FASHION | Coco



Jacket - Zara | Cami - H&M | Trousers - Cheap Monday | Loafers - New Look

Hallo! How are you? Cold? Yeahhhh, me too. Don't worry, I didn't actually wear this out I refuse to leave the house without at least two coats. I wish I was referring to Coco Chanel in my title but I'm talking about the clown because apparently that's who I look like in these. Never mind, I still love them so despite the annoying side zip (whhhhhy do side zips exist, they just add bulk and nobody wants that.) It's just too chilly to wear them out though, boo!

Not that I've even been going out much, I got ill again so my lung function at CF clinic on Tuesday wasn't very good and I've lost a lot of weight. I'm on tablets and I think they're working so hopefully another round of IVs can wait for a good while yet! I'm finding it really hard to get out and about because the cold really affects my breathing soooo it got me thinking about how it's about time I learnt to drive! I've been doing all my physio, tablets and nebulisers by myself since I was about 10 and all my own IVs (when I'm well enough) for a few years now and I think that driving would be the next step in becoming more independent when it comes to dealing with CF. It'd be so much easier than waiting in the cold for buses and I hate relying on my mum and other people to take me to hospital appointments and I find it really tiring having to take long journeys on public transport so it'd just be better. I could even try and get a job closer to home at places that take 10 minutes by car to get to but waaaay longer by bus, I'm talking hours (which is kinda odd really!) And I hopefully wanna move out one day but I wouldn't want to unless I could drive. I'm quite excited about it now but the reason I haven't done it before is because I'm so scared! But I'm 20, need to man up don't I?!

  1. Firstly, LOVE those trousers, they're amazing!
    Secondly, I'm sorry to hear you've been not great! I know what it's like to be affected by the weather as my mother suffers from MS and she always finds life so much harder in the heat! I hope you're feeling better soon Josie! And definitely learn to drive! I passed this year at the grand old age of 22 and it really is a weight off the shoulders! I still need a car, but still, a drivers license is always handy, and seems like it would be extra handy for you! xxx

  6. Sorry to hear about the breathing, Josie, but good to read that your tablets are working. And you know, I got my driving license only when I became mom,, so 20 is not too old at all to get it. :)

  16. Love this outfit Josie- the trousers are so you!
    Oh gosh I hope you get better, you're so lovely, you definitely don't deserve all the faff and problems that come with your illness :(
    I haven't starting learning to drive, but so many of my friends are learning and passing, it's all so scary! xx

  17. I love your trousers, they look incredible on you! I think you should absolutely start learning to drive! My boyfriend has given me a few lessons and even though I haven't seriously started learning, it's much easier and a lot less scary than I imagined it to be!

  18. Hi Josie, you really have the grunge trend pinned down to a T, you wear these pants sooo well, love them. Such a pity about the weather and it affecting your health. I think driving would make a difference. You are always so sweet to stop by...Aren't you glad it's Friday already :)

They fit your figure so perfectly xxx

  22. These trousers are fantastic! I've been thinking about getting some check pants, but worried about pulling off such a bold look- you do it so stylishly!
    Sorry to hear about the cold and your CF. And, as for driving, I didn't pass my test until I was 20 (21 maybe even.?) and to this day I'm still a nervous driver and have yet to go on the motorway!

  27. You should definitely take driving lessons Josie, it's not as bad as you'd think :) you soon get used to it! I say this, but I took my driving lessons when I was 18 and now I'm almost 25 and do I have my license? Nope! I wimped out of the test!! But I'm going to put it on my resolutions for next year I think :) I hope the tablets are helping you to feel better lovely. It is bloody freezing, I'm seriously thinking of investing in some thermals haha xxx
