I recently saw this coat on another bloggers Instagram and I immediately had the urge to go out of my way to track it down to try on. I was straight on the phone to the Mango store in my city and just like fate they had one returned to their store in a size small. Defos fate. I went in the next day to try it on and evidently I left with it in a large paper bag only ten minutes later. I was concerned that it might be too big on my small shoulders but I now actually like how boxy and oversized it looks. It was quite pricey at £79.99 but it’s the perfect throw on coat for Spring/Summer. It’s also very refreshing to wear outerwear that isn’t black for a change!
I’ve teamed my new summer coat with a stripe-tastic outfit. Realistically, this outfit goes against all the fashion rules but somehow it works. Keeping things interesting by mixing old and new pieces from my wardrobe but also horizontal and vertical stripes. This outfit still works because I’ve kept the look monochrome with black and white stripes under the light cream coat. My accessories are also black so that they don’t add to an already busy outfit – I’m not that a daring, yet.
