Good morning everyone, todays attire is on camel and black. If there’s one classic colour combination that says sophistication it’s camel and black in my opinion. It’s also the perfect combination during Fall/Autumn. So don’t be surprised by the array of combinations you will see on most people! I Adore a head to toe black outfit with a camel coat or jacket thrown over the shoulders or worn like I have here. Such an easy effortless outfit to put together, don’t you think so too?
In Mum life Zeke had a Greek day last Friday and all the children in his year had the option of dressing up. So as I had already bought a greek soldier costume for Wyatt when he was in year four, Zeke had no choice but to wear that. Haha, he actually loved it I’m pleased to say, and also saved me the time and money on not having to buy another costume. Glad I decided not to throw it out, I gave myself a pat on the back for that and why not!
Right lets get back to this ensemble at hand and to this camel coat which is from Karen Millen. You would have seen it before in my previous posts, if not take a look HERE. This coat is just beautiful and I bought it last year. In my opinion we should all own at least one camel coat in our wardrobe. A perfect investment piece and one that can be worn year after year as it’s a timeless classic. This camel coat has been perfectly tailored and fits beautifully. Made from premium Italian fabric, which is evident as to how soft it feels.
Karen Millen are brilliant at updating their coats and at the same time maintaining the Karen Millen signature look. So it’s no surprise that year after year they bring out new styles which I tend to gravitate towards. This is so evident in this years camel coat, you don’t take my word for it, take a look for yourselves HERE.
Now lets get onto the all black shall we and begin with the black ribbed roll neck jumper. This is also from Karen Millen and is from their A/W18 collection. Another investment piece specially for Fall/Autumn. A long sleeve skinny chevron rib design jumper that is extremely cozy. Fits like a glove and feels so soft and snugly, what more could I ask for.
Moving onto the bottoms and I opted to wear my rats leggings which are from Sass and Bide. I bought these years ago from Net-A-Porter on sale. So pleased that I did as they sure have lasted the test of time. They are great when it comes to layering as I personally don’t like to overheat and these are very thin in material. So wearing them with knee high boots is just ideal and practical. With a slight shine to them they are just how I like them. One of my favourite pieces to wear as they are just so comfortable and also a very versatile piece of garment.
Talking of knee high boots these are my recent purchase from Carvela at Kurt Geiger. You may have seen me wearing them on my last few posts. I can safely say they are my current favourite boots which I have been wearing on repeat and thats no lie. A great pair of boots that would lift any outfit whether it be a crisp workwear or a laid back weekend attire.
The material is in this gorgeous butter-soft suede with a smooth lining which adds to the comfort. This tall boot is detailed only with light tonal stitching, and has tapered mid heels which are very comfortable to walk in. It also has pointed toes which creates a chic silhouette and works so well here. The style of the boot is called Whirl and if you are interested they are on sale now. I am sure they still have quite a few of the sizes available in stock.
Now to the accessories I decided to team my Modalu Rosie shoulder bag with this ensemble. An opulent black bag that can transform any ensemble, it’s so chic and elegant with plenty of room and space. The bag is in a square silhouette and made from brushed velvet and satin fabric. Inside there is a triple compartment for all your essentials. Finishing off with a flap and the Modalu branded magnetic closure. Such a sleek bag which is currently on sale!
Finishing off my attire I grabbed my Le Specs sunglasses in the Rapture style. Finally on my lips I wore the shade Teddy Bear from Lime Crime Velvettines. My Cylinder Ring is from Aurate New York and this beautifully completes my camel and black attire!
