Dusty Pink

Months ago it was fashion forecasted that pastel coloured coats, in particular pink, were set to be hot this Autumn/Winter. For the past 2 or 3 years at Winter time I've worn dark coloured coats- black, blue and chestnut- but this year I myself was really drawn to go for a lighter colour. In last month's Vogue I simply fell in love the new collection by Marks and Spencer's and their new campaign featuring of all the famous UK leading ladies. An item that lept out of the ad to me had to be the blush pink coat worn by Karen Elson- which promptly sold out! I just knew pink was the way to go this season. I also saw this dusty pink coat by Zara in magazines but it was virtually impossible to get hold of and I didn't want to pay double for it on ebay. I almost gave up until I decided to give my local Zara a phone call and to cut a long and boring story short she was mine and it's been permanently attached to my body ever since. 

Its been such a busy week and I i've been simply useless at taking the time to stop and photograph my outfits. I wouldn't think to wear this dress in the autumn/ winter months but I was feeling like wearing a touch of colour yesterday.
