I think you all know by now that I'm a quality over quantity kind of person. In an ideal world, I'd have a (still reasonably large) capsule wardrobe of things that can interchange seamlessly. Being a blogger, that's a hard feat to achieve. So, half of my wardrobe is made up of really high-quality, higher end items that I'll keep and wear for years to come, and half of it is more trend-led, disposable stuff that I know I'll have grown tired of by this time next year. 

I recently added a piece to the 'forever' side of my wardrobe; this coat. To me, it's sort of monochrome preppy. It reminds me of a man's boating jacket! I've always loved mixing quite androgynous pieces (structured, oversized jackets, bow-ties, suits) with the hyper feminine (ruffles, pussybows, bright red lipstick) this red jacquard suit paired with a seriously ott ruffled blouse springs to mind - feel free to take a look at that look here, although I was considerably more svelte then, sporting a misjudged dip dye and still taking photos in my back garden. So innocent. So pure. Treasure the mems. 

This coat really fits the bill in terms of my style and despite it being quite 'statement', I have plenty of ways to style this in mind.

What do you think? Do you prefer having a more 'disposable' wardrobe or are you someone who likes to invest in pieces with more longevity? Let me know!


  1. I'm such a disposable wardrobe kind of girl, as much as I try and invest, the lure of Primark always pulls me in! Love this outfit, I don't think you look like a boater chap at all! That ruffle top is gorgeous too xx

  2. Such a gorgeous blazer! xx


  3. I am more inclined to invest in pieces with more longevity. However, I want to try to buy more trendy pieces because they are more fun. Love the coat!

  4. I suppose as I have more of a pinup style, I have a large-ish wardrobe but I am investing in a few key pieces that can easily transition into several outfits. Also I love that circle bag!!


  5. Gorgeous look! That coat is amazing :) I suppose when I was younger I was more disposable with clothing whereas now that I've got older I tend to invest in pieces more for longevity :)
