IN THE CITY THEIR HEARTS START TO SING

I’m stepping in to Autumn in my own way! Snapping up a couple of style basics for the coming months whilst styling them in way that won’t let go of the sun just yet, suits me just fine. I tell ya, I’m quite the trench coat addict. Every year (no word of a lie!) I end up with a new trench coat whether I need one or not – I think it’s the classic style and shape that appeals to me – that or thinking I’m a detective in a 1940s mystery film – you can take your pick at my reasoning! 😉

I normally go for the uber classic camel shade, but this year I’m going all out in this chic deep red. I genuinely think I prefer this autumnal hue to my usual staple – it’s so much more of a statement and rather conveniently matches the pale shades of my rosy cheeks and red lips. I’ve styled it with a dress worn as a top (I’m not the only one that does this, right?!) that’s dotted with rusty hues to make the colour of the coat pop, plus some denim shorts and bare legs whilst it’s just about still acceptable to go without tights!

If you fancy some more trench coat inspiration, head over to the Laura Ashley blog where you can see my snaps along with some other sassy ladies!
