Let me just apologise for the hair, no, it’s not a wig left over from Hallowe’en but a result of the ravages of chlorine now that I swim regularly. Grey is the least of my worries – I’m now on a rescue mission!
Finally, I found a nice little pea coat in black by Theory. It buttons high up which is a must because I get cold. It’s unlined and is the perfect length on me – any longer and the proportions look a bit odd. The sleeves are a touch long but I get away with just turning them under since there are no details on the cuffs. The back is gently shaped and I wasn’t sure about it at first but realised this is a very good thing for someone my height and frame who can’t ‘absorb’ excess volume. The main concern is the shoulder width which I knew would be more flattering with Theory than some other brands out there. I have to say the peacoat style is so right for me because it’s the perfect blend of casual and tailored. I wanted a grey peacoat as well but that would be plain greedy wouldn’t it? 🙂 I’ve layered up with a thermal sleeveless vest by M&S, H&M grey sweatshirt also, Gap 1969 dark denim from here last and some Italian Chelsea boots that are indestructable so far. By the way, I’m very much into my lower heeled footwear and can’t imagine adding anymore heels. I really love this Gap Kids’ stripey scarf 🙂 The colours are perfect for me. I’ll have the cashmere ones out soon enough.
Thanks for reading!
