Sky Blue Coat / Embellished Collar Blouse / White Pointed Heels
Coat & blouse : ZARA. Trousers : River Island. Shoes : M&S. Earrings : New Look.
The sky has been beautifully blue this weekend, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this sky blue coat. I instagrammed (is that even a verb?) this outfit a few weeks ago and it proved rather popular, so I thought I'd go 'the whole hog' (fab phrase) and share the full outfit with you!
It's definitely a coat for a slightly nippy spring day. As you might be able to tell, it's quite thick, and I've made the error of wearing this on a slightly warmer day and have cooked like a turkey in my own beautifully blue tinfoil. I wouldn't be surprised if this blouse disintegrated any time soon as I'm wearing it to death, it just seems so versatile! I'll mention that It's a bit see through, but as long as you don't pair it with a neon bra (unless bra-flashing is your thing) I'd thoroughly recommend it!
I should also mention the trousers; I applaud River Island for these, as so often when I try on a pair of tailored-type trousers in Topshop or Zara, they're so restrictive and not very accommodating for when one might need to do bendy things. I don't know what bendy things might be necessary (I know what you're thinking and you can stop that immediately you rude person) but it's nice to have the option. Many a time I've ripped a Topshop trouser. I do have a habit of sitting on the floor so maybe that's it. Trousers made for fully grown adults probably don't cater to people who like to sit cross legged on the floor like a toddler.
