It could just be the fact that we’ve not really had much of a summer here in Scotland (do we ever?) or I’m just really impatient and way too into colder-weather fashion, but I’ve been all over A/W like a rash since July. Every year I have to reign myself in from splurging on coats, boots, and scarves in mid August, which I’m bored of before the cooler air of Autumn even graces us.

I was in Zara at the weekend desperately trying to keep my paws off of the beautiful newness they have in store and make sure my purse stayed in my pocket – and then I saw it. The military coat of dreams and possibly the most extra (did I just say ‘extra?’ excuse me whilst I vom in my mouth) coat there ever was.

I’ll admit, it was pricy for what it is. But it’s also stunning. And believe it or not, I actually walked out of the store without the coat on Sunday but actually gushed about it so much to Euan that – bless his soul – he went out and got it for me after work on Monday. Best. Surprise. Ever.

Any, as I don’t really have much to chat about (well, anything that’s worth chatting about) on here, I thought I’d keep this post short. So – here’s the photos my pre A/W outfit that i’ll for sure be wearing all the through the season.

P.S. You know you love an item of clothes when you’re willing to go out in the rain and photograph it after work with makeup you’ve had on since 6am (or whats left of it) and damp frizzy hair. Enjoy…

Hello! I'm a pint-sized marketing graduate in Edinburgh. I spend too much time scrolling through Instagram, drinking copious amounts of coffee and thinking about what colour of lipstick works best with my outfit.
