Rainy Day Mermaid

My parents will undoubtedly be pleased to see this post. It's a long running joke in my family that you can't get me into an anorak for love nor money. After being forced into rather unflattering anoraks as a child for long walks around tiny villages in North Wales (the News resembled something of an 'anorak gang' as we trudged over the hilltops) I've had something against that particular article of clothing ever since. But, no more! This anorak is a mermaid's dream, although I'm not sure a mermaid would need one, but...never mind! It's from a label called The Ragged Priest, and after seeing it on tumblr I scoured around for it and found it on Asos, but sold out! I waited around, like a patient but fabulously fashionable vulture, until it came back into stock. It's perhaps not the most practical piece of clothing, but I'm secretly hoping for a rainy day (I shouldn't be kept too disappointed in England) so I can wear it without looking like a complete moron, or at least a dry one.

Top - New Look
Skirt - Boohoo
Shoes - H&M
Bag - New Look via Asos

At the same time as my snazzy new mac arrived, I also received this bag from the New Look collection at ASOS. I haven't actually shopped at New Look for many years (the shirt is pretty old) but it looks like they have some beautiful bags in at the moment. I saw this one on one of my absolute favourite blogs Elizabeth Lola (she is the queen of holographic fashion and clashing prints) and snapped it up almost immediately. It's the perfect iridescent companion to the mac!
