Buying with foresight is not something i am usually very good at. You know, when you see something in the sales for super cheap, but its currently the wrong season to wear it, summer clothes in the winter sales; the thought of wearing such floaty, pretty fabric in the depths of winter always, always puts me off buying things.
But really buying with foresight for something that is cheap now but will come in very useful in the not so distant future is quite a good skill.
For the first time probably ever, i actually bought this pretty lilac coat in the boxing day sales with Spring in mind. Granted pastels can now be worn in winter and can look glorious year round, but i knew i wanted this beautiful lilac coat for Spring. And being the second day of Spring (officially that is, the temperatures and the sight of snow this morning however makes me think mother nature hasn't got that memo) I thought it would be perfect time to crack out the Lilac coat.
I paired it with an all black ensemble and a killer statement necklace (one of my absolute favourites), finished off with a small hint of leopard with this cute black heel shoes.
I am all about a black base with a hint of colour on top lately, keeping it very simple and easy for daily styling.
The lilac coat is a lovely statement on its own, I'm so pleased i bagged it for a mere £20 in the sales. And yes i know, another coat.. i know no limits when it comes to coats it seems ;)
Have you ever bought with foresight? Shopped the winter sales for summer clothes or vice versa?
