The spring green grass and flat light put a yellowy green colour cast over the pictures, and I’m nowhere near skilled enough to correct it properly! That being said, I still really like this outfit and wanted to share the images. Nothing here is brand new, but as is so often the case, this is the first time I’m wearing these pieces together.
This dress is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. In fact, I’m wearing it on the cover photo for my website! I bought it a couple of years ago, specifically for my friends’ summer wedding.

I’m wearing this Collectif swing coat all the time at the moment, and for good reason. It’s warm and practical and can be thrown over pretty much anything, it’s also got big useful pockets and the enormous faux fur collar is sooooo snuggly.
