In typical British fashion I’m going to start this post by talking about the weather. We had snow this week in London, only a dusting that didn’t settle due to the heavy rain but many parts of the UK got a fair amount. As pretty as snow looks, I think it’s a nightmare, we aren’t cut out for it here, so I’m pleased it’s all gone now.
This leads me onto my outfit today, it’s been so bloody cold here, so I’ve been trying out my different coats to identify which one is the warmest. I think this trusty faux fur jacket is the one to beat. I’ve had this vintage jacket since I was about 18. It was originally from Marks & Spencer’s and has the St Michael label, as it was known back then, clearly proving its a true vintage piece.
It was such a good find, I stumbled across it in a local vintage store, which sadly is no longer trading. I’ve owned this jacket for 12 years now and I love it as much as I did when I first spotted it. For this look today, I fancied wearing my berry coloured Fedora hat with the faux fur jacket, adding a cute and easy to wear floral dress, berry coloured jumper for warmth and fail safe ankle boots.
We wandered around the common, stopping off at the lake to take a couple of pictures in the glorious but very cold winter sun.
