It happened. And by 'it' I obviously mean I found the perfect camel coat - you know the one I've been searching for my whole life (maybe a slight exaggeration but...). 

Okay, fine, I may have not been searching for a camel coat my whole life but I've definitely been on the search for one for at least a good 2 years (no exaggeration this time) because there has always been something wrong with the ones I've come across in the past - you know how it goes; wrong shape, wrong length, wrong material, wrong shade... You get the idea! 

So when I was browsing the new Zara autumn collection online a couple of weeks ago and saw this - I'm not going to lie - my heart started beating a little faster. I then saw it in the Covent Garden store but was in a rush at the time so didn't get to, umm, give it my full attention (haha). I then saw it again maybe a week later again in the Covent Garden store but this time I made sure to try it on, of course this only made me fall even deeper in love with it but I put it back telling myself I didn't need another coat. Then after adding it to my online basket about 10 more times, dreaming about it and telling myself I did in fact need a new coat I finally purchased it, and boy am I glad I did!

I have a slight hunch that this is going to be my one outfit for autumn/winter that people will see me wearing and say "your seriously wearing that outfit again" to which I will reply "of course, you find the perfect camel coat and try not to wear it everyday".

Honestly though, this was such an easy outfit to 'throw' on and because all the pieces are so minimalistic the outfit made me look like I tried way harder than I realistically did, haha.

Knit Jumper - Topshop (last year)
Jeans - Topshop Leigh
coat - Zara
Ballet Pumps - French Sole
Bag - Balenciaga

The photos were taken in my favourite part of London - South Kensington, just opposite the V&A. South Kensington/Knightsbridge is probably my favourite area in London because everything is just so photogenic and well, cute (aka a bloggers dream) !!

Have you got a 'Camel coat'? How do you style yours?

  1. I can't wait to get my camel coat out again, I love styling it with all black like you have!

    Made In The 1990's.

    1. I know I think the camel and black work so well together !! Definitely going to be one of my go-to outfits !!


  2. I'm still searching for my perfect camel coat, such a timeless wardrobe essential. Of course Zara would be the place to find such a gorgeous coat! Love how you've styled it, simple is always best. Xx

    1. I'm so impressed with Zara's collection at the moment it's so lovey , they also have some other camel pieces so definitely have a look.


  3. Love, love, love the coat! I have had a big obsession with everything camel as well. I just recently bought a pair of camel gloves from Aldo! I have been wearing them every time it gets cold enough for it to be acceptable! haha
