(Coat: C/O A.P.C via FarFetch, Shirt: C/O Vivetta via FarFetch, Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: Zara, Bag: Mulberry, Earrings: Topshop)

After somewhat of a beautiful Indian summer and an extended period for it to be totally socially acceptable to eat ice cream, wear flip flops and not talk about Christmas in September; I think we might now be finally edging in to Autumn- where I can start dusting off my thermals and seriously pondering whether it's really time to pack away my denim shorts and Birkenstocks (you never know, ok)...

Anyway, with October comes three things- pumpkin spiced lattes (if you're that way inclined; I'm more of a hot chocolate girl myself), Halloween (along with attempting the Monster Mash) and coat and jacket shopping- the latter being my favourite, naturally. Although I do tend to generally have a habit to pick up the brightest coat that catches my eye (previous years offerings have included red, pink, pale blue and white)- this season I'm getting a little grown up around here- and we're talking jackets for the long term too.


Okay, so the classic peacoat certainly isn't the new kid on the block, but it's a gap my wardrobe has had for a good while- and I'm pretty sure everyone needs a timeless 'hey-I-go-with-everything!' coat right? Cue FarFetch. It's the kind of item I know I'll have for years, and looks just as wonderful piled on with boyfriend jeans and bretons (a la Chung) as it does with a band tee and button up skirt. So, parading it around with my favourite new shirt, the most well-loved jeans and a festive pop of red- I'm pretty sure I can certainly introduce you to a new solid wardrobe staple (and maybe I'll even welcome the cooler months in so I can wear it too)...

Thank you to FarFetch for working with me on this post!

  20. I recently got a navy pea coat (although it was from M&S so not quite so luxurious!) and I haven't taken it off since. It just goes with everything!

  22. Gorgeous photos! This is a beautiful coat, it creates such a classic and chic silhouette. Plus your shirt makes such a statement piece, especially worn with red lipstick as you did here. On a side note, I really don't get the whole Pumpkin Spice Latte trend - they're not that good! I prefer hot chocolate as well, you can never go wrong with these :D
