The Tan Coat & Burberry Scarf


The Tan Brown Coat And Burberry Scarf

I’ve had this Topshop Tan Coat for years (you may remember it from this post) but I haven’t ever worn it since the first time as I’ve always felt it was too big. It is quite largely fitted, but as it’s absolutely freezing now and I need to layer up, I thought it was time to wear it as it’s a coat that fits over the top of thick knitwear. When I look back at those photos from 2013, I really notice how far I’ve come with blogging and how much better the photography/editing is as the years have gone on. I feel like I’ve changed a lot too, especially facially as I don’t have the baby face look as much anymore, thankfully!

I decided to pair my Topshop Tan Coat with my PAIGE Verdugo Transcend Jeans in Black Shadow, an ALLSAINTS Knitted Jumper, my new Burberry Large Chestnut Brown Scarf, my Celine Nano Luggage, and my Celtic & Co. Chelsea Boots. Wow that’s a lot! I always forget how many layers I have to wear when it’s this cold. I thought the whole combination of black, brown and cream was really nice together and complemented the scarf beautiful, especially with the coat too. I’d wanted a cashmere Burberry scarf for so long and I finally picked one up when I was in London, so I’m happily wearing it now! Anyway, this might be one of my favourite outfits for Autumn! I also really like how the photos turned out as the location is very London inspired as well. What do you think?


What I Was Wearing:
Coat – Topshop (similar)
Jeans – PAIGE
Knitwear – ALLSAINTS
Bag – Celine
Scarf – Burberry
Boots – Celtic & Co. (similar)

      Thanks, Lee πŸ™‚

    • November 1, 2016 / 12:18 am

      Yeah, it fits quite good with thick layers underneath like I was wearing πŸ™‚ Thank you!

    Good job layering up. (No one’s doing that here; we have yet to have a single evening below 5ΒΊ C and it’s almost November. I don’t understand that at all.)

    Oh, and that scarf is just wonderful.

    • November 1, 2016 / 12:19 am

      For me once it gets to about 10C and below, it’s much too cold so I’m layering up! Crazy it’s not been that cold for you!

    Your face sure did change, just a tad. Beautiful then and now. I actually like the oversize fit of this coat. Very trendy. Aren’t you lucky to finally get the cashmere scarf. I love the color you got, very pretty.

    • November 1, 2016 / 12:19 am

      Thank you, Idu! Yeah, very lucky to finally get this one, I love it!

    Hi Lorna, what an amazing outfit. I really love that coat, very autumny. That scarf is amazing too, looks so warm.
    Cute Chelsea boots, but I was actually hoping to see you in wellies πŸ˜‰ . But all in all a very good choice.

    • November 1, 2016 / 12:20 am

      Yeah I don’t think wellies would go with this look, ha ha. I’m planning on wearing them to the farm this week though so maybe they might make an appearance! πŸ™‚

      • November 1, 2016 / 4:32 pm

        Oh joy, I can’t wait. You look so good in wellies.

        • November 1, 2016 / 4:45 pm

          Thank you!

      Thank you πŸ™‚

    This is the first time that I’ve seen this coat as your previous post with it predates my reading of your blog by quite a long time. I’ve clicked through the link you’ve provided though so that I can see the previous outfit and I very much like both of them. πŸ™‚ The boldness and brightness of the white jeans mixed with all those browns in the older shoot is lovely. However, on balance, I have a preference for the look in this entry as I prefer the shoes in this one and I think that scarf is absolutely gorgeous (especially with the black jeans). πŸ˜€

    I think the coat itself is really classy and such a great autumnal colour. It’s a pity that you’ve not felt inclined to wear it more as it looks great. Honestly I don’t get any feel, from looking at either set of shots, that the coat is too big. It looks just right. πŸ™‚

    • November 1, 2016 / 12:22 am

      Thank you, Steven πŸ™‚ Oh so you got two outfits in one then with this coat since you hadn’t seen it before. I think I definitely prefer this look as I wouldn’t wear those brown trainers I had on with it before anymore really. I think if I layer this coat up with thick jumpers underneath like I did, it fits so much better. It’s big and it hangs if I don’t have thick layers, so I think that’s the way forward with it!

      • November 1, 2016 / 8:49 pm

        Sounds good to me. πŸ™‚ I’m glad that there is a way forward as it’s far to nice an item to never be worn or seen. πŸ™‚

        Oh yes, it was certainly two outfits in one today. πŸ˜€ Very much a bonus!

        • November 1, 2016 / 10:09 pm

          I’d say so πŸ˜€

    I love tan coats and yours is absolutely gorgeous! I liked it with the Burberry scarf, it really looks chic and cosy – an outfit perfect for autumn, with the lovely booties too, and the bag. True, when we think of something we do some years later, we see that we have improved! I confess I love photography, but when it comes to myself it’s not my cup of tea, but I really enjoy your pictures, they are really great, so good quality! Hope you have a very nice week, dear Lorna, you look exquisite!

    • November 1, 2016 / 12:23 am

      Thank you so much, Denise! That means a lot to me (and Adam) that you pick up on the photography too and really enjoy it. I’m happy you love the outfit too!

      Thank you!

    You look lovely Lorna and I adore this outfit on you! The combination of colours is so classic and elegant, and you look very chic! It’s always fun to rediscover clothes from the past, and style them in a completely different way to give them a new lease of life!

    p.s – It was really nice to see your blog post from 2013 with the same tan coat. And what do you mean? Your baby faced innocence was endearing!

      Ha ha, if you say so! I guess we never like our old photos of ourselves, do we? Really happy you love the look though!

      • November 4, 2016 / 11:26 pm

        Sometimes I do cringe when I look back at my dress sense, but generally I feel happy seeing photos from the past, as I’m a very sentimental person. You should embrace those old photos too Lorna! xx

        • November 4, 2016 / 11:29 pm

          That’s a good way of looking at it. I am very sentimental too with most things xx.

    This is very autumnal and cosy outfit, especially the lovely coat! It looks very good on you, and I think, that one a bit oversized coat is a must, as you said:-)
    Sometimes is really cold outside in November!

    • November 5, 2016 / 10:23 pm

      Thank you so much! So glad you love them!
