It’s March! Spring has sprung! Hallelujah! Enough about scarves and gloves and mittens, let’s change the subject to something a little more interesting. On Wednesday I drooled over a very pricey Maje Spring coat. As finances dictated that this would not be mine, I began to peruse more wallet-friendly options. Not that I’m in the market for a new coat right now, but it’s always nice to get a feel for what’s out there … who knows? I might suddenly have a change of heart! For me, Spring is all about coats and jackets. I maintain it doesn’t really matter what you wear underneath. Pop on a great coat and you’re good to go. I’m not talking about macs; I mean a great little coat that will instantly dress up an outfit.
I debated … should I save the best ‘til last or open with what I think is a beauty? But this is such a gorgeous coat, that I couldn’t possibly wait til the end of the post to tell you about it. The Bright Floral Boucle coat from Topshop. Deee-vine! I absolutely adore this coat.
Isn’t it a beauty? It would be stunning whether worn over jeans and a tee-shirt or an LBD. (or an L Grey D for those of us who suffer from scalp psoriasis!)
This next one I spied in Benetton. Annoyingly, their online store is down right now, but if memory serves me correctly, it’s around the hundred euro mark (don’t quote me on that!). The picture doesn’t really do it justice as in reality it’s not quite so bulky; it’s quite simply a very pretty swing style coat, perfect for this time of year.
I’m sticking this one in as well although it doesn’t really fit in with the Flaky rules that I’ve been preaching all year i.e. no dark colours on your shoulders. But not everyone with psoriasis has scalp issues, so here you are, the asymmetric zip coat from Next. Loving the style of this.
So, are you a coat or jacket person? Or do you tend to wear both?
Finally, those of you who follow me on Facebook will have already seen this, but I was very interested to learn that the British model, Cara Delevingne announced last week that she suffers from psoriasis. Whilst we occasionally hear this from celebrities, we rarely see evidence to support their claim. Cara however, strode down the catwalk, making no attempt to hide it. My hat off to her … I don’t think I’d have been so brave!
