I love a cream / light coloured coat, they make me stop and look and, usually, smile. And over the last week, I’ve seen and worn a few:
First one: shopping in New Look the other day, I saw this rather lovely mink (a darker hue of cream?) leather biker jacket. Its a great fit (close to the body, and also slim, but not tight, on the arms), so I am quite tempted. Only the leather, is actually a nubuck finish, so I shudder to think how it would look after a day out at the playground… Reduced to £40, its worth thinking twice about, though, no? Maybe some suede protector would help? Its a lovely creamy beige, not grey, not pink, not yellowy. I am talking myself into this one, I think…

Second: this coat is lightweight, so as soon as the weather warmed up a little, I happily pulled this old friend out. I bought it quite a few years ago in Sydney, when I was young and had lots of child free fun. Ah, the memories… I digress.
The rest of the outfit is a Massimo Dutti wool sea green and natural toned snakeskin scarf, Zara super skinny jeans and Kurt Geiger Willow ankle boots.

Lastly, while flicking through Vogue today, I saw this charming looking cream lace jacket that will apparently be coming to Hoss Intropia soon. I looked, its not on their website yet, but I’m looking forward to when it is. Its a darling little thing, isn’t it?!
