This is one of those go-to winter outfits that works in a lot of situations. In this instance, I wore it when running some errands in town and for an evening of Christmas shopping with Harry. It’s cosy enough to keep the cold out but it’s not bulky. It’s smart enough for a coffee meeting or a casual lunch and festive enough to wear to a Christmas market.
I saw the coat when I was out on my lunch hour and bought it. I’d been looking for something like this for a while. I have casual puffer jackets and faux fur aplenty, but nothing like this. The colours, the cut and the price point, (£68), were exactly what I had in mind. I’ll wear this burgundy tweed coat with over dresses, skirts, jeans and cropped trousers.
The pink longline funnel neck sweater is as soft and comfortable as it looks. This will be a winter staple, especially when I’m watching my son play football in what can be freezing conditions. It’s not always easy to find a sweater long enough to cover the old bottom.
The crossbody bag is the Erin by Hotter. It’s large enough to fit everything in, but not so capacious that I lose things in it. I love different textures; it works beautifully with the burgundy tweed coat.
I’m wearing the same lift and shape jeans that I wore with a cable knit sweater and teddy borg coat. They look so much neater with boots than skinny jeans do. The boots are the Mercer by Van Dal. They are super soft and comfortable. I walked for miles in them around Amsterdam.
As well as the midnight croc colourway, I have the boots in jungle green too, (and which are currently reduced). I’ve worn both with a dress which you can see below. Click on the photo to take you to the blog post.
My bag is a gift from Hotter and my boots are a gift from VanDal Shoes.
