So I have been a little slack on my outfit posts of late, first it was because I went away and style snaps and living on a boat didn’t really go hand-in-hand, then there was more than a week when I never came home while it was still light enough for a picture, then I had to contend with the rainy weather at the weekend, and my constant problem finding someone to actually capture my look.
Finally this weekend the weather was actually bright, well for most of it, I managed to rope my boyfriend into taking my picture and it was cold enough to wrap up in my new favourite coat from Boohoo’s Boutique collection.
I first spotted this coat at the Boohoo dinner I went to back in August – I fell in love with it because it kind of works three trends in one – checks, biker style and furry and it is super cosy to wear. I was kind of scared about working the checks trends, mainly because I think you have to get the right size check for it to work, so when I saw this half-check-half black biker-style coat I couldn’t resist, especially as it has a cute furry faux-fur collar to give it a vintage vibe.
As this coat does all the talking I paired my beauty with my go-to Donna Ida jeans, an oversized black jumper, and my new cut-out ankle boots from Bank’s Blonde + Blonde, trust me you will see more of these beauties as the season goes on but I couldn’t resist taking them out for a spin this weekend.
Have you fallen in love with wrapping up warm in a coat or are you already wishing for spring?
