Must Have Monday…

Where do you think this beauty is from then? Bright spring shade, contrast print interior, stylish swing cut with vented back flap?


Coral cotton blend jacket

Boden perhaps?

What If I told you it was £19.99?

H&M.

Kids!

My friend Alka was wearing this H&M coat at the weekend and I couldn’t get enough of it. She’s a petite lady but was wearing a (kids) size 12-14. It also goes up to a 14+ (kids size) so I reckon you could easily fit into it up to an adult size 12ish, perhaps more. I hope those of you who are bigger don’t feel excluded – that’s not the intention at all, I just had to share it as it looked so good on!

Have you got any other adult worthy kids clothes tips? (Rachel mentioned last week that adult size 10-12 can fit Bodens teenage range, meaning quite a saving!)

Happy Monday readers!

Fash Flash [Basics]: Little April Showers…

This week the weather has turned on us and we’re all left reaching for the coats and boots all over again. I refuse to listen to the people who are saying how bizarre this weather is though, many of my memories of late snowfall have been freakishly cold snaps in April and of course the traditional weather right now is April showers and sunny spells in-between. It’s enough to leave a girl unsure as to whether she’s coming or going, and when it comes to planning your outfits, it’s all about layering.

One eternally chic wardrobe staple however is the mac, perfect for spring showers and something every girl should have in her wardrobe. It’s an investment so don’t be afraid to spend some money, or if you prefer to wear your clothes to death consider looking for washable fabrics you can throw in to the machine. Here’s my edit of where to snap up a mac for spring.

  1. Black trimmed mac – MANGO £79.99
  2. Hobbs NW3 Wentworth Trench £189.
  3. Double breasted (short) trench, MANGO £49.99 (also available in navy and red)
  4. Cream raincoat, Oasis£48
  5. Full skirted navy trench, OasisNow £50 (from £80)
  6. Cotton trench coat, Burberry Brit at My-Wardrobe.com £595

If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop to try a few different styles, or want something a little more fashion forward, Zara comes up trumps again. The generous collars are very high-fashion and there are plenty of clever details like leather trims and swing backs if you don’t need a belt.

Of course, I can’t resist a splash of colour and there is simply nothing better on a rainy day than a pop of bright colour to cheer you up. All of these Macs are from ASOS and I’d go for any of them in a heart beat, but I’m really coveting the yellow 🙂


Yellow plastic rainmac – £40 ASOS, red rain mac – £199 Lacoste, green pleated swing mac, £50 ASOS

Here’s to staying stylish despite the English weather…
