#OOTD - The Pink Coat

25 comments
It had to happen sometime... Winter has finally hit the UK with a vengeance and I for one am freezing! But despite the cooler weather, Kent was bathed in the most beautiful sunlight last Saturday, and once I was wrapped up nice and warm, it was a pleasure to be outside. There's something really lovely about a crisp and clear Winter's day, even if it's bitingly cold, and I'm really happy that Mike and I were able to capture it in these outfit shots. (Lucky Mike - if there's one thing he loves more than trailing around the shops with me on a Saturday afternoon, it's playing fashion photographer. ;-))

I've been wanting to do a daytime outfit post for ages. This one features the black Topshop jumper I first wrote about here, and the Zara handbag I showed you here. I've been wearing them with Topshop Jamie jeans in a mid-blue wash, black suede over the knee boots and a chunky gold necklace. At this time of year, outerwear and cosy accessories often take centre stage, and I've really being loving this pink coat from Zara. Because of the colour, I didn't think I'd get that much wear out of it, but actually it's surprisingly versatile and adds interest to a simple outfit.

This jumper is incredibly warm, and with a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath plus the coat and scarf I was quite happy to stand around in the cold having my picture taken. That's a good thing to know if you're a wimp about the cold like I am! I don't see this coat on the Zara website any more, though it may still be available in store. The green version is available online and is equally lovely - my sister has it so I can say this with authority! I also love the fact that the fur collar is detachable. While I'm loving it now, I reckon taking it off will give the coat a new lease of life come early March, when the weather's still cool but I'm getting impatient for Spring/Summer fashion.

What do you guys think of this outfit? If it's cold where you are, what have you been wrapping up in?

  6. The cold has been horrible lately! I've not been a massive fun of having to leave for work in a morning and fight the cold air. Winter sun is always so stunning though. I love the scarf and hat.

  7. Such a gorgeous coat! I just bought a new pale pink coat with a lovely faux fur collar from Warehouse, it's so warm and I feel like Elle Woods in it, haha :) I love yours too, I think it's so important to get a nice, well-made coat to keep the chill out in winter.

  8. I love that coat, it's such a gorge colour! I always have to take outfit photos when the sun is shining these days, as the weather has been so bad recently I feel like I am wasting the day aha'
