Minx


I've got my name on the list when the Anya Hindmarch Barbour Minx Coat (on left) when it arrives in-store. But I'm also drawn to the Lavenham coat for a lot of bold brightness come next season.

A cute tartan shorter version is available from ASOS - mmmmm decisions, decisions.

Other stockist include Question Air, APC, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.

What coat to get for A/W10??? I need something that is relatively smart to throw on if its a wet and windy day to head to the office and suited to pushing the double buggy about in the local park. I love my Margaret Howell trench coat dearly but on certain blustery, showery days it doesn't seem to keep me dry.

Do I need another coat I hear you ask? I have so many already - but my shopping rule at the start of each season is - new dress, new shoes and new coat plus handbag. It helps freshen up what I already have, makes me think really hard what I REALLY NEED so I can avoid those impulse purchases. Of course as these are MY rules I do bend them a bit - swap out the coat for a jacket - this SS10 was a Reiss white Linen jacket. This AW10 shoes  will be a pair of boots. The dress....well I spotted this in the Question Air sale
Its a Hoss jumpsuit and at a bargain price #58 down from #145

  1. I actually really love the ASOS one...it's very 'Just Gone Fishing'. I live in my Barbour...yes yes, I know...how Alexa, but honestly I care little for that, I like it and its comfy! As for the jumpsuit..swooooooooon! Great taste from you as always!

  4. I've got an old H&M faux Barbour one but I need a new one and the Laverham is wonderful. I want a pea jacket for this season .
