Orange is the new black

Last year I saw this coat in magazines and on bloggers and fell in love…I missed out on buying it but bought it this year via eBay…hoorah!

My boyfriend looked at this coat and as politely as he could said…”Please dont wear that when youre out with me.”

OK, so its not to everyones taste (my boyfriend included) but it definitely makes a statement!  Worn with a simple outfit of black polo neck and skinny jeans this coat looks so striking…and I love it! 

My shoes are from New Look and I have hardly taken them off since I bought them! They are so comfortable and perfect for Autumn dressing. They cost £19.99 and I think they are a great AW16 wardrobe addition.

I love the Autumn when it’s chilly but the sun still shines, and this coat makes me feel sunny whatever the weather.

So statement coats, love or hate?  And more importantly, how much clothing do you have in your wardrobe that your other half hates?!?

Myleene Klass Intarsia Jumper

I saw a picture of Myleene Klass on her Instagram wearing this jumper from her Very/Littlewoods range and I knew I just had to have it!  Even though I love fashion that happens very rarely.

At £35 it wasn’t an impulse buy but I have a Very account and they are great at sending money off codes so it would of been rude not to!


I ordered the size 10 and I’d say its true to size and maybe even a little generous.  The knit is lovely and fine and there a cool zip detail on the cuffs and edge detail on the inside of the arm seams.  Its also plain grey on the back so not too busy.  I teamed mine with a faux leather mini skirt, black opaque tights and knee boots.

And best of all after I posted this pic on Instagram Myleene herself liked it and added a ‘love’ comment.  Praise indeed!

It’s now been reduced to £28 – so grab it while you can.
