Red on red has been red hot his season and being a huge colour red fan i thought this should be something for me to try out. Normally i wouldn't ever top a red sweater with a red coat, it would usually be a camel or black coat. But inspired by the catwalks and the likes of the fabulous Laura of Wearing It Today i went ahead and gave it ago with my gorgeous new Wallis Red Coat. And the result i have to say, was rather pleasing. I think red in general is so gorgeous that wearing both pieces together added a really luxe, expensive feel. It was perfect for my slouchy/smart look i was going for. With the casualness of the boyfriend jeans and the fun leopard print booties, i found my happy middle ground of comfy and smart.
As i mentioned the red coat is new ( i know, i know, i did not need another coat!) I had been on the look out for a new red coat for some time. I have a cute duffle type coat( which i sadly never wear anymore) that's just not the style i was after. I wanted something smart and that could look good with dresses and jeans. This gorgeous red funnel neck coat ticked all my boxes and when Wallis had 30% off coats i snapped it up, and i'm super happy i did.
Its also rather perfect for the festive season..eeee:)!!

Ps sorry about the radio silence here guys, life has been busy and complicated and nothing has run to schedule at all. I have beaten myself up for days over not getting things done, and things not going to plan. Till this afternoon, when i realised sometimes things don't go as you want them to, they will get done in their own time and when the time is right.
i think i need to be less of a control freak and just go with the flow
(which as control freak that is far easier said than done!)
So there we have it, the confession of a control freak trying to loosen up ;)
