The Burgundy Duster Coat And Suede Skirt
I’ve been trying to write this blog post for quite a few days and I’ve just been sat here this week with serious writers block. My mind has just been blank anytime I’ve tried to write something, which is really unusual for me actually as my words usually just flow. The only thing I can think to do right now is just describe where we took the photos, and that was in a new location called Cavendish Road here in Bath. It’s a really fancy street next to the golf course, and turned out to be beautiful for photos. We shot them last month and I thought this outfit was ideal for the scenery around me.
I was wearing a Coast Burgundy Duster Coat that I got in the sale last month after eyeing it up for over 5 weeks. I patiently waited for a price reduction, then another drop, so I got it for a steal! I layered it over my Topshop funnel neck top, and paired it with an old Lucca faux suede skirt. I did try it with my Gucci GG belt around the middle, but it was too much so I took it off. To finish it off, I wore my DUO brown suede boots to the knee, my Mulberry Small Darley bag in Oak, and my Swarovski Remix bracelets made into a necklace. I wasn’t sure on this outfit at first as you know I don’t like my knees, and boots that sit below can often highlight that area for me, so I had to make sure I was only using flattering angles or covering them up, ha ha.
Autumnal colours, if you haven’t already guessed, are my thing. I really love the rich tones of brown, taupe, burgundy and anything deep like this, so this outfit combination I’m really fond of. I thought a smaller bag was the way to go too to not overwhelm things. Speaking of which though, I have been eyeing up the new Rebecca Minkoff bags which I think would be so cute for the festive month. Funnily enough though, there’s actually no new designer bags I’m saving for, or shoes, so I’m looking around at the smaller brands at the moment. Have you got a new bag? And with that, it looks like my writers block has gone because I just started writing anything, ha ha. Of course, do let me know what you think of the outfit as always. Lorna xx.
