(Coat: COS, T-shirt: Petit Bateau, Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: Topshop, Bag: C/O Henri Bendel, Bangle: Urban Outfitters)

Earlier this month, I was lucky enough to pay my first ever (flying) visit to the beautiful city of Brussels, in Belgium. Having never taken the Eurostar for anything other than visits to Paris, it was all incredibly exciting getting to see the sights of somewhere new, and indulgence in a few local delicacies whilst I was there (read: all the chocolate). Having been invited by my top pal Carrie and the stunning chocolatier Elisabeth, our trip was largely focussed on sampling some treats from some of the brands independent artisans and getting to know the city (and it's special hideaways) a little better too...

With the trip spent largely pattering around the cities cobbles and braving seasonal showers, it was all too necessary to bring my number one love along with me; this pink COS coat. Having only had it a week, I have literally worn it every day- and can assure you it goes with pretty much everything I wear. Pink, a new neutral? It may well be. Pairing it with some sensible shoes (for once) and my favourite jeans, we explored the city until dark, before settling in for chats, chocolate and chinwags galore. Stay tuned for another post and a biiig guide too!

    Love the coat - I've been on the hunt for a pink one for ages but can never seem to find one the right shade/cut. This one looks great on you!

  22. That pink coat is such an amazing color! I wanted to buy a pink coat last year but wasn't sure if the pastel trend would stick around. Looking at these pictures definitely makes me want to invest in one this fall.

  31. I love the tone of the pink on the coat because it's not really pastel like most pink coats I see but it is also still very neutral so would pair well with a lot of items.
