I love pink and it makes me happy when I wear it . I know it isn’t really cool or edgy but it is really feminine and gets you noticed in a nice way.

Coats are my thing, others love shoes or bags I collect coats. I love that I can throw them on over anything, add a great bag and pair of shoes and you are done.

I almost bought the Freda cashmere coat   but felt I would get more wear from Winter White one, I have featured extensively on the blog. I came across this image from the Celine collection 2012, I love this look.

Now coming into Spring pastel shades come into their own,we are all tired of black and nothing heralds the start of Spring more than buying a lighter weight coat.

My good friend Shanaz alerted me to this fabulous coral pink coat in the sale from ISSA London. I snapped it up immediately it is too thin to wear now I couldn’t resist trying it out but I was frozen.

I will be living in this coat,  as soon as it gets warmer, I will be pairing this with a fur collar from Ducie.

I think this more salmon pink suits everyone, the very pale colours tend to wash you out and the hotter pinks can quickly take you to Barbie territory.

Today I am teaming it with a cashmere tracksuit by Eric Bompard, beenie by COS and flats by Celine.

I love this colour paired with a striped sweater or pale blue sweater or a simple white t-shirt and jeans. This shade of pink looks magnificent paired with red.

 

There are some great options out there, I have to say ASOS has an amazing collection..
