Ahh houndstooth coat, i bought you and then had no idea how to style you. I know it’s a coat and therefore outerwear, so really it doesn’t need to go with the outfit underneath, call it style-ocd, but i like my coat to match my outfit. Which can be annoying and a little fussy, but it’s my thing and i’m ok with it. Back to the coat, it is a recent Primark purchase after deciding i obviously didn’t have enough coats in my life and there was a space in my coat loving heart for another (i have a big heart, what can i say;) I tried on a few but nothing felt right, infact they all pretty much looked like i had borrowed it from lost and found, the sleeves were mostly too long, the shoulders were to big and the length wasn’t right, making me look like lil orphan Annie,lol!
After quite a few coats i settled on this one. But i’m just not sure. I guess it was a rushed purchase and something still doesn’t feel quite right with it.
Opinions ladies please, what do we think? Is it a keep or return? (i only tried it on here to see what it was like from a 3rd person perspective,it’s still tags intact , which makes me wonder if i loved it would i have ripped those tags off? ponder ponder)
Teal and mustard what a great autumn combo. I absolutely love the contrast between these two colours. I am now on the look out for more teal and mustard combinations.
Is it a colour scheme you would try?
As for the shoes, as it is Shoetober, i went for the classic pointed black heel. The shoe every lady should have in their show armoury.
The goes with everything, always chic, will never be out of fashion perfect shoe. I’ve had these simple matalan beauties for over a year and i have to say they are still a complete go-to shoe for me.
