When you find your colour you know about it. It could be a totally subtle slight shift from all black everything to a slightly cooler navy, but everyone reacts to you as though you’ve just come back from a fortnight on a Caribbean beach.

I feel like this about khaki – whether it’s a classic army jacket or a sludgy green knit, it makes me feel as though my skin looks good and that I look pulled together – even if I’m feeling far from it.

This autumn it’s everywhere.


Marks & Spencer is all over the trend, with this classic peacoat and uh-mazing wide leg velvet trousers.

Now, these trousers. You might not even have noticed them in store, but they are AMAZING! They’re comfortable, flattering and easy to wear – meaning you could dress them down like I have with trainers just as easily as you could by wearing with heels. There’s also a fabulous double breasted jacket to match – if you fancied doing the whole velvet revolution thing for party season.

I’m also wearing their mix-shapes earrings, which I haven’t stopped wearing since I got them. They’re so cool, adding a bit of edge to a simple outfit. And at less than ten pounds, they’re worth the investment.

I’ve teamed with a matching khaki v-neck from Iris Fashion and a pop of colour with this bag from Boden.

Head to toe shades work really well if you mix different textures – plus this is such a comfortable outfit!
