GREY, GREEN & ACID YELLOW

Boden jumper | Boden belt |Raoul clutch | Salt coat

Grey, green & acid yellow doesn’t sound very appealing I admit yet in the right combination this palette is simple sophisticated style.

Grey poloneck & trousers with an acid yellow belt

I’ve added my kimono cut wool coat of tonal greens because to be honest, I’ve just been dying to show it to you!

This coat is incredibly old, I bought it when the British label Saltwater was in its infancy. However it still looks immaculate & the unusual cut never fails to attract compliments. There’s no mistaking the superior quality of this heavy wool coat, it won’t ever date & keeps me toasty warm on the coldest midwinter day.

A simple black clutch is another of those must have items. Always useful when you don’t want your bag to over power your clothing ensemble, particularly in this case when the belt & the coat are big enough statements on their own. Never the less this over-sized butter soft leather clutch from Raoul has a little understated detail & is certainly no shrinking violet.

Incidentally – In keeping with my ethos of buying fewer items in a considered manner to style many different ways – I also wore the jumper here – the plexi pumps here – & the ring here.

    Absolutely stunning! And so stylish, Lady in grey! And the combination of acid yellow and grey- genius! Not mention the clutch (I have this thing for oversized black ones). xx Abby

      Ha me too Tracey! I haven’t bought any yet, can’t decide on pumps or strappy sandals. What are they like?

        I’ve featured them on my latest blog post. Kitten heel ( if I remember), tie around the ankle. The Faith ones I already have are yellow patent with purple soles. Fabulous x

          I’ve just been over – super cute suede kitten heels with lace up the ankle! Loving the blue of that dress too, matches my header perfectly 😉

      Thank you Monica – I agree it’s a real gem this one. Funny thing is I almost didn’t buy it because it was a little over my budget but my god has it paid for itself over the years!

      Thank you so much! I think the simplicity of this outfit appeals to me & of course a flash of yellow is always a great feature. That’s why I don’t understand how “they” (who?) say yellow is back – it’s never out!
      Hope to see you again Alison x
