Shades of Rust

Shades of Rust

What I Wore:

Coat: H&M

Faux Fur: Forever 21

Belt: Gucci

Skirt: Marks and Spencer

Handbag: Bessie

Shoes: Truffle

Today’s rich color palette is one I had such joy in preparing for you. Starting with an H&M “vintage” trench I found in a random charity shop. The vibrancy of this burnt orange shade inspired me to find complimentary colors that were reminiscent of Autumn leaves and mahogany. 

A faux fur shawl came next, then a structured lady bag and finally my first chance to wear my brown Gucci belt. I know, I know…every blogger/fashionista that inhabits Planet Earth has been photographed in these iconic interlocking G’s! But it’s still impossibly chic. 

I let my crushed velvet skirt in shocking gold peek out of the bottom of my coat for added punch. In fact, this is such a gorgeous skirt that I featured it in the blog post that precedes this one entitled: “The Gold Standard”. The amazing handbag seen here will also get the spotlight it deserves! Stay tuned for that post coming up shortly. 

Until then…long may you enjoy this coat weather we’re still experiencing here in England. If anything, it gives you the opportunity to keep warm in style!

Fashionably yours,
