Ever since I was very young, my mum has dressed well and as I have grown up, there are certain pieces that I have just had to snaffle off her. This coat is a case in point, I had been eyeing it up for ages and when she said she was going to get rid of it, I practically snatched it out of her hands!
|Dress: vintage Laura Ashley (stolen from Mum), coat: Dannimac (stolen from Mum), belt: vintage Laura Ashley, boots: Carvela via John Lewis, bag: Fiorelli (gift)|
I wasn't entirely sure about pairing the coat with this dress but it was so cold and the flared shapes of my macs just looked wrong with the length of the dress. Plus, when I get something new to wear I put it on immediately!
Sleeves and a rather fantastic daisy print = dress love! This dress is another piece I stole from my mum's wardrobe, I loved the print and the length is perfect for the colder weather, long enough to keep my ankles warm but short enough for the hem not to drag in the mud and grime that accompanies the rain at this time of year...
A preview of my rather fantastic boots. I bought these the other week from John Lewis and I have barely taken them off. They are so comfy and perfect for the Autumn with a chunky heel and most importantly, grippy soles! No more falling over on slippy leaves for me!
Do you steal clothes from your mum's wardrobe? How do you prepare for the Autumn weather?
