Someone asked me recently on Instagram whether they should invest in a classic grey or camel coat…and I replied ‘grey’. But since that comment, I’ve not taken this coat off – I love the autumnal feel of it at this time of year and the fact it glides almost along the pavement as I walk.
I’ve never really thought of myself as a camel coat wearer but maybe I am. I am also enjoying wearing it with a pop of colour – so many colours compliment camel and I like the almost clash with the orange bag. Shot on a rather grey, gloomy day, the bag definitely lifts the mood.
You may have seen that I’ve been working with Stella & Dot on a few social media projects recently and been wearing a few of the items, especially the more everyday pieces – it’s one of the few affordable jewellery brands that I really think are doing something great and like most jewellery, it looks great layered. I especially love the Covet range for something a little more special – perfect for gift ideas (yes, I am trying to get my list sorted – I hate doing everything last minute!).
The boots are really old, about 5 years to be exact. I remember they were a real investment at the time, and to be honest I didn’t wear them at all last season, but Chelsea boots are back in a big way and I have fallen in love with them all over again.
They really do look like brand new still and are easy to wear all day stomping around on appointments (albeit with a bit of breaking in!).
I apologise to whom I told to invest in a grey coat for winter, I do believe it’s a good choice, but I’ll be sticking to my camel one for a while longer…
