worn: mustard coat and a leopard shirt

Another post from the archives today; this has been sat in my draft folder since last October, or there abouts – check out those lovely little yellow flowers and golden leaves! This makes me feel two things; nostalgic for crisp Autumn days and relief that the worst of the Winter is (touch wood) finally over, and I can get back to pottering about in the garden, wearing more interesting clothes and not ending up with birds-nest hair every time I leave the house!

My mustard coat remains my prize possession; I almost sold it towards the end of last year, but for various reasons it didn’t happen – I’m so glad I ended up keeping it, as it’s pretty much my favourite thing in the world (excluding the children, obviously… ahem) and kind of makes an outfit of itself. I put it with my old faithful ankle boots, some skinny black trousers and a charity shop leopard blouse, and finished it off with a lovely satchel from Scaramanga.

    Good job you didn't sell it. It's a keeper. I found a pair of shoes in my loft that I thought I had sold on and I have to say that I have that NEW shoes feeling all over again! Elinor x

    perfect coat! And that blouse is amazing, good find! I've never been confident enough to wear animal print, it's just floral shirts all the way for me!
