wearing the simpler the better. A black outfit with a pop of colour always works best for me. The jumper and leggings are both from new look and if I am honest I would of never picked them normally as I do find jumpers look way too frumpy on me, but I am a little in love with this outfit. 

I have actually dyed my hair since I last shot these pictures, it is meant to be plum, I did really want to dye it cyber purple, like in I did a year or so ago but my lazy bones didn't want to take me any further then my local boots that didn't stock it. So I settled for plum.
Update on my weight-loss I have finally dropped a dress size and now I am a size 14, this is great news for my bridesmaids dress..woohoo.
