Outfit of the Day: A Vintage Pink Coat

I believe there is something positively magical about taking a piece of clothing that already has it’s own history, and maybe a few more miles on the clock than yourself, and restyling it to give it a whole new lease of life!

While I have a tenderness for trends and am particularly prone to pastels, when it comes to fashion it is nice and novel to have an item that nobody else has. So when I found this vintage pink coat recently I was truly tickled pink and had to shout it from the mountain tops! Unfortunately we don’t have many mountains in Bristol, so I made do with the nearest hill…

This was a cold day in Bristol, so I wrapped up warm with two shades of grey in the form of woolen Miss Selfridge* tights and Dorothy Perkins brogues. My monochrome skater dress, as featured here, and my leopard print belt from ASOS*, which was a wonderful welcome present from Access All ASOS. Undoubtedly though, the star of the show is the beautiful coat which was originally from Jane Norman, with its big cute buttons and a collar that’s easy to pop!

Until next time Hemsters,
