For quite some time now I’ve been writing more personal/lifestyle posts, positioning them alongside outfit shots of me in my latest (I hope) fashionable outfits. And while that is all well and good and my god do I feel a whole lot better when I have a good ol’ rant and get everything off my chest, sometimes it’s just nice to go back to basics.
So with that said I thought I’d share my latest OOTD post (that’s outfit of the day FYI) simply going through each piece step by step and why I paired them together.
Lets kick off then shall we, with this gorgeous camel coat. Now funnily enough I’ve never owned a camel coloured coat before and I own a lot of coats (and I really do mean A LOT.) It’s something that had been on my wish list for quite some time but I’d never really found one that flattered me. As soon as I caught sight of this one from Boden however, I was sold! I just loved the cut and the low set buttons and knew that for me it was ‘the one’ – the knight in shining (camel coloured) armour I’d been waiting for.
To give a nod to the autumnal tones we’re currently surrounded by, I paired it with a red cashmere jumper from Boden and a pair of frayed ankle grazer jeans from ASOS. The cashmere is SO soft, I could quite literally live in it forever (to be honest, I practically have been for the past two weeks…my bad) Cashmere is just one of those materials that instantly screams luxury as soon as you put it on and this one added that much needed pop colour to liven up the earthy tone of the coat. The jeans are my everyday staples – high wasted + skinny fit = perfection.
Tying the whole look together, I went for these gorgeous backless leather loafers again from Boden… bit of a theme here eh? I love the matchy matchy vibes of the two reds set apart by the denim jeans and *bonus* the shoes are super comfy which makes for one happy Kate!
For me this outfit is spot on for autumnal style. Yes it may be a tad cliche, camel and red is hardly a ground breaking colour palette for the autumn months but I love it nonetheless! It’s the perfect, cosy, everyday outfit and from me that gets a big thumbs up!
