This is the first time I’ve owned a black coat in my entire life, bar the faux fur number I have. Lemme tell ya, I’m feeling sophisticated in it. Up to the point where I trip over that same uneven pavement near work anyway. The Contrast Trim Coat by 45SEVEN at YesStyle hasn’t left my shoulders in over a week. It’s lightweight yet warm at the same time, meaning it’s pretty easy to squish myself into that awkward middle-of-three-seats seat on my train too. The wide lapels on the front are so darling and the collar can be turned up for neck warmth and to up the ante a little – never have I felt more fashunn.
Underneath, this is my go-to for a I-didn’t-even-try look. My faithful Illustrated People motif sweater, Miss Selfridge jeans circa 2007 and my heeled studded Chelsea boots. There’s something about grey (whether dark or light) and denim that is so effortlessly chic, easy to wear and get right every time, and manifest a Scandi-Parisian charm. Next on my grey sweater hitlist is a slice of Zoe Karssen. Mmm.
I guess now would also be a good time to announce some life changes too! I have a new job!! Yup — I’m hanging up my freelance socks, very sadly leaving my Arcadia girls and waving a swift and sad farewell to London. I’m super excited about my new position and can’t wait to get stuck in in the New Year when I start. Yay for fresh starts and change! (:
