It’s a transitional time of year, some days are freezing cold, others are faux summer’s days. What’s a stylish gal to do?


Layering is key and I picked up this uber chic Belted Truster Coat (£85) in light salmon from Topshop in their recent spring drop.

Lightweight yet mcuh warmer than a mac, it is the ultimate piece of transitional outerwear and I love the lovely light hue which makes it perfect for the warmer months too.

Pink to make the boys wink, in my case, my 3 boys!

I’m totally obsessed with it! Tailoring is one of this season’s key trends so I’m expecting to get a LOT of wear out of it.

I also grabbed this Shaggy Faux Fur Gilet in the sale, reduced from £65 to £30. Fabulous for those days when a coat is not required and it’s timeless too, so it’s perfect for A/W next year and the next…and the next.

Under the layers is a lace sleeved sweater (I love contrasting textures) I bought from Oasis at Christmas and the skirt is a dreamy 70’s style pleather (faux leather) number from Warehouse, picked up just two weeks ago.

Think denier tights (I believe these were 100-time for the big boys as the temps were beyond cold) and brown boots were c/o Jones Bootmaker-strong, classic beauties that fit perfectly with the whole retro 70’s vibe.

The black shopper is Topshop too and a steal at £30.

I was about to board a train from York to London when we grabbed these snaps. York train station is rather beautiful. The entire station was built on a curve, so it looks and feels incredibly impressive. The perfect spot for a quick fashion shoot don’t you think?
