Red strikes me as the color that demands (but rightfully deserves) attention and is always ready and willing to be the topic of any discussion. Recently, I've began the moderate transition of adapting this bold color into my closet and I'm beginning to believe that red really is the new black (well, for me anyway). Personally, I am thoroughly convinced that red is without end, a sultry color that looks divine on every skin tone, especially in lipstick form! 

As I went into London today to sight see and explore the beautiful city with my family, I wanted to create an ensemble that would be equally refined and comfortable as we would be walking around for majority of the day. Seeing that the weather is highly unpredictable, I reached for my Hunter Wellys and combined them with a pair of black wax-finish jeggings (leggings meet jeans), and opted for a simple long sleeve sweater, so that all the focus would be directed to this statement trench coat. 

Shoes: Back Adjustable Hunter Rain Boots / Pants: Urban Planet / Top: Ralph Lauren Long-Sleeve Striped Stretch Cotton Tee (Similar) / Coat: George Funnel Neck Coat / Scarf: Thrifted / Bag: Borrowed

  1. I just found your blog through Patricia's blog and I am hooked :) I love that coat and how you paired it. I'll make sure to visit often.

    1. Thank you, you are so sweet. I'll be living in this coat for the rest of the winter, I'm obsessed! Feel free to stop by anytime xx
