As much as I love Summer, I do find it a tricky season to dress for. I’m too pale to wear white, to chubby to feel comfortable in a bikini and too self-conscious to go make-up free. I’m much happier when I can wear black tights, cover my bingo wings and rock a killer coat. I don’t wanna toot my own horn, but I have some damn good coats in my wardrobe and I wanna show them off! This Boden Leopard Print Coat is one I have been excited about wearing since the heat of summer. I just love it! The wool is luxe, the cut is perfect and it’s just the perfect mix of looking smart, feeling comfortable and being cosy when there’s a cool breeze, but not stifling hot on the tube. What more could a girl ask for?! Add a little Chanel into the mix and I’m good to go!
The Simple things In Life…
With Summer quickly fading, I’m starting to get really excited about the arrival of Autumn. I don’t know about you guys, but there are so many things I love about this time of year. I love the leaves changing colour, chilly days filled with bright sunshine, ordering hot drinks in Starbucks, wearing winter coats, lighting scented candles, feeling cosy in a onesie, saying no to invitations for no reason other than ‘hibernation’ … It’s just a lovely time of year! If anyone wants to join me for a Pumpkin Spiced Latte, hit me up!
