I love this berry coloured coat in photo 1, and really enjoy wearing it with my berry OTK boots and my Kooples scarf. This is a good outfit for the commute, comfortable warm and the coat, boiled wool, takes being folded up on the train well. I have a pink Furla bag to finish off the outfit.

Photo 2 is a thrift store Zara coat, which is good, but not so warm, so I layer up, with ponte jacket, Uniqlo padded jacket that folds up super small, with OTK navy boots with black back. Again, good for the commute. And a scarf with golds blacks and gold, another favourite scarf.

Photos 4 and 5 is a Boden top, from the sale, which I like the v-neck and puff to the sleeves, with a Hobbs jacket. The skirt is a high low hem, and I think is good for cold urban weather.

The thing is I really like 1 and next Winter, this is what I want to aim for but in an Olive / kharki green. So a green coat, boots and bag - not all the same colour, but tonally working. If I trusted myself, to not change my mind, I would seek out bargains in the sale (accepting that I might need to let go of the aspiration to not shop until 27 March). My berry combination in 1 took 2 years to curate!

Any comments welcome. Thank you for looking.
