It’s official, autumn is here! I can feel that nippy chill in the air in the morning, I am thankful for a cosy duvet (might be time for some new PJs) and a central heating system that seems to know what it’s doing! But mainly coats, oh how I love autumn for the coats!
Wrapping up, belting up, zipping up in swathes of gorgeous woollen fabric, faux furs, shaggy styles, collared and lapelled and animal prints. I want them all – and you can see them all on my new shoppable Pinterest board The Best Autumn Coats! Including this long navy belted number from Baukjen (always forget what great pieces Baukjen does! Need this super classic rollneck!) and at least two other between-breakfast-and-school-run on-phone purchases, oops – this Topshop leopard and this gorgeous furry thing too! (The brown version of this is sold out on Jakke and Urban Outfitters, sob!)
Did you see the wiggle wiggle boomerang we shot while taking this pics? I only mention it to lead you into the reason why I had flowers in my hand (not pictured) which was that we’d just come from the breakfast launch of a new bracelet Tembo charity collection by the quite fabulous force of nature that is Kelly from The London Chatter and Auree Jewellery. 100% of profit is to go to Tusk.org and For Rangers to support rangers in their fight against poachers who are cruelly hunting so many beautiful and vulnerable endangered animals like the majestic elephants in Kenya – ‘tembo’ means elephant.
#TLCxAuree Tembo charity collection by The London Chatter & Auree Jewellery
The Tembo charity collection bracelets are absolutely perfect – am wearing the gold circle and rose gold initialled one – made to be worn every day (I’ve just layered mine on top of my others!) and start from £50 but you can spend more to have an initial engraved. Such a fantastic cause, please do get involved, I’m already planning Christmas and birthday presents with these!
