Autumn Prepping in Grey

Since this coat is already proving so popular (thankyou so much for all the click throughs & buys!) I thought I’d swing the spotlight right onto it and show and tell you just why this is one of my autumn hero pieces…

About February this year, I got severe coat lust for something very particular. Wool, cut like a man’s coat, so, loose and long and tied with a belt. Preferably in camel. I went so far as to buy two second-hand coats which were almost there but not quite – they were both fitted at the waist which was the complete opposite of the look I was after. What I wanted was well and truly impossible to get so late in the seasonal day.

So for this autumn, I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled and as soon as I spotted this slate grey (grey comes a very close second to camel for winter coats, fyi, and is mega ‘in’ this winter) baby on the Boden site I knew I’d struck gold. Almost. It just had to fit. Which for me, being so little, is always a bit touch and go. But Boden are very good on sizing and I was thrilled to whip it on and find it fitted just right. As well as looked just right. Just the way I had imagined.

The perfect coat for pulling on over jeans (I’m wearing a brilliant pair of skinnies by Hudson, btw) and tee and still feeling that magical combination of chic-but-cool, laidback-but-loves-life and so forth. For under £200, pretty well priced, given what some winter coats come in at. As I said before, get it before it goes

Ps. It also comes in navy and hot pink. Given my recent navy splurge at Reiss (more on that coming soon!), the navy is making its way onto my list too…
