You should let me love you

Purple checkered shirt: HEARTS & BOWS via ARK (c/o) | Blue skinny jeans: ZARA |
Contrast faux fur coat & purple velvet dino flatform shoes: ASOS

Okay so I kinda', sorta', REALLY love this outfit.  I am digging the whole grunge look at the moment, and I think this outfit gives a subtle nod to the trend without being too in-your-face. The shirt is one I received from Ark a week or so ago.  I decided to choose it in a size-up as I usually need to with shirts to avoid boob-area gaping, but this one actually looks over-sized, which I actually looove.  It has the whole yeah-I-pinched-this-shirt-off-my-boyfriend-and-I-am-still-totally-making-it-work effect.  There are so many way to wear this shirt (last time I wore it tucked into a mini skirt) so am looking forward to seeing what else I can do with it.
I really like how the coat looks with the outfit.  I get so many compliments on it every time I wear it and it's safe to say I will never grow bored of it, EVER.  It is such a unique item and I definitely think the contrast in textures add to the overall grunge-ness of the outfit.  The shoes I purchased late last year for a mere £25 (£20 with the discount I had, Bargain with a capital 'B'!) and I can't get enough of them.  If you like them I know ASOS have done a few variations on the dino flatforms, so I'd definitely keep an eye out!  The sunglasses were a cool, final touch to the look, although I should probably look into buying some more pairs as I just cannot stop wearing these ones.
I can't believe it's Septemeber in a few days, time moves so fast!  I think I'll just spend my last few weeks of freedom vegging out and watching my 'The Land Before Time' box set with a fat tup of Ben & Jerry's.  Don't hate me 'cause you ain't me.
