The Yellow Coat

Coat – H&M / Jumper – M&S / Joni Jeans – Topshop / Bag – Zara Mini Shopper / Slipper Shoes – New Look

Last night I was on twitter and came across a picture of this yellow coat from H&M.. it reminded me immediately of this picture of the beautiful Olivia Palermo I’d seen and I HAD to try and find it. As luck would have it it was in the sale (kerching) and I ordered it this morning. I thought it might be fun to put together a ‘steal her style’ post since the yellow coat is very much the statement in Olivias look here. I can’t imagine I would wear leather look leggings/trousers with it but I will pull out my skinny Joni jeans from topshop and a polo neck for sure. Super chic.. we’re going to Paris in August and I’m almost hoping for unseasonably cold weather so I can wear it.

I am in love with these wool coats that have hit this season, the pink boiled wool coat from Topshop is absolutely gorgeous but as twice the price of this one (and with less shape to it) I wasn’t sure if I would wear it enough to justify the cost. This is perfect, a little shorter and boxier and it’s still a pop of colour but I feel like yellow will be easier to wear with my closet of black clothes than the pink. Very excited about this one, expect an OOTD featuring it as soon as it arrives!

    Ahh I am inlove with coloured coats this year as Im sure everyone else is, But I think Im going to invest in a coloured leather jacket as I can get the wear out of it during the summer months!

    The coat is absolutely gorgeous and a bargain at £50! I too would love to see some photos of your wearing it as it may persuade me to purchase it.
