It’s been a while since my last in the series, so I thought on this dreary Saturday, while I catch up on The Graham Norton Show, that I’d look back over some more of my outfits since my last post and let you know where I found these style gems.
This coat was a bargain I got from TKMAXX a few years ago, but there’s lots of amazing blue/teal coats around here’s three I love that I found o ASOS.
I’ve always wanted black hi top Converse and this year I finally got a pair from Si for my birthday. They have already become my go-to shoes. So versatile and seems to add an element of laid back coolness to any outfit. They’re also incredibly comfortable.

The ASOS Farleigh jeans are by far my favourite jeans, and we know how lengthy and difficult the pursuit of finding jeans that suit you can be. Now I’ve finally discovered by ideal ones, I wish I had the finances to buy each single colour and distress level they have. They’re a slim mum jean, so have enough of that 90’s feel to be current and on trend, but still flattering for those who have body’s that don’t look their optimum in the full on mom fit.

I got these wide leg pipe velvet trouser from Topshop last winter. I love them because they can be casual or luxe and are just a joy to wear, although I can’t help but stroke myself when I do. Velvet is a big style story this season so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the perfect velvet trouser for you. I’ve linked to a similar pair from Topshop.
One of those elusive items I’ve been hunting for months if not years. Not hard to find, but difficult to find one that was the right fit or price tag. I finally found my dream black and red long sleeve in the menswear department of H&M. I wanted a groungey slouch fit to it, with long sleeves you could hide cold hands inside of. If you want a more feminine fit then And Other Stories have a great one, linked here.

This became one of my most liked Instagram posts of recents times, with most of the attention being laid on from these checked trousers from Boohoo. I actually got the whole suit, because I want to do a full on tartan look to the next swish event I go to, but that’s what’s so great about suits and separates – you have so many more outfit options and ways to style them up. The huge plus point for these ones are the elasticated waist which make them feel really comfy and effortless to wear.

The Jacket was a great find from New Look a few months ago and is no longer in store, but if you like the boyfriend fit, slightly washed out look Bershka are great as are Monki. But I found this great one on ASOS too which isn’t far off.
I love to deliver a pop of colour via accessories, whether that be a hat, scarf or shoes. I think the spark of yellow courtesy of the beanie not only adds impact to this look it always taps into the colour of the trousers to bring the look together. This is an old one from Topman but I found an identical one on ASOS below.

All these items were either birthday presents or things I bought with birthday money. I never thought I could get away with wearing red for some reason, but for some reason this year I’ve been absolutely loving it, and don’t even care if it suits my colouring or not.
This has now become my favourite item in my wardrobe. I feel instantly cheered when I wear it. It feels really good quality, and the voluminous sleeves give it a high end designer feel, and stop it feeling a bog standard knit.
On the them of red jumpers, although different in style, this cable knit one from ASOS is dreamy so check it out – http://rstyle.me/n/cvcj73ccv6p
Unfortunately I’m not being very original with my choice of Houndstooth for my winter coat, but I don’t mind because when it comes to outerwear I tend to prefer to go for classic and timeless so I can switch them in and out every year and not feel dated whichever one I choose that day. This approach to coat shopping has meant I have a great collection I can turn to every year, meaning I don’t need to buy more than one each winter.
A good tip for shopping for them is that most high street stores are doing them so make sure you find the one that has the fit you’re looking for (I chose a boxy mannish fit) and the sort of checked pattern you prefer. You’ll also find that if they have a coat in this weave they’ll likely have trousers there too.
Here’s a few others I found. My set was from H & M.
