Green Coat of Dreams (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

Ok so i've been banging on about this Green Coat since i got it a mere few weeks ago. It has been on constant repeat and i don't even care if every outfit is based around this coat right now. Seeing as we're still in what feels like the depths of winter most days its nice to have this giant cuddle of a coat to wear. Plus it just seems to go with everything. So wear it I shall be, for the foreseeable at least. I also picked these Red boots up after being on the hunt for the perfect pair (not too high, comfy yet smart) and they're a delight for the feet. I was a little bit cautious that the red and green in the outfit would scream 'Christmas' But i think being at opposite ends and broken with the neutrals makes it work.
It always feels a little late in the season to be buying coats and boots, especially as all the shops are being filled with pastel floaty pieces. But in truth, it will still be cold here for quite a while enabling much more wear before they get put in to storage for their return appearance in Autumn.
The other great thing about shopping late in the season is, of course, the bargains. Both these items had a huge saving on them (30% off i believe) which makes me love them all the more. 

Have you bought anything you love late in the season?

  1. I think Red and Green are really good together. Not Chriistmassy at all. Have a great weekend Rachel, link with me if you wish xx

  2. This combo looks great - I love pairing bold colours. As for the weather, I thought it had turned into spring here the other day and almost put away my winter coat before it returned to freezing cold temperatures thefollowing day. And as for late season bargains, I bagged a pair of silver ankle boots in the New Look sale for a tenner!

  3. Love that emerald green coat!! Especially paired with a striped shirt. I would've never thought to pair the two but they look so pretty together. Thanks for the outfit inspo + link up. Have a great weekend!

  4. Love this look!! The green looks great on you!

  5. Gorgeous coat! I love the pops of red with the boots and lipstick. Your hair looks amazing! Hope you have a great weekend :-)

  6. I think this is the perfect time to buy these pieces--they're usually on sale, you can wear them a couple times yet at the start of the next time you wear them--they still seem new!!
    Love the green & happy st paddy day!!

  7. That's a gorgeous coat! I'm not a big fan of green but that coat is stunning. And I love how you styled it with those red boots.

  8. Oh my, Rachel! I need this coat in my life! I even checked for it its availability, but alas, my size is sold out! Plus I don't know if they ship to the US. But now I am going on a quest to find a similar coat in the same hue! Absolutely gorgeous. And it really does work with the fab red boots without looking Christmas-y!


  9. This green coat is gorgeous, and I love how you paired it with the red boots!

  10. Such a gorgeous look! Your green coat is beautiful and I am loving your hair!

  13. That's a great coat! You'll get to enjoy it now while it's still cold and how great will it be to pull it out in the fall?! The red boots are fabulous, too.

  15. Wonderful new hair style.I saw you in Catherine´s Link up and had to come over to tell you how fabulous you look. The combo of green and red got straight to my heart.
    Glad to join you

  16. I always love your style and this look just confirms that. That pop of red in the shoes is perfect!

  17. Love the green and the red together! xx

  18. This looks super on you, and I think you can wear these colours together and not think 'christmas'! I tried green jeans and red jumper recently, but it now-where-near looked as good as this. Jacqui
