Shades of Blue

Marks & Spencer have just launched their new Autumn collection.

A couple of weeks ago they dropped me a little note to ask if I’d like to choose a cheeky piece for my ‘back to school’ wardrobe.

To be perfectly honest, my first response was (probably the same as yours) “M&S… really?”

I thought that they couldn’t possibly have anything that was ‘me’, that it would all be outdated and frumpy.

I was totally wrong.

The new designs are nothing like the old M&S and I (along with the rest of the country and British press) have been totally blown away, especially by their collection of oversized, pastel winter coats.

With a vast waiting list, the pink one sold out before it even hit the stores and the other pastel shades are well on their way to extinction.

I chose the baby blue number, and I’m already totally besotted with it.

It’s “oversized” so you can wear a cosy jumper underneath and wrap yourself up in it like a blanket.

Especially dreamy with the lapels folded up, keeping your neck warm.

I’m pretty sure they’ve all sold out in stores, but you can find a few left online.

I wore mine with skinny jeans, Converse All Stars (with anchors, naturally), navy jumper and rope necklace.

For a working lunch at 202…

Followed by a drive with Kimberley, roof off, music turned up and singing along to anything that popped on the radio! (Still nice & toasty in my blanket of a coat.)

And then home for sushi and movies.

Autumn is officially here, the nights are getting longer… am I the only one who’s actually kind of enjoying it?
