TREND: The Pink Coat

zara pink coat
Coat: Zara

Meet my new baby! These days I pay less attention to trends than I used to but I had really fallen for the idea of a powder pink coat. It was love at first sight with this and although the weather is still warm it was one of those ones I had to grab quickly because it's sure to be a sell-out. I'm not a huge wearer of colour but I will always make an exception for pink and although this shape is lot more princessy than my usual oversized coats it's kinda nice feeling like K-Middy! At £79.99 it was quite an investment buy but I think I'm going to be getting a lot of wear out of's such an easy way to update your wardrobe for A/W13. I plan on wearing this with pale neutrals like above, I think it'll make a refreshing change instead of the typical dark, wintery shades. It also looks gorgeous with oxblood/wine/burgundy/whatever you wanna call it and it'll add a lift to my favourite all black outfits too. Winter, I'm ready for ya!*

  1. Oh my goodness it's lovely! Can't wait to see this in an OOTD... I've been loving the pink coat look, but I might hold off on this trend as I do already have a pink jacket... Ooh but the temptation might prove too much! xx

  2. You're going to look absolutely gorgeous in this Josie! I tried it on but it just wasn't me, but I know you're going to look soo pretty in it, you could pull anything off. I love Winter, I'm craving my long sleeves, layers and knitwear! xxx

  3. V. v. v. jealous!! I reckon it's going to be a sell -out here's hoping Primark make a dupe ASAP. I cannot wait to see how you style it- I can imagine it looks wonderful with oxblood though.

  4. Eeep, I love it!! You're going to look amazing in this. I love how you mostly buy investment pieces, it's something I need to keep doing! As Viv once said, 'Buy less, choose well.' YES.
