Crunching through the leaves...

Stereotypical title I know! Recently Joules got in touch to see if I was interested in reviewing a piece from their new Autumn range and I jumped at the chance as they are a brand I really love. I chose this beautiful navy Portia wool peacoat and couldn't have been more excited to try it. It was delivered to my office and when I unwrapped it, all of my colleagues were cooing over it and stroking it. What more can you ask for in a coat?! I wore this outfit for my birthday and the coat was the perfect finishing touch for crunching through the leaves in the park. I look slightly like a flasher in this picture but there really is no good way to show off the lining of your coat! This is the perfect Autumn outfit in my eyes, there's nothing better than cosy coats and woolly knits for when the temperatures drop...

Coat: c/o Joules, jumper:Warehouse, skirt: Sainsbury's, shoes: George at ASDA
This coat is a different shape to the ones I would normally pick out but I actually love the more masculine look of it as it helps to toughen up my girlier outfits and adds a much needed dose of cool. The fact it is a gorgeous dark navy wool also helps, this is sure to be a classic in anyone's wardrobe!


Just look at the gorgeous gold buttons too! When I unwrapped the coat, each of these buttons was individually wrapped to prevent them from being scratched- now that's attention to detail...


Just look at that smug grin! I had said to Mark that I was looking for a navy jumper just the day before and I found this in the Warehouse sale for just £12. It is a lovely slim cotton knit and has really cool semi-sheer sleeves too which make it much more interesting. I know I will be getting a lot of wear out of it this Autumn/Winter!


I found this cute checked wool mini skirt in Sainsbury's a few weeks ago but had forgotten about it until Jen was asking about yellow wool suits on Twitter, whoops! I love wool mini skirts and this will look equally good with thick cable knit tights as it does with nude ones although I'm not ready to give up (nearly) bare legs just yet! This bag is one of my favourites and I always seem to pull it out at this time of year, the red is perfect for jazzing up duller colours... 


Are you a Joules fan?

P.S. Joules sent me this coat to review but if I didn't love it, I wouldn't feature it!

Lucky you, what a great coat! It's like a birthday present in itself!! I have a short, navy pea coat (bought from Laura Ashley last autumn) and definitely agree that it's a versatile classic.

Love the coat and I just saw that skirt in Sainsbury's but sadly not in my size - did you see the awesome matching jacket as well?

I'm a huge Joules fan, I wash and wash my dresses from there and they still look good. Amazing quality. Love this shape jacket on you xx

I am such a fan of Joules. They have some great pieces. The jacket is so lovely. I need a proper coat for the winter I think.

I love that coat and I can't believe that skirt is from Sainsburys! I will be trying to hunt that one down for sure!
