Printed Coat

Hello again! We're still in the transitional weather phase in the UK at the moment and this Zara coat is the perfect 'go-between' which has been my staple for the past few weeks. On colder days, I've been layering it with a knitted black polo neck and a grey tweed dress or jeans (as in the first photo) but for days when the sun makes an appearance, I've been testing out my new ripped jeans and loafers. It's heavier than a cardigan but lighter than a coat -so I think it fits into the 'coatigan' category! Hopefully after the Easter weekend the sun will re-emerge and I can begin to make use of my pre-summer purchases! Have you got your eye on anything from the new season's collections?

The Pea Coat

Hello! After a hiatus I've decided to share an outfit photo as I can't seem to stop wearing this Jack Wills peacoat. After grabbing it in the sales, I've been making the most of the cold crisp weather (as far as is possible!) we're having in the UK by layering up! I paired the pea coat with a fluffy cream beret from John Lewis, a tweed shift dress from Superdry and Dr. Martens Kensington Flora Chelsea boots which I cannot recommend highly enough! Unlike my 8-hole Dr. Martens which I've had for a few years now, the Flora boots are very easy to break in. I also find that they're a bit more wearable as I prefer to pair the Chelsea boots design with skirts and dresses.
