Burgundy




Maison Scotch peacoat (old but similar here), Jigsaw duffle bag (a/w2014 but similar here),
  H&M cashmere jumper, Jack Wills jeans, Zara espadrilles


When I do colour, I can do full on colour but in general, I err on the safe side with the usual grungey tones, especially in the winter months. But a little injection like this deep hued burgundy can make quite a nice difference to the usual outfit and make it a little more interesting.

My Maison Scotch coat has been going a few years now - a quite heavy wool mix number and is actually a design sample. And though I put on the Nike Roshe this morning, I wasn't feeling the love for them and went back to the animal print espadrilles I picked up in the summer and which I still haven't got round to putting away for the winter. Which led me on to thinking that I might possibly need a winter version of these animal print shoes in a grey/monochrome tone. Right?

  1. Burgundy is an underrated colour for a coat! I love it!

    1. It is isn't it - you need to get the right shade though. The reddish toned rather than blue toned ones do nothing for me!

  2. They had some similar cute ones on sale at & other stories in Oxford Street (terrible shopping spot, I know)...but I don't see them online. I think they were a Vans collab?

    For me it's all about navy and grey and khaki is my "colour injection", but basically I feel the same way as you do about colour!

    1. Vans will have something in their collection but I've never gone for Vans yet - not quite sure why because if you were going to do a skate pump, surely they would be the first port of call.

      And khaki is good - it's a colour!

    1. Thank you! I do suit colour but I think everyone's eye is trained to seeing me in a dull palette so it usually comes as a bit of a shock to people. The burgundy is a bit of an easy on the eye though.

  4. Burgundy is such a warm colour, it looks great on you! Loving the shoes as well. Hopefully it won't get too cold and you can keep wearing them for a bit longer! Jane x

    1. Well I think I was being a bit silly as I know that I could wear these shoes a bit longer if what I'm looking for is a skate pump in a similar vein. These are leather anyway so I might just eek these out and save myself some time, effort and money.

  5. I am now mourning that I didn't manage to get a coat in this colour whilst I was in Spain....love this on you and I know this colour would go with so much stuff in my wardrobe! I may just have to order the Missguided one you've recommended....that is a great alternative to the one I was looking at! xx

    1. I have to say, I do love the colour of this coat - it's not a very easy shade to find out there. But the Missguided one looks like a good alternative - I can't vouch for it in real life as I've not seen it though but I'm going by style.

  6. Loving that shade on you. I packed my slip on trainers away for the winter as they are fabric and am missing them so much I just had to buy some new ones, my lace up Stan Smiths are just too much effort sometimes!!

    1. Do you know something Rachel. I never untie my laces. I somehow manage to put them on and take them off without messing around with the laces which is why I reach for them so often as they are practically slip ons. And I do the same with my Cons and my Nike Roshe #lazy

    2. My kids have mastered this trick, but I haven't!!

  7. Love that coat on you and I love that colour. Haven't seen any nice ones that colour in wool. The Missguided one doesn't seem to have any wool despite being called a wool coat!!

    1. I think I was trying to get the shape and style of the coat without going over budget. I saw some beautiful looking ones but they were in the hundreds! I did see this one in M&S which is 70% wool but a different style to mine - much longer. The colour looks lovely from what I can make out. http://www.marksandspencer.com/wool-blend-2-button-long-length-overcoat-with-buttonsafe/p/p22409729 but in general they seem to be few and far between :(
