OOTD: Khaki trench coat

Khaki trench coat: Primark (similar)
Gingham flannel shirt: New Look
Black washed out ripped skinny jeans: F&F
Burgundy loafers: Zara (similar)

I came across this gorgeous Khaki trench in Primark during a manic browse last weekend and all my willpower just went out the window. I've been wearing my beige one to death and thought this would help to give it a break. Admittedly it's not quite warm enough yet to actually wear it as it's quite thin. But I've been rebelling against the elements. I'm feeling like a bit of a trendy Wendy in these ripped jeans. I finally took the plunge and treated myself and decided that I need them in every colour. They fit like an absolute dream! Naturally I got a light denim wash too. They add the perfect dose of effortless cool to an outfit and I feel like I'm more on trend then I usually am. I'm never on trend. Just one tip though. Don't fall over in them as you will end up with grazed knees. That lesson was learnt the hard way.


  1. I love the line "a bit of a trendy" haha I think like that sometimes too when I put ripped jeans on!

    The khaki and burgundy go so well together :-)

  2. I do like your new coat - I must treat myself to a new coat very soon.

    I don't think I will ever be a "trendy Wendy". I don't wear jeans let alone ripped ones - they just wouldn't be me!


  3. This coat is gorgeous!
