Dressing up a raincoat
Raincoat: H&M (old - and taken in to make it more fitted), Scarf: F+F, Striped top (just seen): Primark, Cardigan (also just seen): New look, Jeans: Very, Leather boots: Duo, Leather bag: Betty Jackson.Black, Gloves: Accessorize, Frizzed hair: c/o The Rainy British Weather. (Thanks, Mother Nature.)
I'm doing well with my Winter Edition Challenges this week (see my last two posts) - so far I've done all three up to now! (Though the Open To Interpretation challenge might be a sticking point. We'll see.)
Dressing up a coat was another one I was looking forward too when Kayla announced the challenges - I already dressed one up recently here, albeit in a slightly different way with a necklace over the top. I often put fabulous scarves, brooches and necklaces over my outerwear; I simply can't bear to hide beautiful accessories in the winter.
Now I know what word comes to mind to describe this outfit! (This is from the combination of a long coat, patterned scarf in a bow like a cravat-thing and knee high boots):
Dandy. I just know it's the word my dad would use to describe this.
Hope everyone's having a nice week!
