We all know by now i love a good coat. I think its because, ultimately i'm quite lazy (bare with me here) and a coat can so easily take your outfit from meh to yeh in 2 seconds flat.
On the days when i'm feeling particularly tired/lazy/busy.. so most days really.. i love to let my coat do the talking. Being British means coats are actually an integral part of our being. Even in summer.
So to have a great armoury of coats at your disposal makes for an easy life.
I spotted this one a month or so ago in good old Primark when out with my mum. I tried it on, i hugged it close and declared love. But practising what i preach and not buying everything that winks at me from the clothes rail i put it back, knowing full well i have over 20 great coats already.
My mum obviously sensed my dismay, as that wonderful woman then picked it up for me for christmas.
I adore it.
Its just so fun, especially on the grey days we've had in abundance of late.
Quite cleverly it does all the talking for me with its awesome print.
Even though it is quite a loud pattern I find it to be in really wearable colours, which, will look great over a black, navy or grey dress.
I also think it will looks super swell over an all black outfit of leather trousers, black blouse and ankle boots... oh any maybe jeans a white blouse and some sneakers (i'm thinking the navy gazelle's from wednesdays post.. obviously i know need them more than ever!)
So even though its quite a stand-out piece in its own right, it has some really great options for outfit, which we also know, pleases me greatly.
No one hit wonders here any-more ladies. Sustainable, awesome pieces only.
And this coat is most definitely that.
