This look encompasses three of my autumn obsessions - the trench coat (who can live without one???), the pussy-bow blouse (perfect for the office) and the lace-up flat. Oddly, I wasn't keen on the shoes at first, I remember seeing a more lacey version from Topshop that my sister bought over the summer and thinking 'God no!' But now I'm sold - I was quite picky though and they had to be simple, no frills and, of course, pointy!
I see this outfit as a typical casual Friday at the office look, quite smart because of the blouse and coat but I bit more comfy in flats and a comfortable skirt. Don't you just love the shape of this coat though? Such a gem at H&M (I did not intend that to rhyme - honest!) I saw it last year and had to have it, it's such great quality too I love to tie it up at the back as it's slightly big on me when loose but looks just as nice done up at the front.
I've not been feeling too well the last few days so apologies for some inactivity and a slow response to comments. Perhaps it's just the weather but I really feel so tired and drained - although I suspect I over did it a bit last week with work, gym and running around..note to self...remember to put scarf on from now until June!
