I’ve wanted a classic trench coat forever.
But considering I can’t afford a Burberry classic, it’s taken me a while to find one that meets my exacting requirements. Which include, by the way, a longer length. Here’s the thing, I’m not talking flasher mac. However, I AM interested in a classic trench coat that falls below my preference for a midi length skirt.
Zara are always particularly good at a trench – it’s a style staple and therefore they are all over it in some capacity every season.
Outfits: Skirt, Whistles (last season, but also love this); t-shirt, Primark; shoes, Hobbs (last season, but have you seen Mango’s similar versions?); bag, H&M (not available just yet); pom poms, Jigsaw
I was asked by Debenhams to style one of their Oxford Street store mannequins for Fashion Week, interpreting the new season trends for the Debenhams shopper. My theme was ‘berry’ – see the pics below to see how I did.
I loved the idea of mixing forest green with berry and red – a real woodland berry vibe. The jumpsuit was Preen/EDITION, while the bomber jacket was Jonathan Saunders/EDITION. As it was to celebrate LFW, I wanted to use British designers from their Designers at Debenhams range. The red bag adds a bit of a vibrant colour pop, while the simple courts keep the focus on the jumpsuit print. Stylish? You tell me!
MARKS & SPENCER SHOE BUYING…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – leopard really is a neutral in my house, so clash up those prints however you want.
Marks & Spencer has got some serious shoe game this season.
STARTING THE SCHOOL RUN…
Yes, it’s finally happened. Charlie started primary school this week. I managed to keep it together until I said goodbye, when his brave little face + the enormity that he’s not just mine anymore suddenly dawned on me.
And so it comes to pass, that I am now a mum on the school run. Officially.
Have a lovely weekend everyone x
