The Checked Trench

Photography by Simon Creasey

January has been a pretty dry month in terms of new purchases but I'm finally starting to feel inspired again by the newness dropping on both the high street and from my favourite designers.  I recently picked up this checked trench coat with my Spring wardrobe in mind, because as I mentioned in Friday's post, with some things you've got to act quick.  It is still technically Winter so I did have to layer under this trench because it is much thinner than the wool outerwear that I've stockpiled over the past few months.  My usual M&S thermal and a cashmere polo neck kept me warm enough but I did want to put a slight Spring twist on the look, because quite frankly I'm just so over Winter, so I swapped my usual denims for these white straight leg jeans.

If you want to see what else I've been buying then my first high street haul of 2018 will be up on my YouTube Channel this Sunday at 7am.

        And last question, did you take your usual size or size above?

          I took a size up because I like things to fit oversized 🙂 x

    Loving the white straight leg denim! So hot right now! I’m definitely looking to get a pair myself. I want it to be spring now too!

    Love the checked coat! And was excited to see the white jeans as I just ordered a pair for myself and am thinking they’ll go with everything I wear over my blue/black/grey denim but will bring a fresh look to all my tops! Also headed to a warmer part of the country for vacation in a few weeks so they’ll feel better there than the all dark I get caught up in wearing in New York winters.

    PS – Judith looks perfect with the coat! Was she consulted on the purchase??
