You can never go wrong with a Camel Coat and it should be a classic pieces in your wardrobe. Let me show you how I styled mine.
But first – I hope you all had a nice Easter weekend! I spent it with my husband, in-laws and grandparent in-laws (is that a thing – i’m not sure of the proper name) so it was very relaxing. We had a big family lunch at Clarke’s Standard which is a new restaurant in downtown Athens (post coming soon) and then a home cooked lunch on Sunday! All very delicious.
I wanted to share with you a dress I picked up for a steal when I was in London. It was £12.99! We were up in London, on our way to dinner one evening and browsing some of the shops, when I found it. I paired the dress with a classic camel coat that has a fun pop of red to it, my OTK black boots and a toiletry bag that I use as a clutch.
Since I bought the coat in one size up I can also fit a blazer underneath. Therefore, I wore my tuxedo blazer that I got for a bargain here! I like that the blazer gives me the option to cover my shoulders even after taking my coat off. Especially, because this dress just has thin spaghetti straps.
It has been a while since I did a ‘Wish list’ and I do not think I have ever done one specifically for bags! Here are just a few bags I have my eye on. The Boy Bag and Double Flap (M/Lg) are 2 classic bags that I do not think you can go wrong with. The keepall I think would be great for short get aways or even as a carry on bag. However, I can’t decide on what size would be the best. What size do you think is best? This backpack looks great for everyday use and I love all the pockets on it. I just became away of this Chanel tote and think it would make a great everyday bag – something you can just throw everything into and go.
I saw this All Saints skirt while I was doing some Christmas shopping a few days before Christmas. However, I decided to wait thinking it may go on sale after Christmas. I lucked out! I ordered it online in January at 20% off. It is a great black denim skirt that wraps around making it a little bit different. I paired it with my new favourite shirt which was a gift from my mum and it is the softest most comfortable shirt I have. They make it in a dress but I know the shirt borderlines on looking like pyjamas so I thought the dress crossed that line.
My Stuart Weitzman OTK boots are my most worn, favourite boots year after year and so it should be no surprise I paired this skirt and top with them. I just think they go with everything and make such a statement in a simplistic way.

It’s been a little while since I have done a fashion post. I have some planned for later posts but in the meantime here is some fashion inspiration. I am loving blue and white right now. I think it is perfect for the warmer months! Check out a few items on my current wishlist (definitely a wish list since many of these things are investment pieces $$).
