h&m coat and bag.The story has a familiar beginning, a quick wander into H&M and as usual the ending seems the same. Before I knew it I was standing at the till thinking, '£24.99, for a coat?!' It's usually sometime in December, dressed head to toe in flimsy material and wearing the same leather jacket on repeat, I find myself questioning when the right (reasonably priced) coat for me is going to find its way into my life. My immune system can rejoice in the fact that this beauty has found its way into my life in September meaning winter colds and Northern rain can step aside.
In response to something I get asked quite a bit on Tumblr I'm introducing a new basics tag to my blog. The basics tag will track all blog posts that feature items that I believe together create a cohesive capsule wardrobe. Through introducing my favourite pieces, wardrobe essentials and giving my thoughts on my favourite high-street brands for design, fit and quality I'm hoping my basics series will provide an edited directory of affordable and realistic style. If you've got any requests, ideas or suggestions for the series I'd love to hear what you have to say over on my Tumblr ask page.
