Warm browns with dark green and aubergine + Style With a Smile link up

I’m a sucker for buying coats in the sales; even though I have lots already, I just can’t resist a bargain. I wear my long camel coat so much that I wondered if I could justify buying this brown one as it’s quite similar. But of course I caved and bought it (browsing Brand Alley is far too tempting!).

By teaming the coat with tan trousers and a brown hat it allows the colour accents and gold jewellery to stand out.

This classic tobacco brown shade will work well with lots of different colours, including neutral hues as well as rich jewel tones. It would also look very chic with a black roll neck sweater and trousers, but I wanted to add some colour. It’s very rare that I dress head-to-toe in neutrals. By teaming the coat with tan trousers and a brown hat it allows the colour accents and gold jewellery to stand out. I’d completely forgotten I had this hat – it was hidden under a stack of other hats in the wardrobe! It was a nice surprise to find it again!

I often wear these trousers with a navy roll neck sweater, but I wanted a change so chose this dark green jumper instead. I bought it from Laura Ashley a couple of years ago. The last time I wore it on the blog was also with brown…in February. I guess I’m a creature of habit! Maybe I should try some fresh colour combinations. I do like how the warm browns with dark green and aubergine keep the colour palette muted without looking dull. It also helped that the sun was shining which brought out the gold jewellery and hardware on my bag.

Featuring check print, faux fur and crystal embellishment, these trainers are fun and quirky.

Wearing trainers for work is now a regular thing for me, but that doesn’t mean my footwear has to be boring! Featuring check print, faux fur and crystal embellishment, these trainers are fun and quirky. They were also a pre-Christmas sale bargain. They pinch a little on my bunions but I’m hoping they will stretch over time. It’s a shame my trousers partially cover them…those faux fur strips are so strokeable! Now I’m thinking I could wear them with dark green tights and a skirt to really show them off!

Do you like to wear fun and quirky trainers? Or do you prefer a more classic style of flat shoe?

  5. Hi Emma , I love the pine green color with the brown, what a beautiful combination on you with your coloring and hair ! I love the addition of the purple bag too in the mix, rich colors! No wonder you bought that coat, it is so pretty on you! I have more coats than I need too, here in the South! Those sneakers are so cool and fun! Love the color, the fur and the plaid detail.
