Are you all preparing to wrap up warm? Seems we're heading for some colder weather, I wanted to say finally, but now it's arrival is imminent I've somewhat changed my mind!
Still nothing to report on the outerwear front, but I'll keep you updated of any significant changes.
I thought today I'd share my vintage trench coat. Trench coats are pretty much a standard, classic style and stand the test of time. Mine, however you can very easily see what era it came from, yes - the 80's, can you spot what it is? You've got it of course the raglan sleeves! I'm not sure how it became so old all of a sudden, after wearing it on so many occasions throughout the past years. I'm all for a bit of vintage though and this one will keep going for years, that's so long as it fits me!
I've teamed this with a recent purchase from Matalan, these burgundy straight leg trousers have a high waist with belt loops (I always have trouble keeping my trousers around my waist) so I try to make sure any trousers I buy have got them.
From Matalan costing £16 you can't really go wrong with this item and when it goes out of colour fashion they can be relegated to either the storage section of my wardrobe or donated to charity.
I matched in a long line tunic also from Matalan years ago, but I love the colours, style and material. With colourful burgundy, ochre, cream and black I can pick so many other items to pair it with. The material is a lovely silky fabric, therefore free from creases. A beige court shoe along with the essential beige scarf completed today's look. Already in the wardrobe and from Clarks and Primark respectively.
How do you like the vintage coat? Do you have anything that you class as vintage in you clothes collection?
My coat was bought in Wallis, but I've spotted some enticing bargains in Debenhams right now, with so many different choices there's bound to be one just right for you! So what are you waiting for?
Until tomorrow. Bye. X
