jacket (sold out .. similar here), trousers & jumper – h&m, converse – cloggs via eBay, rings – forever21
When I first saw this brick red coat during the summer, I completely fell in love but I’ve probably only worn it a handful of times. I’m going to be honest it’s just not a versatile piece and because it’s a little too oversized and floaty for my frame I have to be really careful how I style it. But as it’s a beautiful colour that’s perfect for Autumn I am going to try get more wear out of it and see if I can make a few more outfits with it.
I’ve found keeping the rest of my outfit really neutral and simple is key, especially when wearing a brighter colour, I am not really one for standing out but in this coat it’s hard not to. The trousers and converse have me well in my comfort zone and the jumper is interesting without drawing too much attention away from the coat. I love the high neckline, it’s not too much that my neck looks completely cut off nor is it all floppy which I also dislike, I am trying to find some more tops with a similar neck, any suggestions?
Also are you loving my nail colour? It’s called Colville Mews by Nails Inc, and it’s possibly the most beautiful colour I’ve ever seen. I got it free with Glamour magazine along with a 20% off H&M when you shop instore, I ended up buying two magazines so I can give my bestie a voucher when she comes to visit next week. I’ve planned a huge shop for Monday, I’ve not stepped in a shop for about 6 months and I’m beyond excited. I need a new coat, other essentials, oh and some new trousers as I seem to be wearing these black ones all the time.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
