I think I have a slight addiction to coats this year, especially with so many styles to choose from, but my 3 favourite coats to have in my wardrobe are a parker, a trench and a classic camel coat.
A camel wool coat goes with almost everything, from dresses and heels to jumpers, skirts and a pair of boots, while keeping you nice and warm during the colder months. For a more casual look you can wear it with jeans and a pair of trainers.
I bought this coat during the sales and chose a style with a faux fur collar, but there are some lovely ones around that have a plain collar which look equally as good.
What’s your favourite style of coat. Do you have a top 3, or do you have one that you wear with everything.

I love hunting down bargains and finding items that will get worn time after time, no matter what the season. I had been lucky enough to receive some high street vouchers for my birthday so during a shopping trip I picked up a few new items including this beautiful red floral dress from Monsoon.
It’s made of soft jersey material with a deep V neckline and a tie waist so it gives a very flattering shape. I love dresses like these as they are so versatile and can be worn all year round with boots and a coat during the colder months or a pair of open toe flats and your favourite tote bag in the warmer months.
I wore the dress for for a lunch date last week and styled it with my favourite knee high boots and a black box bag which is a perfect size for keeping a few essentials in.
Thank you for reading this post. Do you have a favourite go-to dress or outfit that you just love to wear?

With the cold weather well and truly upon us, it’s time to wrap up warm in those lovely winter coats that you’ve had in the wardrobe while it’s been so unseasonably mild.
For a busy day out and about last week I wore this long grey wool coat with a faux fur collar, which was perfect for both warmth and style. I found it in a local charity shop and it was in perfect condition.
I teamed it with a light grey cotton jumper and a dark grey wool skirt. I then accessorized the outfit with a grey wool fedora, black mini grab bag, purple check scarf and black knee high boots.
Let me know what you think and I’d love to know what your top winter coats are this year.
As usual straight after Christmas I hit the high street in the hope of getting a few bargains and would most definitely be stopping off for coffee and cake along the way.
So I wanted to wear something smart but also comfortable, just in case I ended up trying on potential purchases!
I reached for my favourite leather biker jacket with a faux fur collar and lining. Here I’ve worn it with a chunky short sleeve roll neck jumper and skinny jeans.
I’ve also added a baker boy cap for a slightly retro look.
It’s such a versatile jacket and would look equally good with a floral dress and knee high boots.
