How to survive a garden party...

So on Saturday it was the birthday of a family friend. The party had been planned since before the recent string of bad weather and so it was going to be a garden party, with hog roast; little old vegetarian me was a little appalled. There were also lots of garden games including a coconut shy!

 Despite the fact that it wasn't actually raining we knew that the garden would get pretty muddy and it would be a cold evening so I had to find a somewhat smart outfit, with boots, a hat and a coat:

What I'm wearing:
Trench coat: Rag market £25. It took me a long time to find one that fits properly to replace the old one which got stretched!
Belt: Primark, I think it was £4 I've had it a while.
Beret: £3.99 H&M. I added a scarf pin which was £1.50 from a charity shop.
DMs: £40 from Oasis Markets 4 years ago.

Please ignore my expression; I think I was trying to look dignified but I ended up looking angry!

What I'm wearing:
Jumper: £10 Forever 21. I really love this because it's so warm and comfy.
Waistcoat: £3 from a charity shop
Jeans: £20 from TK Maxx
Boot covers: Christmas present from my auntie.
Necklaces: cameo and pocket-watch both presents
Brooch: Present from mum

I ended up leaving the party early because they were going to make someone wear the pigs ears! I went to see my friends instead and had to sit through the football!
